Exvcellent food and efficient service

After 2 weeks failing to find a really nice restaurant in the Georgina area, the Blacksmiths Bistro in Unionville was a revelation. Carapaccio of beef and Morocan Slewers were shared as a starter, and were flavousome and well presented. Steaks, pasta and pizza as main courses were all very good... read more

This past week I visited Blacksmith's with my 91 year old cousin who uses a walker. I made a reservation and told the waiter, we might be a little late, but to hold our table! When we arrived, he was at the door and couldn't have been more helpful in getting my cousin into the restaurant and seated. The service... More

A great summertime spot to be seen hanging on the patio but when things slow down in the cold rainy fall the quiet downstairs pub ambiance makes it a good place to hunker down for a great meal. For dinner we prefer the upstairs dining room with the same elegance it's had since it opened. Cappuccino's are buried in milk... More

My wife and I met a friend here for lunch on a recent trip to Toronto. We all had grill cheese sandwiches and either soup, salad, and/or fries. All the food was of good quality. We were all happy with our meals and we were not rushed out of the place. A really pleasant experience with very solid food.

Went with my girlfriend for her birthday (Her choice). I didn't want to go after the horrible steak I had last time. This time: New day! I had muscles. Ask for extra dunking bread. Yum! I also had the swordfish. Excellent! I saw someone at another table had steak. It looked like 1" not the 1/4" I got last time... More

I think that the food and the ambiance at this restaurant are nice. My husband took me to lunch here over a year ago and I remember that the service was okay, but not fast, considering it was a weekday and it wasn't busy. So I brought two of my friends here for lunch and we waited one hour for... More

This is our favourite place to eat in Unionville . The food is always great and the service top notch. The owner greets everyone and makes a point of making sure you are happy. Try the smoke salmon, the owner suggested this to me and it was amazing ! Clearly the best restaurant in Unionville and Markham !!

Food is on a pricey side but it is delicious, very good portion. Do trip the striploin and rack of lamb. They are cooked perfectly. Yummy!

Blacksmith's Bistro is one of our go-to restaurants on Main Street in Unionville. The food is consistently good, lots of great choices and an excellent wine list. It's a cozy and warm space as well and the staff are fantastic, warm and friendly. Highly recommended!

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. The service was great. The food was fantastic. I've been here about 3 other times and they are consistently great. One of the best restaurants in Markham, and I've been to many.
