Just a fantastic burger. Prob. the best I have ever had.
I went with my boyfriend and another couple of friends and we were all very impressed. We ordered the BBQ Platter for 3 and it was delicious. The brisket and the fried chicken are certainly the stars. We also had some oysters and they were deliciously fresh.
Service was very good and the hostess made us feel very welcomed the second we walked in.
I will most certainly come back on many other occasions.
The old CITY TV building. Nice looking room with good acoustics. The food presentation was 1990's. Small portions on a large plate so, poor value. Food quality was just average. Server could not understand that I simply wanted a large glass of ice for my water. The bar looked good but for dining, not a do-over. Carbon Bar should go off the air.
I always have an amazing time when I am at the Carbon Bar. The service, staff and food is amazing. Everything on the menu is delicious!
Overpriced for what it is. Can get better food elsewhere for the same price.
We went in on a Friday evening around 5 PM and found that they were just getting started for the night. The decor was a kind of rustic chic and really made an impression.
Great food and really welcoming staff. The food was presented nicely and tasted delicious.
Would definitely recommend for a casual late lunch or dinner on busy evenings after work.
Tasty food but my God the salt. We took in a week's worth of sodium. Ease back a bit
The burger seemed a bit bland but texture wise very nice. Atmosphere was enjoyable.
We got the meat platter for two and split it between three people, plus a salad, it was definitely enough food for everyone. Service was great as always, brisket is the best, drinks were tasty.
Fantastic as always. Was slow getting bill / settling up.
This was our first time at The Carbon Bar and it was a great experience! The staff were attentive and made sure our group was able to enjoy our meal.
Excellent service. Excellent ambiance. Incredible ambiance.
Excellent food and drinks. Our server (Phyllis) was amazing - she was very attentive and engaging. Spent a lot of time explaining and making recommendations. The whiskey cart was insane - it's worth ordering a drink of Bourbon or Whiskey. Arrive hungry - they serve a lot of food.
Foodie heaven! Craft cocktail lovers' delight! Hands down one of the best restaurants I have encountered. The carbon/smoked theme runs throughout the menu, to include food and drinks, but for those who are not into smoked meats (or fish), there is a shellfish menu. Delectable food and drink! Sublime experience! p.s., the fried green tomatoes alone are worth repeat visits!
Ambiance was good, service was good, food was not. I had a chicken dish with Huckleberries. Chicken was bland and undersalted; roasted potatoes also didn't have any salt, pepper or spices. Huckleberry sauce was EVERYWHERE on the plate... maybe to cover up the other lack of taste? I didn't even finish it. I also ordered the s'mores dessert, and I was underimpressed, I could have made it in my own kitchen for a lot less than $14.
My companion ordered the $8 "virgin cocktail" and she got a glass of grapefruit juice. I found it very overpriced for the food we received and I won't be eating dinner here again.
Great service. I had a 10:30 pm reservation and they called ahead to let me know the kitchen closes at 11 pm so be sure to order before then. Who does that :) Thanks for the heads up!
Carbon bar was so amazing, food came fast, my waiter was very nice and the food!!! The food was sooooooo good, I’m glad I discovered this place I will be good by time and time again!!!
Amazing tapas, cocktails and service! A little on the pricey side but very well worth it in my opinion. We will definitely be back!!!
Fun night , great casual dining , nice service
Another enjoyable experience. Bar service great, table service a bit soft. Overall highly recommend for top BBQ inc TO.
Food is very good here, not bad value, but bit pricy for what you get; you have to buy sides + appi's to make a proper meal and the appetizers are small. The BBQ is excellent. Was not impressed with the whole 'unconstructed' Caesar salad - thought that trend had thankfully passed where I have to mix my own salad. Service was slow and not very attentive, staff were friendly and nice though just not really focused on 'service'. We would have spent more on drinks and likely more appetizers had the server checked in on us.
Tried the K.F.C. (Korean fried cauliflower) and duck tacos for the first time - wow!! Absolutely delicious! K.F.C. Had a bit of heat which I can't usually handle but it tasted so good I couldn't help myself!
With three of us, we did the meat platter for 2 ppl to give us room to try other foods - as always, delicious, and generous portions that night.
End of the night, the machines wouldn't connect to allow us to pay by credit or debit; our British manager generously comped our meal after we tried again with every machine in the building and every card on us. We left all the cash we had for our lovely waitress Lisa, and left for the airport completely blown away by the service we received.
We ordered the seafood platter for an appetizer and the meat platter for our main. So amazing. And the bonoffee pie dessert was out of this world.
The food and the atmosphere here is always amazing.
When I booked the reservation I was asked if it was a special occasion, which it was so I was a little disappointed when no mention of the occasion was brought up during the service of the meal. Why ask if it doesn’t mean anything? Don’t think I need to go back.
The food is always great and was again this evening. We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful evening.
Excellent food, overpriced and mediocre wine list.
I loved my experience at The Carbon Bar Food Was amazing, Service was polite helpful and informative and atmosphere was unique and authentic Truly enjoyed my dinning experience.
Great vibe. My husband and 18 year old son loved the venue and the BBQ is great at a reasonable price. We did the platter for two and order sides.. baked beans were very good and so was the "KFC". I will return. It was my third visit.
Service was great food was amazing if you like good bbq would definitely recommend and if your looking for a new experience maybe something you haven’t tried before try it out !
Our first time at Carbon Bar for Father’s Day was a great experience & food! You have to try it! Restaurant located on Queen St. East of Yonge...had a nice stroll with the family after brunch! Great area ;)
Had a great meal and Izzy lead the wait team that took care of us! Service was fabulous!!!
Always good food and attentive staff. I take groups visiting from out of town and they always love it.
Loved this place! Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was fab! Most importantly the food was to die for! I have made plans to go back already! I want to try everything on the menu!!!! I highly recommend this restaurant!
Great restaurant amazing service
Food was great as well! No complaints definitely recommend!
The food is not as amazing as expected simply because we have had better food before, but they are def good. Desserts are spot on! They are a must-try for us.
The atmosphere is really good and it's def a good place to hang out with friends and share a good time and good food!
We are here with a group of friends before going to a concert at Massey Hall and ended up with the chefs table, so we were eating family style.
Having eaten here before I knew the food would be outstanding, but what really stood out this time around was the way they dealt with one of our group who is gluten and dairy intolerant.
With every course they made sure to come out and explain what he could eat and on two occasions brought him his own platter so there was no confusion.
Outstanding again and thank you!
Fantastic food and service. Will for sure be back.
Overall, a fantastic experience. The service was fantastic, as was the food, and I cannot believe how quickly our food arrived, it was amazing. 10/10 would recommend.
