There was a sign on the door that they were closed for furnace issues but there was no contact from staff or the restaurant about this.

Took my sister here for her birthday! The food was amazing, the cocktails were fantastic (highly recommend the plum sour)! A little pricey, but worth every penny!

Wonderful service, fantastic food. Went on a quiet night for an outing with my bestfriend and we both shared a bottle of wine, charcuterie, and the cheese fondue. Best meal I’ve ever had! The manager served us on this particular night, he was fantastic and made the entire evening that much more enjoyable. Can’t say enough about this place!

Always have a great meal at The Living Room. It was the first time I had tried their fondue, and it was the best cheese fondue I've had! Went for the fondue special on a Thursday and got the chocolate for free, was also amazing. Beef tartare to start as it is my favorite in the city!

We came to the Living Room for dinner this weekend for a bachelorette party. I’ve been to the restaurant a few times and have always had a wonderful time but this time was different. We were sat outside on the patio, which I feel was appropriate for a group of our size (8 people - 2 tables of 4) but the patio had a much more casual vibe than inside and I had requested inside tables when making the reservation. The server did his best to serve us but near the end of our stay decided to cut off one of our friends from ordering more to drink. She was not intoxicated by any means and had accidentally knocked over a drink (which anyone could, drunk or not!). We felt like it was inappropriate and his tone seemed very condescending towards her. When she tried to defend herself he completely dismissed her. We were also shocked to see how expensive our bill was having only ordered a few dishes at each table and a few drinks each. I’m not saying we didn’t expect it to be on the pricier side with a large group, but when we asked the server about the bill he didn’t care to explain. 18% gratuity was added to our bill but since we had 2 tables of 4 that should not have happened. We should have been given 2 separate bills with the option to choose our tip. I’m disappointed that our night did not turn out as expected and I hope you consider my review for future dining experiences.

It is a nice patio, however, the service is terrible.
Our server was rude and did not come to check on is often.
The drinks were also terrible.

One of my favourite places to eat. We had a patio seat which was perfect for the weather. Food is always amazing, and our server attentive. Shared the panzanella salad (delist) and the gnocchi as a main, which was a good call as it is quite filling for a “small” plate. Dessert was this amazing frozen yogurt with lemon and fresh berries, so refreshing and light! The salmon was our other main, and simply scrumptious!

I have never been disappointed at the Living Room. Food is always outstanding and the service excellent. I believe it is exceptional value versus many price comparable restaurants. Owner Cliff is always pleasant and happy to engage in intelligent conversation. I have never felt rushed or unappreciated at Living Room. The beef tartare is splendid but really so is everything I have had the pleasure of indulging in here. A true 17th Ave gem!

The Living Room continues to over a great patio experience, even in COVID times. All health safety precautions were being taken which set our minds at ease. Our server was friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. The menu was a bit limited but we still found something we each wanted and enjoyed a great evening out here.

I just wished they had AC when my guests and I were dining there. It was unbearably hot inside and other guests including ourselves were distracted from enjoying the dining experience from it.
