We had a wondeful meal that was highlighted by fabulous service from Tyler. It was refreshing to have not just attentive service when needed, but he took the time to acquant himself personally with us, calling us by our first names all evening in an...incredibly friendly, yet professionl manner. We will certainly request him when we return. We started with a new menu item as an app (even though it is a main course item) split between four of us, that is a classy presentation prepared tableside. Penne, covered in a delicious mushroom sauce, drizzled with Louis 13th brandy (wow!) and stirred inside a huge solid parmessan cheese wheel. Followed that with an interesting twist on a Caesar Salad. And 4 great main courses. All in all a tasty meal, thoroughly enjoyable service, making for a great night. I strongly recommend giving this restaurant a try if you haven't already done so.More

Randomly ended up at this beautiful restaurant. Outside was very welcoming with the small park and “memorabilia “ area of an old truck, horse wagons and other cool knick nacks that make for a great background of a photo. There is also a playground for...kids and many outside eating areas. The eating areas outside looked to be very private from one another and also covered. There was also a bar outside. Once we entered into the restaurant we were welcomed and walked to our seats. We were informed the menu was specific to what the chief was able to use from the ingredients picked from there own garden outback. The menu we were told changes weekly. My wife and I both ordered a pasta dish, and wow was the food amazing! The penna alla vodka was amazing and the pork belly fried up in it was really good. My wife wanted a chicken parmigiana meal and although not on the menu the waiter had no issue requesting this from the chief who also has no issue making this meal for my wife! Both meals arrived HOT which to me is very important and plentiful as we both struggled to finish the complete meal. One add I would recommend though would be some sort of bread with the pasta so the delicious sauce could be soaked up but this is only a wish. We will no doubt be coming back to this fantastic restaurant as the vibe, service and food were all 5 star.More

Recently had a dinner experience earlier this week that was one for the ages!! Tyler was our server….need I say more?? It was funny, another associate of mine at the table mentioned they had read several reviews about “Tyler” so we were all curious to...see how accurate they were. I can say with extreme confidence those reviews do not do him justice. Tyler is beyond anything that I (possibly the entire table) have ever encountered in hospitality. Not only did he introduce himself but asked us our names and remembered them all with in minutes. Even throughout the entire evening and as we were leaving he took the time and recognized us by name. That simply does not happen. He never wrote down a thing, described our food when presenting it. Even his wine service was perfection. He took the time to decant our wine over light in order to separate sediment; more places need to understand that concept. The food was delicious and flavorful. The land and sea was superb and the Penne ala vodka was divine!!!! Great job all around but Tyler truly made this experience for our table. Can’t wait to bring more business your way!!!More

This is our second visit to Risposta Bistro in 3 weeks. Both times we had Alex as our server. Alex is amazing! What a wonderful, attentive, warm gentleman!!! Our meals were delicious! The charcuterie platter was simply amazing!!! The best ever! Everyone in our party...enjoyed their meals, although I found my salmon to be too salty for my taste. The most enjoyed items on our plates were the wide variety of vegetables, which usually is the least interesting item at most restaurants. Not at Risposta! Perhaps a dish of just vegetables should be a consideration! Risposta is definitely our new go to restaurant, especially if we can be served by Alex!!!More

Wow!! What an experience. Had the pleasure of dining here this past Friday evening (September 17th) and was completely blown away from start to finish. It was a birthday celebration so pretty important occasion and we gambled on a new restaurant to try. Well let’s...just say my wife and I can not wait to return. Bruschetta was different and soooo flavorful! The cured prosciutto on the Caesar salad was amazing! We shared the penne ala vodka and sea bass; flavors and presentation spot on! Tyler informed us about how everything is made on site and farmed to table as much as possible. Let’s get into what made the night extra memorable, simply put into one word: Tyler!!!! His guest service skills are beyond comprehension. I’ve worked in high high end hospitality for almost 25 years (Four Seasons, O&B), I haven’t seen his level of personalized professionalism ever before. I’ve been surrounded by professional servers my entire career but he somehow finds a way to make each table feel just as special as the next. And it was a very busy night, he was in the zone and we watched closely. He used all tables by name, not just us, never wrote a thing down, was moving quick but maintained his level of professionalism never cutting corners. I’m not sure if he’s part owner or not, and this is no knock to your restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised to receive that level of service in a small town establishment. He honestly treated us like VIP but realized quickly that he treats everyone like that. Please feel lucky and thankful to have him represent you because there’s no question that his skill set and value would make him famous in the city! Well Done!!!More

I've been in the restaurant business for a little over 20 years and I can say without hyperbole that this is the best restaurant I've ever been to, by a long shot. There are a lot of reasons as to why I consider it such...and I'll give a few of those reasons right now for you, the reader. 1)Do you like going to a place where everyone knows your name? Well, they make a point here to getting to know each and every guest, to the point where they may well remember your name a year later without having seen you, because they care about your comfort and experience! 2)Do you like delicious food with a reasonable price? Well, Risposta has a wide variety of both reasonably priced (with taste that goes beyond reasonable prices) as well as PREMIUM meals and drinks. So if you're just looking for a night out with the family, or looking to break the bank, you can do it all here and I guarantee the quality and satisfaction will dwarf the size of any bill, large or small. 3)The setting is seriously gorgeous. I've seen the progression from just the building to the green house to the patio to the gazebo. The environment is just as beautiful as the food. 4)Sustainability. You've heard of restaurants that like to keep things local? Well... It doesn't get much more local than this. Literally everything they have is either grown/raised themselves, or directly from the immediately neighboring farms. EVERYTHING! GO EAT HERE NOW!More

One of the best dining experiences I have had in years! I was reluctant to post this because I am sure that once everyone else experiences Riposta Bistro it will be impossible to get a table!! The ambience was incredible, the food was amazing but...it was Patrick and the rest of his staff that sealed the deal. The service was impeccable Riposta is well worth the drive from downtown Toronto.More

Hello Risposta team!!!! I intended to post this weeks ago so please excuse my tardiness. I was part of a bday celebration a few weeks ago and just wanted to say how impressed I was with everything. The drinks were great, Tyler did a special...cocktail with a flamed orange peel which was visually appeasing. He actually took the time to repeat the process for the kids which was a nice touch that occupied them for an additional couple minutes haha. The pasta was so delicious and the pizza here speaks for itself in my opinion. Back to Tyler though hahaha. He is seriously the BEST server I have ever had in my life, and I’ve been privileged to have dined all over the world. He has a way of making the experience sooooo personal to the guest in a way that’s so comfortable but not intrusive. Almost making you wanting more lol. Not to mention his memory is outrageously impressive. Perhaps he should be working for NASA? We unfortunately bombarded him with a dinner order he wasn’t even ready to take. It looked as if he just clicked a switch, locked in and took and memorized the entire order. To the fact I lost $10 betting my wife theres no way he’s getting all this information correct. I kid you not, not one mistake was made. Just wow!!! Thank you Tyler and Risposta for a great memory and experience. Can’t wait to visit again!More
