We attended a group gathering in the 3rd floor Poets Pub. Great decor and atmosphere and we had two servers at the bar. While it was crowded, service was very good. The food was cocktail apps served by the staff who moved throughout the crowded room. They did a very good job, very attentive and friendly. The food was good but I can't speak to value as someone else was paying.
I have eaten in the pub on a few occasions and enjoyed it very much. The patios/decks are great when the weather is nice.

If you are headed to a TFC game and want to go for drinks before hand, I would reco the Brazen Head BUT arrive at least 2 hours before the match. The entire bar will be filled with red shirts and a good crowd.
During the middle of the week, they have daily specials. The appy soft tacos are amazing and so are the burgers. It's quite pricey for a pub, but then again it is located in Liberty Village. There are alot of reviews about bad service, but every time I go there, the service is fine --and the food comes out extremely fast.

A group of 7 of us tried to get a table outside on the patio and we were put on a waiting list for an hour and still the man who was suppose to get us a table could not accommodate us for our large group. Very unprofessional and I would recommend finding another place in the area with just as good a patio.

Up & coming neighborhood, lots of young people,, God awful service. We had a group of 10+ people. We didn't all show up at once, first to arrive had to ask twice for service at the table. Then the manager came over and rushed through taking orders like we should know what we wanted - we had no menus! The drinks took forever to arrive all night, even though most of us had ordered two at a time. They sent free appetizers to save face, but pretty much last time we saw any type of service. We even tried reminding bar that waiter had put in order, and people were waiting more than 45mins for drinks. We were advise - "No you weren't waiting that long". It's a beautiful newly renovated space, cost millions; they should invest in training wait staff & operations manager.

I run a brunch group in Toronto. The restaurant has three patios, two of which are upstairs, and the restaurant would not let us sit outside, even though they had two outside patios with nobody on them. On a nice day, my group wanted to sit outside, and the restaurant refused to accommodate that request, which was very reasonable. Their reason was that they did not have enough staff to have us sit outside. The restaurant knew about this reservation for WEEKS, and did not get things right. We had been to Brazen Head several times previously and things went well, but after today, it is obvious that this restaurant does not know how to accommodate the customer, and I would NOT go back considering that arrogant attitude of the restaurant and it’s parent company, FAB Concepts.
