Meet the owner

Bistro Grande is approved by the Kashruth Council of Canada, which oversees kosher food,” explains Arthur Batikan, manager of the Eglinton West vegetarian restaurant. “Every single one of our lettuces is checked so that it’s as clean as can be and the fish is prepared to strict and healthy standards.”

While Bistro Grande caters to an enthusiastic local Jewish community for whom kosher dining is a way of life, it also attracts diners who simply want to eat healthy, vegetarian food. “We open our arms to everyone,” says Arthur. If the idea of kosher or vegetarian food brings a left-of-centre menu to mind, think again. Arthur describes the menu as Mediterranean, and pastas, fish dishes, salads, soups and pizzas made in a wood-burning stove are among the typical fare at this welcoming spot.

Excellent service. Food was very good; however, some of our salads didn't look as fresh as they should have been. We appreciated the flower for our mom as it was Mother's Day.

Three of us had lunch at the restaurant. One of us is dependent on an electric scooter for mobility. He was graciously accommodated. The service was friendly and good, but there was only one wait staff for the whole restaurant, which slowed things down a bit. The bathroom needs some refreshing. The French onion soup was outstanding.

The waitress seemed like she didn't want to be there. She was very abrupt, and when we asked for more bread, or water, she didn't even look at us most of the time. She seemed angry, and just wanted to get it over with. Due to limited restaurants that are kosher, we really don't have much choice.

We have just had a pretty terrible experience at Bistro Grande. I'll start by first saying the food was great, although pricey, we didn't mind though because it was quite excellent! On the complete other side was the service. Absolutely unprofessional rude staff this evening. Our main server did not even try to fake a smile the entire time. She was extremely frustrated with us from the very beginning. We were a family of four adults, came about 30mins to closing, fully understanding we should order quickly because kitchens needs time to close and clean. At first we were rushed to make our decision, within two minutes of walking in. Then food was just plopped down in front of us with no grace or just common food service professionalism. When trying to lighten the mood with the server, she was having none of it. It made us feel super uncomfortable and rushed. We left a small tip, since we truly believe that when the service is terrible, a big tip is not appropriate. As we got up towards the door the server stops us and says "Sir, you MUST have made a mistake leaving this tip amount". I mean, the gal this woman had to question the tip amount, even though it was small. That was plain rude, and completely and utterly unprofessional. We will not be going back to this restaurant even though the food was excellent and it's in a convenient location. Our experience was totally ruined, unfortunately.

We were looking for a kosher restaurant that was easy to get to from our downtown home and came across Bistro Grande. While there were some negative hints in on-line reviews, on the whole it seemed an interesting place and we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. We really enjoyed the service at Bistro Grande---attentive but not overbearing. We asked for advice on selections and were more than satisfied with the recommendations. The prices were quite reasonable; while it did top $100, about 1/3 of that was due to our wine selection. It was more family orientated than we had expected, but still closer to elegant than casual dining. We will likely return again

The wait staff were attentive and very pleasant . The food came in good time, salads first as requested , then an adequate amount time the mains came. The pizzas that were ordered seemed a little different than what we had a few months earlier, so there was a little disappointment. The risotto balls were also not as good as they could have been, they resembled falafel not the Italian arancini. The fish and chips were very good, light not greasy , and very generous portion . The ceaser salal was very good, the Mediterranean salad had an odd dressing , but edible. All in all , the evening was very nice and we will go back .

We had booked a reservation for a birthday gathering. This is our favourite kosher restaurant in the city. Food is excellent, varied, well served and delicious. Service is always friendly and polite. Servers remember us between visits and ask after other family members as does the manager. This is a great restaurant to bring non-Jewish friends as the food is so good.

Fettuccini Alfredo wasn't very good at all, pizza was average, French onion soup and cheesecake were both superb. Service was ok; waitress seemed rushed and didn't seem like age was in a great mood. Atmosphere was excellent, however, and so I will return in the future.
