Party at Quinn's
We celebrated my husband's birthday party with a dinner party of 7 people. Although there was no kid's menu, the kitchen accommodated my son with a meal from their lunch menu. They also pizzazzed our carry-in ice cream cake by cutting and serving it with flowers and drizzle, to make it look special.
The servers were very courteous, and the atmosphere was good for all.
I enjoyed the prime rib, which wasn't overcooked, and others liked the New York strip loin. The BBQ ribs were best. Our seafood appetizers were impressive, and meal sizes were good portions.
Parking was initially an issue, but across the street on Queen Street under City Hall was very affordable underground parking...cheaper than parking at Four Seasons on York.

A good (not great) steakhouse
The food was good, but I was surprised that a 'steakhouse' only offered 3 steak choices. Absent as an example, was a rib, or boneless rib. Also no veal chop. The service was friendly and efficient. Great wine list. Reasonable prices round out the package.

A friend and I had met in
A friend and I had met in Toronto to catch up having not seen each other for a year so we were greatly looking forward to our reservation at Quinn's, as we were staying at The Sheraton Centre and thus did not have to venture out. For the most part it was a wonderful evening. The service was fabulous - I was sorry I did not get the young lady's name but she was efficient and attentive. The food was very good and the only drawback was that as the evening got a little later there was a larger table very near us who became quite raucous and noisy. Definitely detracted from the upscale, intimate atmosphere I felt would be their signature. Perhaps it is trying to cover too many bases? Cozy fine dining? romantic atmosphere? sports bar?

Dark & Hidden but the food is GREAT
A rather dark, not well lit Irish pub & steakhouse in the Sheraton Centre but the food and service was excellent. They have the largest cocktail list I have ever seen. The food service was quite fast. We had a New York Steak which was charcoal grilled exactly the way we ordered it and it tasted heavenly (Ontario AAA dry aged beef, 10 oz. for $34.00). It came with garlic mashed potatoes and perfectly cooked mix of vegetables that still retained their crunch and colour, incl. the aspirations a.k.a. broccolini. I went "all duck"; the home made duck liver pate was excellent ($12) and for the main I had succulent crispy duck leg (confit) on Israeli couscous, fig reduction sauce and veggies (special). Too bad it's not on the regular menu.($20)

One of the best steaks I've had. Worth every penny! Excellent service and a nice atmosphere.

Quinns - Great Service, Good Food
We ate at Quinns prior to seeing Wizard of OZ. We ate from the Mirvish Theatre Menu, which included a salad or soup, several main course choices and dessert.The food was very good. Both my husband and I had the Steak Frites and it was delicious.But the best part of the whole experience was our waitress. She was absolutely amazing. The most friendly, hospitable server I have encountered in a long time, yet not so overbearing that we could not enjoy our meal and each others company.We will return!
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect for date night
My girlfriend and I go to Quinn's more frequently than we should probably be able to afford but we love everything about the restaurant. We also, always, have great service in the bar area and dining area. I'm an Irish national and my girl is Canadian but its the right balance of authenticity and Canadian style service at Quinn's. thank you all for your continued fantastic service and food

Ordered flat iron and filet mignon. Portions are just right. The filet is so soft that it kind of melts in your mouth.

Very Good Steak Dinner
Overall, a very good meal. Nice that there is a wide choice of wine by the glass when the table doesn't want to order a bottle. The steaks were delicious, apart from the chef having laid on a little too much salt. Nice-sized helping of veggies and garlic mashed potatoes as well. Side of mushrooms was good, as was a pre-dinner Caesar salad. Service was very good until it was time to get the bill, and then we had trouble finding our server, even though we told him we were heading out to a show at 7:30. But we got it all straightened out okay.

The food was amazing. We went for Summerlicious - I think the dessert could have been a bit better but over all great time. I had the : Corn & Sweet Pepper Chowder, Bacon-wrapped Tenderloin (med), Double Chocolate Fudge Pecan Brownie
Hot chocolate sauce
My husband had the Endive & Rocket Salad, Garlic Rib Steak, Lemon Poppyseed Cake
Mixed fresh berry compote
We both agreed I got the better meal overall. Service was great.

Summerlicious 2013 Lunch
I went to Quinns for Summerlicious lunch and I was very satisfied with the food. The portions were generous and the flavours of the food were just perfect! I stronglly recommend the Steak Frites. I have to say that everyone in the table who order this were amazed with the texture and flavour of the steak. I would definitely go again for either a special ocassion like the "licious" or regular time. Looking forward to try the regular menu.

Good Summerlicious Find
Took advantage of the last day of Summerlicious and had a late dinner at Quinn's. Probably the best rib steak I've ever had at a Toronto area restaurant. Good service and great food. Nice ambiance for an "old school" restaurant.

I don't have red meat very
I don't have red meat very often but when I do I want it to be perfect. Me and my companion both had the fillet mignon special and it was just that- special. We savoured every bite of this grilled-to-perfection steak along with an interesting mix of veggies and flavourful potato mash. Brianna, our waitress, was attentive and pleasant but not hovering. We were there early and the restaurant was quiet.

We went to Quinn's before
We went to Quinn's before going to a play at The Ed Mirvish Theatre. The location was centrally located and within walking distance. The steak was delicious as well as the Lobster Mac and Cheese. The service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and I will definitely go back.

Not your average Steakhouse and Bar
The food, service and ambience all exceeded expectations.

Succulant -- loved every bite!
I can't wait to go back and have the prime rib again. Worth every penny. My friend's steak was a little overdone, but he enjoyed it nonetheless.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were pleased about the service.It was well -timed and our server was very friendly.We didnt think the portion of the meat was so big.Our steak was cooked to our perfection.We are definitely coming back.

Good beer, wine and delicious food
I highly recommend Quinn's Steakhouse. The prices of the entrees are on the higher end (at least for my current pay grade) but they were well sized and delicious. The lamb shank is probably the best item on the menu (although no one at our table ordered steak).
Good beer selection as well.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food...done to perfection!
We ordered the prime rib which was done exactly as ordered, medium rare and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! The accompanying veggies were crunchy, with the exception of the garlic mashed potatoes, which were creamy. Service was attentive and professional. I would recommend it and would return.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
In The Sheraton Hotel. Somewhat noisy but it's a pub after all. Great Food. Prime rib was good as well as Salmon flown in from Ireland.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

Terrific Service and Quality food
We had a lovely dinner at Quinn's the other night. My Friend has the 16OZ. steak special - HUGE but cooked to perfection as requested. The meat was tasty and of good quality. The Lamb shank was tender and tasty, however, the Veg. were undercooked - rawer than al dente (especially the carrots!) the barley risotto was poor - dry and not creamy as expected. However, the waiter took the time to address my concerns and offer to replace the Veg or provide something else. They brought mashed potatoes that were fabulous and tasty. Over all, a very very enjoyable experience.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better Than I Expected
I walked in with low expectation. The service is decent. The food is better than I expected. I ordered prime rib. It is perfectly done. It tasted better than the prime rib in Baton Rouge. My wife ordered mushroom pasta. It was not the pasta I can cook at home. It is not a pub. It is an hotel restaurant, which I totally forgot.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu and service
My guest and I ordered something outside of our usual meat selection (Beef Pasta) and it was great. Reliable service and they are very good in making sure your reservation is ready, especially during the busy lunch period.

Good steakhouse in T.dot
We checked out Quinn's Steakhouse which is in the Sheraton downtown Toronto.
Good solid place -- the staff are knowledgeable about wines (our server recommended a McManis Cabernet Sauvignon, which we very much enjoyed).
My husband had the mussels -- the sauce was great -- mussels were very small, however not much you can do about that -- it's always a toss up. I had the Warm Mushroom Salad which I very much recommend. So flavorful!! We both had the Rib Eye and it was cooked perfectly and served with garlic mashed (which were not too garlicky) and seasonal veg which were still a bit bony -- which I prefer -- not a big fan of mushy vegetables!
The place was hopping but food was served hot and timely! Check it out!

Love the flat iron steak
We have had the same meal several times, and truly enjoy it. I would guess that the rest of the menu would appeal as well.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We began with the Charcuterie and cheese board. A great start to a lovely dinner! We both had the Steak Frites and we're not disappointed! Often, a flat iron steak can be a little on the tough side or gristly but these were very tender and seasoned perfectly. The fries were perfectly done and the lemon aioli was amazing! The portion size was perfect. In fact I regret we didn't have room for dessert. All in all I would definitely come back to Quinn's!

Good comfort food classics
A great steakhouse with elegance and style. Food is well prepared and presented. Extensive drinks menu - especially single malt and Irish Whiskeys.

Great food and service, rowdy crowd
Went to the dining room an anniversary dinner and had a wonderful time for the first half of our night. After appetizers a drunken group of half a dozen middle aged conference attendees from the hotel proceeded to cause a disruption without any reprimand of the staff. I would NOT go back to this establishment.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food better than the service
Had a nice dinner with my girlfriend. We were a little worried when we came in the door as Shopsy's is essentially the same entrance and we weren't sure we were entering a nice dining establishment or not. As we walked to where we were eating we were relieved that it was in fact a nice restaurant. We found the food to be excellent. The service was ok, but could have been a lot better. I didn't get asked once by our server if I wanted a refill on my beer or water. All in all though a nice dining experience.
