Nice location. Good food. Right across the street from the Orbit Room. Great venue for live entertainment. Excellent service at Sidecar...
Very nice surprise. For some reason I thought this restaurant was more of a bar from the outside. Inside was romantically lit with a nice bar seating area as well. Food was really tasty and the staff was very accommodating to any dietary requests. I recommend the salmon. We were a little forgotten at the end and had to ask for coffee but in all fairness my friend and I were dependent in conversation. I would definitely go back.
Service was slow. Food was amazing, but my steak had quite cooled down by the time I got it. Same with my appetizer.
Food and service was good. I was a little annoyed when we were charged $2 extra for water which was brought to our table. Like any restaurant they offered us water when we sat down. When menus came 5 minutes later we saw that their water is some kind of special water which they charge money for, and it isn't actually just a courtesy. Had we known this we would have declined the extra charge for a fancy glass of tap water.
Other then that mild annoyance, the dinner was good.
GOod food however poor lighting. I like to see what I’m eating
With so many restaurants to choose from we almost always choose Sidecar for wonderful food and great service at a reasonable price.
Great location, polite and polished service, and FANTASTIC food! Went for Valentine's Day dinner and it was the perfect choice. Caesar salad with bacon to start was so delicious and highly recommend any of the risotto dishes for entrees - mouthwatering! Truly loved this restaurant, will definitely be going back!
Prix fixe menu from Sunday to Thursdays are excellent value & really yummy food.
MY wife and I used to go here all the time. We both got VERY sick this time. Notified the restaurant.
We could not have been made more welcome - from being addressed by my first name at the door and the offer to hang up my coat , to the attentive yet never intrusive service , the excellent dinners ( with a substitution ) and lots and lots of sparkling water ( for $2 total for both of us !!) to the tour of the " private " dining room upstairs - to - wait for it - being allowed to finish our conversation and then requesting the bill (!) ( rather than having it plunked down in front of us -we were delighted . We will be back and will recommend it to all our friends .
Very good food and attentive, friendly service
From the moment we walked in the Sidecar team made us feel at home and did a great job handling the meal for our picky group of 7. There were also no issues when we changed the reservation an hour before the booking. The food was very good, and the service was prompt and professional. A fun night out with good food at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
Great staff and service! They even accommodated us when we added on an extra person at the table. Food was super tasty as well!
THE best steak frites! Lovely and cozy. Great service. Highly recommend.
Food was great and prices reasonable for what you were getting. I had the steak frite and the steak was great but the fries were super! Chocolate torte for dessert was lovely. Overall a very nice meal...
A little slow with the service and the kitchen despite not being that busy.
Very happy overall.
We had a bit of confusion with our reservation but the staff did an great job accommodating us. Both food and cocktails were excellent, loved the carbonara and the crab cakes.
Dinner was excellent as always. Everything else, service, ambiance were all perfect.
My husband and I were celebrating a long-awaited date night and Sidecar was great. The food was delicious and the service was attentive.
Enjoyable evening and great value. Steak frites, salmon and pasta with short ribs all excellent.
We returned to Sidecar once again because it is our “special place” for important nights. It didn’t disappoint. The food was amazing as always; fresh, hot, delicious and ample. We enjoyed fabulous wine and food, lovely ambiance and great service. We were located at the end of the restaurant so we could sit together (instead of opposite each other) and the outside wall was a little chilly. Apart from that it was fabulous.
Accomidated for my group of 14 people. Food was fantastic, and great quick service with friendly staff. Will definitely return and recommend.
We were treated excitedly well from the moment we came in until we left and were not rushed. The food and drinks were excellent.
I had a great birthday dinner at sidecar! The steak frites were delicious! Service was amazing and ambiance was great! Thank you!
Great food, atmosphere, and service! Everything was affordably-priced and the portion sizes were perfect. I would 100% return.
Great service, ambience and food! Good place to have dinner and drinks with friends or go on a romantic date with your special someone! Sidecar has a nice vibe where you can have great conversations and not worry about yelling across the table. Their lemon vanilla cheesecake is to die for!!!
Quite nice. Lovely server. Tasty food. You can tell that the menu is a small menu they do really well. Housemade hummus : amazing!
A nice meal. Everyone enjoyed the evening. Great find in the Little Italy neighborhood.
Always one of my favorites..and I eat out a lot.
Well-prepared tasty food. Great service at a reasonable price. A gem.
As always, the food, service, value were all excellent. Relaxing evening.
Great ambiance, was able to have a conversation with my date and not be disturb by much noise
Great service. Good food.
Enjoyed a wonderful night out with friends at Sidecar last weekend. I can't think of another restaurant at this price point that is as good or dependable. Exceptional mushroom risotto with excellent variety of mushrooms and very good concentration. Wine list good with very reasonable pricing. Very nice service as well. Menu would be improved by more seasonal change but highly recommended.
Sidecar is a quaint gem in little italy, that carries an international menu that changes seasonally. The food is extremely well crafted, portions are reasonable, and not over sized. The cost is modest, with dinner around $50 per person including a glass of wine.
The ambiance is cozy, and great for a romantic dinner, or get together with friends.
Great prix fixe menu option including app, main and dessert. They mix the best cocktails too. Friendly service with fantastic food.
As usual, dining at Sidecar was top notch on many levels. Service and food were exceptional.
Tried this restaurant following the high recommendation of an acquaintance this summer. And it didn't disappoint. Meals reasonably priced. Delicious canape spread to start. Steak cooked to perfection. And while I didn't have dessert, my friend enjoyed a perfect chocolate concoction. We couldn't have been more pleased. While not located in my residential area, it's well worth the TTC ride. And will definitely look forward to returning!
Sidecar has always been consistently delicious regardless of menu choice. The staff is always friendly and you can always expect the same level of cuisine and service. It's one of my favourite places on College St... and one that never disappoints.
Very forgetable, overly spiced dishes. The creme brulee was the highlight of the meal. Wont be going back.
Good food, good service, fair price - especially the fixed price alternative and 1/2 bottle of wine option.
Sadly, this will be our last time dining at sidecar. It used to be one of our regular date spots but the service was so poor and the food has really gone down hill. I don’t know if the server was just overwhelmed but we were not asked how anything was at any point during our meal and our drinks sat empty for a long time. We eventually had to ask a support person to order some wine. I found a hair in my risotto and it sat in front of me for 20 minutes because he had disappeared. Rip sidecar. You will be missed.
