Fantastic food and drink! Lovely atmosphere too. Lots of space between customers.
The only suggestion is to train the waiters not to reach over top of people to fill water glasses or deliver drinks. Take the few extra steps to walk to the other side of the table, during a pandemic this should make your customers feel more comfortable:)
Wonderful to be back - they have great COVID protocols.
And the food was fabulous as always!
Food was excellent and the atmosphere was very warming - just a excellent night out - well worth it.
I always have an amazing experience at Biera. The menu always changes with new innovative dishes and the front of house staff always polite and laid back.
First time here as we were visiting from Calgary. All the beers were unique and flavourful and the food was outstanding. Our server was well knowledged and confident in describing all the beers and food. A beautiful space in the market. Look forward to coming back!
Biera has the tastiest food! I would go back just for the pistachio crema, but everything was amazing.
Not a good place for Vegans or Vegetarians. No options unless you want a salad.
Tasty and interesting food. Very attentive service. Good beer. Very local.
Great presentation, we enjoyed the squash and the ribs best.
I had a lovely first-time visit at Biera! The food, presentation and service was phenomenal. We enjoyed the atmosphere and pace of the evening. I would recommend Biera to friends and family in a heartbeat!
Wonderful service! Thank you to Zac and the rest of the team!
Server was good.
Food was incredible. This resto is such an asset to this city. Server was so knowledgeable. Great overall.
If I could give our server ten stars I would. I will return on that basis alone, although the beer, food, and ambiance are all on point.
Delicious food and wonderful service. Beautiful design and decor.
We love Biera - really a fantastic neighborhood spot. The vegetable dishes and desserts are absolutely outstanding - always interesting and delicious. Not sure why, but the meat dishes less so. So we will likely just order salads, veggies and desserts in future.
Excellent food, great Sharing Plates! Try the beer sampler, even if your not a beer drinker! Feels like your in another city for the evening.
The food was delicious. Our favorite was the beef tartare. The sourdough bread and cultured butter is also amazing. We will be back soon.
The menu is confusing, the wait staff don’t really explain the menu the best. We made a reservation and had to sit in the hallway in the market area, not even in the restaurant. Never even got to see inside the restaurant, our table and chairs were uncomfortable outdoor furniture. Mostly everything on the menu is individual. So if your thinking your gonna get a charcuterie board to enjoy with your wine, your sadly mistaken. You pick cheese, meat, crackers, condiments all separately and are all significantly priced individually. Weird style of menu. Beer flight was good.
They were out of a certain menu item so that was sad. Guess it really is that good.
I had a glass of wine which was super cranberry ish. Staff were all wonderful and accommodating.
I will be back
Food and service was fantastic. Zach was our server and his recommendations were spot on.
The scallop dish was incredible, as was the chicken with the charred and creamy cabbage. Highly recommended!!
Outstanding love everything- the food was exceptional and the beer was really interesting loved it! Highly recommended!!
We have enjoyed Biera in the past, so we were pretty eager to have a nice evening out at the restaurant. The service was good and the restaurant was nice. Our initial dishes were good and, as in the past, we were pleased with the innovative cooking. This is what we remembered best about Biera. On this occasion, my wife and I felt that, as we were presented with the various menu items we had ordered, there was a style that seemed, to us, to start to be all too much the same. Overall, I felt that each dish lacked 'dynamics' with respect the previous dish in the succession. Everything seemed to have a sour taste to it or pronounced heat. This is fine in individual dishes, but we felt that there should be more variety in the overall flavours, with respect to differences between successive dishes. I wished that a dish might have some sweetness to it, to maybe be a little less 'creative' and a little more basic, or to be perhaps savoury without falling into the basically all the same sourness/hot pepper style. This is just our opinion. We did enjoy it, but I would say we didn't enjoy it as much as in the past. I just think there's something to be said for not having to be clever all the time. A few of the items, maybe . . . but the creativity becomes a minus-factor if everything falls into the same 'creative' style.
The food was very good. Our waitress was super helpful and she did a great job.
Marcel was a great server. Very knowledgeable and charming! The food was all delicious as well. I would love to come back again.
Really good! We had the ribs (to die for flavours, very unique mix of flavours), the peach salad, and the sourdough. A perfect portion of food for the price. Really well put together menu too. I will return to try more menu items!
Everything was great. Biera has adapted very well to the current situation and as usual it was excellent. I admire their resilience!
We went here to check out the beers and get some snacks. The cheese is pricey, but good, and the drinks are lovely. I wish that they mentioned the cocktails they could make with Strathcona Spirits on the menu. It's a big room, and doesn't feel terribly cozy. This would be a good place for meeting friends, but is harder for an intimate date.
First time at Biera and we had an amazing experience. The staff was very knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations and the food was top notch!
The service was very friendly and informative (concerning the beer list and food menu). The imaginative and well-executed food and drinks were brought out quickly and were of excellent quality!
Had such a great time at biera. Awesome food. Even better beer. Will definitely come back! Great spot for a date night.
I have to say a huge thank you to the staff at Bier. My wife is having problems walking so she has to walk with a cane. It is difficult for her sometimes to sit at a booth or a bench. The staff had us sitting at a table with a bench originally but even without asking the changed us to a table with chairs. The staff are amazing, the food was incredible. Myself and my wife plan on returning to this establishment in the near future.
Thank you for the great night
Service was absolutely fantastic. Food was good, quite small portions but fresh and unique flavours. Will be back.
Excellent experience as usual! Menu continues to stay unique and is top quality!
Staff accommodated special needs and created an atmosphere that led to a wonderful evening.
We are very appreciative and had a lovely evening!
Really outstanding service. Food was interesting and delicious
Amazing food and incredibly helpful staff. One of my favorite restaurants.
Service "en français", original and beautifully presented locally sourced food! Délicieux!
Thank you Martine! Glad you enjoyed it. - Team BIERA
Everything was outstanding! The menu changes so often that I wish I could go in every week and taste the changes of the season! Boss team in the kitchen led by Chef Sandford 🤟🏽
Our family enjoyed every minute, especially the cheese varieties. We will definitely be back in the near future.
Wine and beer was divine.
Thank you for your comments Kathy! We're glad you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you again soon! - Team BIERA
