This was my third time to the WPB for dinner. I have yet to be disappointed with the service, food and relaxed atmosphere The server, Dave, was fantastic, knowledgeable and very friendly. I had the warm beet salad as a starter, beautifully presented & absolutely delicious. For the entree I had the boeuf bourguignon with a demi-glaze sauce, smashed potatoes and roasted yellow beets. The meat was so tender I didn't really need to use a knife. With a special coffee to round off the meal. I have recommended WPB to my friends and I will be going again & again. A small quaint restaurant, that is always busy. I suggest making reservations More...

Everything was great but I felt the 10.00 price for a piece of carrot cake was a little steep; though it was delicious.

Birthday celebrations for my husband and good friend. The food was wonderful as always and our server was perfect. Sensed the pace of our celebration and was on the ready without being intrusive. The apps of fried cauliflower and green beans not to be missed. Great restaurant for ordinary dinner out or extraordinary celebrating. More...

Good atmosphere, food has food taste, but I made a mistake of ordering braised lamb shank and it had been cooked previously and warmed up. So the rule is don't order something that takes 2 plus hours to cook. More...

What a wonderful experience for our first time visit to this beautiful restaurant. We had a table with 19 people. They were so accomodating even when I kept adding more people. Dave our Server was incredible. Never made us feel rushed always kept our water glasses full and our coffee cups were filled non stop with fresh coffee. The food was amazing, beautifully presented and delicious. Great variety on the menu and fabulous dessert menu however we didn't have much room for dessert after the delicious meal. Thank you Dave and kitchen staff for making my mom's 92nd birthday such a wonderful experience. We will be back. I highly recommend this restaurant. 5 Star all the way. More...

Every single time I visit this restaurant, I am pleased with the meal and service. It is a great little place - definitely my favourite! It's the little touches (like cranberry and lemon in the water) and serving woman the wine first that are impressive. The menu changes which keeps you coming back for more! More...

The variety of food is excellent with items not always found in restaurants. The food is present beautifully and is always flavourful. The service however needs improvement. We waited almost a half hour to be seated even though we had reservations. As well, it took almost an hour for our entree to be served. I will go again because the food is excellent but service definitely needs improvement. More...

First time there, however friends we were with had been previously and raved about the food and service. I can tell you we weren’t disappointed and are still talking about how good our meal was and how great the service was. The menu is small but has enough to accommodate all diners and the prices were all reasonable. Highly recommend the tomahawk pork chop if they have it on special that night. More...

Meet a friend for lunch as it was half-way between towns we each live in. This was the first time either of us visited the restaurant, although it had been recommended by other friends.

My Mom and I visited today for the first time. We had only taken a few bites when we were already discussing returning again! The ambience is lovely, the service impeccable and the food is exquisite! They were kind enough to offer us a table, reservations are a must, and we understand why! Kudos to the owners, staff and chefs of this wonderful little gem. We barely left when Mom decided to run back in and buy a $100 gift card as a birthday gift for a loved one. What a pleasurable dining experience. The attention to details from drinks, plate presentation, cloth napkins, even the little appreciated extras in the restrooms were much enjoyed and appreciated! More...

Our appetizers were outstanding our server was a credit to his profession. My wife loved the Chicken and mother-in-law enjoyed the Salmon on a bed of beluga lentils. I had the Steak and Frites I found they used a little too much salt for my liking however our server made it right. More...

I love having lunch at your restaurant. The only drawback is the parking lot is small considering the amount of people who lunch there between 11:45 and 1:45. I usually book a later lunch or end up parking on the street. More...

We enjoyed our meal. My wife and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary and my sister's birthday. The service was excellent and the food was enjoyable. The only complained is that we sat in a booth and there were two men in the booth behind us that were very vocal and loud. It appears that the one man is a regular and he didn't have any issues being vocal. It at times was frustrating to carry on a conversation at our table. We have eaten at your establishment in the past and will return again. Hopefully on a night where it maybe little quieter. More...

Great place for a special occasion that is not overly priced. The food is SO good! We love the serving staff (Dave and Annie). They are very attentive to everyone in the restaurant, even when they are not your servers. We go there regularly and will continue to do so. There is the quaintest little patio that my husband and I often go to in the afternoon for a glass of wine and the baked brie. Life is good with West Plains Bistro in the world! More...

Nice, but limited choice. We found that there were only a couple vegetarian or healthy options. All three daily specials - soup, quiche, and pasta had meat. We ordered salads, which were both very good, but expensive. If you are looking for rich French food, this is the place. More...

Came here twice in one week...first time because we were in the area, and second time because the first time was so good. This place tends to get very busy, with the locals in the area. May want to make a reservation.First time, we had the pasta special, which was supposed to be with salmon but it came with shrimps... bonus!! :). Exceptional dish, great value. We came the second time to have the pasta special with the salmon, and we got that. I think, I liked the shrimp fish better. I rank this as one of the best casual restaurants in this area, and possibly in Burlington. More...

Both food and wait staff are excellent. I've never been disappointed whether dining with a friend or a larger group. Always try to get a reservation as they fill up quickly.

Excellent small restaurant. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have always been pleased. The food is interesting, well prepared and attractively presented. Prices are not extravagant, and staff is unfailingly pleasant and courteous. My only complaint is that it is noisy (beyond energetic!) which dimishes my appreciation and renders conversation almost impossible. Unfortunate, because this is not your local pub or roadhouse where noise levels are expected to be high! More...

Since my guest is gluten intolerant, this was likely not the best choice of restaurant. There wasn't a lot of for her to choose from. No gf hamburger bun, gf pasta was available.

Despite the restaurant being very busy, service was prompt, the wait staff efficient and friendly. More...

We attended this restaurant for a later linch at 1:30pm, our table was almost ready as we had arrived 15 min. early. We sat at the bar, had a glass of wine, and our table was available very quickly. We shared a poached pear and arugula salad, one person had curried mussels which was served with lovely baguette and they had ordered fries. The other person had a mushroom/ham crepe with a pommery sauce and a small salad. We had coffees and an absolutely delicious coconut cream pie. The food was delicious, all well prepared and presented well. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. More...

As always we thoroughly enjoyed our food and overall dining experience at 'the Bisto'. The wait staff are friendly, informed and personable. We happened to be there during the 'early bird' time and the three of us each chose a different entrée and agreed the food was not only delicious, but a great value too. Thank you for making my 65th Birthday with friends a wonderful occasion. More...

The staff were very cheerful and helpful. The chef, Brandon, really knows his stuff and we were eager to compliment him on his absolutely delicious and visually appealing creations. From start to finish, we all savored every bite and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Thank you, West Plains Bistro for making our special night so very delightful! More...

Memorable Evening due to Exemplary ServiceMy friend and I meet monthly in the GTHA for a long, leisurely dinner and West Plains Bistro was the restaurant of choice tonight. I was early, my friend was quite late. Annie, our server was delightful. She kept tabs on me (and my waterglass) and certainly never made me feel unwelcome, taking up a table for so long. Upon arriving, my flustered friend lost her earring back and was down on the floor looking for it. Back came Annie – down on her knees, flashlight at the ready. Despite encouragement to go back to her “real job”, Annie kept at it til the earring back was found. She read and honoured our pace for the evening, checking in with enough regularily for us to feel cared for without being interrupted. Pleasant, engaging and helpful, she really made the evening particularly memorable. My friend enjoyed the salmon early-bird special – and indeed, it was great value. I chose two appies instead. The pate was very tasty and beautifully presented. However, the lobster and leek was very dry, there was little lobster, and the balance between filling and phylo was very phylo heavy. In addition, it was overpriced for what arrived. I understand it is a relatively new menu item and encourage it to be rethought as it’s quite out of keeping with the consistently tasty and nicely presented food I’ve come to expect here. More...

We went on Monday Mussel night; turns out that it was half price wine night, too! We love the curried mussels and I also ordered their new sprout salad which was delicious and full of different tastes and textures. Price is $$ to $$$, but well worth it. More...

My wife Judy have been visiting the West Plains periodically for several years now, giving us time to sample other restaurants in the Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville area. The Verdict: No one does it generally so well and so consistently. The menu is always interesting, with just enough unusual approaches to tempt you (the chicken Piperade - however you pronounce and spell it - is a great addition), the presentation is lovely and the service - in our experience - quick and attentive. Hit the steak houses for steaks and the Italian restaurants for pasta if you like, but for a cozy setting, fine service and great taste this is still our choice. If you go, say "Hi!" to the server Dave for us. More...
