Had very nice lunch. Spent the day exploring Toronto and stopped in just for a pint. Ended up staying for a quick lunch. Food was great and prices were reasonable. Service was a little slow on getting the second pint to go with lunch but other than that all was good.

We visited at a special beer day. Pint for 5$ was quite nice. The food we ordered was good, but the plates were a bit to small. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We didn't realize there was not a restaurant at the Billy Bishop airport and found Banknote a close cab ride. They have a little patio set up outside with just bar stools. Nothing fancy but nice. We ordered chicken wings and nachos. Nothing fancy - very large nacho portion. The meat was slight over done but fine for pub fair.... More

Just finished eating here and the food was very poor! It took a bit of time to come out and I am sorry I waited it. The chicken wings looked like they held more grease than the fryer they came from! The nachos looked and tasted like an unholy mess!

My sister and I ate lunch late on a Tuesday. The place was empty so the service was quick and friendly. The World Cup was on every television (I counted at least 6 big screens). I had a burger and fries. Everything tasted great. The burger came unmade with a fresh leaf of lettuce, two slices of tomato, two rings... More

Where to begin? This "restaurant" is terrible and quite seriously the worst I've been to in this city, having lived here for more than 10 years. After being served a stead that had absolutely no blood when we asked for medium, we sent it back. The owner himself brought out the second one; this time is was pretty much right... More

My friends and I were in Toronto for a guys weekend and stumbled upon this bar after hitting a couple of lame spots. This is your classic local bar that plays good music, has a diverse group of customers (although that is Toronto) and a real cool staff. If you don't want to club scene, but still want to hang...

Pizza was like eating cardboard and inedible. It was covered in yellow old broccoli. Stick to bar food, other meals to pricey for what you get. 4 shrimp and a little linguine $14. But the beer was good
