This must've been the worst experience we ever had when it comes to restaurant dining.
As a person with European background I am not extremely demanding when it comes to restaurant service, a decent table with decent food and a friendly service usually suffices. Do not need, nor expect royal treatment...
But with Bier Markt on Friday night the experience was surreal (in a bad way).
We have booked a table there mainly because they have heated patio (at least, that's what they advertise). With temperature near freezing mark in Toronto, we don't know anyone who would like to have a beer outside in the cold on a Friday night... but that's just us.
But when we got there the person checking us in at the entrance announced on a passive-aggressive tone they have no heaters for us and no place in the tents (which are heated). She sounded like we almost bothered her with the request to have a heater, as advertised on their website.
We've tried to explain that the whole reason we booked in advance was to have a heated table (as Seinfeld once described it appears they know how to take the reservation, but they don't know how to hold the reservation)- it goes without saying that no one else was sitting outside on the patio without heat.
When we've asked to speak with a supervisor she announced us (again on the same passive-aggressive tone) that she is the manager on duty that night- and in an extremely shouting voice she offered her (fake, we dare to add) apology.
We left and we intend to never go back there.
Heaters were a cheap small thing that did absolutely nothing, tents were freezing. screwed up my order while i ordered, then when i asked for it in takeout boxes because of how cold it was, they ignored me and brought me my food plated and then when i asked a second time she didn’t pack one of my apps and we left without it even though i had payed. they need more than 2 waitresses on the floor.
The were missing half the items on the menu and all the vegetarian/pescatarian options. We left and went elsewhere.
Usually a good place - very disappointed in this experience
Great ambience, love the outdoor sittings. Good food as well.
No host to greet us the entrance.
Food seemed to take longer to arrive.
Portions too small for the price.
I understand this is all due to the pandemic but just being honest. Other restaurants have adapted and stepped up.
Good luck and stay healthy!
Patio not heated.
There was a tent up and heaters but the tent wasn’t closed so there was a draft. It was very cold.
We had very very slow service, a lot of bee’s and my friend got stung. Also had a hair in my main course Fish and Chips. We came out to support a local restaurant but were very dissatisfied. We spent $200
Great spot. Dined there during covid. Was a bit worried about the patio not being warm enough. Although I’ve been to other spots where the patio heaters were well used and it was warm enough, this restaurant offers three enclosed tents (closer on two sides) with seating of three booths nicely spaced out. There was one heater but it was small. It was warm enough. Food and service was good as well.
We had a good time at Bier market. Tents make a huge difference when it rains. I wish they had more heat lamps.
Food was good and server was very pleasant. I will definitely come back.
I really enjoyed the food and the service.
Attentive service. Food served quickly. Social distancing in place.
Restaurant is great, but through no fault of theirs parking is not easy (normal parking lot has been torn down). Have to walk fair bit from car
We had great time, food was good and ambience very pleasant.
Went for a Sunday lunch with friends. Great service and good food.
Friends get together
Would have loved to sit outside as the atmosphere was really nice. However, a little too cool for me.
Wanted to seat in the patio
But there were too many BEES flying around and into my food!!!
The restaurant was great and the service was even better. The food can be on the pricey side but it’s well worth it for the atmosphere they create!
Friendly and informative server! Delicious food and perfect portions.
Server Kyler was terrific! Food was great!
Not enough shade coverage after asking for it
Huge patio area but we chose to eat inside. Decent amount of people. Precautions all in place with tables apart. Attentive staff. I had the Beef Brisket Dip and my friend had the fish n' chips. Both meals were very good. Will go back again.
Good food. Nice service. Knowledgeable about beer. Very pleasant patio.
The food was excellent and so was the service. The waitress was very helpful.
The food was cold when it arrived and it was terrible. We ordered the nachos and there was barely any stuff on them.
Service and ambience was really good, great location. Food was average maybe the ones we ordered. The servers were really great at the entrance and at the table. Their manager was very clear on how we should use our gift card but way too loud and we think the whole of Don Mills heard it. It's best she reduces her volume cause at the very next table she was very casually chatting and giggling with two guys softly. :) Wonder why. May be she should learn how to approach all walks of life in this ever diverse city Toronto. This was on Friday Aug 7 after 6 pm before 9 pm.
Good food. Great service. Nice patio setup outside.
Great patio. Comfortable distance. Good food and wine. Sad that the menu had changed due to the virus. Was looking forward to a typical Belgian meal of mussels and fries.
It was pretty mundane.
I was very impressed with all the safety precautions taken as I was taking my elderly parents out for dinner for the first time since Covid hit! We all enjoyed the patio, the food was great and we felt very safe dining there!
Our hostess was friendly and great and so was the rest of the staff. Was very happy to see they took Covid precautions seriously by disinfecting the tables and chairs after guests have used them. However, the food itself was just ok. We expected it to taste better because of the price and description. We ate outside on the patio and they had umbrellas set up to shade customers from the scorching heat, which was great.
Good steps taken for safety. Not too extreme like other places and made a restaurant feel like a restaurant again. Very friendly staff!
Enjoyed my burger very much and it was a nice experience on the patio.
Good servers, decent food.
The Biermarket has a big patio with plenty of room to social distance. My friends burger wasn’t cooked properly. They took it back with no fuss and the chef cooked up another one right away. She even got a discount on her burger. It was a beautiful day to hangout outside. Service was great!
I made a reservation and did not have to wait, as soon as we arrived we were seated. Our server Brick was very friendly and enhanced our experience greatly. The food was excellent for the price as other patios tend to charge a bit more.
I would definitely go back again.
It was a celebration of my friend’s retirement. The food was good but the service was very minimal . I know that the plates are being removed by someone else then the waitress but we spend over 1 hour with dirty dishes on our table
