My boyfriend and I were walking around Toronto hungry, and stumbled on this place around 9pm. We were seated quickly but weren't really impressed with the menu. We had the nachos for an app, which were quite good, a very hearty portion. Really actually too much for only two people. Boyfriend ordered the halibut and chips, which he found to be very dissapointing. For 16 bucks the fish was smaller than your palm with a handful of overcooked fries tossed in. I had the roast beef and yorkshire pudding. The pudding was overcooked, the beans were rubbery and the whole thing was soaked in less-than-appetizing gravy. Dont think we'll eat here again, hugely overpriced.
Decided to watch the UFC with a bunch of friends at the yonge and gerrard location, and was very disappointed with the food and experience. While the waiter was actually quite good and funny, everything else was a disaster.
I ordered the steak sandwich which is normally open faced, with sweet potato fries. I asked for a bun for the top, and for the steak to be well done, and add cheese and onions for $2 extra. The sandwich was already a hefty $13.50, plus the $2 for the add ons, and then $2.50 for the sweet potato fries. When I got the bill it was $20.34. That is a ridiculous price for a sandwich.
The steak wasnt well done, it was red in the middle. It was also a very small piece of steak for a $13.50 sandwich. A lot of fat on it as well. The cheese was very sparse, definitely not worth $2 extra. $20 for this crappy meal, not satisfied at all.
On top of that this place ordered the SD version of the UFC because it is $10 cheaper than the HD version. Then they stretched the program so it fit the screen. Why bother having all kinds of HDTV's and digital projectors if you are just going to cheap out on the cost of the HD PPV? Stretched SD images look awful on HDTV.
Wouldnt go back, or recommend anyone else going here ever.
Service did not get off to a good start; first, the hostess told us that only bar seating was available - except it really wasn't. We spotted a perfectly empty table in the dining area and started to park ourselves there until our server gave us some attitude but soon conceded when the hostess said something we couldn't hear. The food itself was fine, if only because it was past 11 pm and we were famished -- but nothing special. The burger was a little dry and I only got about 10-15 fries in my side. However, the portion of cod was a lot more generous. Our server was very attentive throughout the meal probably as a result of the earlier seating gaffe.
I have better memories of this place when I was here for a birthday dinner so it fell below my expectations for good pub food this time around.
