We stopped here for a late meal after the game and were pleasantly surprised by the quality late on a Sunday night. Food was exceptional and the staff were great! Asiago Chicken Sun Dried Tomato Pasta is making my mouth water right now!

Beer Cheese soup perfect for a meal on a cool day, and the location was perfect for a lunch meeting. While it might be more of a sports bar feel at night, it was a great lunch spot with volume levels that still allowed for conversation. Also a great patio for dining al fresco. Food was good. As was the... More

Food was warm at best and unappetizing in appearance and taste. Had the tuna bowl which consisted of 4 small pieces of tuna, rice with under cooked peas and carrots.

They make the chicken fingers, fresh not frozen. Delicious every time! Their bruschetta appetizer is also very good, the bread is different from a few years ago but still tasty. Quick service if you want to run in for a quick bite before a game or show.

We were only a few people in the restaurant, but still we waited and waited and then waited a little longer. It's not that the staff wasn't friendly, but we had the feeling... Wow, guests?! What should we do with them? When we finally got to order, it took quite a long time even for drinks and when these arrived,... More

... But the service is a little slow; don't get me wrong, great people workin' in it!, it's just that it was kind of crowded. Food is totally fine; if u are into it, ask for the chicken fingers. Anyway, ENJOY IT!

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
