Latin American
Uno, Dos, Tres..Baro! Derived from the Latin American slang word for “barrio” (meaning “neighbourhood”) we bring you our Baro, home of Chef Steve Gonzalez. The Latin spirit is undeniably contagious. From the southern tips of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile, to the lively street cultures of Colombia, Uruguay and Brazil, the energy of its diverse people radiates throughout the cities. It livens the neighbourhood and awakens the Baros! Baro is first and foremost a restaurant, showcasing an exceptional cocktail program and refined dishes along with fan favourites from Valdez. Chef Gonzalez has made it his mission to bring South America’s dynamic food culture to Toronto where traditional Latin culture and cuisine can be reimagined with distinct modern flair, and become something entirely its own. Baro will also feature a 2nd floor Raw Bar Lounge. To top things off, we created The Loft, a 3rd floor, 1,850 sq. ft. event space that we know you will love.
Welcome To Our Neighbourhood!

Baro is a great place to eat. The food and service were really good in the restaurant. I would recommend going for dinner. We did check out the club and latin club. We found the security to be rude which was not necessary. We also found it disappointing that after you spend a lot on dinner that there is a $10 charge for the latin party. It was a younger crowd so we didn't stay long but music was pretty good.

I am giving you 4 stars because you tried so hard. Let me explain. We have been to Baro before and enjoyed it. We had reservations for the evening of December 23rd. The restaurant was going to be closed on December 24 / 25. It seemed like everything we wished to order was sold out since the restaurant was clearly trying to have minimal waste with the upcoming two day shut down. The biggest problem was that we were waiting on one of our party's dinner to arrive. When we asked, it was then that we found out they had run out of that dish also! The staff did make it up by comping the two appetizers we ordered to replace the main course.

The orders that could be filled when prepared very well. The steak was done to perfection. Extremely tender and flavourful. The duck rice is just excellent. Recommend you let it sit in the stone bowl for a few minutes so that the rice next to the stone gets nice and crunchy.

Baro has also done a good job bringing the music volume down a little so we can actually have a conversation at the table without yelling. This is something I commented on in the past.

So Baro - I will give you another chance, likely not at a point where your fresh supplies are so limited.

The menu is a little unexpected when considering its a latin inspired venue. However, the food was
excellent. It was a pleasant surprise.

Came here for dinner and had a fantastic experience. The apps was extraordinary, but our favourite was the fried rice duck confit. Drinks are unique and tasty!

First impressions were awful, as the hosts were disorganized and dismissive. We checked in 5 minutes early for our reservation and was seated 10 minutes late, only to enter the dining room and see several available tables.

Our server was excellent, as was another server who delivered our food.

The fish tacos and the yuca frita were delicious and perfectly cooked. The Lomo Saltado was great as well. The Duck Chaufa was flavourful and the rice was fantastic but the duck confit itself was tough and dry. Great wine selection. Price is average for King West.

I love Baro! The atmosphere and service are amazing. Our server, Avery, was great and was very attentive to our needs:) I was slightly disappointed in some of the dishes we ordered- specifically the cavatappi (the flavors just didn’t go well- there was to much going on) and the chicken and avocado rice. I’ve had better dishes in the past. I’ll definitely be back though!

Had a fabulous dinner once again at this epic restaurant. We sat at the Chef's counter and they never disappoint. Jose our server was incredible that evening and went the extra mile to explain the menu in detail. Overall it was a wonderful night with great company and delicious meal. We would definitely return!

Stellar service all around - the hosts, servers, bartenders and the manager that touched our table were all amazing and accommodating. They made us feel very welcomed and at ease during our entire experience. The server was on point with her menu knowledge and made all the right recommendations + the food came out fast and tasted delicious. We had a great time!

I was impressed about the Flavor of the food and fair price. There is a nice atmosphere there. We had 2 servers they were both good but the girl (the one we Ended with) is very good in service. After dinner we went to the patio floor for mistake trying to reach the club, the guy who assisted us there to find the club was very nice and brought us where we were trying to reach meanwhile explaining us about the place. The club we didn’t like it at all we were expecting better music.

We didn’t love the brunch items we ordered - the salad seemed over dressed and the avocado toast was too small a portion for just under $20! Good ambiance but maybe best to come for drinks or lounging!
