Pricey but delicious

Like any good old-fashioned steakhouse, dinner started with an assortment of delicious, most-likely homemade pickled veggies and a bread basket. Their wine selection is exceptional, you can't go wrong with having wine. Salads are average but massive. One is enough to share. My husband had the steak... read more

We always look forward to dining here. The atmosphere, service and dinner is second to none. The house salad with blue cheese is fantastic. The wine selection of 20,000 is wonderful, although it can get pricey. The service was very good and, oh yeah, the steak dinner was great. Can't wait to go back.

This is an old school steak restaurant perfect for special occasions. We went there without any reservation on a saturday night and were very lucky to find a seating, as another party was exiting earlier. We had chateaubriand with bearnaise and it was at par with top restaurants in Paris. It is expensive, so beware, but it is definitely worth... More

My husband had picked this restaurant as our special meal while in Toronto. Had read the other reviews and knew it would be expensive, but we love food so we're happy to pay. We arrived without booking and were given a table no problem. There is a coat check, nice touch but another excuse for a tip. The menu is... More

Barberian's steak house has been around for years. A great restaurant to celebrate birthdays, etc. Went with my family for a celebration. While not inexpensive everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was good even though the restaurant was very busy. Not a trendy cool restaurant but an old fashion steak house. Restaurant has a great wine list. The ribs were even... More

Ok so the reason I gave it a 5 star rating is based on its steak, which is why you would come here. They also have an incredibly extensive wine list that is really a wine novel. The service was above and beyond from the moment we stepped into the place. The decor can be described as elegant with a... More

The prices are on the high side but the service, the food, the atmosphere and the extremely well matched wine made it great value. The owner.host Aaron treated us look long lost friends and our servers worked together to provide absolutely incredible service. The wine list is second to none and the sommelier assisted in choosing a wine at a... More

Barberian's Steak house is a voyage back to the 60's. The decor is retro suburban basement- a true man-cave environment. The wine list is incredibly extensive and pricy and the service attentive. The food is very dated, unless you want to consume the better part of pound of meat and a baked potato the size of a small village your... More

Celebrated my wife's birthday with friends & family. Steaks were all outstanding. Melt in your mouth. Beautiful wines well matched by Will Predhomme, master sommelier and gracious host Aaron. It's no accident that this steakhouse has remained at the top for so long.

The service here is amazing, but I don't eat meat (I know you are thinking "why did you go here then?"). Well, I was invited here, and I hoped they'd have a chicken dish, which they didn't. Instead I got the Salmon which was great, and Escargots are to die for. The prices are on the high side and if... More
