    Dined on 11/14/2014
    After four visits we are finding the food and service 'hit and miss.' On two occasions, we have experienced fantastic food and good service and quite the opposite on the other visits with less than average food and service. Seems like when it gets busy things go downhill. When the restaurant is full it is almost impossible to carry on a dinner conversation and a respectable dB level which can probably can be attributed to the lack of any soft surfaces anywhere in the restaurant, either in the form of acoustic panels or seating. The entire restaurant is big and open with industrial decor, and feels more like a bar or well decorated cafeteria than fine dinning. It seems to have become a gathering place for friends and families and can get really loud. The menus is small, primarily pizza and salads, with little option for personal tastes in pizza toppings, although they have some winning combinations. They offer a very limited selection of beer and wine. Dinner for two with drinks came in at around $90.00 including tax and tip, a but pricey for comparable dinning experiences in the area.

    It is a great neighbourhood restaurant. The pies are tasty (could have been a bit warmer when they arrived at our table). Because of the high ceilings and large space the noise level is extremely loud. I would recommend turning off the music as I found it very distracting when trying to have a conversation with my dining companions. We waited quite a long time for our order. Other customers who had arrived after us were being served. When we inquired about our order, we were told by our server that it was because we had ordered appetizers, which was a salad. We would not have minded eating our salad with our pizza or at least been given the option.

    I've been to Queen M on multiple occasions since it opened and because we live quite close by. Went with the family two weeks ago and had a great time so I went back with my 4 year old this past Friday. It wasn't very busy when we arrived at 6:15pm but took almost 10 minutes before we could flag our waiter for water. From the appt to the pizza, it was painfully slow and despite assuring me that our pizza would be another '2-3 minutes', it was another 15 before it arrived. Even the guests next to us commented on how long we were waiting, esp. with a young child. Queen M, you have such great potential and I really want to love you but you make it hard with your service and food quality.

    Don't understand why this place is so popular. The pizza is just okay. The service was poor .. particularly the bartender who failed to greet us and offer us a beverage as we waited for 20+++ minutes for our reservation. The noise level was obnoxious Okay I guess if you were in a group Calamari was awful Mushy with powdered seasoning. Don't know what else to say Do not recommend Will not return

    Our server was very accommodating and was helpful in making recommendations and dividing the bill up for our larger party. I found the menu to be interesting and the food was good quality, and as described when it arrived. Portions are large, and good for sharing. We had a prix fixe special, which was good value for the money ($29 for starter, pizza and desert). I wouldn't qualify it as impressive or over the top in excellence, but in all, it's a fairly good neighbourhood place to get a pizza on a weeknight.

    This is the place to go in Bloor West Village for truly outstanding pizza. A bit loud, and a very limited wine list, but the wines are well-priced and the two I have had there were of high quality. But the pizza...I dream about that pizza. Be warned that if they bring you the bread (I think they do this only if you have to wait a long time for the pizza) it is also spectacular, but you will fill up on it quickly. Reservations are a must - it's very popular, so it you just show up, you'll have a long wait.

    Pizza is great. I think the menu had changed since we had last been and I missed some of the former topping combos. However, you can customize so no prob. I hate to say it but the mushroom salad would be so great if the mushrooms were breaded and roasted. Our server Justin was super - one of the best we've come across. Truly delightful.

    Open style kitchen showcasing the authentic wood fire oven and high ceilings give this place a casual, comfortable feel. They specialize in pizza and have a nice selection of Italian starters and sharing plates. The salumi and fromagi plate was a favorite with something for everyone to enjoy. Calamari was so lightly breaded and full of flavour. Each pizza is unique. Don't plan on customizing your own, they are delicious the way they come, although it took a little while to decide on the right one. Our server, Wayne was excellent and answered all of our questions without skipping a beat!

    We sat down, asked to change tables after being hit by plastic swords by those kids only a parent could love. Then we had to listen to a 2 year old's screaming tantrum while the indulgent parents ignored it. Of course, this was how I wanted to spend my Friday evening. We couldn't hear ourselves talk over the screams of the kids. We lasted 15 minutes and left to have a lovely dinner a few doors down at the Mad Mexican. Don't go here unless you're prepared for this. This is the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in. Been here before. Always loud but add those screechy kids voices and it's impossible

    There are many restaurants doing wood oven pizza these days, but Queen Margherita Pizza puts together combinations and unusual ingredients that just seem to rock the palate. I have tried several now and have really enjoyed each one. We start by sharing an appetizer, because the pizzas are just so wonderful we did not want to share....other than a bite or two. Highly recommend.

    The pizzas and salads were ordered were great. You could tell that the mozzarella was fresh. They could have been a bit more generous with the fresh basil on one of the pizzas ordered. The noise level is terrible because of the awful acoustics (this used to be a bank with high ceilings). Without anything to absorb the sound it is difficult to carry on a conversation. Consequently everyone is yelling at each other trying to be heard and compounding the problem. Not a pleasurable dining experience.

    I had booked reservations for my family. When we got there, i was told there was no table available. We waited 30 mins for a table to clear up. We ordered 2 margherita pizzas plus two pieces of bread. The pizza was so-so, nothing special - not satisfying at all.. the bread was way two expensive for what it was, and again nothing special. After our meal, i asked the waiter for a dessert menu, and he said he knows it off the top of his head. He gives us three items, we choose the last one. A tiny (as we found out later) slice of chocolate cake (that tasted like frozen mousse) with a tiny scoop of ice cream and some strawberries. The dessert was like everything else, so-so. And how much was the dessert? $12!!!! Just as much as the pizza!

    This is our first time at the Jane location. We used to go to the original location in Leslieville quite often but have not been in a while. Chose the Jane location as it was closer for the friend we were meeting for dinner. No real ambiance to the restaurant. Kind of a cold white room. The Leslieville location is much more welcoming. Our server was fantastic though. Very friendly and helpful. Good balance of checking in and taking care of us. He was just so pleasant. Did not get his name though. Menu has changed since we have been to QMP. And really not for the better. Prefer the original menu and pizza offerings. Crust seems different here and I have always loved the crust at Leslieville. I know that sounds weird but we do!

    Went there for QMP for our anniversary. The food was good and the fixed price menu was worthwhile but the meal did not stand out as a great meal. It didn't make me want to come back. If you want good wood burning oven pizza and don't want to make the journey to Pizzeria Libretto, this is a fine alternative but it is definitely not as good as Pizzeria Libretto. We always crave Pizzeria Libretto

    We loved the food but we find it takes quite some time to get your pizza, especially if you order appetizers. Even though pizzas only take 90 secs to cook, the takeout business is so strong, your order can take some time to make it to the line. Once it comes though, great flavours on the pizza.

    As we were an early arrival, the reservation was not a problem, and my son and I enjoyed the dinner quite well - 8 year old boy hoovered back his pizza blanco (not technically, but I can't remember the name). T'was good for him (waitress advised that he would not likely enjoy the chili pepper, which was a good and appreciated heads-up). I enjoyed my namesake Margherita, and we were comforted by the pace and hospitality. Nice place, which I'll return to, and would recommend to all and sundry. Kudos.
