The Prix Fixe is available each week from Sunday to Wednesday for $25
I had the steak frites. It came with a few leaves of arugula, however, I would have preferred a vegetable accompaniment to my steak, however, I understand why Steak Frites is on menus - there are men who eat steak, but refuse to eat vegetables.
Took my date here for his birthday dinner at 7pm on Wednesday...restaurant was completely empty at the time we arrived. We were seated on the patio which was beautiful. Service was pretty good. I requested dessert with a candle on my Opentable reservation and they did so which was great. We told the waitress we were sharing our appetizers so she brought our salad out on 2 plates which was nice and extra plates for us to share our mains.
Great Patio for a dinner with friends, enough spots on the patio for 6-8 at a table or cozier 2 person meals.
The restaurant was the perfect spot for a birthday celebration for my partner. The food and service was outstanding. I must admit that although the server became preoccupied with other customers and misplaced an order, the situation was handled with such professionalism and respect that it improved my impression of Sidecar even more.
Nice patio but food was undercooked (chicken) which is a serious health issue. Staff took it back and heated it up more (probably microwave) but no apology. I wasn’t able to eat it at that point but was still charged the full price. Too bad.
Delicious food and excellent service. A hidden gem.
Watery old fashioned was disappointing. Ambiance was nice and cosy. Service was slow.
The server was friendly and attentive. The outdoor patio is lovely. The food was tasty and well executed.
Overall a very good dining experience.
Food was average. Charged for water we didn’t ask for. Won’t be back.
The food was good but the service was bad :(
We were ignored multiple times for long periods and the restaurant was not even busy.
Made reservation on OpenTable - upon arrival requested seating on patio. Although unavailable at first, once we had finished our appetizers, the manager moved us out onto back patio. Wine, appetizers, and main dishes were all excellent. Enjoyed our dinner experience at Sidecar - would definitely come back and definitely recommend.
Fixed Price menu was excellent. Steak frites was excellent. Good portion and we'll cooked.
Beautiful outdoor patio in the back of the restaurant. The food is very good and prices are reasonable.
Lovely evening on the patio. Food was delicious and service attentive.
The food was amazing and the cocktails were delicious but unfortunately the service was poor and extremely slow. We were a group of 8 people so we understand it might have taken a bit longer but our dinner took almost 4 hours. The server didn't check in once with us to see how we were doing or to explain the delays. If you plan to go I'd recommend going with a smaller group.
As always every thing was excellent.
Service was a bit slow but food was very tasty and fresh.
Great resto. Long tenure in Toronto. Well executed food, simple and elegant. Love it.
Great steak with frites. Went well with their pale ale. Sat out on the patio great ambiance.
Delightful place enjoyed by all.Great service and delicious food
Great meal and service, although service was a little slow. I highly recommend Sidecar. The food was excellent and so was the host.
We were seated outside on the patio and it was perfect - lively but not too noisy, and great friendly service. I had the salmon medium rare, and it was excellent. Price was reasonable!
It was absolutely lovely. All of it. Food, service, cocktails, wine, ambiance. Gorgeous.
Sidecar is simply terrific. On a recent visit with family, we participated in their prix fixe menu. The food was gorgeous, the portions terrific the price unbelievably reasonable. I had a lovely parsnip based soup that was robust with flavour and yet subtle. It was gentle, the texture luxurious and perfect for a summer evening. The portion was generous and so good not a drop could be left behind. My husband had their Sidecar salad which was equally fabulous, filled with cubed jicama, corn, onion, tomato, cucumber, feta and creamy oregano. I had the salmon while he ordered the steak frites. He was served an 8oz petite tender steak, prepared perfectly alongside parmesan frites with sriracha aioli. It was superb, the frites were spectacular. Others at the table ordered the crispy half chicken with smashed fingerlings, asparagus and pan juices.
Everything was rich with flavour and delightful. My salmon came with golden beets alongside broccolini and himeji. It was light, fresh and delicious. The vegetables had a delicate thin sauce over them that was perfect. Dessert was a chocolate terrine that was exquisite. Rich and decadent without being heavy. The wine list afforded us a lovely selection of wines which was in line with the food, all fairly priced and delicious. This place is amazing. The food is fabulous, the ambiance is gorgeous and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the lovely presentation and immaculate service. Everything was excellent. There are very few places in Toronto that offer such a wonderful dining experience without breaking the bank. Sidecar is all of that and more. Looking forward to going back and soon!
Loved this place, will be returning. Great food and patio is special..
Fantastic venue great staff and a great price!!!
Always like eating at Sidecar. Always makes us feel welcome. Good to see the patio . Quite a quiet and friendly spot. The menu is small but can enjoy their offerings.
The food, service, and cocktails were wonderful as always.
The food was incredible as always and having been here many times the service level is always good, but today was exceptional. Thank you Sidecar staff as always for a wonderful experience!
Our family went to Sidecar for Mother's day, and it was a bit of a disaster.
We were seated promptly , but it quickly went down hill from there.
Long story short : hour and half to get our food . Waiter and metr' d were inattentive and scarce. Food was sub par - seafood pasta dish was inedibly salty and had to be sent back. My salmon had a fishy , unfresh taste and smell , on a pitiful bed of overcooked greens.
They did offer us complimentary desserts and coffee as an apology.
Will not be going back anytime soon.
Two dinners, two weekends in row. Delicious food, great cocktails, yummy cheesecake. Great place. Love this place.
Poor service. Both tables sat after us got drinks before we did. Seemed like the waitress did not want to serve our table. Had to tell her we were ready to order.
Both of us ordered pasta. My carbonara was mushy and almost to salty to eat. We also had the mushroom buccatini which was over seasoned as well.
Had been there 3-4 times before but this was so bad I won’t be returning.
It was lovely and I was welcomed as a single diner. This is important. I will come again.
A most enjoyable experience which I would highly recommend. Friendly, competent and professional service. Superb value, particularly when having the "prix fixe" option. Three of us had the steak frites which was thoroughly enjoyable. Two others had the salmon which one described as being very good and the other as being okay.
One suggestion, eliminate the silly $1.00 charge for water. If you need to recover an additional $1.00 per guest, simply raise your price.
Will definitely return.
One of our favourites. Delicious food, pleasant service, good location, solid value.
Had a great meal with friends and the servers were very accomodating. We may have been a bit of a handful as our numbers changed but they handled it without skipping a beat. Had a vegan celiac guest who was also very happy with how they modified a meal and the servers and kitchen knew what they needed to do to accomodate.
We were a group of three couples out for a nice dinner. The ice storm didn't stop us and we were all glad that we had decided to come. Even our fussiest member (and I mean really fussy) was satisfied. The restaurant is small and pleasant. We were able to hear each other, which was appreciated. The serving staff were very efficient and the food was really good, nicely seasoned, fresh, pleasingly presented and really tasty. Chicken was moist and tender, crab cakes were delicious and the desserts were impressive. I would definitely go again.
Sat upstairs. Food Fabulous service ok. Will go back!
