The food was good and the beer was great. The one challenge we had as we called ahead to ensure that they could accommodate a vegan for brunch and when we got there they said sorry no. We expressed that we called specially for this and in the end they accommodated.

Food was ok. Beer was good. Descriptions on the menu didn't match what came out. Example: The breakfast platter was supposed to have kale but came with some sort of cooked cabbage. Server couldn't answer our questions about the menu he had to ask the bartender.

Food was pretty expensive for what we received. The beef fat fries were amazing, but that was the only memorable thing about our meal.

We arrived and found out that our Open Table reservation did not exist because they purported that they do not take 'OpenTable' reservation. However, we did get seated pretty quickly, which made up for it.

The service was quite horrendous. Our server took too long for a very sparse restaurant (especially the indoor side). It took more than 15 minutes after ordering to even get beers on our table, let alone our meals.

The beer selection was pretty good for their own brewery. Overall, if I do go back, it's only to order their beers. I would not go back for food or atmosphere.

Beautiful space, alarm went off while we were there and had to wait outside. That was handled fine and the weather was nice so not so bad. Overall, cute space! Good drink selection.

The beer is the best in the city and the food is so good and made from the rooftop garden. Ask the server for a tour of the garden. Highlight of the experience.

My friends who ordered steak said it was amazing. Great service: friendly and accommodating. Phone ahead if you need a high-top, or seating for more that 6 people (We will do this next time to spare staff the table-juggling). Lighting is too bright for my taste, but others may appreciate that.

Went for brunch before an afternoon show at Crows.
3 of us, each had something different, each had questions of the waiter, who was helpful and patient.
The food was delicious and the mimosas went down a treat!
Will be back, for sure

I find that some restaurants have difficulty making a large space feel cozy but Avling did just that. It’s warm and inviting. Service was friendly and even though it was quite busy we didn’t feel rushed and they took the time to answer some questions we had about the place. The food was tasty, I had the burger and it did not disappoint. Beers are quite good, I had their Vienna lager. I would definitely go back and I have already recommended it to some friends.

This is a must try experience. The brunch was absolutely delicious! I recommend the burger :) The staff was attentive, and the atmosphere was curiously cozy and trendy. Loved the vibe. 10/10 would recommend to any and everyone! A true Toronto hidden gem!

We were in the east end with another couple for a theatre evening close by. I'd heard good things about Avling.

The service was friendly and informative, both about the food and the beer. We all shared the Rib Eye steak, and added two veggie sides to fill out the meal. It was all delicious, and turned out to be just the right amount of food.

We loved the light and airy room, even on a dark December evening. I would definitely return to try more dishes (and beers) on a bright summer day.
