Bistro
With a nod to its place in Toronto’s food history, the completely reestablished Peter Pan Bistro brings a contemporary update to the classic traditions of dining out. Peter Pan demonstrates that accomplished cooking does not require a fine dining atmosphere and aims to balance these elements by refining the neighbourhood bistro.

Peter Pan subscribes to the "nose-to-tail" philosophy, popularly readopted over the past few years. This approach extends beyond simply the consumption of meat, instead embracing the responsible use of all raw ingredients. More than an education through food, what some take as byproducts of cooking, nose-to-tail sees as ingredients in the search for pleasure.

Iconic Peter Pan Bistro has survived through the changes to Queen St. West. They set up in advance for our party of 14, took orders quickly and delivered all the food at once. And the food was great - Eggs in tomato and peppers, giant burgers, Cornish hen. Our group highly recommends this restaurant.

Quiet restaurant with interesting decor and a limited menu. Our meals (special lamb pasta dinner, charcuterie plate, salad) were all excellent. So... perhaps limited selection but good selections.) I would definitely go back.

Amazing and friendly service, Ian was lovely! All of our food was amazing, especially the charcuterie/cheeses and the Devils on Horseback. Our wine was exactly what we were looking for, I think it was the special of the day, and the vibe was relaxed, warm, and welcoming. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

I hadn’t been to Peter Pan since I immigrated to
Toronto in 1975. Back then, it was THE burger and shake place to go and I loved it.
Well, it’s gone quite up scale since then but I loved it when I was there for lunch last week. I had a great brussel sprouts Caesar salad and tried their famous popcorn. Both dishes were new to me. I’ve had Caesars many times but never a brussel sprouts one and the popcorn was definitely unusual and delicious. Lunch was finished off with fresh, madeleines, right from the oven. I left quite satisfied as the portion size for my meal was perfect.
Staff were friendly and service was great. The ambiance is also lovely. My one suggestion is that the booth space is a bit tight but I’d sit there again because the restaurant is worth it.

I loved it. Our service was fantastic. We had some options off of the winterlicious menu and they were very good. The wine selection is amazing, and Wednesday night makes them exceptionally good deals. I have already booked again, and would certainly recommend it to a friend.

We reserved for winterlicious but apparently the restaurant does not serve the wintelicious menu during weekend brunch so that was a disappointment.

Thank goodness we made a reservation for Sunday morning or else we would’ve never gotten a table for brunch! This place has a line out the door for a reason! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is beautiful and the wait staff are all extremely friendly and personable! The brunch menu has lots of delicious options, including vegetarian for my friend! The wait times were not long despite it being busy. Overall, really enjoyed my meal!

Our server was quite attentive and very personable, no complaints there.

The Waldorf salad was ridiculously overpriced; I'm a seasoned cook and make a lot of salads and I know that the ingredients in the salad presented to us probably cost about $3, max. Very disappointing. And the coffee we ordered after dinner was disappointingly tepid in temperature.

Beautiful setting and ambient lighting. I’ve been to Peter Pan before and understand it can be pricey for its portions. However, this year portion sizes were so small we sent back the cheese board. I’m not expecting a block of cheese to be served, however, 3 bite sized pieces were placed meagrely on the board for 4 people. Honestly I’ve seen larger samples given out at Costco. Servers tried to make up for it by giving out slightly larger peices and and an extra charcuterie board. Servers were unfriendly even before the food was sent back. I won’t be coming back as there is so much more to choose from in the area.
