I have always enjoyed visiting the Bistro over the years when I go to Toronto. I was surprised it had moved location but happy it was just down the road. The service was friendly and prompt but the wings were the real hit of the night, Exactly as I remembered hot, spicy and with the fabulous dipping sauce. I even... More

Don't ask for your wings well done, they will come burned to a dark crisp. Once again another place that originally was great as is going downhill fast. Service was not friendly.

Now further north at a new location, there is free parking available The menu remains the same and they still makr the best wings in the city. Service on Friday night was mediocre at best. Considering it wasnt terribly busy, the server forgot to come by to ask if we were ok, needed more drinks etc. Can't beat the wings... More

Bistro has been cooking up the best wings in Toronto for a long time now. Crowned as the "original" st.louis, Bistro takes its wings seriously. The "hot" and "suicide" sauces are mouth watering. Tuesdays have become a weekly gathering for a group of us, as the restaurant offers half-price wings every week (along with most other wing places on this... More

Every Super Bowl, we order wings from here and so does everybody else with good reason. Totally yum every time and they are efficient with the orders too. So glad they opted to move up the street than to close. Super yummy for the occasional treat.

New location. Free parking available. Wings are baked so they remain as good from the first wing to the last. I enjoy the dusted Cajun. IMO the wings here beat Drums and Flats down the street. Wait staff leaves a little to be desired but the wings are worth it!
