Steak
Just a few steps from the hustle and bustle of Yonge and Bloor, Bumpkin’s has been a local landmark since 1971, serving the very best in French continental cuisine with an old world Parisian feel. The newly updated two-story Victorian house has a handsomely sophisticated interior, featuring two fireplaces and a set of crystal chandeliers, that once graced the interior of the Royal York Hotel, and beautiful pieces of art throughout the restaurant.

During the spring and summer months, Bumpkins offers an outdoor dining experience on their terrace, complete with a view of Norman Jewison parkette. Distinct to the menu is a selection of masterfully conceived dishes ranging from the baked garlic butter escargot bourguignon to veal chop with mushrooms to the steamed fresh P.E.I mussels. All of the fine fair can be accompanied by a selection from the extensive cocktails and wine list.

    This was our choice for Christmas dinner as the menu looked appealing and not too tough on the wallet. Bumpkin’s is a little cottage nestled amongst towering buildings like a diamond in the rough (the neighborhood is decidedly inner city with the expected sights). Inside though is a different world. The greeting was warm and all of the servers were equally warm and pleasant. The food was delicious and the wait short. Overall, we enjoyed it and our chat with the host. Bottom line: We would go again.

    Charming restaurant with traditional and professional standards of service. The food was very good and the choice of wines and cocktails was perfect. We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner and were very happy with our experience. If we visit Toronto again then we will certainly visit Bumpkin's.

    Terrible, bland food. Arrogant waiter. This place looks like something from 1975. They do hand written checks. The bread was good. It was quiet. No one was there fir obvious reasons. I wouldn’t go back…

    Nice people, great service, and If you’re looking for food from a suburban mainstream 1970s cookbook, this is the place for you. As for ambience, it is comfortable but not intimate, and getting the most out of a 1990s reno. Straight up, it’s expensive.. If I am spending this kind of money, Toronto offers a wide range of incredible restaurants. The service was friendly and timely.

    the restaurant was very very quiet. food looks like it’s from cafeteria, the steak that we paid 60 bucks for was the worst steak that my wife ever had. I would say that they need to work on their menu late representation and food quality as both don’t equal to the price that we paid. For spending half the money we would have better experience at Keg, but unfortunately that date all kegs were full for the time that we wanted. Also large menu and options is not always a good choice. Boiled vegetables from the frozen is not something you expect when a dish cost you $40-60, or boiled fried potatoes. I did enjoy the bread, butter and the potatoes, but we did not pay for Denny’s level food. Wish this place all the best and to change for the best. Will never go again, unless something major will change there.

    We were expecting great food and received a greasy steak with frozen vegetables. The carpet smelled funky and we were the only ones there. I’m not sure what Howie Mandel saw in this place but perhaps it was different times. Besides the sweet old man (I think the owner) who sat us down, we felt it was a bit of a rip off. We understand this might not be what he wants to hear but we want to be honest in the hopes it leads to improvements. The reviews and menu were misleading
