I came here with friends on a Friday night for drinks only. The bar has a great atmosphere, trendy people and wide drinks selection. The décor is beautiful and very fitting with the Queen West vibe. I would definitely come here again

We were here for dinner and we enjoyed it a lot. Coconut shrip prepared Thai style with phenomenal sauce and Lamb chops are something you have to try. There are other good dishes and we noticed that they are prepared with style and look very good as well. In the meantime, people at the bar were enjoying their time here... More

this place was great. I really liked the vintage look completed with gleaming subway tile. The curry fish and chips were some of the best I've ever had.

When we arrived for a 6:30 Sunday dinner, the restaurant was empty except for a couple of people at the bar. The tables looked worn and well used. We had, coconut shrimp, a salad, steak, and lamb between my wife and I, shamelessly sharing the different dishes. The shrimp sauce was fantastic and I attacked it with vigor while my... More

I never would have guessed it but this place has great food and an excellent menu. It's also a great place to have drinks with friends.

This is a great place to go after seeing a show at the Underground in the Drake right across the street. It's been crowded each time I've gone and there's really no luck getting a table unless you go early but none of that matters if you're looking for a great crowd and casual vibe.

Love the food here! I would love to work here! No greeting when you come in. The server finished her meal at the bar before approaching. Then she went for a smoke break whilst our dirty plates awaited. Dishes finally cleared... Was going to have dessert but forget it, why bother her!?

The food is excellent here. I've tried several dishes and never have been disappointed. I would say for the price I think they should have a bit more food on the plate for certain dishes, or lower the price. It's great food though. This place is great for a date or to meet friends for a drink before you go... More

Last evening I went out to celebrate my belated birthday. One of our stops that evening was The Beaconsfield on Queen West. Normally a great place to have a drink and listen to some music. It seems that things have drastically changed, and not for the better! A Friday night in the big smoke is a busy time... But is... More
