Very traditional atmosphere, but great food

This is one of the first steakhouses I've been to and I found it to be a treat. The meat is so juicy and tender; it's perfectly cooked. The other elements of Barberian's Steakhouse, the atmosphere and service, are just as great.

“Don’t let the name scare you”, this circa-1959 steakhouse in the Downtown Core is a “classic” for “mouth-watering” cuts, an “exhaustive” array of wines and “professional” service in “cosy” digs with an “old boys’–club feel”; some say “time has not been kind” (it “rests on reputation”), though “nostalgic” types still tout it for a “high-end” treat.

Not getting enough protein? Get thee to Harry Barberian's upscale steakhouse, which has been going strong since 1959 (his son, Arron, has since taken over). The room is cozy in a clubby way, with dark woods and framed newspapers. The menu rarely changes, but you won't hear any grousing -- the crowd is too busy sipping martinis. The highlights are the eight steaks, from 9-ounce sirloin to... more

Barberian's is one of Toronto's most famous steakhouses. This bastion of meat, once considered slightly off the beaten path on low key Elm Street was founded in 1959 and has served its share of the nation's Prime Minister's, celebs and Hollywood royalty.

Great service, ambiance is good. steak was good but I guess was to hyped about the place got disappointed a bit with the steak. Price was reasonable but hard to get a glass of wine Under 30 bucks. Escargots were very disappointing maybe more garlic butter to add a bit of hype to it.

I've had better for better price. Drinks are well served, and pop-overs are delicious. I would return.

Very good food. The porterhouse was slightly overcooked than the medium-rare I requested, however the steak was tender. The wine list was impressive and extensive (and overwhelming), in these instances I usually allow the waiter to make a selection for me within a certain price range. I asked for a red in the $70-$80 range; he surprised me with a great red wine (Marietta)and I believe it may... more

Steaks are aged and cut on the premises. Favourites include the porterhouse, Chateaubriand for two and grilled rack of lamb. The “house” dessert is white and dark chocolate cast in the shape of the restaurant and filled with chocolate mousse. Lunch Mon.-Fri., dinner daily. Smart casual. Entrees: $26.50-$54.50. AE, MC, V.

You can excuse Barberian's for having a slightly dated atmosphere. The restaurant opened in 1959 and some of the patrons have a long standing history, equating Barberian's with celebration for more than 50 years, which certainly bodes well.

Barberian's has a simple charm with artwork by the Group of Seven hanging on the walls. All of the steaks are aged on the premises. There are a myriad of... more

You’ll find original Group of Seven paintings on the wall and a suited maitre d’ at the front door of Barberian’s, but don’t let it scare you. Set in an historic 1860 house, you’ll find hockey fans seated next to bank presidents. Toronto athletes are also known to frequent Barberians, and for some reason the Cleveland Indians always eat here when they’re in town getting beaten by the Jays (go... more
