Meet the owner

Around 2010, siblings Kyle, Glen and Chloe Kristenbrun were tossing around concept ideas for a bar they wanted to open above their successful breakfast restaurant, Over Easy on Bloor Street. They wanted something that reminded them of a classic North American tavern. “We went around the U.S. to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and New Orleans to get ideas and research what we considered to be in the same vein,” says Kyle. “We checked out the food, the design and décor, and we came up with our concept from that.” That idea resulted in the opening of Museum Tavern in July of 2012.

    The service was good. Our waiter was respectful and nice. However, one of the main plates took over 40 minutes to be served because the pasta was frozen and it was taking longer to defrost. Inmediatly, we thought that plate wasn't going to be good and it wasn't, unfortunately. Too expensive for pasta with tomato paste, lots of olives and mushrooms and only three little pieces of lamb. I made the reservation because I heard very good opinions about burgers and ended up ordering pasta. I guess I shouldn't have changed my mind at the end. Oh well!

    Excellent meal and great service as always. We had the oysters to start, I had beer battered fish and chips, and my husband had the duck confit. The oysters were fresh and the mignonette was delicious and lively. The beer batter on my fish was light and crisp, the fish itself was generously thick and perfectly cooked. The chips were crisp and tasty and the side of tartar sauce was very good. The duck was well cooked and the side of bacon, corn, tomato, etc, was superb and the perfect accompaniment. We enjoyed a crème brûlée dessert which was perfectly smooth and rich. The service was wonderful, our waiter poured our wine for us and made sure we had everything we needed to our satisfaction. Great time!

    our server was friendly and helpful with info about wine and the menu, but not completely attentive. i had had to remind him to bring me my glass of wine, and when he brought my espresso, there was no sugar or spoon to go with it. After finally getting his attention he went off to do other things before finally bringing a spoon...

    The service was fast and amazing. Our server was very attentive and nice. I would definitely make another visit to the venue later on. The Winterlicious Dinner really gave me a good idea of the service and quality of food available at Museum Tavern.
