I am a down to earth pub and restaurant patron. I was very happy to get a chance to visit this establishment, to choose from the selection of drinks, and to have a very good pizza. Friendly and accommodating staff, and a patio available.

Safari is a fun place for families, the kids can play pool or ping pong upstairs while parents sit on main floor or everyone can eat upstairs, same menu on both floors. Food is very good, better than bar food but not pretentious. We like...this place!More

The staff was very friendly and funny. The food was delicious. I had the Ribs - so tender and the mash potato was one of the best.

We recently returned to Safari which was our favourite local spot when we lived in the neighbourhood. The food is even better than it was!! The steak taco and seafood Alfredo pasta special were outstanding. Our server Ryan was very attentive and provided great service....Would highly recommend.More

Safari is our go to when with family, food is creative and high quality, prices are fair. Staff are friendly and make a point of getting to know the kids, nice touch. Seafood Pasta, Chicken Wrap, Pizza, Tribal Salad, Fish Wrap, Steaks, all delicious, nice...selection of beers on tap and wines by the glass. Kids love to play pool and table tennis upstairs, main floor is a cozy restaurant, big busy patio in summer months.More

Very nice place, I sat at the bar and the staff were welcoming and friendly, also accommodating as the bartender asked if I had a preference on what I would like to watch on the TV and even switched from the hockey game to basketball....Food was exceptional, I had fish, it was simply done, cooked perfectly and seasoned just right with a jalapeño/mango chutney that added a nice kick. The dining room filled up quickly and service looked smooth and confident, you can tell a lot about a place from perched at the bar, servers here were professional, manager was engaged and all over the place, greeting at the door, running food and checking on patrons. Overall, well ran, comfortable local, look forward to returning with friends.More

The food is fresh and delicious. Everyone one was helpful, but felt service was a bit slow at times. We were there on a Sat. at 6p.m. and it did get busier around 7. We had to ask another waiter to get us dessert menus....Also, I didn't know pool tables could be reserved. It would be great when booking your reservation if you are asked if you want to book a pool table. They should allow for reserving a few, not all. We were hoping to shoot some pool after dinner, but nothing was available.More

I’m not sure why but we live in the neighbourhood and had not been to Safari in years, my husband suggested for lunch and I am so glad he did. Food was delicious I had their Fish Tacos, they were really good served with side...of either fries or salad, I had the side salad which was fresh and tasty. My husband had their Arugala salad which he enjoyed and my dad had their Chicken Club sandwich served on a ciabatta bun he loved it. Beer choices were great and for desert we shared their Tartufo excellent, coffee was freshly ground. Will definitely be back..More
