On Toronto’s busiest street, you’ll find a place bustling with energy. Where great food is served alongside crafted libations. Where lively discussions are shared. And where strangers, friends and coworkers find themselves drawn into many a shuffleboard battle.

The food and service was great! Apple Pie is a must have for dessert. And if you are vegetarian the cauliflower steak and beet salad are great choices. My only complaint would be to not get a drink with liquor. There were 4 of us dining and all were not happy with our drinks. We had a gin and tonic, rum and coke, and a vodka soda and we could barely taste the alcohol. We also had a basil hayden on the rocks and the shot barely filled the bottom of the glass. So stick to wine!

But still giving this place 5 stars as the food/service was amazing! We actually went back the next night as we enjoyed it so much.

Had the red flashed half chicken and couldn't even finish as the portion was huge for the price and it's worth to try. Had an amazing experience and love the vibe.

The highlights of the restaurants are the decor and the food. The prices were fair too.

But honestly, given the atrocious service I can not recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service. Delicious food. The most generous full rack of ribs I've ever had. The We are visitors from the UK and received a warm welcome. Would definitely eat there again if we ever go to Toronto again.

To Whom It May Concern:

We visited your restaurant on Saturday, April 6, 2019 for dinner prior to attending a show as a special occasion. We arrived early for a reservation scheduled for 5:15pm by about 10 minutes prior. The hostess wanted to seat us near to the front but we do prefer the back area where there is less noise. The hostess was not aware if seating in the back area was available as she needed to confirm there was wait staff attending the area. After confirming, she escorted us to our table. When we arrived, we noticed there were at least two other tables occupied so we were perplexed as to how the hostess was not aware that the area was not already available for seating patrons.

 

The waiter who attended us was Akhil who was quite amiable and polite yet very quick to outline the daily drink special. However, due to the noise level and his quick speaking, we did have troubles understanding him entirely. Additionally, he did come to us a few times as we were deciding on our beverage choices.

 

After having placed our order, our food arrived very quickly and was exemplary as always. We have not had a disappointing meal there yet. After Akhil took away our dinner plates, he was quick to deliver dessert menus and take our order. This too arrived quickly and was thoroughly enjoyed. After dessert and having finished our coffee, Akhil did ask if we wanted refills on our coffee to which we declined and he removed the dishes from our table but did not ask if we wanted anything else, this was around 6:00pm.

 Until this time, the service was quite satisfactory but we then had to wait about 40 to 45 minutes before Akhil came back to us after flagging him so we could get our bill. Moreover, there were a number of wait staff, including whom I believe to be a manager of sort, attending customers on both sides of our table, none of whom took the opportunity to ask us if we needed anything or if we were being looked after.

 Given the quality of food (and

Quick, knowledgable and friendly server. Tasty and enjoyable burger and fries for a quick casual dinner with a friend, who also liked the place, service and food. I can see why it's packed with customers even with its huge size. Good range on the menu. 1/2-price bottles of wine on MTW is a great marketing idea.

Reds midtown is more of a bar style restaurant with decent food and a great wine list. The beer selections could use more local craft selections but their wine list is a slice of what Reds main restaurant offers. That list is phenomenal.
I had steak frites which was nice but not outstanding. The sirloin was a bit under cooked but was o.k. The truffle fries were good but not outstanding either. Our server was excellent...very attentive and helpful.

One of the best meals I've had at a restaurant in long time! Way to go Reds! We both had the Winterlicious menu. Some restaurants skimp when it comes to Winterlicious or serve sub-par meals, but not Reds. The portions were generous and the quality was excellent.
