About The Loose Moose Tap & Grill
Welcome to the new Loose Moose, featuring a brand new menu and the largest draught beer selection in downtown Toronto.
Since pouring our first pint in 1989, a lot has changed at The Loose Moose. And yet, so much has remained the same. Our space is different, but our address isn’t. Our business has grown, but we’re still independent. And now, even with the most draught beers downtown, we’re no beer snobs. Never have been. Never will be.
After all, staying true to yourself is how you make new friends - and keep old ones. Anyone who’s stopped by The Loose Moose to unwind after work, watch the game or make a night of it will tell you the same.

The Loose Moose Tap & Grill Ratings and Reviews
I went there on Wednesday night before the hockey game and made a reservation for 6pm for 4 people because I knew the restaurant would be a little busy. It took my friends and I 30 or 40 mins before a server even came and offer ask if we wanted something to drink. I had to ask 3 times for a server to come to the table. Finally when a server did come we were able to have dinner and everything to get to the game on time .
We have come to TO to watch a Leafs game every year for the past 7 years & always book Loose Moose for pregame dinner. Food and atmosphere are always GREAT. Communication is my issue. 3 times (including this year) we were escorted to the far end of the restaurant, after I specifically asked for a table near the bar. I raised my concern each time and the problem was resolved. Why should I bother to make a reservation weeks in advance if my preference for seating is ignored? In all instances we were called the day before to confirm our reservation & still the screw ups. Love the food and the atmosphere but not the communication. We'll see what happens next time.
Much louder than expected, but not surprising as it seems to be beer and sports oriented.
Service started out great, but later on, as we must have overstayed our welcome, our waiter sent someone else to serve the last drink order
My friends credit card was used to pay for dinner, and it got “scanned” and used fraudulently for $600 that evening!!!!! Big hassle for them!!!!
Great proximity to ACC - food was good I had steak salad but for $17.95 there was maybe 2-3 oz of steak -son had the big bird deep fried chicken - he enjoyed it good batter and waffles - the tiny tablespoon of coleslaw they put on plate almost looked like it was a mistake - better if it is that small to leave off
Good service fun atmosphere
Good beer on tap
Great service, Food was decent, had a chicken club sandwich, bottom of the bread was a little soggy however it was fine for the price. A little too loud but we were there during a night there was a leaf game, so on a non sports night I would expect less noise.
Service from hostest and server was great. Food and drinks came in a timely manner. The only reason it was a great experience is because the food was just ok. We had the mac and chees sandwich and the fish tacos. The fries weren't cooked right. they were really dry and old. The rest of the food was nothing to write home about....just kind of boring and expensive.
Service was very slow. At one point there was 45 min without our server checking on us. Wasn’t packed in there either. Lots of bartenders and few servers. Food was good and ambience was good too...but hard to go back when don’t want to keep your beer glass full
Food was great!! Hostess very nice!!
We were, however, very displeased with our server. She was not pleasant to us and was rushing us out. We were there a total of 45 minutes and had drinks, appetizer and our entrees. There was 3 of us, one was in the bathroom, and the server took our drink orders and wouldn't wait for the one in the bathroom. Then at the end before we even were not our food she brought the bill and at the same time brought the machine... before we could eve look at our bill. She did not make us feel welcome and will be turned off to come back. Couldn't even tell you her name as she didn't introctuce herself. She had long dark brown hair. Thanks
The occasion was a casual night out with friends and we were all happy with the restaurant. It is fairly noisy so not good for a quiet evening or romantic night out. The food was quite good and good selection of craft beer. I had the Mexican salad with chicken and enjoyed it very much. Two others in our group had the fried chicken and one had the jerk chicken. Everybody enjoyed their meal.
Saturday night after a Jays game. In the back of the restaurant the dining room is very dark. Was very loud in there, where you have to really speak up to talk across the table. Service was good and friendly, would of rated higher, but didn't get the right change on one of our bills, paid in cash, so there is no way to verify. Food was good, and was able to get a table reservation a week ahead. Beer selection was great.
Server was great - We brought some exchange students - they enjoyed it - a little Canadiana but not too much - could use this to greater advantage. Everyone liked food. The entry is dreadful - add some lights and something that suggests the inside might actually be interesting.
