    Our waitress was lovely!! Had such a fun evening here at Firkin on Yonge - the cocktails she made for me and my boyfriend were super sweet and tasty! The schnitzel was good but the green beans were a tad undercooked, overall would recommend for a fun bar experience!!

    Since I was alone for the first 30 min I was fully ignored. I managed to finally order a coke and a soft pretzels appy. The coke even took like 10 minutes to get to me, and had a very soapy taste. Not good. The value of the pretzels is 0, they cost 15 and you get two basic pretzels. Should be like $7 at most. That also took a long time to bring them out. I then immediately ordered my entree and it wasn't fancy, I asked for chicken fingers I figured that wouldn't take too too long and I'd have time to eat before the show we were seeing. I told this to the waitress as it was getting later and later and no food. Finally a hour after ordering it I was told it'll be a few more minutes but at that time I was going to be late for the show. The waitress offered to cancel the order which means it never actually got ordered the whole time. We paid for the few subpar drinks and pretzels and left hungry. Do not visit this establishment if you value your time or money.

    It was pretty empty for a Friday evening. Plates are priced high considering quality and for how empty it was service was unattentive. I had to ask to have my server sent over after sitting with our empty plates for 15 min.

    We stopped in for a couple of appies and drinks before a show. The hostess was super friendly and welcoming. Our server, Mathew, was a star!! Such a nice young man. He moved to Toronto recently from The Isle of Man. Welcome to Toronto Mathew :) Food was great, good value for our money and they had us well fed and watered and out the door in plenty of time for the show.

    When the space is full and lots of good conversations are happening, why is it necessary to have the music cranked up? We go out to enjoy talking to our friends. Not at this venue. Won't be back. Too bad because everything else was good.

    - Food was good but some feedback that may be helpful for future. - No cutlery when the food arrived. Server then brought 3 - there were 4 of us - Ketchup bottle that was placed on the table was empty. Had to get up and ask another server for a bottle..she identified she had to go upstairs to get one - other than taking our order and giving us the bill, server made no attempt to come back to our table. Realize it was a busy night, but its part of a server's responsibility Feedback - why not have cutlery already at the table. 4 seats...4 sets of cutlery...if only 3 people set, take one away when seating patrons - fill up ketchup bottles on the down time...don't give a patron an empty bottle of ketchup!

    To: Manager at Firkin on Yonge I just wanted to let you know that I had reservations last evening for 5:45pm. We arrived on time and were greeted by a friendly employee and were promptly seated. That is where the positive experience ended. We were seated in a booth at the back of the restaurant just under a speaker which played loud music and it was hard to have a conversation. Our dinner experience went downhill from there. We ordered drinks and dinner at the same time as the service was slow. We waited 30-40 minutes at least for our dinner . We asked for cutlery as we didn't receive any with our meal. 2 sets of cutlery were brought for 3 people. We asked for another set to which the server replied "we are short on cutlery". We did however receive a 3rd set. The dinner arrived cold. The server then offered to "heat it up for us" which we declined or make us something else which we did also declined as we had tickets for a show and did not have time to wait for another dinner to be prepared. She brought a salad for my friend. We left your restaurant hungry and disappointed. I just thought you should know about our experience.

    We each ordered an app and the received them 15 minutes apart. Server changed in the middle of our visit without advising us (original sever continued at table beside us further confusing this). When the meal was served, side salad and gravy were missing. Didn't see server for 10 minutes to ask for them. Then they were provided right away and busy kitchen was blamed. It was 6:00PM and the place was 3/4 full...

    Came to the Firkin pub before a show at the Ed Mirvish theatre. Great location for before a show— very close to the theatre. I had the chicken curry, my friend had the Cobb salad. Both were very good. Attentive service, lively atmosphere. Will be back!

    Stopped off for a pre-concert meal and beers. Food and beer were great but waaaaay understaffed. Waited 15 min for second round of beers and had to wait for utensils to be washed(?!?). No fault of the server…she was great and literally ran between tables and upstairs/downstairs. She took particular care to ensure we got our bills in time for the show. Will return. Chalk the experience up to a busy night with minimal staffing.

    Firkin is a sports bar- so loud was expected! The server was great, but the entrees were a variety of nationalities, not just British. We had the Shepherds pie, but also had pork schnitzel. For an appetizer, we had pierogies. If your interested in sports games, and a lively atmosphere, this is a fun place to go.

    I would not go back to the Firkin on Yonge street. It was disgustingly dirty and the service was atrocious. We had ordered an appy and half an hour later our main dishes showed up. We asked where is our appetizer? Ummm it didn't get put in was the answer. No apologies or offers to put it in right away and just basically walked away. Did not care at all. No cutlery was given - had to ask. Made reservation's for 5:30ish and were put in doorway leading to kitchen. Ice water served in plastic glasses. No offer for more of water or drinks. Avoid this place at all costs.

    It was my first time here and the staff - from the gent behind the bar to my 2 different servers - were fast, friendly and intelligent. The beet salad and chicken wings were tasty and the small-size on both were filling for one. Nice can of Octopusy IPA as well.
