The Saint Tavern is a Gastropub, serving food and drinks to the locals and travelling tourists. Bistro tables line the front, capacious booths deck the back and stool chairs furnish the bar area. Sports broadcasts are played on the mounted screens and Eurythmics echo the interior without being intrusive. The waiting staff and the bartenders at the Saint Tavern are personable and courteous, on foot to suggest platter and pitcher recommendations and facilitate the patrons with their queries.
Featuring in the menu are snacks, starters, mains and a dessert speech. Asparagus, beet salad, pig popcorn, saint cheeseburger, striploin steak, cheddar pork belly and duck nuggets are some of the highlights. The Saint Tavern also serves an extensive menu of beverages which include St-Ambroise stout, hefeweizens, Spearhead pale ale, French and German pilsners and Austrian Radler.
I had heard a lot about this place, so I was excited to go (especially for the burger). Also, the summerlicious menu looked great. The place is gorgeous, but was pretty quiet for a Friday night - which is not a great sign. The service was friendly by very slow (I wanted to order more drinks, but they took so long to make and the server dropped by so rarely). When they arrived, the cocktails were delicious and well-priced. The burger did not live up to the hype. The meat was just fine, and there was too much bread in the bread-to-meat-to-toppings ratio. The fries were however very good. Especially disappointing was the dessert - clearly cheap ice cream really brought it down. Overall, I would give it another try - it seems like it could be great, so maybe it was just an off night.
The waitress spilled olive oil on my boyfriends pants, twice. The food was not worth what I paid for. The place was nice enough.
This once fun and lively restaurant feels like it's going out of business. It was very quiet for a Thursday night with only one waitress on for the whole place. The wine list is pathetic, with 6 bottles on it yet only 3 were actually available. The Saint's best days are behind it.
It's a hipster place so I was thrilled that they were so good about having a kid there. Lots of fun and very good food.
A bit pricey and noisy but food was delicious.
Very reasonably priced and the donuts were a standout but we all felt the rest of the food was just ok. Service was good.
Omelet was fluffy and delicious. Coffee good. Sadly the recipe for the cornbread has changed and become sweeter. Which is ok I guess. The potatoes were yummy as always
Overall good and consistent place. My medium rare steak was closer to medium well, and the frites are too thin and cooked to dark and crispy, so not very tasty. The steak quality was good. My friend's medium rare was much better done. Drinks were good and music was great. It wasn't full on a Saturday night, but with a more reasonable menu could be much better.
Upon arrival the host did not even acknowledge or smile just simply walked us over to a table and set the menus down without a word. Our waiter was rude and short and took forever to take our order even though he knew that we were waiting. The food was not bad but the service was the worst service I have ever experienced here in Toronto. I would never go to this restaurant again.
