“EXCELLENT service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This restaurant had amazing service. Our waitress was attentive, funny, and sooo nice. It was traditional pub style bar, so the atmospere was comfortable. The food was good, not crazy good, but nice bar food. I had a stacked chicken Quesodilla with a salad. The spicy mustard sauce on top was the best part. The boy had a smoked meat sandwich, which tasted unique, and broccoli soup which was a little intense for me. Unfortunately I ordered a Watermelon Mojito, which I thought would taste a little more like watermelon. Bleh, did not like it, did not complain though. I leave no drink behind!

“Great place to grab a drink after work!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This place is great for a drink after work, a lovely patio (that can get a bit too crowded) and good food. They are also extremely accommodating for company events!

“Busy, loud, good service, good portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

A lunch or after hours its a great place to go.
Unless you want to talk attentively. Thisplace is loud.
Food is hot, well prepared bar food with a splash of indian/asian fare. The brits love their curry, basmati rice and pad thai type dishes.

Beer list is great. Service is attentive.

Some of the waitresses kilts are shorter than I remember at catholic high school. but complaints Attentive staff were all top notch.

Thubs up and an extra pint.

“Visited the Duke on Robbie Burns Day”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Went to The Duke of Devon for lunch on Robbie Burns Day. As expected it was crowded, but we had reservations and were seated promptly. Didn't order the haggis as I'll be having it this weekend, but settled for a overcooked cheeseburger and very good green salad. There is a good selection of single malts and beer on tap. Our server was slightly overbearing and pushy.

“The Duke of Devon treats all guests as royalty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

On a recent weekend trip to Toronto we had the pleasure of having dinner at the Duke of Devon. We made reservations online and the General Manager emailed and confirmed the reservation. Knowing we were coming from out of the country, he went out of his way to make sure the staff welcomed us which they did beyong our expectations. The menu has a good variety and there is an ample selection of beers. We opted to have a bottle of wine with our dinners which were wonderful. The restaurant staff is very professional but also warm and friendly. As we ate late that night, the restaurant wasn't overly busy and the staff made sure everything was perfect for us.
We would definitely make plans to visit the restaurant again on our next visit to Toronto. The atmosphere is charming with the pub feel and the food and staff are great! Spiros, the General Manager, is a great asset for the company. The restaurant can be a great stop for a family or for a romantic dinner.
