    One of the most bespoke cocktail experiences you can have in Toronto, the menu is truly handcrafted with love, perfection and attention to detail. The staff cares about you and it reflects in their respect for the ingredients they use. I can't wait to be back to try the rest of their menu. Absolutely fantastic time.

    This was our first cocktail bar. Really impressed with the care and attention to detail in crafting these drinks. It's definitely worth it though. The drink are complex and delicious. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food menu, though small, was all delicious (we ordered almost everything).

    THE BEST! Is it wrong to only go to one cocktail lounge in Toronto? No, especially when it's Mother. Love sitting at the bar, watching the bartenders perform their magic. It truly is a cocktail experience that keeps me going back. Outstanding drink menu and superb food quality. Thanks Mother for a great night out - see you soon!

    In love with this place! The food was super delicious and had distinct flavours (Asian fusion done right). Highlights include the mother udon, burrata, short rib beef tartare, and tiger shrimp. Cocktails were unique and tasty. The service was awesome: our server was attentive, our friend wasn’t happy with her choice of drink and the restaurant gave her a replacement drink at no extra charge, and we also got a free leches cake for our birthday girl which we all got to share. Such an enjoyable time, highly recommend this spot.

    Great cozy spot. The servers were very knowledgable about their cocktails and were able to provide great recommendations. Only got the karaage for a snack but it was tasty and affordable for the portion size. Would definitely come back here to try some of their other cocktails. Definitely need to make a reservation as it looks like it gets pretty busy every day, especially around 8pm.

    The vibe of the restaurant was amazing. Live music and service was impeccable. The Burrata came cold which was our only issue, as it wasn’t spreadable. The server took our concern and fixed our issue. Overall I enjoyed this place.

    Three dynasties: flavours are perfectly balanced and although earthy is not heavy. Chai Pina Colada: dangerously smooth. Tako (Octopus) Tacos: cooked perfectly, great amuse bouche. Great ambiance - the music is kept at a reasonable level so you never find yourself yelling at the person sitting across from you. Highly recommend this place!

    Not a place for food but it is a bar/cafe so maybe I’m being too harsh. Either way it’s very expensive for a drink, average of around 20 a cocktail. Hopefully you sip your drinks

    Wow I can’t even begin to explain how terrible the service was here. I came here to ring in my 30th birthday with my two best friends at 12AM with some curated cocktails and a good night. I didn’t even make it to 12AM so that should tell you how bad it was. We sat down and it took our server a good 15 mins just to come by and at least greet us, let alone take our drink order. They knew it was my birthday, I had made sure to put it on the reservation ahead of time. It took another 30 mins to get our first set of drinks. My friend asked for a straw and it took them another 20 mins to come back with that. Our server didn’t check up on us once during the entire time we were there, we had to flag down multiple staff just to get a straw. It ruined the whole mood of ringing in my birthday. Took well over 15 mins to get the bill. I walked out of there annoyed at 11:45. I would never return to this restaurant again and it was a TUESDAY night. I can only imagine how terrible the service is on weekends when they’re even more busy. Oh and btw, dill does not belong on a cake or whatever that was y’all gave me at the end. It was horrendous.

    Had a great experience at Mother Cocktail bar. I went with a friend, and we both tried cocktails with interesting flavour combinations that you wouldn't normally find other places. We each had two drinks, and found them to be unique, delicious, and well-mixed. Definitely would recommend for cocktail lovers and anyone with a sense of adventure!
