The food and the service were both amazing. We were in Prince Edward County for the first time and a friend recommended this restaurant. So glad she did. The menu is not extensive but yet it was difficult to decide what to order - it...all sounded delicious. Very generous servings. We enjoyed salad apps - baby gem Caesar salad and heirloom tomato/goat cheese salad. For the mains, my husband ordered the steak dinner and I had the creole jambalaya. We can’t say enough about how delectable the food was. The downside is it can be difficult to get a reservation (book as early in advance as you can) and reservations can only be made by phone. I left a message and waited for a call back to confirm availability, BUT it was well worth it. Make the reservation and enjoy.More

Thank you for your kind words, we are glad you had a good evening. We are really challenged with a lack of staff as is everyone in service. Thank you for joining us!

It was a very disappointing meal. The staff was not very friendly. I asked to have my French fries substituted and was told no substitutions. I was allowed to pay for an extra side. I was fine with that. But they insisted that I still...had to take the French fries. Our meals were cold when served. The waitress never came by when the food was served so we could order more wine. It was just very upsetting. My daughter was joking that the place should be called ‘East and Mean’. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.More

Beginning to end was great!! The hostess was funny and friendly, our server was top notch ...on a very busy Saturday night out she remained friendly, very accommodating on requests and extremely fast on getting drinks, dinner and all the extras. She got up on...a chair to get the perfect picture for our memories with no hesitation. off the menu... blackened salmon, steak, burger n frites, ravioli, chicken everyone loved their meals, all came as ordered and served fresh and even more than expected. The steak medium rare was cooked to perfection and the salmon was amazing!! Will definitely be back and highly recommend!!More

I get that times are challenging. Having said that, it is unlikely I will go back to this restaurant. First, they pay little attention to their phone answering system. In the past they have lost our reservation and this year despite two messages they still...messed up our reservation that left us waiting an additional ten minutes resetting a table for one extra person. Why have a messaging system if you don’t use it? Secondly, they need to find a better way to screen COVID vaccination requirements. Having patrons stand outside waiting while someone notices them is rude, not to mention inconsiderate of patrons with mobility challenges. Finally my dinner was just ok, not worth the price paid. The service was also just ok. At the end of our meal our waitress told us to take our time, but then started grabbing plates that we had stacked for her, telling us there were people waiting for our table. Again, very rude, unacceptable service, and not worth returning.More

After a wonderful day touring the vineyards, we were hungry - but Wellington was hopping and finding a restaurant wasn't easy. The Bistro gave us a reservation with an estimated wait of an hour. We went back to our B&B and we read on the...porch till we were texted that the Bistro was ready for us. What a wonderful meal! I had a creative take on Jambalaya and my partner has these amazing fusion tacos with crispy tofu and feta cheese. Highly recommended!More

I was very excited to go to East and Main as I had heard many recommendations about their food. To give them credit, the food was delicious and so fresh. With that said, our server was awful and so rude. It was quite upsetting. It...was my partner and I's anniversary and after 15 minutes of waiting for a drink, when our server finally came by, I asked her for a glass of wine and scoffed and said " i don't know if we have that" ... she said that to a few other wines. When I asked her what she did have, she left the table annoyed and came back 10 minutes late and said this is all we have and left the bottle of wine on the table. She was very unpleasant the rest of the dinner service, and then didn't even finish serving us or asked us for dessert. The whole experience was very upsetting and left what was suppose to be a special dinner.. a very awkward and uncomfortable experience.More

It was so nice dining-in once again on Saturday evening with good friends, excellent food, and our favourite waitress was back. The new dividers between the tables are just gorgeous! Well done, Kimberly!
