Very good food and atmosphere. Definitely coming back to try other items on the menu
I had heard great things about this restaurant and it sure didn't disappoint. We had the shuckers dozen oysters for appetizers, they were delicious and fresh. The fish dinners we had melted in your mouth. The banana split dessert was the ultimately delicious ending to a wonderful dinner. Our server Tina M was exceptional and attentive she made our night. We will definitely be back.
Love this place!!
The food is always amazing and the staff are great! A great place to come for a special occasion or just a nice dinner out!
The restaurant is nice mix of wood/brick and looks fantastic. All the servers, hostesses were amazing. We were super happy with the food, oysters were delicious, swordfish seviche was so flavourful and the pasta was great. Will definitely go back for buck-a-shuck night.
I thought the food was incredible. Loved my salmon dish, cooked perfectly. And the ambience was special occasion-worthy.
The food was enjoyable, but the service was very slow.
Great service! Great food! Great staff! Sat at the bar which made the experience even better by watching the seafood platters being put together and the oysters being shucked.
Great spot. Oysters are always fresh and food is grand.
The building it’s in is really cool too. Historic and just beautiful.
Very impressed with service and food! Fabulous staff. Hit the jackpot with buck a shuck oysters! Cold and delicious Malpeques!
Will return soon! Took a colleague who had never been so she was duly impressed, and I was very pleased to show off my good taste in restaurants😉!
Went for Winterlicious and loved the food. Added Oysters to the first course and they were delicious. Only comment was latte at end of meal was not the best.
Great food! Great service!
Are experienced overall at the restaurant was fantastic the food was delicious the service was excellent I have nothing bad to say about our first time would definitely come back but during warmer temperatures. Thank you
The trout main was tasty, but the soup starter was bland. My friends liked the caesar salad, but the were not keen on the chicken main.
Oysters were fresh; shredded horseradish was a perfect accompaniment. Service
We had a great anniversary dinner at Pure Spirits, great food and drinks. The server was very friendly and we enjoyed the winterlicious menu.
I went for Winterlicious and had a great time. Energetic atmosphere with attentive service. Our waiter was great and kept an eye on our table knowing when to bring out the next course. I recommend the vanilla creme brulee for dessert. It was delicious.
found a piece of metal in one of the meals
We were there with my husband and my 4 years old.
Everything was amazing. Food excelent as usual. My daughter enjoyed the burger from the kids menu
Food was very good including an excellent steak in a seafood restaurant! Trout was excellent. The lobster papperdelle, reportedly their most popular dish, was good but would have been better if served hot rather than warm. Service and ambience very good.
We enjoyed the Oyster sampler first round and chose to go with the Stellar Bay and Pink oysters only, for our 2nd round...all accompanied by some Innis & Gunn and scallops (which are presented fabulously. We also enjoyed sitting at the bar for our last 2 visits. The chairs are comfortable and allow for more intimate conversation. We shall return!
It has been a while since our last visit and were impressed with the improvement in the food. We were four and we all had fish for our main course and all thought the fish was fresh and well cooked. We shared the calamari as an appetizer and it was tender in a light coating. Our servers were helpful and gave us great recommendations.
A great experience.
My favourite place! The food is always amazing and the staff are always friendly!
Excellent! Oysters and Mussels 👌
Very good oyster selection from east and west coast. For our standard a too limited wine selection. However, top friendly service. We'll be back soon!
I absolutely love this place.... I love the ambiance , Love the oyster, friendly staff, modern. Just an overall nice place to go out to!
We enjoyed a wonderful New Year’s Eve dinner. The service was great. Really enjoyed our waiter Jay and the boat Matthieu. Would definitely visit again!
Good service, good food from start to end.
We (husband and I plus our two young adult children) went for dinner at Pure Spirits on Sunday night and just as on every other visit, it didn’t disappoint. There are so many things we love about this restaurant - great oyster bar and the other menu items never disappoint either. It’s a really cozy spot and has become one of our favorite restaurants in Toronto.
Special mention this time to our waitress, Shweta. She was outstanding and made our evening. Honestly, Shweta was one of the best waitresses/waitors we’ve ever met. Such a pleasure!
We’ll definitely be back.
Great service and food, staff was accommodating, pleasant and knowledgeable. Fantastic experience, was their to celebrate a birthday and the celebrant desert was on the house.
Fantastic food and service! Always love going there!
Food was good - however the wine is highly overpriced for the quality ($18+ per glass)..much better options in the city for that price with better ambience. Service was excellent though!
Excellent casual restaurant with great food and great service
The servers were extremely pleasant and helpful. ........................................................................................................................................................
Fabulous dinner on our date night. We loved the Malpeque Oysters that were great and well presented with fresh horseradish and 3 sauces. The Traditional Provençal Mussels had nicely balanced white wine sauce great for dipping bread in. The 6oz Black Angus Tenderloin was a good size and was cooked to perfection a medium rare. We greatly appreciated the generous portion and variety of the Roasted veggies.
They have a good selection of wine by the bottle or glass. We had a St. Clair Sauvignon Blanc and an Italian Valpolicella, Fumanelli, both well balanced and well mated to the meal.
Service was fantastic with a knowledgeable and friendly server Julia and we also appreciated the personal attention the General Manager Matthew gave us and other guest. Highly recommend.
We ordered 2 dozen oysters (Malpeques) & they were small & not meaty at all. Very disappointing!!. If we were paying a buck a shuck, as on Tuesdays, maybe we would have thought "get what you pay for" ....
The rest of the food was fine but not as good as it could be for the price. Think the menu needs some tweaking.
For anyone who enjoys oysters and seafood, Pure Spirits is great! My date and I shared a dozen oysters, Squid Ink Linguine with clams and shrimp and Tuna Poke. All delicious and affordable! Also, because it's nestled in the Distillery District, you can enjoy the Xmas Market in the winter and the cute shops in that area. Perfect for a date night or outing with friends and colleagues!
Birthday with awesome service and good food!!
Wow! Great food, great service, great ambiance! I'd go back tomorrow for more!
Have eaten here usually every 6 months and every time I am impressed with the service. The service here can match any restaurant. They provide insight to both wine and food options, while continually trying to ensure your experience is a memorable one.
We had made a reservation during a busy time (Christmas Market) yet when we arrived the manager ensured we had desired seating, only to check in later on our experience.
I wish we lived closer so I could go more often.
Thank you to the staff.
