Italian and Mediterranean eats get new lease at this Mississauga charmer. Chefs Raj and Sam - both born and raised in Sri Lanka, and trained in Paris and Switzerland - bring a decidedly international flavour to Clarkson's menu with culinary influences from Italy, France and Greece. Their native curry is never far from hand in the kitchen. Whether it's pastas, seafood, chicken, veal or lamb, the mains here are consistent winners. Special mentions go to the Chilean sea bass, French-cut veal chop, lobster spaghetti and stuffed chicken supreme. Portions are generous and presentation is dependably appealing. A thoughtful beer and wine selection rounds out the experience. Kids eat free from Sunday to Thursday. more...

Food was exceptional. My son's seafood linguine was packed with seafood - no skimping at all. Complimentary bruschetta bread was warm, crunchy and delicious, all the food right down to the dessert was delicious and beautifully prepared. Our server Andrew was personable and attentive without being overbearing. Fave restaurant in Clarkson!

Great food and service. We had an early seating so not too much atmosphere but that was okay because we all wanted to talk and enjoy our company.

Three sisters getting together for lunch at a restaurant new to all of them can be a recipe for disaster. We are quite picky. But our lunches were delicious - especially the New York steak sandwiches. We tried 2 soups, mushroom and red pepper, and enjoyed both. We agreed that our coffees (espresso, capuccino and regular) were excellent. We will go back.

We were all very happy with the Bistro! We had 13 people, a lot of retirees who haven't seen each other in a while. I believe everyone ate everything on their plates. I personally appreciated the bruschetta and warm bread before the meal. The waiter was so very patient and friendly to the ladies. And made sure we didn't forget anything at the end of the night. The surprise of having live music was wonderful as well!

We were seated and after 20 minutes of none of the five waiters coming over to our table (topped up water and served food to the tables all around us), we gave up and left. Told one of the waiters on the way out why were leaving. He just said "oh sorry" and went back to playing with his computer. Clearly no one was managing front of the house. We won't be back.

The server did his best but at times it felt as though you did not have sufficient staff to meet the demand. One server (not our primary) lacked any personality; he simply dumped our dishes on the table. The food, however, was excellent and the overall experience was positive. Thanks for the opportunity to comment in the interest of sustaining your business.

I am so glad we decided to get out of the house and try this bistro for dinner. The food is the star here. Excellent range of choices, great presentation, wonderful flavours, satisfying portions. It was very quiet shortly after opening on a Sunday and the service was very attentive and personable. I haven't been so happy in a restaurant in ages.
