Food was good and had a good experience
It was a great compliment to TIFF. The service was great
Amazing service, food and ambient. Always love going there, especially during TIFF. Highly recommend!
We ordered two smash burgers. Asked for one to be Gluten Free with a gf bun. No gf buns as an option. Surprising for this calibre of restaurant in the heart of the city with such a diverse clientele and so many dietary needs from customers.
The regular bun was l like a Wonder Bread hamburger bun, and it was soggy when it arrived. Presentation was less than mediocre.
I have been to this retaurant many times and have had a good experience. This was first time back since pandemic started and its a tradition to go during TIFF Festival. Felt like it went downhill. Even wait staff weren't wearing their usual fun tshirts with play on words for food. Not even dressed uniformly to represent the restaurant. The vibe of the restaurant experience felt sloppy.
The food was just ok. Not worth the price.
A lovely evening at the Canteen with excellent service (couldn't have been better :) and very good food and wine. Highly recommended.
Eric, our server, was friendly, very helpful with the menu and our dinner was delicious.
Staff was friendly. Atmosphere was was good. We thought there for the buck a shuck. Would go again.
Food was delicious with a panel of choices for every taste! We had a table under the tent which was super private. Nice surprise: bottles were half price so that was perfect for us.
We were a large group from France and bonus: We were taken care of by a bilingual French speaker waiter who was amazing with us!!
Enjoyed my time here! Food and service are really amazing. Definitely recommend.
Service was very friendly and fast but food was sub par. Very limited gluten free options for such a large menu.
Great oysters and wine list, and great service!
Went in for a quick snack while in the area. Service and food were both wonderful
It is our go to place for a meal before our Mirvish shows. Never disappointed.
Great place for food and drinks with friends and family...not too expensive and the table service was outstanding 👌
Had my friends birthday here and the food was amazing and the sangrias! Jeff was an amazing waiter! Loved his energy will definitely be eating here again!
Awesome location, great service and such a yummy Beetroot salad with pomegranate and pistachios! Loved it
Second time I’ve been here and the servers have always been the best!!
Took at least 20 min for our server to actually acknowledge our table after we were sat down. Had the Canadiana pizza, and I was thinking how much the Papa John's pizza I recently had was so much better =/ the quality of the dough was pretty disappointing. The patio is a nice ambience, and otherwise atmosphere is fine for a casual meal and drinks.
Solid experience!! It was my first time visiting this restaurant and everything was good.
Food was ok, made a reservation online for the only time available, got there and was told by no less than 5 people that we only 15 mins. I get that the kitchen is closing but please don’t make me feel like it’s my fault that I have to rush…you took the reservation.
Definitely a great place to just come and drink wine I wouldn't necessarily recommend eating there the middle eastern portion of the menu was very good but other than that they have 50% off all bottles of wine so that definitely the reason to show up, i would skip the food and go somewhere else personally for a proper meal
Food was very disappointing and not worth the money
We went for the promotion on oysters and 1/2 price wine. We were pleasantly surprised. The oysters were perfectly shucked and of excellent quality. The hostess (didn't get her name) and Eric were exceptional throughout. We'll be back. Thank you.
As a restaurant general manager, I can easily identify and celebrate exceptional service. Eric was an incredible server and made some specific recommendations based on his connections with us. He delivered an amazing experience and it definitely exceeded our expectations. Looking forward to visiting again! Highly recommend the half price bottles of Prosecco with the sidecar of OJ for brunch mimosas!
Eric was amazing!
Lots of Friday the 13th shenanigans happening, but Jacob did a fantastic job and we had a really great time.
I also felt very safe in the outdoor space and covid-19 precautions. Thanks for a great evening!
Very good food and service. Unfortunately eating on Sunday there was no oysters left! Had to wait for a keg to be changed as well. Servers were courteous and had covid precautions. Hand sanitizer at the tables would have been appreciated. Empanadas were very good, as was the Mac and cheese, the fish and chips were outstanding! Always good people watch at the corner of Peter and King!
Standard food, buck a shuck deal is great though! Service is pretty good, well located.
Went for my birthday and it was great, especially having an additional 7th person coming- they were very accommodating and hands on
Food is always great here. Healthy and tasty. The service was personable, swift, courteous and very kind.
Good place, lots of options, patio is fairly noisy but that's to be expected in the middle of the street corner. Staff were excellent and very friendly. Pretty decent value for the prices, would definitely eat here again.
Amazing service and delicious food! Will definitely be returning!
I was hoping to catch up with my friends after a long time no see. Thanks to the servers we could barely talk. We were forced to leave the place in 45 minutes. They were asking us every 10 minutes if we want to order anything else. Finally they forced the bill without us asking for it… wouldn’t go again.
They cleared out table before we were done, dumped our drinks, never came for service and the food was horrible still charged full price for everything dispute the whole situation
Good location, patio is nicely set up and covered so you won’t be too affected by rain. Pretty standard in terms of food and service quality. Safe bet for a casual dinner.
Great job, very friendly staff and good food. I'm very happy with how it went.
Stopped by to see if they had a table available on the patio. Was told that despite looking empty (there were only 3-4 tables with patrons) that there was nothing available if we didn’t have a reservation. Walked away (2 doors down) and made a reservation for 15 minutes later. Couldn’t the hostess have offered us this option?! My friend and I found this to be odd and disappointing. Thankfully we both enjoyed our meals and our waitress went above and beyond!
Our server, Eric. went above and beyond to ensure our gluten free guest was taken care of!
Good sized portions for price
