    Food was late calls and terrible. They seem to be suffering extreme trouble in the kitchen. My hamburger was overdone and completely cold, as well as my friends vegetarian lasagna. My friend who ordered fajitas did not receive his order until 10 minutes after everyone else it was a true disappointment, so I’m not sure the restaurants fault staffing was an issue.

    The food is great so I will highly recommend for that. I am not sure what is up with the service part. On several occasions I waited 20-25 min before anyone came to take my order & I wasn’t even offered water. I had to go up to computer station to ask to put my order in. It was not that busy. Then no cutlery, but tables with no guests had cutlery. Recent visit, given a carafe of water & no glass… 15 min go by and got up and got my own glass. This should not need to happen.

    Excellent meal. Few notes - asked for salad instead of fries and was served fries, waiter did bring a side salad to correct. Bottle of wine brought to our table but not opened. We could not open the bottle of wine and needed to find the waiter to open the bottle. Wine should have been opened for us right away. When though it was a screw top, it should have been opened. Would definitely go back though - loved the food and menu choices.

    Dining rooms/bars are many along Bloor Street, and my impression was that our group would have like a couple of healthier options on the menu. Also, for what we had, we felt the price was a little too much. On the plus side, the fries were excellent!

    At a time when restaurants are supposed to be struggling, this place did nothing to make me want to come back. There were six of us and we asked for separate bills because none of us had cash. Who carries cash these days? The manager said no, but would consider it if the place wasn't busy when we wanted to pay. The rationale was that if it's busy the server doesn't have time to do separate bills. Before we placed our orders we considered leaving and going to the Duke of York which had no problem splitting the bill six ways. Clearly not all restaurants don't split the bills for six or more people. When it came time to pay, the restaurant was half full, the server chatty with other customers and ONLY ONE BILL. It was poor customer service and sadly we were forced to pay 18%. Why is such a gratuity mandatory when service was horrible from the get go? The restaurant lost six customers.

    About my experience in Toronto and at The Fortunate FOX. I teach hospitality management for 20y already, this was also my first time in Canada. So I was curious about what I was going to find out. I arrived late and was greeted by a young gentleman wearing an open vest and immediately I sensed the tone of the place, fun and relaxed. The entire roster was surprisingly young, I don't recall being in restaurant where everyone is on their 20s. The place was quite busy, but the service was attentive and professional at all times. During my career, I was always able to differentiate a fake smile, from a real one, here they were genuine, and not just towards me. My drinks were great, although different from what I'm used to. If you go there, please try their sausage board. It is a must. It was a Saturday night and I was expecting the place to be loud, they had a DJ on one side and a group of 25 people on the other, so it was loud, but not uncomfortable. I felt embraced by the fox, the place is comfortable and definitely showed me a different culture from what I'm used to. If all the restaurants in Toronto are like this, I'm sure I'll have the best time.

    This was my second time at the Fortunate Fox, cocktails were delicious, Andre is great. The only reason why I'm giving 4 stars is because he took my phone number weeks ago and never called me.

    I booked a reservation for 11:15 PM and got to the Fortunate Fox for 11:20 PM. When we got to the bar they were already closing up (I imagine due to the poor weather there weren't many people on the streets out and about). We were expecting to eat and have some drinks as we'd made a reservation. They were kind enough to at least let us look for another restaurant in the area indoors, the Bartender kindly offered us both a drink on the house. The cocktails were delicious, I can't speak for the food as we couldn't order any. The staff were pleasant.

    The resto showed real promise when we arrived. Nice atmosphere. Pleasant servers. In the end the food was over cooked and repeated mistakes were made with drink orders. They need to tighten things up.

    Planned on going for only a drink, ended up staying for 4 hours. The venue is cozy and the manager made was super attentive. My friend told she didn't drink alcohol and he immediately offered to make her any mocktail she wanted. He made a Mojito with passion fruit that was delicious. Will definitely come back to try the board games and the darts.

    The food was great. The chicken wings, hot honey, is delicious. I had ordered the steak frites, it was seasoned well and thick cut of steak. The margaritas were yummy. The only issue was the service. Since there’s no set server, we had a couple different staff come and check on us and we placed our orders with a bit of confusion. Other than that, will be coming back!

    Honestly it was quite the painful experience. They were out of half the menu but the servers didn't know so we had to reorder multiple times. Dishes came out 10-15mins apart after a long wait. The servers were friendly and trying their best, but management clearly set them up for failure. They were very ill prepared for a Friday evening.

    I came in with a friend and the place wasn’t that busy. The service was very disappointing. It took a long time to order and once the food came nobody came by to check on us. I had to find somebody to get the bill. Food was mediocre as well.
