I was in Carbon Bar in February 2019. Meal - particularly steak - was grandiose. It made me make a reservation for my birthday last week. Service was average. However steak was bad. It was not meat - but tendons that we’re cut in advance (regardless, ti cut it to smaller pieces was a challenge). The only good “entry” was beer. I am not sure that would come here any more and definitely will not advise anyone to come here.
Great night, awesome food and service!!! Starter cocktail was lovely. Many great wines to choose from, always a plus. Oysters were fresh. We had lots of appetizers which never disappoint. Duck tacos outstanding. We shared two deserts which were beyond yummy. Great place to celebrate two birthday. Very attentive staff!!
Amazing high end BBQ. From the appies through the mains, the food is high quality and delicious.
You pay for what you get. Excellent service and high end bbq food with unique little twists. Great cocktails. Lots of Smokey flavors in food and drink.
Amazing bbq and a creative take on eggs Benedict
Miss the Sunday brunch and the beignets -- disappointing that brunch has been discontinued and the lack of vegetarian options on the menu.
I've been to Carbon Bar a few times now - and I'm always blown away by the food and service.
I decided to bring the family for Mother's Day brunch while they were in town. Staff couldn't have been more accommodating and the food, once again - phenomenal.
With their soaring ceilings and knowledgeable staff, the experience at Carbon Bar is always fantastic. This time we enjoyed the offerings from the Bourbon Cart which has some of the best selections of bourbon in the city!
Coolest BBQ place in town. Been 3 times and will go again - great service and food.
Love this place, great food, drinks and incredible service!
All around great! Only con was it was very cold inside
Food was tasty but overall experience was disappointing. Menu is limited. Cocktails are over priced and menu limited there too.
In a sketchy area, meat arrived cold, service was ok, will not return.
I've been going to this restaurant for quite some time now. Last few times were a bust, especially last night. I ordered the same as i always do, they changed the meat platter... chicken is half the size and fried with a different batter (not good) they waiter instructed us that they were "running out of chicken" so are pieces were cut in half (The place was literally empty) . The ribs were WAY too salty, and the brisket was tough . They added some turkey to the platter, which was not good at all, and should not be on there! I remember the time when i would have to make a reservation 1 week in advance, now you can call the night of. This place is going way downhill .. starting with the food !

Service was great! Food & drink were also good but the wine was a bit over priced.
Fantastic! Crocodile bites are a must!
Servers were knowledgeable and friendly. Ambience is great for a business meeting and it feels very open.
Amazing place, great food and awesome staff. I will be there again. ... soon.
The food is always delicious! One of my favourite eats in the city.
Great severs with great recommendations. Thank you Darren and Sam.
Very friendly atmosphere and patrons seemed to be having a good time. The food was very good, but the menu is a little limited and pricey so come prepared. The decor inside is very nice, good variety of drinks, but I would say it's more of a tapas and drinks spot. I would definitely go back to hang w/ friends and share some plates and drinks. Very laid back. Most tables were full, but I didn't have to shout to have a conversation nor did I overhear others' conversations. Great weekend location! Definitely give it a try!!!
Great space and service, would recommend for drinks but not for their food
Always a constantly great meal! Food was lovely! On the pricier side but worth it for a special/once in a while occasion! Really unique modern twice on BBQ.
Must get the KFC.
We had great food, drinks and service here. The bourbon list was extensive and I can highly recommend the The Black Mambo Margarita- it was absolutely delicious!!! We had the sampler for food. Everything was very tasty and we had plenty of leftovers as well. I honestly can say I think the ribs were some of the best I have ever had. We had a great experience here and will be back when in Toronto.
The steak was a bit tough but the atmosphere/music/service was really nice. Worth trying it. Just make a reservation.
Upbeat and fun place to go for dinner. If you like BBQ, it’s a great place to go. The server suggested delicious starters and was very attentive. Food came out quickly which was nice because we were hungry. We never felt rushed or forgotten.
Great atmosphere, service and food. We were a group of 6, all were impressed, would definitely go back.
Another good meal with lots of food and reasonable wines to compliment. Was a busy night and noise was a little louder than normal but all of us enjoyed the night!
Amazing time. Waitress forgot about us after serving food. Otherwise amazing staff and helpful. Great time.
The food came so fast before the drinks even. We were out in 30 minutes.
Always great BBQ. Keep coming back.
been a couple times now enjoyed both visits. nice because not crazy busy before leafs or jays and a nice walk to events
The overall experience at The Carbon Bar was excellent. The food is absolutely amazing and you really get the bang for your buck! I highly recommend the wings and the ribs! The drinks are also very well made! Definitely would go back again!
It’s too expensive. The seafood was fantastic, but nothing special about the meat. I could get better ribs for a better price.
Best brisket I have ever had. They also have a very impression bourbon cart that they wheel to you if asked. Overall, great experience. We will be back.
Service was amazing. We didn't eat much of our apps and the server inquired at the end of the meal if we liked them, we said they were fine just not our taste and he removed them with no prompting. We were blown away. KFC app was phenomenal as was the black mamba cocktail but the BBQ platter was underwhelming. Ambience was nice.
Fab food. Share the platter and it was perfect
The food was great. The guys all had the meat platter and the gals had good variety to choose from. I recommend the octopus paella. Overall something to make everyone happy.
What a fantastic meal. Everything was outstanding. Highly recommend. Service was friendly and attentive, food was decadent. Made for a perfect date night experience.
I can’t rave enough about this place! The place exuded friendliness as soon as went through the front door and were happily greeted by the host. We were sat immediately and service was impeccable all night. My drink was delicious (husband just had soda) and I was thrilled they had big bottles of Labatt 50 on hand. Our arrived extremely quickly (maybe 15 minutes?) and we were always tended to without being overdone. We were very happy with our experience and will definitely be back!
