I visited the beer bistro with a friend on June 21, 2007 after reading the restaurantís website.
The selection and the quality of the selection was extremely good. Draught and Bottled selections from the world over, I didnít count the selections, but the accompanying 20+ page professionally printed beer menu attests to their being a large selection.
The atmosphere was similar to that of a swanky restaurant with modern decor. Certainly not the type of place that is aiming to attract the beer drinker aiming to simply get drunk.
The service was exceptional. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the products we ordered, as well as questions dealing with íwhat goes best with this dish, etc). He was also very friendly without being íin our spaceí.
I felt that in some cases the prices were a little steep but the food was very good, and the beer selection was great. I will be making a return trip (probably several)."

Simply stunning upscale bistro. Food is great and beer bottle list very surprising with vintages and 5 year verticals available. Tap list is a little mundane. Pricing is a bit high, but inline with the trendy atmosphere. A must for a nice night out.

I stumbled across this gem in the hopes of replacing the once great Volo with something more classy. This place is fabulous, and Iím slowly becoming a regular. The staff are avid beer enthusiasts (not just reading from a cue card) and so down to earth - not to mention all of the them are gorgeous, yet approachable and darn quick. The atmosphere is so stylized and classy. I canít speak too much for the food because I go for the beer, and when I dip into the food-stash Iím usually quite plastered (will attempt more objective deduction later). The selection is extensive and reasonably priced. The only potential drawback is that given itís location on King there are a lot of pompous and beer-ignorant business men that go there for image - but some of them are quite nice (beware of snakes). All in all, this place has a LOT of personality and charm. They know what theyíre doing, and they do it well.

The selection is the largest Iíve seen in Toronto. Food is great. Service is great. A win all around if you are downtown Toronto and looking to get your beer on.

I was very impressed by the Beer Bistro. It is a very classy place, with a very comfortable bar area and an inviting dining room. We sat at a table in the main room. Fairly extensive tap and bottle list , with an extra cellar beer menu. Prices were not cheap, but not out of line with the quality of the space. All the food sampled at our table was very good, I especially enjoyed the Kobe beef tacos and the mussels , but everything looked great and my party was very satisfied with their food and beers. Definitely worth a visit or three.

A nice, cozy bistro in downtown Toronto. It is a hopping lunch spot - we arrived around 12:00 on a Wednesday afternoon and the place was fairly empty - within 20 minutes it was completely packed with business people having lunch. There is a small bar area, with seats facing the sidewalk outside, and a dining area. The tap list includes local beers with a decent selection. The food is excellent, on the pricier side though. I got the BBQ chicken pizza and it was excellent. I could imagine myself spending the day here drinking beer and watching the street traffic. Great spot!

Highly recommended on RB and sites like TripAdvisor as well. Food is excellent and is a slightly more upscale take on food than other local beer places. TRY THE PULLED PORK. Tap list is a good mix of locals and imports, they have added some hard to find stuff to the bottle list but they donít always arrive in large quantities. Prices are slightly above average for Toronto, but the old adage about getting what you pay for holds true. Well worth it, but more of a rare treat for those on a budget. Service is generally excellent. Can be a bit noisy when busy.

I visited here three times during my TO trip. Great layout, great tap selection, even better bottle selection with a surprising "reserve" cellar list as well. Excellent service. I had two dinner meals on two separate visits. The first was excellent, the second was just okay. Having said that, I would still very highly recommend this place.

Top spot on International level. Extensive bottle beer list with very rare stuff to buy (at price). Food is very good if not superb. It get bit loud due to design of this place. Plenty of corporate folks go there as its trendy spot for law/banking folks. Staff is very knowledgeable about beer. Must visit when in town.
