Delicious & Unique Menu

I LOVE eating the Sov! A unique menu offers classics with a twist and some totally new offerings, always crafted with care and delicious. My personal favourites are the wood-fired pizza's and the duck confit poutine!

We used to love eating here because of the great food and awesome beer selection. The food has not been great my last few visits and definitely not how it was a few years back. The pizza last night was undercooked so the pancetta was soggy and so was the crust, the sauce was good. I quit ordering the fig... More

So when you mention to your waiter that your drink tastes weird, and he says 'you still have to pay for it and go talk to the bartender', instead of 'oh, I'm sorry, what's wrong with it'... You know something is wrong. And when you go and talk to the bartender and he says 'no one else is complaining about... More

Always have great food and drinks here! The wait staff and bartenders are always great too! Next time you're there, have Cal make you an old fashioned with Bullet Boubon and walnut bitters! Divine! Brunch here is always a treat....the chicken and waffles is so flavourful and filling!

The flat bread pizzas are always excellent. The last time I was on the Strongbow reps were giving out free samples! The duck pouting is a disgusting mass of fat carbs and meat.

Okay, my visit was over a year ago, so keep that in mind. In a sort of run down area, not dangerous just a lot of empty storefronts. This place was rammed though, and it was mid-week! Amazing draft beer selection, including some decent local stuff. Took a while to get a table, and even the bar area (bar at... More

If you are looking for pints after work, a late night snack, apps, or dinner this is a great place. Staff is always attentive and very nice. Food is great, and a good selection of beer.

The inventive kitchen staff always performs at a very high level. Sweet potato, Curry, peanuts soup was delicious. We all shared an order of the Fried Brussel Sprouts and Cauliflower starter, very good. Pea Shoot and Apple Salad was also delightful. A few had the Chicken Sandwich. A couple had the Pulled Pork Tacos. And of course a couple wrestled... More
