I really enjoyed this place and look forward to going back. The only reason I am giving lower ratings is that the server didnt tell us the special (we overheard another table being told) and I thought my trout was a bit undercooked. It was good and I didnt send back for a quick extra searing but it was borderline. I will go back and the ambiance is fantastic.
Very nice spot. We enjoyed our visit very much. We will return.
As always it was excellent! The food was absolutely delicious. The price fixed option was great value and had optimal choices.
I’d been to the Westerley before and enjoyed it. This time was special.
I asked the bartender for a cocktail I had before which was not on the menu any longer and he made a special cocktail that was amazing with bourbon and pomegranate. My friends had delicious Margheritias.
The latkas with smoked trout and creme fresh was mouth watering. I had the coq au vin that was delicious, friends has the mussels which were superb and the steak & frites.
We loved our dinning experience. My friends were from different school parts of TORONTO and all said they’d be back.
Just plain amazing. Everything was fabulous. Best food I've had in a long time if not ever. Highly recommended.
The serving of mussels was not as plentiful as usual, and we asked for decaf coffee and were told there wasn’t any. Not good.
Fabulous food experience !! Next level cheeseburger , steak frites , Brussel sprouts , short rib and mushroom pasta!! All off the charts delicious plus the server and staff were perfect with timing. An underrated Roncy local.
Each meal was beautiful. The mussel sauce was incredible. The skin on the fish was crispy and the meat tender. My mushroom risotto was silky and delicious.
All good except restaurant too dark.
We both enjoyed our meals immensely - the short ribs and the Prix Fixe (brussel sprouts (delicious!), steak frites (cooked exactly as ordered) and the butter tart and ice cream. Very nice atmosphere, great service and good value. Nice wine and beer selection.
Ok enough. Practical if you’re in the area.
Relaxed but good service and great food. Try the brussel sprouts!
Yummy food, attentive service, bang on martini!
Fantasic expereince, thank you for staying open on such a blizzard.
I’ve dined here since it’s opening and loved it. The last 3 times have not been as good and Friday’s dinner was terrible. Sad to say I will not be returning. It’s one thing to have an off meal meal at a favourite place, but 3 in a row tells me it’s not gonna get better.
We were a group of 5 people that hadn't seen each other in a long time - it was such a great atmosphere to catch up without feeling hurried or stressed. Our server was awesome!!
Always consistently good!
Loved the offered lamb!
The restaurant was fantastic and we had a great time. There was a party of 20 that was sat next to us- they were so loud that we couldn’t hear anyone at our table. Based on this, we’ve decided to leave early. We understand that this is beyond the control of the restaurant but it did affect our experience
Noise level was quite high. At some point, I thought the server would tell one of the patrons to lower his voice. This incident would not prevent me to go again but I would not recommend for a romantic dinner.
It was a pleasant surprise in a neighbourhood where we thought we had exhausted the restaurant options and passed by the Westerly a few times. Absolutely fantastic experience all around.
First time eating here and was very satisfied. Had the braised ribs based on a friends recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal. Felt homemade and prepared with care and love. Kudos to the kitchen staff. Couldn’t taste the coffee in the ribs though but maybe that’s just me.
Drinks were really good too. Normally I’m not a big drinker but the bourbon watermelon sours were perfect on a warm summer night and they just went down so smooth. Highly recommended.
Overall a great experience will looking forward to our next dinner at the Westerly.
We love Westerly. We live in the neighborhood and have been coming here a few times a month for the past 8 years. It it`s like our second kitchen when we don`t feel like cooking or have something to celebrate - it is that comfort of knowing-exactly-what-to-expect place. The quality of the food and the service are constantly on par. I love their wine selection (Bogle Petite Syrah is my absolute fave) and Kyle is always mixing interesting and delicious cocktails. I brought business partners to the restaurant as well and had positive feedback on the type and quality of food. My favorite neighborhood hangout!
I love everything about this spot. The brussel sprouts never fail to impress anyone I bring there and our server was attentive and super familiar with the menu.
Best food and very best waitress (July 6th)
Everyone in our group loved the food and the service.
Restaurant got really busy after we arrived and so entrees took a bit longer than we expected but the food was very good. My wife said her burger was among the best she has had. Very enjoyable meal.
Great location, and the food was awesome.
A great night spent celebrating a friend's birthday! A local gem with long tenured staff that get to know you (and you them) and appreciate your business.
There was only 1 server, who also doubled as the bartender, for the whole restaurant...so to say that service was prompt would be an overstatement. The wine list is limited, so we asked for a recommendation for a sweetish drink...what was prepared was definitely tart. I asked for my steak to be medium well to well done.... specifically said "no pink" and it came back almost bloody. It is like the server wasn't even listening.
I won't be going back and I certainly won't be recommending this place to anybody.
Burger was great! Service, as always was good.
Ambiance is lovely, urban with out being trendy. The bar is a great place to grab a drink or even have dinner.
Staff is authentic and very much focused on looking after you.
Always a great staple in the hood!
Thanks for the seasonal tastes & interesting cocktails!
Fun spot, low key and great staff!
Great meal with friends, great service as always. Our local go to restaurant.
Comfortable, friendly and delicious. Would love to come again.
Guy at bar ignored me when I came in -- just left me standing in front of him while he avoided eye contact. I had a reservation. It was not at all busy.
I had the steak/frite which was very good and a side of brussel sprouts which were perfect. The food that I had was good, just found the menu to be lacking. Pricing a bit on the high side for portion size, but otherwise fine. Ambiance is good, but chairs/flooring make it less cozy than it could be.
Cozy atmosphere, no loud music playing so it's easy to have a conversation. Amazing food and the service was friendly and fast. It's small so definitely get a reservation.
We were a party if 3 on a very cold Sunday evening wanting a roast. The restaurant had only just opened when we arrived so we were their first customers but soon more people arrived.
We chose the special of the day rack of lamb.
It was delicious, meat cooked perfectly pink, Veggie good and presentation very good. Overall it was exactly what we wanted. The choc mousse dessert was good as well and there was no problem in just ordering one with 3 spoons.
We wil definitely be returning to taste the duck
Great dinner with my husband. He had the steak frites and his steak was perfectly medium rare. So juicy and tender, we both thoroughly enjoyed it lol! I had the french onion soup, which was served classically and very hot! Delicious!
Service, food and attentiveness were great.
And the bartender's crafted cocktail to start was superb!
Food was absolutely delicious. I've been multiple and they are consistent.
