Huge selection of imported beer (both draft and bottles). Adequate food menu (burgers looked good). Belgian Frittes seems to be a specialty. Friendly wait staff Easy location

Lunch on the patio. Service was awesome, food was amazing, and I even found a beer that I like (and I didn't think I liked beer). So many different kinds to choose from.

What a great little place with superb bar eats and a fantastic selection of brews both bottled and on tap. Selections from around the world and create your own sampling courses that were both delicious and fun. The blond bartender, I think his name was Greg (too many beers), is so much fun behind the bar and so knowledgeable. He... More

We were looking for a good place to eat prior to our first trip to the Air Canada Centre for a show. Beerbistro (this is the proper spelling of the establishment) is only 15 minutes walk to ACC and it came well recommended. We were not disappointed. The physical setup is very inviting. Wait staff were very pleasant and knowledgable.... More

I was looking for a place for a quick bite and a good beer. Can't remember how I foudn this place, but agree with other reviews. Small bar section with a larger sit-down area. Nicely decorated, in manly hues and 3 large screens over the bar. Kind of loud for a restaurant, but not so much for a bar. About... More

Had a great dinner on the patio - service was terrific (thanks Nick) and everything was tasty. Had mussels (many preparations to choose from), onion soup, steak tartare, and perogies. The tartare was incredible. Their pairing suggestions and menu notes are really great!

Belgian fries in duck fat, an Ontario nut brown ale, and PEI mussels in white wine -- what's not to love? A great lunch place in downtown Toronto. Fabulous beer menu is a given, but the food and service are equally excellent.

I stayed across the street and happened to get sent there by someone in the elevator. The bar looked a bit small and seemed stuffy however I was instantly greeted by a fun bartender. The beer selection isn't the biggest I've seen but they had all the bases covered. For dinner I ate Curry Chicken. It was by far the... More

If you enjoy a Beer tour of the World, The Beer Bistro is the place to go. With beers ranging from the back to San Francisco and Europe, you will enjoy the finer tastes in life. Try my favorite, Arrogant B from San Francisco with their house specialty Grilled Pork Chop....Damn so good!
