First mistake - Going to a restaurant where patrons are all well-heeled regulars, or well-heeled regular wannabe's. As newcomers we felt very out of place. Service was cool, while lots of attention was paid to most other tables. Second mistake - Ordering "fresh fish of...More

Best steak I have had in Ontario. Great service, great steak, great ambiance. You pay for these services but they are well worth it.

Perfection from walking in to walking out! Staff amazing. Service top dollar. Probably the best steak we have ever had! Try the Monte Christo coffee after dinner, and the restrooms .... wow!! Worth every penny. Wish we lived in Toronto so we could enjoy again....More

Finally got a chance to check out Barberians and it did not dissapoint. Amazing old school atmosphere, friendly staff, and the best steak I've had in years. The sear on the meat was incredible! Definitely ccoming back and bringing friends.

Bonnie & Clyde never robbed like this. The food was disgraceful, the prices extremely high for meat that is way below Ponderosa standards. DO NOT WASTE YOUR PALATE, MONEY or TIME on a has been restaurant.

This was a recommendation from our hotel. It was beyond our exception. Our waiter was great and the food was spectacular. They even gave a bottle of their steak seasoning to take home. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Toronto.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

As said, no dress code, but it is an upper class restaurant so dress pants would be preferable.
