If you are in Toronto and you want a great place to dine (and you know you are on the top of the food chain) this is one place you should visit. Probably one of the best steaks I have had in years

Excellent food (steak was cooked to perfection) and amazing service. Amazing old school vibe to it. The wine cellar is superb too, go see it at least.

My family and I visited Barberian's on our last evening in Toronto. We did not have a reservation and the front of house staff said they would sort us out with a table. We were immediately shown to our table and the waiter took our drinks order. Once the food came, we were very impressed. My father and I had... More

Service was very good, prices are fair given quality and location. Tenderloin was fantastic and the prime rib was very good. Tomato onion salad and French onion soup were both excellent. The pickles that accompanied our meal were superb.

We went and booked a table then went for a drink before hand. Came back to be greeted by the staff that took our bags and... More

i was told this place was special, but as a european i was thoroughly disappointed. in my opinion this is a simple steakhouse, with average cuisine. we all had steaks, and not everyone out of a party of 7 was happy with the cooking of the steaks. you would expect a steakhouse to make perfect stakes. the accompanying dishins were...

It is a typical old fashioned steak house. I have not eaten here before but my husband has many times when he's going to the Leafs game. The food is good and as expected. This time we were here for a night cap after another event and we also watched hockey. The bar is tiny and so is the TV... More

I finally got to Barberian's after hearing so much about it from family and friends. We went with another couple and it started out fairly well with prompt service and attention. The steaks were cooked perfectly although the fries were lukewarm. As the evening progressed the noise level increased noticeably and by the end of the evening we could hardly... More

The food and service were outstanding. One of the best steak houses I have visited. Pleasant atmosphere, very conducive to my business meeting. I hope to visit again with my family the next time I am in Toronto.

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.
