we presented our company to a bkge firm on Bay Street, and they preordered from your establishment. Wonderful idea, as we witnessed all the brokers wolfing down your remarkable sandwiches. The platters were sensational being fruit and veggies.

You now have new customers. Signed Keith Bullen

The crisp fries at the Corned beef House are hands down the best ones ever. The smoked meat and corned beef are moist and salted just right and probably the best we've had in Toronto. Our server Jermaine's jovial nature made the whole meal experience much more enjoyable. We will definitely be eating there again.

The two star rating is for the service, and particularly for the way Jermaine tried to salvage the situation when he found out we had not enjoyed our meals. Unfortunately we had used a Groupon, so giving a refund or discounting the bill further was not an option -- I'm sure he would otherwise have done so, as he seemed genuinely concerned about our feelings.

Now the negatives: this restaurant appears to share a kitchen with the separate establishment below, and definitely shares washrooms. The stair landing leading to those washrooms is black as night -- lights are definitely needed here! Kitchen service is rather slow at peak times -- not a good place to go for an express lunch.

The menu mentions only bottle beer choices, making no mention of the much more interesting draft choices. You'd have to get up go to look at the bar to see those. The sandwich platters are a generous size, but that's not much consolation when the beer is the best part of the meal. My dark rye bread tasted fresh and flavourful, but my partner's onion kaiser was bland and tasteless. I had the same reaction to the Montreal smoked meat which to me was woefully under-seasoned compared to my favourite Montreal delis. I should say in the Corned Beef House's defence that I have never found a deli anywhere in Toronto that could get it right for my taste. The smoked turkey had no smoke flavour at all and tasted like the sort of turkey roll you could get at any grocery store. The potato salad was served in generous quantity, but likewise not very interesting in flavour. So, while I appreciate the efforts of the staff to rectify the situation, I honestly couldn't say that I would ever plan to return here.

We had a really great dinner at the Corned Beef House. The bread was really fresh, the meat yummy and the fries were the crispiest and best tasting we have had in a long time. Jermaine took care of us and he is funny, quick and very personable. We will definitely return!!
