A charming setting for an intimate superb meal. The various small rooms were chock full of antiques. Be sure to check out the cavernous wine cellar. The wine list was like a phone book! So many choices. Confuse as to what to get? Ask the wine steward / sommelier for helpful suggestions. BTW, there are some great local wineries not... More

This restaurant continues to be excellent. Service is relaxed and timely. The steaks that we had were delicious, well charred and tender--have the smaller one unless you are very hungry or are going to share. The wheat beer on draft was very good and the wine list is extensive.

It started with the Cab drivers, "If you are looking for the best Steak in Toronto, you have to try Barberian's." The best advise I ever took! From the Owner meeting you at the door and truly being interested in getting to know you, to the very efficient and friendly staff, the whole experience was amazing. I have been to... More

We took the Chateaubriand and it was the best steak we got on our honeymoon! Possible the best steak and steakhouse in all of Canada, at least on Toronto!

Fritz: Going to Barberians is akin to stepping on to the set of Mad men. It is clearly old-school charming with a simple yet filling menu. The wine list is in a word spectacular, they have for the example a vertical of Château Petrus from 1964 to current vintage (we did not partake). The wine cellar holds around 15,000 bottles... More

Fantastic meal with outstanding service which really made it for us. We ordered a bottle of white wine and chatted with our lovely waiter about how I prefer red but my partner doesn't like it. When our steaks came our waiter offered me a glass of red to compliment my steak as a gift from them. I was speechless and... More

When I first walked in I would say that I was not overwhelmed. It felt more unsafe than charming, but if you were not there for the ascetics, the other restaurant qualities were quite good. I went straight upstairs, so I dont know what the rest of the restaurant looked like. We had a small room upstairs to ourselves which... More

My three sons and I had one of the best dinner experiences ever at Barberians Steakhouse. The steak was succulent, seasoned and prepared to perfection. Our server was excellent, attentive but not overbearing. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. To top it off, when they asked if we needed a cab back to the hotel, the owner went above and beyond...

We paid over $100 each for steak and ended up being quite disappointed. It was not cook to perfection. The decor is old and dated. There are way better steak places in town.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
