Only 1 staff member upfront to seat people. Once we got in, service was attentive and friendly. Burrata was overall very good but a little different than what I expected (less garlic bread and more honey bread). Not many options for vegetarians in the mains ..or actually I don't think there were *any* which is disappointing however made up for in the starters selections. Their daily $5 beer special is a good deal. Gets loud quickly.

Excellent recommendations from the server motivated us to share a charcuterie and cheese board with a dark "roasted" beer. Our guests choices were less successful, mostly because of grotesquely thick bread on French toast and "Reuben" (surely must be served on rye?). They left half their plate unfinished before heading off to a matinee of Hamilton.

Batch is a nice spot and the food has been great in the past. This time however the advertised special was not available, the replacement took longer than expected. There was 8 of us and we got our food at different times. We didn’t get any food delivered to the table for an hour. The staff and manager did what they could and were helpful but the food was not hot when it finally arrived and my steak was over cooked. It was truly disappointing and not up to their usual standards.

the lamb burger was outstanding, moist flavourful (i few too many charred red onions for my liking but no big deal)

Overall, everything was a okay.... However we were hoping to get a table in a cozy room with lights. But it was closed for private event which we didn't see throughout our stay.

All so great!!
Appetizers - Duck, Fries, Calamari were superb;
Mains - BATCH burger, Crispy Chicken sandwich, Lamb Biriyani, NY Strip Steak, Short Ribs all were outstanding;
Service was really great - attentive without always being there and when there, making sure everything was right.

Although we enjoyed our food here during Winterlicious, we felt very pressured to complete our total order at one time and then rushed through. We arrived at 6 and before 6:30 we had eaten both the appetizer and the main! too fast- not time to relax and just enjoy a bit of our drinks. We told them to slow it down- we were not in a huge rush. I would try it again as the food was tasty.

BTW Our waitress needs to be taught the proper pronunciation of several Scotch names.

Went for winterlicious for a workday lunch. Food was really tasty, we all enjoyed our meals, and presentation was lovely, but service was quite slow. Especially for a prix fixe menu, we waited 20 minutes for appetizer and 20 minutes for dessert to arrive.

I had visited Batch House during Winterlicious 2020.
I ordered the:
Potted Shrimp - SO GOOD.
Bangers and Mash (bratwurst sausage, creamy mash, apple gravy) - the portion size of this dish was very filling, it came with two full size sausages on a bed of mash drizzled with apple gravy. Unfortunately the sausages lacked flavour.
Brownie sundae (vegetarian) vanilla ice cream, whiskey toffee, popcorn - The desert was a little disappointing as I only received crumbles of brownie underneath the ice cream... I felt I was just served a scoop of vanilla ice cream instead.

Overall, I'm glad I checked this place out only during winterlicious and not on a regular day... not really worth it.... or maybe I would go back just for the potted shrimp :)

Winterlicious lunch was good. The parsnip soup was delicious, but scant. I had trout which was good and an enjoyable slice of blueberry cheese cake. No coffee or tea was included, so I ordered a regular tea à la carte at the ridiculous and unreasonable price of $4.00! The $4.00 covered a tea bag and hot water.
Great wait staff.

Fantastic beer on draft (Urbock - probably the most delicious beer I've had in years). I also loved the mushroom toast.

It's a nice addition to the downtown core for pre-gatherings at night or post-work fun.

Winterlicious menu was expertly handled by who every created the menu and the kitchen, especially the Winter Caprese, Braised Beef and Passion Fruit dessert.

FOH didn't do much to add to the experience, but did keep the restaurant moving at a good pace on what was clearly a very busy night. Understandable as it was the first night of winterlicious.

All in all we've talked this place up with friends already and look forward to returning.

Arrived on time and was seated immediately. My server suggested a beer and his decision did not disappoint. Great start! Our table of 3 had oysters and wings for appetizers and also a burger, chicken sandwich, and bangers for mains. I didn't hear any complaints. Everything was delicious. Area at the rear was vibrant but not too loud. We could definitely carry on our conversation over the energy of the nearby tables. Overall, a wonderful evening out with friends for food and drinks!

The overall ambiance of Batch is homey and cute. Our server was super friendly and helpful. The brekkie sandwich is TO DIE FOR. Both my friend and I had it and both agreed it was the best breakfast sandwich we have ever had! The side salad it comes with is tasty too. And you can never go wrong with a mimosa and screwdriver at brunch. This is the perfect spot for brunch in downtown Toronto and I highly recommend. Cheers!

I’d only recommend for someone who likes a casual place with lots of noise. If you want a dinner where you can hear each other across the table, try elsewhere. Food was okay.

Good selection of food. Today’s lunch was a bit rushed but that was because of large groups Christmas lunches. Didn’t want to get left behind in the kitchen. Once food was served. Drinks and time moved slower. Which we preferred. Would try it again or suggest it to some other people. Initial smell is very hoppy. But it soon goes away once you get used to it.

Great food with friendly and helpful service. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately and offered a sample of the evening's wine special - which we loved and ordered. The sea bream was delicious and served with perfectly balanced sides - no fries nor rice in sight!

The Batch was a lovely way to start a an evening out with friends before going on to the theatre. Will definitely return again. Oh! And it was very reasonably priced!

We went to Batch for brunch but also enjoyed the beer and mimosas. Service was great. I ordered the pancakes, my son had the French toast and my husband the batch breakfast. Everything was delicious. I even had a side order of the salmon pastrami which was unbelievable I’ll definitely return on my next trip for the pastrami sandwich I just could eat both at one visit!!
