“Fantastic food, great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended to us by a local we met at the street earlier today, he said this place is a hidden gem. We decided to check it out for dinner, and truely this is a fantastic place. Food was really delicious, a fusion between asian, canadian, international food in a great way. So tasty and at a very reasonable price. Local beers and few but great wines. Would recommend this place to anyone going to Toronto.

“You've got some Irv”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

I need to say a little something about a new gastro in the cabbagetown area of Toronto. The Irv has landed. Great local beer selection, and absolutely fantastic quality of food. This area is known to vacuum every last penny out of your pockets when it comes to drinks and dinner. The Irv has answered to that with very reasonable prices for some of the finest quality food and beverages I've have had the pleasure to enjoy in the hood. Every day has a special. My favourite being Sundays where all pints of fabulous local beer are $5. As well as bar rails for $5. Unheard of value given the quality and location. The staff are knowledgeable, fun, and down to earth. The Saturday and Sunday brunch is fantastic..and begins serving at 9am. Not noon which seems to be the norm. During brunch Caesars are 5 bucks and coffee with a shot of Baileys also 5 bucks. Ample patio to enjoy the summer months. The good stuff goes on and on. If you find yourself in Cabbagetown, you will be guaranteed an excellent experience at this gastro.
