Had the braised ribs with garlic mash.
Excellent and satisfying.
Ribs were very tender and flavorful.
My personal taste would be for more seasoning.
Barman/ waiter was a good guy.
Really grear local place. Great for special occasions.
Excellent! Doug and his team are great.
This was a good food and great location in this community
We all loved the food . We had the pre fixe menu.
Steak was so good. Loved the brûlée .
Will come back for brunch someday soon.
We always have a great time at the westerly. Good ambiance, great cocktails and good food. We normally go for brunch and this was the first time in a while that we went for dinner. They had an awesome fish and chip special which everybody at my table really enjoyed.
I always love coming here and this time was no different. I brought our team here for dinner after a long day and it was exactly what we all needed. Great service, fantastic drinks and amazing food!
Brilliant (Irish) waiter - familiar with food and wine and cocktails. The cocktails were unique and delicious. All our meals were really delicious with a twist on the usual. For instance a marmalade and creme fresh sauce on the salmon sounds unusual - but it really worked well. The grilled veggies were perfect. I tried my friend’s steak - it tasted like grass fed and was tender and so good.
I can’t wait to go back!
Really enjoyed our wonderful dinner. The service was exceptional and I would happily return.
Great food! Very unique options. Fast friendly service. We will be back!
Very mediocre. Neither good or bad but meh. Got the mushroom risotto and could have done an equally good or better job at a home for a fraction of the cost.
Terrific Roncesvalles spot for dinner. Right across from the Revue Cinema. Excellent friendly service, great food, friendly atmosphere, nice wine and beer selection. I've never had a disappointing meal here.
Great place but noisy. Hard to hear you dinner friends if more than 4 people. We
I've been to The Westerley on a few occasions now, and I've always been pleased with the friendly service and food quality. Having said that, my last visit was rather disappointing. After being seated it took quite a while to be offered drinks and it became clear that there was only one server. This was the Sunday night of a long weekend. When the server did come over to take drink orders we were informed that there were going to be no mixed drinks due to lack of staff. First world problems I know. We all ordered drinks (beer and wine, not the end of the world) and food. The meal was just ok. My steak was good but the others that ordered burgers felt they were lacklustre compared to how they've been in the past. All in all it wasn't a terrible experience and I will go back to give it another chance because it's always been good in the past. This time though, left us all a little cold.
Recently booked a table for six for dinner. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
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.
