Italian
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...

Unfortunately, the Bang bang chicken I ordered was cold and the salad I ordered was warm. Also both of my drink glasses had prior lipstick stains on them. Great atmosphere but the cleanliness of the dishes was atrocious.

The food came out cold. I mentioned it to the server but nothing was done about it. Cold octopus is not very good. Drinks were weak too.

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 😄😂

Very bad experience. The service was very poor, even if there were more waiters than customers. They would just talk to each other very loud and ignore us. And, the food and wine were not good. I don't recommend.

Went here before covid, the food and service was amazing. Came here recently and ended up getting sick all night from the sliders. Drinks took forever and I mean 15-20 minutes for one shot of tequila. They made the place look really beautiful and fun, but never coming here again. Not paying to get sick again.

Our experience was nothing short of disappointing. Upon arrival at exactly the time of our reservation, we were told that we had to stand in line with people who were trying to walk in to the restaurant and witnessed 4 tables getting seated ahead of us. When we finally did get our table, we were told we have a 2 hour limit since the time of the original reso. Whenever we tried to talk to a bouncer or hostess about our situation we were simply told to go back in the line since they were busy. Our server was very nice and definitely the best part of the night, she was prompt with orders and had a great attitude. The food was definitely overpriced, and so were the drinks. My friend ordered two Caesar’s and a shot and had to pay a $71 bill which is simply unacceptable. The ambience is pretty energetic and nice and quite loud but good for a young crowd. All in all, I’m glad we had the experience since now we know to never go back.

I ordered a challenging dish, admittedly. It was the roasted octopus. I’ve had this dish at other restaurants, most notably thoroughbred (now closed permanently), and Cluny. In both cases the octopus was beautifully roasted, resulting in melt in your mouth textures. Unfortunately the octopus at this restaurant was overlooked and very tough. It was an expensive and disappointing meal. I highly recommend the chef visit Cluny, and order the octopus to see first hand what it’s like when it’s done well.
Sorry… on the plus side, the waitresses were all very attractive and I enjoyed their revealing tight black dresses. The uniform seemed a bit sexist not to mention obvious to me, but being a male I am inclined to objectify women subconsciously whether I want to or not.

This has to be hands down the worst place in Ontario.

The food was terrible and way to expensive for what you get, they do not follow any covid protocols so thank goddess we have. Been vaccinated.

The staff are rude and unless you want to do bottle
Service they don’t give you the time of day.

The only thing this place has going for it is the DJ, the drinks are terrible quality alcohol and over priced at that.

No clue how this place hasn’t been shut down by toronto public health.

We will never be back because honestly I am not sure which is worse the “regulars” who move from table to table like they own the place or the staff!

They took my reservation happily 5 days in advance but didn't honor it at all. Same complaint as everyone else on here. We travelled all the way to get sent to the back of the line behind people with no reservations. Ended up just leaving. Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode "anyone can take a reservation! It's the holding of the reservation that really makes it a reservation"

If you want to be first come first serve, just say so. Don't take any reservations then. Not classy. Will avoid in the future.
