The Cloak Bar was such a great find! The ambiance and vibe were low key and suave. Loved the dimly lit atmosphere. The Midnight Oil fries are the best fries we’ve ever had! And the cocktails! <3 Our bartender was always there when we needed him but also had a certain discreetness about his service. Can’t wait to go back!

Went there for a first date on a Tuesday night. Place was cosy and dark. Staff were friendly.
Drinks were ok but I’m pretty picky with drinks. Had a small charcuterie board which wasn’t what I thought it would be. And pretty expensive for what they served.
Would go back for the ambiance. Neat little spot

Introduced a good friend of mine to the cloak on Thursday night. Great experience as always, drinks were well mixed, food was excellent. The cloak is the place to unwind after a busy work week.

Our server Shannon was excellent as always. Her food and drink suggestions were well received in addition to her accommodating personality. All the servers and staff at clock have never disappointed.

A unique quality venue with quality people.

We went to the cloak bar for drinks on Thursday. I have never written a negative review before but Our waitress was rude and inattentive.

We had to go up to the bar multiple times to ask to place our food order, ask to take a drink order, ask for more napkins etc.

The table behind us was very loud and slapping the table. We didn’t complain and it was fine but we were speaking a bit loud she told us to “keep it down”. It’s a bar and we were not shouting.

Terrible service, wonderful drinks.

We came here to celebrate my sis’s bachelorette party and it exceeded our expectations. The drinks were yummy and strong but the bartenders were actually really nice and personable. When we asked for a recommendation they actually gave us one instead of the dreaded “everything is good here” which isn’t a real answer. I would come here again and I’ve already recommended this place to my friend.

Our first experience here was wonderful; cool intimate vibe, some interesting cocktails, good food, and friendly service.

Our second visit, however, was unfortunately very poor. We arrived early Friday evening when the bar was not yet very busy, and first ordered food for dinner, and then orders drinks a few minutes later. After about 45-mins we ordered another drink as we slowed our drinking to wait for food. Our new drinks arrived and our food had still not arrived (now about an hour after ordering). We were eventually told that the kitchen never got our order because their printer was broken but our food was on its way. We asked for some bread as we had been drinking on empty stomachs. It took another 15-mins before we were told the kitchen could only serve us bread when our food was ready. It was clear that even after acknowledging their technical difficulties, our very late food order was still not being prioritized. We told staff that we really need to eat dinner so if the food would take much longer to arrive, then we need to leave to get dinner elsewhere. Almost two hours into it we asked food again and were told that they cancelled our order because they thought we didn’t want to wait longer. We were comped two drinks and a small snack as apology but we really had trouble drinking more on empty stomachs. Then, when settling the bill, a food item that we never received was still on the bill. It took another 20-mins to resolve and pay before finally getting out of there. The staff tried to be friendly about it but continuously failed executing through the evening. We were really hoping to continue coming to this venue as it is close to our neighborhood but this extremely poor experience has ruined it.

We had great time at the Cloak following a show. The cocktail I received after describing my preferences was exactly to my taste. The waiter was super cool and friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely happy to help us celebrate our special occasion. The bartender also provided table service and was eager to ensure our drinks were enjoyed. We ordered oysters, fries and fried cauliflower which were all really delicious. The cauliflower in particular was so unique and flavourful, I just wished there was more!
The bar itself has a great laidback feel with comfortable lighting and volume and definitely felt like a hidden gem.
Thanks so much, we'll be back!

Service was fine but asking for water 3x before getting it was a bit annoying. Cocktails were amazin for the most part. Servers and bartenders were accommodating. Venue and ambiance is top notch. Loved that. Intimate and felt like I was brought back to a time I only wished to be in - the 20s or 30s.

Was a great atmosphere but some of the worst service I have ever had. The server was very unclear on the bill and not helpful after the fact (gratuity was included at 20% and this was not mentioned so after paying $300 we were short $5 which was eluded to not include the tip so we thought we were short without tip so were very confused when most tipped 18%). After the fact the manager said we could come back for comp'ed drinks so we will see if this is genuine.

We had a group of 8 celebrating a friends birthday. Decent atmosphere and decent service. We had a nice time. Only complaints were the music was a little loud and many of the food items shown on the menu were not offered in restaurant. Plus they were not flexible on the food offerings (making a charcuterie plate vegetarian by subbing in extra meat for cheese was denied). A decent place for a night out. Would recommend if you are OK with loud music and aren't picky about food (or better if you just want to drink with no food).

After doing research about things to do in Toronto, I came across this cocktail bar and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to make reservations! The Cloak was our first stop while visiting from Pittsburgh, PA. Overall, the experience was incredible. Enjoying cocktails at The Cloak was my favorite activity that I planned for the trip. The vibe was awesome with a speakeasy feel. There was great background music, dim lighting, candles, and comfortable seating. The cocktails were hand crafted and delicious!! (See pictures below) The staff was more than friendly and welcoming to customers. The bartender was amazing and quickly made high quality drinks to fit our requests. It was evident that the general manager puts his heart and soul into the business. He was so kind and created great conversation with my boyfriend and I. Again, VISIT THE CLOAK!! Make those reservations and you won't be disappointed. I know that my next trip to Tronto will include a visit back!

Great venue--very nice aesthetic. Excellent cocktails, tasty, but pricey. Poor service: slow, disinterested, and stand-offish. They tried to limit our time at the restaurant when they confirmed our reservations--very uncool. Charged an auto-gratuity of 20% without informing us or drawing our attention to this fact.
