This atmospheric restaurant, in a timeless two-storey Victorian house with a year-round back patio, was conceived by restaurant industry veteran Nicki Laborie.

Bar Reyna was designed as an energetic gathering place where the vibe, food and drinks intermix to create a wholly unique restaurant experience. Our menu features an eclectic mix of table snacks and larger plates that traverse the Mediterranean.

Bar Reyna is available for private dining events. Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are welcome.

Service was a tad slow at the beginning and with the strict closing at 10:00 p.m. it was slightly frustrating to not get our first drinks until 8:30 p.m. with an 8:00 p.m. reservation (we were also seated late), BUT we know they were slammed and doing their best. Just a bit of feedback. The food was amazing - Lebanese chicken tacos absolutely delicious, octopus the most tender I've ever tasted, and awesome falafel bites. The matchstick fries were a bit too crisp. Otherwise most beautiful patio in Toronto and we will be back!

Perfect spot for a date, low key, warm, cozy and inviting. The food is spectacular and reasonably priced (the lamb baklava is a must try). The cocktail menu is impressive and inspired, not cheap but you get what you pay for, and the service has always been impressive to boot. 10/10 have and will continue to recommend Bar Reyna!

Chicken tacos were delicious and ambiance is really nice but all the other food items we order was mediocre and not worth the value.

First time there - date night with my wife. The back patio setting was great, food was tasty and service was friendly and efficient - until the last dish.

Being a tapas restaurant, we ordered 2-3 dishes at a time, not sure how big they would be. Our first 2 rounds of orders were well timed and we were never without something in front of us.

On our 3rd order, it took 1/2 hour for the dishes to arrive. The waiter did sheepishly apologize, but it killed our desire to order more.

The food and setting was good enough that I would recommend it and return for another try, but they do need to work on their pacing if they want to maintain that tapas vibe.

Love this restaurant. Food is excellent and it’s soooo pretty, love the patio. Only thing I don’t like is how dim it is, and there’s only one candle at a table for 6. It’s soooo dim and then they turn down the lights even more. I’m not even old, I’m a young person and I think the lighting is way too dim. Otherwise I loveeee this place! Lots of vegetarian options for my friends and the outdoor part is still covered so you don’t feel the cold or the wind but can still see the sky!

The back patio at Bar Reyna is amazing. Super cute and cozy. The heaters are EVERYTHING. We sat at the far back corner which was super quiet and relatively private. This spot is nice for a date but also a good spot to take your mom or your grandma for cocktails.

The food here is excellent. We had the feta fries and the calamari to start.

Given the reviews for this restaurant I was expecting something outstanding but it was a letdown. The food taste was mediocre, it was just fried white bread with some frozen smoked salmon with a badly dressed salad that was improperly plated around the sandwich so that it was impossible to not spill the salad all over the table. The salad tasted like eating a bunch of onions - it had no other taste and the dressing was awful. It seems like it was phoned in and was disappointing, especially for the high price charged.

I really like Bar Reyna however I couldn’t relax and enjoy it today as the staff wore masks that aren’t Protective enough. I get that it is nice to have comfortable masks but I won’t go back until Covid is “over” or they get masks that are more. Compliant with Toronto Health Guidelines.

This place never seizes to amaze me. Everything was made with such wonderful attention to details, delicious, flavourful, and unique. Above all is their treatment of the guests, I felt like I was surrounded by friends.

This place is really nice! The food portions were larger than expected, and for Yorkville I think the value of this place is fantastic. The secret patio is so adorable and instagrammable. It’s a really nice place for any type of occasion!

We were celebrating our two-year wedding anniversary by having a staycation in the heart of Toronto. We made a reservation for lunch at Bar Reyna and was seated on the beautiful patio located at the back of the restaurant. It was absolutely beautiful, and the food was delicious!

Upon arriving for our reservation, we had to wait for our table. Once the table was ready at the back patio (as requested) we were given a horrible seat in a dark abandoned corner besides a utility door. The seating was awkward because I was much lower on the sofa side, compared to my husband on his seat.. we tried switching seats and it was still really weird. I wanted to surprise my man for his 30th and this place was a big disappointment.. also, the clear plastic visor over the servers and employees mouths, rests on their chin and is open upwards. The moisture from their mouths is just going up and outwards, it’s absolutely useless for them to wear it. Never going back.

Had a nice experience with my girlfriends. The atmosphere is nice, and although you are in one of the loudest neighbourhoods, the back patio is really nice. We enjoyed our conversations. The food was great. The portions definitely worth their values. Thank you

I really enjoyed the food, meals were timely and tasted wonderful. Service was great! We never had any trouble ordering. Only concern is with the face shield, since I didn’t feel it is protective enough for the servers. But otherwise, would come back again!
