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. Great food, hospitality and convenience all in one location!

The chicken wings this time was overtly crispy. The jerk flavored wings and Moroccan chicken are my favorites

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.

Only downside is it's a bit too noisy if you want to have a business meeting. Not too bad before 5:00 p.m. but after 5:00, very difficult.

We had a good and attentive Server. Unfortunately, a bird pooped on our table! We were on the Patio.

I mentioned to our Server that it was going to be my 50th Wedding Anniversary soon and she brought out a dessert with a sparkler on it, it was a very nice surprise and was also delicious!

Amazing Ceasar cocktail with everything in it, including lobster tail. The food was good, very friendly service.
The only negative and it may not be the restaurant's doing, is that I googled for Best Waterfront Brunch and this property is not on the water and does not have a water view.

The service was excellent. Jessica did a great job providing us service. The food was really poor. The apps, the trio dip and wings were good. My wife and kids all had the steak frites. My daughter ordered medium it was well done and rubbery
Fries were over cooked
The two medium wells were don’t well either
Great service terrible food

Super popular option, great location. Menu is fairly diverse so everyone's bound to leave happy.

IMHO - I feel like the portions might be a bit small, and the prices a bit large... but it ain't easy running a restaurant right downtown... so maybe it's about right.

Appetizers were good, they screwed up two out of four entrees at the table. The server was nice but was very slow to quality check to see if the orders came out right. They didn’t do anything to try and make the experience better. More of a beer, apps, and burger kind of place

The service was outstanding from the initial welcome to the service and then the farewell.
Nikolas (Nik) was very patient, friendly and unassuming.
Thank you!

The restaurant was very warm and humid, I ask the waiter why it was hot and she told me that they just close the big outside doors and that will take a awhile to cool down. We were their for two hours and it was the same after we left hot and humid. The food was very good but the selection was small.

It was our first time, and we met friends for dinner Pre-Show. As expected it was crazy busy, our wait staff person had already put 17,000 steps on! My Morroccan chicken was particularly excellent, despite how busy it was wait staff was upbeat, high energy and gave us realistic expectations around food timing and was totally not plussed by our changes. Would definitely recommend and go again! A really fun way to start the night before a memorable concert.

Great convenient place to meet friends. 5 of us came and left for lunch at different times and the waitress handled us with grace, with quick service and separate bills. The place is noisy and wouldn’t suit anyone even slightly hard if hearing.

The food and beer selection was really good here, and service was a friendly. I would describe the noise level as “noisy” not, “energetic”, but what restaurant isn’t. I would go back and recommend this restaurant. The cheesecake is amazing!

When we checked in at noon, we were told that we had until 1pm to accommodate another reservation. We didn't have time to go to another restaurant, only to suffer through a meal that went half finished. Food was greasy, flavorless, and slow to come out of the kitchen. Our server empathized and passed along our comments to her manager. No manager came to address our issues. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Really enjoyable pre Blue Jays game brunch. We were able to sit outdoors watching the vibrant street scene but didn’t feel we were too close for comfort. The food was interesting and tasty and the service was very good.

I’ve now been to Kelly’s Landing 4 times and I think their menu does not suit my palette. I don’t think I would any of their food but service is great and drinks aren’t bad too.

Been here a few times. Ambiance is good. Food is sub par. Would come here for drinks but no so much for the food. Had the pizza- crust really crunchy. Lobster fettuccine- really heavy/creamy. Fish tacos-fish has more batter then fish. Sticky toffee dessert is good though.
