JLB (Janet Lynn's Bistro)

Updated Classics, Modern Flavours

Before you even sit down you will be swept up in the beautiful atmosphere of JLB's exposed brick, polished stainless steel, the crisp black of the server's aprons and their red Converse sneakers. Wait, what, sneakers? The JLB experience is about fine wine, great food and an ambiance that's a fusion of casual and business. Whether you're looking for a quick bite to eat with your jean clad friends, or entertaining business guests, JLB works on all levels.

Since 1985 Janet Lynn's Bistro has been creating innovative culinary creations and their signature dishes are now well known in the Waterloo Region and beyond! Their menu includes bistro classics with contemporary attitude made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Market fresh ingredients inspire weekly specials so be sure to drop by and ask what's new or have them bake you up a fresh home-made pizza in their stone oven.

Paul Roberts The food is amazing. All four of us enjoyed everything that we ordered. The pizza was amazing and it is the best pizza that I have ever tasted. The servers were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Saroj Patel Excellent hospitality. Chef is ready to and willingly make changes to accommodate Vegan Vegetarian preferences. Desserts are decadent. Little minute details with class and best presentation - Loved being here.
