I've been to The Bold Knight for several of my birthdays and always been very pleased with the service and great food. The atmosphere is lovely, fine dining mixed with casual and family and it works well. The staff is always attentive and friendly. ☺

I would echo most of what richardkimbarbn said in his review. While the outer appearance and decor inside are rather dated and leave a bit to be desired, this place more than compensates in food quality, and friendly, attentive service. Three adults and one toddler...More

We had a homemade burger and a sandwich. We gave each dish a 10 out of 10! Our service attendant was fabulous, and the restaurant and washrooms were very clean.
