This place is okay...just that...
The food, ambience, service etc is fine. Nothing to rave about. Nothing to complain about...really...just minor issues. In any case, I wouldn't go back.

Batch is a very inviting place . The decor is great , it has big bright windows , a great menu , the food was amazing . The server we had seemed to be a bit overwhelmed on our visit but knowing everyone has a bad day I would definitely go again. Batch needs to make a gluten free menu as one of my friends has a gluten allergy and there was almost nothing there to accommodate that . They wouldn’t even make her a mashed potatoe because it was before dinner time . Our reservation began at 1 pm . So you would think they could at least make an exception in this case.

Great location. The decor is very hip. The food was delicious, with an excellent selection of in house brews. The wait and management staff were very friendly. Great spot for lunch or dinner with friends or a date night outing.

Terrible service. Server ignored allergy requests for meal, drink requests and our table generally. She never checked to see how the food was (and had to be flagged down to confirm the meal contained an allergy item, despite the request), or to see if refills of drinks were needed. Eventually another server gave us water refills and the General Manager the bill. We then got a bill from another table, then a bill charging us twice for the allergy meal which was to have been removed completely. Third time was a charm, although there shouldn’t have be any bill at all by then.

Really nice place to eat. The decoration is charming. Service was excellent : I ordered something wrong for drink and they were so nice to change it ! I appreciated it) and our waitress was smiling and nice.
We just regretted the lack of choices for the meal.

The food was just ok - I got the roast chicken and the spätzle was all wrong, it's not meant to be sweet and there were raisins in it. My boyfriend got the lamb and said it was flavourless and the two side sauces weren't good. The beer was really good but pricey at $7 each, and for $22 per plate we could have just ordered Indian food from our local place and saved money. Wish we had done that.

A funky micro-brewery with an excellent cross-section of beers, and good food served quickly. Not fine dining, but an great place to meet friends, and hold a casual business lunch.

As soon as my friend and I walked in, we noted how cute and clean everything was. Service was perfect, friendly and attentive. Food was excellent, presentation as well as taste/quality. My friend ordered the croque Madame, I ordered the raspberry pancakes with brown butter hollandaise and bacon on the side... It was a decadent, delicious lunch.

We like the ambience and design of the resto. Food was great...when we finally got it. Always nice when a resto comps something when wait verges on the ridiculous. This one did not.

I went to this restaurant during the first time I visited Toronto. I found it online as a bunch place. The minute I walked in a knew I had made a great decision. The atmosphere was inviting and welcoming. The service exceeded my expectations. The food was prompt and amazingly delious. The manager was very professional and was around multiple times to make sure the service was meeting our expectations and even more. I would highly recommend anyone living or visiting Toronto to make sure they check this restaurant out.

Came here with a group of 6. We ordered 2 croque madames, 2 smoked salmon, brisket hash and pancakes. Over an hour and we still did not receive our meals and I asked servers for an update. There was a mixup with our order when 4 of our 6 meals arrived. The AGM came to us to tell us what happened and chatted with their kitchen. This was unacceptable on a Sunday where they only had 3-5 parties. Not busy at all. I also ended up finding a plastic piece in my smoked salmon pretzel sandwich. Thankfully the AGM provided us two free desserts, took two of the 6 meals off the bill and 25% off because of the troubles. This was a great gesture on his part. I will certainly come back again but kitchen needs to be much more on their game.

Food was decent and prices were good. Service was terrible. Server spent the whole night standing at the bar staring at tables without actually checking them. Never got offered refills on drinks or checked to make sure the orders were right.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Batch. I had visited the creemore springs brewery the week prior and had heard about batch as being their downtown gastropub. The food was great, with a decent selection as reasonable prices, as such with the drinks. I absolutely loved the venue! It's has a charming appeal and not something you would expect to find downtown Toronto. Service was impeccable as well. I regret not getting our servers name to recognize her!

Even though I made a reservation, the staff kept trying to make us wait in line to get into the restaurant. The ambience was great but service, food, and beer were mediocre and overall overpriced.

Service was lacking a little.
Took 12 minutes for someone to come only after I had to get up ask the greeter if a waiter/waitress could take our orders.
Was suprised by that.

The food and ambience was wonderful at Batch, but we were extremely slow to get seated. We made a reservation for 7:45 and arrived a bit early. We ended up waiting until almost 8:15 for a table. We were the only group waiting, despite being the only ones with reservations. Tables were cleared and others were seated. It was a bit frustrating knowing that we were waiting for a table and watching the busboy clear the tables at a snails pace.

The service was great when we were seated and so was the food. However, I'd be hardpressed to go back knowing that it took so long to get a table with an actual reservation.

Ambience was good and our waitress pleasant enough, but the service was painfully slow and what made it worse was the fact that the restaurant was half empty. It was just little things like never filling up our water and only delivering 2/3 mains. Had a the Winbier, which was excellent, along with their lamb burger. Again, it was good, although could have done with less goats cheese. Definitely a step up from Firkins or 3 Brewers, but I’m not rushing back.

Visited on Valentine's Day and left feeling underwhelmed.

Pros:
Great service from the front of house; hostess and waiter were wonderful.

Great beer.

Chowder was good.

Restaurant was clean.

Cons:
The main (fish and chips) took an extended period of time to arrive.

The main was part bland and part overwhelmingly salty.

The desert, apple crumble, was disappointing. It tasted undercooked and had very a notable lack of 'crumble'.

The vibe of the restaurant was mixed. Many TVs were playing an NHL game, which didn't seem to match the music (which was very loud), and the rest of the styles present in the restaurant.

Overall I was disappointed in most of the food and felt that I did not receive great value for my money. The evening was salvaged from being an awful experience by the friendly staff and solid beer.
