Did not have to wait for a table for 2, even had option for high top or seated. Food was very good and the service was efficient. Not that many food choices but there are enough choices that everyone can choose something. I like being in and out in an hour. Very nice decor, the ceiling is wonderful.

Not a lot of food choices - the wine list is longer at lunch! There are enough choices that I'm sure everyone can choose something. Appreciate lunch places where you can be in and out in 1 hour without stressing. I prefer to have a reservation to make sure you do get in. Very nice ambiance. Comfort food.

Quite busy for a weekday night, but before a leaf game, so it was expected. Didn't have to wait for a table for 2, even had option for high top or seated. Food was much better than I assumed it was going to be. burger and wrap were decent portion sizes, and service was efficient. In and out in just... More

This was the one restaurant that we planned on visiting in Toronto due to the reviews, but I was disappointed. The server sucked!! They seemed to be short staffed that night cause our server had a lot of tables. She would bring one drink refill at a time and then take forever to bring my husbands drink refill. The food... More

Excellent location and food, great service and the bartender has a thick Irish accent so you feel like you are in downtown Killarney. Great place to have a meal before the hockey game at the ACC, or on St Patricks day. A nice slow poured Guinness goes down great here. Try it ! Paul

Visited here with family on a Sunday afternoon for their 11am to 3pm brunch. Have come here several times as a good place for after work drinks, but never on a weekend. The crowd was much quieter and we could actually hear ourselves speak :). Actually enjoyed looking around me as it's a heritage building. Ordered the eggs bene with... More

House wine at 7.95 was acceptable. The blue plate special at $18 was acceptable. Maybe it was just a Sunday night but a little less glaring light, a more publike atmosphere would be appreciated. Chef clearly doesn't understand how to cook fresh fish so avoid that. Stick to pub staples.

Loved my Irish stew. Casual dining with a sports bar/Irish pub mix that is comfortable and reasonably priced.

Been to this restaurant a few times and always enjoy the atmosphere. Irish stew was fantastic but cottage pie was just alright (needs some spices). Service staff always friendly and accommodating. We'll be back!

I've heard many good things about the Irish Embassy Pub & Grill. We went there this past September for an early dinner and were told they have the best fish & chips. So, we both ordered it and it was very good! Two large pieces of yummy battered fish and really good chips. On the downside (only downside), it was... More
