Service was a bit slow given it was not busy but food was delicious. Servings were huge though wish we had shared our plate of pasta but who can actually complain about getting too much food. Will definitely be returning next time we are in...Brockville.More

It’s worth saying that we never considered the Buell Street Bistro until our go to restaurant had no reservations the night we were going out. It’s now definitely our new go to restaurant in Brockville. We were greeted and seated in the beautiful Fireplace dining...room, it was comfortable and tastefully decorated for Christmas. Our server Angie was lovely, she was attentive yet not overbearing. We had a two hour reservation and never once felt rushed. The food was wonderful; between us we had appetizers, soup and salad. Everything was on point. We chose different entrees and agreed that they were both excellent. My steak was perfect, cooked exactly the way I asked for. The desserts and specialty coffees were also top notch. 10/10 for a wonderful experience both food and service.More

We had an excellent meal at the bistro, there was a warm welcome as we arrived. We were unsure if we wanted to dine inside or outside, the server told us that there were two groups inside and that we might find it a little...noisy, so we opted for the patio. They offered to put the heater on, but that made it too hot and we were comfortable without it. The drinks arrived promptly and we soon followed by the food, which was plentiful and tasty. Our waitress was attentive and polite throughout. Would highly recommend.More

Excellent hospitality, service, food. The weather being beautiful, we were lucky enough to choose a table on their wonderful terrace. It's been our return for 5 years, and no regrets. We will return there on our next visit. Very flexible and accommodating for intolerances.

What a charming and delightful spot! The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly and patient with all our requests. We were on the patio, which was just lovely. The picture doesn't do it justice!

Good food - the fettuccini seafood was a lot for one - could be shared easily. The mediterranean beet salad was outstanding. Service good.

I returned again, with a friend , and we found the same high quality of food. She had the Seafood Fettuccine, and loved the taste of the morsels of seafood , in a light creamy sauce. I chose the roast Pork tenderloin ......which came with...the creamiest garlic flavoured mashed potatoes I have ever eaten. It was accompanied by several kinds of fresh , perfectly cooked vegetables. The taste was as good as the appearance. Although the dessert choices looked inviting, we decided to pass, and savour the taste of our meals. We will return soon, and the creamy potatoes will be one of my coices..Service throughout , by Jessica, was prompt and pleasant.More

My guest and I had not been here for a while. We had meals that tasted even better than its appearance and they came with charming , attentive service. She had the Mediterranean Beet Salad , with the marinated chicken breast, and I had the...special Pesto Salmon. The colourful vegetables on both our plates , were worth a photo , in any "food magazine". The only problem we had , was deciding which of the tempting desserts we would order to top off the meal. We chose the rasberry cheesecake...and it was "to die for". More than 20 years in business, and still delivering top quality meals , in a very relaxed dining room. WE will be back soon !More

The Buell St. Bistro is amazing and a must try. The food is always amazing & the service is top notch. 3 of us went on Nov. 12, 2022 and Emily was our fantastic server. If you can make a reservation & ask for her...to wait on your table, do it! You won't be disappointed. I would also like to thank Linda for accepting me reservation thru text. Linda made this super easy for me. I can't wait to go back and support this local business.More

We wanted this place to be great. There really is no guaranteed great dining places in Brockville. The ambiance in the outdoor patio is wonderful. But indoors of out the food is just okay at best. The steak was poor- tough and with a long...seam of gristle that should have been trimmed away. Inexcusable in a restaurant professing quality. Other dishes- over two visits- were unremarkable. Salmon tasty enough but no 'wow1' Thermadore ditto. Staff friendly and attentive. Atmosphere pretty good, the food is the letdown. Pity. Afraid we won't be backMore

The physical property is pleasant enough and clean. The menu is somewhat limited, however there are dearly presentations offered. That being said, for the quality of the meals presented the same are grossly overpriced. For example a simple bowl of mushroom soup that was anything...but extraordinary was eight dollars. A stirfry (that was supposedly presented spicy) was basically a portion of rice with a few pieces of chicken, three shrimp and if you stop your vegetables, and for this the price was just under $30. Six dollars for a glass of climatic juice (with three dollars and a slice of lemon and lime) and $3.25 for a cup of coffee is, again, will be owned worth. We had to ask our server for water, and at no time did any of the staff combined ask if we needed more water or even offer to refill the glasses. When would be better served driving east to Kingston and trying Chez Piggy, for driving a little further in another direction and going to Brigadoon.More

Delicious food, arrived quickly and tasted great. Service was attentive without being oppressive. The brie-based starter was particularly good. While we think you can find less expensive food in Brockville, it won't be this good.
