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

Very nice ambiance, friendly, efficient. We had the stuffed chicken and the canadian pork - both dishes were really tasty and different. Would recommend either.

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.

We had not eaten here in a while...the quality and quantities have not changed. The soup special Asparagus and Leek , ...was very tasty For entrees we chose the Seafood Fettucine and the Indo Stir Fry that the" voice of Brockville' radio , Bruce Wylie..." highly recommends. Both entrees were full of flavour......"we cross tested". Bruce is correct. The stir fry had interesting textures and flavours. Service throughout was friendly and great. We will return soon.More

The indoor dining area of the restaurant is very cozy with multiple rooms. The service was very attentive and friendly. The menu is varied with a lot of fresh seafood and other choices. I had the Thai stir-fry with hot curry and it was very...good. It was also very generous with the chicken and shrimp. My wife had fresh tuna and she really liked it. The wine selection is limited but it is solid. Overall, this was a very nice evening out and very good for couples, friends or families.More

From the time we arrived at the door until we walked out, we were treated incredibly well Our server Emily) was attentive and friendly. Everyone who contributed to this meal provided outstanding service. We don’t dine out often as we ourselves enjoy cooking, but this...was definitely worth taking the chance. We all had steaks and the Thermidor and none of us could stop commenting on our meals! Thank you to all the staff as well as the amazing Chef who contributed to this amazing evening! We will definitely recommend and return!More

I’ve been missing my long time love, the Buell St Bistro and their amazing patio lunches since the pandemic started. But enough was enough. I craved Chef Marc and lovely Linda’s impeccable French food and gave their number a call. Within seconds Linda and I...fell into our familiar chit chat and I felt right at home again. Inspired by local radio personality Bruce Wylie’s oft repeated rave reviews, I ordered the Indonesian Curry Plate Stir Fry. Linda suggested a salad and boom the mood was set and I obsessively watched the clock tick until our predetermined time for pickup was nigh. Arriving at the door I saw other eager dinners lined up for both reservations inside and more takeout. Everyone was excited and unusual for these times, in convivial spirits, while the flow of activity in and out began. I saw several friends leave with food, line up behind me. And I made some new friends along the way. Eavesdropping I heard sone out-of-towners comment on their highly recommended dining choice and honestly it was the best few minutes standing in a line I’ve ever experienced. When I got home I was, of course, thrilled by the smell, appearance and ultimately the tastes of my meal. I cannot recommend the Buell St Bistro any higher. Go. Enjoy. Repeat.More

I understand that they may have been busy but the service was a bit slow. When we asked for a second bottle of wine to be put on ice we were told "I'll do it if I have time" which was a bit off-putting. We...were seated at a large table in the middle of the room (we were 4) because our table wasn't ready yet. When it was we were asked to move and the hostess or manager (I guess) wasn't pleased but acquiesed when we reminded her that it was our originally booked table. So not the worst service I've ever had and the food was decent so you might want to give it a try although it would not be my first choice. The patio seems nice.More

We loved the food (seared Tuna and a curry dish). The atmosphere on the outdoor patio is lovely. I will go again. Just suggest you enhance your single wine serving choices. All three choices were no match for the superb food. I realize your focus...may be on selling bottles of wine and in that choice selection you excel.More
