The Westerly Ratings and Reviews
Always a good experience at the Westerley, staff are always friendly and attentive and delicious food.
Nice place, excellent not pushy service, wonderful food with good portions. A lovely place to enjoy good food and conversation.
Food was really Tasty. Cocktails were also great.
Good Night for sure
The food was good, the waiters were responsive, knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. It was a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere, and we were made to feel very welcome.
Great go-to restaurant for classic food done well and cocktails with a friend or two – love the ambience in this restaurant and the service is always friendly.
Sunday evening dining is surprisingly quiet at the Westerly.
Other than my table there was only one other - this offer mix feelings.
Happy it's not busy but miss the social ambiance of a busy restaurant.
The food was delicious ...In the future will try Saturday night.
Excellent food and service. Thank you
Great evening at The Westerly. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Food was great. Ambience excellent. Our second visit. We’ll go again!
Had a lovely dinner with four friends at the Westerly. The bartender seemed to be the only server on, and served the entire floor with ease. He made me a cocktail off the menu (moscow mule!) And everyone ate every morsel of food on their plate. From perfectly cooked salmon with orange marmalade to a creamy, mushroom filled risotto to mussels and frites, we were all quite impressed with our meal. Highly recommend the butter tart for desert and highly recommend dining at the Westerly!
We were hoping for a lovely night out for New Years. Turns out we were placed in a back room and they only table there. Our server was let off early and we subsequently had two other servers who seemed very disinterested in serving us. To say it politely we were forgotten about.
Had a lovely dinner in a nice neighborhood restaurant close to st. Joseph’s Hospital.. huge portions of great food.. the risotto was delicious and well prepared.. husbands steak frites was a large steak and lots of fries.. delicious.. great choice of local craft beers.. we’ll return sometime for brunch and bring friends for dinner.
Great neighborhood restaurant. Our only issue was that the EXCELLENT food was served cold (soup and main dish). Is there a lack of coordination between our server and the kitchen?
We will go back and give it another chance, the food is that good!
We were promptly seated for our reservation at 6:30pm for a dinner date. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very good although I found my short ribs to be somewhat overdone, but nonetheless very delicious. Great local beers on tap and lots of unique cocktails on their menu. We would definitely go back.
Conversation was not a problem at all. Not sure how to use your system to indicate that. We had a delicious meal with excellent service. Will be back again!
Loved the upbeat, friendly vibe in a great Toronto neighbourhood. Food was great as was the service. Had an awesome evening!
The brunch menu was diverse -- and the food was delicious. Also we love the fact that we could make a reservation. All-in-all -- I'd definitely recommend it and will go back!
The Westerly is truly a gem on Roncy. Their staff are all very knowledgeable about the food and beer. Great service. I’ve been there quite a few times and have never been disappointed.
Overall great food and friendly service. New menu was very good.
Our table was waiting for us when we arrived - waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable concerning the food and drink menus. Service was timely - not too fast, not too slow. Food Menu was small but there were enough options for us - hopefully the menu changes several times a year.
Great little gem of a find, so glad I took my friend's recommendation and tried the Westerly. Quiet and cosy restaurant, good for a date or as in our case a small group catch up. Noticed that they had a private room at the back as well which I would certainly make use of.
Food was excellent, service was outstanding. Our server was very attentive when needed and paid careful attention to the needs of the group during the night, super impressed and never felt over bothered as you tend to find in some restaurants. Would absolutely go back!
I hadn't been to the Westerly for a couple of years and was looking forward to it .
It was not the great experience I had in the past.
Service and food was below par.
Maybe it was just an off night.
Our evening was made great by our super friendly waiter, great food and awesome beer (Oast Brewery! yay!).
We'll be back for sure!
Always a great dining experience. Best of Roncy!!
Great food and service!
This was our first time at the Westerly, and we're glad we went! Service was prompt and friendly, with good descriptions of the available food and beverage options. Soup was cauliflower and parsnip, and was delicious. Both of our entrees were well prepared and presented. An enjoyable evening all around.
We loved the simplicity of the food and its very sophisticated full flavour. A true treat for the palate and the ambience, service and menu/wine choices are a perfect balance. Not to be missed for great food.
While the kids' food thankfully came out quickly, the adults' dishes - delicious burgers and steak - took a very long time. Service was otherwise good, our server being personable and informed. The noise level and room acoustics were extremely prohibitive to conversation and catching up with friends! Overall we enjoy The Westerly but would probably choose carefully when and with whom we return.
This might be my favorite brunch spot in Toronto. Sure, you can spend more and some places might have slightly better food, but this place is consistently amazing.
I have loved the Westerly every night over the years until this weekend.
I was craving a steak frites. It came and was a) already sliced and dripping onto the frites and b)
no longer very hot.
The great bread they used to have before meals was plain white baguette.
The service was as good as the ambience, but the food slid a bit.
I hope they get back on track!
Great from appetizers to dessert. Will definitely go back!
I took my best friend here for her birthday and it was perfect. We both adored the cozy and quiet atmosphere; the peaceful ambiance was just right at the end of a busy week. The food was flavourful without being overpowering and the service was excellent. I left The Westerly feeling so contented!
We have always had good food/wine at this restaurant.
Food was very good. But we had to wait a full hour before the first course arrived. It was also very noisy which was a shame. Food and wine could not compensate satisfactorily for the mentioned shortcomings.
great food and great service, this is why we always come back.
The Westerly never disappoints - good food, great service, wonderful ambiance. Thank you for making my birthday extra special with a surprise creme brulee with candle!
Loved this place. Great service, and the price for quality food was awesome!
Good food and great service from Bruce, our waiter. Relaxed ambiance that's good for date night or a get together with friends.
Great meal and really enjoyed the service. Will be back for sure, try the short ribs!!!
The brussel sprouts are a must! AMAZING!!!
Service was attentive and customized.
