I used to live down the street from this place and it was my goto spot. I was there for dinner tonight and the food is still amazing as ever. I love their use of local produce and sustainable food. Service was perfect and they have a terrific selection of local VQA wines! Love the Hinterland sparkling! Their menu is... More

Local, organic, unique dining at an affordable price! Definitely worth a visit - super unique dishes, served up and sourced from local farms and prepared on-site. Be sure to make reservations in advance or arrive early for first come, first served brunches. A tiny little place, not mainstream, super helpful staff, loved the fact that food is sourced locally.

If you like to try new things and are a little adventurous, this is the place for you. I found the place because of Anthony Bourdains show and even though he didnt visit this particular restaurant, he hung out with the owner and recommended it. That being said, it was FANTASTIC. The menu constantly changes, but one staple according to... More

Tried the Beast120 menu with a friend on Friday. We tried pretty much all the snacks on the menu and our favourites were the anchovies and beef heart. We also had $1 oysters served with their own homemade hotsauce on the side, and also their version of the 'Poutine' which is a combination of fried gnocchi, wild hare and cheese... More

Went to brunch with friends. I understand when a place is full and you need to wait your turn. But if you're in line on the benches on the side for over 30 minutes, you shouldn't have to prompt the servers when your table has been clear for over 5 minutes. Then we had to wait for a menu, then... More

Not sure why this restaurant is rated so high in the review. Our daughters planned a special Father’s Day dinner and picked the wild boar “whole animal” $80/person dinner. It was our fault that we were late by over half an hour as my husband was delayed at a meeting and we had to drive from uptown in rush hour... More

Had dinner at Beast Toronto. Food and service were very good. Beast is a very tiny space, almost claustrophobic. Oysters on the half shell at $1.00 a peice were fresh and delightful. Rainbow trout tartare was delicious. Sweetbreads and Drake breast were memorable, if a little overcooked. The menu changes often, and the restaurant has different hours to most. Must... More

I went to Beast after reading reviews on tripadvisor. The food was indeed quite nice. It is not the same dishes that you find everywhere. Plus the tapas-like dishes allow you to share with your friends and try a bit of everything The staff was very friendly and they knew exactly what was inside each dish. That was would have... More

A recent birthday dinner following a wine tasting for an upcoming family wedding was really great. Starting with a delicious dark and stormy, we pretty much had one of every plate (there were six of us). Well, it was probably one or two plates too many, and the last one, a yummy leg of bird, sort of broke this camel's... More
