Great location in the core of downtown. Well appointed and very good service. A little on the pricey side given portion size, but food quality is wonderful.

Bymark is a very popular business lunch and dinner venue. The main restaurant is part of the Path system, so it is very convenient for bad weather days. It's celebrity chef, Mark McEwan, ensures a good experience. The main restaurant has no windows so there is never any natural light. Fine for an intimate dinner, but less uplifting for lunch. If you want light he also has a more casual bar above ground in the courtyard of the TD Plaza. This is a very popular venue for after work drinks and a nibble, particularly during the warm weather months. You might wish to start there and then descend into the restaurant when the sun starts to set.
Bymark has private rooms and they have lots of experience in handling groups. One debit is that the noise level gets quite loud when the restaurant is full, because there are lots of hard surfaces that reflect the din. Having said that, if you like a lively buzz, you will find that.

Wanted everything on the menu. Had the Lobster Poutine...sooo amazing!!! And the 16 oz ribeye.... 10/10. The al a carte veggies were fantastic like grilled Brussels sprouts with candied walnuts and garlic mashed and sautéed mushrooms. Desert were these tim bit sized doughnuts just made filled with a decadent cream and fresh Carmel sauce for dipping. They were OMG and you literally wanted to offer one to the table beside you. Make sure you bring lots of money but definately worth it!!

This, in my opinion, is one of the better spots in Toronto. The menu is comprehensive. The chef has a great touch with flavours. Lobster poutine is outstanding for instance! Very nice service. Only issue is the fact that the location is underground. No windows. But lovely overall.

Bymark was recommended to us as one of the best restaurants in the city. We chose it as our last dinner in town.

The space is very nice and there is also a bar with a good vibe upstairs. The food was amazing. We had the shrimp tacos and lobster poutine as staters. For dinner, my wife got a steak (which was excellent) and I got the Dover sole. It was the best piece of fish I have ever eaten.

We were going to pass on dessert because we were full, but were so glad we did not when the creme brûlée donuts arrived at the table. The warm caramel sauce topping made each bite memorable.

This was a great place to cap off our trip to Toronto, and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
