My burger was undercooked. There are no partitions between the booths. The décor is nice otherwise. Expect a limited menu with above average prices. ($15 burger).

Had the Sunday brunch and the food was good. My only complaint was that everything seemed to have either butter, cheese, or cream in it and being a person with lactose intolerance, is made it hard to eat $20 worth of food.

Bantam Bistro just resumed their Sunday Brunch and we were the first patrons. The staff was a little late getting it all set up, to be expected since it was their inaugural, but it was well worth the wait. It's not the most lavish brunch I've ever been to, but every single item was exceptional. Light, tender Belgium waffles made to order with all the toppings, made-to-order omelets with some interesting mix-ins. Roast beef and ham carving station with the appropriate horseradish and mustard sauces. The steam table had a cauliflower gratin that made cauliflower my new favorite vegetable and a salmon dish that was divine. The bacon was crisp and the potatoes roasted to perfection. Even the green salad was innovative and there was also fruit salad, fresh baked croissants, muffins, and key lime tarts and mini-chocolate tarts for dessert. There is probably more that I can't recall, plus the usual juices, coffee, homemade jam, etc. We wished we could have stuffed ourselves more than we did. Definitely worth a trip!

We opted to eat here because we were not up to dragging back into town again and the menu looked good. The chicken was very tasty and beautifully presented; the pork chop also was beautifully presented, but it was not particularly tender. There was a lot of food on each plate - significantly more than either of us needed. The wait staff was pleasant, but not easily accessible.

Arrived two nights in a row about 10 minutes before the kitchen closed: Both times the staff treated us kindly and made us excellent meals.
