Food & service good but noise awful and i will not return.
Great food and the scallops were amazing. Prices are great for the quality of the food and the atmosphere
Great food and atmosphere for a dinner with friends. Interesting menu, well prepared, timely service, will return.
Everything is always delicious. Great presentation, service, food and ambiance.
We enjoyed the Wiener Schnitzel and the Scallops. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful.
A neighborhood restaurant for us and another wonderful meal. Lobster ravioli was delicious and the service is attentive. Would recommend for special occasion and everyday dining. We enjoy the panelled room to the left of the front door as it is quieter than the main section of the restaurant.
We just celebrated both the New Year and my retirement. It was a wonderful meal, beautifully paced, delicious food..... thank you and we will be back.
Great service and delicious food - enjoyed the evening
An outstanding meal every time I go there. I also bought 2 gift certificates for clients , who I want to try this restaurant
Outstanding food. Lobster ravioli and Nova Scotia scallops both excellent.
Great restaurant. Delicious food and very good service.
Barnsteiner's is successful only as a neighborhood restaurant due to its proximity to local homes and condos. It is not a destination restaurant.
Food is always consistently good. Sit on the bar side, better ambiance
Sadat our waiter was fantastic!
I would most definitely go there again. I had the Crab Cobb Salad and it was out of this world, (and I'm a Cobb Salad fanatic!) We also had the scallops which were delicious, along with pureed asparagus soup and the mushroom risotto.
Everything was awesome, especially the Cobb Salad.
The food was very good and a good size for lunch/brunch. Dessert (sticky toffee) was excellent. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was nicely decorated for Christmas. We did, however, find the wine prices higher than at other restaurants.
Another lovely evening at Barnsteiners. Great menu with options for everyone. Server went out of his way to make the night enjoyable. Our kids loved their food and really loved dessert too.
Loved the Blackened Halibut and Thai soup to start. Amazing flavours
3 out of 4 did not appreciate the size of their portions. Advice, when one orders a risotto, it really should be a fair size, after all it’s mostly rice!
A great place to host a party. Fantastic food, wonderful ambiance and attentive staff. It’s almost always packed, so be prepared to sometimes wait a while for your food.
Wonderful food, friendly service
Very pleased. Was not made to rush to order even though one of my friends was late. Only reason I did not give a 5 star for food was that I am used to no salt so I found it a bit salty for my taste. Everyone from my group loved their food
Great service!! Food was exceptional and so flavourful. Had the blackened haddock and spouse had salmon 💋
Our go-to night out for apps and drinks. Great food, great service. Will certainly be back!
I always enjoy the casual elegance of Barnsteiners!
My wife Deb and I attend there all the time and love it. I was in the restaurant earlier in the day when they had a very unfortunate incident when someone drove into the back of the restaurant. The staff handled the situation so professionally and the care and attention of Michelle and her team was truly outstanding. I highly recommend Barnsteiner’s.
The food and service was very good. The seating is a bit cramped and I would prefer not to sit so high. The noise level is high.
Had a really great experience. So happy we came! Service was lovely, food was nice and we will definitely be back!
Consistent and reasonably priced. Good service. A perfect fit for the neighborhood.
Four of us were there to celebrate a birthday.
Ambiance was fun and lively.
Our waiter was very good and accommodating.
Our meals were good overall but the Brussels sprouts were overcooked, a bit mushy and a little burnt. We ordered the rack of lamb and the steak frites. Rack of lamb was cooked medium rare as requested but could have been more seared on the outside. The sauce was a bit sweet for me but the birthday girl enjoyed it. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and delicious.
Would definitely return!
We went for our anniversary . The waiter seemed more preoccupied at a large table than looking after us. Ordering dessert and coffees we had our coffee and the dessert didn’t show up until having to wave down our waiter . The food came out barely warm .
I have been there a few times before and was looking forward to a good meal .. what a disappointment...
Our favorite restaurant in Toronto, food is excellent, whatever you choose, specials are amazing. Service is impecable, atmosphere great and value for your money
Back in 3 days!
The food was delicious! The atmosphere is lovely. The service was a little slow but on the other hand we certainly didn’t feel rushed. Would definitely one for another get together.
Always count on the food being great, but felt rushed by the service.
Another lovely dinner at one of our best local restaurants. A varied menu and great service, in a pleasant atmosphere.
The food was amazing and the staff were very attentive and friendly throughout.
Food was great, service good.
Only negative was tables for two that were offered to us were small and in poor locations - either right by the entry door or jammed into a small hallway space in the back which was too tight to other tables.
On the 3rd try got relocated to a better table near the kitchen.
Outstanding food and service as always! Whenever we are back in Toronto, we make a point of going to Barnsteiners.
Good is great here. Everyone enjoyed their food - and the deserts ticked all my family’s boxes! Service was professional but a bit patchy and inconsistent. Given It was a busy Fri night but still...
