We had our dinner here at the bar - limited menu but great food - portions are big. The service was just okay - had to ask for drink refills several times - we were older than the regular crowd - maybe not hip enough to get attention from the staff??

My husband and I were seeking a bite to eat before a concert at the Great Hall. There is a lot of gentrification in this area of town and with eyes rolling at the beautiful hipsters out and about we popped in here for a beer and some snacks. They were busy and clearly were expecting to be busier as... More

Great service, a good selection of drinks - even thought it's a bit Molson group heavy - lovely food and a top track of tunes makes this place a cool spot with a good vibe.

It is a very small cozy restaurant with a great night life environment. There isn't much on the menu and I find the food there a bit pricey. I was feeling some Indian food so I ordered chicken masala (the meal was delicious considering it wasn't an Indian restaurant). Would go again for the bar but not for dining.

I have no idea what happened to this once-wonderful restaurant! Our recent visit was a nasty experience. Staff were rude and food was terrible, over-spiced slop. Servers were poorly dressed with food splatters on their shoes. Place was filthy. What a shame!

Corner pub feel. I was in casual dining mood. Noticed that the whole menu had veggies on every plate. I was like.. Pub and veggies.. Ok. Ordered steak, mash, amazing the veggies even better. The cook did there best to make a cheap steak taste really good. Kinda feel like someone with that much skill at flavour wouldn't order a... More

One glimpse of the Kitchen and I was out of there. Nice bar, so for drinks most likely OK, but I was there to eat (I didn't).

I came here with friends on a Friday night for drinks only. The bar has a great atmosphere, trendy people and wide drinks selection. The décor is beautiful and very fitting with the Queen West vibe. I would definitely come here again

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.
