This was our fourth visit and what a disappointment compared to previous experiences (earlier visits were more than 2 years ago). The ambience is still pleasant and friendly; however, the "Buzz Steak Frites - AAA 6 oz hand carved petite filet steak" ($28 before tax...More

Our family eats at The Buzz 2-3 times a year, usually for special occasions. The place is great. The service is reliably good. Friendly, polite, attentive. The food is always good. I especially like the lobster ravioli and the chicken curry. We haven't ever done...More

Just had dinner at "The Buzz". It was fantastic! Started dinner with a special martini. It was excellent! Then had a curry dish. Even though this is not an Indian restaurant, the curry was superb! Reasonably priced too!

Insipid, pricey, unambitious food with too many adjectives. $18 cheeseburger?!? Curry squash soup with a faint taste of squash and... where's the curry? Not awful, just underwhelming. But the atmosphere is really good for happy hour with the after-work crowd. Service was also just okay.

I loved this place! The service was attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was nice, featuring soft lighting and cool abstract art. The good was tasty. Lots of seafood options :) We will definitely be coming back.

Martini night Wednesday. $5 each. Food menu looked good. Apparently they have the best Vegetarian Nut Burger in Center town. We'll come back and try it. Ambience is good. Didn't have Raptors game blaring like everywhere else. Service was fast and friendly. I could see...More

I've passed this place on Bank pretty much daily for 6 years, always thinking it was a martini lounge/bar, not a super cozy restaurant with great food! So glad it showed up as a suggestion on Zomato, otherwise I'd never discover this lovely place! Great...More
