One of our favourite spots in Toronto. Excellent food, impeccable service - friendly, charming, comfortable, engaging. The combination brings us back again and again!
This was a great place! The "bannodict" was delicious and unique, and our server Claire was lovely.
I used to love the comfort food at Bannock and often came for dinner before the opera. The menu now has fewer options that are of interest, and little that seemed a healthy choice. My friend, who always ordered the mac and cheese, was very disappointed. It was tasteless and had so much cheese that it became nauseating. My gnocchi was quite a small portion, and sitting in a pool of oil. I miss the old menu and hope that this encourages management to reconsider their offerings.
The noise level made conversation impossible. Our orders were not processed accurately and there was no attempt of compensation. The server was inattentive. Overall a truly substandard experience. Having dined here before a few years ago I was deeply disappointed and will not be back. I would deter others from going here as well.
Food was good but wouldn't consider it exceptional. Definitely a new twist on Canadian standards.
Bannock is very handy to the Opera, and the food is delicious, and service quick for finer dining. We go a number of times a season, and appreciate the well prepared food with a "Canadiana" twist. My gnocci this time were absolutely delicious. My companions duck poutine pizza suited his "twenty-something" appetite...not for the dieting crowd. Pizza of the day was "pleasant"...we've had more exciting things from the menu. Tuesday tall cans are a deal, which was appreciated by all.
With the notable exception of the host, the wait staff presented a welcoming environment and kitchen crew provided an excellent meal.
We found it cafeteria-like - tables crowded together, noisy.
Friendly but slower than they and we expected
Outstanding service for a birthday dinner. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating; we didn’t feel rushed or pressured. Would definitely make this one a regular dining spot. Thank you Bannock!
We ordered the Margherita pizza and the Kale Caesar Salad.
I would say the pizza was above average in flavour and the salad below average.
The server was attentive and professional and advised us of the drink specials we took advantage of.
Only 1 Unisex washroom out of 3 working. Not good and my wife had to wait about 10 minutes.
Pretty good comfort food. However one of the dishes at the table was over salted (shrimp fish cake ) .. the Beer battered fish and chips was excellent .. as was my friends burger
Went with a friend to Bannock for Sunday brunch....have been there previously but never before for Sunday brunch. It is fabulous!
$7 peach/mango or blueberry/pomegrante mimosa's (can also get them virgin if you wish).
The 'Eggs Bannock' is spectacular!!! As is my always favourite, free range turkey burger.
The only thing that surpasses the food is the service. Special thanks to Scout for making this visit so special and to the always charming Nick, our server.
Excellent service but limited choices in the brunch menu.
We booked with OpenTable about an hour prior...happy with our server and meal choices.
We have been to Bannock many times and it never fails to deliver a great meal. Service is quick and friendly. It is always a first choice when travelling downtown for an event.
Bannock was the best meal we had during our 5-day stay in Toronto. Our server was so kind and accommodating, and made great menu recommendations. We appreciated the amount of vegetarian options on the menu.
Great take on Canadian food and great service at a convenient location right by the Bay.
Always have a good meal and good service here. A place to bring visitors to show them a sampling of Canadian cuisine, or at least a good variety of options.
Our server kind of forgot about us after we got our food
It was utterly brilliant! the servers were impeccable and amicable. The food is absolutely scrumptious, to say the least! I would 100% recommend this place to anyone.
The service was exceptional. The food was very tasty, but the wine list was a bit overpriced. The shared dessert - S'Mores - was beyond amazing!
Really enjoyed the food and service. I would recommend checking this out if you're in the area. Much better than the mall food court!
The food was absolutely amazing and the serving staff was great. This was the second time at the restaurant and I would go back in a flash. This has become my favourite restaurant.
As usual, Bannock does not fail to satisfy. I’ll be going back soon.
We went because they featured a Maple Brunch - the cocktails were spectacular and the food was simply devine
Friendly, prompt service... food was delicious
Mapo Tofu Noodles were dry and not tasty. Duck Fat Potatoes also very dry.
This is a great foodie place. Not a fan of the ambiance. Quarters are cramped and it is loud.
Excellent food and fabulous service
The service was excellent, the food was absolutely wonderful!
As usual, the staff were friendly, informative and accommodating. We arrived late for our reservation due to a transit issue and had tickets to get to a performance. The server spoke with the chef to get our order placed as quickly as possible. At no time did we feel rushed and yet the service was prompt. Drinks and dessert were also made available in a timely fashion. As always, the food was fresh, hot and delicious.
The place was empty , but we were sat directly beside hostess area and the door , I was not happy being next to the noisey kitchen , feeling the draft from the door and people constantly circling our table, it REALLY ruined th experience for me. The service was okay, not anything outstanding or even common small talk, the server seemed like she didn’t want to be there. The food was okay, but a bit on the bland side , and felt like it needed something more to it, neither of us finished our plates, we weren’t asked if it was any good but if we’d like to have dessert which I found odd. All in all I was very disappointed in the experience.
Tasty food, lots of variety, friendly service and awesome coffee. Will come again, handy location!
My daughters and I enjoyed the mac & cheese, poutine, tuna tataki, and caesar salad. All were great! We finished off with the s'mores pie which I am still thinking about days later. The service was outstanding. Highly recommended.
My mom and I both had the smoked haddock special. I really loved it, finding it to be perfectly seasoned, however, my mother, a Brit, said the haddock was not smoked properly at all.
She said they did not fully smoke it, which should yellow the flesh, but instead used a smoking gun to only smoke the outer edge.
Loved the restaurant!! Great service. I had the breaded pork chop and it was amazing. My wife had the gnocchi and it was delicious. Will definitely stop in again.
Great service and delicious food
The staff were there when you needed them and not hovering when you didn't. Very friendly atmosphere. Food was good but portions are very large so be prepared.
Gnocchi and seafood quiche daily specials offered on March 7th were excellent.
