We were a group of 2 couples, and the other couple are picky eaters. I chose this place based on online menu and location. Well, everyone was more than satisfied with our meal. I am from out of province but wish I could eat here every week. And our server, Liana, was fantastic. She was sweet, efficient and didn't miss... More

After a day at ballgame and a pre dinner swim at the Yorkville 4 Seasons Hotel we were all hungry at 8:00 pm. Thank heavens for Jack's. It was only a quiet block away. The 5 children lined up sweetly on the red circle booth and enjoyed the kids menu: pasta and pizza. The rest of us had salads and... More

Always a good time with friendly staff and a great lively atmosphere. Volume is right and I always feel like they want me to come back and visit them again.

I recently went for the first time to Jack Astor's with a group of people who often go there - they of course liked the food, while I found the food average. I had an ok Avocado dip, but my chicken fingers were tasteless. Also,service was quite slow. My friends will return, I will not.

A little bit of a wait as it was crowded on both patios. Chilly patio night but inside was way too hot! Always a fun place to hang-out. Our waitress was fun/cheerful/always smiling/very accommodating. Our food was timely & delish; way too stuffed for dessert but I really wanted to try the cookie/brownie (great choice). Long time friends time to... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
