Everything was good, the setting was okay. Nothing was great. I’d come again, but it certainly isn’t the event of the day. Bear in mind, I came at 5:30pm on a Thursday. Maybe it’s nicer at other times. The waitress was nice, but didn’t feel she was very attentive to us.

Sitting outdoors on Yonge Street was noisy and a bit chilly.

The food was excellent and our waiter went above and beyond in assisting us.

My mother took me to Barnsteiner's for my birthday dinner. We were seated on the patio next to a young family with loud children, but the kind server immediately tuned into the situation and offered to move us. We hung in and the kids eventually settled down. Dinner was great - I had the tuna appetizer and the beet salad - both delicious. My mom had the braised beef and loved it. During dinner the server - Shaleena - went back and forth with the kitchen a few times regarding my gluten allergy making sure my meal was okay for me - which I really appreciated! And she remembered my gluten allergy when it came time for dessert and brought me a mango sorbet with a candle in it! Thank you Shaleena and Michelle for a great night out:)

I would definitely recommend Barnsteiner to others. The dishes were delicious and appetizing, while being perfectly culminated with flavors infused. The services was amazing, especially from our server Jamie who made the each point of the meal comedic and energetic with conversation. The atmosphere both inside and outside was great. As for pricing is would leave that to individual choice. If your having a date, a celebratory gathering, or just a casual evening meal I would definitely recommend Barnsteiners. Bon Appetit!

I've eaten at this restaurant before - I had a great experience with my husband. But last night I brought my disabled-mother and the service was terrible. They forgot our entree, had us waiting for 40 minutes, no one checked-in on us. After going inside and complaining, I had to take our meals to go because we just didn't want to be there anymore, I got a lousy "sorry there was a mix up in communication, we took the salad off your bill" apology. It's hard for me to not internalize yesterday's treatment as anti-black, given all other white guests were properly taken care of and support. Will not be returning.

Enjoyed a lunch very much at Barnsteiners yesterday. Food was very good but we only had a beet salad. I added blackened Haddock. Price was very reasonable. It is very noisy when you eat outside but nothing the restaurant itself can do about that. I think this is a great restaurant to go to in the Yonge and St. Clair neighborhood. Highly recommend it.

Enjoyable patio experience overall. The outdoor seating on the road is right beside traffic, so can be loud, FYI. We enjoyed the food and will want to come back for happy hour! The server was also very welcoming and friendly.

Restaurant advertises happy hour from 3 to 5 PM Monday to Friday however we have gone on 2 different occasions within the 3 to 5 and they did not have happy hour. they need to be clear whne they are not having happy hour as it is misleading advertising.

We had a wonderful dinner on the patio. Scallop dinner and braised rib dinner were both fabulous as was the tuna tartar. The asparagus soup was okay. Service was a little slow but our server was taking care of all 6 tables on the covered patio. She was super nice. We will definitely be back.
