The food tasty, and very nice complimentary glass of wine. Unexpected and appreciated. Our server (s) were fun and thoughtful. We'll recommend you, and be back!

Website says they have brunch, shows a brunch menu…I showed up, they said they didn’t serve brunch or ever have a brunch menu ??? Staff was very rude.

Post wedding brunch. Booked for 1 pm. Tables were all dirty when we showed up, had to wait for clear/set, after being ignored at the door for at least five minutes, even though the restaurant was empty. We sat, took at least another five to ten minutes to get (empty) water glasses, then finally menus and water. After anothe five minutes or no service, finally practically yell at someone to ask a question - where’s the brunch menu? Surprise, no brunch. Apparently brunch ends at 11:30 am - this isn’t posted anywhere (at least not anywhere easy to find). There was no apology, he seemed completely uninterested in providing any sort of service. We left. Gave the food three stars because we didn’t eat any.

This was my second time over at The Fortunate Fox and I honestly believe it’ll be my new go-to spot. The food is great and the servers are so polite. It’s in a great area, right by the subway station and lots of bars within walking distance. Love the vibe and everything about this place!

Although I reserved the table, they did not have the table. The waitress put me on wait for 15 mts and then another 20-30 mts wait for menu order. While we were waiting, the brunch hour was over. The food was extremely salty.

The restaurant service was great. But the ambience of patio outside is kinda alright. I would’nt say it was amazing.

I didn’t know that my date has a dairy free dietary restriction. If you do, this place is not the right choice 😅 I felt bad that he got to choose only one item that was dairy free from the entire menu.

The wings were some of the best I've had in Toronto. Buffalo chicken nachos were tasty. Server was prompt and friendly, excellent service. Only thing I would change is there is no price for doubles so even rail liquor is overly expensive at the moment. Would definitely recommend/return.

Highly recommend the salmon, comes with the most delicious potatoes you've ever tasted and a fabulous sauce. Started the evening off with their Margharita special - very good, nice and salty! and on sale! Service is excellent, friendly, efficient but not obnoxious. Tables nicely spaced with greenery, great atmosphere! Good place for dinner or drinks, I'll go back for sure! and a two minute walk from St.George station - Love it!

Food was OK, but not the best pub food. Chicken pot pie was salty and average tasting. Salads looked almost sad. Drinks were decent though. Service was very friendly but a little bit slow even though only few customers were there.

Loved this place and will definitely be returning! The spirits list was extensive and reasonable priced, all their cocktails were creative and tasty, our server was absolutely wonderful and the food options (even on the late night menu) were definitely a step above standard bar food. Even the nachos, a classic bar food staple, really stood out! Overall a great experience and can’t wait to return!

Not good. I arrived for my reservation only to stand at the door waiting to be seated and overheard a waitress tell customers that she was too busy to check something for them but she would when she found the time. She ignored me standing there. I was eventually seated. Waited for a waitress to order a drink. When my Negroni finally arrived I was told “heads up we ran out of compari so we made your drink with Aperol. Let me know if you don’t like it. I eventually left after telling the waitress that the drink was no good and my appetite for staying had all together vanished. Also, very loud rock music. The vibe of this place did not match the decor represented in the photos on Open Table. Very disappointed.

this is just a casual bar/grill/pool table kind of place. However, the service was extraordinarily friendly, and the food so good. I had the salmon dinner- cooked perfectly, potatoes and asparagus. Five Stars!

Had the nachos with chicken. Have to say wasn't the best - cheese wasn't melted through (enough said) . As for the service there was no follow-up after the food was served , nor second offer for drinks or top up for water ( which by the way was served with no ice) can't say I'd make the effort to go back.

The short rib poutine was great! Their drinks are very creative and tasty. I had the 'Fox News' and it was quite refreshing.

We also ordered the peppercorn steak and shortrib mains, and both were okay. The Short Rib dinner wasn't particularly inspired. It was much more in the style of a "meat and potatoes" British pub meal, rather than anything fancy. Tasted almost like packaged gravy and the shortribs were more like a shaved pot roast type of meat.

Otherwise the ambiance and service was solid.

It's been a long time since I've gone to a restaurant and enjoyed the ambiance this much. The restaurant was full and I didn't feel like I could hear any other conversations; the acoustics were really well controlled. The food was delicious (though, they definitely need more cheese on their nachos) and the drinks were very reasonably priced. Especially for a hotel bar/restaurant, the value was very good. Will definitely be back and recommend The Fortunate Fox to friends.

A surprisingly nice dining experience at a great value. When you walk in there's the wallet butterflies of being in a really nice space in a good neighborhood in Toronto but the value was impeccable. Appetizers were large enough to share with a table of 4, drinks were affordably priced, refills were plentiful and prompt. Entrees were appropriately priced and well prepared. There's nothing more disappointing paying $20 for a burger and regretting every bite. Not here! Great burger, dressed well, good bun and a healthy amount of fries to go along. Also well under $20 for their burgers. Well done! (My burger was a nice medium.)

What a terrible experience! The service was horrendous! Waited 20 minutes to order our drinks. Had to ask the waiter 3 times for water for the table to the point that I actually had to leave my table and find him to ask for the water for the 3rd time! We were on a time constraint because we had a movie to catch and told the waiter as soon as we sat down. When he brought the food, we asked for the check so we could just pay and leave as soon as we were done eating. We asked two more times and he didn’t bring it. Finally got up and had to go and pay at the bar. Waited a good 7 minutes until any of the bar staff even bothered to speak to us or even bother looking up from what they were doing. We told them the about our experience- no apology at all. He handed us the check in a very rude manner. No thank yous, no apologiesa huge disappointment. What a bad reflection for the hotel too.

It was Christmas Day and they were open for service! I’m thankful to the cooks and and service staff for a wonderful dinner and looking after my family when they couldn’t be with theirs.
I enjoyed all the dishes we ordered as I ate off everyone’s plate. Pulled pork nachos and poutine were good share items that everyone enjoyed. Drink list was reasonably priced. Staff were lovely up to and including the security man.
I will absolutely stop in again next time I’m in that area.

We generally request and are given a special table. We are 5 ladies who come at 1pm and there's no telling how long we'll be there. We left at 7:45 last Sunday after brunch, afternoon coffee with dessert and then a light supper!!! We are treated very well by staff, even staff who know us but are not serving our table. Ruth especially. Merry Christmas and thanks for everything!!! Maxine

Disappointingly loud ... has the ambiance of a sports bar - lot's of yelling from the restaurant goers, TV screens with sports and darts (sigh). Last year when we had our Christmas gathering there, it had a more elegant vibe. Definitely for a younger, more "energetic" crowd. Not my scene any more sadly. Service was very good but we were situated in a very cold area by the door. When the restaurant is half full I am mystified when you get seated in a really uncomfortable place in the restaurant - with an icy draft up your back. Sorry, wish I could be more positive. However, our server was quite good - very attentive and prompt.
