Jack Astor's - Toronto (Front St.)
In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.
But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.
Very busy Venue, as there was yet another convention at the MTCC..
Our Table wasn't quite ready (Upon arrival) and we opted for The Bar instead....Good choice; as we got excellent Service and the Food order was perfect.
Will definitely be back.
Tuna Mango salad was delicious and service was fast and friendly which was perfect for lunch and having to get back to work on time!
Especially enjoyed the little 'riddles' that our wait staff wrote on each of our bills....quiet unique and fun!
First time at JA's and while the food was okay, the noise level was off the charts. I could barely hear the person next to me. Will be looking for other places for a team lunch.
The music wasn't too loud. We had a barside table and the service was impeccable! So attentive and friendly.
would have been great except for a man who decided he was going to stand up and eat right by our table and kept bumping into my friend.
We left after 10 minutes. It was soooo unbelievably loud that we couldn't even carry a conversation.
Always consistent and dependable. Great and imaginative food, service is attentive but not bothersome and lots of energy in the place. One of my favorites in the downtown core and there are plenty of other choices available.
Great food and drinks. The washroom wasn’t accessible due to it being downstairs. Nice and close to the train station and the arena.
What I like most is that we were not rushed out... great place to meet up with friends and spend the afternoon!
Great pre concert/pre sports dining - close to venues.
Had a great relaxing lunch with a friend. Waitress was able to find a drink we wanted that wasn't on the menu. Bartender was quick to find ingredients and make it perfectly.
Waitress and all the staff made us feel at home. Did not rush us at all. We took our time eating and enjoying the afternoon.
Great job everyone.
Good food! Good service! Very convenient location - close to all theatres
Me and my friends we will come again for sure!!!
I eat at Jack's a lot for lunch and have not grown tired of their chicken fingers! Side salad is always meh and Jack Astor fries are not worth the calories. Service on this visit was particularly excellent. My co-worker ordered the club sandwich and it is served on a ciabatta bun or similar and he was missing the excellence and simplicity of white toast.
A good place to dine and have a drink, pretty good selection of beers ans wine.
Great service and humor with our server! The service was so quick that our food came before our beer!
Good food love the chicken fingers and the sesame chicken bowl at Jack's. We were early so not too noisy yet....sometimes hard to converse when the music is loud. All in all...love Jack's.
I took my girlfriend here for a night out, the server was very friendly the food was good my only real issue here were the drinks. We both ordered fish bowls and They were extremely weak, I’m almost certain the drinks were watered down excluding that i enjoyed my experience and would go back strictly for the food.
We ate here on the Thursday evening and the food was that good we went back on the Friday for lunch before we flew back to the UK. Great location, friendly helpful staff and lively atmosphere.
Bad service. Waited 15 mins for sauce for my wings. So I gave up and ate them dry.
Server was careless!
Food was good and the service was good. Good place to meet up with old friends downtown.
Food and drinks were good and host was very accommodating but the server was defiantly rushing us to finish our drinks and leave. Recommended we get the fish bowl drinks then when we had finished eating and had half left to drink she came over every 5 minutes to see if she could take anything else from the table then didn’t offer any dessert just brought the bill and said no rush then 5 minutes later came back and asked if we were sure she couldn’t bring us a machine to pay.
The waitress is fabulous and she’s great. I forgot her name. Sorry.
They turned up the music too loud in bar area we couldnt hear each other. Had to move to dining area. A little quieter.
This location used to be very fast, and the food was very good. On the last visit, we found our service slow and the food to be mediocre at best. Will consider other options next time.
Our experience was negatively impacted by a table of 15+ 20-somethings who were VERY loud.
Many looked barely legal drinking age and a few had too much and were yelling instead of talking.
The restaurant is too noisy for me. I wonder if there could be a quiet section.
Blue jays game with mother in law.....service was slow at the beginning...wasn’t too busy but then got a bit better
Enjoyed our leisurely business lunch. Waitress was great. We did not get rushed out. Open table didn't really work but I was there in plently of time and staff was very accomodating.
Really liked how close it was to the train station since I came from Windsor just for this meeting returning the same day.
The restaurant was clean, the food was good, and the service was excellent.
Jack Astor’s is always a good place to every moment of your life, the only complaint that i have is: when i got in the front desk they haven’t found my reservation in the system, but anyways they gave us an outside table.
Overall the service was good, food was good and loved the patio
Great Food & Service.
Awesome Patio that is vibrant and always busy.
A reservation is necessary (Especially if there are ACC or Rogers events).
However, there's always room at the Patio Bar.
Our waitress was outstanding. We sat on the patio. Food , drinks & atmosphere was perfect for the pre concert.
Excellent service. Seated quickly and servers were proficient.
This restaurant is reasonably priced and while it’s not haute cuisine they have an inventive varied menu and food is consistently delicious. The service is always great and the buzz is usually the right level for the time of day.
Disappointing start with no cheese available for the pan bread. A favourite starter at any Jack's. Initial server was friendly but, we were served by multiple staff members throughout the meal which unfortunately did not lend to a more welcoming atmosphere. It was not busy but having a time written on the table when we sat down was also an odd, rushed feeling. Overall, food was good and average but understandably so, as was the experience when factoring in service and atmosphere. No severe complaints, but won't be returning or recommending. Thank you
When dining at Jacks - stick to the chicken fingers! I am eating Keto which is really hard to do at Jack's. The Carb temptation is off the charts and the salads are expensive for the quality - $20 for a salad? I ordered the roasted double chicken breast with skin with I think something called dirty rice. They kindly substituted the rice for a side salad....so not sure how this can be cheaper than a Caesar salad with chicken.....anyway it was really greasy and pan fried - not roasted. I eat a Jack's at least once a week for lunch....I will stick to chicken fingers and figure out how to burn off those carbs quick!
Good dependable place for lunch. Fast friendly service, decent food and the volume is not too loud for a business discussion. I had the curry chicken bowl and it was decent but nothing special.
I did check in at the reserved time so I don’t know why you said I didn’t.
