My husband and I visited The Beer Bistro last week and are we ever glad we did! It is just a few steps from the One King West hotel where we were staying. We were greeted by a hostess who was friendly and professional. Our waitress was helpful and made suggestions for our selection of beer and took our order... More

With a HUGE beer list and wait staff to explain everything to you, everyone should be able to find something they like. Nice atmosphere as well.

Came here for dinner. Good food. Love the fact that it was made with the beer selections on their menu...and that they have recommendations for pairings.

We stopped in on impulse, looking for a meal and were pleasantly surprised. The belgium frites are a can't miss. Fried in duck fat, and melt in your mouth. Also a nice beer selection with some unique ones. Deserves the 5 stars I gave it

Went here with a group of coworkers this week for a late supper. We sat in the patio area. I had the burger, another had the pulled pork and the last of my group had the Duck Confit pizza. All of the dinners were really good. The selection of Brewers was excellent and certain recommendations were given with each menu... More

Been here numerous times and always had a good time. They have a great selection of local beers, and specialize in mussels - a variety of broths, and each with a suggested beer pairing. The staff have also always been really friendly.

Visited a few minutes after opening on a rainy Sunday so this could excuse the lacklustre service and experience. The smoked salmon bistro benedict was average and quite bland, hardly any salmon. The potato latkes were oily (base for the salmon and egg). One positive was the stuffed French toast, I must say the peanut butter mouse and chocolate sauce... More

Both the meal (porkloin and steak) as well as beer were fanstastic in quality (great meat cuts, super tender) and taste! The ambiance and service were of the same level. Overall experience 5/5!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to eat dinner for our last night in Toronto and we came across the beer bistro! The selection of beer is incredible! The food was was delicious but quite expensive for the portions that are served! I would definitely visit this place again

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.
