The restaurant was very loud but to be expected as it is a pub and very busy. Food was quickly delivered to the table and was very tasty. The service was quick to start but then we seemed to be forgotten. There was no offering to refill our drinks. We were given the dessert menu and then again waited for service. We ended up leaving without dessert. The waitress was very friendly as well as very busy.
Would not go back
Went on a Friday evening before a show at the Elgin Theatre. Food and service was fantastic!
Washrooms needed papertowels at 5pm :(
Service was excellent. Staff were friendly and informative. Only complaint was we were served a bit too fast - barely finished our appetizer when the main course was served.
Unfortunately I booked a table for my wife & I before going to see a play & was very disappointed . My wife ordered the Mac & Cheese & I had in Spinach Mushroom Penne meal . The appetizer was lukewarm & my meal was cold with a thick paste/ glue like texture. I had to dip in the Mac & Cheese sauce to help add some moisture & that didn't help. Ate less than half & I was done. This is not made fresh, it's pre-made & microwaved to heat it up. Waiters was very apologetic & took 1/2 the cost of my meal even after I told her not to as it was not her fault. It was a big mistake going there as it ruined what should have been a nice evening out. I booked there because I have never had a bad experience at other Firkins . The cook ( sorry to say ) j does not give a crap what comes out of the kitchen & that is a real shame.
Loved the red pepper appetizer and a Thursday special fish and chips.
Good beer and wine. Will return when we’re attending a Mirvish theatre play.
We went for brunch after seeing a show at the Elgin Theatre. There were 10 of us. The service was outstanding and the food was great.
Great for a bar but sucks as a restaurant. Noisy and poor service. We won’t be back again. Poor value for money if you want any type of ambiance or great food.
Unbelievably average with tiny tables and an ok atmosphere. Was expecting much more to be honest.
I'd give 3.5 stars if I could; the soup I had was lovely and filling at a very good price. Service was good and the place was clean, never got a chance to check the washrooms though. The biggest drawback was how loud the music was. We were sat near a speaker and you'd think they'd turn it down a bit, yet we got through the meal in one piece so it wasn't the end of the world. The main course I ordered was nothing special either; the soup was the highlight of my meal.
Service and food where great thanks so much for holding my seats for me for over an hour.
Our waitress was fabulous. We had a big party and she was so calm and so helpful. Everyone was happy. Great experience.
Our food was good and the service was stellar. I would go back.
It’s a British themed pub, although as a Brit myself it’s a far cry from a real British pub, it’s a Disney/Austin Powers version. Nonetheless it was a good night out, the food and beer was good, waiter service attentive and the atmosphere fun. I visit again next time I am in Toronto
I absolutely love this place !! It was my second time going and once again I was more than pleased. I went with my Mom before seeing Wicked the Musical. The atmosphere is fun - music playing, sports on TV, but the food and service is what I must rave about. The servers and hosts are always so friendly and genuine. This time I had the fish tacos & nachos they were both amazing. The last time I was there I had the burger and it was mouth watering worthy... and huge. I would 100% recommend Firkin on Yonge.
Excellent staff and great food and value for your money. Super loud. I mean really, really loud music. We ate a table near the rear of the restaurant away from the bar area and we had to lean in and almost shout our conversation. Very much a loud, after work for drinks, party atmosphere.
Nice interior in a prime location, but the food was very underwhelming - from the menu online, looks like decent pub food, but upon entry you realize that the food is sub-par at best. Service was not consistent as well.
Great server, everyone’s meal was great except the fish and chips. Over cooked so very disappointing.
Thouroghly enjoyed our dining experience. Had a very competent and friendly waitress. The food was hot and very tasty. The service was quick and we had lots of time to get to our concert at Massey Hall. Would definitely recommend friends to dine here
Only complaint is wish we could have sat at a booth instead of near the bar, it was a bit too loud and when we asked we were simply told none were available even though we did make a reservation.
Good food variety. Unhealthy choices mostly, but that's what you would expect from a pub. Overall, the food was tasty and the atmosphere fun. Service was good, polite staff and didn't have to wait long until the food came. I would recommend.
Our server was very good, very accommodating. I wish I could remember her name. Food was delicious. Good pub fare.
The food was fine, I had the firkin burger with fries and chipotle dipping sauce. Had a 20 oz molson Canadian for $6. Service was good with no complaints. I went with my brother in law who is very fussy and even he couldn't find anything to complain about. After dinner we went out the back door to okeefe lane and we were at Massey Hall in 30 seconds. If you want a decent restaurant with friendly service look no further.
Fish and chips were great.
Service was fast
Went down to a concert at massy hall this place is just around the corner and good eats and drinks
cramped in an awkward table upstairs up against a workstation. Food very averag at best. Server was pleasant and friendly, but seemed to be busy and we rarely saw her.
Great food and great service. Good please to have a quick meal before show
Amazing food, service, space. Was a little on the noisy side but not too too bad. Second floor was quieter :)
Great spot for a bite before a show at Massey Hall
Service was just OK. It was busy, but waitress should of checked to see how food was after serving. Food wasn’t very good at all. Poutine fries, below average, Butcher on the rye sandwich was awful. Meat was tough and very fatty. Couldn’t even bite through it.
Great place to eat before the show.
Firkin on Yonge is a great place for a pre-theatre bite and drinks. The Steam Whistle was good, thanks to the waitress that pushed it on us. We had the nachos with chorizo sausage, great! The hot sauce they serve is tasty and locally made.
We all had a great night. Great for accessibility, with easy entrance into the building and an elevator for the upper floor and the washrooms, which are also accessible (for those who aren't able to take the stairs).
Good pub style food and the service was good. Staff were welcoming and helpful with ideas/food selections.
Thank you for the great atmosphere before heading to the Elgin Theatre!
A fun time and tasty meal. Although we reserved for 2, friends called to reserve and asked to be seated with us. We were accommodated without being made to feel as if we were putting anyone out. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I though she went above and beyond the call of duty with us and always had a smile. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we came back after the theatre for a drink and conversation. We had the same server and she was equally as accommodating and pleasant.
Seemed understaffed. Everyone was polite, so I don't think it was any particular worker's attitude.
The service at this location is very slow. Seemed that there was 1 waitress for the entire upstairs. My meal came wrong. I asked for no spice yet the kitchen sent it out with the spicy spread on it. The waitress was nice but very slow to bring our drinks.
Ordered the curry chicken and rice. It was totally inedible. The rice was clumped together and my fork could not penetrate to pick it up. I couldn’t really find the chicken in the curry it was all large pieces of onions.
Will never come here again.
Great location. Food was very good. The service was perfect. Ty Mark.
We had a relatively late Saturday night dinner here and ran into one snag - kids cannot be present after 9. We did manage to eat and leave in time. Food was bar fare with a more varied menu than expected, including curry. Everyone else had burgers and poutine. Onion rings were particularly good. Service was quite efficient.
