The food was average. The location is a bit off the beaten track. Nothing special to make an effort to get to.

What drew me in the to Turf Lounge was the beautiful historical building it is located in. The bar is stunning with sky-high ceilings and the original brick of the building peaking through. But then I tried the food, and I was blown away! We tried the beet salad, fried chicken, and fettuccine... the fettuccine was served with an egg... More

I love this place and can't figure out why it isn't packed. Its an off track betting location affiliated with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. The bar is gorgeous with lovely high ceilings. The food is great. The entrees change but get the short ribs if they're on the menu. Had many meals here. When in doubt, have the... More

Recent changes at Turf and those who dine here will enjoy their meal. The secret is the new guy in the kitchen. Tom Brodi who is a top chef in Toronto who has just landed at Turf. Sure you can bet on horses but that is really not the reason to go. It is all about the food now. Ask... More

Great drinks and atmosphere here! Went here with coworkers and enjoyed an excellent variety of sliders and appetizers! Enjoyed the succulent lamb sliders with delicious cheese and many other great dishes that you should try here! Don't remember a very large beer selection but this may be part of the company package that was bought for our holiday party, and... More

This was the first place I went for a beer in the city and I have always enjoyed a visit. Good range of beers, good service and decent food. Not to mention excellent sports coverage! Great for a business lunch or a beer after work as they can certainly turn food around quickly whilst maintaining quality!

I have been to this restaurant many times and have always had the grill meat (various choices on the menu, each one as delicious as the other). It is done to perfection and never have had a problem. Service is excellent and am looking forward to my next lunch Mio...

Visited Turf for the first time for lunch. Very good atmosphere and service overall, the only reason for the 3 starts is based on the food I ordered. I ordered the fish tacos and was surprised to see what I got. It was 3 individual lettuce leafs' with 3 small pieces of fish on each. I was surprised at seeing... More

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.
