We visited here 2 times in March. Once for snacks after a production at Theatre Orangeville and the other time we had dinner before a show. Each time it was with a group of 8 people and all were pleased with their food choices. The...onion rings were the hit each time. The menu had lots of choices and all items were nicely prepared and presented. We would certainly go back.More

This wonderful restaurant is a hidden gem in town. During COVID, to help support local, we often ordered takeout from the BVR. Service was amazing, portion sizes were great and the food was delicious. When the patios opened we took friends there for the first...time and they were very impressed. The patio set up is comfortable and inviting, the staff is friendly and welcoming and to top it off the service and food top notch. We had the most pleasant evening visiting with friends and enjoying a great patio experience. Looking forward to many more BVR patio nights!More

The second day that patios were open we decided to try our luck and see if we could get in, we were so happy we could just walk in and have a seat! The food was amazing plus our server Sofia was so amazing and...helped us so much! So happy to come back to places like this! If your in the area do check out this place!!More

This is one good looking restaurant inside and out. Understated on the outside and well maintained heritage building on the inside. Very cozy. Staff were great and food was excellent.

Met another couple for lunch at this converted RR station and were able to get a patio table in the sun. Food was fine, service was good but we were all bothered by many bees/hornets/etc. I was stung on the hand and 48 hours later,...my hand is still swollen. There are traps for these insects and if this is a common condition, it should be dealt with.More

Our seating preference was honoured perfectly - couldn't have been better. The staff were very nice - Denise seated us perfectly, our waitress Lauren was excellent - just the right amount of attention - we didn't feel neglected or overserved - very nice ! Everyone's...food was great (Chicken Waffle, Veggie Burger and Cobb Salad), - my Greek salad was especially notable. It was nice to have owner Angela stop by :) Looking forward to our next visit !More

Always nice to find a good restaurant close to the theatre (especially in view of the temperature outside which was not conducive to a long walk). We were a little early but seated immediately. The wait staff were very patient, coming back several times while...we decided on what to order. Service was quick and very pleasant and the food was excellent with good sized portions. Would return the next time we are in Orangeville. Free parking right beside the restaurant and a short to Theatre Orangeville to see Early Morning Rain.More

This was the first time here. While my daughters Beyond Beef Burger was very good, I felt my quinoa bowl so-so. It was cold and had a lot of pickled onions etc. Had a strong vinegar like taste/smell. I would go back. Service was very...good.More

Went there for a small Xmas dinner. Staff friendly and professional, Food & service great. The Braised Short Ribs melted in my mouth. From the discussion around the table everyone had a great time and enjoyed the food.

I would call them to see if they can accommodate you. I would also consider The Orange Bistro, they have a separate room for special events and amazing food.
