Comfort Food
Bannock is cool, confident and unapologetically Canadian. Centrally located at the corner of Queen and Bay in the Hudson’s Bay flagship store, Bannock offers a warm and inviting space for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Bannock's honest approach to food is rooted in familiar, wholesome ingredients that are reflective of Canada's rich regional and cultural diversity. Dynamic and playful dishes like the decadent Duck Poutine Pizza and the iconic Arcadian Court Chicken Pot Pie are rounded out by a variety of other classic comfort dishes. The cocktail list is fun and cheeky, while the approachable wine and beer list have a clear Canadian focus.

The food and the service is good. The only thing is the tables close to the side door is cold in winter when there are customers coming in from the street.

I arrived 10min early and was told I could not sit at a table (entire dining room was empty). Poutine was mediocre and nothing else on the menu looked or sounded appetizing. Many items were vegan which I didn't anticipate. Bar and waitstaff did not communicate and I almost got charged twice for my terrible Moscow Mule.

Location, location, location. This is a better than average spot in a great location in the downtown core. The server was nice though missing in action at times. I will be back again when the occasion suits it.

We order 2 salad for two vegan guest who accompanied us ,the quantity was not consistent between the same order served on one table. One veg salad was missing avocado, perhaps the order just had handful of lettuce pieces. Value for money is pathetic for salads. Although I was happy with Grilled chicken burger I ordered, but due to overall experience and dissatisfied colleague whom I took out, I am giving one star.

Food was ok, drinks were meh. Service was mediocre. Waiter was very distracted and wandered off mid conversation. They were polite but not overly present or helpful. Probably won't be back.

I was disappointed and shocked to receive an email from Open Table stating Bannock informed them we did not show up for our reservation. We indeed did show up at the reserved time and date!!!!!

How’s rly the service was lacklustre. But is was busy so it seems the restaurant was understaffed. I could barely get a drink when I wanted to order and multiple food items came out incorrect.

Fish cakes were amazing as was the chick pot pie (as usual). Service was very slow and it was hard to get a hold of anyone. Very disappointed they removed the pierogi poutine from the menu to replace it with a 'meatless' chili fries option - seems silly when all the ingredients for it (tater tots, pierogis, poutine, etc) are still available on the menu and the item was already vegetarian?

We visit Bannock as part of our annual Santa Trip into the City each year for a family brunch. Each year we have loved the food, ambience and people. Sadly, this year was was a disappointment.
I understand they were busy but our brunch order, which was fairly simple....took over 45 minutes to arrive-It took 15 minutes after we sat down for someone to come over. Parts of the order were incorrect with food missing - They offered to make the missing food but by the time that came, we were finished and we had to send it back. Some food was cold, some was warm-Obviously some if it had been just sitting, waiting. Our server was the gentleman who was also tending the bar and the poor guy was on his own and run off his feet- We had to wait a long time for service and follow up- Not his fault, he was swamped. Such a shame.
Noisy, cold by the Bay entrance....Our one day brunch was not what we expected and essentially a waste of time.

Food and service was great but extremely noisy in the restaurant which made it almost impossible to have a conversation. It’s a shame as this seems to be a common complaint for restaurants. They just don’t give enough thought to acoustics which would make the whole experience So much more enjoyable.

Low score for the disgusting state of the bathrooms which to me is telltale. That and a steak that came to the table very well done from the heat lamp which was redeemed with comp'ed drinks. Food is good, just good. There are better options in the hood for same or less. Mercado, Lena, Richtree Market to name a few.

The fries served with the fish & chips, and put on the roast duck poutine pizza, were poor. They tasted like McCain or Cavendish frozen straight-cut fries.

Please cut you pizza or give pizza cutting scissors. I found it difficult to cut with the knife provided. Therefore it was difficult to eat.
