One of Toronto's great jazz haunts, Gate 403 offers a classic bistro menu, good selection of draught beers and live entertainment twice nightly. I've been performing here every few months and staff is fantastic. Close to lots on the trendy Roncesvalles strip, a real up and coming neighbourhood... read more

Had a beer served by a very nice girl who said it was a family business. Her brother came along and told me I should try the hamburger. I did. Maybe I was exceptionally hungry from the combination of biking and beer...(not recommended!) But the hamburger was the best I've had in years.. Although not advertised as gourmet..it was far...

We met up with friends for supper here - a catch-up meeting. The service was very slow - we waited about an hour to get our order, and we didn't get the water we asked for when we first sat down until well into our meal. The quality of the food was ok - decent portion sizes. The live music... More

I live close to roncevilles. So this is a regular place to visit. They have great live jazz music always and a great crowd to enjoy. Food is at reasonable price and tasty. Nothing fancy. Just a simple place to enjoy live music and food. It's not the greatest place to chat since it does get louder with music.

Located in the heart of Roncy Village, across from old movie theatre, this small restaurant has been a staple of the Roncesvalles for years. It's a good place to stop for a drink or two, listen to music and grab a bite. Food is a typical bar fare, good chicken wings with fries and even calamari are tasty.Owners are open... More

Healthy portions of great food.....all supplemented with excellent jazz featuring many excellent and talented musicians both from the local area (which boasts a great deal of talent in the many arts) as well as national. Great atmosphere. At times it may be a wee bit too loud to talk so sit back and listen...

We went here after work to catch a nice little jazz trio, drink real ale and eat some good pub food - really pleasant place to chill out. The food is very reasonably priced and we really enjoyed our meals. We also enjoyed the Mill St Tankhouse dark beer and the wheat- beer style Blanche de Chambly, from quite a... More

I decided to go out with a few friends to this place. I went mainly to hear the band, they were great. We sat up from and i felt really cozy. I will say that the place felt a little small, probably not the best for a large party. The food was good, we had nachos and wings. Good pub... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
