I live a block and a half from this theater. I avoided going there literally for years. I don't know why. Finally, my wife and I went and have now returned numerous times. Other than for special kids movies, it's all adult, with cushy, rocking reserved seats. The food and drink menu is extensive -- accommodating to meat eaters and... More

I had mixed emotions about CineBistro due to the wide variety of comments on tripadvisor. But, I decided to try it out with an open mind. WOW, was I glad I went. The decor was high class. The wait staff was attentive, patient, cordial, and very accommodating. I was impressed right out of the gate. I had the Bistro Burger... More

I was really expecting a lot from this place after the reviews I saw on here. Walking in, it is very welcoming. Nice decor and nice bar/lounge area to sit in before the meal. The theater itself is pretty nice and the chairs are pretty comfortable. I've been to several other theaters that have "comfortable seating" and were way nicer... More

Great new way to enjoy movies: the place offers very good food, you have to be there about 30 minutes prior to the movie starting time to place the order. The seats are very comfortable. You can drink alcohol! The food was very good but not excellent but the overall experience make this place unique. Some warnings: only 21 year... More

The seats are full size leather lounge type and are very comfortable. You must be 21 to enter.The food and service were excellent but very pricey. Lunch for two with one drink... More

Very nice cinema experience. The seats were very comfortable and the food and drinks were very good. It was also nice not to has little kids and teenagers. It was a little pricey but a nice evening overall.

This "eat/drink" movie theatre is fun for a one-time visit, but it is expensive. The house special cheeseburger with fries was about $16. The burger was OK; the fries were cold. A friend had the cobb salad.....mostly iceberg lettuce. Mac and cheese was quite salty. Drinks (wine and alcohol) are very pricey and quite small. Seats are large and moderately... More

Not your every day movie theatre. Definitely a couples place. Over 21 crowd. Option to have food and drinks in the lounge area before your movie. Great atmosphere. Good selection of food items and bar items. Very pricey but you are really paying for the unique experience. You could get away with your typical popcorn and soda for an above... More

Love the over 21 movie experience but wish they had more selections in their menu. For instance, expand the appetiser menu.

Awesome place to visit and have food while you watch a movie. The service is very good and the food is very nice and tasty. No kids and assigned seating that you can purchase your ticket online and not what's left for seating. Serve alcohol so no kids.
