We dined the other night at 1010 Bistro in the Westdale Village and once again the meal, service and atmosphere made for an excellent evening. Both of our pasta dish specialties (shrimp, chicken linguine and lobster, scallops and shrimp trattoria) were flavourful and well presented. The restaurant was not busy and as expected, service was exceptionally attentive. Both appetizers; the... More

This Westdale institution has been turning out consistently fine food for years now. Among my favourite main courses are the rack of lamb, the bison steak and the short ribs, although the fresh fish of the day is often tempting as well The pastas are varied, interesting, and perfectly prepared. The grilled calamari appetizer is tender and tasty and the... More

We had a lovely meal to celebrate our anniversary, it is a few years since we visited this restaurant and we weren't disappointed the service was good and a good amount of time between courses made it very pleasant.The place could use some new art work or at least have the old art work re framed.

1010 Bistro is always reliable for excellent food and a delightful ambiance. We ate at the window and enjoyed our lunch. The fish special was Orange Roughy with risotto which we ordered in addition to the short ribs. The meals were full of flavour and well portioned. The only downfall was that we were the only patrons in the restaurant.... More

Had a business meeting here for dinner and used the downsatairs private dining room. Service was unobtrusive. Food was very nice. Arctic Char special was delicious. Appetizers of Calamari and tomato and cheese salad were perfect

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night and were very surprised to see that it was almost empty. ( Only two other couples besides our group.) A drink that was ordered straight from their menu could not be made as there was a lack of ingredients. Most of the dishes were tasty, however, 2 orders of Tagliatelle Bolognese were... More

I had to rate with a 5 star because the food at Bistro 1010 is never disappointing. They use the best meats and fish, fresh ingredients and make everything when ordered. It is one restaurant where the chef is always exceptional. Service is great and decor is not bad but could use a make over to liven it up and... More

We enjoyed our visit to the 1010 Bistro very much. We live in the area but hadn't tried it until now. What a delightful surprise. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. The food was exceptional. We were a party of ten persons and each was able to order his/her preference. I had salmon. The lady beside me had bass and... More
