Simple Bistro is small, about 30 seats and has a relatively limited menu, but certainly worth a visit. The Prix Fixe pricing is quite reasonable. Our party all had appetizers (avocado, smoked salmon and daily soup) all of which were quite nice. If we had...More

Simple Bistro holds much promise - the room truly feels like a Parisian bistro with some great artwork (though the cheap chairs to detract somewhat), the menu teases with many great sounding traditional French dishes and there are two prices - $11 for all appetizers...More

Had a very good meal at Simple Bistro. The lentil soup was excellent and the beef bourguignon were both excellent. Service was great. Will definitely return again.

A lot of places call themselves 'bistro' but few deliver the authentic product: intimate, proprietor-run, restricted menu with everything cooked from scratch, nothing "deconstructured", familiar dishes, and so on.

this would be my second time dining at Simple Bistro. The first time was back in February with my wife, when the food was rich in flavour and beautifully presented. I thought I'd take my wife out for a dinner and a movie date but...More

Like the previous reviewer, I had been to Simple Bistro before and enjoyed the imaginative menu, but I hadn't been in a while. I suggested to a friend we meet there for supper the other night and boy, was I embarrassed. My first surprise was...More

Continental style food, but done delicately, creatively, and with great sauces. They also use fresh and local. Portions are reasonable, and the room has enough atmosphere for most occasions.

We went today again for brunch, a special occasion with old friends, and were somewhat embarrassed that we'd recommended this place. There has been an obvious change in the kitchen since March - for $17 I expect extraordinary eggs benedict, which is what we had...More
