Nice surprise,looks like pub food rocks

Corner pub feel. I was in casual dining mood. Noticed that the whole menu had veggies on every plate. I was like.. Pub and veggies.. Ok. Ordered steak, mash, amazing the veggies even better.

I have no idea what happened to this once-wonderful restaurant! Our recent visit was a nasty experience. Staff were rude and food was terrible, over-spiced slop. Servers were poorly dressed with food splatters on their shoes. Place was filthy. What a shame!

One glimpse of the Kitchen and I was out of there. Nice bar, so for drinks most likely OK, but I was there to eat (I didn't).

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
