    We were really unlucky with the server and probably the kitchen had issues as well. We had to wait 45min for a cup of soup that was on the menu. Even if they had to do it from scratch, it would've taken less time. Also, waiter didn't check on us regularly and we had to ask him at least twice for whatever it is for him to do it. I like this place but we had a bad experience this time.

    I don't fault our server that day because she was pretty good for Real Sports. In general service is so slow as to be unacceptable. Waiting an hour plus to be served lunch should not be the norm in a restaurant frequented by office workers. I haven't been to Real Sports in a year for lunch for this reason and thought I might take our intern out since he'd never been. We returned two hours later and work across the street! Come on that's unacceptable. I'm just lucky my boss didn't catch us.

    $13 for 3 tiny pieces of chicken? Received with 'attitude' at the front desk; even though we had reservations. Hostess? did not even speak to us at all. Waitress was good though.

    I was extremely dissapointed with my experience at Real Sports. Having been many times in the past, I thought it would be a grea idea to bring clients out for a World Cup soccer match. However, waiting more than an hour and a half for our food was totally beyond acceptance and really annoyed our table. The waiter did indicate that he had "lost" our order which my clients found equally upsetting. To say that I will no longer be recommending Real Sports to clients or will dwindle my previously frequent trips there would be an understatement.

    food was good as it always is. Service was ok :( just wondering, we come to the Real sports Bar and Grill all the time for Birthday lunches at work ( there is at least one birthday every month) and I asked more than once if the bill for the birthday person can be devided over the people dinning but the answer is always no. Other places are able to do that, why can't we get that done here? thanks Sally

    I've always wanted to go to Real Sports but it's hard to find time to go there and it always seems busy. When I found out you can book a reservation online I decided to go on the first day of March Break. The food was good but came really quickly. My fries were cold but the waitress got me other ones.

  • Can't watch Olympics Elsewhere...
    Carina
    Dined on 2/19/2014
    I go to Real Sports regularly. On this occasion, I booked a table for a group three weeks in advance to watch the Olympics. The day of, when I got there I was seated on the top floor at a back room with a projector screen. I told the hostess that I booked well in advance and wouldn't have invited my group knowing that we would be in a side room. The hostess went on to tell me that nobody complains about being in this private room. The main reason I go to Real Sports is for the big screen in the main room. Even though they felt I was a complainer, the waitresses were attentive throughout our meal. The drinks take a while, but the cost of the food very reasonable for what you're getting. I'll be going back, but I'll be requesting a booth.

    It was family day and I booked on-line...awesome and easy! My request for booth table infront of BIG SCREEN was met. My family had an incredible experience....we had a terrific lunch while watching the CANADA vs SWITZERLAND hockey game. My kids were in awe! They said it was the best day after since we were just at the Aquarium in the morning and came to REAL SPORTS bar for lunch and hockey. Our food was delicious and service was outstanding!

    i've always enjoyed my favourite salad at RS - The Wembleton - so good. i never have a complaint when i go - though i do decide ahead of time whether i want a noisey atmosphere or not - sometimes i just don't. but most of the time it's a great place to run into people i know, and grab some great food and drinks (Love the Ceasar!!!).

    Had dinner prior to a Saturday night Raptors game. Its an amazing place for a meal or appetizers and a beer prior to a game. The energy was amazing. I would love to be able to stay and actually watch a game on the big screen. Looking forward to going back soon.

    Our order was very easy. We ordered 1 order of French fries along with some drinks. We received our drinks and were promised our fries but after 40 minutes of waiting we cancelled the order and left to go to the game. Pretty sad service this time around.
