I had a fantastic evening
I had a fantastic evening here! This is an excellent restaurant for foodies and anyone who likes to try multiple items without being overly stuffed. It is the perfect spot for a romantic evening with a loved one or even for a large group because of the fun atmosphere. The different flavors in each dish as well as presentation is definitely something worth coming to sample. We had a very friendly and knowledgeable server who took amazing care of us. We are definitely excited to come back again.

Excellent Food and Value
Myself and 3 girlfriends had reservations last Saturday night for dinner. The waiter was very helpful with food recommendations. The cocktails were delicious and the wine list was good too. We decided on a prix fix of 3 tappas each to share for a total of 12 for the table - we doubled up on some items (shrimp & sliders). The food was amazing and we didn't leave hungry. The price was reasonable as well. The only negative was that our reso was for 8:30pm and when they were starting to get ready for the "club" aspect of the night it was very distracting when they were moving chairs, tables, etc all around us, making us feel rushed.

Great Food - Great Service but....
First off I was a little tentative to go to Bloke & 4th having read the mixed reviews. My wife and I were there this past Saturday evening and had an amazing meal.
First impressions - WOW - is it ever dark in there! I could not read the menu very well and thanked myselft for having read it thoroughly online before arriving. I commented to our waiter about 30 minutes in that I thought my eyes had finally adjusted. He joked that he had developed sonar!
The food was amazing, and the portions were much larger than I expected. I had the Tuna and Salmon Tar Tare, Braised Veal Meatballs with polenta, and Bangkok Slaw. My wife had the Lettuce Wraps, Sliders & the Churros. I would recommend all of these dishes.
I'm sure that we will return.

Bloke & 4th had great music and food and service. Our waitress was excellent. Although not necessarily the fault of the location, but it was full of women. Being a woman myself, this was fairly discouraging. The ratio of women to men was easily 5-1. I think this was partly due to at least 2 bachelorette parties. Any time one gender significantly outnumbers the other in this way, tends to affect the overall ambiance. I found that people were very into themselves and their groups and mingling was to a minimum. We left early. It was a great dining and experience and I would give it another go, as perhaps I just picked a bad night.
Be mindful that the creme brulee has three bite-size portions, also in tapas style. A bit of a letdown, actually.

Incredible flavours and incredible eye candy with each plate! The General Tao chicken wraps were delicious and fish tacos crunchy and spicy. My wife found the sliders a bit on the medium side but I felt they were great. We agreed the butter chicken meatballs were melt in your mouth heaven! The wine list was a bit brief and pricey however the quality offered was excellent.

First Impressions last...
The food was fantastic! The experience was unique and the atmosphere is great! The service could have been a little more attentive but overall a great experience!
It was my first time there and it won't be my last! Summerlicious menu was wonderful! #fooddudes #win

The food was incredible. We had gone for summerlicious, definitely worth the money. I would go back every day if my budget allowed for it!
The atmosphere is very chic. Halfway through out meal though (around 7:30), the music volume got very high, and it became very hard to hear the person sitting right across from you. Other than that, it was fantastic.

Great food and incredible service. The Asian inspired menu is fantastic for small bites with tons of flavour. Be prepared to share as this is a Tapas style restaurant.

Great Summerlicious experience!
I decided to try Bloke & 4th with my boyfriend for a Summerlicious dinner date. I had only heard of Bloke & 4th's reputation as a bar, but I would certainly recommend it to friends for dining as well. I loved the tapas style menu, and every course we had was amazing. I had the shrimp, the fish tacos, and the creme brulee. I felt the Summerlicious menu was diverse and the portion sizes were good (often I find Summerlicious portions to be kind of chincy). The service was great and we didn't feel rushed (many restaurants seem to rush their customers out during Summerlicious). We will definitely be returning to try more items on the menu. Thank you!

Skip the dessert
We went to Bloke for Summerlicious. All our meals were fantastic until we got to the dessert which was underwhelming after having such amazing courses beforehand.I know in future I won't bother ordering dessert

AMAZING service! Our waitress gave us extras of things we loved (ie. the bread), made great recommendations, and was super friendly and fast.
Food was delicious... I don't think anyone in my party wasn't pleased with all 3 of their courses.
Restaurant had a cool feel to it and would definitely make for a fun bar to hit up later at night.
All in all, great night! The only hesitation I would have coming back would be $$... It is worth the price, however I would go in with the mindset that you will be spending more than the average restaurant.

Awesome surprise - summerlious
I had read the reviews and was hopeful. The meal exceeded my expectations . Service was fast and very attentive, making sure that our table was cleaned after each course and water glasses refilled . The best restaurant that I have been to in a long time . Highly recommend it.

Small place but packs a punch when the lights turn down. Went there for dinner and then stayed later for some drinks at the bar. Beautiful staff. Met this one girl Sara who went out of her way to get me and my friends some drinks despite it being so busy at the bar. Really appreciate when someone takes time to notice the little things like that. Great spot to visit and will definitely do so again in the near future.

A must try
Went there to celebrate anniversary. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Only thing is that they never offered or gave a special anniversary cake even though it was mentioned to them in advanced unlike other restaurants we've been to. But other than that, everything else was superb!

It was amazing
Me and a friend of mine decided to come here.. The decision we made was a good one. The food was amazing and so was the wine. We are dinner in a friendly atmosphere, our server was great very friendly and even snuck us free dessert. Around 10pm the venue was subtly transferred into a club. The music at first was mostly techno which at that point was the only thing ruining our night. But after a quick word to the dj and he switched it to hip hop and rnb.
I will definitely be going back. And I recommend this place to anyone who knows how to have a good time and in not looking for a good time to find them !
