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.

Love that there is a covered patio. Very safe and makes it nice to be outside. :)

Great outdoor patio, with lots of space between tables. Everyone's choice for their lunch entree (all different) got raves. Hope the outdoor dining can continue here for weeks to come!

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.

Bymark have done a very good job with Covid protocols including proper distancing, arranging tables, masking, directing flows etc. The wait staff were excellent and highly conscious of the protocols at all times. The food was as expected.

The overall vibe was cool.
I reserved a table for 9 for my 30 th birthday and couldn’t have been happier. I forgot our waitress name but she was amazing . She answered all our questions about the menu and had great energy .
I also thought it was sweet that they wrote happy birthday on my desert.
Thank you for the food and service

The food was ok but the price was high (especially the drinks). I think it’s a good place for people to network but it’s better to go some where else if you are just looking for a place to hang out with friends/family

Given all that is going on, a few hours on the Bymark patio with friends is the best antidote to Covid.

The food was excellent! Service was great but the only thing I would say could be improved is the calamari would have been best served with a sauce of some sort. Other than that my main dish was out of this world and the cheesecake was to die for !!

Staff was very accommodating and help modify their dinner for our request. Nothing crazy but they were really nice about it. In non COVID times the king street location might be too noisy from the patio. Just keep that in mind. But food wise, absolutely nothing but praise. Amazing tenderloin, crab cakes and octopus.

Wagyu beef seems overly expensive ...($186)...i was expecting more about the meat, such as the "melting" sensation in the mouth, but it didn't...but the flavour embedded in the meat. The taste is fine.
It could be decorated with some green leaves or red berries on the plate to surprise the visual impression, instead of the single piece of luxury Wagyu on a white plate alone...

Waitresses are polite and helpful
