Very good food. Great service and quiet atmosphere. One of the best restaurants around. One of those restaurants you like to keep for special occasions.

The service was very friendly, and the space was lovely. I just can't see myself eating there again based primarily on one dish that was too extreme in flavours in two ways: The jambalaya was the saltiest and tangiest, most tomato-flavoured, I've every tasted in...my life, among any that I've had in other good restaurants or homemade. I know that tomatoes are a part of jambalya, but I had to push the food up the side of the bowl to "drain" it from the tomato sauce, and there were literally about 2 tablespoons of sauce at the bottom of the bowl by the end. Because of the saltiness and the tanginess of the tomato flavour, I forced myself to eat it, not wanting food to go to waste; I would have taken a photo, but didn't want to seem obvious about it. Additionally, the cornbread served with it was much sweeter than what I'm used to--not enough saltiness, no hint of cheese or jalapeno. Just mainly sweet, and not my style. I think my companions enjoyed their meals; there weren't any comments either way--praise nor criticism. On the bright side, the scallop appetizer was very tasty. Overall, a solid effort and I don't want to put them down, but it just wasn't the right experience for me.More

We had dinner here on a Wednesday. We chose the rooftop patio, but it was very sunny, with minimal coverage for any type of shade (sort of a pagoda style overhead thing...) We went to as much shade as possible (still warm), but thank goodness...for the wind. There was Happy Hour (buy 2 appys, get 1 for half price), so the 4 of us took advantage! We ordered Beet/Goat cheese salads, Buffalo chicken bites, blackened scallops, Mediterranean dip, mussels and Thai pork skewers. All was very good and perfectly cooked, including the mussels and scallops!! We tried a number of different cocktails as well, following recommendations of our excellent waiter Xander!! He was awesome! When we described our taste preferences, he suggested the perfect drink and food to match what we asked --- a considerable skill in this business :) We will be back - and hopefully on a day when Xander is there for his expert guidance!!More

I visited Resto Urban Dining twice in the past few weeks with various friends. The atmosphere was relaxing. The staff (Xander and Marlene) were wonderful. I felt totally safe in their location since COVID started I was wondering if I wanted to go out tables...are nicely distanced so that you don't even think about anything else except having a great meal with wonderful food. Thank you so much Marlene and Xander.More

We’ve visited Resto a few times in the past year and a half and I can honestly say that every single meal that I’ve ordered, and our friends have ordered (yup, I taste test theirs) is amazing. Not only is the food delicious, but the...staff are friendly, engaging, and happy. Our 14 year-old even commented saying, “I almost get the feeling that this staff are good friends outside of work”!! I highly recommend the calamari as a starter. The maple Cajun fettuccine is beautiful! And in the past, I’ve had the mushroom pizza, which I LOVE!! If you haven’t tried it, visit Resto! Our server this evening was Kate (the girl with the freckles) and she was just a delight. We’ve also had a guy in the past serving us who never fails to make me laugh with his fantastic sense of humour. Hands down, Resto is our favourite place to have a lovely dining experience in Bedford! We’ve been with friends for a nice night out, we’ve been with a large group, and we’ve been with just our son. Every time was excellent!!! Keep up the great work!!!More
