Kellys Landing is a casual North American bar, grill, hub, serving market-fresh cuisine, borrowing from the myriad of cultures that make up modern day Toronto. We offer a lively full-service bar serving a vast variety of draught beers on tap, a deep selection of wines by the glass and numerous one-of-a kind signature cocktails. Kellys Landing is home to a beautifully crafted interior, nano-walls disappearing in warm weather bringing the outside in, a retractable glass roof increasing patio space and fresh, healthful, high quality cuisine, all made in-house from scratch, in a very lively happy, no-rules environment. We are ideally located in the financial district, kitty corner to Union Station, GO & the subway, next to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and a stone’s throw from both the Air Canada & Rogers Centers.

This is the fourth time I've been to Kelly's Landing (third time at this location, once at the location in North York). Each time I've found the food to be disappointing and outright lacking. The menu is also a bit pricey and could use a bit more selection. Nothing this restaurant does makes it stand out or differentiates it from your standard fare of Moxie's, Milestones, Kelsey's, or Casey's.

I went to Kelly's Landing for drinks and dinner with my friends before the Justin Timberlake concert at the ACC. The food was delicious and the setting and ambiance of the restaurant was really neat. The drinks were average.

My husband and I had been to Kellys Landing a couple of times as we go to the leaf/raptor games all the time.
We were going with some friends to Nitrus Circus on Sunday Sept 30th. Table for 8. We live out side of Toronto so 6 of us took the train in, arrived at the restaurant about 1/2 hour before my 4 olcock reservation. The women at the front told me that they were experiecing an IT problem. So we went to the bar to get a drink, about 15 minutes later i required about our table and again i was told they were having an IT problem. Not too sure what an IT problem has to do with my party sitting at a table( btw the restaurant was empty). In the meantime my husband asked the bartender if he could switch one of the many TVs to the Nascar race. So he worked on it then told us that he would have to get the manager to do it. Having asked the manager, the manager say NO nascar!!!!!!!!! Around 4 oclcock another manager came into the scene and asked us what seems to be the problem. My husband said we are waiting for a table and he agian said sorry but we are experiencing IT problems.

We finally got our table and the second manager turned on the Nascar race for us. Our waiter was excellent and I think for the most part everyone was happy with the food.

I dont complain often about much but I was very dissapointed with the way their IT problem was handled. Sitting a group of 8 at a table in a empty restaurant should not conflict with an IT problem.

I really liked this restaurant but I will likely take my business else where as there are MANY of places to choose from.

OpenTable indicated the only available seating was 11:45. When we arrived the entire restaurant was open and we were seated directly next to another couple. when I asked the wait staff about it, they indicated it would be better to call for a table to get the time we wanted (12 noon) and the seat location we wanted.

Great service with good burgers and fries. We requested the gluten free hamburger bun. It was not good. It crumbled into pieces so we both ended up discarding the top half and ate as an open faced sandwich. I’ve had excellent gluten free hamburger buns and they do not crumble, especially if fresh.

The waitress Emm was very nice and tried hard to please. Our drink orders were sort of hit and miss and one of the orders with a medium rare steak was so rare that it was blue! They also sent it cut on the salad , so even as a non-chef I can’t imagine how they did not see that...it was taken off our bill as well as the drinks she ordered, so I felt that was an appropriate response by the manager. All our other food was very good and all of us in our group have returned there due to the good food and ambiance.

This is becoming our Go TO spot before the Concert (Scotiabank Arena). Always hopping, but servers are up to the challenge. Food and wine selection are good. Not my pick for a romantic dinner, but great way to kick off a fun night out with friends. Love the Moroccan Curried Chicken!

We went out to Kelly’s Lansing for our anniversary on Saturday night! Our waiter Daniel was fantastic from the moment we sat down at making our night special! He was excited about all the menu options we had questions about and provided an excellent service! We were so great full that we shared this experience with his manager Allen whom we found equally as excellent and very friendly! These people and are experience at this dinner really made our night! As a celiac this place was also fantastic at providing gluten free options as I was able to have a 3 course meal without being left wanting for anything! We will surely be back, thank you again!!!

Wow really great place - we were in Toronto for a conference and it was recommended by the Westin Hotel - great food.service and really neat atmosphere. The vibe is great with good cocktails, wine list and varied menu. The prices are fair and you do not have to spend a lot of money for a quality meal and service. Highly recommended and wish we had something like this in Charlotte, NC

Kelly's Landing has a wonderfully buzzy vibe. Love the industrial chic decor, and enjoy the excellent service. This resto-bar is conveniently located close to Union Station and to a number of the city's sports venues. Great for pre and post drinks and to meet people for a business meeting.

The menu is perfect not pages and pages like some places. Our meal arrived quickly but the waitress was not the best, I had only 1 glass of water the whole meal, never filled it and never asked if we wanted more. Pizza was ok, very greasy to the point you could see it sitting in pools on the top of it and the center of the crust was cooked but soggy. Tasted ok but not something I would order again. I would give them another try and decide from there whether it's a regular place to go to.

Made a reservation and they gave it away, even though we were there on time. Seated us in the very back corner, next to where the staff were wrapping cutlery. You can imagine the noise throughout our dinner. The dishwashers would even come and dump out more cutlery, terrible noise. On top of that, my tuna poke was brown....looked like it had been frozen and thawed too many times. The crisps provided with them were stale....not impressed with the dinner I had.

We had a good time, but to be fair - there were some details that took away from the experience - which is why I had to give only one star for the ambience. First - my drink was served in a chipped glass, another in my party had a hair in her Pepsi, and my friend asked for no bacon on his entrée .. ( Muslim .. but not strict) so when he bacon on his sandwich he just took it off. That said .. the service was really good and attentive, the hostess was helpful and able to accommodate our reservation for an extra guest, my food was excellent, and they provided a free desert for my friend's birthday. There is a lot of good there .. but work on some of those details and it would be fantastic.

Reserved online then attempted to change the number of people. Couldn’t accommodate on line so I ended up calling and they said they couldn’t accommodate that many at one table and they were booked solid and very busy. We decided to all show up anyway and see if we could get 2 tables to seat 7 of us.
When we arrived at our time of reservation we were told they could accommodate us all at one table but we had to call next time as it threw them off!!???! Once we were seated and looked around there were plenty of tables available and plenty to accommodate more then 7 people. Not sure why all the confusion beforehand.

A nice layout and good location. The food though is definitely more of a bar menu, with plenty of salt to make you thirsty.

Through the open table reservation I had asked for a quiet table. They proceeded to seat us in the middle of a long row of tables all huddled together when in fact there were plenty of quiet booths available around. I guess staff doesn’t read the notes in Open Table reservation. To their credit, we ended up getting the booth after insisting a bit.
