The Irish Embassy takes great pride in its dedication to a centuries-old tradition of hospitality unique to the Emerald Isle. This magnificently restored heritage site - one of Toronto's first banks - is now home to an enchanting Old World ambiance and standard of personal service and cuisine echoing a commitment to excellence without rival. Conveniently located in the heart of Toronto's financial district, the Irish Embassy is extraordinarily flexible in its multi-purpose design. Not only a warm and inviting setting for the after-work crowd and personal dining, it is recognized as one of downtown's most dynamic venues for upscale cocktail receptions, social celebrations and corporate gatherings.

First visit to Toronto for a Concert Weekend!

Me and my wife came to Toronto to see Rush and stopped on our way to the show Friday night at this busy Irish pub. We were seated in the bar area and was waited on by our great waitress "Erin". Even though it was very busy and we only came in for a quick drink before the show "Erin"... read more

This was place kinda pricey compared to other restaurantsin the area. Simple menu with costly prices. Long list of whiskeys though!

This was our first trip to Toronto. We were lucky enough to discover this quaint "Irish Pub". Our server Erin was very knowledgable about the menu and the city she loves! She was spot on with the food/beverage recommendations. Plus she answered our shopping list of questions about the great city of Toronto. All in all great food and service,... More

We were looking for somewhere to watch Ireland v Scotland and as 3 Scots decided to go to the Irish Pub. Soccer was on multi screens and we had lunch whilst watching the match. Food was great and good selection of beer. Result was a draw so everyone left happy.

I love to stop by this place for a bite and a beer or more after work. The staff is super friendly, the service is great, the food is amazing. Their beer selection never disappoints and the giant tv screens are perfect to catch up the game.

This building looks really awesome from the outside--beautiful old architecture. It was also right across the street from our hotel. We were starving after getting off the train and essentially bolted to the first interesting-looking place around, which was the Irish Embassy Pub. The inside of the building was also cool. The overall atmosphere, though, left a bit to be... More

Wide selection of drinks and the menu is well diversified. Nice place to have a pint after work and to eat a bunch of calories!

Stopped in for drinks. It was very busy because of a concert that was in town but the bartenders were attentive and on their game. We did not eat there.

My friend and I were in TO for the day. We have walked by this restaurant a few times and it is always packed so thought we would try it out. We sat at the bar (just planning on only having a drink and leaving) and we ended up having dinner and staying a few hours. The bartenders were fun;... More
