Had a wonderful meal at Baro. We didn't book and were lucky to get a table on Saturday night. Louisa serviced us, she helped us with our menu choices and took care of us the whole time we were there. Highly recommend. Thank you for...making our first night in Toronto so special. Louisa you have set the bar very high!More

One of the best meals I had in Toronto. Didn't need a reservation for our Sunday night dinner. The rooftop was packed, so we ate on the first floor. Great ambiance & service. My wife had the Aperol Spritz & I had The Geataway for...drinks. We tried the Chori Papa for our appetizer, and it was very, very good. For our entree, we shared the OG Duck Chaufa. That dish was MASSIVE! And man...IT WAS SO GOOD. I'd come back for this on a weekly basis. The duck confit was cooked perfectly, and everything in the bowl meshed together so well. The bowl is so hot that it actually keeps cooking, so you have to stir often to keep the dish from burning. But it keeps your food hot the whole time! Also got a side of potatoes, which had a nice, fresh lemon flavor. Everything was great. Afterwards, we hit the rooftop to check it out. Great DJ & bar up there. I can see why it stays packed. This place is a neighborhood gem.More

Nice atmosphere on the rooftop. The food was ok, too many Asian spices in Latin food. There is a reason this isn’t done, it doesn’t work. Not what I expected. The drinks were good.

I came here some time in the beginning of the month & the food is not the best! Very small portions. Washrooms are so dirty , & the servers don’t know how to pronounce the good names.

great vibe and lovely restaurant, the only thing is I found it to be a little too expensive for what i took, ordered a single corn on the kob it was 15 $ + tip.. other than that would recommend

This was my first time trying Baro, upon entering the interior was very modern and felt very tropical with all the greenery. The music is bumpin’ with latin hits and the restaurant overall has a great ambience. I started with the roasted brussel sprouts and...chili broccolini. For the mains, I had the pollo asado and OG duck chaufa. Food had great flavouring. The brussels and pollo asado tasted top notch. I will definitely be back again.More

The food was good. Had the chorizo tortillas. Very delicious. Needed a bit more acid. The duck wasn’t what I expected. I couldn’t find any duck in my dish. It was very tasty but where was the duck? For that price I would like a...couple slices of duck on top. Took the left overs home and still couldn’t find duck in the rice lol. Glorified fried rice to be Honest.More

Recently stopped by Baro. A Latin resto with a modern flair. This place has been on my list to visit for a while. Great looking restaurant with pretty darn good food. The Mac empanadas are absolutely amazing.

Went to Baro for brunch today and the food was delish. I had your standard eggs and bacon which came with sour dough toast, avocado and a home made salsa. Will definitely be going back.

If you’re looking for a decent patio with a good vibe Baro was nice. There are so many terrific places in the city that I’m not sure if I would visit again. The staff was lovely but the food was only OK.

What...a...f'in joke. Picked this place to take our son and his gf for their bday. We ordered the tuna, duck fried rice, pork tacos and the 32oz steak that cost $80. I ate here before, lat year, and the quality of the food was awesome,...hence why i chose this place. We ordered four entrees, tacos amd tuna came first, the duck fried rice came third. Which took about 20 mins - horrible horrible dish, hardly any duck. The steak came about over 40 minutes later and the bone prob weighed 16oz...it is covid time, the place is half as busy as pre-covid, AND on a Tuesday night - we were extremely extemely dissapponted with the food, the service. And that popsicle dessert? Omg....i don't even want to mention it. Will never ever return.More

I enjoyed the mix of latin music as well as a handful of other genres. The place looks really nice. Much different from before they did renovations. I’m definitely going back there again. I recommend this place if you want to dance. There’s a large...space on the third floor for socializing and dancing, to chill, you can hang out on the 2nd floor where there are tables and chairs and it’s more of an engaging environment, and there’s a hidden Escobar party in the back that if you get the password you can go in.More
