Decided to try this out again and what a fail. Wings came burned to a crisp as if they had been lit in a fire. This used to be one of the best wings in Toronto. Now its probably the worst. What a shame.

Looking for great chicken wings and very nice French fries, look no further. Wonderful selection of basting, wonderful chicken wings and friendly service. Well worth the visit

I have always enjoyed visiting the Bistro over the years when I go to Toronto. I was surprised it had moved location but happy it was just down the road. The service was friendly and prompt but the wings were the real hit of the night, Exactly as I remembered hot, spicy and with the fabulous dipping sauce. I even... More

Don't ask for your wings well done, they will come burned to a dark crisp. Once again another place that originally was great as is going downhill fast. Service was not friendly.

Bistro has been cooking up the best wings in Toronto for a long time now. Crowned as the "original" st.louis, Bistro takes its wings seriously. The "hot" and "suicide" sauces are mouth watering. Tuesdays have become a weekly gathering for a group of us, as the restaurant offers half-price wings every week (along with most other wing places on this... More
