Great food, awesome 80's music and staff that care. Really enjoyed my time here. It is also one of the few reasonable options near the trendy Queen West.

Yes worth the half hour wait. The eggs benny were fantastic, the fried pickles are cut like chips and were very good, the gnocchi poutine was delicious. And you must have the donuts very good.

Food was delicious but not unique. It was my first time in Toronto and the high reviews brought me here. The first thing I noticed was the place is very small. There was no inside waiting area, so my group along with other guests had...More

When you read their slogan "serving the best food in Toronto" - you are already going in with skepticism. That's a big claim. Small location with an intimate setting and for the type of food you are getting, accordingly priced. The lamb ribs are so...More

Beast is a hidden gem in a sea of over-priced, pompous restaurants on King St West. The food is creative, delicious and surprisingly well-priced. It's a refreshing departure from the King West prototype. A couple things to know: 1. It is small. If you're not...More

4 of us went for brunch on Saturday and had an amazing time. Our server Aline made the experience even better and certainly gave us a few chuckles. From the donuts, pollo loco sandy, French toast with duck confit, and two different Benny's on biscuits,...More

The food was really good, compliments to the chef. However for the price we paid for each dish we felt we should have got a little more. Accept that they are aiming for tapas type food but they should price the plates as tapas not...More

I can't believe this place is rated highly. The service was horrible, definitely not kid friendly and the potatoes were stale. We called ahead and we're told we'd have a table within 20mins and ended up waiting 1.5 hours. The wait staff are pretty useless...More

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,

funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
