    This place is an iconic steak house restaurant. They have been doing it right for over 50 years and they are actually getting better at it. Their servers are experienced and skilled. The BBQ chef is in the open and you walk by him as you are seated. We enjoyed every appetizer, every entre and every main course. They are good bar tenders and classy hosts.

    This was our first visit to the ‘new’ Black Angus. Décor was very nice. But the steak didn’t match up ! My son and I split the 1964 Original Caeser salad with a hint of curry in the dressing - excellent! I ordered the 10oz NY strip, medium rare with some frites on the side. The steak is delivered sitting alone on the plate – no appetite appeal at all. There were no juices flowing, and the steak was dry. Looked to be on the rare side of medium rare, and it wasn’t particularly hot. It had no taste, and it wasn’t very tender either. All in all – a disappointing steak. I have had far better for far less. I am getting tired of paying 4 star prices for a 2 star meal. Won’t be going back anytime soon, if at all

    Food was O.K Quite pricey though so expect more than O.K. Nothing really stood out. vegetables were undercooked. Service was great until towards end of meal then staff seemed to disappear. Nice ambiance. Great they retained all the classics from 1964.

    The bad: no prime rib left at 730PM and no white wines on the vintage wine list. The good - excellent service, price, great selection of reds and perfectly cooked steaks. Cream spinach was very good. Salads were average. All in all a very reasonably priced steakhouse with wonderful service and if you like a big Cab and a great steak - this is your place.

    It had been 10 years since we were last at Black Angus. We'd been told that they'd significant chances so thought we'd try it. Except for there being more women in the restaurant then previously - it was ok. The service is good. The food ok but everything - everything is over priced for the quality. It was prime rib night - which my husband loves and his comment was that it was ok. One of our favourite wines was on the list but $50 MORE then our very favour restaurant up the street - $50 more. that is just ridiculous! We will likely never go back.

  • New look, same excellent steak
    EpicuriusMaximus
    Dined on 7/26/2014
    There is still a subtle aroma of new paint at the freshly-renovated Black Angus, Etobicoke's premier steak house since 1964. That aroma is quickly replaced by the mouth-watering scent of certified Angus beef once the dinner arrives. We were a foursome ordering as couples, splitting our salads and rib steaks as well as 4 side dishes. I noted a clear difference in the size of the two salads that were served, even though they were ordered as identical from the menu. I also noted that, whereas we both ordered the same rib steaks, both as medium rare, there was also a notable difference in the doneness of the steaks, with one being clearly more rare than the other. More care in portion preparation would be an improvement. Service was excellent.

    They have recently renovated and the magic of an old fashioned steakhouse is gone. Food was generally good, but I had to send my steak back as it was prepared improperly. Food has declined since the renovation. Unfortunate.

    Forgot the name of the waiter who served us but it was on the 19th of July for the reservation for Samuel Riggi. He did a phenomenal job attending to us and never took too long to return to our table. As for the food steak itself I can easily put it in my top 3 that I have tried so far. Cooked exactly how I wanted it and was as flavourful as I imagined. Ladies at the front desk were almost kind in greeting us as was the Chef. An overall fantastic experience. My only complaint would be that I may now be addicted to eating here! Cheers

    Our group headed to Black Angus after cancelling our reservations at a well known steakhouse in downtown Toronto. We were all extremely happy with our change in location for our dinner get-together... The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable! Everyone was extremely happy with their menu choices... We will definitely be back and hopefully much sooner than later!

    We had requested a special table for 4, a week in advance, since we were both celebrating our wedding anniversaries. Instead, we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant, a table in the middle of the floor meant for 2 people, not 4. New items at the table required removal of others to make room. The steaks we ordered were excellent, probably the best steak I've ever had. The two women took half the steaks home because the smallest size the restaurant has is 8 oz. All vegetables are a la carte. Between the four of us, we ordered 2 caesar salads (for 4), 4 steaks, 2 potatoes (they're enormous), one order of asparagus (plenty for 4) and one bottle of house wine. The bill was $370 with tip, much too expensive to pay on a regular basis.

    Our family has been going to the Black Angus since the 60's. We have moved from the neighbourhood and well out of town, however, we save all our special occasions and use the Black Angus to celebrate them. It was a little different with the interior re-do, however, seeing at least two familiar faces made us feel comfortable! I have eaten steak all over N.A. and there has never been a steak that tasted as good as or prepared as good as the Black Angus.

    The steaks at Black Angus are probably the best in the city. Unfortunately one of the reasons that I used to go there several times a year was the very retro ambiance. The new ownership has destroyed that and turned it into a downtown restaurant clone.

    I found this restaurant by chance on open table as I was looking for somewhere in our local neighborhood to take my Wife and daughter out to celebrate my wife's promotion, Black Angus was a great find, set back from the road in a heritage type building, you walk through the doors into a high end restaurant, which rivals anything Downtown, service was superb and they made a fuss of our 2 year old, menu selection was excellent to the extent that my wife had two starters as she could n't decide, the filled melted in the mouth. We had a great evening rounded off with jelly beans for our happy 2 year old. Could do with a children's choice on the menu as you have to order an adults plate.

    I Found the restaurant to be very expensive; food and wine. As a general rule, wine cost should be 40% of retail; ie; $100.00 bottle should be $40.00 at LCBO. Their formula seemed to be 25%. I guess they're trying to recover the reno cost in a short period of time.

    We enjoyed a wonderful evening with our family - it was a special night and the professional at Black Angus more than delivered - they went above-and-beyond to ensure our evening was a success. From the moment we walked through the door we were treated like VIPs. The food is always bang on - incredible steaks, so buttery and delicious. Loved the "chocolate Candy" to close our meal. Thank you for everything!

    My father discovered this gem of a restaurant in 1964 and our family and friends have been clients ever since. The steaks are the best, outdoing all other steakhouses in the city, but other entrees are equally delicious. The service is attentive and friendly and unobtrusive. The restaurant has always had a quiet ambiance, creating an elegant dining experience. The renovated interior is chic and has managed to preserve the privacy and intimacy for small groups and larger groups alike. Memorable and worth every penny!

    Newly renovated, touch of class, exceptional steaks grilled on CHARCOAL, BEST steaks in the city bar none. Service is impeccable. Owner's on site every night and wants feedback, usually checks personally with customers to make sure their dining experience is the best possible. Harry, is committed to quality of food and service and takes it to the next level. Extremely passionate about his restaurant and genuinely cares about his clients dining experience. Few restaurants have a owner that loves being in the business, and who mingles with his clientele. Service is fantastic, all the staff have been working at the Black Angus for over 15 to 20yrs, that should say a lot about the type of ownership.
