Disappointed with the steak, duck and mushroom were amazing. we had a cozy corner so that was excellent for our lady night out. Server didn't refill our hot water timely, we have to request them multiple times. Front desk girl was very friendly and we felt warm. I want to impress my overseas friend with the steak but it turned out disappointing.

I brought my staff here for a "thank you" lunch. We were able to have a great conversation with one another and not shout to be heard over the noise of the other diners. We were also comfortably seated and not squashed up like sardines in a tin. Our meals were also delivered in a timely fashion and was very tasty. It was an enjoyable and stress-free lunch.

When we arrived there was no host to greet us. We waited before stepping into the restaurant to join our friends. One of the staff rudely asked if she could help us and we let her know we were joining friends. Our main server (I can’t recall her name, she had red hair) was very nice and friendly. The rest of the staff seemed like they didn’t want to be at work and did not look particularly pleased to be there. Half of the party that arrived first were offered bread and water. The entire evening we were not offered bread. None of the courses came at once, half the table would be served and then after a few moments the other half would be. Some of us had the same dishes and the description by the servers of the food was different. For example one party had a detailed explaination of his appetizer and the other did not though they ordered the exact same thing. The appetizers were quite good yet the main that two of us had was under seasoned. We had chosen Bymark over Canoe (a restaurant that the four of us have been to and thoroughly enjoy) and it was a let down which none of us was expecting given the high reviews that Bymark receives. The details that set apart a place like Bymark from somewhere like JOEY restaurants were missing and it really spoiled the experience.

Excellent food quality and presentation. Pricing appropriate for the quality of food. Good range of creative choices. Over-priced house wines a serious disadvantage that will limit the frequency of our visits. All well and good to have a superb cellar, but less expensive open wine options should also be offered. That is the civilized thing to do.

TD Centre signage insufficient for easily locating the restaurant.

Excellent food, waitress was very unprofessional. Gave us attitude when asked for separate checks, and after waiting 25 mins for change she said they usually don't deal with cash as most use business accounts. Very snobbish!

Had to send back the pasta special of the day. Way too salty. Well handled by the staff but not acceptable. The cod was over salty but edible. Two of the three dishes were sub-par. The steak was fine but underwhelming.

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?

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.
