Awesome beer selection, a bit overwhelming actually, but servers very helpful. Had the pizza which was alright, nothing special, regretted ordering it with other good stuff on menu. Home made ice cream made with beer - get the chocolate peanut butter with caramelized bananas!

My husband enjoys beer so we wanted to try. The beer menu is very extensive but our waitress was very knowledgeable in her suggestions. It is not a very big place but on a Sunday night we got right in. We had a few appetizers and my husband got a burger BUT I got the hog wild pizza- wow!! it... More

We visited Beer Bistro on our recent trip to Toronto. Due to flight delays we arrived much later than expected and pretty much in time for dinner, therefore we decided to book a table at Beer Bistro as we had read about it before flying out and it was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel. We were able... More

I had dinner here on November 4 and 5. Even at 6 p.m., the place was crowded and very noisy. I had to sit where they had room. This is a happy place for beers and / or food with friends. If you are looking for quiet conversation or an intimate night out, this place may not work for you.... More

Beer Bistro has a great selection of draft and bottled beer as well a variety of mussel dishes (there are other items on the menu). The room is nicely decorated - high ceiling light coloured walls with a bar and seating as well as separate (same room) seating plus exterior. Good service

I was visiting Toronto this week and wanted to take my daughter and her fiancee out for her impromptu engagement. Beer Bistro was recommended by our hotel concierge and I am so happy that it was! They had an excellent selection of international beers, and although my wife usually hates beer, our server took the time to address individual tastes... More

Best part is their beer selection... Organized in a way that's easy to read and navigate through the types of beer you like. Service is excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Food is fine but not outstanding. The place was filled up, and inevitably was little bit loud.

I came to this restaurant with guests from Ottawa. It was a birthday celebration, and we heard how great a food is here and how many different choices of beer they offer, so we decided to try it. The reservation was made for 5:30, however, the table was not available for about another 20-25 minutes. When we finally sat down,... More

Beer Bistro was a worst restaurant experience of my life. We reserved a table to selebrate my daughters birthday. The table was not ready then first guests arrived, and they had to wait for 30 minutes to get the table. Due to bad traffic situation the main party was late, and then they arrived, we were allowed to order food... More

This place was recommended by one of my wife's colleagues. I went for an early lunch, around 11:30 am and sat at the bar. I tried three different drafts which were all amazing. There is so much selection compared to what I am used to living in the Maritimes. Their fires are to die for. I only had to see... More
