Innovative and delicious. Expert staff. Cosy Bistro. The atmosphere of Westdale village. What more could you ask for? Combine with a trip to the Westdale theatre for an movie you won't see anywhere else.

I recently went to Koosh with a group of people for a friend's birthday celebration. Modern, clean, and excellent service. A little on the small side, be sure to make reservations. The menu is very Mediterranean, heavy on the pasta, seafood and rich sauce. Delicious. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a more up scale dining experience in... More

Went with my wife & friends on a Tuesday evening. I was immediately impressed with the decor & atmosphere. Small, quiet & plush. We had reservations & were seated quickly. Our waitress, Vivian, wasted no time in approaching, introducing herself and very professionally stating the specials for the evening & taking drink orders. I ordered the soup of the day,... More

Went to Koosh tonight with a friend. Had a great meal in a relaxed setting. Service was excellent...attentive and friendly. Food was all from scratch not precooked or frozen. Vivian was impressive with her detailed knowledge of the specials and able to answer any questions. We both had a Caesar salad with just enough garlic and cheese. I had the... More

Fantastic! I dined at Koosh Bistro with a friend last week. It was my first time there and definitely not my last. Our waiter Chris, was very attentive and recommended a great red wine that paired perfectly with the bolognese pasta. The pasta was perfectly cooked, and upon request the chef added 2 firecracker peppers to add some kick to... More

My husband and I are true foodies living in the Hamilton area and couldn't believe we hadn't been to Koosh before! Our experience was perfection. Attentive, friendly, and thoroughly knowledgeable service; intimate, cozy, upscale atmosphere; and a wide variety of choices on the authentic Italian inspired menu. Everything from risotto, pasta that's made fresh daily, and pizzas, to a selection... More

I don't know how many times I drove through Westdale before noticing this fantastic and charming bistro. What a pleasurable discovery for a great lunch; can't wait to hold back for dinner. The menu is quite extensive and the wine list has varieties for even palate. Our server was incredible and knowledgeable about both the menu and wine selections. She... More

This restaurant in Westdale is worth a visit for sure. We had great service. I loved that the pasta is made fresh daily. That being said, as it is with many pasta dishes, the salt content was too high. When I go again I will mention to go easy on the salt as it was just enough to almost send... More
