We had a late dinner reservation (9:30pm due to international flight) on a Thursday night and received superb service. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided fantastic recommendations.The food was very fresh and tasty. We all the hamburger because we were all very hungry. They even threw on a fried pickle at no extra charge because we... More

This is THE PERFECT location for groups. I am the event coordinator for a large insurance company and had the pleasure of working with the Turf Lounge to host an evening dinner for my team. I have been arranging these nights for the same group of people for several years and I was surprised to receive so many comments from... More

As the Executive Director of a not-for-profit industry group, the choice to use Turf Lounge as the venue for our event was easy! It is right in the heart of Toronto's financial district, which provides easy access for those working downtown, and a central location for those who are coming from the periphery of the GTA. In addition to the... More

We went out with colleagues to have a nice Summerlicious lunch. The food was good, although portions could have been a bit bigger. I've ordered - a roasted beet appetizer: it was ok, nothing special - a steak + fries: Steak was absolutely fantastic! In Medium - very soft and juicy, perfectly done. I recommend. this one. - a blueberry... More

I had to book a corporate dinner for my company. Janette at the Turf Lounge was extremely helpful in delivering exactly what we needed for our evening. From a private room, to set menus, to betting vouchers and even a tutorial on the horse racing experience for our patrons, every detail was brought up which made for a seamless event.... More

This is in effect an upscale sports bar with lots of screens, betting and decent food at decent prices. Lots of private ish booths for serious discussions. The pulled pork sandwich is recommended.

Wood paneled but spacious seating gave diners immediately a respite from the tempo of Bay Street. Not crowded and unrushed during peak lunch hour, my lunch partner and I had a very good chat undisturbed for 1.5 hrs. The food is less forgettable if they didnt try so hard to insert trendy Asian touches in many items. e.g., chicken salad... More

Enjoyed a nice visit here--definitely a hang-out for businesspeople. I liked the atmosphere and the wine/drink list (upscale as one reviewer noted). Downsides were slow service, a limited # of appetizers, and the price of appetizers. Biggest downside was the cramped seating.

Randomly chose this restaurant. Food was very good. Colleague enjoyed Mac n Cheese - appeared to be home made noodles. Fish and meat choices - lots of variety. Service was prompt. Quiet enough to talk and conduct business.

Wonderful bar and restaurant - probably the most upscale 'sports bar' you'll ever eat in! My event went off flawlessly - food and beverage service was efficient and extremely polished. The staff from booking to closing out were extremely professional and knowledgable. A great location - that I will certainly be using again - highly recommended.
