At the intersection of Spadina Avenue and Wellington Street, in the busy downtown core, sits a little historic park called Clarence Square. In the summer, people sit or lay back on the park benches to read, nap or people-watch. Occasionally squirrels race down the enormous trees, chattering at each other, while small dogs, let loose by their condo owners, scrabble after them.

A italian snack bar with great cocktails and and ambiance. From pasta to think crust pizza to snacks. Come in and meet her...

They cancelled our reservation without telling us since they had booked a large party indoors. They told us we could sit outside (the tables weren't set, no heaters, and super dirty). The hostess had already finished our contact tracing and was just as shocked as we were. When asked why we weren't notified she said "the manager wanted to close the availability yesterday but didn't because they were still getting reservations". We should have been notified. Lousy business.

A friend and I went just for dinner and drinks before our night out on the town.

The food was good. The staff were good. A little pricey for what it was but definitely a lovely space.

We were the only guests there when we arrived. They didn't go above or beyond for us given that point but it was good for what it was!

I'm sure it gets livelier later in the evening.

The place is cute but there were flies in our face which was super weird considering we’re in a restaurant, the fire alarm kept going off cuz of the smoke from the kitchen and there were flies and no soap in the washroom as well. When I confronted the manager she said there was nothing she can do and was giving attitude. Overall I was really upset w it.

Service was terrible, food took way too long to arrive, appetizer came out same time as food. The server continuously forgot items but continued to come check on us.. without the items. Kitchen put balsamic vinegar on the cheese cake instead of chocolate sauce. She overcharged us for things we didn’t order, as well as did not ask how to split the bill and rather charged it to one bill - leaving us to calculate the bill and divide it among ourselves.

I don’t know if this is an ongoing issue but while we were there the owner/manager was speaking to three severs on the road regarding an issue with service and some drama between them.

Once all internal issues are resolved this would probably be a great experience for all.

The music was amazing and the aesthetic was just perfect! The food was good as well and so was the drink!! My only issue was with the service cause it took the longest time before we got a server to serve us and then she took the longest time with everything which was quite annoying but other than that it was an amazing experience!

Vivenne the server was horrible. They apparently didn’t have house wine when we wanted a bottle and the next best was Chardonnay that they didn’t even tell us the price for, the price for it didn’t match up with the menu. The waitress was on her phone most of the time and didn’t refill our water at all or check in once. The place wasn’t even busy at all and there were so many waitresses that stood around, so there was no excuse. There was no service but they charged an auto tip. Avoid this place at all cost, trust the reviews you see.

Great vibe. Friendly and attentive service. Food is okay. But the mix drinks were not so good. I’d come back for the vibe, music and Truffle fries, but will stick to wine.

I am really disappointed with this restaurant, this was by far the WORST dining/customer service experience I’ve ever had. Not only did our mains come out cold but to top it off there was no manager/supervisor on duty to take care of the matter. We were forced to pay for a meal that we didn’t eat, due to the lack of management. However, the staff were really nice and tried to help by contacting the manager for us. He was extremely rude and unprofessional, said that we had to pay and to come back the next day to get store credit. The staff even offered to pay for our bill out of pocket, which we did not allow. As someone who not only studies but works in the same industry, I was extremely frustrated that someone like him is allowed to run a restaurant. I contacted him the next day and he started swearing at me for telling him that it’s not right to leave a restaurant unattended. Please avoid going to this restaurant, I made a mistake by not looking at the reviews beforehand. The reviews/ ratings says a lot about this restaurant, dont make the same mistake. Spend your money elsewhere.

We went here before my brother in laws proposal, and it wasn’t the right vibe. Music was deafeningly loud, restaurant was empty, service was pretty bad, but our waitress was really nice and sweet to us!! We liked her. The food was decent, it wasn’t too bad. I got really bad stomach pains after the meal and it pretty much ruined the whole night.

The food was terrible, but not as terrible as our server 😭 We asked for water about 6 times before we actually got it. We didn’t even get napkins??? My friends ordered drinks and ended up cancelling because by the time we were done with our food, they still didn’t get their drinks. Will say tho, the DJ was bumpin.

Service was terrible, waited at least 25 minutes before I was served and was probably even noticed because she was serving the table next to me. The food was terrible, over fried calamari which was heavily breaded and the cups had lipstick stains. In regards to vibe, great vibe but bring your own food and drinks to this place

Got an early seat on the patio. Service very slow and when I asked to see the manager, I was told that he/she was too busy. Finally, one of the waitstaff pretended to be a manager; she was about 20 years old and looked like a call girl.

The music was so LOUD, a diner would not even have to chew their food. We left - without eating - after not even getting served even a drink for over 20 minutes.

The vibes are nice and the music is great! the food okay. I would go back.. just don't order the margarita. It was a strong bitter smoky flavor, we had to ask for sprite to fix it and ended up getting beers because they were impossible to enjoy. Other than that, good times!

We had reservations for 4 people late night… two of us got there on time, while the other two were 5 minutes away. They didn’t want to seat us… I guess understandable because covid? Anyways we walked away to wait for the rest of our party to arrive. Then I guess the manager or whatever chased us down and told us we can sit at our table now. Confusing.

The hostesses were slow and weren’t doing their job… we stood at the front desk for a good 10 minutes but nobody even acknowledged us until I had to ask the security/bouncer who the hostess was. They came of rude and probably didn’t even wanna be there. They were standing around looking at their nails and online shopping on their phones, thus I thought they were customers as well… I’ll never go back to this place 😄😂
