Ferro Bar & Cafe
Birthday. The food and service was excellent and we had a lovely time.
My favored restaurant over the past 25 years. Great food, good service, reasonable prices, energetic atmosphere.
I have been here quite a few times in the past as I live in the area, but not in the past 6 months. I took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner this time and made a note in my open table reservation. Most times I’ve went have been a decent experience overall. This time, however, I’m not sure if they were understaffed or just had new people in the kitchen.. but our food took over an hour after we ordered and there was only one other table in the restaurant when we came and one person at the bar. The mushroom crostini appetizer was good, but our entrees were terrible for the most part. When I asked to have my food packed up, they packed it up, but only the meat and no idea what happened to the remainder of my food. (There was quite a bit) - maybe threw it out? Who knows. The waiter was friendly, but seemed unorganized and didn’t come to ask us if we would like more drinks when ours were gone and didn’t ask if we would like the bill for quite a while after our food was already packed up- had to flag him down. I also saw other tables who came in after us looking around and wondering when he was going to take their order. (I will say he was the only waiter working though) The waiter assistants who refilled waters and helped out here and there were nice. Ambiance is nice. Two stars- only because the ambiance and some of the staff were friendly. Probably won’t go back.
Service was great. Food was deliscious. My husband loved the spaghetti alla marinara considering he is a very picky eater, can’t take him just to any restaurant. The mushrooms were great! Cozy ambiance.
Food was excellent but the service was disorganized as there were too many individuals bringing food not knowing who got what, no offer or pepper or cheese, forgetting drinks. Room was fun and amour group had fun. Les support staff and more experienced
We had a great evening , service was very attentive and friendly. It was a girls night that didn’t disappoint. Great pasta and pizza and the major mushrooms are too die for.
Staff was very friendly. Sophie was a great host. Food was very well done. Huge portions. Overall the setting was very cozy and comfortable. Great place for a private function.
I took my family to Ferro for their first time/my belated birthday dinner. Out main server was very professional and patient while we chatted and perused the menu. There was a little bit of overlap in service but better to be thorough than remiss, I say. The only snag was that it seems a door was left open for some time toward the end of our meal and some of us caught the draft. Overall we had a fantastic experience and will definitely be back again soon and often.
Ferro Bar has long been a favorite spot for us whenever we visit Toronto. The staff are amazing and we love the food and ambiance. One of the BEST Italian restaurants out there anywhere. The handcrafted cocktails are awesome and the Magic Mushrooms are a must. Incredible!
Everything was great. Came to celebrate a few things with the parents and the food and service did not disappoint. We will be back!
We started our new year’s Eve here before going out. We split a pizza and a pasta and both were delicious!! Place was loud, but it was busy and felt festive. Great service.
Our first time. We loved everything we tried. We must go back and try other dishes.
Loved the food and setting - we will definitely be back again !!
We had a great time. Only complaint was that the music was too loud and it was hard to converse. The food and everything else was great.
We went to Ferro with a large group to celebrate a birthday. The food and service were both excellent. We will definitely be back!
Food is delicious and always consistent. Great vibe
Very enjoyable, would definitely go again. Food and service were both good
Food as always was very good and consistent. We have been eating here for years.
However the waitress wasn't that attentive but the bus/helper was very ary on top of things I personally the positions should be switched. Didn't get the guys name but he was tall and black, I even personally told him that he was very attentive.
Does this stop me from going back never.
Food is always outstanding. Service is attentive and friendly.
Family Birthday. Candles in the chocolate cake and tiramisu! Great! Thank you !
The server was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Definitely will be back.
We had a wonderful time at Ferro celebrating my birthday! Food was delicious as always, our server was fantastic and they made the occasion extra special for us.
Went here for a birthday, overall solid food in a good location but nothing special. Thought the service could have been better, they totally forgot about the birthday girls meal and did not seem to feel very bad.
Love this place! We wish they had opened up seating in the back for lunch. It was cramped for a group of six in the front area.
I love Ferro! Bring everyone here that I know!!
maybe an off night, but i have been a huge ferro lover for years and years. Friday evening i found everything about it to be poor. And i brought a table of 8 to the restaurant. So disappointed beginning with the server. Food was tasteless that night. Had to send back stuff. Though magic mushrooms have always been fabulous.
Had an upcoming reservation that I had to cancel because I had such a poor experience friday evening.
Wish the waiters and waitresses would crack a smile...
How disappointing after loving this place for so many years.
Amazing food and service!
We really enjoyed the pizza and pasta dishes - flavors were fantastic. Will be back!
Great food and service. Always consistent. My favourite Italian restaurant.
Great for everyday Dining or for a special event. Excellent good. Good value except for liquor which is over priced compared to food. Great evening great service. Well worth coming back. Great decor great vibe
Everything was amazing as per usual.. our favourite restaurant and food and staff... thankyou thankyou thankyou 😊
The food was amazing -- highly recommend the pasta. Unfortunately, our dessert orders were forgotten and my take-out was mislaid for about an hour, but otherwise it was a great experience. (And they did comp the desserts, which was appreciated!) Have eaten there before with no issues, so maybe it was just an off night. Either way, the delicious dishes made it worth it! Would recommend and return.
Food was decent. Although we felt like we were rushed out at the end. We were still eating/drinking and suddenly servers kept trying to pack up our food that we hadn't finished yet. Music was a bit loud. Servers missed a few people's meals or offering peppers/cheese, etc.
The food was delicious... and the service was great!!
I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy Italian cuisine their pizza is excellent and we also enjoy their seafood pasta!
Good food and generous portions. Service was not super attentive, but I have a sense that they may have just been short staffed that day.
Excellent service and food. We had a mini engagement dinner here and the staff was super attentive and fantastic. Also the food was incredible! The eggplant parmigiana was super good and the wodfire pizzas are excellent.
Amazing food! Although it was New Year’s Eve, we did not feel rushed. Service was great. Will return!
Must order magic mushrooms. They’re life changing! Our waitress was amazing also! Can’t wait to go back again and again and again!
Cousin and I went for lunch just before Christmas. The interior was very inviting and warm looking. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful. We had magic mushrooms, gnocci (sp?) and zupa di pesci. All excellent along with complimentary bread and olive oil, parmesan, balsamc dip. I had a glass of Proscecco. We sat near the door with only a thin wall between us and the area next door which is under construction. Power saws made a horrific noise and construction guys walked through noisily yelling out to each other. Definitely very off putting. Final opinion? Food excellent! Ambiance sucked eggs big time.
Great Food. Great service. The atmosphere is friendly and the food is tasty. Attention to detail is not a second thought. Price is fantastic too!
