European
The Bier Markt first opened its doors in Toronto in 1999 and has grown to 8 unique restaurants in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. 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 The Bier Markt.

    We waited 45 min for our food. We missed the beginning of our event because of the wait. When I asked for an update on the food, I was told that it’s busy. The restaurant is full. Not a way to speak to customers.

    Went on Saturday, September 24 and it was a busy night in the city with both the Leafs playing as well as the Just For Laughs festival. The restaurant was buzzing but my party was seated promptly as per our reservations. Our server was professional, prompt and very attentive. Our drinks and food orders were the same. Prompt, exactly what we ordered, hot, tasty and fresh. Great service, great food and reasonable pricing. Loved my experience and I would definitely come back again.

    I loved the Bier Markt because I could get the Belgian ales I could get there but nowhere else. But the selection has really been reduced. I miss the selection tha was possible pre Covid.

    I have to say it makes me sad writing this review. The food was horrible and disgusting. It was not even edible. Our server was also the bartender and he was the best part of the night so thanks Ben!!! The fact that we had to pay for any portion of the food that wasn’t even touched was a little insane but it is what it is. With so many options on that strip I would definitely go somewhere else. If you are looking for food do not go here

    I wrote a review already but I split chicken nachos with my sister. Chicken was burnt and not worth it. Couldn't ear it. The server wanted to settle up at 430 as she was leaving (got there at 330) but never told the bartender we were added to his tables. So we waited for more drinks for quite some time. Not worth the cost.

    The food was terrible but the beer was great. For that reason I’m going with an average rating of 3/5 stars. But there is not enough to draw me back to this restaurant as there are so many better places to dine in the city. Too bad because I was entertaining four guests from the UK. The poor quality of food Didn’t leave them with a very good impression.

    The food was pretty good, we had the cauliflower bites (8/10), tuna bowl (8/10), vegetarian pizza (9/10). Dessert was just okay - cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding. However, the portions were fairly small considering the prices. Overall, we had a good experience, but don't expect to walk away with any left overs.

    We left the restaurant after being sat in the bar with a child and the restaurant had no air conditioning in a heat wave, the door was open and we were told they couldn't close the door. We were also told that a server would be by "in a bit". We left before enduring another outing of poor service

    It seems staff are new and being trained. Our patio table was wobbly and I was working on fixing it and the server just stood there. When the server brought our beer she spilt some on the table and did not wipe it up. It was just left as a puddle on the table. Not a big deal in the big picture but easy training things that can be fixed.

    The service out on the patio was very poor. Waited 10 minutes for drinks, wasn’t periodically checked in on for re ordering drinks. We ordered 3 apps, the 1st app came out first and then maybe 15 minutes the other 2 apps, cold, came out. Food was average and definitely not up to par with their prices.

    Great location that checks all boxes: Great food, great service, decent value (a little pricey but quality of food and service make up for it). Walking distance to and from all the primary places of interest for folks visiting Toronto wanting to get a Jays game in, catch a concert at Budweiser Stage, visit Ripley’s Aquarium or see the CN Tower, all accessible by short walk right from Union Station. The Bier Markt on The Esplanade is a great place for anyone who wants a good beer with good food, before or after a day of doing all the fun stuff there is to do in Toronto.

    Overall, everything was excellent. Service was great for the most part, only reason I gave it 3 was because it took forever between getting our drinks and the server taking our order (and it wasn’t very busy yet - early on a Thursday, about 5pm). Then we ordered an appetizer - pretzels, nothing complicated. Finally came at the exact same time as our dinner (burgers). The food itself was very good, server was friendly, overall experience was good. Would go back!

    Nice to have a place that will take a reservation on game nights!! Too many will just leave you outside wondering if you're going to get in, or have to buy a 10 dollar cold hotdog in the arena.

    I am sad to write that my family and I had an absolutely horrendous experience here on the weekend. It wasn’t busy at all, yet we had atrocious service. We had to ask for a refill 4x, if took forever to order, the food when we got it was redeemable for some and sub par for most. But the service was by far the biggest issue. Still in disbelief. Will not be back.

    Go there before Leafs games on a regular basis but last night was disappointing. Had to go to my fifth choice of beers off the menu before they had one in stock, this is the Bier Market! Then to top it off my first choice for dinner was out of stock. I would have left had it not been for the fact all the places in the neighbourhood were booked prior to the game.

    The beer dunked duck wings were very chewy and seemed overcooked but good flavour. Cappuccino was not really hot but I like it that way so worked for us.
