  • "It was very thoughtful of the staff to pre-split out fries and Onion rings when my friend and I wanted to share our side orders. Thanks"

  • "We sat outside hoping it would be quieter than indoors but a band started to play in the square. This made it a little more difficult to carry on a conversation. Also, the food was not as delicious as I thought it should be for the price. I had eaten there before and the food was quite tasty on that occasion and justified the price."

  • "Bymark has always been my go to places for lunch downtown. Food is still good. The Street Burger is very tasty , but the tempura onion ring is tasteless and a bit soggy. I do not think the temp of the oil was hot enough when they fired it. Service could be better. Our server seemed to have her mind elsewhere! Probably the table next to us ordering many bottles of wine! We asked for desert menu twice and by the time we got it ten mins later, we did not have time. She did not seem to care! With many up and coming new downtown restaurant, this old guard better watch out"

  • "The place may not be easy to get to if you are driving, given the amount of grid lock from downtown traffic rush-hour and construction. Once you find the place, it's actually nice ambience and fairly quiet in the dining room. This was a Tuesday evening, so the Thursday to Saturdays may be different. The food is different than your standard chained restaurants as the ingredients used with different spices creates somewhat of a fusion style for some items. You can still get your standard raw half shell oysters, seafood platters, etc. It is definitely a place to try for any occasion or just on a date with someone special."

  • "I had previously read mostly positive reviews about Bymark and it was in a convenient location to our hotels so I booked it on Open Table with great hopes. We certainly weren't let down by the food, which was quite good. I had the pan seared halibut while my friend enjoyed the duck breast. It was a glorious summer night so we dined out of doors, which served only to enhance the evening. We did have a bit of trouble understanding the server, but she was generally attentive. I would give the restaurant good marks overall and would not hesitate recommending it to others. The restaurant is well designed and puts forth a snazzy ambience."

  • "Our meal at Bymark was incredible. Every dish was delicious and it was clear the kitchen made every ingredient count. From the duo of veal which came with tiny "Pommes Dauphins" to the foie gras starter, the food was exceptional in it's preparation and inventiveness. The service was also very good, and we received helpful advice on our wine selection. The dining room is beautiful - the only downside was that we were literally the only table with guests on a Saturday evening. There were others upstairs on the patio, but inside, just us. It didn't feel too awkward though - all the candles were lit and we felt a bit like we had rented out the whole place. They probably closed after we left, but we were not rushed at all."

  • "We had a noon reservation. We ordered our food soon after our arrival. Our food did not show up until 1:10PM. It is a busy place but we were not there for 2 hour lunch. It truly was a disppointing experience."

  • "We had a very good meal this past Saturday. The place was practically empty which made for a very nice quiet evening with my wife. Obviously Bymark is more of a mon to fri crowd. To start we had the shrimp tacos and the buratta. The shrimp tacos were exemplary. The beet crisps were light and had just the right crunch for the nicely seasoned shrimps. The buratta was mediocre. Kind of bland. For mains, my wife had the lobster ravioli and I had the short rib fettucini. The ravioli was quite different than what I imagine most people expect. My wife very much enjoyed it. The broth, the lobster. I on the other hand didn't like it at all. I'm very glad I didn't order it. I would have been disappointed. My pasta was very enjoyable. "

  • "Another great night at one of MM places. Everything was flawless. From the hostess taking us to our seats promptly, the servers being attentive, the food being fantastic (I love their burger....on par with Minetta Tavern in NYC). Burger was perfectly done at medium+. Kale caesar was a nice change of pace (had a nice peppery kick to it). I'll definitely be back. It was nice and quiet during my visit. None of the Gordon Gecko wannabes showed up that night, which I prefer. I understand this place can get very busy with all the "suits" in the area. I always make a habit of visiting my favorite restaurants on a Tuesday or Wednesday. I don't like being part of the "feed'em and street'em" rush."

  • "Our Thursday night visit to Bymark was more quiet than we thought it would be. Interesting specialty drinks began the meal, followed by excellent ravioli and beef filet. The side dishes are not to be missed. Service was excellent, as we had our waiters full attention due to small crowd. Slick, modern design as well."

  • "Innovative appetizers like shrimp "tacos" (shrimp and aioli "salad" in crispy beet "shells"), and individualizable entrees like tender grass fed filet mignon with your choice of sauces (horseradish, green peppercorn and orange, etc), make for a memorable and palette pleasing meal. Service was attentive and professional, and decor was minimalist. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The meal was excellent. Service was not bad, but I found the knowledge of the menu from our waitress was not that great. Seeing Mark Mcewan's attention to detail on Top Chef, I was surprised the waitress could not recommend a wine pairing for our meals. Didn't even consult with the chef. Again, not a criticism, just a note. Service was friendly and prompt. "

  • "took my wife for our 6 year anniversary. Great service, great atmosphere. The menu is quite pricey - I knew that ahead of time. Food was good, however I wasn't "wowed". For the money they charge, I deserve to be wowed by the food. Wasn't a bad meal by any means, but you will walk out saying to yourself it wasn't worth the money you spent. "

  • "Celebrating our anniversary. Came to Bymark and had a wonderful time. The service was exceptional. I had told the staff beforehand we were celebrating an anniversary, and requested a more private area. They sat us in a cozy corner with wrap-around bench seating so that we could sit right next to each other. And to top it all off, they surprised us with a little "Happy Anniversary" dessert on the house. The staff was amazing, and I couldn't be happier choosing Bymark to celebrate our anniversary."

  • "It goes without saying that every single time I visit Bymark, I am always so pleased and walk away with the satisfaction in knowing what a great place Bymark is for lunch. This time around I tried the Halibut for my main and have to say it was one of the best Halibut's I have had to-date. It was light and delicate, complimented beautifully with lentils, peas and nice little touch of tabbouleh. The staff and service are also always top notch, no never have any complaints."

  • "First time going to Bymark. Been to Fabbrica numerous times but wanted to try the more upscale location. Was medium-ly impressed. The service was fine....still cannot close a table but this a problem all over Toronto. Not sure I would go back considering how many great restaurants of this quality there are in the city.....perhaps just an off day for a great brand."

  • "I always enjoy Bymark and I head there whenever I have a craving for the lobster poutine. I also had the duck confit, which was great and followed with a honey bourbon safe creme brulee. We brought our 5 year old son, and they were more than accommodating in getting hime what he wanted... penne pasta and a lobster tail. My wife had the chicken and enjoyed it. Bymark is a very solid and consistent restaurant for the family, groups and couples."

  • "My husband & I were there for dinner last Saturday. The restaurant was 1/2 full - lively but not too noisy. Our server was knowledgable and friendly. She was attentive - we never had to wait when we required anything further. We had the Lobster Poutine as a starter. It lived up to the hype! The fries were perfectly cooked & they were very generous with the lobster portion. My husband had the burger - he said it was one of the best he has ever had. I had the fettuccini with braised rabbit. It was good, but nothing special. The highlight for me was the chocolate & roasted banana torte. In a word - fabulous! On the whole, a wonderful dining experience as expected. We will be back in future."

  • "This was my first time at Bymark. It turned out to be absolutely excellent. In particular, the food was delectable. I had the Sage Chicken ($35) and it was so tender. The sauces and the vegetables were amazing -- my wife kept sneaking a taste of it. I want to go back just to have this again. My wife had the $40 Steak Filet, and it was perfect too. We both felt the food had subtle flavours we might expect in Europe. My wife said this was the best food she's had in Toronto. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was not packed, but there were enough people there to contribute to a good energy. The lights are dimmed a bit and it was quite romantic for celebrating our birthdays. The soft corner seating was quite relaxing. This is a gem."

  • "Went to Bymark on a Saturday night with the wife for a date night. The food was incredible. We had the beet salad, mozzarella salad, the burger, 39oz steak and the ripini. Everything was amazing and delicious. My only negative comment would be that it was a bit of a pain to find after parking. Other then that it was outstanding."

  • "The food and service at ByMark are amazing. We typically order daily specials at a restaurant but the regular menu here is impressive enough that you'll have something amazing to try either way. We were impressed that they didn't try to upsell us on wine when we asked for a recommendation--something oddly uncommon these days. The service from the entire team was great. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Booked a lunch for 8 people during the last day of Winterlicious. The restaurant wasn't overly busy. The staff was super friendly and the food was amazing (as expected). The only downfall was the amount of time it took to be served. A set Winterlicious menu took two hours to be served from start to finish. We found we were sitting and waiting far too long between courses."

  • "I'm from Halifax and whenever I am in town, I try to get to Bymark. This was my fifth visit and and it never fails to amaze me. The adage "never as good as the first time" does not apply! It was an unfogettable meal. I must confess that I get the Bymark Burger every time. There is a reason why I'm nicknamed Burgerboy, and why this restaurant was recommended to me in the first place. I even had the same waiter as on my last visit. Not something you typically recall, but the service was so remarkable on both occasisons, I remembered. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had!"

  • "Always a good bet for lunch. Service is quick and professional. Wine by the glass has some good options. There is usually at least one portion of the meal that is not executed to perfection though. This time the Risotto was a too stiff and the shrimp tough. My last visit, the bearnaise was overwhelmingly sour. Get the Bymark burger. Always perfection."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Food is always good here, solid meal and great wine selection. I was appalled by the service via this latest visit. Our waitress had a large group to tend to but she 1) did not ask which type of water we wanted and just poured tap water (I wanted sparkling, partly because i had an upset stomach from earlier in the day), 2) our waitress had no knowledge of wine or wine pairing, very bad form for a restaurant to Bymark's caliber. Otherwise, food was very good."
