As usual an amazing lunch. New menu items intrigued us…club sandwich was packed with a lovely chicken breast, bacon and more. Enough for two meals, even though I have a healthy appetite . Delicious. The fish and chips was equally as good with four healthy...pieces of fish. Excellent French fries as a side to both meals. Everything arrived promptly. We have come to expect home cooked meals from Edward’s and today did not disappoint. Plus, amazing value.More

Made a reservation for 5:55 Sunday - received an email confirmation and 90 minutes before this time received an email reminding me and telling me to be on time. Arrived with an out of town couple on time to be told oh we can't hold...a table open when it is a buffet. WHAT?????? No mention on website when booking that it was a buffet and why the reminder. I have been to this restaurant many times and the food is very good but the attitude I have encountered over the years from both the owner and his wife is very arrogant and I am done.More

My mother made a reservation for Easter Dinner 2 weeks before. Speaking with with one of the owners she was told the restaurant would be open for Brunch on Easter Sunday and that there would be a special menu. Fast forward to 2pm Saturday afternoon...prior to Easter and by chance my mom called asking if they Sunday menu would be posted on their FB page. It was then she was told they decided not to open. When asked why the restaurant made no effort to contact her to let her know they claimed to have lost the phone number. Such poor customer service cannot be overlooked. Definitely will not be heading back to this establishment again.More

We have been dining at Edwards Bistro since they opened five years ago. Their new location has just made the experience better. Today's meal was lunch and it was great, as usual. What makes the meals here consistently good is the quality of the ingredients....Good breads, quality cheese, fresh vegetables, and homemade everything. The jams, ketchup, salad dressings, desserts...all are freshly made. Their prices are moderate and the service is always excellent. The restaurant itself as well as the washrooms are clean. The wait staff is polite and efficient. Their breakfast meals are a cut above the average breakfast and there is a good variety of dinner options. Reservations are suggested for dinners, especially on weekends.More

Such a scrumptious surprise. Heading east to Nova Scotia, looking for lunch. Tripadvisor brought us to Edwards Bistro. We’ll definitely keep this place on our travel list.

Wonderful home made food and very friendly staff. They were very kind to us and accommodating for our 1 year old. Vegetarian options were thoughtful, tasty, and filling. Thank you for a delicious Sunday brunch!

Cornwall and the Counties are rife with traditional breakfast spots - and some darn good ones at that. But that’s offered at Edward’s Bistro is a departure from the ordinary bacon and eggs special to a more refined and culture brunch selection. The bistro is...relatively small, but not cramped. It’s nestled right in the downtown core. The service I received was genuine, and caring. It feels like a happy place to be. The food was the star of the show. As it should be. The brunch poutine with smoked pork belly and poached eggs with Hollandaise was beyond my expectations, which are generally very high. The Mimosa was a nice treat, too! You need to eat here!More

Heard lots about the place and finally got to try it. The place is very clean all the way from the entrance to the very washrooms. Very cozy inside . You are greeted by extremely friendly Rosie which makes sure that till the minute you...walk out you are totally satisfied. The food . Well I went twice so far and withheld my review to the second time , just in case and I must say it it what it is - extremely yummy . It is inexpensive considering you have a full course meal from entree to delicious deserts . All made right at the establishment. And the ice cream - it’s a wow ! Home made wow . Will be frequenting this place for sure . This is a must try :) enjoyMore

Arrived at around 645 pm. I know this because I made sure it Wasn't a time frame that I could get an unnecessary parking ticket. First impression was exactly what I was looking for. Very modest from the outside with the big ol Edward's sign...hanging high. Once inside I was immediately relaxed and charmed by this gem Everyting was three punch combination perfectly executed followed by a knockout blow to the tastebuds. Rosie and her man weren't the usual hosts. Rosie was over the top with being original and real. We love nothing more than showing true colors from the get go and can't stand fake smiles etc or people just going thru the motions. We both met her husband and Rosie and the waiter I believe the name is Adam and briefly some other restaurant people that were enjoying their meals there all were very very nice. Rosie of course stole the show she was everything you could hope for in a greeter she was sweet, she was sincere, she was very colorful in her storytelling, but the bottom line is she was real explaining how her food process was done up to including her coffee making. All the while listening to this music in the background that we couldn't get our heads around but it was like a love song love song Like a Love Song of rock bands like Nirvana and Metallica but turned into love songs. It really kind of made the place borderline chic and draw the night we were trying to guess what songs were what. Food was out of this world. Spring rolls. A seafood noodle dish. Dumplings. To the chef...I hope your wife realizes how lucky she is to have met you. Lol. I'm kidding Rosie. You two are both awesome.More

Clean, chic interior with several levels for dining. We sat by fireplace and ate on a Saurday night. We enjoyed many choices from the Table Dhote Menu which had a charcuterie board to start with inlcluding cheeses, baguette, olives and aged salami. Then two of...us had escargots which were delicious and other two appetizers were a Caesar salad and house specialty of hand made spring rolls and shumai dumpling. Main courses chosen were a Filet Mignon w a red wine mushroom sauce, delicious mash and a vegetable medley w bok choy, carrot, beets. Second choice of main was salmon filet w a lemon hollandaise and. Thirdly chosen was two plates of the seafood monterosa pasta dish which came with at least 4 giant shrimp, sea scallops and salmon pieces in a rose sauce over fresh tagliettelle pasta.... Amazing service from the owner Rosie and all desserts served to us were house made which included white chocolate cranberry cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake, carrot cake and a dessert called leche flan which was like a cross between creme brule and a flan sweet. A great red wine bottle was served to us and total with tip was $225. An amazing meal, exceptional service and perfect price for quality and taste of our meals. Bravo!More
