Spent some quality time at the bar with Greg the awesome bartender recommending several great Canadian craft beer choices. Also had a Bistro Salad which was very nice and light. Finished off with their homemade vanilla bourbon ice cream topped with a caramel sauce, by far the best ice cream I've ever had.

I've been going to Beer Bistro for the past 9 years - ever since I arrived to Toronto. It's one of the few places I can get Kwak Belgium beer, which is my favorite. Aside from a great range of beers, Beer Bistro has awesome food. Very recommended - their Belgian frites (blanched in beef and duck fat) - yum!!!... More

Sat outside and had superb service. Extensive beer menu and adequate wine.. did not eat a meal, but the frites were enough to prevent total fall-down after a long sit in the sun.. Well worth the visit!

We were in town for a concert and decided to go for a stroll to find a spot to eat. While wandering around downtown, we came across Beer Bistro with friends and decided to drop in for dinner before a concert. We were seated inside as the patio was packed (looks like a great spot to spend an afternoon!) and... More

We arrived in Toronto at about 8PM and decided to try this spot. We were seated promptly and our waiter knew his stuff about beer. We shared a scallop appetizer which was simply amazing. The DW had the white fish which was great and I had the steak frites which were also great. I tried three different beers. A stout,... More

Found this place more or less by accident while staying at the Kind Eddy (almost across the street). Fantastic beer list, frites to die for, and the staff have actually been trained!!! I cringed when my SO asked our twenty-something server a question about their wheat beers, but was very happily surprised when she came back with a helpful, informed... More

Overall - this place was great! Food was great - short rib pizza was outstanding, great mussels, great drinks! Our server was very good, helpful, and attentive! The hostess is the only poor part of this establishment! If I wasn't meeting someone there I would have left. She acted like the biggest snot - we were looking for a table... More

If you're going for the beer, have fun. The servers are knowledgeable and the beers are wonderful. However. There's always a however. The Bison Burger tasted pretty good, but was full of gristle. And was clumpy and stringy. Stringy? A burger? Really? Whether there was an issue with the grinder was not discussed, and the waiter comp'd one of the... More
