    This food was very expensive for what we received. One order was fully made wrong, one looked like it came with Kraft processed cheese. The waitresses acted like we were inconveniencing them by being there. We ordered mimosas (which were insanely priced) and took forever to get them, and tasted like they were made with tang. I would never come back to this place. The only thing it has going for them was how cool the room was decorated.

    Food was ok, what I ordered was messy and challenging to eat. Service was pretty much non existent for a mid day lunch.

    Our first visit to the Fortunate Fox was very unmemorable. Service was very slow, and it was almost 15 minutes until someone greeted our table for the first time (and there were only a few tables seated, it was not busy.) I had read about the slow service in the reviews prior but we still wanted to give this place a shot. However, our server was friendly and nice, perhaps just not experienced which I know is the case in the service industry these days. Food was good, nothing outstanding. It's a fine place to stop if you're in the area, though I wouldn't recommend it compared to the 100s of other options Toronto has to offer. I think with some more training given to the staff/ service standards, this could become a great place!

    They served on of our meals then left us. No follow up. When my friends meal went past reasonable for no show our waitress was MIA. Finally signaled someone else who checked. Apparently there was some mix up where the order was lost so we had to wait for it to be prepared. After we finished they took my friends plate and I asked for a box to take my leftover home. Had to ask a second time to get my box. The food was OK but clearly they were short staffed or allowed people to sit in a wider area than they could moniter

    Tables of eight or more are put on the same bill, but we were not given any warning of this via OpenTable when we made the reservation. Two of us needed to leave early and tried to settle our tab, which is when we found out the entire table had been put on one bill. We informed our server of what we ordered and asked her to print a bill for just our items but we were met with a firm "no." The manager on duty eventually split our two items from the bill, but the rest of our group experienced a nightmare settling up at the end of the night. If we had been informed when we made the reservation that we would be forcefully grouped on one bill with no option to split items off, we would have simply gone somewhere else. It would be great if OpenTable can add a note about this to the booking website. I love this restaurant and will continue to come, but the rest of my party are still reeling from the experience and confused why I even suggested the establishment given the hostility and hassle they experienced, so I cannot in good conscience recommend this experience to my colleagues and friends again.

    Fortunate Fox could possibly be the worst bar/restaurant I've been to in Toronto. The staff is so incredibly unorganized and inattentive. Our waitress didn't check on us once after she took our initial drink and app orders, after that we had to flag down other staff to get drinks. When we tried to get our bill, it took 30 min b/c they messed it up 4 times.... yes 4 times, I am not exaggerating. I had to write down what we got and the prices to make sure it was correct. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. I've had bad experiences here before, I kept giving them another chance b/c of their convenient location but that was most definitely the last time.

    Quite possibly one of the worst meals I’ve had in this city. Kept getting worse. Actually became laughable. Had to send a dish back -the fish smell was overpowering. There was obviously something wrong with the fish. I can’t remember the last time I had to send a meal back. So dissatisfied. Felt terrible for the waitress who was just trying to do her job.

    We were placed in the back corner of the empty restaurant for our reservation. We had to search for our waitress after being seated for 20 minutes and no service. Multiple mistakes were made and the manager ultimately removed the waitress from our table. To apologize we received 2 pieces of cake, for a family of 4.

    Met up with two friends and each of us was welcomed as we arrived and were impressed by the service from the get go. The food (steak frites for two of us and the deep dish peperoni pizza) were all deemed delicious and the great and attentive service continued throughout the meal. It was our first time in and it won’t be our last!

    I ordered the roast beef dinner and asked for the meat well done but it was cold and pink inside. It took us a while to get service, although there were only 2 people there, I don’t think it should’ve taken THAT long. The food that was done right was really good though. My friends ordered the kale salad, poutine, fish and chips and the spinach dip and they said they enjoyed it. My friend ordered the Roma meatballs thought and she did not enjoy it. The price for 2 small meatballs was way too high. Overall, an okay-ish restaurant, although I’d probably choose another one over this one. 3-ish/5.

    Really poor service. We all had meals and drinks. It took a really long time to get our first drinks. When we ordered another round our server forgot and we didn’t get drinks for another 20 minutes. The server was very overwhelmed and didn’t check on her tables frequently enough.

    From the moment my S.O. & I got to this place, we knew we were going to be in for trash service. First is first, there should always be someone at the front door ready to welcome you into the restaurant. Secondly, having a Locksmith fix the front door at peak business hours is extremely unprofessional and quite ridiculous considering that most Locksmith services work all around the clock. Thirdly, after waiting roughly 5 minutes just to have a staff come and greet us, I let the gentleman know that we had reservations and he just ignored that entirely which is rude & unprofessional. And lastly, I shouldn't have to get up out of my seat after waiting 30+ minutes for someone to come and attend to our table. Our overall stay at this restaurant was over two hours and that's ridiculous considering we both only had one drink and one plate of food. Now, as beautiful as the establishment is and how great the food was, I'm big on customer service and truthfully, it's extremely garbage at this location. I would not recommend coming here for a date night (or any night truthfully) if you're trying to have a great night. I do want to give them the benefit of the doubt considering the constant shutdowns that Toronto has experienced. However, service was extremely subpart and considering the place wasn't packed...at all... It's just not a good look. It's unfortunate (the irony) that the service was that bad because we would love to come back but after that service, we simply c a n n o t. Word of advice, retrain your stuff or hire people that actually care about their job because truthfully, my partner and I left with a bad taste in our mouths and not from the food. And to finally close, I would let your staff know that telling your customer that the table they're sitting at is "always forgotten" right before they're about to tip is an extremely foolish thing to do. Also consider removing this said table (the table in the corner by the bar..).

    Went for Valentine’s Day, food was okay. We ordered the taco pizza and nachos. Personally the flavor wasn’t there for me. Atmosphere is nice. We got seated in the middle with a love seat which for vday was cute cuz we could sit with one another. The bar is beautiful and the hostess was great even came and checked up on us. Overall, the food was the only part that was really lacking.

    I booked a table with OpenTable and they located us at the entrance of the establishment. We had multiple servers during the night, slow service, loud music and getting separate bills was a hassle! I chose this place because of its high ratings in OpenTable and also because of the pics they have posted. Unfortunately, I was disappointed
