A quiet calm atmosphere with an interesting selection of food using local organic ingredients. The waitstaff are friendly and attentive. We have been here several times and the food is delicious and on the marginally high side of reasonable. Gluten free options are available.

I've eaten at the Bantam Grill six or seven times in the last few months. I've gone Solo and I've sat at the bar and had a wonderful meal. The bartender is really quite lovely and always remembers your customers when she hasn't even seen them for a while. Great wine list I really like the William Hill Cabernet. The... More

We had the bantam chicken and the short ribs, and tiramisu for dessert. We ate and drank at the bar, arriving at 5PM on Friday, with no problem getting seats. It was a wonderful experience - better than we could have hoped for. The food was plentiful and very tasty, and the wait staff enjoyable to talk with.

We had four fabulous dinners on New Year's Eve. Service was exceptional And the food delicious and presented professionally. Little to many cucumbers in my salmon dish but the salmon was cooked to perfection😍

Heard about the establishment, and despite the strip mall location, a modern, dark interior gives a lot of atmosphere. One criticism up front is the five set of tables for two near the kitchen. Way too cramped. Servers are on top of the customers at adjacent tables when placing orders. .... Reserve wines by the glass come with a high... More

We went to the Bantam Grill Sunday night before heading off to the Santa Land Diaries, and we had a very nice experience. I had the duck fat broiled brussel sprouts and the butternut squash ravioli while my wife decided on the flounder app and a bowl of onion soup. Both meals enjoyable and cooked perfectly, The service we very... More

The food was delicious! My husband and I were both happy with our dishes.The menu is interesting, but pricey. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall. They have decorated it well, but the building is kind of run down. You could feel the floors shaking every time someone walked by. Our meal for 2 was about $80.00, this... More

I have eaten at Bantam several times and have never been disappointed. The food and the service is consistently good and the atmosphere is very pleasing. There are very few places that are comfortable for my 92 year old father. Bantam is great for him because even when its busy its not too loud.

We live in the area, and ate here during the week. The service was very friendly and just fine. Our waitress was the only reason we would even consider coming back. The food was amazingly without flavor, meat over-cooked, seafood bland, and while the sauce was ok, it seemed like the entire approach was "throw some greens over it and... More

My chicken was good as was my wife's burger. It seemed to be a comfort food kind of place in a small shopping mall on the outskirts of Peterborough The wine was good, and they served a generous glass. Our tiramisu was very good.
