About

This restaurant is permanently closed. The Bier Markt first opened its doors in Toronto in 1999 and has grown to 8 unique restaurants in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and St. John’s Newfoundland. At the Bier Markt we draw our inspiration from Northern Europe - its culture, its passion for food and of course it’s dedication to the beautiful art of brewing bier. The Bier Markt boasts a selection of over 150 biers from over 30 countries and local craft brews. The Bier Markt is not only infamous for the bier selection but for a “made from scratch” approach to cooking while perfectly pairing bier with some of Europe’s classic dishes and North American favourites.
There’s never a dull moment at the Bier Markt. Each restaurant has its own built in stage to feature great, local cover bands playing the best of the today’s and yesterday’s anthems. The Bier Markt’s exceptional AV packages also make it a great place to catch the game with friends. Prost!

A little disappointed with our first (and likely last) visit. The waitress told us all about the happy hour specials and after we ordered based on this she said oh wait...it’s 7:01 happy hour is over...🙄

The music was loud where we were sitting and was competing with the live music already playing. When we asked if it could be turned down or off considering there was live music playing our waitress said “No. They won’t turn it off”. It was very jarring and unpleasant....we couldn’t wait to finish and get out of there. Now I understand why there was only about a dozen people in the restaurant on a Saturday night.

We will be back!!! One of the best steaks we have had and we have had a few. Amazing service, great atmosphere. We were very impressed with this location and what was here. We are rebooking for this coming Saturday and this time bringing friends.

The food was quite delicious. Much better than your typical pub food! The place was a bit loud, and the ambiance/atmosphere was not bad. I would recommend this place to someone who is a bit tired of the same old go-to places like Boston Pizza, Montana's, etc.

They didn’t have a table for us or another party so seated us upstairs which was strange because it was technically closed. Waitress barely came around after we received our food although food was ok. I won’t be hurrying back.

Food was awesome; I had the striploin and the quality was amazing and cooked perfectly (med-rare). Fries and onion rings were great. Flourless chocolate cake was a little bit dry.
Service was ok; waiter was very polite and all, but seemed rushed, even though it wasn't busy. When he took our order and delivered our food it was like he was zipping by on the way to other things; didn't even get a chance to ask for a drink refill or steak sauce or salt and pepper, which there was none on the table and he didn't ask if we needed anything at any point. Kind of bare-minimum service. I also asked for mushrooms with my steak (which was all good) but they ended up being $6 on the bill which is nuts.
But I was very impressed with the food overall.

The difference was our server - Sonja. Probably one of the most pleasant and professional I have encountered at any restaurant. She made everyone feel welcome and explained the menu in a patient and helpful way. Thanks.

Made reservations but restaurant part was closed, only bar area open. Stayed and ate but not a great experience. Open Table should be current with status of restaurant.

I loved the food and the service. However when booking a reservation I had hoped to reserve a table that wasn’t RIGHT NEXT to the bathroom and in an uncomfortable location. Otherwise the dining experience was great.

No tonic available at the bar, according to waitress they’ve been out for a week......um someone needs to go to the store!
Place was half empty on a Friday night....you have to ask yourself why.

We arrived early (10 mins) for our reservation, but were seated immediately. Our waiter, named James, was very hospitable and helpful in making our drink selection from the extensive beer list that this restaurant provides. The waiter was very attentive throughout our (myself and two friends) evening, asking if we were enjoying our beers, offering suggestions, and taking our orders for food and beverages throughout the night. The prices are a little higher than chain restaurants, but well worth it for the quality of the items, the staff, and the ambiance of the venue. Can’t wait to go back!

Was there For dinner on july 5. For the most part it was enjoyable. Alison was our server and did an excellent job. Appetizers were well prepared and tasty.
Only disappointment was my entree -chicken Schnitzel. It was rather dry and lacked any taste. The only flavour was when dipped in the graveyard which I had on the side.
It was my first time there and went to have the Schnitzel. Well below expectations. Will most likely go back and try again.

The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and worked to accommodate a party of 6 that had different dietary needs. The food was amazing! The Bier Market has become my "go to" place to bring visitors and friends over the past year because of the staff and the food.

It pains me to write this, but experience was sub par at best. Service was good, server was friendly and attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is pretty lack lustre... could not order the pizza....appetizer selection wasn’t great. Had the mussels which were very tasty and flavourful. Sharing board was not good and severely overpriced. Half the included items didn’t come out upon delivery to the table but the server went to get them....however the musical duo was great! Sangria was good and the beer selection is vast. Flourless cake was also very good....I likely won’t be rushing to go back for food, however drinks and entertainment were great.

The food was okay, there was nothing on the menu that made me excited to order. There must have been a lot of salt in the food, we were bloated for the entire night after and still didn't feel good the next day. It's pub quality food at restaurant prices.

This was our first and last time here. We went for Valentine’s Day and there was barely anyone there, which is extremely weird for a special occasion and for a new restaurant on the waterfront.

•Found eye lash in my appetizer
• waitress forgot to get my boyfriends water
• fries were so salty that we could not eat them
