Drinks were great however they could use a more expansive food menu. The service was a bit slow but understandable considering it was game night.

Was a fun, energetic environment, our waitress was awesome!! She really connected with us, checked in often to see if we needed anything and was very engaging. The food was delicious we had the salami pizza, and the butter chicken wings plus rosemary fries. My beer was also so good, it was raspberry flavoured. Yum!

The pizza was fantastic. The ambiance was good fir weekday lunch. Music a little louder then I’d like. We sat in the bar area near the high tops but overall pleasant.

Food was good and server was excellent, This restaurant is geared more for the younger people. We are over 60 so it was too loud for us. Glad we tried the Walrus though.

We enjoyed our meal. Service was fast for good but very slow for drinks. Started playing very loud music at 6:00 that took over the vibe and felt more night club and less nice bar. A bit early for that IMO. Cocktails were tasty, and the two bowls we had were good as well.

Would not recommend for vegans or vegetarians - one of the least accommodating restaurants in the core (they try to accommodate but you will end up with a salad with no dressing or with oil/vinegar only).

My executive was delayed arriving for the reservation and when I called them she was so helpful and made sure they still had a table even though they were 10-15 minutes delayed. It was a thank you lunch for a junior member of our team and it meant a lot to me to know that the table would still be there for them and he would be celebrated and get to relax for an hour or so. Thanks again!

Food was amazing, could not fault any of it. Chicken burger and hot sauce was perfect together. We also had spicy lamb pizza and a lovely quinoa and avocado salad, so fresh. 5 star review

I love this place, the food is excellent and the staff are all wonderful. I’ve never been disappointed.
My brother came from New York City for the weekend and ate at the Walrus Pub twice in one day.
Best place in Toronto.

Lunch today at The Walrus was enjoyable, with a couple of caveats. As was my experience from one other time, the noise levels were quite high (or energetic as Open Table prefers to call it!). In addition, I was hoping to try the spicy lamb pizza but our server indicated that it was not available today. The draft beer selection is not extensive but does contain some interesting & quite good choices (try the Great Lakes Kama Citra!) All in all the restaurant comes off a bit "corporate" in its approach but the food & beer both made up for this!

Horrible and rude server who talked back to us after punching in the wrong order. Food was decent. Manager listened and was professional, but did not go above and beyond to address the issue.

Wait staff weren’t welcoming from the moment we walked in and they seemed very entitled. Two of them got into an argument at one in the night. Drinks were good. Steak was awful.
