The Westerly Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Food was ok. Everything was served luke warm. My parmasan fries were served almost cold, creme brûlée was also warm on top and cold in the bottom. I had beef tartar for appetizer and it was too small (less than 1/4 cup worth of beef) and had seafood pasta for main and it was served Luke warm. They need to time the meals better and work on quality control so food will be served hot.
We went there for a birthday celebration, and the staff was phenomenal! They reserved us the best table and even put out flowers for the special occasion :).
Food-wise: I don't think I've had a more delicious soup in my entire life. Not just that, but the main course was heaven to my taste buds.
Will DEFINITELY go back, and have been recommending it to everyone I know!!!
We went for Mother's Day brunch and it was fantastic! The only thing is that the food took really long to come to the table after we ordered.
We were staying at a nearby B&B and had seen a favorable Open Table review. This was a great little neighborhood bistro. The menu has some interesting, creative offerings and it was a casual vibe with a neighborhood feel. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful as well.
Went to the Westerly as it was in the neighbourhood of a music recital my husband and I were going to. Very pleasant surprise! Good and service were very good. Wish we lived close by!
My husband and I went with another couple on Saturday night for dinner and drinks. The service is great, trendy vibe, food was very good as well (try the short rib entree, also charcuterie boards were good for sharing as an appetizer). My only note would be the wine list is not extensive. They could use a few more upscale reds. Overall we all enjoyed ourselves and would return.
Unfortunately I didn't enjoy my meal here. I have IBS and clarified the ingredients in my meal as I was ordering, but when the meal came it became clear to me that there were ingredients in the food that were not disclosed. I'll likely not return.
really good experience. service/ food . all solid. nice gem in the west end.
of note, tasty short ribs, creative soup special. new ale -St. Mary Axe (sp?)- excellent. will revisit to explore more of the menu
The Westerly is a neighborhood gem in Roncesvalles. I've been several times and always enjoy it - awesome atmosphere, delicious food, half price bottles of wine on Mondays, and down to earth & genuine staff. This week was an especially great experience. I was out for a dinner date with my partner on Monday evening, and our server (Derek?) was hilarious - really made our evening, so wanted to give a shout out there. Thanks again, Westerly, and we'll see you soon!
Great evening. Good server - attentive but not hovering. Fun pre-dinner cocktails. Reasonably priced. Would recommend.
Went to this pace for brunch last weekend and had the frittata. Really good food and I love that you have the option of having a French press on the table versus single coffees. The food was tasty but also seemed relatively healthy and the service was great.
Enjoyed a great meal and extraordinary service. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic cocktails at this wonderful local restaurant. The service is always amazing and the food tasty! A favourite of ours.
We often have dinner at The Westerly - it's our fav spot in the hood. But this was the first time I've had brunch. It was very good and I'll definitely do it again!
Thanks to Derrick and Bruce...had a lovely time at The Westerly. Service and food...and music were perfect. Highly recommended...just the right amount of finesse mixed with laid back casual. Thank you.
