Our story...

For almost 8 years we operated successfully as a wine, cheese & charcuterie bar. We focused on high quality, excellent value wine, food and cocktails. In March 2020 we made the decision to temporarily close due to rising concern regarding Covid-19. Shortly after, the Canadian government ordered all bars and restaurants closed.

We have been working tirelessly to survive through the pandemic, and, like many of you, are faced with numerous concerns every day as a result of conducting business and living during a global crisis. 

First we ran a take-out program. When the Ontario government gave us the green light to sell alcohol off-license we opened the  Marché/Bottleshop with our sister restaurant, St Veronus. When the city gave us permission to use the adjacent sidewalk for patio space we opened our first ever patio. We have reinvented our business time and time again in order to stay relevant and survive.

Next we bring you The Dining Room. An intimate dining space, very limited seats, an expanded French-inspired bistro menu and an extensive reserve wine list. It's not exactly as Le Petit Bar once was, but we are sure you will love this latest development. Private dining for you and your bubble available upon request. Contact us for more information. 

We are so pleased to be able to continue to do what we love - making great food and serving great drinks to our community. Thank you for your endless support and encouragement. We feel the love.
