Be prepaired to wait for a table

We had to wait a little over 30 minutes for a table for 4 on a Sunday afternoon, outisde in the rain! But was worth it. Everyone had great food and this place lived up to its reputation.

I saw this on Anthony Bourdain's 30 Hours in Toronto show and was surely not disappointed at brunch. My only concern is that if you have a picky eater in your party their menu is eclectic! I ordered the Challah French Toast with duck confit, cranberry sauce and creme fraiche. At first I wasn't sure what to think: duck on... More

Beast is a small place serving interesting and great tasting small plates. You would not think that some of the combinations would go together but they do. Wednesday night is half price bottled wine night! Service was very friendly.

Interesting menu choices. If you have a picky eater in your group they may have a difficult time finding something to eat. I wish I could give half-points because the food was definitely above "average" but I also wouldn't say it was "very good". It wasn't busy when we went, but we heard that sometimes there are lineups that wait... More

Came here on Mothers Day and had an absolutely amazing brunch. We arrived 15 minutes before they opened and thank goodness we did because the lineup was starting at that time. We started off trying each of the donuts. Almond bourbon, caramel chocolate, rhubarb and maple bacon. Each one was absolutely incredible. I wanted to go back for more later.... More

Two friends and I had plans to visit the theatre (Ronnie Burkett's "Daisy Theatre" at Factory Theatre, Queen and Bathurst area) and wanted to grab a bite to eat, beforehand. After a Google searches we decided on Beast. What a GREAT decision. I was delighted when I pulled up in front of the restaurant - a modest yet funky building... More

After all these + reviews, I had to check it out. The place was almost packed when we showed up for brunch at 11am. It was a bit noisy and smelled like the kitchen. Menu was intriguing and seemed a bit innovative. (If you are looking for healthy items then this may not be the place for you!) The maple... More

Crab cake eggs benedict was fantastic, as was the homemade ketchup and two hot sauces. Friendly and accommodating staff. Best to make reservations for dinner but for brunch they don't take reservations, it's first come first serve basis.

I agree with some of the reviews below. I don't understand why this place gets such good ratings. It was a big disappointment. It's basically overpriced mini dishes...and the food is not even all that good. The dinner menu is tapas and tapas is meant for sharing, so why have a dish with one little rib on it?? You cannot...

Nice restaurant with very interesting menu. The dinner formula gives you the possibility to taste several dished without being overloaded. The service is friendly and quite reliable and I got good advice on what to select on how to compose my dinner. The wilde boar sausage was delicious as well as a small dish of tripe not to mention the... More
