Great location if you are downtown and looking for a place to have a pint. The Guinness is awesome and there is lots on tap to choose from. I had the burger which was incredible but my partner said his chicken fingers were average. Rumor has it the fish and chips and lamb stew are to die for. Decent price... More

We dined in here once but found it very noisey and not a nice atmosphere to eat a meal in. The food itself was ok but expensive. If there was a separate dining area it would be better. If you like a rowdy pub and just want a beer it could be ok for you....

I don’t normally write reviews but myself and a few friends came here last weekend to watch the All Ireland semifinals and had an excellent experience! It’s hard to find a place in Toronto that does a great pint of Guinness, a lovely Irish breakfast and showing the GAA. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our large group,... More

We were in Toronto for one of the All Ireland semi finals which we desperately wanted to see. To ensure that we didn't miss the match we walked around Toronto on the Saturday to ensure that we located a bar that would be showing it. We asked in The Embassy and were told that they were showing the match the... More

My husband I were in town for the weekend, and walked from our hotel down to the Pub. We were a little surprised by the interior, it didn't really scream "Irish Pub", but it's not like we're experts or anything...just our personal opinion. We ordered a drink each, and some Irish Nachos. Drinks came quickly, but the Nachos were a... More

A friend persuaded me to abandon my prejudice against Irish pubs and we dropped in here. It is as intersting as watching paint dry. As for the Guinness very overpriced and badly delivered.

Ive recently been to Ireland and this isnt it. BUT it was pretty inside. Old marble like many of the old places in the financial district of toronto. Guiness is good but not as good as having it locally. I swear, it has to be a different formula in Dublin...ANYWAYS...back to this place. Music is good. Relaxing after doing some... More

So loud we could not even visit. Food was only so so. the ones that ordered the fish and chips loved their meals. One of order of irish stew was OK. The country pie was terrible. Had to pus so much ketchup on it and season with black pepper that I felt like I was eating mashed potatoes with ketchup... More

We visited the Irish Embassy on a visit to Toronto Sat August 2nd. We were walking from our hotel on Dundas street to the Rogers Centre for the 1D concert. After having walked awhile without anything in sight....we came upon the Irish Embassy and took a chance and went in! My 11 year old daughter is a chicken wing connoisseur... More
