We had a great time. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious, the main disappointment was the Welsh Rarebit. The rarebit was ok, but in all fairness, something I’d leave off the menu entirely.
We’ll be back.

Great all round - food, service, music and design. Entrees and starters were great and plenty flavorful but the Caesar salad was a bit bland and watch out for the marshmallows on the “s’mores” dessert.....needs more work to get that open fire roasted effect.

I would go back for the burger. Kale salad was dressed well. Fish sticks I would not recommend. Service definitely needs improvement, our burgers came out before our appetizers.

Delicious casual dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meals from the deep fried pickles to the Caesar salad with a nice bit to the fish and chips. And of course the local and on-ire brewed beer was quite tasty.

We waited for about an hour for our food after ordering (they had some sort of issue in the kitchen). After all of that, there was no compensation for the wait on our bill. Quite disappointing.

Though primarily a business meal location since it’s in the financial district, it’s a great place for weekend brunch. It wasn’t crowded. so great service...but the food is excellent.

The restaurant itself was great, and the food tasted great too - but it took them 40 minuted to bring our food out and I'm still unsure why it took them so long. We had to eventually ask where our food was the worker there seemed very unapologetic about it. Even though the food was okay, the whole waiting time really threw us off.

Made a reservation online for the summwrlicious, but when we arrived on time we were told that summerlicious 3 courses lunch would be served in a span of 1.5 hours, so if we didn't have that long of a lunch time we we're advised to stay with regular menu.
We stuck with the summerlicious, but the longest waits we had to endure were not the courses, but the condiments or water refills we were promised and completely forgotten. It did take us 1 hour and about 20 minutes to finish up everything including paying the bill, among this time we did wait for the desperately required hotsauce for our main course for over 20 minutes.

Food was OK, interesting at most. The smoked pork belly was not bad with the habenero hot sauce but my friend and I both had to pull out broken star anise pieces from our mouths as they're not removed but hidden at the bottom of the meat. Chewing on star anise is never pleasant.

Yes we were pre-warned that the restaurant was very busy but on the side we were sitting there were quite a few empty tables. The service was extremely slow. From getting our table to settling our bill it took 2 1/2 hours. And that was for a summerlicious lunch. The prix fixe menu that most restaurants usually prepare in advance....
Food was decent but nothing wowed us (the prawns were a bit disappointing to be honest).
Overall mediocre experience

Booked with no assumptions for summerlicious and was pleasantly surprised the whole way through. Server was attentive and nice, dishes came quickly, plates were attractive and satisfying. Loved the spinach pappardelle. Decor on the inside was nice and had just enough seating and lots of standing room. Interested in the party room downstairs.

This was the worst service ever that I have faced in Toronto! Took 15 minutes before the first server showed up, after 55 minutes- we did not get our food. What was on the menu as a salad was deep fried cauliflower- looked like leftovers from another restaurant.
In spite of warning about my allergy, they served me items with allergens leading me to fall sick.

First time dining at Batch as a result of Summerlicious. Lovely setting, great location, very spacious and not noisy at all.

We tried the Summerlicious menu, and I want to try the regular menu next time as I saw your Fish and Chips and it looked really yummy.

Service was top notch and very friendly. My family and I ended up buying 7 bottles of beer as well.

Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.

We were looking for a place to have breakfast with friends and discovered Batch. It was during FIFA, so we enjoyed great food, great game and a fantastic ambiance. The waiter was possibly the best I have ever had. He was lovely with a capital L. He should give training. My eggs were poached to perfection.

When I arrived at the restaurant on June 1st at 12:30pm it was very busy. There were at least two large parties in the dining room where I was seated. The service was very slow, the food order took about 40 minutes to arrive (after I had to flag down the server and ask her what was taking so long). When the food finally arrived it was not very good (ploughman's sandwich, never again!!), and the server ran away so quickly I had to yell at her to get her attention as I needed another drink. I will not be visiting this restaurant again and I will NOT be recommending it to ANYONE!!!
