We went to Prohibition for a double date night and had a great time. It's always lively, and the ambiance is cosy and like an upscale neighbourhood pub. The Mac & Cheese is rich, herbed and lightly bread crumbed - get the real bacon bits added on, it's delicious! The beef ribs didn't fall off the bone but were delicious.... More

This may be the best martini in Toronto. Not to mention, the gluten free options are delectable. Pork belly.... awesome salads, fresh and delightful oysters. and a Happy Hour. Nice vibe in the place.

Visited during "Hooch Hour" and appreciated the happy hour prices on beer and wine. Had the fish and chips -- a good deal for the price. Some of the prices for other dishes I found a bit on the high side. Busy place but good ambiance. Overall pretty impressed, I would return.

My partner had a filling cheese and chili poutine for an appetizer. We both opted for the fish and chips with duck fat fried frites. The frites were delicious. The halibut was properly cooked but spoiled by far too much batter. A good fillet like the one on offer would be more enjoyable if lightly coated rather than encrusted. Please... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the menu at this original venue. Staff were funky yet friendly and professional. Food was fresh, made to order, reasonably priced. Will make a point yo return again so. Lovely to see an independent venue catering yo all tastes and diets with no cynicism or arrogance. Thank you!

If you crave great wings I suggest this place for the smoke house, chicken lollipops! At 3 bucks per pop it may sound a tad bit expensive but each one is worth the 300 pennies!

My second visit to Prohibition was as good or better than the first. The poutines are fantastic, and the place lots of interesting items on the menu. Good attentive service.

Went for a few drinks with a friend and sat at the bar. Friendly staff provide good service, and the place has a nice neighbourhood bar feel. Which technically it is, so well played Prohibition. A selection of great quality sensible Ontario microbrews (no #drainpour here) as well as very well made cocktails will keep your liver happy, and a... More
