It was ok but I wouldn't return. Took 15 minutes for someone to acknowledge us at our table and ask if we wanted water. Another 15 to get our drinks. Good was average. Overall our group wasn't impressed. I really wanted to like it. I know our server tried....maybe she was new. But for a place that wasn't overly busy I don't know why things took so long.

We had a Winterlicious meal. For a pub type of environment where meat might be heavily favoured, the food was a revelation. We are non-meat eaters so had fish and vegetable options. Chef is to be commended for innovative and delicious blending of flavours. We enjoyed the roasted vegetables, the fish and the soup.
The servers, both seasoned and new, were friendly, efficient and fun.

We went with a group of 18 people for a birthday function. Since the restaurant knew we were there for a birthday, they gave us the back private room which included a football table and darts. Staff were very friendly and prompt - excellent service throughout the evening!

Visited for the first time this weekend and went back the following day because we enjoyed it so much. Great service and food. Serg, our server, have our experience even more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend. Spacious enough for our large soccer team to fit comfortably.

We went to celebrate a birthday and except for one person in our group, everyone really enjoyed their food/order. The person who did not, ordered a steak and had felt it was not cooked to their requested level. The staff were great about this feedback and tried their best to remedy the situation and concerns with the meal, and for that we are incredibly grateful and give the staff a 5/5 for going above and beyond to address the noted concerns.

Overall, the food options are great and priced reasonably.--thank you Liberty Commons!

Nice casual spot with great service and a wide selection on the menu. Good selection of beers and a small selection of cocktails. O&B level of service without the high price tag of their fine dining.

We reserved a table for our office Holiday Lunch, using the option of a set menu. We had 8 people in our party (although only 7 attended), so we booked a table for 11:45am to avoid any delays during what we anticipated being a busy lunch period. We were seated promptly and had drinks in our hands within 10 minutes. We waited another 20 to place our orders (ordering all courses at one time). Two of the attendees ordered form the regular menu, after approval from the restaurant. Our appetizers were served and cleared by 12:50pm. Here is where the wheels fell off...Our main course did not arrive at the table until 1:30pm. It seemed that only after we inquired as to where our food was (at 1:15pm), from one of their roving managers, that the food preparation actually began. Another manager came over at 1:25pm to apologize for the delay with the excuse of "we are doing the best we can", but offered no explanation as to why there was a delay at all. The restaurant was not overly busy (i.e. all tables were full, but there was still seating at the bar available, so the customer/staff ratio should have been sufficient). We did receive compensation for the delay in the form of a discounted bill, however 2 members of our team had to leave before the food was served due to previous commitments; after all, budgeting 1 hour and 45 minutes for a lunch seemed sufficient. I am willing to give Liberty Commons another shot, as I think this was a one-off snafu and the food and drink was quite good. In future, an honest "we forgot to cook your food" is better than "we are doing the best we can" as the latter implies that perhaps large groups can't be accommodated....

Great venue, but it is too bad that it is just behind the construction of a massive condo tower. Went there for lunch with friends, we had to yell at each other, and the music was also really loud. But overall the food was really yummy and the staff was extremely kind and accommodating!

Excellent service, knowledgeable staff! I would have rated this restaurant higher were it not for: 1) the tiny salad I paid $15 for. It was about a cup of salad, about one tomato, a smear of cheese, and a tiny amount of greens. I said - sorry, I ordered the large. They said, this IS the large. Finished in about 6 bites. Not a value meal. 2) the jalapeno perogies were EXCELLENT and a great price, so we ordered more - not the same. The first batch was zippy, second was bland. Keep in mind how cheap perogies are to make - these were 5 for $9. Worth it when they tasted special - not so much when they were bland. Inconsistent food quality. 3) My husbands fish and chips, also a tiny portion for just under $20. Mind you, the fish was cooked perfectly! .... Maybe eat here while dieting??

My friend loved her turkey burger and curry soup. She thought they were excellent. I tasted the soup and entirely agreed. Very rich and spicy! The taste of the food was overall quite good. The donut hole desert, also delicious. My advice, maybe plan to snack before or after eating at this restaurant, OR bite the money bullet and buy more food. We spent around $100 for two of us with a drink each, and my friend about $50 including a drink, and we were still hungry afterwards. So not super terribly expensive. Would be great pricing if they just slapped a couple more fries on the fish'n'chips to make it feel like more food. Maybe another cup or two of lettuce to the salad?

The size of the salad will remain with me though - it tasted good - but $15 for such a small portion makes me absolutely INSANE!!!

We came here after seeing a tweet for a Ti-Cats meet-up. I don’t think they anticipated more than 20 people, but 100 showed up and sadly they didn’t have enough staff to keep up with demand. We waited over 10 minutes for our waitress, but once she came over everything came out quickly. I will definitely come back on a regular night to give it another chance.
