fantastic location to meet with friends . Good food , great atmosphere. Sit on the roof top it's worth the walk up the stairs .
Delicious lunch and they accommodated my friend's order when she wanted both fries and onion rings.
The Pilot is fantastic. The food is excellent value and not crazy expensive. The staff are amazing from the front/hostess staff to the wait staff and the bar team - all are warm, welcoming and hugely respectful. I love going there time and time again!!
was excellent and food was good but the seating area was a little cold because of extreme winds!
The best sweet potato fries.
The service and friendliness was super.
Didn't eat there so not sure why I had to review the food.
If it's not summer on the patio, the place is nothing special. Band ended at about 630, place was empty after..
Get a band that plays longer, that's a simple solution... Otherwise pretty boring, should have went to Hemingways.
Basic bar, the beer selection was small and the cocktails are OK. Service a little slow, server seemed to change so not sure if it was a bit of a staffing issue. Didn't eat, only snacked on fries which were below average.
Pros-$10 cocktails, ~$9.50 pints.
Cons-slow service, average selection of drinks.
Always a great place to go enjoy and eat good food

Many years I have visited this 75 year historic Restaurant
It is an experience to enjoy great food, fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff on a rooftop Patio at the end of October and be tasty warm.
We had a good lunch. The food was ish (nachos weren't warm, and weren't well made. Sandwiches were good. Service was outstanding. Not rushing back.
Service was excellent. Heated patio was very comfortable on a very chilly breezy day.
It was raining a bit abs a bit cold but you coul d not tell. The roof top was warm and dry!
It was awesome the staff and everything.Also I love the food.
Great roof top patio with excellent rain coverage.
Our server(s) were great. We appreciated the coffee refills, kindness in helping my friend customize her meal, and the fact that gluten-free toast was available! The wind blowing all the debris off the awnings and onto our table was a bit unpleasant, but it wasn't anything anyone could do anything about! I would definitely return.
heated patio was nice and warm, good distancing with some barriers between tables and COVID safety
I always love coming to the Pilot when I’m in town. The drinks are amazing and the service from the staff is incredible.
Overall great! Delicious food & reasonably priced! Service definitely needs some work but staff was so friendly!
Overall a good experience
Good food. Good portions. Great service. I highly recommend the noodles.
Quite enjoyed the butter chicken and the staff were great.
Also liked the distancing between tables on the roof top and the fact that it was quiet enough to have a conversation without any difficulty.
The Pilot is excellent (but you need good legs to go to the upstairs patio). The problem of the noise is due to the construction going on next door. But this is a problem that affects most of Toronto. The location is very good and the patio upstairs is very pleasant and well protected from sun and rain.
The food is excellent and reasonably priced.
Great ambience, location, food is pub food. Overall not bad.
had an amazing time with friends at the patio with great food and comfortable setup.
Went for brunch on the weekend and everything was amazing. We were a table of 8 and everyone’s order came out at the same time! The waffles are particularly delicious and so are the eggs Benedict! Highly recommend it.
I have been coming to The Pilot for years - it's a great spot for a drink. The rooftop patio is really lovely and the service is always excellent.
The food and service were both wonderful the ambience was only rated a bit lower because of the yellowjackets
Nice ambience, good food, excellent customer service
Excellent lunch on the Flight Deck. The Fish Tacos and the Smoked Pork Chop are highly recommended. And we kept dry, even through a torrential downpour!
a very nice patio, with tables well spaced and carefully sanitized. menu was quite extensive---food was well prepared and tasty. service was slow to get started due to shift change with our initial server--but once ordered, food was served quite quickly. we will go back when we are in the area
Service and food was great! Glad this place survived the pandemic. Big fan of the rooftop patio
The staff were very accommodating and went out of their way to advise which dishes were in keeping with our dietary restrictions.
They have a mice problem and the staff called it an open secret. Literally had mice walk up to our feet.
Our food came out half cold to the touch (this was before told our waiter).
The rooftop patio was delightful.
Food was terrible. Not going back there.
Salmon was too sweet and thai noodles was too sour. We sent back thai noodles coz it was way too terrible.
Food not that great but service good and ambience perfect
Nice spot with good views, reasonably priced but a bit loud. Good safety protocols in place. Popular spot.
The food was great and really worth it. The patio was really cute and nice. Just the down side of being outside was having to deal with bees and there is construction happening on the street so it is very loud. Our server was really fast and kind. Overall it was a great experience all around.
Great patio with delicious food and friendly servers! The 2 specials of the evening: shishito peppers and cajun spiced pickerel were awesome ....so was the smoked pork chop . Will definitely go back to try their other dishes!
Their salads are absolutely fantastic!
3rd floor patio is an excellent space for watching a game, having a few drinks and some food. Staff is friendly and we’re on top of cleaning and keeping everyone spaced and safe.
