As we left the Performing Arts Centre on Friday night, we noticed Dani's and as we had tickets for another performance on Saturday, we decided to try them for dinner. Although they were in the process of closing up, their door was unlocked and they were happy to book us a table for Saturday before the show. Dani's Bistro looked,... More

We just wanted to try one of those little restaurants across from the Performing Arts Center on St Paul street. We were not prepared for the cozy atmosphere, the friendly level of service, or the quality of the food served. It was a wonderful experience! The place is small and there were 5 customer groups there at the time of... More

Third location/reinvention of Dani's that I have visited - all very good - both service and food! Hopefully the patrons to the Performing Arts Centre will keep them in business.

Came in for a drink and ended up enjoying an amazing meal. Just listening ho the patrons around me I learned Yorkshire Pudding was being served with a great roast. So happy! Such friendly people! Highly recommended.

Went for a bite to eat and glass of wine. What can I say other than AMAZING!! Cod was out of this world, service was the best and great selection of wine. Baco Foch is my new favourite. Terri is such a fantastic server..she'll put a smile on your face each time. Keep up the good work Dani's!!

What a fabulous experience - my hubby and I had dinner prior to going to show at the First Ontario Centre. We did not have reservations, but were accommodated. The menu is small (which is a good thing) - some establishments offer way to much,! We started with cocktails and the charcutery board - yum! We then shared a ceaser... More

We had a great experience. I had the soup of the day and the shrimp and lobster burger. It was delicious, I would order it again. The bun it was served on was so good.

This is not our first visit to Dani's Bistro. So I won't duplicate my positive past review. However, I do want to comment on a, (new to us), menu item. All three of us had the 10 oz. prime rib main course. There is a chain restaurant, it's name beginning with "K," that advertises itself as having the best beef... More

Decided to come to Dani's Bistro with my parents and was not disappointed. I highly recommend the lamb burger (both my Dad and I loved it). The wine selection was full of great local (NOTL) choices. It is located right downtown so there are a lot of attractions near by. We will be returning. Our server Malinda also did a... More

We were here on a Saturday night before a concert at The Performing Art's Centre. This place is right across the street .We had reservations as this is a nice small bistro in downtown. We had a very unskilled server . We wanted to try a small sample of their house wine, red and white. This was a big deal... More

Lovely bistro located on wine route and across from the Performing Arts Centre. We carry a large variety of VQA wines, many by the glass and even on tap. Hard time deciding? We also offer wine by the flight. We also have beer and cider on tap. Delicious and fresh, join us for tapas, for lunch, dinner or dessert, you will not be disappointed. We also have a boxed lunch option.
