  1. Raihana Ally Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    Evening was made perfect. Black Ox didn’t disappoint. Excellent service and excellent food. We had a corner table for nine and never felt rushed or crowded. The Rib Eye was excellent. Definitely grab appetizers,they are wonderfully HUGE! We had a blast.

  2. Diego Preira Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    We actually had to wait 10 minutes with reservations because the place was packed, but that’s perfectly acceptable anywhere you go. But it was well worth the wait. It was my wife’s birthday and the hostess and waitstaff went out of their way to make it a special night. The food, of course, was excellent ( best to share veggie deep-dish pizza), but what I liked best about Black Ox Bistro was the fun and friendly atmosphere.

  3. Ayesha Goven Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    Wow I cannot say enough good things about the dinner we had at Black Ox Bistro. We dined on the churrasqueira wings (to die for), filet mignon and grilled garlic butter jumbo shrimp. The meal was a 20/10. The filet mignon literally melted in your mouth and it is served with a creamy cafe de paris butter. I am literally drooling as I write this review. SOOOO good. Definite return trip.

  4. Faisal Husseing Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    We ambled into the restaurant with no reservation around 8:30 pm, but was seated quickly and orders taken. I am a huge fan of the bone-in ribeye here at Black Ox, and so I got my favorite! We started with bacon-wrapped scallops and it was lovely, very flavourful. We ordered hand cut fries, a baked potato and lobster tail as sides and they were all very tasty. The waitstaff really worked hard to please us, and for a late dinner, I think it would have been hard to beat.

  5. Ferhana Jawed Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    I have heard about the King of The Ribs but never tried them until now. OMG! Over the top deliciousness. We ordered the 8 oz filets, charred at medium-rare and that’s my absolute favorite way to eat steak, The plates are served to you red hot while your steaks continue to sizzle you can dish up your side dishes. Besides the king ribs, we enjoyed the shrimp curry. Wonderful!

  6. Fareeha Khan Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    This is definitely up there with the best steak I’ve ever eaten. The waiters have immense knowledge are well trained and super friendly. This is the best place to go as far as I’m concerned, it gets pretty busy in there as you’d expect for such a fab steak so you need to book! Don’t miss out it’s a must!!!

  7. Nouman Rahman Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    I went here with my wife on a recent trip. We have been to other nice steakhouses, but this one really impressed us. The service was impeccable, and the food was amazing. We both had fillets with jumbo shrimp with garlic butter (wow!). We also had salads (a caesar salad and a special which was a grilled chicken with romaine hearts and herbed croutons). I don’t have anything negative to say about our experience.

  8. Ibrahim Yattabare Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    We visited Black Ox for a late dinner seating, following an awesome day in the city. We were seated immediately, and drinks were served nearly immediately. We were shown the Black Ox’s meat offerings, and soon after we were dining on our steaks. My wife ordered the Rib Eye and I had the filet mignon. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Flavorful, tender, juicy, and delicious. We had lobster tail with lemon herb butter as our side. The food was delicious. The portions are gargantuan and are best shared.

  9. Sukrij Ramie Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    I was dieting but figured I should actually order what the restaurant was known for, so I ordered a steak. It was seasoned to perfection, cooked just the right temperature. The beef lasagna was amazing. To top it all off, I accidentally left my wallet on the table. I returned several hours later to find it unharmed, sealed in a bag and locked up with security. I am very appreciative of the helpful staff who assisted me in reclaiming it.

  10. Ali Bhatti Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    We very carefully chose this restaurant after a lot of thought on picking and choosing an amazing restaurant when me and my girlfriend visited the place and BAM, we chose the best! =)
    The food here is spectacular. From the way it is cooked to the flavours, wow!
    I must also include the decor and vibe has a very romantic feel to it. The service is also excellent – you will not be disappointed!

  11. Karim Chemlal Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    Made reservations when visiting this joint. It was great. Walking distance from my home. I love the location. It can be romantic and for business all in one. I enjoyed my meal — I got the Filet Mignon cooked medium and side of aged basmati rice. Make a reservation and enjoy fine dining at its best.

  12. Nasir Mustafa Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    The atmosphere was great, good service as well. We went for lunch got seats no waiting. the waiter was excellent, he gave us space to talk and eat and did not bother us throughout the meal. That’s a plus for me. The food came on time and in order, there was time space between appetizer and entree. I recommend this place for the steaks. Best in town!

  13. Karimi Jalali Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    We had an excellent anniversary dinner here this past weekend. The waiter was extremely accommodating–informative but gave us room to consider the menu, made some great suggestions. My wife had a new york striploin, which was amazing–our waiter gave a recommendation on how to have it cooked and was spot on. To be honest I normally used to have well done but he politely asked me to try the medium and I must say that I am converted for life. My 8 oz filet mignon was perfect, as was the sautéed mushroom with fresh herb butter and hand cut fries. We had the black ox brisket poutine as an appetizer, which were quite delicious. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a special night out at an amazing steakhouse.

    This restaurant was recommended by a friend who travels frequently. I was not disappointed. I had a filet mignon and grilled garlic butter jumbo strips. This is the only halal restaurant that doesn’t freeze their steaks – so the meat quality and juiciness is insane. It was excellently prepared and quite delicious… The setting was great as well with both indoor and outdoor seating. Next time I visit, I will try the classic beef short ribs.

  16. Lane Reid Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    I had an awesome work lunch at Black Ox last week with the team. The waiter was super friendly and helpful in giving menu recommendations. Everything we ate was delicious. I already want to go back and have the grilled chicken breast because I saw two people order it and it looked spectacular. The dining room seemed pretty fancy but it was modern type of fancy which means we can still be business casually dressed.

  17. Nouman Black Ox Bistro - *CLOSED*

    I was invited by my colleagues to check this place out and judging by all the positive reviews and the strong Facebook following and the packed dining halls… I can tell there is something to discover in this place… Let me start off by saying that I was very excited about this place opening since the winter. I really think our community is ready for a place of this caliber. Everything is done at a much higher level and its about time to have this kind of bistro… simple but elegant! I arrived around 7:30 on Friday night with my colleagues, I was greeted by a warm hostess who showed me to our seats with no wait time. I scanned the room which had amazing decor, modern lighting and spectacular seating and tables. I couldn’t believe this was a Muslim place. All the guests looked so happy and were clearly enjoying their food so I couldnt wait to get started. The waitress attended to us immediately and was super polite, always smiling and was able to answer all of my questions. I somehow liked the chcken wings — BY FAR the BEST wings I have ever had. The brazilian sauce was awesome ($12) typical price for wings. We actually ordered the most famous Black Ox steak…. I ordered the filet mignon and I had it medium rare – the best way to have it. It was really a blast to taste the tender juicy meat! It was just AMAZING! It came just the way I like it and I was blown away. I paid $3 extra for the premium mushroom sauce and I was very happy I did. Best halal steak in Toronto indeed.
