So sad that this amazing restaurant is closing :( It's been our go to spot since moving back to Toronto three years ago, and our visit did not disappoint. Geoff and the wonderful staff will be missed!

The food has me coming back over and over again, I love the Donairs and molasses bread. So sad to hear that it's closing. This was definitely one of my favourite restaurants downtown. Everyone that works here is so friendly, love the vibes.

Extremely fresh ingredients make for a delicious meal, very creative dishes. A little on the expensive side, but generally similar to good Toronto restaurant prices. In a lovely neighbourhood (Roncy), with attentive service and a treat on Mondays -buck a shuck oysters.
Bravo to the team. i am so sorry they are closing down soon!

Portions are a little small for doller value- example the cauliflower dish is delicious but$$. 4 scallops and small portik of sauce again delicious but 32.00- suggests that you share this plate but really barely enough for 1.
East coast authenticity is great. Some side options of green vegetables and or potatoes would be great.

Another outstanding meal at Hopgood's! We wanted to squeeze in one more dinner here before 2017 and so happy we did. The fried oyster dish with bacon was exceptional, and they still had the tempura cauliflower on the menu! a wonderful evening in the middle of the holiday craziness

With such a small menu, you think they would at have all items available or at least tell you when they run out before ordering. It also took at least 30 min before they took our food order and it was a little discouraging when we saw a VIP table arrive after us and have complimentary drinks and amuse bouches brought over before our order was taken...

Some really tasty food. Maybe more mayo than I wanted, but I think it was a nod to the Maritime tradition, so who am I to say? The great wine and ambience were probably my favourite things about the restaurant. Would be happy to go back.

Hopgoods has really gone down in quality. The food and service used to be superb. Now, strictly average at best and not worth our time/money for dining out. The food was bland and immediately forgettable on every count other than the chocolate bar dessert, a dessert feature from the opening of the restaurant. The servers were fairly nice and friendly but seemed resigned to hawking a mediocre product. I was embarrassed as I picked the restaurant for a group of friends. The owners should do an overhaul. Until then, I won't be returning.

Great service. We were seating right away and offered water and drinks. The waiter told us all about the specials and, explained in detail everything.
I have food sensitivities and they were able to accommodate my needs.
