Dined here yesterday for dinner - the atmosphere was very trendy, gave off a cottage/winter vibe. The menu is simply outstanding, lots of delicious choices to choose from. We opted for wild boar spring rolls, bread + duck confit for our appetizers. Absolutely delicious. For the mains we tried the Game Burger with fries, Roasted Duck and Eggplant puree, and the Wild Mushroom rissotto. The burger was the best pick, not as gamy as we thought it might be, the duck egg aioli was the perfect touch.

I wrote a review in October 17 (Kerri) after having a near miss allergy experience. I would like to append this review. I just got off the phone with a representative from Antler who called me to discuss the incident & make sure I was ok. He interrogated the staff to figure out what went wrong - they already had an allergy protocol in place and he figured out what went wrong and has modified the policy to ensure the safety of their allergic patrons. I am considering giving Antler another chance!

When making and confirming the reservation we had we were not told there was a time limit on the table. We had planned to spend our whole evening here so when we got told they needed the table in an hour and we weren’t even half way through our appetizers we were very put off. But half an hour later they were asking us if we wanted another bottle of wine and when we left there were multiple empty tables but we were not going to spend any further time at the restaurant as we did not feel welcome. Shame, dinner was delicious. Service was terrible.

Great vibe and menu. Enjoyed sitting at the bar watch Derek making excellent cocktails. Had a small problem with one dish and we barely complained; they removed the entire $45 from the bill. Will return for sure.

Second time at Antler and similar to the first time it was excellent. Friendly service and absolutely amazing food. Only thing I will say is that it’s soooo cold close to the door so be sure to call ahead and get a table away from that area

We were visiting from Chicago and couldn't be happier with our choice to dine here. Very small/intimate space which allows for plenty of attention from the waitstaff. Delicious cocktails and fantastic food! The venison tartare was awesome, the pasta was fabulous, and the boar chop on special was sooo good. Even the smoked mousse dessert was great. We will definitely be back the next time we return to Toronto.

Its great food. A special night for my partner. We hoped to talk and enjoy our meal in a pleasant setting, but loud abrasive rap music was being played throughout our meal. I listen to hip hop, but this definitely seemed out of place and did not compliment the meal, or create a warm, intimate atmosphere. I hope you pay closer attention to the atmosphere you are trying to create.

With a last name like Hunter, it seems as though owner and chef Michael Hunter was destined to open Antler. The restaurant celebrates regional ingredients, which are present all throughout the seasonal menu, and they even make an appearance in the cocktails, which are made with Antler’s own natural infusions and syrups. With freshly foraged ingredients in hand, Hunter aims to define Canadian cuisine at Antler.

Jamaican venison patty: It may look like a snack food, but it's as important as any expert entree. Slipped into a white paper sleeve with the Antler logo stamped on the front (nice touch), it’s the best version of any meat patty I can recall. The house made dough is so fine it's almost translucent, making it easy to see the mound of ground meat within with as much flavour as a well-simmered stew. And the delicately spicy dipping sauce with scotch bonnet is not blow-your-head-off hot thanks to being blended mostly with red peppers. Make no mistake: this is not the meat patty you're used to seeing under a heat lamp at the corner convenience store.

One of the most recent openings, Antler has illustrated that game doesn’t have to be heavy or gamey or boring. This is your chance to dig into rabbit, deer, bison, boar and venison, all done with elegance and refinement. Swoon.
