Reserved table for 8. Had drinks and food and was told that we had to leave as there was another reservation. Was not informed of a time limit when reservation was booked. Left a bad impression for me and my coworkers who dine here often.

Welcoming venue in a funky boutique hotel. Doors open on the street and there’s a sidewalk terrace weather permitting. Half price wine bottles on the the Sunday we were there and nice and affordable menu.

My group of 20 arrived and we had tables set and waiting for us. The service was prompt and friendly, our drinks were never empty and the food was amazing. Highly recommended for large parties.

Didn't serve the full menu until 5pm on Saturday. That is not made clear anywhere on the website. The eggplant parm and 2 other dishes were cold when they got to us.

The reservation was not recognized. The service was slow. The noise level was intolerable. No further custom can be expected at this location.

I had made a reservation for 10 people and the table was only set for 8. It worked out fine in the end, it's just frustrating when reservations are not honoured correctly.

A very noisy space and food is fair at best — too sweet, too tough, too salty, depending on what you order. The wait staff is terrific, however, and go out of their way to serve up your menu choices.

The Fortunate Fox is likely good for a drink with friends if you don't want to talk much on a Saturday night. The drinks are interesting and diverse. The food is not great. The menu appears tasty but the execution is lacklustre. We had 2 brunches as we were staying at the hotel there and a dinner with friends. I would recommend none of the food. It's a loud bar with comfortable decor. Basically just good for drinking and hanging out.

Booked a table for eight for my birthday. One of my guest received nachos the tasted like a dirty dish rag was wrung out over them. Other guest waited very long to order entrées. The server was extremely busy and hard to reach. This was a Wednesday night. The bar did not have tomato juice. Other guest reported that they were not offered refill on drink. I did not receive a dessert menu or any sort of birthday cake /dessert type thing. Will Never go there again

The food was good, the service-excellent. I was worried that it would be noisy, it was not.
I would definitely recommend The Fortunate Fox for a Friday night dinner and a drink.

This was a pleasant find. We really appreciated that the noise level was low enough that we could have a conversation. The food came out quickly and was good. The staff were friendly but we had to wave them down a couple times (maybe due to staff shortage?). It's great for a casual evening out with friends, co-workers or a small group.

The Fortunate Fox can best be described as a Pub that is attached to an IHG Property (On Bloor west, near Spadina); in the middle of the St. George - U of T community.
The Pub Fare is 'Fair' with Wings being their specialty.
It appears to lack character; as it's a large room with a horseshoe shaped bar that is the focal point.

The Staff were bragging about how busy they were during PDAC week.
Let's see what they do during the upcoming St. Paddy's Day weekend ?


Slainte!

We asked for specific table and were given it. My 4 friends and I have what I call marathon lunches every 2 or 3 months meaning we are there anywhere from 5 to 7 hours and often order dinner as well. Since I've been scheduling the FF, they love it there so we'll keep coming back. Maxine

Not as great as was hoping, nice little cozy restaurant however the servers were barely paying attention and did not take time to note orders causing an error in one order which was promptly corrected, thankfully.

Our visit to the Fortunate Fox was okay. Nothing terrible, but nothing great either. Really middle of the road. Service and Food were fine, but in today's competitive market place, that isn't enough to make me want to go back. Overall... meh.

Nice restaurant with good interior design and good food as well. Went on a Monday and tried the Fox Burger, Short Rib Hash, and the Breakfast Pizette. The Short Rib Hash was amazing and the other two were solid renditions of pretty standard menu items. Only criticism would be the lack of servers, and a couple flies that kept flying around our table. Also, they forgot to check me in for opentable so it appears I didn't get points added to my account even though I went on time and made a reservation. :(
