Good ambience, place with decorate cool, beers several, great option for meet friends for game snooker. I ordered a poutine, but not was delicious, my friends asked Mac'n cheese e liked a lot! The service was a little slow, but nice.

C'est What has been a mainstay in Toronto for decades. I've seen it's evolution and it has retained it's cozy charm and excellent collection of beers and whiskeys with an ever expanding, high quality menu. Highly recommended if you want a fun and relaxing escape...for a few hours.More

Cellar bar and restaurant with cask beer, wide range of craft beers, and good which is different to the usual burger/pizza offering. Unique in Toronto.

Staff was super friendly and helpful, and the vibe was hip and happening. Great food, and multiple beers on offer. Excellent bang for your buck.

Just and old fashioned bar with pool tables. Really nothing more. The menu wasn’t even good bar food. The disappointment was the warm beer. We are a fan of icy brew. We ordered an appetizer with pickle veggies that were more just soaked in vinegar....The cheese was separated because the top was floating in oil. Not bad, but not good.More

Buzzing with activity and loads of great beer , friendly staff and good food ! A lovely place to chill out with friends or as a couple . It has quiet cozy spaces for two as well as lounging area for a group ! Well...designed with a pool table too ! We had their awesome nutty ale off the tap. And their ‘Lamburger’ is to die for !More

Visiting Toronto for the first time we had no idea where to go for dinner/drinks? It is, after all, the largest city in Canada! My wife choose this place as the menu was intriguing. We had just left the Cirque de Soleil show and decided...to stop in to C'est What? for some late nosh. It's a snug, subterranean pub with a great beer selection, excellent craft cocktails and a menu that can satisfy the pickiest of diners. Our server/bartender (unfortunately cannot remember his name) was top notch. He suggested some excellent beers for me and made a killer Old Fashioned for my wife. We enjoyed it immensely and would not hesitate to return if we are ever in Toronto again!More
