The Loose Moose is a lively bar in downtown Toronto favoured by locals and out-of-towners since 1989. Their fondness may have something to do with its beer selection. After all, with over 65 varieties on tap, repeat visits are kind of a given, especially for lovers of Canadian craft. Beer isn't the only thing we have to brag about. With inventive plates, generous portions and the cleanest taps in the city, this is a bar you’ll likely come back to — plan or no plan.


Private Dining

The Loose Moose is still partying, nearly three decades after launching onto the Toronto bar scene. With seating for more than 400 guests on both levels, it is the place to meet and make new friends, listen to live music, or catch the game.

Very fun place amazing staff attentive for how busy they get
Situated where it is in Toronto you're going to pay more for your meals, but the foods have different creative twists that aren't so creative they would scare people away.
Again I cant say enough about the staff they were phenomenal and bonus they have Guinness on tap and can pour it well!

I liked the food, the service was okay not the best. Our waiter kept forgetting things, such as we asked for water. They gave us a jug of water with out glasses, my drink I asked to have in fancier glass because I do not drink alcohol and the waiter never did that.

My family and I enjoyed our dinner at The Loose Moose prior to seeing a comedy show at The Second City. We arrived before our reservation time, so we had some ore-dinner drinks at The Antler Room below The Loose Moose and very much enjoyed that atmosphere, as well. Would frequent both places again!

Everything was great EXCEPT the major variable that they DID NOT play the sound of the Toronto Maple Leafs game. The game was on the TV's but they had music playing on the speakers.
This may be just me, but I think it's pretty brutal that a sports bar in downtown Toronto on a Saturday night, less than a 5 minute walk from the Scotia Bank Centre, did NOT have the volume of the game on. As a Leafs fan that expects this, it was frustrating to say the least.

We came for some snacks before the raptors game. It was busy but we were so happy we made a reso. Our table was great, service was great and food was fantastic. Exactly what we wanted.

We had a large party group for the raptors game and management would not turn on the game’s sound. Instead they chose to play terrible and loud music.
We eventually ended up going to a bar where they allowed sound for sports games.
It’s very odd that they have so many televisions showing games and don’t allow for sound! I would not recommend this bar if you’re a sports fan, (or if you like good music).

Went here before the hockey game, close to the Scotia arena.
Food is reasonably priced but wine is overpriced. 12-13 dollar bottle sells for $40. Service was ok. We had nachos, they were boring. Beer of the day was Kronenburg at 6 bucks a bottle which was the best value.

My overall experience was alright. The steak frites I ordered was way too raw for medium rare. The mac and cheese from the appetizer didn't taste very good.. However, I did enjoy the service and my $15 of coupon :)

We were in Toronto for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (my son was in it, got 3rd Canadian!) and some of us wanted to go out for a fun night the night before. Dinner and Drinks at the Loose Moose was great and then we moved downstairs to the Antler Room for more drinks and live band ("Speak Easy" I think they were called). Had a blast dancing and listening to great music (really good Alanis Morrisette songs!) Was a great night out!

We had a great meal. My husband had the brisket tacos (4) and he could have used more food. Ex fries, salad etc. It wasn’t quite enough for him. James our server was awesome. Kept us entertained and always checked on us. We will definitely return next time we visit Toronto.

Disappointed. I had heard a lot about this place and it just didn't live up to any of it. I booked in advance for my birthday and then was told to just 'grab a table' when we arrived. Service was very poor. She was not happy doing her job. Food was good. The menu was fun. It's just not worth the money compared to other great restaurants in downtown. Maybe go here for a drink but go for dinner elsewhere.

The food was good and the server was very nice and apologetic, but the time it took to get our drinks and dessert was more than it should have been and by the time we received our coffee it was cold. Generally the service is pretty good, hoping this was a one off.

I've been here a few times in the past with friends, but this time was special because my best friend from Australia was visiting, and this was one of the last places we had a meal together. It was a little noisier than I remembered, but overall it was a fun and relaxing experience, and I'd do it again.

The wings were good, the 'Big Bird' was disappointing as the batter looked like a brown piece of plastic on my plate (over fried, dirty oil). Manager was quick to offer an alternative and did not charge us for my meal which I thought was very generous

Got the Bid Bird which was delicious. Also got a small Caesar salad which I would've enjoyed more if there was more dressing on it - there was barely any. The place can get really loud with the music and conversations but overall a nice casual place for big and small groups. Our server wasn't very friendly, she barely smiled and when you asked for something it's like you were bothering her. When she would serve the drinks she was practically slamming it on the table as if she was mad.
