Fine Dining Gem

Wonderful evening at Brownes Bistro, because of the refined elegant atmosphere, the wide selection of Italian and Continental cuisine and professional service. We really loved our evening out and Brownes Bistro was a big part of that. Thank you.

Absolutely amazing little restaurant tucked away...

Absolutely amazing little restaurant tucked away in the heart of the city. It was an adventure for the senses. Site - Very calming, romantic, decor with lots of wine accents. Sounds - Eclectic background music and pleasent sounds of people enjoying their meals. Touch - Warm decor with bench seating on the walls and very comfortable seating for the other person. Smells - The incredible aromas of other patrons dishes to keep you second guessing your original order!!! As I was walking out of the restaurant; the smell of everyone elses dishes made me want to come back after a jog around the block to burn off my dinner. Taste - Ahhh.... Best for last.... Incredible combination of spices and original tastes of food.... They do not use over powering sauces to smother the tastes of the meat or vegetables. Just an amazingly clean taste to the pallet. Overall, a very well managed restaurant!

Our server, a young man from Berlin, was absolutely delightful and made our dinner very special. He was attentive, efficient and full of personality. He was a great asset to the restaurant. Our dinners were very tasty and well presented. The atmosphere was peaceful so it made it easy to chat.

My friends and I had a lovely time at your restaurant. The food was delicious and service was fantastic. I think Paula was our server? Lovely lady with red hair. She was very helpful with food and wine. It's a very cosy restaurant. I hadn't been there for a while and will definitely return sooner rather than later. I would love to share a dinner with my husband at your establishment.

It was my first time at Brownes Bistro, and I liked the ambiance, the quality of bread (outstanding!), the service was attentive, and the meal was very good. I chose from the Winterlicious menu, which was very good. The portions were small but adequate, but the Flank steak was hard to chew. I had hoped that, since it was marinated, it would have been more tender, so that was a bit disappointing. I will definitely return and try other things on the menu.

winterlicious burger was overdone. Caesar salad contained the root end of the romaine. Sauce on the Rigatoni was tasty but thin and scarce.

Excellent meal at Browne's Bistro. The various appetizers - beet and goat cheese salad, daily soup, calamari were all delicious. We enjoyed two different mains - steak/frites and vegetarian pasta were great. Love the casual atmosphere here.
