Barberian’s is a cozy, romantic type of place to enjoy a special occasion. The steaks were cooked absolutely perfectly as ordered, service was friendly and knowledgeable, and the restaurant is quiet and comfortable.

Barberian's Steak Restaurant is a very good place to have a very good dinner. They have great steak and they offer other items to choose from. Good place to put on your list.

Visited here on a whim and wasn’t disappointed. Excellent steak served quickly and with excellent service and a ‘heavy pour’ on the drinks. I’d recommend!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

As said, no dress code, but it is an upper class restaurant so dress pants would be preferable.
