A great place for an informal meal. I recommend it to anyone wanting good food in a relaxing and informal environment.
We had a lovely time at the pilot during the last weekend of the summer! The heated patio was really appreciated :)
Our server Dorothy was excellent - attentive and approachable. She was a key part of our enjoyable evening. It was one of my few times going out since Covid so this was very reassuring. Host staff were also great. Client facing workers taking extra risks right now so big up to the team. Cheers! James
The best service !!!!
Server was great, food not so much -
nachos were dry and not that great. the fries we ordered seemed like the end of the bag as all the fries were tiny.
drinks were not that great - ordered a pitcher of sangaria but it didn’t taste like a sangaria.
Great spot for brunch, lunch and dinner up on the flight deck!
Fantastic service, and we greatly appreciated their adherence to COVID safety protocols.
We felt safe while greatly enjoying our small get together.
Great service. Thank you!! Love coming here and the rooftop patio is Covid safe!!
It's a very nice place to have dinner with friends or with your couple!
Food was amazing! Our server was really good as well
Excellent food and service.
Nicely spaced out tables. Well appointed hygiene staff watching over the volume of people.
Good comfortable experience.
Chairs suck... my back us killing me.
Been going there for 50-plus years, so glad to see many of the familiar staffers still aboard, Food never been an issue,
Great patio. Good social distance plan and cleaning regimen. Always a consistent positive experience. Worth the climb. Lots of construction around it but easy to ignore.
Great meal on one of my favourite Toronto patios.
Best rooftop seats. Good food. Good service. Felt safe from Covid due to protocols.
My friend and I had a great time.
Will come back.
We had dinner here on The patio on a beautiful warm night and the breeze was perfect!
The food was great - it’s a tavern so please be aware not ‘fine’ dining but everything was delicious and the drinks we great too. Come for a relaxed, good time
Excellent service and attention by staff and management.
Absolute mismanagement and a terrible experience.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, although we're very sorry and disappointed you had such a negative experience. We've messaged you privately to discuss this further.
Great experience overall; great staff, good food etc
Lovely upper deck. People spaced part, staff are very diligently cleaning and wearing masks. Great time and good food, lovely evening!
Average food but cool atmosphere! I would come again.
Loved the rooftop patio. The food is mediocre - not bad but nothing special. Good service and nice vibe. Enjoyed sharing the sangria pitcher - great value.
Didn't eat so can't comment in the food but ambience, service and Covid protections all seemed in good order.
Ordered the smoked salmon flatbread - very delicious ! Sour cream was light and not overpowering, lots of smoked salmon on top
It was a very great experience, I really like it, the foods the service, everyone follows safety procedures, clean, friendly environment, feels like I’m in Aviation, as a Pilot visiting this place is absolutely gorgeous, overall what can I say I definitely come back again.
Nice space, a venue as expected. The service was good, the food exactly what we though it be. Generous in portion and very tasty.
This is a lovely place. The outdoor (rooftop) seating is very cosy, the right balance of shade, sunbeams and summer breeze. Although you hear the buzy-city sounds, you can talk easily. The food was fresh and tasty. I especially enjoyed mussels and non-alcohol mohitos. This place is great for lunch with friends or colleagues, but I also can imagine it as a good place to go on a date.
The rooftop patio was comfortable and service was excellent.
Great patio! So glad to have the retractable awning when it started to rain briefly.
Great place! Food was good, drinks were good, it's not too pricey. The rooftop is beautiful.
Patio is lovely, tables well spaced, staff did a great job. Just a bit difficult to talk to the table next to us because of the loud music. Otherwise a great experience.
At the entrance to the rooftop, the host was pretty rude. We were giving her our information, she wasn't even replying and giving us attitude. That wasn't a good start but the food and drinks were good.
Went to the Pilot for Brunch on Saturday afternoon. We sat on the Flight Deck and it was perfect. We felt really safe with the protocols they’ve put in place there. You can see the staff constantly cleaning and sanitizing touch points and tables. Super spacious patio on the roof top with shade and sun options. The food is delicious and the drinks were refreshing! Service was great and attentive. One of my favourite places in this area to have a drink or eat some favourites.
Reservation doesn’t guarantee patio seating (we were seated indoors). Our party asked to be seated outdoors and the hostess told us that they would check in with us if something opens up. We didn’t see that hostess for the rest of the night. Otherwise, super relaxed and easy place for drinks.
Staff was excellent, food was good and overall a good experience.
Took long for waiter to give service. Food was not prepared well, wings were overdone.
Love the patio. Service was great. Food however was all right. Typical restaurant menu. No wow factor. Just good!
The set up was good and organized. I appreciated that they were able to lower the shades to help block the scorching sun, though I wish I had asked earlier. Staff was attentive and they did a good job at social distancing. The food was good and the prices were fair. Fortunately no construction noise going on. Nice to have this rooftop patio in the heart of the city!
Enjoyed the fish and chips. The service and atmosphere were great!
