I made a reservation without knowing the restaurant, because of its proximity to a event we were attending earlier tonight. I’m very glad I did. The food was excellent. A perfect menu for a cold night. Short ribs with polenta, porchetta as an appetizer. Excellent. The service was very attentive. This is a gem. My husband has a group of friends that meet once a month for dinners in the city. All of the men are Italian. When it is my husbands turn to host a dinner, he will be glad to bring them all here. Thank you. More

We dined at 5:30 pm on a Friday prior to theatre. The restaurant was not busy which meant noise levels were low and service attentive. 1/2 price bottles of wine on Fridays is a very nice perk. We really enjoyed the food. We split a grilled shrimp with crab cake app. Our entrees were blackened rainbow trout and wild boar tenderloin. Both were very good. Desserts are not made on site but they were tasty. The restaurant is quite close to the theatres on King St, but being on a side street and in a hotel lobby (St Germain Mercer St) , it is a relaxing locale away from the bustle of King St. The decor of the restaurant was thoughtful and I really enjoyed having an easy conversation without the high noise levels present in a lot of restaurants.

Gastro Pub | Downtown / Entertainment District, Toronto

I made a reservation for lunch for 13 people on a Tuesday and it was a great experience. Our server was very comfortable and provided recommendations ranging from different beverages (specifically from the long list of beers) to what food was gluten-free or vegan. It was quiet given it was the middle of the week which worked in our favour as our party was large and probably making most of the noise. Booking was seamless and the staff also kindly took our photo requests with patience. Everyone had a great time and I would definitely recommend going again for another work lunch or after hours drinking session. More
