We had our first visit to Grape and Olive Wine and Martini Bistro last night before attending a show at Casino Rama. The meal was absolutely great. My husband loves Rack of Lamb - and it was to die for! The Demi Glaze was fantastic, quantity generous, cooked perfectly and vegetables and presentation was wonderful I had their Festive Roast...

it didn't look like much from the outside, so I was nervous! Once in, quickly acknowledged by staff, seated right away, and drink orders taken. Ordered the sundried tomato perogies for my appetizer, mushroom stuffed pasta for dinner and a warm apple blossom with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce for desert....it was all awesome! Fast and friendly service,... More

We stopped here on our way to New Liskeard. The food was great, lively atmosphere and quick and pleasant service. I had a Salad with Salmon and it was very good. A little pricey, but good portions and the food was good. The desserts looked incredible, although I never had one, they were moving a lot of them!

I took my daughter to brunch today and everything was wonderful. Our server Jo, was attentive, we joked and laughed with Heather, got to speak with Pastry chef Peter and their breakfast chef, Dorothy. The bacon was nice and crispy, the prime rib was so good, I didn't even put ketchup on it. The very best part was the caramelized... More
