Went there for a late meal with a bunch of friends and it was very good. We really enjoyed the patio, staff was very good and the food was great. We got the fries and on there own they'd be great but you can also get them with a special shredded cheese and spices. They were fantastic. The sushi is... More

Brilliant steak dish and caring staff, nice roof top bar but I was a tad disappointed it didn't meet Melbournian roof top bar standards - based on decor and crowd on a friday summer evening.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch on the side patio earlier this week. We had the shrimp sandwich and burger, both were delicious and would bring us back again... however, our server Jessica (Jessy?) was what put us other the top. She was attentive, knew a lot about the food, and seemed to geuniely care about our experience.

Starting the day right. We had brunch and a pitcher of Sangria. I had "The Canadian" first picture to your left. Eggs, homemade sausage, bacon and potatoes. It was a good portion and delicious. My brother in law had "Drake Benny" picture on the right. He said it was delicious, the Sangria was also very refreshing and good. The restaurant... More

I arrived at the venue on a Friday night around 9:45pm for a table for 6 on the patio. When we arrived at the hostess stand downstairs they notified us that the patio was first come first serve so we went upstairs and tried to put our names on the wait list. The hostess at the rooftop had a horrible... More

We did not eat here, just popped in late night for a drink. Very cool spot with tasty drinks that are not cheap, but are worth the experience. Unique cocktails, for sure. I also liked that there was a good sized patio!

The service was ridiculously slow. The food at best was mediocre. It took 25 minutes to get three cups of coffee at the end of our meal. We won't go back.

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
