Food was good, not great but good. The warm donuts were amazing! Service was pleasant and friendly. The cocktails and beer selection are enough for me to go again.

Everything amazing except bennies served on cast iron platters tasted metallic. I would suggest serving bennies on regular plates?

Chicken bites were really good, and the dessert doughnuts are not to be missed! Truffle fries and sliders were good, but not as good as the other two.

It was our first visit - we will definitely be back! Great cocktail list, excellent food.

Coat hooks or racks would be welcome, especially for guests seated at the high tops.

Comfortable environment if a bit boxed. Best attribute is very nice, clean washrooms. Also good music. But food is everything and our $26 steak and $26 ribs were pre-cooked and served slightly warmed up. Fries ample, coleslaw minimal. Restaurants have had a tough time during the pandemic, I'd like to submit a better review. There just wasn't any love in the food.

First dinner out with my bestie in over 2 years and it was perfect. Shared our favourite meal(fries, salad, fish tacos) and it was perfect. Cleaned our plates. The woman serving us was great, charming and funny and didn’t hover. Loved it!

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.
