Amazing steak and friendly serviceAmazing food, the best steak I've had in a very long time. Wonderful, friendly, and genuine service!9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak I've Ever Had!The flank steak was the best steak I've ever had - hands down! Absolutely delicious! We ate at the bar and where Jen mixed up great, innovative cocktails. The service was friendly and superb. The ambiance feels kind of rumpus room but you can easily get past that - an outstanding meal in every respect.9/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome placeWe picked this place randomly to go somewhere in the area and it was amazing. Food is outstanding- the trout tartare was to die for. Very cool atmosphere. Love that they have 3 main price buckets for wine which are all listed on huge chalk boards on the wall. Our waitress were great and knew her wines.
Def a must if you like meat. We shared a cut and it was cooked perfectly.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertaining Out of Town FoodiesWe are repeat customers at Bestellen, even though it's not in our neighborhood. The team in the kitchen, behind the bar and in the dining room all exude their passion for food. We have taken a number of out of town guests there when we're looking for top notch food but in a comfortable, approachable atmosphere for people who may not be comfortable with formal dining.
The 32oz Cote de Beuf is a crowd pleaser and the burger is an unexpectedly delicious find. The menu isn't large, but we have never had any trouble finding something for everyone.
The drink menu is also alluring. Bestellen hasn't cut any corners whether your taste is provocative cocktails, craft beer or you prefer to choose from a wide selection of wine.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMdelicous food... meat loversdelicous food... meat lovers paradise, well priced6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMeat lover's paradise! BurgerMeat lover's paradise! Burger and Cote de Boeuf are simply the best.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMReally solid. Great serviceReally solid. Great service and all the food was timed and presented really well. We will be back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMlives up to expectationsSo often in toronto the "hot spots" fail to deliver outstanding food and service. Bestellen did both. Every dish from the shared plates to the dessert was a taste sensation. And not in a fussy pretentious way. This is just really well thought out good food.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, casual environmentWe had a night out recently and went here for the first time. Everything on the menu sounded so tasty. Lots of people were ordering the Bestellen Burger and it looked delish. Will be ordering that next time. That is, if. I can resist ordering the trout again. So yummy with creamy mashed potatoes, fiddleheads and lots of fresh dill. My hubby had the sirloin of the day with spiced buckwheat. Also so good. The starters we had were lamb tartare and seared scallops. The deserts were nice and yummy too. Good vibe., great service and an overall wonderful meal. We will be returning! Hopefully with 6 other people for the suckling pig!!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAll 6 in our party loved the foodEverything was excellent starting with the oysters ($1 each before 7pm) to the tasting plates, followed by the extremely flavorful mains.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Had dinner at Bestellen on May 24, 2013 with my wife.
The food was excellent!
We had the menu item called "The roof". Aged steak on the bone with two sides. It's carved for you and wonderfully presented, even with the marrow.
For dessert, we had chocolate pudding with meringue and whip cream. That too was excellent!
The decor was great! Very nice design.
I am a whiskey/bourbon guy... they have an excellent selection.
Will definitely go back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA Meat Lovers DreamTop notch beef plates, done just right make this place a carnivores paradise. Good drinks and ambiance, and you can't argue with the availability of a whole roasted pig.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Had the CoteGreat place. Had the Cote De Beauf. Flavorful must say.
Salad could need some work for their price. Drinks are too small I was surprise.
Place was a bit too dark for me. Service was overall great; Rida I think was her name.
I'd come back again to try their burgers next time.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak, sides, and valueRead it was one of the best in town and it did not disappoint. When the beef is that tender and tasty, comes with 2 delicious sides, and with loads of bone marrow, and all costs $98, what more could you ask for? Definitely returning.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, great ambiance.Excellent food, great ambiance. If you love meat, you can't do much better than Bestellen.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe kitchen was very slowThe kitchen was very slow but the service was attentive. We were offered complimentary drinks and made to,feel welcome. The food was mixed. The fish dishes are much better than the land dishes.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Burger I have had in a yearI liked the warm ambience of this place. We walked in and the staff were really accommodating because I didn't like the table they had for us. We moved to a communal table but it was quiet and we had it to ourselves. The cocktails were inventive and delicious. My husband enjoyed his rack of lamb and I absolutely loved my burger! Panna Cotta for dessert with rhubarb was light and delicious.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThese folks care about theirThese folks care about their product - everything cooked to perfection, great beer and whiskey lists, fantastic staff.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMouthwatering and welcoming.What more can I say? This place has got their act together. The service was stellar - probably in my top 3 experiences in Toronto ever. Food was stellar, dish after dish and we had a hard time deciding what to order. The grilled octopus was divine. Almost embarrassed to say I had never tried beef tartar before - this was certainly the place to do it. Melted on my tongue. I can't wait to return to Bestellen - it really was the "bestever" (sorry for the pun. couldn't resist).12/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
