Location is near the theatre district, large beer and drinks selection, interesting food offerings. The server said they were popular for their sandwiches, got the Fried chicken sandwich… The flavours were really good and unique, but execution was off. It was way too well done and dry. Overall a small cute spot if you’re looking for pre-or post theatre drinks.

Amazing once again. The food never disappoints and the server, Aaron, went above and beyond. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable and made sure we were all enjoying ourselves. Can’t wait to return.

Glad we made reservations. It was quite loud and difficult to hear my friends beside and across the table from me. Angelina attended to us with really good service. A little on the pricey side.

Enjoyed the beer, so definitely go for some of their in-house offerings. The food, however, was very disappointing. The fried brussel sprouts came in a bowl half-filled with Hollandaise sauce, which we had to spoon onto a plate. My wife had a salad in which the avocado was essentially a guacamole paste. The "chips" of the fish and chips were more like potatoes, as they were very thick and not crispy. Don't normally write negative reviews but the menu sounded great and it was unfortunate to have what sounded like promising dishes so clumsily rendered. However, the place had a cool vibe and I've heard the burgers are very good, so maybe try one of those with your beer.

We have been to Batch 3 times in the past. We really enjoyed our previous times. This time, the service and food quality was disappointing. The server was nice but it seemed much more like bar service as opposed to restaurant service. There wasn't much checking back on how things were going. We finished our meal and she took the plates away but never came back to check if we wanted dessert(which we did initially but gave up). I had to flag her down for the cheque. My wife and I had the steak and my daughter had the risotto. The risotto was extremely small portion. Both of our steaks had quite a bit of gristle so I would say they were sub-par quality. I did, however, enjoy the Batch beer. Overall, not a very enjoyable birthday dinner for my wife.

Came here for buck a shuck in Wednesday’s. The oysters were great and their toppings of horse radish and tabasco hot sauce mix was great too. I also tried the buffalo cauliflower, which tasted like all dressed chips. I loved my meal and will come back here again.

Enjoyed your restaurant, food, ambiance and service very good. With the exception of the key lime dessert, which was a deconstructed key lime pie? Did not enjoy the dessert, nor did the other guests.
If you keep this on the menu, recommend that the wait staff advise on what being ordered. When we looked at the name key lime, we thought we were getting pie. Would not order this item again. Thanks,

I like bringing friends and colleagues to Batch for lunch and dinner as nice restaurant and food but find it a bit pricey for more frequent visits.

Had many Batch burgers in the past and always enjoyed but today it was over cooked and we waited too long for our server to check in on us and bring our bill. Usually really enjoy Batch so this was unusual. Still plan on coming back.

Very good food but brought the wrong order twice. Once is understandable, but twice is a little excessive.

But definitely would still go back.

The place is nice. Drinks are good, environment is cool. I'd go back, but would not order the curried cauliflower salad again. The presentation is bad, very little food and taste wise it's not that great. So that disappointed me but the Paloma cocktail was nice and strong. Service is okay -- I'd give it a 7/10. But I did have a good time there.

Food and service was good - menus was a bit light in terms of selection, maybe expand the menu or change the items up a bit periodically .

Great selection of beers

With the exception of the beer being served warm initially everything was great. Food was amazing. Our server did replace our beer with cold once we pointed it out. Friendly, charming spot. Would go again.

The food was delicious and our server was very helpful. We had a lot of questions, and he answered them all with patience. Went in a big group, about 10 of us and restaurant was very accommodating :) highly recommended and would definitely visit again!

Amazing customer service & great good! It took a little while to get the spoon for my soup, so they apologized & I was given a free desert. The summerlicious menu was phenomenal ! Great southern cooking with a Toronto Twist :) the 5$ beer was also a great bonus.

There were 4 of us for summerlicious 2019. We had a wonderful and pleasant Irish waiter. Ribs were dry and over cooked and we weren’t fans of what they called “dismantled” key lime pie. Would prefer a traditional sliced pie. The key lime part was smeared around the desert bowl.

It was extremely loud in the restaurant!

We dined as part of Summerlicious lunch and it was not what we expected.

My kale salad was wilted/old and presented with a dressing splattered on the side of the dish that made the dish look like leftovers from another guest’s plate. The others enjoyed their appetizer.

We were disappointed with the service. It took very long between courses and server got dessert wrong but at this point it was late and we needed to leave.

I had the burger and fries, and I can say it was a very good dish.

I was really looking forward to the lunch but left disappointed and wishing I’d picked a different restaurant. I want to give it another chance but am hesitating to do so.

Very nice server. Didn’t mention Summerlicious which seems like a gap. Beer and wine selections were terrific. Particularly delicious lamb biryani, lamb burger and tomato nectarine salad (there were no nectarines—chef replaced them with plums—still great). We were too late for dessert which they probably should have told us during the meal when the kitchen was still open. Would return and recommend.

The server was rude. They took our water bottles quoting local law, stating they would return them later. Instead, they threw them out, and were unapologetic about it. The food took forever to make, and was not very good. The waitress ignored our table several times when serving other tables, and split the bill incorrectly. Everything was unprofessional and ruined the night.

Went for summerlicious. Main course salmon is too sweet for the fish itself and too salty for the clams. Strawberry shortcake would be the hardest one I had in my whole life, and the strawberry they use looks like rotted.
