Great spot to eat downtown

I'm sure many people would recommend this place for dinner but it can also serve as a good spot for lunch. I worked nearby and came often for lunch (try the mac'n'cheese as a side). Service is great and they have a great selection of drinks. Also great choice for pre/post show dinner and drinks... read more

This is my favorite spot to eat in London. Fantastic food. Small plates style so you can order many different items. Never been disappointed

We were celebrating a special anniversary with friends and thought we'd treat them to some good food and wine. Those two features of this restaurant were superb. It IS very unfortunate that we were unable to visit during our dinner as the noise level was incredible! We had to shout to be heard which is what everyone else was doing.... More

Love this place. Such a fun atmosphere. I was there last weekend with a group of girls. We each had 2 apps. Lobster poutine, bacon wrap scallops, ahi tuna, duck wings, garlic and artichoke dip, baked shrimp, oxtail arepas. The food was and always is delicious. Great wine selection. Service was excellent.

We have visited The Tasting Room several time since my last review. The service each time has been excellent. Friendly staff with a good knowledge of the menu and the wine list. Attentive but not too attentive. On two occasions I have had the Grilled Ribeye. Both times it was excellent. One of the best steaks I have ever had,... More

My husband and I have been to the Tasting Room so many times as his family lives in London and everytime the food has been outstanding. Our very favourite place for rack of lamb. Very generous portion and done to perfection every time. The only downside is that the place is very noisy but if you like a happening scene... More

Have eaten here many times for both breakfast and lunch. Consistently great food and portion size always seems just right. Nice stop for intimate dinner but they can handle larger groups as well. Make a reservation as this a popular spot. Only thing that would make it better would be an outdoor patio.

For the most part I visit The Tasting Room for lunch, with a buddy or two. The lunch menu is imaginative & varied; you can eat lightly or not, as you choose. I have had perch here a couple times & it is without peer. It's called The Tasting Room for a reason: the selection of wine is extensive &... More

My sister and my brother in law and I had the pleasure of enjoying the Tasting Room last Saturday. The atmosphere is very cozy, with brick walls, soft lighting. The menu is wonderful; in fact it makes one seriously debate about what to order as there are so many excellent options. The Wait Staff are second to none; from their... More
