Steak was perfectly cooked . The Béarnaise sauce with blue crab was amazing.
Skillet shrimp appetizer was delicious and bread pudding desert was yummy.
Will definitely go back to Quinn’s on my next visit to Toronto.
Thanks for a glowing review! We're proud of our steak offerings and thrilled you enjoyed your meal. The skillet shrimp is a favourite of both the owner and chef, they'll love to hear that you found it delicious.
An ambiance suited to a steakhouse, and the Prime rib was delicious!
Food was amazing. We had dinner after Seeing Hamilton. The duck pate is the best ever!!! My girlfriend loved it.
The lamb shank was scrumptious and substituted the risotto for garlic mash. Yummy!!
We forgot to use our 15% Mirvish discount though!!
Thanks for visiting, and hope you enjoyed Hamilton! Sorry we missed you Mirvish discount, we'll have to make sure to grab it next time. Glad you enjoyed the Lamb Shank, it's one of our chef's favourites. We make and brûlée the duck pâté entirely in house, it's a tasty appetizer for sure.
The food was cold when served. We have had a couple of poor meals. Not likely to return.
My wife Went to opera with my son
Great list of whiskey, and great vibes. Had the lamb, and would take it again....
Thank you for leaving a review! Our whiskey selection is something we're very proud of, with over 150 international whiskies on our menu, some of which are very rare & no longer made. Our chef will be particularly thrilled that you enjoyed the lamb shank, it's one of his favourite dishes.
My wife and I went for dinner for the first time and was not disappointed. I had the Fillet Mignon and my wife had the ribs. After visiting The Keg many times as a go to steak place, I have to admit that for the food was far better quality at Quinn's and there was hardly any difference in price. I would say much better value for money and worth the trip downtown for a nice dinner out. We will be back !!!!
Glad you & your wife chose to dine with us, and even more pleased that you enjoyed your Filet & ribs. We take great pride in the quality and diversity of our offerings and look forward to seeing you again!
Much more than the suggests, the food is varied, excellently cooked and with great service to boot.
Thank you for the review! We try to ensure that we have a wide variety of offerings on our menu, and we're thrilled you enjoyed your meals & service.
Great service, great ambiance, food was also exceptional. Perfect place for date or birthday celebration.
Went for valintins dinner. Food was great. Would definitely go back
An excellent place for a high-end dinner for a reasonable price. The dimly light dining room and quiet atmosphere was a huge plus. The food was also very good and the service was on-par for a restaurant in this price point. Not as good as other steakhouses like Bardi’s or Harbour 60, but way better than The Keg or Ruth’s Chris. Had no regrets taking my valentines date here. Thanks!
Thrilled that you enjoyed your meal with us, and hope your Valentine did as well!
Good food and quick service. Had the fixed price Valentine's menu and all was well prepared. I would return. My only complaint is that the tables are too close together and impossible to have a private conversation with strangers sitting 18" away from your table.
Thrilled you enjoyed your meals & service on Valentine's day! Due to the sheer number of tables of two that we have on Valentine's day in particular, the tables sometimes get a bit crowded, hopefully this didn't put a damper on your experience. We'd love for you to dine with us again, and hopefully we'll have a better atmosphere for a more personal experience.
Excellent restaurant. I would definitely go back.
Happened to be in Toronto for Valentines Day. They had a wonderful menu with appetizer, main and dessert included. Several choices. My steak was excellent and my husband had the seafood Mac and cheese which he loved. Wonderful service, great food. What more do you want.
Excited that you chose to dine with us for Valentine's day, and we're happy that you had a great experience. The seafood mac n' cheese is a favourite, and we're pleased you enjoyed your steak as well. Thank you for choosing us, and we hope to serve you both again on a future visit to Toronto!
It was great! The service was great and the food was great. We went for Winterlicious and were not disappointed!
Thank you for dining with us for Winterlicious, and glad you enjoyed the food and service!
I’ll never go back.
We went for Winterlicious and both of our choices were regrettable. The food is awful. The atmosphere is straight out of the 80s, if that's your thing. The wait staff is great though. That is the only redeeming quality. How is this a Richmond St. Restaurant is beyond me.
Sincerest apologies that we weren't able to live up to your expectations for Winterlicious. We take great pride in our service & food offerings, and we're very sorry that we didn't deliver on the latter. As an independently owned Irish Bar & Steakhouse, our guests are our number one priority, so we do our very best to ensure that we look after people like yourself.
Went to Quinn's after a matinee to have their Winterlicious menu for dinner. Was not to impressed. Crab cake was supplemented with artifical crab, Neptune sauce and Mac and cheese lacked seafood. Only good thing was the crème brulee. The berry crumble was more like a square with a gelatinous filling. For a downtown steakhouse my guests and I were sorely disappointed.
Two of us stopped in for lunch during the Winterlicious promotion. The place was very busy but we got seated right away even though we arrived 45 minutes before our reservation. The wait staff were busy...so... functional and not much chit chat. Food was good but not exceptional.
First course soup and salad were good flavour but very small portions. Main - Steak and fries, both very good. Last course was a small portion of some kind of gelatinous berry thing that had a weird texture and we didn't eat it.
Not sure if the whole experience would be better if the place wasn't so busy for Winterlicious or if we had ordered off the regular menu. In fairness I would give this place another try because overall, it wasn't bad and I'd like to see if the food portions and atmosphere would be different in a dinner setting.
So sorry to hear that we didn't deliver a memorable Winterlicious experience. We try our best to make sure the quality of our service & food are up to highest standards, and I sincerely apologize if that wasn't the case with your visit. I'm glad you enjoyed you soup & salad appetizers as well as your steaks, the portion sizes are indeed smaller at lunch than at dinner. We would be thrilled if we could have the opportunity to provide a better meal on a future visit, and hope to see you again.
From an extensive Winterlicious menu I opted for a fish night — crab cakes appetizer and grilled salmon on basmati rice, neither with much accompaniment (compared to my selections the week before. For dessert, a generous berry crumble with whipped cream. Good value at $33.
Happy to have the opportunity to serve you for a second visit, and thrilled that you opted to try out entirely new menu items this time around. As before, we're grateful that you enjoyed all three courses, and honoured that you chose to dine with us once again.
2 of us went for Winterlicious 2020 dinner menu. Appetizers were a crabcake and a warm mushroom salad. Both were very good and seasoned well. Steak Neptune was ordered medium well and arrived more to medium however taste was great and they were generous with mashed and veg. Partner had the salmon. It was overdone :( but still quite edible. Both had crème brûlée for dessert - You would think they would be identical but they were not. One was not torched at all :( We felt rushed with the service... It’s not like the place was that busy, there were lots of available tables because it was an early seating. Weird. No Bullet Bourbon was disappointing too. Overall the food was good despite the missteps. Can’t give it more than 3 stars.
It was our first visit to this restaurant. We had the winterlicious menu. Food is great and service is excellent. We will come back!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your Winterlicious lunch with us, and even happier that you were pleased by the quality of our options and the service from our staff. Look forward to seeing you on your next visit!
One of my favourite restaurants to go to for a great steak or Prime rib. Great food, great service a must when visiting Toronto
Thank you for the kind review! Our chef will be ecstatic to hear that you enjoyed the slow roasted prime rib, it's one of his favourite dishes. We're honoured that you would consider us a "must" when visiting Toronto.
Went for Winterlicious. Appetizer portion was the size of a dessert plate. My entree was great - cooked and seasoned perfectly.
Went during Winterlicious and I have to say I thought they had thee best menu items out of the many I reviewed when I was looking to choose a restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I got the Sirloin Neptune at which my medium rare steak was cooked to perfection. It wasn’t as flavourful as the steak I would get at the Keg but still up there in my top fav’s. The service was pleasant, although I thought the server took a bit of time to take our order and check in to see if we were doing fine (hence the 4-star rating) but nonetheless their seemingly delicious-looking menu is what will have me return. Oh! And I was thoroughly impressed by the portion size because I thought since it was a fixed menu, they would try to cheat us but it was the exact opposite! I cannot wait to return to try their Seafood Mac N Cheese!
So happy that you had a good experience dining with us during Winterlicious for your birthday! Apologies if the service was a bit slow, Winterlicious is a very busy period but we try to make sure we don't leave people waiting. We look forward to seeing you again, and hope you enjoy the Mac n' cheese!
I would definitely come back the waiter was always checking in and very attentive, food was AMAZING! Highly recommend.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your meal and would love to serve you again!
My boyfriend and I came here for Winterlicious and it was overall a pretty okay experience. The ambience was fairly nice but felt like a pub with quite a few loud groups. The apps were good but my boyfriend thought the Kale Ricotta Salad was overly salty. The steak entrees were good, lacked a bit of flavor but could have been cooked better especially if they are considered a steakhouse. To tie it altogether, the desserts weren't great at all and felt very store bought. Service is quick and efficient. Overall for the price you pay for the three course dinner it was fair but would not recommend for a special night out.
It must be a great bar, but it is not a great steakhouse. The steak cuts were mot good, meet was tough. We went for Winterlicious and they did not impress us.
Friendly attentive staff. Ordered steak & seafood from winterlicious menu. My steak was rare as ordered but way bigger than expected. My dinning partner's steak was medium as ordered and smaller than mine (size was as expected). So only complaint (if it can be considered a complaint) was size of portions were inconsistant.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your meal with us! Apologies if the steak sizes were inconsistent, we weigh all of our steaks, but if there is an issue we always make sure to err on the side of too large. As your dining partner's steak was cooked to a higher temperature, it may have exaggerated this difference as well. Sincerest apologies for any inconsistencies and we hope to see you again in the future!
Courteous and efficient staff. Food tasted great and presented very nicely. We would all return after this first experience.
Glad to hear you all enjoyed your experience with us at Quinn's! Honoured that you enjoyed the food & presentation, and look forward to serving you again.
I had a fantastic three course steak lunch as part of Winterlicious. The steak was cooked perfectly and it was a good overall value. The wait staff was also very attentive.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your lunch with us! We take great care to make sure we cook our steaks perfectly, and are pleased that ours lived up to your expectations. Thank you for dining with us during Winterlicious, and hope you'll be back in the future.
Came here for lunch and really enjoyed it. Service was good, quick and not pretentious. Food was also good as well, and the 3 other people I was with felt the same.
Amazing service and great food! Also they had a halal option for winterlicious which is extremely rare. My friend and I had a great time catching up over dinner. I’ve already recommended this restaurant to a few others :)
Thanks for visiting Veronica! Glad to hear you enjoyed our halal chicken option on our Winterlicious menu. Can't thank you enough for recommending us to your friends!
Quinn's is a really good steakhouse in downtown Toronto.
You good value for your food and our server was great.
The food was delicious, and promptly served. The server was fantastic ! I will definitely recommend!
We’ve dined here previously, and have always had a great dinning experience.
Same holds true for this time as well!
Service was prompt
Food was fresh.. warm mushroom salad was delish
Steak was cooked to perfection and dessert was sweet Creme Brûlée yum!
We’ll definitely be back!
Thank you for the kind review! Glad to hear you enjoyed the warm mushroom salad, and we look forward to serving the same quality experience on your next visit.
Winterlicious 2020 menu provided a special warm wild mushroom salad, then steak with seafood sauce and generous vegetables and creamed potatoes, ending with a delicious creamy creme brule. Superlative for $33.
Thank you for dining with us during Winterlicious, we take great pride in the quality and value of our prix fixe offerings and are incredibly grateful that you enjoyed the steak neptune, the warm mushroom salad & the creme brulee.
My son, my mother and I had dinner here on a weeknight during Winterlicious. We had the special winterlicious menu and each of our meals was cooked to perfection. The ambiance was very welcoming and comfortable. The wait staff were excellent and checked in on us several times to make sure that we had everything we needed. Even though the restaurant was busy, the noise level was low and we had a great deal of privacy at the table we were seated at. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Thank you, we're honoured by such a glowing review and recommendation. We strive to deliver the best food & service we can, and are excited to hear you enjoyed the ambiance as well.
