The waiter was not the best, we waited 5 minutes for him to come and say hi and give us water even though only 4 tables were occupied. We had to ask what the specials were. Maybe he was having an off night but if it had been our first time there it would have turned us off to coming back even though the food is great.

Impeccable food and service, but the restaurant was very quiet for a Friday night in Toronto. We were the only people in our section. I assume it's busy for lunch... or has this resto come and gone?

The food was excellent. Only negative was the sides came out after I finished my entree. Seemed to be server error, and I took this as a one off error. Food was so good it didn't matter to me about the mix up. We enjoyed our dinners and apps. Very happy overall

Laura was great in personality and service. The duck was well seasoned, the grav lax on smashed avacado as starter was a special treat. My wife enjoyed the pumpkin raviolis with starter salad. Cocktails were prepared by a knowing hand. We recommend the Saturday evening non-crowd for great service and quietude; weekdays might change the vibe to a high end business crowd with noise and greater service demands.

We were surprised that the restaurant was only a quarter full on a Friday night. But that just meant a quieter atmosphere.

Lobster poutine, whole fish and banana cake were all hits. Jerk ribs and scallops a miss. Scallops perfect but ribs had no jerk spice and portion (three tiny half ribs) offered only a taste and was not nearly enough. It looked like they forgot a portion on the plate.

Service was solid. Would have appreciated a second offering of bread.

Courses were paced properly. We will return.

We hadn't planned on going to Bymark. We had reservations elsewhere but changed our minds due to the rainy weather. What a great decision. The food was awesome. We had the grilled calamari & octopus and some oysters to start and they were great and our mains were just as great - pickerel and halibut. I know we are coming for dinner and to check out the bar area.

Beautiful Restaurant, wonderful staff, food was good but did not reflect the price. Had a $95 45 day aged steak we could have had at the Keg, Ruth's Chris for half the price. Also, both of us ended up ill later that evening.

My friend took me here to celebrate my retirement back in April and I returned the favour for her birthday lunch this week. The food was awesome. She had the brisket sandwich special and I had the halibut. Our server was polite and attentive without overdoing it. I would highly recommend Bymark. I also liked the wine so much I purchased a bottle at the LCBO.

We were 4 guests, two of us took the Shrimp Linguini and both returned the dish as it was so salty it burned our tongues. The server came back with the Chef's apologies, but the damaged was done. Neither of us wanted to try something else.

Third time to Bymark and won't return. The Fogo Island cod tasted as if was freezer burnt and the pork belly was soft with no crispy crackling. The service was clumsy and inattentive. Bathrooms were filthy. Best of the night was the sorbet.

Although the outside ambiance was very noisy, the food was delicious (especially the shrimp tacos) and the steak was perfect. The right amount of juice and also very tender. Our server Angela was incredible at accomodating both my mom and I's gluten allergies as well, so very special thanks to her.

Burger was blah! I've had burgers all over North American and this was the worst. Might as well book a room at the ER after eating the fries and onion rings. No onion in onion rings like eating greasy batter. On a positive note sever was great. Receptionist needs a new job or take a course in hospitality.

Dinner was spectacular and the staff were exceptional and very accommodating. We were not aware that we had to reserve Summerlicious much earlier just thought everyone got that menu. They allowed us to have that many anyway. Three of four of us ordered off the regular menu anyway but the Summerlicious menu was great.

We went to Bymark for our anniversary because we had met Mark at a cooking demonstration and had seen him on Top Chef, and it seemed like he knew what he was doing. The food was great, not in our budget as a regular spot but I did not think it was unreasonable for the quality of the food. I have been to other celebrity chef restaurants and paid WAY more and left feeling disappointed and quite frankly ripped off, but this was not the case at all for Bymark. I will return or perhaps try another of his restaurants. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

The service we received at Bymark was tremendous. We had a great waitress who constantly checked up on us and gave great and honest recommendations. The food was very yummy as well. My boyfriend and I went to Bymark for Summerlicious and we would definitely put this at the top of our list. It lived up to our expectations. The lamb dish and tuna tartare were our favourite dishes. Their portion sizes seemed small at first but it actually was the perfect and most filling portion. We would definitely go again.

Delicious Summerlicious menu. Our table had a number of items. Personally I had Salmon Poke, Braised beef cheek pasta and S'Mores for dessert. Salmon was fantastic. Main and dessert were good choices, and others at the table liked their choices of pork main and Ahi tuna. Caesar was just a Caesar. Great service from our waiter.

Although it was a good experience overall, I found the service I received to be quite poor. The head hostess did not make any eye contact or smiled as she greeted me or another table who arrived just before me. My server did not greet, nor introduce himself, nor check up on my table for the entire duration of the meal other than to bring the dishes and clear the table. When I asked for the bill, the server seemed displeased that I needed it to be split between 2 people. It felt like there was no courtesy from these two staff at all...

Service aside, Bymark is a lovely restaurant with a nice ambiance. It's a little dark inside with lights dimmed but it creates a nice setting to dine in. The noise level is moderate, no need to shout over each other nor the need to whisper. All the ingredients tasted fresh and flavourful, and came promptly one after the other. A note to add though, I'm not sure if it is a Summerlicious-specific setting, but the two person tables are very close together (about one foot away from each other) so beware if you don't like cramped spaces.

I saw other servers with enthusiastic attitude and service, so the two staff I encountered may be just having a bad day? I would love to return if the service improved.
