Had the Bangers and Mash, very good. Nice glass of rose wine and a great catch up with a friend. Good service and reasonable prices.

This was a post-matinee performance at The Royal Alexandra Theatre. It was quiet on arrival and filled up over the 90 minutes we were there. Service was quite good even though our server appeared to be inexperienced. She was friendly and helpful and service was quick. The food could have been a little hotter, but the flavour was there.

You will be surrounded by televisions showing sports of interest hoping you like the one selection provided. Price was reasonable, if slightly high, but this is a high rent district in the heart of the entertainment district, so to be expected.

All in all, recommended.

We find the food is often warm but not hot. I have ordered Chicken Pot Pie and each time I say to the server “please make sure it is hot in the middle” and it comes out luke warm. This time we ordered eggs benedict and it was barely warm. If the kitchen could make the food hot, it would be a favourite place to eat.

It makes sense to make reservations before the rush hour. Staff pleasant and courteous. Toronto class food. Location ideal.

Unreal vibes and the service was phenomenal, we were having so much fun we didn't even realize our food had taken so long to come out that the manager came over and apologized and gave us a 25% discount and free dessert! Oh and the food was phenomenal

Try the Shepherd's Pie. Trust me on this. It paired perfectly the the Barking Squirrel beer. The service was exceptional.

I was impressed to have made reservations on Open Table, and a receive a confirmation call directly from the restaurant. The hostess who called me also anticipated the need for our business group by asking me if we needed to split the bill. Finally: although our group size was seven (7) and six (6) was the larges table size Open Table would accept, the hostess accommodated us on a high-top table that could comfortably seat our group. Everyone in our group was pleased with the service, quality of food, and value. We will definitely dine at the King Street location in Toronto, if weʻre ever visiting again. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
