I just went here for drinks for several hours. The weather was great and the outdoor seating was perfect. This is located just across the street from the TRUMP where we were staying.

Everytime we travel to Toronto we have to stop here! I love how busy it is at all times! The bruschetta is to die for, Same with the steak frites. Unreal service as well! Go here!

I used to frequent South of Temperance at lunch with coworkers when I had time to take a lunch. That was a year ago, and a year ago this place was great. The servers were friendly and they had great food (Not Your Grandmother's Grilled Cheese was my favourite, which is no longer on the menu). I went for lunch... More

We went for meal here as part of our holiday. The patio area was full but we were happy to sit inside. Food is good, tasty and a good selection. The atmosphere is vibrant and pleasant. Like some reviews, it is the service that lets it down. Waitresses all look and dress the same, suited perhaps to the main clientele... More

Just got back from dinner here- love going to this place for a lunch with work friends or after work drinks. Patio is a good time but it fills up quickly.

We came here to celebrate my birthday. What a mistake! After waiting almost an hour for a table that I had reserved a week in advance, we were completely ignore by our waiter and I had to speak with a manager just to get menus. We decided to settle up the bill for our table inside (while we waited for... More

South of Temperrance is a refreshing change from the typical lunch venues in the area. I like the food for several reasons: (a) the menu has a good mixture of standard fare and slightly more exotic fare, (b) the food is predictable and the same from one visit to the next and (c) the portions are a respectable size. Despite... More

The only great thing in there was the terasse and the nice tempeture that day. Reading the reviews prior going to this restaurant, we were up for a good evening, what a deception it was. First of all we both asked for a longIsland Iced tea. Working for several years in the restaurant business it was not a long island... More

busy busy busy and then at 8 not - i gather they must catch the go. Food is great, service is great, very packed when packed, but you can spend a great weekend afternoon enjoying it with a few friends (not a bad brunch). Mon-Fri just suits and those looking for suits.
