Jazz Bar
Jan 2020
We enjoy coming to this jazz bar for the ambiance, music, and drinks. It's busy enough but not packed and noisy. The staff are great. I would only recommend not eating here (at least, not the vegan food) because it is not very good on the several occasions we tried their meals. Chickpea burger tasted like uncooked dough on the inside, tofu and beans is a little overwhelming and too sweet. We enjoyed the Thai Fries though... We'll be back to enjoy the bar scene, but this time with stomachs full!

Great Bourbon Bar with Live Music in Toronto's Little Italy
Jun 2019 • Friends
The Emmet Ray has been in Toronto for nearly a decade. They have a huge selection of bourbon's and other interesting spirits. The staff is super knowledgable and they get impressively talented Jazz and fusion bands on a regular basis.

If you are visiting Toronto, make time to check out the west end of the city and hit up this cozy institution.

Enjoyed coming here on a Sunday evening. Allowed our group of 9 to reserve. Burger is good, add the Halloumi. However, sides like fries don’t automatically come with. The baked Mac n cheese was also tasty! Topped with bacon. Stayed in the front so we could chat. Nice atmosphere. One waiter, Andrew, working but was Efficient and friendly.

Good Music, Good Drink, Good Food, GREAT VIBES

I could see this being a chill spot to frequent with a date or someone you want to have a conversation with. The place is quiet and all you hear is the jazz music playing. On the night I went, it felt like the Jazz version of a "Swingers" bar scene without the crowded bar. If you find the music to be too loud in the room it's actually being played in, just seat yourself closer to the front of the bar. You could just drink and listen to music all night, but the food was an added bonus. The waiter talked me into trying the burger with halloumi (cheese), and it did not disappoint.

Good:
-The Emmet Burger was tasty
-live music
-good vibes
-expansive whiskey menu
-the waiter was informative and friendly

Bad:
-no fault of their own, but it was very warm inside

Best food ever and great music
Sep 2017 • Couples
My husband and I went on a date here and was so pleasantly surprised that the food was amazing and the live music played was a very talented performance and at a volume that doesn't kill your ears. The menu is three pages of whiskey to choose from too. ;) cheers!

An unexpected pleasure
Oct 2015 • Friends
I went to this bar for a whisky tasting (my wife says every days is a whisky tasting for me - boom, boom). The food was really very good, the beer chilled, priced and pulled at the level a chap expects and a great selection of whisky. The atmosphere is mysterious, perhaps more like a bar right in a student zone. If you are looking for a drop of decent whisky, this bar is for you!
