Nice ambiance, fast and friendly service, a conventional menu - nothing out of the ordinary, food is not bad but nothing special. If you are in the area, it is a decent option, but I wouldn't make a specific effort to dine here.

We were in the area, and choose this restaurant based on the reviews. Service was good, prompt and friendly. Atmosphere was pleasant, however, we were rather disappointed with our main course. We started with a couple of salads, the iceberg and the kale. The Iceberg...More

Location is close to the centre of everything in downtown. Warm lighting and wooden tables. Service is prompt and efficient. Food quality is very good. Good value in by-the-glass wine list. Prices are fair. Recommended.

We sat here for a few hours on Thanksgiving. The burgers were about as good as burgers gets, and the complimentary home made hummus to start was first class. Coffee was thrown in on the house. Thoroughly recommend this place...I will certainly eat here again.

Dined here with my wife last night and received excellent service and superb food. My wife had the burger and I had the pork chop which both sounded fairly basic but both were brilliant.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

It was some time ago I went but I recall that there were plant based options. Also, I found them so helpful that I would ask them to modify some of the meat based options

There is no children's menu as far as I know. I would take my four grandchildren but they are accustomed to dining in upscale restaurants and are all over 11 years of age.
