Continental
Nestled in the atrium of Mies Van der Rohe’s modernist TD Towers, Bymark perfectly reflects the dynamic energy of Toronto’s bustling financial district. The bar is a mix of leather and wood, flooded with sunshine during the day and a dramatic mix of candlelight and cityscape at night. The glittering dining room impresses with Yabu Pushelberg’s timeless design, both a focal point and a stage for a memorable meal.
Chef Brooke McDougall’s seasonal and ambitious menu uses luxurious ingredients to elevate comfort classics.
The offerings range from signature dishes like a butter-braised lobster poutine and the classic Bymark burger to miso roasted sea trout and hand-made pastas. Bymark’s extensive wine list expertly matches the tone of the menu with sommelier selected offerings to match any meal or occasion. The constantly evolving cocktail menu offers delicious contemporary creations inspired by the finest ingredients and our award-winning mixology team.

Great food, small portions but I'm not too upset with it as it was a great overall experience. Had ordered an app and a main but ended up getting a other app and a side as portions weren't big. Definitely would recommend and would go back!

Booked a reservation. Plenty of seating available. Hostess sat us next to a bunch of loud drunk bros, which killed the ambience of my partners birthday dinner.

Outstanding food and still a great wine list. Staff is challenged to keep up with the demands of the changing season and COVID. Certainly more than adequate.

Ok so this is the downtown sister to ONE Yorkville. The secret is to order the lobster tacos which are made in house and off the menu and not available in Yorkville. Boss up.

Downstairs dining room looks beautiful, but eating upstairs underneath the tent was still quiet nice especially with the heating lamps that took the edge of the cool weather. Great service and food, but a little pricey (expected for downtown).

Great food, great service. I had googled "top Toronto restaurants" then checked out their menus. Admittedly I had seen Bymark's Summer menu but their Fall one was just fine too. Social distancing and safety was at ease here as it was rather quiet, very well spaced out between tables and everything was very, very clean and fresh. The food was wonderful and I can say without exaggeration that their Halibut was the best Halibut I've ever had. The Ahi Tuna Tartare was divine and the Wagyu Beef Spring Rolls? Just wonderful. Their sauces were amazing. Would go back there again, absolutely. I have to say though, my mom still makes a better Apple Crisp.

The food was subpar especially considering this is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Toronto. Portions were tiny even for French dining. The lobster poutine was extremely salt. The fish tacos was like a shredded chicken salad but with shrimps put in 5 tiny corn chips (not tacos). The steak tartare was not fresh tasting. Very disappointed. We decided to skip the dessert because we didn't want to be disappointed even more. High end prices with low end value and taste, this is one to skip.

It was very cold and they do not have enough heaters to keep all the tables warm. They also do not have enough staff so the service was super slow which did not help since we were freezing to death. The chicken in the sandwich was not fully cooked. The rest of the meals were fine but not exactly great value for the money they charge.

Lovely just wish our waiter didn’t have a vented mask during pandemic. Most people are up to speed on the use of the vented masks by now. Tuna tartare was the absolute best. Martinis are best served in a martini glass (I asked for an ice cube so my own fault). Focaccia was amazing. Calamari and octopus was incredible. Such a fantastic space outdoors and protected from wind, surrounded by what is arguably the best architecture in Toronto. I will return forever. The main bar needs a design update.

We had mentioned that we booked a special occasion.... it was to celebrate an engagement!

None of the staff acknowledged that we had booked a special occasion.

The hostess was extremely rude and our server had a very negative attitude towards us. Example when I stated we would love a glass of Prosecco, he said okay and walked away without telling us the options and just brought us back a glass. When I asked about the meal, his response was very blunt - I have allergies to sauces and that’s why I inquired about a certain sauce as every restaurant has its own take.

We were absolutely shocked to receive a bill that included two glasses of champagne for $75.

While we were inside because of the torrential down pour, the servers were trying to coordinate where to put everyone. We were ready to order another drink until I heard our server say “these two are done” insinuating that we were finished - which we gave no indication to what so ever and were actually ready to order an additional round of drinks.

Living in the heart of the entertainment district, we have been to numerous restaurants. We have never been treated so poorly or felt so uncomfortable. Especially on a $130+ bill for two: with 1 appetizer and 4 drinks.

Disappointing. I’ve been to Bymark many times and this time it was.... just meh. The steak tartare was terrible. My husband’s lamb was just ok and my lobster pasta was mediocre. I wish we’d booked somewhere else! Bymark isn’t what it was.

Food was a tad bland missing aromatics. Server was mildly attentive. Food scraps weren’t cleaned up between courses which is not my expectation for a $$$$ restaurant. Was told parking was validated, but wasn’t told it was only after 5:30 PM so ended up paying $25

Patio is nice, food was good but service was lacking. Not attentive at all to the point we felt ignored a few times. Didn't even get welcomed with an introduction to our waiter, just jumped right in to "what do you want to drink?" We chose Bymark to celebrate a birthday and that wasn't even acknowledged at all, despite making a note in the reservation. Left feeling like it wasn't a special dinner whatsoever. Just mediocre and we expected better from a McEwan restaurant.
