We offer hand made cocktails with specially sourced fresh ingredients, paired with a menu designed to be enjoyed in unison.
Our goal is to educate, entertain and gratify with Libations from the bar and Fare from the kitchen.
Service was decent. Food was under par. Was very loud.
Better suited for drinks with friends then a date with your wife.
Great fish tacos and casual vibe.
Excellent and reliable place for business lunch. Great selection of items and is always very tasty. Sometimes service can be slow when it's busy but can usually get in and out within 1 hour.
We choose SpeakEasy21 because of the location.
We were welcomed promptly.
The restaurant was half-full with several servers standing around.
We ordered drinks but I was informed they were out of my favourite.
The menu was very limited but we took our time making our decision.
The server seemed impatient to take our order.
We asked her to come back.
When came back a few minutes later she glared at me looking annoyed.
The food arrived promptly. It was good but there was nothing remarkable about it.
We finished our meal/drinks and again servers were gathered in a corner talking to each other and ignoring the patrons. We were done eating for a while and finally caught a server's attention and paid the bill.
We left and none of the servers made eye contact with us.
Always outstanding service and great drink selection on one of the city's best patios.
All round good music, food and drink special.
Everything was great except for the bathrooms. Ew.
It was pretty good. Next door to the patio is a major construction site so the ambiance is definitely under reno too. Food was great tho!
Perfect day to sit out on the patio and enjoy the summer weather and the fantastic food served at this establishment! My friend and I will definitely be back to enjoy the patio views and food before the end of the summer. Polite staff and prompt food service was very much appreciated on our lunch hour. Well done!!
Waitress is very rude
The chicken fingers was a bit too crispy for me so I had to return it but the sweet potato fries were awesome!!!
Also, you should also serve Malbec by the glass.
Great casual quick bites and cocktails, quiet noisy but good atmosphere, attentive servers. Great place if you don’t want to dress up and happy with sharing plates
The only issue was that the SpeakEasy21 did not have my reservation on file, even though it's confirmed in OpenTable and an email confirmation was sent, but it worked out as they took us right away regardless.
Not really the "speak easy" atmosphere. They should probably call themselves a sports bar. Very loud, but it was a Friday night.
The staff are very friendly and attentive, it was very clean. The food was simple but very good. The drinks were tasty. It felt like a little oasis separated from the street by a wood plank wall. A very enjoyable experience.
Food was disappointing. Brussels sprouts appetizer was burnt almost to the point of being charred and aioli sauce was insufficient I mask the burnt residue. Fish tacos were deep fried and too oily and cilantro and other fresh ingredients could have helped lift the dish into something more tasty but none of that was done. So the quality of the fish tacos is about the poorest I have experienced in the GTA anywhere this year. Staff were helpful and place had a nice vibe with patio hopping in good weather but food quality was the problem. My partner’s dinner was also poor — oily and heavy steak frites and uninspired steak.
Great ambiance, patio was perfect and able to easily carry on a conversation.
Food and service were above average. Noise level made it difficult to have a business lunch. Overall was fine and I would return here.
Speakeasy was a great spot! We had dinner and drinks on the patio (which is perfectly located and completely in the shade) and the mood was great, lively, and not über pretentious/douchey compared to a lot of other spots in the financial core. It gets quite noisy because there are so many people, but we were okay with that.
Service was on point. I had the steak salad, which was okay. Nothing special. The tacos look amazing, so I’ll try those next time :)
Best patio in the downtown core, great food and great deals.
I've been there several times and always a good experience. Only down side was this time when I ordered fish tacos, they were really underfilled with small fish pieces. It was like they ran low of fish and slaw, so threw on whatever was left. Wouldn't order that again and I love fish tacos. Waiter was great. Everything else good.
The fish tacos are the best I've had in the city so far. Service is great.
Very good and friendly service, food was tasty and a good value.
SpeakEasy has a nice patio for outdoor eating. Inside the ambience was not a hit with me with high top tables and chair/stools that are hard to push in under table. Food and service were good. I'd go back but likely would try other places with a different vibe.
Thank you Harry and Kalya great experiences!
An unbelievably fantastic waitress. Warned me on the high price of a wine that I chose. She was the best !
Good spot for girls lunch! Wine and appetizers! Wine is a bit high priced but good variety.
Gave us a terrible table next to the kitchen prep area; big knife next to table was ominous. Really loud given they also host networking events for interns.
Great salads !!!
Good food. Need to get an espresso machine. Won’t come back unless I can get a real coffee.
Awesome time at Speak Easy 21. The food here is amazing! Great service and fun ambiance.
We needed something pre-theatre -- having just bought the tickets, all the local restaurants were booked. It was a torrential downpour, so I looked for something in the PATH system. We totally lucked out. It turned out to be Taco Tuesday and they were fantastic! The service was attentive and friendly. We finished in plenty of time to walk almost the entire way underground to the Royal Alex Theatre.I'd highly recommend it!
Way too loud for a casual get together ....
Very crowded and very loud ... ordered a cocktail from the bar that was watered down, had to send it back. It would only 6p and they were out of the fish tacos. Food was very good.
The service was excellent so was the food. Very friendly, east going and professional.
Food was very tasty with a lot of flavor.
Great food and service was excellent. Highly recommend the place.
Very good food and the staff were really friendly and fast! It was really loud though so made conversation difficult.
Went for a group lunch with work. Had more people than I reserved for, but they accommodated us smoothly. Fast service, good food.
Good burgers, both the beef and turkey. Good fries,. Could be more crispy and brown but very tasty. Great service.
