This was one of my favourite restaurants in the Bloor West Village. Fantastic food; good service; corkage fee Mon - Wed. HOWEVER, Dr. G IS NO MORE. Sadly the notice on the windows shows they have ceased operation. Like a phoenix bird, a restaurant called the Sparrow is to open in its place. We look forward to their opening.

I will never go here again and I make a point of sharing my experience with others. The server we had was aloof and did not return with our drinks or take our order for over an hour. We followed up with her to inquire and she was rude to us. I was shocked because my friend politely asked she... More

I've eaten here quite a bit over the last few years and always find the food very tasty and nicely prepared. The portions are also generous which may account for the name! It does a bustling business on the weekends with locals knowing a good brunch when they meet it. Nice fresh fruit is added to most plates, the coffee... More

Have always had a decent meal here - been here many times for brunch, lunch and only once for dinner - but the service is always a little lacking - they just always seem so busy and indifferent. I have been here with and without kids - I personally haven't found them that kid friendly so prefer to go here... More

True to the experience you'll have at a doctor's office there's a ton of people in the waiting room and they're just pushing you through. If you're coming here with friends and you want to hang out and catch up be aware that when the meal is over, they want you out! I've been coming to this restaurant for brunch... More

I took my sisters for brunch to celebrate one of their 50th birthday. As they don't take reservations I couldn't make arrangements for a surprise cake beforehand, so I spoke to the hostess as I followed her to my table so my sister wouldn't hear. It worked perfectly. I don't recall our servers name but she was excellent. We had... More

We were in Toronto staying with good friends who suggested Dr. Generosity for brunch before we drove home. We have been here several times before and what is a constant is the great service, attention to detail and good food. Yes it is small and can get very noisy when busy. If you are coming with a group make sure... More

Dr. Generosity is a neighbourhood favourite in Bloor West Village. I first discovered it for brunch, and while packed I was still able to get a seat at the bar. After a couple of brunches I popped by for dinner. Consistently high quality from the kitchen. I would describe the food as traditional pub fare with some creativity, high-quality ingredients...

Good location and very nice place. I went with my boyfriend and we both ordered the Black Oak Nut Brown Ale and it was tasty and served cold with a friendly smile. I ordered the Grilled Fresh Salmon with lemon dill sauce and it was delicious. It was very busy and there isn't much wiggle room but the whole place... More

We enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant. Food was delicious and portions were typically large. The lasagne was wonderful along with the service.
