Cesar salad with chicken was delicious but literally had garlic breath for 2 days. Pulled pork was good--generous sandwich portion but limited sides. Beer selection huge and well described in detailed Beer menu

Really enjoyed our drinks and meal in this easy to find location. Cool atmosphere, great service, excellent beer selection and interesting menu. We found ourselves trying each others food as everyone was so happy with their dinners. Reservations on prime nights are a good idea

Went for dinner while in town for business. Great selection of beers (both draft and bottle) with descriptions of each. You can get a flight of 3 drafts as well which is great to try a few varieties. Good menu, some more novel selections as well as twists on originals. The fondue was really nice, although I would have preferred... More

The Beer Bistro was very busy on a Tuesday night. Our server was first class by every description, he recommended food, wine and beer after getting input from us on what we liked. I had the Wild Hog flat bread pizza and my wife had beef checks, both were outstanding. They serve the difficult to find Delirium Tremens Trapper Monk... More

If you enjoy mussels, frites and beer, Beer Bistro is for you. Mussels are prepared in various ways. My favorite is the traditional Belgian White. The Belgium frites are blanched in beef & duck fat. Delicious. And to finish it off, Beer Bistro has many different selections of beer to satisfy any palate. Be sure to take a look at... More

Enjoyed a Czechvar with the red Thai mussels at the bar. Very yummy! I dine out frequently in Toronto and was impressed with the vibe of this restaurant. Very friendly staff, totally unpretentious. Refreshing change from the usual T.O. attitude. Perfect place to take a date, especially if he/she is into beer.

I am usually pretty picky when it comes to review, but must say, this place is worth checking out. The menu went to crazy blending beer in all their dishes. I thought wine would have better been suited with some. Went to Toronto on business and everybody said the same thing. This place can be an icon if they settle... More

We stopped after a Raptors' game and were very pleased with the whole atmosphere. The beer list, as you might imagine, is extensive. The food was good (mussels) and the staff courteous. Would certainly go again.

This place was an excellent choice for dinner. The food and beer where very good. Service was good. It was very busy even on a weekday so a reservation is a good idea.
