I was excited to see this bistro open again and hoped it was as good as with the previous owners. Unfortunately I was sorely disappointed! I ordered a very yummy sounding salad but it came with a very unusual dressing that seemed anything but complimentary....More

It is really a shame to see the Bistro close, but chef Fatima is still running Vinoteca at Zanata Vineyards in Glenora. You will find her excellent food Wednesday through Sunday

Tucked away on Kenneth Street is Bistro 161. The little garden patio is very cute and the food is always delicious. I have heard new owners have recently purchased it - can't wait to go there again.
