Casual
With a nod to its place in Toronto’s food history, the completely reestablished Peter Pan Bistro brings a contemporary update to the classic traditions of dining out. Peter Pan demonstrates that accomplished cooking does not require a fine dining atmosphere and aims to balance these elements by refining the neighbourhood bistro.

Peter Pan subscribes to the "nose-to-tail" philosophy, popularly readopted over the past few years. This approach extends beyond simply the consumption of meat, instead embracing the responsible use of all raw ingredients. More than an education through food, what some take as byproducts of cooking, nose-to-tail sees as ingredients in the search for pleasure.

I must say a huge Thank you to the wait staff for their patience that day. Our little group did enjoy everything.
Thank you Peter Pan! :)

My chicken was undercooked and my salad lacked flavour.

My girlfriend and I were here for my birthday. The manager Becks took care of us by helping us with a wine selection, the food menu and gave us a complimentary dessert to celebrate my birthday which was delicious. Wish the mussels were with tomatoes instead of sweet peppers and overall had a great night!

Loved the mussel bouillabaisse. Onion soup was a little salty. Bread in the onion soup was too dense. Rainbow trout was tasty. Brussels sprouts Caesar was good too.

Service was attentive and friendly.

Eat here and be happy. The food is spectacular. On Wednesdays, wine is 50% off
The food vision of the place is unique and the restaurant itself is a joy to be inside.

This visit was a special one - three birthdays to celebrate with all of us from out of town (I visit Toronto regularly and dine at Peter Pan often). The table I requested was waiting, the cocktails were soooo good, food excellent as always (including approved by the 'picky eater' with us), and our server was perfect (wish I could remember her name ...but she's British from Liverpool).

The food was amazing. The ingredients were fresh, high quality and cooked to perfection. The menu is contemporary and interesting. The service was perfect: friendly and prompt without being too attentive. I will be eating at Peter Pan again soon

Love this place! Great casual service, impeccable food, reasonable prices, and washrooms that don’t make you feel you’ve gone to a dark cave.... Will go back!

It's is a really nice place but the fried chicken sandwich was tasteless. How do you make fried chicken tasteless?

I tapped “Birthday” in the OpenTable reservation, and without ever mentioning it IRL, they brought complimentary madelines with a candle at the end of the meal. Next level.

While my dinner meal (Trout) was very good, my son’s (Pickerel) was bland and a very small portion. For $27 he was disappointed. Our server did not check in to see if we were enjoying our meal. I was not asked if I would like another glass of wine.
Disappointing service so we opted not to stay for coffee or dessert.
Overall, expensive for the quality and device.

Would not recommend, avoid at all costs for dinner, could be a nice place for a few drinks but nothing more. While the outdoor space is nice the food and service are extremely mediocre. The burger bun was more dense than bread. The seasonal vegetables were a plate of uncut vegetable that looked like garden weeds. On top of that the server asked if I was still eating, I replied yes, and she proceeded to take my plate. Avoid at all costs

The wine list is GREAT! Filled with fun nerdy wines to the delicious classics. The staff is wonderful and the atmosphere is historical and quaint. Also, if you're in the mood for a burger... get it. One of the best in Toronto.

My children and I went there for a special occasion last week. I mentioned the occasion on my OpenTable reservation. Our server was extra kind and very attentive through the entire evening. They even gave us complimentary desserts! Very unexpected but perfect in every way. I would have said this evening was exceptionally perfect had they not run out of our favorite dish - the lamb... that was kind of disappointing but the meals we ordered were fantastic anyway.

I normally write reviews after my 2nd visit to the restaurant to make sure food and services consistent. 100% I love this place a lot!! Sad that I wasn't able to try the Roasted Cornish Hen again I will order next time. We have the steak and trout ... Perfect.
