It was overall a pretty good experience. I found the lighting too bright (I asked to have them dimmed but I guess it wasn’t possible) and the music a bit too loud for me but other than that, it was a nice vibe. Food was hit and miss, pico de Gallo salad wasn’t great, and I was underwhelmed by the Birria tacos, would’ve liked a bit more crunch inside. The burger was amazing though and the fries were really good. And the drinks were great!
Excellent cocktails, great atmosphere and impeccable service
Great experience with a lovely staff! Cocktails are wonderful and I recommend the Pina Colada. They also had live music on a Tuesday!
Amazing atmosphere, music, drinks and staff! Although it is a small food menu, everything tastes amazing! Best burger I have ever had.
Absolute great time as always. Julia and mikes recommendations were amazing. James made a great freestyle for my mom who never drinks and she really enjoyed it. Music was top notch, thank you so much!
Service was lacking. obviously understaffed on a friday. food and drinks took a very long time to arrive (20 for first drink. almost an hour for food)
Great cocktail bar in our neighbourhood. Popped in for a drink and cocktails were really interesting and tasted great. Staff were amazing!
The hostess was accommodating when we wanted to switch tables, and our server was attentive and had great recommendations from the menu. We didn’t sample the food, but loved the drinks! Will definitely come by again.
I would definitely recommend this place! All the cocktails I have tried have very interesting flavours, the personnel is extremely polite and considerate, and the food is very delicious (which is not that common for bars).
Excellent service ambience and live music!
Lovely ambiance with the best drinks in town I ever had!
Live music Sunday’s! Such a good way to end the weekend.
A treat of an evening, as always. Looking forward to the next one already.
Been to Mother multiple times before and visited again on a busy Thursday night. The bar has a great concept around sustainability and it’s well-reflected in their hand crafted cocktails. Drinks, especially stirred, were on the sweeter end and service was really slow. We had to flag down our server twice to order. Overall I’d recommend Mother for the experience; however, I do not see it as a bar that I would frequent.
Amazing cocktails at a reasonable price and our server was awesome. Love the no waste and fermentation concept.
Lovely cocktails. The fries and sourdough bread were great.
Best cocktail in Town. Very nice ambiance and best service ever
The service was phenomenal and The Honey cocktail was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Thank you !
Great experience. Service was amazing. Unique cocktails. Great vibe.
We had a wonderful time! The cocktails and food were excellent. All the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Especially, Mike! He was amazing. He took excellent care of us. Thanks guys for making our date night so special :)
As always, exceptional cocktails with exceptional service. By far my favourite cocktail bar in the city!
An amazing, unique experience all around! Such obvious attention to detail is paid in all areas of the menu. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and show a great appreciation for all aspects of the dining experience. We’ll definitely be back soon and will be recommending this spot to friends and family!
Disappointing. The food and drinks were good. What ruined the experience was the condescending attitude of the server who reminded us that this is a 'world class cocktail bar' and that we should know better than to ask for pedestrian drinks, such as coke. This patio is also right next to a major road so the ambiance is not 'world class'.
Amazing, knowledgeable and attentive service! The cocktails are so great! Thank you!
Live music, delicious drinks and divine food. Exquisite evening!
Best cocktail bar in the city! Elevated menu without the elevated prices.
Did not try the food but the drinks and service were awesome. Unfortunately we were seated in like a corner at the entrance, awkward seating… but everything else was incredible. Really cool concept and I look forward to going back and hopefully get seated at the bar!
My favourite cocktail bar in Toronto. I love it here. The staff are incredible, I’ve never had a bad drink, and it has some of the top food in Toronto for a cocktail bar
Wife’s birthday! The experience was excellent all around, and the staff are experts in every aspect! Highly recommend going there!
Everything from the food and service was great!
A truly remarkable cocktail bar! The attention to detail and quality is unparalleled. You will experience unique libations that will not be found elsewhere - a true testimony to the pride and passion of this Queen West gem!
Finally was able to see the inside of this place and it's such a vibe! Our server was such a sweetheart and served us really quickly. Cocktails were great. I can't wait to go back.
Spirit and fermented forward
Our waiter was high so he kept forgetting our orders. The other servers that came were nice. However it was a bit frustrating having to repeat multiple times to the same server what our drink and food orders were
Great experience! Thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and the drinks were some of the best I've tasted in the city. Henry was as skilled of a bartender as he was upbeat and friendly. Appreciated the extra level of service from our server, Ben as well. Recommend that anyone check it out!
Service was absolutely amazing. The menu changes often and its always great. Top notch cocktails and the decor is beautiful. 10/10
The… best… cocktail bar…. Ever
Food and drinks where amazing and staff was very knowledgeable about every product. Unfortunately a bit slow service but just seemed to be a very busy night and staff were always apologetic and friendly. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great cocktail bar!
Complex and flavourful drinks! I especially liked the flora old fashion.
Couldn’t have been better. Staff were super warm and knowledgeable , drinks were obviously amazing, and you shouldn’t miss the food.
Given the quality of the drinks, the prices are actually kind of a steal.
