    Open table reservation - identified ourselves on arrival Awesome Servers Food arrived cold; sent it back; came back hot Spartan ambiance - fun, casual place Claimed we were a “no show” on Open Table resulting in Open Table notification; not impressed with hassle and having to prove presence Cold food + hassle = improvement needed

    Steam Whistle BiergärtenResponded on September 13, 2022Hi there, we are very sorry for the inconvenience with the Open Table issue and are truly sorry for the food arriving cold. Would you be willing to send me an email at amyw@steamwhistle.ca as I would love to make it up to you and host you back for the true Steam Whistle experience. Apologies again!

    Service was great. I had the blood orange shandy which was delicious. We had three shareable items, the meat and cheese board, croquettes and a sausage. The croquettes and sausage were great, the meat and cheese board was okay, was expecting a bit more. Overall great experience after the jays game.

    Great atmosphere, patio was very nice in the summer. Food was excellent and why would you be here if not for the beer?? I recommend getting the beer stein. Would also recommend the Mexican street corn - it was really good. Wish the service was a bit better; the server could have been a bit more attentive. Would come back again.

    Dined here before the Lady Gaga concert. Many people did not make reservations and did not get in, so I’m very happy to have made a reservation ahead of time! I was also very happy to be seated indoors as it was extremely hot outside. My friend and I dined together and shared the original soft pretzel appetizer which was delicious! I would highly recommend that. I also love steam whistle beer so I was happy to have a pint of that. We both ordered the Roundhouse burger, which was a little bit charred. But everything came out very quickly. The fries with the burger were delicious. And our service was good. Will definitely return!

    Steam Whistle BiergärtenResponded on August 22, 2022Hi Kate, thanks so much for leaving such a detailed review. We appreciate all the feedback & have noted the burgers being charred so that we can continue to improve our customers experience. Very happy to hear you had a great time at the Biergarten and we hope to see you back again soon.

    Had a casual business lunch on the outdoor patio. Our waiter was friendly and energetic. Beers and drinks were cold and refreshing. The pubby biergarten food was all tasty: we enjoyed the hot bready pretzels and house-made sausages in particular! We will return for sure and would recommend. Only constructive comment: the host/hostess station out front seemed to be staffed by one person who constantly disappeared inside in search of tables for guests. As a party with a reservation, it felt like we were kept waiting for a few minutes longer than necessary, for the host to return. It was a lovely day outside so we didn't really mind. Hopefully, as we put the pandemic behind us, the host/hostess stand will be staffed with 2+ people for slightly faster seating service. Otherwise: thank you for the fun & yummy lunch!

    Steam Whistle BiergärtenResponded on August 22, 2022Hi Susan, we're so happy to hear you had a great experience at the Biergarten.

    Food and beer were good enough. Cidre was not for the people that like natural products and ingridients. Ontario has a lot of breweries that produce natural cidre from only apples and sulfates, for some reason Steam Whistle serves Cidres combine with sugar or stevia in it. Other than that, the umbrellas outside are really small and cannot cover you from the burning sun, that fact makes seating on the terrace not really comfortable.

    Steam Whistle BiergärtenResponded on August 16, 2022Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback so that we can continue to improve our customer experience. Our cider is made locally, and yes two of their products do include stevia as they are a different style of cider. Their original cider is 100% Ontario apples but you may have had the Lime Crush or Cold Tea. We will work to improve the shaded areas on the patio to make it more comfortable, we know how important that is in the summer! Thank you again & we hope to see you back soon.

    Honestly, this was not a great experience. We were most looking forward to Steam Whistle but were very disappointed. The shandies were good but that was pretty much it. Our table was in a high traffic area by the washrooms, the server forgot some orders, a number of items were unavailable, and no one could hear each other talk because it was so loud. This place has so much potential but doesn't meet expectations.

    This has to be one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. Food was amazing, our server was energetic and welcoming. She treated us like we were actual people and not just npc’s. we wanted drinks that weren’t on the menu (screwdriver & vodka sprite) and she had no problem putting our order in. Service is super quick but plan on staying here for a minimum of an hour and a half cause you will want to. The garden makes everything feel open while you have a bunch of old train cars around you to let you know that you’re eating at a historical place in Toronto. The restaurant was also away from any streets so you won’t have to worry about honking to smelling fumes from cars. I 100% will be coming back every chance I get in the summer. Amazing work guys!!!
