The place wasn’t busy but the service seemed overwhelmed. They were nice but not terribly efficient. The food was reasonable and at a good price point.

Good selection of food. Today’s lunch was a bit rushed but that was because of large groups Christmas lunches. Didn’t want to get left behind in the kitchen. Once food was served. Drinks and time moved slower. Which we preferred. Would try it again or suggest it to some other people. Initial smell is very hoppy. But it soon goes away once you get used to it.

Great food with friendly and helpful service. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately and offered a sample of the evening's wine special - which we loved and ordered. The sea bream was delicious and served with perfectly balanced sides - no fries nor rice in sight!

The Batch was a lovely way to start a an evening out with friends before going on to the theatre. Will definitely return again. Oh! And it was very reasonably priced!

We went to Batch for brunch but also enjoyed the beer and mimosas. Service was great. I ordered the pancakes, my son had the French toast and my husband the batch breakfast. Everything was delicious. I even had a side order of the salmon pastrami which was unbelievable I’ll definitely return on my next trip for the pastrami sandwich I just could eat both at one visit!!

Food was good. The fries were amazing. Lamb burger was too sweet because of the caramelized onions.

Great brunch (had the hash with brisket and poached eggs) which was so delicious. Wonderful caesars and attentive service. Beautiful decor. No idea why this place wasn’t busier for Sunday brunch because they really do a great brunch and it’s a nice vibe.

Service and food was very good. It was pretty empty, there were plenty of better places to seat us, but they put us in a dark corner behind a pillar. We didn’t complain, service and food were still very good.

Only criticisms are the relatively limited menu, and a pretty strange cocktail selection.

Location is near the theatre district, large beer and drinks selection, interesting food offerings. The server said they were popular for their sandwiches, got the Fried chicken sandwich… The flavours were really good and unique, but execution was off. It was way too well done and dry. Overall a small cute spot if you’re looking for pre-or post theatre drinks.

Amazing once again. The food never disappoints and the server, Aaron, went above and beyond. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable and made sure we were all enjoying ourselves. Can’t wait to return.

Glad we made reservations. It was quite loud and difficult to hear my friends beside and across the table from me. Angelina attended to us with really good service. A little on the pricey side.

Enjoyed the beer, so definitely go for some of their in-house offerings. The food, however, was very disappointing. The fried brussel sprouts came in a bowl half-filled with Hollandaise sauce, which we had to spoon onto a plate. My wife had a salad in which the avocado was essentially a guacamole paste. The "chips" of the fish and chips were more like potatoes, as they were very thick and not crispy. Don't normally write negative reviews but the menu sounded great and it was unfortunate to have what sounded like promising dishes so clumsily rendered. However, the place had a cool vibe and I've heard the burgers are very good, so maybe try one of those with your beer.

We have been to Batch 3 times in the past. We really enjoyed our previous times. This time, the service and food quality was disappointing. The server was nice but it seemed much more like bar service as opposed to restaurant service. There wasn't much checking back on how things were going. We finished our meal and she took the plates away but never came back to check if we wanted dessert(which we did initially but gave up). I had to flag her down for the cheque. My wife and I had the steak and my daughter had the risotto. The risotto was extremely small portion. Both of our steaks had quite a bit of gristle so I would say they were sub-par quality. I did, however, enjoy the Batch beer. Overall, not a very enjoyable birthday dinner for my wife.

Came here for buck a shuck in Wednesday’s. The oysters were great and their toppings of horse radish and tabasco hot sauce mix was great too. I also tried the buffalo cauliflower, which tasted like all dressed chips. I loved my meal and will come back here again.

Enjoyed your restaurant, food, ambiance and service very good. With the exception of the key lime dessert, which was a deconstructed key lime pie? Did not enjoy the dessert, nor did the other guests.
If you keep this on the menu, recommend that the wait staff advise on what being ordered. When we looked at the name key lime, we thought we were getting pie. Would not order this item again. Thanks,

Had many Batch burgers in the past and always enjoyed but today it was over cooked and we waited too long for our server to check in on us and bring our bill. Usually really enjoy Batch so this was unusual. Still plan on coming back.

Very good food but brought the wrong order twice. Once is understandable, but twice is a little excessive.

But definitely would still go back.

The place is nice. Drinks are good, environment is cool. I'd go back, but would not order the curried cauliflower salad again. The presentation is bad, very little food and taste wise it's not that great. So that disappointed me but the Paloma cocktail was nice and strong. Service is okay -- I'd give it a 7/10. But I did have a good time there.

Amazing customer service & great good! It took a little while to get the spoon for my soup, so they apologized & I was given a free desert. The summerlicious menu was phenomenal ! Great southern cooking with a Toronto Twist :) the 5$ beer was also a great bonus.
