I am working my way through the menu at this little diamond of a restaurant in in heart of Hamilton. The folks who have taken over this restaurant are delightful, and I find myself drawn to return again and again because I feel welcome here. The menu is a delight. The Blackened Salmon with wine risotto, Polish Dinner, Hamburger, Steak,... More

Over the years my friends and I, and various dates and I, have loved the bistro adjacent to what is known as "The Castle" in Hamilton, Ontario. Always on point has been the shaded patio and a wonderful brunch, with a beautiful curry sauce as the feature for eggs and wraps. Taken over! Yes, One Duke has changed owners again,... More

We were pleasantly met at the door by our great server, Mike, who took care of us all with a great smile and put up with all of our special requests, we... More

This restaurant is under new ownership and has been given new life! The interior has a fresh new look, more upscale than previous somewhat dingy environment. Favorites are still on the menu with a few added touches. Oysters on half shell still there! Service and service recovery very good. We requested a specific table when we made reservations but they... More

This place is great for a date. Great food and amazing presentation. We had scallops and portobello mushroom to start as a app. This dish came with 2 scallops for the price i think 1 or 2 more scallops would have done the dish better. We had the chicken currey and fish tacos for the meals and have no complaints... More

Thank you for taking the time and commenting on our 'little place'. We did a few more changes today and will be upgrading a little for the next 2 months. 'Great for a date' is quite a nice compliment. Paul is quite 'amazing'. More

I'd been to One Duke before, and thought it was good. My friend and I came for dinner, and I was excited to see their new menu. I had a salad with beets, greens, goat cheese, pear and red onion and it was delicious. Salads can sometimes be a bad value at restaurants, but this one was full of ingredients... More

My partner and I have been coming here for years and have seen many changes in staff, decor and food. There has recently been another make over inside and it's quite nice. Intresting paintings, tables and swoop ceiling. Staff is dressing more formally, yet very hip. Service was excellent today and other staff embers were very friendly. Lunch was delicious!... More
