I found the food quite dry and over fried especially the chicken fingers

A lot of menu items unavailable. Menu items that were available did not taste fresh.
Music was too loud.

The food was okay and the server was really nice. They ran out of steak, however the atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was pretty busy! The kids meal comes with with a meal plus a free drink and a scoop of vanilla icecream. The waiter didn't know about the free drink or dessert that went with the kids meal until we showed her on the menu app.

Slow service for lunchtime even tho we ordered appetizers and mains at the same time. Waiter disappeared after serving the appetizers and didn't return. Most other patrons ate and left by the time we received our mains, and they were cold.

This restaurant was awful. Not sure how it ended up on open table. I would not go here the services was friendly but food came slowly and was cold. The food itself gave my group stomach problems after. I absolutely do not recommend going here.

staff are very friendly, sweet, our hostess was very helpful and keen to recommend good dishes, running all over the place with a nice smile.
We ordered epic cheeseburger and shrimp tacos, the burger was nice (presentation and taste).
The shrimp tacos tasted ok (average) shrimp could use a couple more mins on the grill, but presentation was horrible.

Food was amazing I had the social club I think it was called with the spinach salad it was so good my date had the mushroom burger and the truffle fries
Truffle fries were not the greatest
wine was delicious but pricy and only complaint besides the fries was the prices for the add on seems expensive

Amazing evening on the patio in October!! The weather was around 18 degrees.
The tables were spaced so we felt safe and the ambiance was great.

Service was a little slow- could have been more attentive.

And, would have liked a few more vegetarian options... Even the salads had meat!
The Chicken Wings were AWESOME.

We went for a group team lunch - and, I'd definitely go back again for this type of event.

The waiter didn’t really check in on us much. We asked for hot sauce, and never got it. Then he would take forever to declutter our table. Didn’t even give us napkins lol.

Also, it was a bday event. Which was on the reservation. At the end, he was like oops sorry you guys should’ve told me before, so I could get you the brownie or something.

I’ve been here before, and usually it’s way better . Not this time

We had a great table on the rooftop tucked under an awning just in front of the bar so if the elements changed we were covered. The wait staff were friendly. We weren't in a hurry so the time to receive our food wasn't an issue. The food was served hot and it was a big portion. I had the truffle fries and the UFO burger. They were both enjoyable. We enjoyed our night and didn't feel rushed to order or to leave so it was very pleasant.

We eat here fairly regularly, our go-to place in the ‘hood. Food wasn’t perfect, but they quickly fixed the error and gave a discount without us asking for it. I wish they had more beers on tap, but I understand during COVID they aren’t operating fully. Will be back.

Food was absolutely terrible! Made a reservation big deal still had to wait for an appropriate table. The restaurant felt very dirty as well. Wouldn’t waste my time returning.

Love the outdoor patio, it’s very spacious and they have umbrella covering just in case.

This is the perfect spot for a night with friends or casual date.
Their shots are really tasty and service is friendly.

BUT be prepared for a long wait for your bill. Usually not enough staff for busy weekends.

The food here used to be great, but now it's just alright at best. They also took off some of their best dishes from the menu! The waitstaff was friendly, but until the food situation gets sorted, I likely wont be returning.

The only comment I would make is, rooftop patio and washrooms are not fully accessible. As someone with knee problems, the stairs were an issue.

Checked the website before making a reservation and their site says they offer brunch. However, when we got there we were informed that they had stopped servicing brunch all together, so we were disappointed.
The meal I ended up ordering was tasteless, although the portion size was very large. Friendly and efficient service. Patio is nice and spacious.

The place was very dirty. No sanitizer to be found. View to kitchen area scary. Would not eat there again. I think public health should check them out. Tables and other surfaces not wiped at all.

The service was kind of slow. We were told their draught beer was coming out flat but saw other tables with draught beer that was not flat. It took a while to be greeted by someone once seated, and took a while to get our bill.

The rooftop patio had a nice atmosphere and the food was good. They were accommodating to the substitutions to my meal.

Great tasting food. Great service. They’ve made their patio better than indoor dining.
So nice to have this place to go to during the pandemic and afterwards.

Great restaurant. I live it and their food, the only reason i didn't give them a 5 start is be because i reserved a table for 2 on the outdoor patio and i had read there are heaters, so wasn't too happy the table for 2 didn't have a heater so was really cold. We were given a tiny potable heater that did do much to help. And also there was water leaking through the patio roof and onto my head and food. But given the times, that helped me get out. I was tired of eating at home and just needed some fresh air.

Only patio access due to Covid protocols in city of toronto, however, both manager and server were excellent. The rooftop patio is nice a big with some cover. The space heater at the table was a nice touch.

The wait staff was quick, friendly, and great overall. The food was good overall, the menu is really limited due to the covid situation, not the restaurant's fault. Roof patio is the best spot to be.

Had a lovely COVID dinner. Felt quite safe with requirement to wear masks entering restaurant and going to washroom or anywhere else inside, except when sitting at your table. Seated at an outdoor patio table which was great. Much quieter than usual with the tables and patrons being physically distanced, which felt good and safe. Server Heather was terrific dealing with our food restrictions and questions, and making us feel comfortable, not rushed, as we were just taking our time. Food itself was quite good, all in all no complaints at all and a lovely time.
