I've been eating here for a many years, and it's usually for lunch, occasionally for dinner. This week a friend and I shared the fries (always good) and then we each had a salad. The caesar salad he had looked smallish, it had a ton of croutons and he said it was good. The quinoa salad was quite good, with... More

This is a lively bar/bistro offering an upbeat atmosphere with good food, wine and a great beer selection. The cheese and lager fondue was good and also a good pulled pork sandwich. The waitresses were very helpful and we enjoyed 4 or five very different beers from all over Canada. Enjoyed the Granite Best and the Collective Arts. This is... More

I went to the place tonight, because I am a big fan of mussel and heard some people around me said this place has the best mussel in Toronto!!! So, I had to try. Here is my review. The quality of food was terrible. There were too much spices in my mussel dish which gave a bitter taste plus so... More

We had a great time here at this bar. We actual ate at the bar. The bartender was very good and very attentive. My wife was looking at drinking a Pilsner type beer and even at trying a dry cider. He gave her the option of a flight which he hand picked and was of both types of drink. She... More

Came here twice on a weekend trip with my boyfriend to Toronto. They have a great beer selection and great bartenders. The next day that we came here the bartender recognized us and remembered our drinks and warmly greeted us with the beer before we sat!

Had dinner here - 2 couples. The service was efficient and our waitress was very knowledgeable about the huge selection of beers. She made very good suggestions and recommendations - so if you're uncertain- ask the staff! The food was interesting and very good - appetizers included a smoked salmon dish and perogies with caramelized onions. Main courses were also... More

Checked out the Beer Bistro during a stop over in Toronto. Arrived late at 11:30 at night and almost every table in the lounge was full. Got a nice little booth in the lounge and shared some drinks and appys. We were hungry after a day of flying so we thought we should order 3 appys to share. Huge portions.... More

A co-worker of ours recommended the Beer Bistro so we thought we should check it out. The restaurant has a nice layout and the staff are very inviting. Our server was quite knowledgeable with the many varieties of beer. So many to choose from so we decided on a flight of beers first, which helped us choose our favourite pint... More

My partner recently came across this restaurant when trying to find some dinner after arriving in Toronto around 10PM. Our hotel was 2 blocks away, and this was one of the few places in the immediate area that was still open. It was a packed house and the staff were all very nice. The restaurant is open concept with very... More

We chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance to the Air Canada Centre (where we were attending an event), and because we love to try new beers. It was easy to make a reservation on Open Table. The server was very knowledgeable about the different beers and advised us well on making selections for a sample flight. We... More
