I am not one who usually goes out for a fine dining experience but when the time was right, Koosh Bistro was the appropriate choice in my opinion for two occasions within the last few months. From the moment you enter the calm atmosphere and dim lighting build a sense of cozy, almost familiar location. The servers were generous, inquisitive... More

This restaurant serves amazing well-balanced, beautifully presented food. The risotto looked very small, however it was wonderful and plentiful. This is not a restaurant for the budget conscious.

This Westdale bistro is casual and quaint but the food is gourmet Italian with a twist. My husband and I had two risotto dishes at lunch and they were superb. I had a pasta special last week and it was delicious. Not the average Italian fare. Lots of choice. Prices for pasta very reasonable for lunch size - plenty big... More

Started our dinner with the squash soup - so creamy and delicious. Main course was the lobster stuffed ravioli..so yummy! Lots of fresh bread to dip in oil/balsamic vinegar. We were too full to end with the Creme Brule, so that means we have to go back for that!

Friendly staff, intimate bistro. Tried Koosh pasta, full of mushrooms, excellent. Friends had caesar salads, good. Daily soup had lamb broth and nicely spiced. Would go again.

I have been here a number of times and been super satisfied every time. Lunch is a great option if you find the prices too high. Most lunch size pastas are $10-15 and it includes salad or soup. I'd recommend their soups to start! If you need gluten free they are a celiac friendly spot. Check it out!

There are so many great choices for dinner on Koosh's extensive and impressive menu! Finally our orders included Bailey's chicken and veal piccata and beef stroganoff risotto and a pasta dish. Everything was very good although not quite excellent. In my case, for $30, my well-presented Baileys's chicken did not have quite enough chicken!? I was not disappointed in quality... More

Once again Koosh Bistro provided a great experience! Took forever to decide what to eat as almost everything on the menu looks amazing. This evening I decided to try something that wasn't pasta for the first time and I was not disappointed at all!! Amazing! I had the Chicken Piccata and it was one of the best chicken dishes I...

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.
