Servers repeatedly asked me if I was done with my plate that still had food on it. Time after time, I felt like a pig on front of my clients. On the fourth time I allowed them to remove my plate. Usually, I configure my cutlery to indicate when it's time. I needed a 'do not disturb sign'

We were about 15 minutes late to arrive due to a GO train issue, and the Pub was quite accommodating. As we were going to a concert at the SONY centre, they were very quick to take our order and we still had plenty of time to get to the concert. Service was great. They suggested a great draft and the food was delicious. We will go back again.

The serving staff (splendily professional and possessing an appropriately wry sense of humour), the set up and food and beverage quality were excellent. If I ever host a staff event in Toronto again, this will be my first (and hopefully sole) choice.

Food was okay. Service was good and while the atmosphere was great for a certain crowd, it didn’t suit our needs. We were disappointed with the food.

Very slow service. Ordered a burger on a gluten free bun. Noticed on bill that we were not charged extra for bun. Waitress then confirmed that she forgot to include it in the order. Got a half hearted apology

Service: We were seated at the bar and had trouble getting attention from the bartender or servers as they were servicing the other end of the bar for the most part. This is after waving / trying to get their attention over 5 times.
Food: My medium steak was closer to well done. Sent back. Chef cut in half and showed me a tiny core of a pink.
Ambiance: Good. Upscale. Relaxed.

First time going to Walrus after being referred to by a close friend. Went there before a Leafs game as it’s a short enough walk to Scotiabank Arena. SO glad that we did. Drinks and food were fantastic (make sure to check out the tonic menu!). Ambiance was set perfectly by multi-level seating segregated cleverly with glass architectural pieces; truly unique decor. Can’t wait to come back! Special thanks for the incredible experience, Walrus staff!

Walrus is what you expect. It's atmosphere is vibrant albeit a bit loud. The food is very well done and tasty, though our fries were obviously old (lukewarm and soggy). Pricing is consistent with other downtown lunch places.

Great atmosphere. The food was delicious. The service was prompt and polite. The noise level was a little on the higher side because everyone was there prior to a show at the Sony Centre and also the Leaf game. Lots of people but it didn't feel overcrowded.

They were very accommodating when I had called and asked to push back my reservation, as we were running late. Our server was amazing and did a great job! Promt with drinks and taking our order, food delivery time was quick even though the place was busy! She brought over a dessert, on the house, as we were celebrating a birthday at the table, which was appreciated. Definitely returning!

Please get a espresso machine, most restaurants of your size would have one to make basic coffee drinks.

Food was very good and service was good but the noise level (due to music) was so high that although we were sitting right next to each other we still had to lean in to hear each other in a conversation. It was very obvious at 5 or 5:30 that the music volume was increased greatly which was a bit disappointing when I was dining with a friend a hadn't seen in quite some time so conversation was really important to us.

The menu and drinks are interest, but a little bit disappointed that the walrus burger is not made from walrus.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is very nice for business and personal meetings.

Gets very busy but reservations are doable early in the morning.

Nice place, but a little too loud for my liking and not a huge fan of the menu options either. This place is convenient for work lunches, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go after work hours.

Being in the heart of the financial district (and not the red light district), the waitress could use a little more clothing as well...kind of disturbing in this "Me2" era, especially.

Ordered a bottle of wine with dinner. For the first time ever, at any restaurant, the waitress did not bother allowing us to taste the wine! She just poured glasses for everyone. I thought this was rather odd and very amateurish. Otherwise, food was tasty.

Would recommend the Tuna Sashimi dish (lunch). Friends had a pizza & Walrus burger and weren't wowed. Had hoped for a larger beer selection. When filled, it's incredibly noisy and make it almost impossible to have a conversation. Likely won't go back for these reasons.
