I wasn’t aware that there was a special event going on. I wasn’t notified on their profile on the app and no one let me know when they called from the restaurant and confirmed my reservation. The who restaurant was full of rugby fans watching a game, and even a team-themed special. It would have been nice to know this beforehand for someone just going for regular dining. As well, I went at 12 on a Sunday and they didn’t have their normal brunch menu. It would also have been nice to have been notified about the menu change.

Great food and great beer. Not a great place to watch games, need bigger or more TVs if they hold sports events.

I just loved the oysters and the venison tartar, the service and the ambience are excellent and the beer flight is an amazing option to taste the most of the brewery options.

My husband and I each started with a flight. I had the lager/bitter/IPA/stout. The bitter was chai infused...really tasted the chai. I loved the stout!! Tasted like chocolate and coffee; two of my favourite things.

The atmosphere was relaxed/cozy and welcoming. Really enjoyed our time watching the Leafs game. The menu is fancy/up scale. We had mango habanero wings and truffle fries. Both were soooo amazing and delish! Our 2nd course was the porchetta tacos and the squash ricotta cakes. I found the porchetta pieces too large/thick for the tacos and I would have liked the ricotta to be mixed in with the cakes instead of crumbled on top. Check my Insta page for pics @live4urbody

We would definitely go back again!!

The food with beer flights were fantastic. Staff were knowledgeable with the pairings and have many other options for other drinks. If a craft beer enthusiast I highly recommend the Tour if available.

We waited a very long time for our food with only a few quick updates of “I’m sorry, it’s coming” from the waiter. The first three orders came out (2 burgers and a breakfast plate) and the fourth (another burger) took an additional 15-20 min to come out when they didn’t appear to be that busy. After we were already not very happy with the experience, they then said the dessert we had chosen at the start of the meal was not available (which was only 1 of three on their winterlicious menu) so we substituted for the fruit salad which ending up being very subpar- it was pretty much a whole bowl of pineapple with just a few miniature pieces of papaya, orange and strawberry. Not a very good experience all around.

We had an amazing time as always at Northern Maverick. This particular day was to celebrate my birthday and our server brought out the cake, then had the kitchen cut it into slices. It was overall just an amazing night. The food was delicious and the beer you can't go wrong... There is something for everyone.

I was there for a business dinner. Atmosphere was vibrant, server was excellent and the noise level was acceptable allowing us to have a very good conversation. On the server’s recommendation we ordered the turduckin burger which was excellent. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our dinner & meeting.

This could have been an excellent experience if:
1. The food [that should have been hot] had arrived hot and not lukewarm;
2. I didn't have to alert a staff-member that over half of the stalls in the ladies' washroom had no toilet-paper whatsoever. Thankfully, that was promptly rectified. (The washroom was otherwise quite nice.)

In other respects: The food was tasty, attractive, and the portions were quite generous; and the service was friendly, obliging, and reasonably efficient.

We found the dining experience to be all around lacking. The service was inattentive while at the same time a bit rushed even through the restaurant was very quiet. The food quality and taste were mediocre. The room is lovely and would be a good fit for friends looking to get together if not for the poor service and food quality.
Drinks were lovely!!

My friends arrived on time for our reservation but there were people already seated at our reservation table. When asked to relocate, the group would not move from our table (probably because of the World Cup broadcast), so we were then directed to a patio table which was less comfortable as the sun was directly on us with no shade available. My reservation was for the summerlicious event but we were not given summerlicious menus, so we asked for them and ordered drinks to wait. Our 4 beers took almost 20mins to arrive with no summerlicious menus in sight. At this point we had decided we weren't going to eat and waved the waitress over to settle up. We explained we had made a reservation, lost our table, and then had to wait so long for some service. She handled this very well (which is the only reason why this review isn't all poor) and ended up clearing the tab for us so we didn't have to worry about the beers. All in all, I think the seating staff could have made a better effort at moving people who aren't where they're supposed to be. Not sure if I'd trek all the way to go back again.
