Jack Astor's - Toronto (Yonge & Dundas)
In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.
But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.
We made a lunch reservation for 7 people to celebrate my daughters graduation from Ryerson. This was on Raptors Parade day and downtown was incredible over crowded. Despite the fact that the restaurant was at capacity with a 2 hour wait, we were seated immediately. Our waitress remained calm and attentive even though it was so busy. Great experience under the circumstances. Good view and fun time.
What an amazing experience watching the raptors game!!! Our favourite go to place!!!!
Great patio but we waited a long time for food and beverage.
Reservation was not even reserved when we got there and there was no table for us. We should them our reservation through OpenTable but there was still no room for us. Very unhappy.
Fantastic staff from front of house to back. Very accommodating to our group as it kept changing staff had no problem being flexible and responsive
Great food and service watched the Raptors sadly lose on big screens which were everywhere and atmosphere was so positive a great night out
Honestly, i love jack astors, but i have been disappointed this time with the service. I booked and called ahead of time to ensure the Champion's League final is being shown. The manager on the phone assured me i got a table infront of the screen. I arrive there and they tell me the game is not shown and they couldn't call me to tell me that because i have a 514 number? ... really?
Horrible customer service. We waited for an hour and half as they kept telling us we will be getting a table soon. Sure enough we never got a table and they did absolutely nothing to accommodate for us. Which left us to have to walk out and miss the basketball game. If you can’t get us a table tell us right away rather then making us play the wait game. I will never be back there again
First warm day of the Summer and it's perfect weather to enjoy Jack's 4th floor patio.
Thanks to GM - Jeff (Who runs a tight ship) and is laser-focused on customer service;
this was yet another memorable visit to this venue.
Excellent place to watch raptors games
Great food and great everything
Was not a busy night but food quality was very poor as if it had been.
Service was exceptional waiters are quick and kind I had a wonderful time definitely will come back again.
I’ve been to Jack Astor’s a number of times. It’s always a fun atmosphere with overpriced food and beverage. The service was very good once we found a seat but was disappointed with the OpenTable / JA partnership as I had a confirmed reservation for 8:15 through OpenTable but was then put on a wait list when I arrived. The greeter did a great job of finding my party a table quickly but definitely something that needs to be ironed out
Everything is excellent location service nice level especially delicious food
Our waitress, Ali, was nothing short of perfect. She was continuously checking in unobtrusively, she intuitively ascertained our needs and our problems and quickly rectified them all. The Mexican salad I had was wilted with an overwhelming amount of dressing and it looked like it was dressed an hour or so earlier. Therefore, I barely touched it. Ali promptly took care of it and asked the manager to remove it from our bill. She also saved us from the bottom of the keg serving of our favourite beer and waited until the keg was changed; with our permission, of course. They say a business’ most valuable asset is the people that work for them and are the face of the establishment. Ali proved herself to be exactly that; an asset that this establishment would do well to duplicate. I am sure you wish you could clone her.
Food came fast, the server was very nice and the overall food was tasty. Would come back again when I am back in Toronto.
I reserved through opentable a table for us but when I came there, the host was saying that the reservation doesn’t mean anything and we had to be put on the waitlist alongside the other customers who were already there. If it’s a first come first serve basis, then DON’T BOTHER PUTTING RESERVATIONS HERE. WE DID NOT RESERVE TO BE WAITLISTED!!!!!!!
Quick dinner after movie. Very reasonable priced food.
We are from Montreal but every time we are going to Toronto we go there
We had to sit at a long table with other patrons, which I was not expecting since I made a reservation. The food was great and service was good.
Beautiful view from the patio!
Ive been there a few times before and had a great time so yes, but if it had been my first time probably not.
Food was good. Service was good
First off, I love Jack Astor's and enjoying eating at this restaurant. It is my usual place to invite my eating partners. This particular occasion, a reservation was made, but one of the guests made an error and went to a different Jack Astor's (Front and York in Toronto) instead of the Dundas location. So I got to the restaurant and ordered a coffee with water while waiting for my guests to arrive. It was my birthday, so was very happy in anticipation. I received my coffee and water by another waiter. I received a phone call from one of my guests letting me know that they went to the wrong location. I thought it easier for me to travel down to them via subway, so tried to get my servers attention. After that, I went to the front where I explained and apologized and wanted to pay for my coffee. She told me I had to wait for the waiter to give me a bill. He seemed to be very busy and although he saw me standing by my table, he did not seem to interested in me. I even tried to get another servers attention, including the server who actually brought me my coffee and water. I offered to leave $5 on the table so I could leave, but alas, I was told I have to wait for the server. Finally, he arrived and gave me my bill. He seemed a bit hostile at that moment...maybe he was upset that I was leaving, or that I kept trying to get his attention. Anyway, I am sure he is a great server...but I was a bit dismayed at his attitude at this particular moment.
good service and amazing food at a great price! the view of dundas square on the patio was an extra perk
Made a reservation for six. Arrived and was told they would let me know when a table was available. Pointed out I’d made a reservation, showed them my open table confirmation & they told me a reservation gets you on their, “wait list”, it doesn’t guarantee you a table for the time you booked. An outrageous claim.
Service was terrible, meals forgotten for a group order....delivered when others getting cheque to leave
Good service and all the staff were very polite. I would go again.
Birthday dinner. Enjoyed. The dessert choices are not so good.
Great restaurant, very busy and active, what you'd expect on a Saturday night. Was cool to see the patio open and packed. Very enjoyable experience.
I like the server, Andrew, he is so nice and all. The bourbon steak presentation looked a little messy but it tasted good.
Great service and food
We had a great time! Was totally disappointed they didn’t have my favourite dish...but the waiter took it upon himself and camped me a dessert :) He went above and beyond to ensure our meals were made to perfection, timely, and that we had fun! He even knew (without being asked) to bring the fun beverages to our daughters with the meal! Hanks for a great evening!
I did like my meal at Jack Astor's. I thought my server Mackenzie was very helpful and friendly. I liked the decor but I really don't understand where this need for high tables and chairs comes from. I think they are a nuisance. I also felt the tables were a little to close together. I also thought the music was too loud.
I would eat at Jack Astor's again because they do have good food, I guess I can block out the noise and ask for a regular table and not a high table.
My cousin and I had an amazing time at your restaurant. Great atmosphere, wonderful guest and an exceptional staff. I am glad we chose Jack Astors over every place else.
I’ve heard about the famous garlic cheese bread but was underwhelmed.
This jacks is dirty! We stared at 3 dirty tables for 20 minutes while we ate., would dine somewhere else next time we're downtown.
They only do "priority" reservations after 5pm. This means they will set up the first available table when you arrive. This was not explained on opentable. We ended up waiting 25 minutes for a table to become available with a reservation.
They changed some of the ingredients in my usual salad, which was disappointing
