I had read some reviews about "The Barbarian" and having been in Seoul for some 2 1/2 months, I was looking for a good steak. This did not disappoint. I walked in on a Friday evening and was immediately accommodated. The staff were excellent and attentive. This is a cozy place and exactly what I was looking for. I had... More

We went to Barberians as part of my Bachelor party on a Saturday evening. We had the private Library dining room upstairs with a connected patio. Luckily, for a Toronto February, it was well above freezing so we could use the patio for drinks and freah air. As a group we had amazing oysters, pate, and smoked salmon starters. Then... More

Cold welcome at the entrance doesn't help to feel comfortable! A very common food. Even the steak was average. Quality of the product is ok. But it is sad to discover a Porterhouse in your plate over cooked and without any taste. Perhaps the chef do not think the seasoning is important.

Best steaks ever & grilled to perfection. Service was excellent. $ men, 4 steaks, 4 appetizers and 2 side orders plus 1 $155 bottle of vino came to $485 with tax. Largest wine list ever!

Referred by concierge from the Sheraton, major disappointment. Atmosphere was very good, upscale establishment. First thing the waiter had to tell us was one check per table, although he would split it and write the total down for us on the check... ok no big deal we could deal with that.... then the waiter informed us of the soup special,...

Let's start with the food... If you're a meat-eater, this place is for you. Some very nice cuts of meat grace their menu, but they also carry some fish and poultry. The food was delicious, and the service was bang on. Today, despite being the first customers, they ran out of clam chowder. Disappointing... Menu items are on the expensive... More

I really cannot recommend this restaurant. The steak is fairly mediocre in terms of quality or choice and it's not cheap. The service is pretty good though but not good enough to make me want to come back.

This is definitely an old style steakhouse. Atmosphere is old style as well; pretty dark, heavy dark colors, and definitely feels quite "lived-in". That said, the service was quite good. The food was a fairly high standard, but nothing exceptional. Both the Ceasar salad and the french onion soup were excellent and very familiar. Our group had a variety of... More

I had an excellent experience my first time dining at Barberian's. It used to be a restaurant my grandparents frequented, so we took them there for a 5:30 dinner. We were not disappointed. The service was attentive and the food was excellent! Mr. Aaron Barberian came over to chat with my family and even gave my mother and I a... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
