    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.

    This place can be described in just one word. Amazing. The food delicious. The drinks are so complex in mouth that you can see a good work from the bartenders. The service was outstanding. I’ll cone back no doubt.

    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

    Although we made mention of the celebration, it was not acknowledged. The drinks were hit and miss; mostly bland. The food was decent for a bar. Do not recommend this place.

    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!

    Great service, owner and staff were so lovely. Had the Mother burger and frites - the dill on the fries were a nice touch. Toasted chai pina colada is a must try, and my partner could not have given a higher praise for the Mother old fashion.

    An outstanding cocktail bar/restaurant; we shared the foie gras and the steak tartare both exquiste and added to our 'real find' feeling. Don't be put off by the fact that everyone (exceot us) appeareed to be in their 20s! It was buzzing but truly excellent. The dry martinis can be recommended. If you find yourself in Toronto - go.

    I visited here for cocktail but food was better than cocktail. The cocktail I ordered was Winter Soft Rosita which was recommended by the server, but it tasted like a liquid digestive medicine. Other than that, it was all good! Such a great place with great vibe!
