Always a wonderful experience at Steam Whistle. We ate all the vegetarian stuff (salad, Brussels sprouts, root veggies, spatzle) on the menu and it was all fantastic. Also had one meat item, the turkey leg. My one critique would be that the menu indicates that the items could be adapted to be made into vegan or vegetarian meals but this doesn’t really seem to be the case. Anyway, I loved my experience and cannot wait to go back. P.S. Keep the turkey leg around or bring it back sometime. It was great.
Always a great experience! Go here! You won’t regret it!
Must try the fish and chips. Not sure how they make the fries but not needing ketchup and they were great.
Very nice staff and the food was excellent.
Perfect pre-game spot for a Jays game. Food was excellent and beer great (as always). Great to see this spot now here and will be a regular as a Jay season ticket holder. Great job!
We have been to Steam Whistle Biergarten twice within a couple of weeks. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was really good.
The food was very good, I wish the servings were a bit larger, it was a little bit pricey (not by a lot though) for the amount of food I received but I'd still go again.
The atmosphere in the Biergarten was so fun! It felt very different to most other restaurants and all staff were so kind as well. We also loved the food- the pretzel and beer cheese specifically were out of this world!
Hi Courtney, So happy to hear you enjoyed your experience at the Biergärten! We'd love to host you again soon for more delicious pretzels (and beer)! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Hard to rate the food as I only ordered the pretzel. Staff should be more aware of cleaning dirty dishes/glasses up. We sat in the ‘help yourself’ section, was not aware of that as we made reservations and wanted to sit outside. For those prices, which are the same as most downtown patios, we should be served. We planned on eating but with the self serve, we went elsewhere. The music was great.
Hi Kelly, I'm sorry to hear you did not have an exceptional experience at the Biergärten during your visit. If you could share more about your experience I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to learn more so we can fix it! If not, let me know when you're down next and I'd be happy to give you a beer on us. Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
What a great concept and a great place. The food was amazing, the staff were great. Place is brand new and clean. Even my picky eater daughter loved it.
Hi Allan, So happy you (and your picky eater daughter) enjoyed your experience at the Biergärten! We hope to host you and your family again soon. Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Incredible service, lots of fun, was my there for a birthday, so the first round was on the house! Our server was very helpful and fun, she made our experience awesome! Prices were pretty high, and even with my discount it was still pretty expensive, but overall worth it! I'll definitely be coming back soon
Hi there, Thanks so much for the kind words! We're so happy you decided to spend your birthday with us. I have passed on your note to Eleanor as well, so thank you for that. We hope to see you back for more steins soon! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
The food was great!!! We had the fish and chips as well as the salad with chicken. Generous portion and reasonable prices. Great value! The staff was very friendly. We will definitely be back.
Hey Carol, thanks for the great review. Very happy you had a good time and you enjoyed the food!
Food was great and was nice to find a litre Stein in Toronto after having just returned from Munich. Service was quite slow for food and prices are a bit high, but it is in a dense tourist area. It’s a bit of a clunky experience, having to order and pay for food and drink separately. Overall, quite good!
Great location and concept is pretty close to a real German Biergarten. A few improvements, specifically that the children's meals portions need to be far more equal. The Spätzle was a very tiny portion and the chicken schnitzel was much larger. Our 10 year old, who is a pretty small eater, was still hungry so we had to purchase more for her and her meal ended up being pretty expensive. Also, some of the foods are pretty oily by nature, so I ended up eating portions of the cute little tray liners because they got wet and mushy. The pork hock (Schweinshaxe), was the best we've had since living in Germany. A few tweaks and this place will be an real gem. DANKESCHÖN
It is a bit loud because the space is super small. The food had to be ordered separately from the drinks. It felt like a small pop up place.
Steam Whistle Biergarten is a great place to go to have a few drinks, and enjoy delicious German food! Food Dudes and Steam Whistle is such a great Toronto partnership, and the Biergarten is definitely a place I will be going back to again and again!
Thanks for the great review! Have a great week.
Warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere! The staff were incredibly helpful, always smiling, and informative when we asked a couple questions. The food was outstanding, creative and authentic, and of course the drinks were crisp and refreshing! Can't wait to go back!
Really enjoyed our meal and drinks here. Beer was good, including a couple of beers we haven't tried before (the Munich lager and a Belgian styled one). Food was better than we expected, presented nicely and satisfying. Service was friendly and efficient.
Hi Michael, Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant! So glad to hear that you had a great experience. Come back soon... We have another new beer for you to try. Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Loved all the new beer options, like the Shandy and Radler. Great little spot.
Hi Zach, So glad you enjoyed our fresh tasting take on a classic! Come back soon for some more... Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Great place! The food was very tasty and varied. Surprising for a beer garden. It's an awesome historic spot. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and laid back environment. Go here.
Thanks for coming by and for the review! Much appreciated.
Great food and a unique ambiance. Benches made things a little cozy, but the food and atmosphere made up for it. PS if ordering the Hock it can feed a couple of people with the amount of meat you get! You'd likely want extra sides should you intend to share (well worth it though).
I went to Steamwhistle Biergarden for the first time with my family to celebrate Father’s Day. We all split the pretzel and fries and enjoyed it so much that we couldn’t wait for what the main dishes had in store for us. I had the currywurst and really enjoyed it (though I should have asked for more curry sauce on the side). I tried my family’s meals too, the massive fish and chips and my favourite meal there: schnitzel. All this was topped off with refreshing beer. Thanks for the amazing experience! I will definitely return!
Hi Giori, So glad you decided to join us for Father's Day, and that you enjoyed your visit! The schnitzel is one of my favourites too... Come back soon! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
What a great spot next to the CN tower! Lots of awesome food to choose from, great beer and incredible service. I will certainly be coming back soon with more friends for more steins!
Hi Robbie, Bring those friends by! We've got steins by the handfuls... Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Atmosphere was very laid back but fun, food was good but quite expensive for what it is. Staff are friendly and overall it was a nice experience.
What a great place to watch the Raptors Final - Game 5!
Hi there, We're so glad you enjoyed your visit with us, and that you enjoyed the great atmosphere for the Raptors Game! Crazy to think we won the championship... 'Til next season! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
The staff went above and beyond to make sure it was a great experience. Everyone was willing to help and provide recommendations. Also the kitchen is run by Food Dudes ....amazing food as always. Highly recommend!
Hi there, We're so glad you enjoyed your visit with us, and that you enjoyed the food. We're so proud to be partnered with Food Dudes - they always hit the mark! 'Til next time! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Delicious food. Great beer! German fries are a must! Highly recommend!
Hi there! So glad you enjoyed the fries and beer... Which one was your favourite? Come again soon! Prost, Robyn FOH Manager
The food was amazing! Our group of 5 shared almost every appetizer and then a few mains (too much!). The pork hock is too die for. Wish there was more beer selection, still only 4 but better than the usual single one available at Steamwhistle. definitely worth checking out!
Hi Vanessa, Isn't that pork hock everything and more? So happy you enjoyed your visit with us! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Great first visit to the Garten. I actually wish it was a bit bigger (more tables) so more people can enjoy.
The food came out quickly and was delicious.
Hi there, We wish it was bigger too! Who knows what can happen next... Stay tuned! Glad you enjoyed your food and we can't wait to host you again soon! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
I went with my partner for a Saturday lunch. It was busy but the communal seating was actually very enjoyable. The staff were upbeat and we got talking to the couple next to us for a good hour. The wings were amazingly delicious with a small but appropriate serving size for an appetizer. The sausages were also incredible and the beer too of course. I look forward to going again the next time I'm in town.
Hi Elizabeth, It makes us very happy to hear that you got to know your table-mates; that's what a traditional Biergärten is all about after all! We can't wait for your return visit (hopefully soon!). Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
In the reservation request there is an option for outdoor seating but this was not available when we arrived. The place is great inside. Great food and beer. For the prices I would like my order to be taken at the table instead of having to place order at counter and then food brought to you. I will be back!
Hi Lucy, I do apologize for the miscommunication on our part about our outdoor seating. We will have a patio coming in the next couple of weeks, but OpenTable's settings had not been updated when you made your reservation with us. I am very glad to hear that you did enjoy your experience inside with us - and I hope we can properly host you on our patio soon. Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
It's a true German style beer garden right across from the Blue Jays stadium, which is great! Go up to the counter to order your food and get a number for service. I found everything to be a bit salty, which is my only food complaint. Ordered a pretzel, brat, fish and chips and cheese spatzle. Table service for beers was great. So nice to be able to make a res before the game. Will come back!
Hi Erin, So happy that you enjoyed your experience at our brand new biergärten! We look forward to hosting you again for a pregame beer and sausage. Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Great food with awesome drinks/service. Would definitely recommend and revisit again!
Hi Samantha, Makes me really happy to know that you had a blast at our new biergärten. We look forward to your next visit! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Beer was great and so was the food. But, it took over 25mins to receive two orders of fish and chips.
Food and beer were great. My only small comment would be that if you're put at the end of a table when it's busy, people don't leave you much room and you're stuck straddling a metal bar which is a bit awkward. Overall good experience!
Hi there, Glad you enjoyed the food and beer! We are currently working on a solution for yourself and patrons with similar issues to make sure that no one is stuck straddling a metal bar again. Thanks for your feedback! We look forward to hosting you again! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Cool spot. 16 dollars for a sausage is absurd.
A fun and different venue to meet with friends; not the place for in-depth conversation but that's okay.
Hi Lola, Glad you enjoyed your night! Our biergärten can definitely get a little noisy at times, I do apologize for that, but hope you could still hear your neighbour okay! Come back soon! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Expected an outdoor seating space based on the reservation options
Obviously great beer ..... and delicious food to go with it. I was blown away by how good the food was. The wings are highly recommended!!
Hi Rich, Thanks so much for the kind words! Those wings have been very popular so I'm so glad you enjoyed them. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Prost! Robyn FOH Manager
Great service and vibe. The food was great. We had the pretzel, chicken schnitzel, german fries and the mac and cheese. All delicious.
