Sidecar was a comfortable, cozy dining spot with great food, great service, and great value. Highly recommend.
Our table of four absolutely loved our dinner at Sidecar. Service was truly above and beyond, particularly when it came to accommodating one of our dietary restrictions. A beautiful little spot, with food of exceedingly high value! Each of our dishes was excellent, and priced far lower than other similar restaurants. We highly recommend.
My dinner partner and I had mushroom soup and beef carpaccio appetizers and steak frites mains. (No vegans at the table, apparently). Both were excellent. Service from Brittany was wonderful. Very good value. Not a peak outstanding dining experience if you're looking for something extraordinarily amazing, but we thought it was great and would both recommend and go again.
Sidecar is always a treat. I go out a lot and this is one of my favorites. Really excellent cooking and reasonable prices. Love their chicken, risotto, salmon, salads..everything is well-prepared and the servi complements the meal.
Food was delicious . Really enjoyed the mushroom salad. Salmon was nicely done
Our server Dalya, was attentive and friendly
Would go back again in a heartbeat
The staff here are very friendly and make you feel comfortable. The food quality was excellent, and the price point was reasonable. We have done her twice now and have left completely satisfied both times. We would highly recommend this to friends and family for a cozy date night or even a small gathering.
Good food, good friendly service, reasonable prices, and an intimate homey atmosphere.
Dined here for the first time on Christmas Eve as I was looking for somewhere that was i) open and ii) warm, cozy and with a menu that felt appropriate for a special occasion. Sidecar delivered. The service, drinks, food and dessert were all wonderful and I will most definitely be back.
My wife and enjoyed
we returned after as week since we enjoyed it so much the first time
We intend to return in the near future
The short rib pasta dish was great and my wife rally liked the salmon
I always enjoy coming to Sidecar. They have a great menu and always a pleasant and cozy atmosphere
Wonderful meal. Fabulous service. Great value. Terrific evening. Not a first-time visitor and delighted on this return visit. Absolutely recommend Sidecar.
This is a local restaurant for my friend and we have enjoyed dinner there a few times as I am out of town. Sidecar is always my go to when I am in the area. You can beat the price through the week with their fixed price menus and the food is so delicious.
Food was delicious and the service was amazing ! Will be back
As always every thing was very, very good
Amazing customer service experience and prix fixe dinner menu options. Food came out as expected. Server was attentive and personable. Would definitely recommend and come back again.
Excellent food, served beautifully and, at a reasonable price
We enjoyed our dinner at sidecar. Cocktails were great. Food was excellent carpaccio was nicely season.
My pork chop was juicy and also well seasoned. Crispy chicken was big hit at our table.
We got seated upstairs, our table was a bit dark and I felt a little shuffled off away from main dining area.
We’ll probably go back but will definitely ask for table in main dining downstairs.
This restaurant is exceptional. I came tonight after my work shift, hoping to decompress and just relax for the rest of my night after a stressful day. Sidecar provided exactly this, and more. The minute I stepped in, I was approached by a lovely, relaxed hostess, who seated me at a perfect table—comfortable, spacious, wonderfully lit, no draft coming through from the door. It felt great to just sit down on a comfortable chair.
Soon after, a waitress brought me a glass of water. which I sipped on as I browsed the menu, until she came back to take my order.
I ordered a caesar salad, side of frites, and of course, an old fashioned. And let me tell you: this cocktail is a memorable one. Sidecar knows what they are doing. I was genuinely impressed by the precision of this drink—one that I’ve ordered at many different bars, and have received very mixed results over the years. The ratio of bourbon to sweet and bitter was simply divine.
And my frites were perfect as well. Crisp exterior, soft mashed potato-like inside, these potatoes were clearly just taken off the press and served fresh on my plate to my table. My caesar wasn’t too heavily dressed, as it often is at pubs I’ve been to.
I spent the rest of my stay at Sidecar reading a book and enjoying my drink and after work meal. Honestly, I left feeling sufficiently full, rejuvenated, and ready to hit the hay, just how I had wanted to spend the remainder of my night after my work shift.
If anyone has read this far into my review, I sincerely recommend you to try out Sidecar. If your experience was anything like mine, you will not be disappointed.
We first found Sidecar Restaurant during the summer and really enjoyed our meals and the outdoor patio in the back. Yesterday, we decided to make a return visit and again, we were not disappointed. The servicer was attentive without making us feel rushed and offered great advice on the wine my dinner date was interested in ordering. The beef carpaccio starter as well as our mains (salmon and butternut squash risotto) were all delicious. Would definitely recommend Sidecar Restaurant.
Our experience at Sidecar tonight was nothing short of exceptional. The service was wonderful - attentive yet unintrusive. To start we had the carpaccio, which was the best I've had in the city. Very aromatic, and the matchstick fries add an excellent crunch and variation in texture. For entrees I had the duck confit potato gnocchi, and my partner had the baked salmon with golden beets. The gnocchi is homemade and you can really tell because it is melt in your mouth delicious. The salmon was equally good. It is cooked slightly more on the rare side to keep it moist, and the beurre blanc glaze and golden beets are done perfectly, they really elevate the dish. I highly recommend this restaurant - everything from the ambience, service, and quality of the food make it a fine dining experience, but at a very reasonable price point. Will definitely be returning.
Went here for my birthday on the recommendation that the steak frites were the best in the city - and they were! No measly strips of steak - I got two hunks of beef that was perfection. Not to mention the pureed mushroom soup, fresh bread with whipped butter and white bean dip, and the creme brulee! Service was friendly and casual, if a bit slow toward the end of our meal, but I've already recommended this spot to friends!
It was such a wonderful dining experience that we started taking about when w could come back. We sat next to a regular patron, and wished we had come here sooner!
We have been visiting this restaurant for years. Always enjoy it!
Terrible service. The server barely came to our table and appeared to be very out of it. Missed two things we ordered. The pork we got was raw on the inside and we sent it back to get cooked more and they just never returned it. Overall terrible experience and would never go back.
I made a reservation to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday at Sidecar but was seated upstairs - a very different atmosphere and vibe that was actually a different restaurant and not at all what I signed up for. I accepted it thinking at least the food would be “sidecar” good but honestly, it really really wasn’t. I came for the beet salad I had many times before and loved. No longer on the and the suggested root vegetable replacement was not even close to as good. Mor like cold slaw. My pasta (cavatelli) tasted like vinegar flavoured bacon and the bacon was all bacon fat. Quite a disappointing experience I have to say and feel you should know because I used to come often and loved it. You’ve really changed and not in a good way.
Great venue, good food and attentive service. Only critique is the food came out too fast.
Everything was perfect. Another excellent evening!!
Bad service. Waiting 45 min for a glass of wine. Food was on par with pasta you get from pickle barrel or a food court. Would not return
Lovely little restaurant on College St. Simple menu, but executed so well. I've been here twice: first time had the steak frites and second time i had the half chicken. Both were solid. My girlfriend got the butternut squash risotto, which she loved. And we started with the crab cakes; they were the best I've had. Sidecar is probably the best value in Toronto if you're looking strictly at price to quality. Very good!
Salmon dinner excellent and delicious desserts. Pork chop was not tender. Not recommended.
Lovely ambience and very attentive servers. I went for a anniversary dinner and the food was delicious! I would recommend this gem to anyone looking for a lovely spot to have a date night!
This restaurant is constantly good value for very good food. This was our third visit, we have tried a number of different items each time, and all have been great.
Our first two visits we have been seated on the delightful patio. This was our first experience inside. The service was very attentive, the food arrived hot and perfectly cooked.
I must say that we have a very small group of restaurants that we go back to time after time because of value for good food and friendly service. Sidecar is now a valued member of that small group.
Amazing experience! Loved the food, service was exceptional.
As always everything was excellent. No complaints whatsoever!
Super nice restaurant - food and service first rate.
Excellent restaurant from the wait staff to the quality, presentation and taste of the magnificent food on the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised.
The service and food was very good. The ambiance was awesome . My only complaint was the mozzarella salad it had way to much garlic I couldn’t eat it . Recommend this restastaraunt.
First time there. Very happy with service, food, and value so will definitely come back.
The experience was great. The only issue was when the restaurant got busy, service came to a crawl, as they seemed unprepared and understaffed. Our server was very nice and the food was good. Their back patio is very nice, didnt know it was there till after we were seated.
