  • As a restaurant, Bier markt falls short.

    Recently visted to check out the expanded menu with game items (elk, boar, etc) and our party left unsatisifed. The game menu was overpriced, and under portioned across the board, and the hour plus wait for food didnt exactly put us in the right mood to enjoy our meal. At this price range, it is pretty bad to make a patron wait that long with no bread or appitizers to snack on.

    I fell that Bier Markt is simply coasting on their status as the default location for corporate outings, and not really putting any effort into their food. At this price range there are tons of better choices in TO.

  • Another thumbs up on the AYCE selection.

    Other sushi places around the city tend to offer a limited selection on their AYCE menu, but we were delighted with the number of options available for $20. Sashimi was a nice surprise, as were a wide selection of rolls, and even some dessert options.

    Like most people one here, we found the service to be just OK, we would often have to flag down our server, but hey, we were always treated well once we got her attention. I would just tell people to be a little more proactive (in a polite way) if they would like their servers attention.

  • Order: AYCE of course
