“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

This evening my wife and I along with a couple had dinner prior to attending the local theatre. I had made our reservations online which was easy and very convenient.
We were seated promptly next to a window. Unfortunatley it was dark but the lights of the area made a very pretty view. We were treated to fresh bread and butter along with ice water. Our server told us the Wednesday special which was a pasta and beer package. My wife and I ordered the pasta and beer special. The pasta was linguine with bacon, mushroom , garlic and a white wine sauce. Our friends ordered the butter chicken and baked spagetti.
Our order came in a decent period of time. The pasta special was a good size and was delicious. Our friends enjoyed their choice. Apparently the butter chicken was a bit on the spicy side, but very much enjoyed.
We all commented on how tasty the food was and the price was reasonable. We will be returning again soon
Oh yes, we got to the theatre on time.

Our first time at the Arms Reach Bistro, definitely won’t be our last. Met with some friends on their recommendations and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

First impression was great - The ambiance very pleasant and the view of Deep Cove was beautiful.

The Hostess was very welcoming and our server was extremely cheerful and pleasant.

Good selection from both the dinner menu and wine list. Heard brunch is just as good, will definitely be checking that out!

“Perfect Food, Service & Atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

My family - 9 of us - had a special 80th birthday celebration for my parents at "the bistro". We had the best time. The service was perfect-efficient, friendly, professional. The evening was so enjoyable because we were really taken care of. We just focused on each other, the fabulous food and drinking fun cocktails and wine. We all ordered different things and traded bites around. Everything I tried was really good - well prepared, thoughtful, imaginative, fresh. The wine list is good and very reasonably priced.

Thank-you for helping us make a memorable birthday celebration for our parents.
