My best friend and I went to O’gradys this weekend for my birthday. Our waiter was Tim and he was AMAZING. He had great suggestions, and was able to have great conversations with us. Honestly the best server I’ve had anywhere in a long time!!!

Disabled community and others not "from" Toronto beware. I arrived at 7:30pm on a Sunday and simply asked if I could have a table for one. I explained that I did not see well and that my cell phone was not working properly. I was...wearing dark glasses and a L'Acadie baseball cap & France t-shirt in honour of National Acadian Day. Rather than showing me to a table with a menu, the host simply kept holding a clipboard in my face with what looked like a QR code on it, so I fumbled for my phone and tried to do what he was asking, but he became irritated with me. I told him I just needed a little help but couldn't be at a place like this, and he said, "that's totally fine." He either hates disabled people, Francophones, solo diners or maybe all of these - three strikes this place is out. I went down the street to Hair of the Dog and had the completely opposite experience - welcoming, caring, and attentive.More

The doorman (who also claimed to be "the "manager") is very rude and thinks he is king of universe, he never listens to clients. He was a disgusting man in general: he doesn't mind arguing with customers for no reason and even dropping f** word...to them. The most of their servers are sassy, unprofessionally flirty and arrogant. But there a few good servers too. The place is overrated: too expensive, bad food, bad service, and the only good reason people go their is bar's convenient location. We were a group of friends and when we said we'll leave a bad review if he doesn't change his tone, the doorman said he doesn't give a damn (and he claimed to be the "manager"). I wouldn't recommend this place! Outrageous behavior and very bad service! If I could give a 0-star, I would here.More

I have been coming here for years! This place is amazing, the service is always amazing, the staff is super friendly and the food is always fresh and delicious. They have great COVID safety protocols in place and enforce them which made me feel safe...every single time I visited. Even if you can’t come and stay I recommend ordering take out! They have free local delivery and your food gets to you quickly, hot and fresh. They even have liquor and beer to go! I highly recommend this place, it is a staple in the village and a safe space for everyone. If you are looking for a safe place with great food and drinks O’Gradys on Church should be your #1 choice.More

My husband and I have been coming to and ordering from O'Grady's for many years. Their food is always fresh and delicious and their staff is super friendly and fun. During Covid times this place has gone above and beyond. When we came in to...pick up a take out order recently we were welcomed to a little store inside the restaurant full of goodies like candy, chips, cocktail kits, etc. that they offer in addition to their regular menu and specials. They are super diligent about Covid safety protocols and offer free delivery done by their own amazing staff. We also ordered Valentine's Day dinner here this year and our scrumptious meal and a bottle of wine was delivered by their employee Antonio who was dressed up as a cupid! How adorable is that? Their burgers are probably the best in Toronto in our opinion. We have them almost every week. It's a definite must try. And I personally love their dessert selection, my favorite being their Peanut butter brownie cheesecake. If you have a chance to visit, want to support an amazing local business and like delicious food and awesome people, we highly recommend O'Grady's. We will remain loyal customers for many years to come.More

The food here is incredible, was lucky enough to enjoy the patio while they were open in March. I had the Fish and Chips, it was a good portion, crispy and fresh. My partner had the Steak Stir Fry, again, a big portion with lots...of veggies and steak. Will definitely be back when they can reopen again.More

O'Grady's has long been our "go-to" place because they have the best patio in The Village. The staff is very friendly and the food is really good. With the whole COVID-19 thing, we've been ordering from them a couple of times every month. I call...them directly and place my order, and if I can't pop over to pick it up they deliver it quickly with no delivery charge. A few times the owner himself (Jimmy) made the delivery just to make sure we didn't need to wait too long. Highly recommended!More

I just enjoyed a lovely take away meal from this fine establishment. They take lots of pride in the quality of their food, packaging and presentation. Lots of safety measures in place for Covid. Highly recommended.

Popped in for Buffalo wings, flavor is very good and the owner was nice and cool. Even though the restaurant is take out only during COVID, the place was intricately decorated

My partner and I went for a late lunch on Sat, Nov 7. Only patios are open due to COVID and it was a nice weather day. I ordered eggs benny - classic with Peameal bacon. I asked the server to pass on a message...to the chef that the Peameal was not Peameal but in fact thinly slice pork loin. She came back and said the chef said it was Peameal. I know Peameal - it is not grey in colour like pork. It's sad O'Gradys are trying to trick customers to make a better profit margin (pork loin is cheaper than pea meal). Further, my partner had deep fried pickles of which three were burnt. Also, they are price gouging on their small glasses of beer. I use to go to O'Grady's in the past - but will now never return. i mentioned my experience to friends on the weekend and they concurred with the experience I had - they have only been going out of desperation due to COVID and there being a large patio.More
