Great experience at national on 17th!
We ordered the bees knees pizza and the staff was super accommodating when I told them I didn’t like white sauce on pizza, they swapped it for red sauce and also only put pepperonis on half!
It began to rain while we sat on the patio and they brought us out an umbrella and a heater! They were super nice about it too.
I enjoyed a Caesar, vodka pink lemonade and a coffee and they were all a solid 10/10!
The food and drinks were amazing and I’ll definitely be back!
We were seated at a long bench on the patio sharing with another group with no barrier between us and it was not possible to be 6 feet away from them. The other tables all had Perspex barriers so no idea why ours didn’t. The server was disinterested in serving us and only smiled when she brought the bill, presumably in the hope of a tip. Food was okay bar food, nothing special.
Great Patio, great beer and great food!
Scott smith and John A are two of the best servers/bartenders! We always have a great time with them and enjoy the food and drinks along the way. Patio was great with the heaters on - perfect for typical Canadians enjoying the cold !
Amazing food, cocktails and service. One of the best patios on 17th Ave will be back for sure
Love that place! Great ambiance, great music, delicious food and deer/drinks, can't go wrong.
Le service était vraiment ordinaire. La serveuse était distraite et pressée, aucunement accommodante. Pas de menu papier, pas de solution alternative et toute sa condescendance comme seul réponse. À peine terminé de manger, on se fait kicker dehors nonchalamment par une gérante qui a oublié que son travail implique un minimum de sourire. Je n'y retournerai pas.
Had the pizza for lunch as well as a cold pint and must say that I was very pleased with how good the pizza was and I would definitely recommend it. The staff was very friendly and attentive and I appreciate being able to book seats on the patio via Opentable during the current Covid restrictions.
I had the best experience at National on 17th for dinner. The service was fantastic, our waitress was very energetic, professional, and was very attentative to make sure that we had everything we needed. The pizza was fantastic and our server had good recommendations for beers that I will definitely be going back for! Will definitely be coming back to this location!
Value how they addressed safety concerns as well as very friendly waitstaff.
Love their pizza and beer selection. And who doesn’t love tater tots as a side or appetizer!
We were there on St. Patrick's Day. Everybody was very friendly and the restaurant was clean. A great experience.
Great vibes, nice patio and my favourite pizza in the city!
What more could you ask for!
Had a great time. Fantastic service. We had the best waitress and really enjoyed our time.
Amazing value with 1/2 wine and pizza deal. The pizza is beyond delicious and we can’t wait to go back for more.
We always like going to the National and will continue to go. However, one of our meals wasn't as ordered and the server while great didn't offer much of a discount or comp on the screw up. Which she admitted was her mistake. In any event, we will go again as we live in the hood and know this isn't a usual occurrence.
Good price good food.
We would come back for happy hour
Thanks for the great review, we appreciate you taking the time to leave one. Hopefully you'll join us for dine-in in the new year!
Brunch, good menu variety!
Excellent night out. The atmosphere and service were fantastic. The COVID protocols felt appropriate and were being followed. Our server was outstanding and always stopped by at the perfect time. The lettuce wraps, Clive burger, and crispy chicken sandwich were all outstanding as well. Would strongly recommend for a fun night out.
Thank you for your kind words! So happy we could make you feel safe for your night out during these uncertain times. Hopefully we will see you again soon.
Good food and very good service. Everything very well spaced so it feels comfortable (safe) but still enjoyed the ambience of a pub.
The food was delicious and customer service was excellent!
Chicken was overly crispy and very thin so just a crunchy no taste sandwich. To bad because the burgers are great my mistake. They also charge a dollar for a little side of mayo. Would look for other burger places.
Hi Jewel. Our apologies that the sandwich was not up to par, we only want our guests to have the best experience. Should you feel inclined to further express your concerns, or if you join us again in the future, please let me know so we can reconcile this or take care of something on the house. Your feedback is appreciated and important to us! Thanks, Tabitha firstname.lastname@example.org
Scott is amazing
Excellent food, drinks and service!
Great deals and food!
Thank you Selena! hope to see you again soon.
Our waitress was fantastic and pleasant
This was not what I expected for my daughter as she brought her friends to the patio to celebrate her 18th birthday. I mentioned it was her birthday in the reservation and her friends told the server yet she was not even wished a happy birthday by the server or any staff at the pub. Worse though was the service of the grumpy and snippy server. She did not introduce herself and was unpleasant to her guests throughout their stay. TOO BAD.
We sat outside, the food was insane good, pizza there is unreal good.... (Go get it.) way above average pub standards. Kristen was our server, top notch and quick, quick everything. everything was dynamite....we'll be back asap.
Thank you so much for the kind review! We'll be sure to pass along these thoughtful words to Kristen.
Great for a Friday night while physically distancing.
Really nice to get back out after this whole Covid thing & experience an evening at National. Food was great, happy hour was on and sunshine was out. Highly recommend!
Service was exceptional. Our server’s name was Bree. Attentive and mindful of space!
Our server made the whole experience. She was so great and helpful. Had a great time. Thanks!
Worst Server. Long wait for food.
They were totally accommodating for my friends celiac disease!
Very clean inside and out, felt safe being there given the current circumstances. Friendly staff, great environment.
Our server Natalie was amazing!!
Great selection of beers, nicely crafted alt cocktails.
Pizza was excellent (thin crispy crust and tasty combos of toppings).
Service was prompt and very good in spite of Covid conditions.
