    It's great to see two cider options on the menu, along with a gluten-free beer: Glutenberg Blonde, the Montreal favourite. Thank you for thinking of your Celiac and gluten-conscious customers!

    We love the rooftop experience at The Pilot -- fresh air, evening sun, the rolled-out roof if it rains, and a happy vibe with great service and food.

    Went for an early Mother’s Day brunch on a Saturday. The food was good but the service was not. After a long wait for our food, of the 6 of us, 2 orders were wrong. It then took another 20 minutes for them to bring a scrambled eggs. Not much of an apology but they did remove that main from the bill. Good food but no ambience and the servers don’t seem to care much and are definitely far from friendly.
    The PilotResponded on May 15, 2024
    Hi Meredith, we are very sorry that your experience was not up to par. We pride ourselves in customer service, so it is very disappointing when we do not reach the standard. I will be reaching out to you privately if you would be willing to discuss this further.

    Lovely roof top brunch. Leisurely paced. Excellent half price prosecco was a gift. There were three of us, three different brunch specials and we were each delighted with our meal. Service was friendly and professional. Highly recommend.

    Fun little spot - love the open air heated rooftop . The 4 steep flights of stairs are torture but once you’re there it’s good! Food was ok - they only serve the brunch menu on the weekends 11-230. shakshuka was watery with way too many peppers and needed seasoning, the add on sausages were just weird - It should have been chorizo. The Cobb salad was nice and the eggs benny was ok. For yorkville it’s a dive bar which is what we wanted - just wish the food was a bit better
