We enjoyed our meal. Service was fast for good but very slow for drinks. Started playing very loud music at 6:00 that took over the vibe and felt more night club and less nice bar. A bit early for that IMO. Cocktails were tasty, and the two bowls we had were good as well.

Would not recommend for vegans or vegetarians - one of the least accommodating restaurants in the core (they try to accommodate but you will end up with a salad with no dressing or with oil/vinegar only).

My executive was delayed arriving for the reservation and when I called them she was so helpful and made sure they still had a table even though they were 10-15 minutes delayed. It was a thank you lunch for a junior member of our team and it meant a lot to me to know that the table would still be there for them and he would be celebrated and get to relax for an hour or so. Thanks again!

Food was amazing, could not fault any of it. Chicken burger and hot sauce was perfect together. We also had spicy lamb pizza and a lovely quinoa and avocado salad, so fresh. 5 star review

Way too noisy and tables are basically in the middle of a big open room. Service wasn’t on the ball enough. Not a comfortable environment

I love this place, the food is excellent and the staff are all wonderful. I’ve never been disappointed.
My brother came from New York City for the weekend and ate at the Walrus Pub twice in one day.
Best place in Toronto.

Lunch today at The Walrus was enjoyable, with a couple of caveats. As was my experience from one other time, the noise levels were quite high (or energetic as Open Table prefers to call it!). In addition, I was hoping to try the spicy lamb pizza but our server indicated that it was not available today. The draft beer selection is not extensive but does contain some interesting & quite good choices (try the Great Lakes Kama Citra!) All in all the restaurant comes off a bit "corporate" in its approach but the food & beer both made up for this!

Horrible and rude server who talked back to us after punching in the wrong order. Food was decent. Manager listened and was professional, but did not go above and beyond to address the issue.

Very enjoyable lunch. Food was great - excellent quality fresh ingredients - the salmon was superb! Servers were very good - friendly but not obtrusive. Our server assisted in our selection of wine which was helpful. We will be back for sure!

Wait staff weren’t welcoming from the moment we walked in and they seemed very entitled. Two of them got into an argument at one in the night. Drinks were good. Steak was awful.

Nice interior. Thankfully music was muted until it wasn’t. You shouldn’t have to yell to speak.

Beer selection thoughtful and nicely served. Doesn’t appear to be full pints though, and actual volume not disclosed.

The server seemed very rushed and the last time she was pouring water she splashed some and almost got my colleague.

The food was good. ‘My colleague had the salmon which he said was very good, I had the lamb pappardelle. The pasta was almost too soft and the lamb was ok, I probably would have enjoyed the salmon better.

The atmosphere is great and very inviting, especially with all the windows.
