    OMG the drinks were so BAD:/ the bartender on Thursday night needs to take basic classes on how to make a good drink. Especially martinis! THEY SUCKED, straight up warm gin :/

    The server was in training and the person training her was completely not helpful and we didn’t get the attention that we needed when ordering our food and drinks they forgot to give us utensils for our meal we had to wait 10 minutes for utensils

    Petty cash is my new fav spot! The staff were all amazing! It felt like I was talking with a friend instead of a server. She was so nice, I wish I got her name to give her proper credit. The noise level was super loud but after a couple drinks I didn’t notice it. Food was shockingly delicious! I ordered the mushroom pizza and they did not disappoint!! Made plans with me friends already to return to Petty cash next weekend! Can’t wait! (4 stars only because it was just sooo loud at first)

    Made a reservation for dinner, drove from Mississauga to get there. When we arrived they were completely closed and didn't tell us they would be closing or cancel our reservation. Thankfully we were able to get a last minute reservation somewhere else, otherwise it would have been a completely ruined evening. Very frustrating, especially when you don't live closeby. They need to create a new system if they are planning on closing unexpectedly so the guests don't waste their time going all the way there if they won't be open.

    With the circumstances at hand, we had a great experience. Staff always friendly food and drinks spot on. Best part was the ambiance, fireplace on the tv, heaters so there was no chance of being cold and everyone is always friendly.

    I loved the food! The portions are small but delicious which was great for snacking between drinks. The vibe of the night was great with friendly, fun people. The dj picked popular throwback songs that everyone couldn't help but sing and dance to. I will definitely be coming back!! I just wouldn't suggest getting a table. We barely saw our server later in the night and it was hard getting water refills.

    The restuarant/ bar was great but the food is about a 2/5. The 1/2 half chicken was raw in the middle and so was the burger. Overall love the live band and the experience.

    The $6 deal was excellent for the sliders - really terrific sliders! The service was great too. And $1 an ounce wine is a huge draw! The turnovers seemed expensive even at $6 but that was my only issue. My friends and I had a great time and I would come back for the app deal and $1 an ounce wine for sure.

    This is definitely more the place to go on a Friday or Saturday night out. Otherwise, the music was so loud we had to scream to hear one another. I genuinely couldn’t tell who was staff and who were friends of staff or customers. It honestly felt like we were invading on their staff party/that we weren’t meant to be there. Our server was nice enough but you could tell everyone didn’t want to be there/didn’t want to be doing their jobs.

    Petty CashResponded on September 11, 2019Thank you for your feedback Samantha. We take reviews seriously and look to continuously improve our guest experience. Regarding the music, we like people to be able to hear one another when dining and will look into that right away. As for our staff, we never want people to feel that they are intruding which is never the case. If you would like to visit us again please feel free to contact me at 416.735.5311 and I would be happy to ensure your group has a great experience. Scott Denis AGM

    The overall experience was enjoyable, though my jacket went missing and upon trying to contact them about their lost and found, there was no answer on their phone the several times I called and no response to a voice message left regarding the lost item either. Their customer service is lacking in this regard and would like this matter addressed.
