Why would you ever go to the Keg or any other 'chain' restaurant when you can have the real deal at Bistro Stefan. This food is one of Kingston's best kept secrets. Most people may not think about considering a restaurant in a Hotel - but think again. Our family recently went for my father-in-law's birthday. Decor and atmosphere was... More

Stopped here on our road trip back to Ohio. Chose it because of TripAdvisor reviews and it was the closest to our route 401. It was a great choice!!! Cozy place. Our waiter, incredibly attentive brought us a cucumber and chicken small treat to awaken our taste buds. After wards he brought us as much garlic bread as we requested.... More

after a hectic few days we checked into the hotel for a nite to relax. the staff recommend we check out the restaurant in the hotel, it was wonderful. Sat by a real wood fireplace, sipped wine, unwound, the staff were laid back, no one was pushy, the food was prompt, and good, again portion size just right.

Their special was all you can eat prime rib and it was wonderful. Portions were big and prime rib was just the way we like it. Lamb was also good. Staff were very friendly and attentive. They have good selection of wine and atmosphere is very cosy and warm.

I had celebrated my birthday here and it was one of the best. I also attended a wine makers dinner and just recently Thanksgiving dinner. The food is always well prepared and the service is great.

We didn't end up having dinner here as it was above our budget. The breakfast buffet was very good. There were several choices of breads/muffins, as well as yogurt and granola, eggs, sausages, potatoes, dry cereal and waffles/pancakes. They were a bit short staffed that day so we served ourselves and picked a table.

Dinner was great. Had a large group and everyone was served at the same time.Had the prime rib and it was cooked as ordered. Other quests shared that their meal was great. Even though we had a large group we did not feel out of place. Everyone was welcoming.

Food would have been great had it not been cold. Limited options potatoes were nasty. If it wasn't free I wouldn't go again

B&B breakfasts tend to spoil you and make restaurant fare seem pretty average.That said, the Fireside Inn rates include a full hot breakfast @ Bistro Stefan. It is totally serve yourself including napkins,plates, cutlery and coffee. Waitresses do clear the tables and are super friendly. They remember you if you return for a 2nd or 3rd morning! What impressed me... More
