Promptly seated us upon arrival exactly at our reservation time, super friendly and attentive server. Drinks were oh so good and the food was Hot and delicious. Music added to what is already a superbly decorated and intimate feeling restaurant. We will indeed return!

We would have preferred a quieter table by the window as we had requested while making the reservation.

Had date night with my fiancée and what a treat the night was. We shared a few small apps and some of the tastiest oysters we’ve had before a main and a few small sides which were all fantastic. The service at the bar was impeccable and they really know how to make an amazing cocktail. The wine list is nice and varied while not being too large and is also well priced. It was bright enough that we could see and read our menus without issue but not so bright that it spoiled the mood. The music was at a level that you could hear it but we were never talking over it, perfect background level.

Great food and ambiance. Our server seemed like she’d rather be anywhere but at work. Hope she’s having a better day today.

Our waiter was great! Attentive and friendly, not too overbearing.
I would definitely go back and try other things on the menu. Winterlicious menu was a great deal too!

Been to Weslodge several times. The food is great and has a cool western atmosphere. However, this time our service was very slow and overwhelmed, with us waiting for over 20 minutes for the credit card machine after receiving our bills. The food is also excellent. Make sure you get the fried chicken and fried cauliflower - Personal favourites!

The NYE dinner was too expensive for what we had. Also the tuna tartare was too acid with too much vinegar that you can't taste the tuna. Portions way too small (stater, main, dessert) for 90CAD total for each person and also the place too dark to see also the menu.
By The way the ambience seems cool so I will give it a try again maybe during a normal day this time.

New Year’s Eve. got sat at the bar. Was given very small portions for the pre fixed menu. The steak was so tiny and was bloody even when I asked for it well done. At first I was told they couldn’t do anything about it and then they took it to fix it. When given to me well done. They’re we’re two pieces, one cold and one warm. Overall the staff was very friendly but for New Year’s Eve and for it to already be a fixed menu there was a lot of confusion. Not worth it.

I’ve been before, and recommended it to my friends for New Year’s Eve. However, I don’t think they will be going back, and I’m not sure if I will.

Service was very good, and the place has a great look. The music was way too loud, especially when the DJ started… but, it was New Year’s Eve, so fine.

The big problem was the food. Very tasty, but the size of the main was an absolute joke. We had a fixed price for a three course meal, and we were still very hungry by the end of it. And, of course, there was no other food to order...

We bought two bottles of champagne - that’s where you make the money. Skimping on portion size will lose you your future customers.

Sat at bar with a friend. Bar tenders were slow and it was not busy, since it was early. They never asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything else etc once wine was delivered. I asked if they serve charcuterie, was told no and he referred me to a diff restaurant meanwhile I had ordered a bottle of wine so clearly I wasn’t going elsewhere. Not to mention that doesn’t look good if they’re telling me to spend my money elsewhere!

Friend and I were irritated and left after wine was finished. Also wine list is nothing special and overpriced for what is offered and wine per glass is a rip off!

The reservation was for 9:15 but at 9:30 our table was still not ready. The staff gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to make up for it which was nice but we only got our table close to 10pm. Food and cocktails were great. Waitress was rarely at our table since it was a very busy Saturday night. Aside from being seated late, overall it was a good experience.

Unfortunately we had a bad experience. After waiting for 45 minutes for drinks then we were told did not have the beer, wine and Baileys that we wanted. Then the food took forever and she forgot to offer coffee at the end. The service was bad but we were in 3 couples so one couple gave 18% tip, other 10% and the other 15%. Lina our waitress was not happy so she would say Merry Christmas in saying goodbye ironically because she was whispering to the other waiter with an angry face on us. How rude. Her name was Lina. She should be grateful that she got something after the poor service we provided us.

It was great however at the beginning I ordered a turkey and a sidecar of coke my sidecar had lots of particles in the glass and my friends wine had lip stick all over the rim.

The food was tasty great scotched egg and the salad I had also was under estimated, it was soo tasty.

The server had great conversation recommending a couple places to go and visit. Even a Netflix suggestion for the evening, keep up the personal touches however for the drinks both being very dirty no compensation was done just a new one.

It was my second time there, the first time was great, but the second time everything was horrible but the food. The waitress was definitely on some kind of drugs, she was breaking plates, which what I though was the manager (Tall, slim guy with faded hair) encouraged us to applaud to that behavior. The service was horrible to a point the bartender had to step in and take our orders and basically do her job. I came there for my birthday and no one acknowledged it, even though it stated it on my reservation and also told her. The bartender was also on something, he was definitely not all there. At the end, one of my friends was last to pay her bill and the waitress was no where to be found. My friend had to manually punch in the numbers in the machine and completed the transaction. The restaurant wasn't full either on a Sunday which is fine, but that kind of behavior is unacceptable. I really like the food there and everything about the place, that's why I came back. Total disaster for the service and never experienced something like that before. I might give the restaurant one more chance, but on a different day that the staff isn't waisted on a substance, only because the food is good.

Sorry was disappointed,mainly with the food. French fries were cold, and really not good. Not sure what potatoes you are using!,
One of our guests had to wait for her food while the rest of us had already been served.
I was just expecting a much higher standard for downtown Toronto.

From the moment we walked in the door, or rather, when the door finally opened, our experience was disappointing. Our reservation was not recognized, we had to show our open table confirmation to get our table in the empty restaurant. After 15 mins of waiting to be served, we wandered the floor, found a server ourselves, we then poured our own wine and cleared our own dishes. From start to finish, we were met with unerring levels of mediocrity - McDonald’s level service at very premium prices.

It was extrememly dark in the restaurant. Could barely read the menu. Due to this I thought I was ordering a $16 glass of Remy only to have read out Remy XO instead of the VSOP by mistake. It was a mistake that cost me $45 for a 1oz shot of the wrong brandy. Management did nothing to help so my bill ended up being $107 plus $5 tip to a great waitress. 🙄 Becareful when ordering as the menu prices are not in order they are all over the place.

Check out the photos I took. I took one of then twice to reflect how dark it truly was in the restautant compared to the brightness from the flash on my smartphone.

Food was really good. Great 80's and 90's music. Not too loud we could hear eachother. Then again on my reservation I did request a 'fairly quiet booth'. Food prep time was decent. I would go again, but ask verbally cost of drinks before making my order.

Sunday brunch. Soundtrack was awesome. Awesome mix of guests. Staff was super on point; attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Tried the new Fried Green Tomato BLT and enjoyed. My friend and I also made good work getting our value from the bottomless mimosas... the staff kindly kept our glasses full. I want to try the smoked trout with scrambled eggs open face on sourdough next time - came highly recommended and looked good, too! This place is a favourite neighbourhood spot - I like going early for best service and enjoying the bustle as we’re finishing up. Would go back.

The staff were charming, helpful and made our night! We especially wanted to extend our thanks to Neil who made us feel particularly welcome on our first visit to the restaurant.

Showed up for rezo @ 9:30 15 min early. Ordered three drinks at bar $75, settled with bartender. Sat at table ordered 3 apps at 9:30 with intention to then order mains, but apps never came until 10:30. Outrageous. Left restaurant. Will only consider going back here for over priced drinks. Not food/service.
