This is not an Irish pub. It’s some Northern Irish love. We pay tribute to the sensibilities of proper pubs by way of the simple values to true publicans:
Honest beer — like the kind made by the hand of true craftsmen,
Unique cocktails — ones that leave you in no disillusionment that you’re drinking alcohol. And real tasty food — the sort that fills the belly and the soul.

No one at reception to greet us. We had to chase down someone and tell them we had reservations through open table which they were super confused and just said “sit anywhere you want”
Our waitress couldn’t have been anymore unimpressed and 1 meal; a poutine took 30 minutes. I left notes that this was for a 40th birthday... not even acknowledged.

I really like this restaurant but the service is dismal. On my recent visit, I had to get the waiter’s attention multiple times even though the place was not very busy. As I said, I like the restaurant because the food is good but the service needs to seriously improve. I have visited several times and each time I have come the service has been poor.

Tv cut out during a raptors playoff game. With a few seconds left. Manager blamed the issue on a streetwide power outage, which wasnt accurate. It was irritating to say the least, restaurant also packed too many people inside and bouncer wasn’t going to let us in.

Was not thrilled with the service overall. We came here for a business lunch, and my prospect ordered bacon on his burger and did not receive it.

The waitress also took close to 10 minutes to bring our check at the end of lunch and I did not feel like the service was close to par.

I’ve been to Belfast Love a few times and always leave unimpressed. This time was different. The margarita pizza with prosciutto was fantastic. Sesame seeds were a surprisingly nice touch and the meat was cut to the perfect size. The ambiance was great and my friends enjoyed the visit.

Good beer list, good vegetarian sandwich - wish it had a bit of protein in there though. And there was a tv above our table that was a bit distracting. They have a good beer list :)

The sandwich I chose was alright, I would even go so far to say the bread was too hard and too much like plain grocery store bread espeically for the price. But crisp cauliflower was delicious and the atmosphere was great espeically coming during a quieter weekday night

We visited Belfast Love for Sunday brunch. Upon arrival we were the only table there. Despite this we had to hunt down the waitress once we were ready to order as the restaurant had decided to have a team meeting during service time and there were no staff to be seen! There was no espresso machine so I couldn’t order a latte which is a brunch deal breaker for me unless the food is outstanding (spoiler alert it wasn’t). The process of getting our drinks took another two tries of waving down the waitress - only one of us got milk with our coffee even though we all wanted it and then she left again and we realized none of us had teaspoons. The food arrived pretty promptly and it was ok...the French toast didn’t have a lot of flavour as the berry sauce was a bit watery. The avocado toast my friend had looked good. The bacon that came with our simple fry was crumbly (we wondered if it had been pre-fried and then simply heated in the microwave once ordered as it had that suspicious texture). Overall too many cons and not enough pros meant we won’t be back.

We had our booking for 2 weeks, it was Mother's Day and they were surprised by how busy they were. Food all came out at different times which made it awkward and some things we had to ask for a couple of times before we got it. Our waitress was rude and unapologetic.

We went at lunch with a group of 8 people and the place was nearly empty. The service was incredibly slow and the food was terrible given the price we paid. It may be a better place to go for drinks in the evening, but I certainly won’t be back for anything business-related.

I was a bit disappointed that the self proclaimed "proper pub" did not have an energetic atmosphere for the UEFA Champions League Final 2017 however, management went above and beyond to accommodate all who came to view the match. Thanks!

Overall food was good. More options would have been better. One thing I was not impressed with was the waitress's attire. Very messy, unkept, unprofessional. Look liked a couple of them grabbed a long T-shirt off the floor....
