We shared awesome Chili fries - absolutely the best french fries I have ever eaten. Also, the wings with the BBQ sauce were great. Our server was sweet, attentive, and checked up on us just enough! It was noisy with Country music - but fun, as it was during stampede week!

We dropped by this pub on Canada Day while visiting on holidays we didn't feel like a big lunch so decided to go a for a nacho platter. The portion was huge, I reckon it would easily have satisfied 4 grown men we got through it though and washed it down with a couple of local beers for good measure

We shared a pizza for lunch. It was nothing to rave about. The topping was burned in spots and the crust was flat and lacked taste. The beers and service were good.

we went for drinks here on a Friday after work. Many of the staff were more interested in talking to their friends than serving the patrons. The wine selections were pretty good - as were the prices. Atmosphere was dated. Can't see any real reason for going back.

Libertine is one of my go-to restaurants for casual lunch / after work get togethers. The food is better than average, in fact the pork belly sandwich is one of the best sandwiches around. Service has always been above average as well. The after work atmosphere is lively and the location on Stephen Avenue Mall can't be beat. Pricing is... More

We go to Libertine sometimes after work for its laid back atmosphere - none of the "needs to be seen" crowd - just a couple of folks for good brews and food. The place can be packed especially when there is a hockey game and at that point, you might have to be really cozy with your company as the... More

It was Saturday night, but there were few guests, which probably says a lot. But hey, good wine and beer selection. There is not much else to say. Read into THAT what you will.

I was attending a private function. The food that they served was average. There was a limited selection of alcohol.

Great atmosphere for casual after work drinks or an easy lunch with colleagues. The menu is very diverse and changes pretty regularly. There's lots of options for vegetarians and gluten-free for those that require such dishes. Service is quick and pleasant. They also have great drink specials, especially during happy hour.
