Good and reliable... except for the brownie

This place has been a steady place for me to eat. After events at Ricoh or after work, I have always enjoyed eating here. My only gripe is their "deluxe brownie". It was very underwhelming. I got it during their Winterlicious deal and it was small (not much larger than a two bite brownie), it... read more

I always like to leave my comments, short and sweet. Here is my experience of Brunch. Pros - Rustic, beautiful and tasteful decor. -Reasonable priced menu. - $4 Caesar bar 👍🏻 -Service at par. -Every day of the week, they offer a $4.50 drink special! Can't beat that in Toronto. Cons - Ordered the omelette of the day. Little greasy,... More

I don't usually write a bad review but this restaurant was so bad I can not help it. We arrived with our son & we're looking forward to trying this restaurant. We were greeted & seated outside within the first 5 minutes of arriving. We waited 15 minutes before our server came to our table. She did apologize for not... More

Not sure if my review will even be noticed but here goes... First time here, waitress placed us into what could be described as a nice quaint "booth" like corner on the patio that gave us some privacy, away from the other tables. Sure the waitress didn't have two menus, but this place was so busy and clearly adorned by... More

This isn't anything special, but if you are attending a TFC game or any event near Exhibition place it's worth going. Good is pub --so nothing exciting. Very good location though and patio is great for people watching!

Perhaps this pub is satisfactory for couples, or small numbers but I have been here twice - once as a party of two and the second as a group. Both have been less than satisfactory. I won't go back and would not recommend. Food prices are high - pear & spinach salad with chicken pieces $19 - airport pricing. We... More

Went here after we got off the Go train at exhibition before we headed to the oddball festival at the amphitheatre. It's in the heart of liberty village. Our waitress was very nice and able to help one of our gluten free friends with menu items. Because of the busy restaurant, service was a bit slow and we are lucky... More

Had a great time before a concert with some friends. Food was a 7.5/10. But what makes my review a 10/10 was the service and knowledgeable wait staff. Too many times do I find myself at restaurants where the staff doesn't know anything about the menu, and can not give me a solid recommendation. Adamos gave us a fabulous wine... More

Took a short walk from the apartment we are renting into the heart of Liberty Village. Seating out on the patio was like a café in Chelsea, NY. The calamari was delicious and the Nacho with ground beef was great. Drinks were weak compared to the mixed drinks in the US, that little splash of extra. Waitstaff was pleasant and... More

This place is in trouble...last few times I've been there it's very quiet, meanwhile Williams and the Local are lined up out the door. Why? Take a look at the menu & bar prices while considering this is supposed to be a 'pub'. $9 a pint, $15 for a salad, $15 for plain nachos, and no steak-kidney or cottage/sheppards pie... More

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.
