Bumpkin's Restaurant & Bar
During the spring and summer months, Bumpkins offers an outdoor dining experience on their terrace, complete with a view of Norman Jewison parkette. Distinct to the menu is a selection of masterfully conceived dishes ranging from the baked garlic butter escargot bourguignon to veal chop with mushrooms to the steamed fresh P.E.I mussels. All of the fine fair can be accompanied by a selection from the extensive cocktails and wine list.
Filet of Sole Meunière
Filet of Sole baked in lemon juice, butter and paprika.
Scallops sautéed in a lemon garlic butter sauce.
10 oz. wrapped in bacon, grilled to your specification, topped with minced garlic.
Horrible service I would never go here and they charged me for my meal even though it wasn’t to my liking.
I've never been disappointed. While Bumpkin's in the heart of Yorkville, it continues to be a bit of a hidden gem. Great for a date or just for a casual get-together.
This is a very nice restaurant near Yonge Street between Bloor and Wellesley (it's on Gloucester). The room setup is for fine dining and the food and service are excellent. At lunch time, there are usually just a few people there, so you can have a comfortable and personal conversation without worrying about noise or being interrupted.
Superb. Excellent. I shall return.
Very quiet on the evening we visited. Pricey menu for what was provided. Main courses were nothing particularly special.
We visited Bumpkin’s late on a Sunday for our anniversary. It was a fabulous experience. The decor and ambience is very romantic and attractive. Soft beautiful jazz music played. The food and menu is large, diverse, and delicious! Everything was prepared perfectly and was a great portion and value. The service was spectacular. We felt so special and will remember the meal forever.
Excellent food! Very busy restaurant, service may be slower than expected, but food makes up for it.
I really like this restaurant, awesome food and service and moderately priced...

Went with my friend for her birthday,we really enjoyed it very much and planning to go back.
Good ,different menu.i had duck a l’orange and my friend had sole....
Both of them very well done.
Went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. They had not been back in this restaurant since new management 19years ago. Food was well prepared. Service was rushed and unwelcoming sadly.
Bumpkins does live up to it's name. It is in a lovely house, but it has not been updated or at least refreshed. Food was VERY basic even though the menu gave the impression of French cuisine....Canadianized. Our server always seemed to be in a rush though there were many empty tables. We chose this venue because it was close to the CAA Theatre. Bumpkins gave us a 15%discount on the meal because we were attending a Mirvish production.
The service was outstanding and the food exquisite. Would love to return sometime soon.
We were not impressed
Great food and lovely waiter!
My waiter was so kind & thoughtful! Unfortunately I didn’t get his name. I will go back again & recommend it to my friends!
We enjoyed a great meal before show at CAA Theatre!! Had the price fix! Good value!
Would come again!
It was quiet the night we were there. Server was friendly, enjoyed our price fix dinner. I would return.
I haven’t been to Bumpkin’s since my early days in Toronto - it was wonderful then and did not disappoint now. Wonderful cuisine, the staff attentive and friendly. The food was SO good. Wish we had too for dessert! A great place to go before the show at the CAA theatre - a 2 minute walk away. Glad to see that Bumpkin’s is still such an icon of the Toronto restaurant scene.
We made reservations for 5pm when it opened for dinner. We had arrived early and began waiting under the canopy because it was raining. We were let in early and offered seating inside the restaurant. We were then offered our table at 5 beside the window. Perhaps the rain deterred people from coming out to dine, but the restaurant was quiet while we were there. Service was exceptional and the food was delicious. We would return.
I haven’t eaten at Bumpkins in years and it was so lovely. Food was delicious, portions were perfect, pre-theatre dinner was timely but not rushed. Will definitely keep it on my list!
Great meal prior to theatre.
Open table/restaurant have not honoured the points, reservation was attended for at the original time placed on OpenTable, points are not appearing
Old and tired. No surprises with the food. Nothing changed in all the years they have been there. Friendly and welcoming
The food and the service was fantastic! Would definitely go back again and highly recommend it.
Everyone is made to feel very welcome at Bumpkins. The menu is varied and the food is excellent. I have been eating at Bumpkins since 1975.
This place is dated. Which could explain why not many ppl on a Sat night. But then the food came and that really was explained why not many ppl. It was meh! My sole was mushy. Everything else was just okay. However I must say our server was Great! He would be the only reason my family would return. But I’m sad to say I won’t be going back, nor would I recommend.
It was a nice place to have lunch prior to the theatre. 4 older ladies for lunch, would have been nice to know the the lunch portions were huge, far too much to eat. The food was good, just would have ordered something different had we known.
Good food and good service. Not special.
It was the perfect spot for a pre dinner show with the CAA Theatre in walking distance. Their escargot appetizer is fantastic! Dinner portions are generous with perfectly cooked vegetables and they have amazing desserts!!
My filet was cooked perfectly and the potatoes were incredible. We could not have been more graciously served. We are visiting for 5 days and plan to return before we leave. 👍🏻
Great restaurant food was very good - great location
Everything was great, only a few minutes to the CAA theatre. Food was excellent and our waiter was the best. We will go back.
Went for dinner with the family. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. My daughter has a nut allergy and he was good about making sure everything was ok for her. Overall we had a great meal and my family loved it there. Would definitely go back next time I am in Toronto.
Terrible soggy wedding food. Stay away. Send my food back and reorder was just as bad.
Exceptional as always. Lychee martinis refreshing & yummy. House-baked buns fresh & warm. Smoked salmon appetizer flavourful & filling. The Artic Char was a major main course providing an exquisite palate of pleasurable tastes. And the crème brulee dessert - outstanding. My guests (whose meals were different in choice yet similar in quality) and I thoroughly enjoyed our time on this quiet, lovely street side patio. The service is equally exceptional - Angelo & Min are consummate hosts. Bumpkins is a memorable and marvelous restaurant experience. Well done. We will be back soon (indeed we made our next reservation before we left). M&M
fantastic service, fantastic food, great atmosphere
We are regulars at bumpkins. I remember when it first opened in the ‘70’s. Great food. The staff treat you like friends.
Maybe my new favourite restaurant in Toronto. Didn’t even know there was this level of food and service so close to Yonge & Bloor. Will definitely bring visitors to Bumpkin’s when I want them to have a great time.
Although I have been to Bumpkins several times for lunch, this was only my second visit for dinner. A friend of mine was visiting from Ottawa and I wanted to take her here for dinner and we both enjoyed it very much; everything, as always, was great.
I just wish that the scallops (best in Toronto) were on the lunch menu so that I could have them more often!
Food was excellent but inside a little dated. Service very good. Parking is tough, police ticket every car on the street after 7 PM unless you have a city permit.
Very enjoyable restaurant
