Lunch here with 3 friends who really had a good time with the beer selection and the waiter was very knowledgeable about them all it seemed. My drink was a spicy Caesar and it was great. All the food items chosen were great and I really enjoyed the burger. No patio but the windows were open on a fantastic day... More

Visited this restaurant on a number of occasions. In the summer the windows are removed for an enclosed patio style, comfortable space! In the winter it's still very cozy! The food is always excellent, no matter what you choose. The salad with goat cheese, chicken pot pie or salmon are all great choices but they have specials of the day... More

Friends from out of town came in for a special exhibition at the AGO. Someone at work had recommended Sin and Redemption as a good place for lunch - agree 100%. Extensive beer list - both on tap and bottled. I had a Belgian beer Liefmans Fruitesse which was very light and fruity - great on a hot summer day.... More

Four of us went for lunch after a Sunday visit to the AGO. Excellent beer list. Good service. All 4 entrees were well received. Portion size is good. The frites are crisp. An excellent way to end a visit to the art gallery.

Straight to the point: do not order any food there because they are simply horrible. Obviously it is the kind of place that keeps the food ready and in great quantity to be heated up by microwave when it is ordered. My wife, me and two friends had the same problem and embarrassment (rice with shrimp and curry and stuffed... More

We went for a late lunch after visiting the gallery which is very nearby and our meal was excellent and the service was excellent! Don't think for a moment that this is just a bar or pub - our meals were fine dining quality at a very fair price. We sat in the big open windows and it was lovely!

Very Euro in the beer catalogue do don't expect local stuff. More than 80 on draft and in bottles. Had Flemish meatballs with sour cherries. Staff had a London vibe. Tucked off a corner by AGO

Stopped by for lunch with friends before going to the AGO. Just a block away from AGO across from St. Patrick Catholic Church. The front windows open wide allowing for a street side experience. In keeping with the theme (sin & redemption), my friend had the burger and I had the quinoa salad. Both were delicious! The burger was generous... More

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
