The service was fantastic, very attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and engaging staff. They were out of one of the food items we were hoping for so we tried fish tacos as an alternative; we were underwhelmed by those…not enough flavour. Everything else about our experience was great. We’ll definitely be returning.

I've been here before and always enjoy the environment and the ever-changing seasonally inspired menu! For this specific visit, I brought my work team - a couple of them had been here before in the summer to enjoy the patio, which is awesome.

We had a great time meeting for the first time and chatting over our delicious drinks and meals :)

Such a cozy, upbeat vibe inside!

In terms of food and drink, everything was good.

In terms of service being on top of the wait, not great. 90+ minutes to get our food. We were kind and not fussy, but management should have done more than give 3 small donuts to make up for the incredibly long wait.

I'll definitely come back. Just not the best experience.

The Commoner (Roncy) was a genuine surprise! Everyone at my table got something different to eat, and everyone was extremely happy with their food. Our server was super friendly, and the prices were perfectly fair (for Toronto).

Would highly recommend!

Nice room/pub. Noise levels were over the top. Acoustics impossible. Definitely not for a date as it was recommended. Unless you plan to sit and stare at each other. Younger crowd. With everybody raising their voices to be heard the sound reverberated off the hard surfaces. Result, plenty of shouting not much heard. My ears are still ringing.

Fish tacos were amazing! They were stuffed with lots of fresh battered fish + fresh toppings. I upgraded the fries to the truffle fries - a must do imo! Portions are almost too much for one person. Service was fantastic, and atmosphere perfect for watching the Leafs play.

We had a great experience at The Commoner. Service, food and ambience were all great for our party of 6 that were celebrating a birthday. The outdoor patio is a beautiful place to have food and drinks with friends. Highly recommended.

Saw photos of brunch/breakfast items on their google photos but their brunch menu is not officially available yet. A bit of a bummer.

Reserved a high top table through the appas that was the only option available but we were early and asked if the patio was available. We were accommodated and had a chance to sit outside for lunch, definitely appreciated!

Dinner/lunch menu was fine, standard fare. Good burgers and salad. A nice pit stop for lunch or dinner for any occasion. A slightly noisy by the traffic lights but an otherwise nice experience.

Delicious food here and a great patio. I had the burger and my friend had the vegan tacos, both of which were excellent. Appreciated the different vegan/vegetarian options and a decent beer/wine list as well.

We had a great dinner last night on the patio. Good choice of drinks. My Commoner burger was great and the donuts were amazing. Still thinking about those donuts even now:) Sweet staff and laid back patio, will come back.

The food was great! We ordered chicken on the salad, and the chicken was comicably small! $6 for I would say around a tablespoon of chicken, about the size of a 1 chicken nugget. The waitress said that this portion was normal but offered to bring another tablespoon of chicken. The staff were very attentive.

The service was really slow. They forgot our drinks and when we remind them after 30 min, they just said they mixed it up. Food was greasy and not well cooked. I was looking to ask for some salt and pepper, but our host never came to see if we are ok! Overall, not happy with the service and the quality of the food.
