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!

One of the best experiences I have had in a long time. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting. The food was beyond phenomenal, and we had the pleasure of sitting at the chef's table. This is our new go-to spot together. Thank you for such an amazing experience! We will definitely be seeing you again soon.

Great place for unconventional meals like game meat, homemade pasta, wild mushrooms, etc. I think I'll need to go 4 or 5 times before I'm please because all their food looks so good

We had a wonderful time during our meal and the food was amazing. Our waitress was lovely (I forget her name but she had a septum piercing/brown-curly hair) and she should be commended for her hospitality. We will be recommending this restaurant to others moving forward, and will definitely be back. We found about this restaurant through taking the chefs cooking class at the Royal Winter Fair. I think that was great marketing and a lot of fun. If possible, it would be lovely for the chef to run other cooking classes.

The food was absolutely phenomenal as always. It was a busy night being Valentine’s Day so we felt a little rushed towards the end however it was explained to us in advance that we only had a 2 hour seating. We will be back!

All around amazing experience I felt (and smelled) like I had gone on a hunting/ camping trip in a very excellent way. Even every plate that went by pur table smelled amazing. Smoking barrel cocktail went perfectly with the Bison steak. Generous portions, very impressed. Definitely going to go back next week for burgers ! Ontario should really update their laws around serving Ontario Venison - we're losing out as consumers and businesses. (my only critique was the music playlist was a little off balance - 90's hiphop, but that's personal preference)

Very accommodating regarding my reservation. Starters and Dessert were lovely but the mains stole the show! I had venison filet and it was cooked to absolute perfection! Everything about the plate was perfect. My partner had the black cod and also loved it. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful with explaining the menu. She also was very accommodating with helping me pick out mocktails (which were amazing). All in all a really lovely experience l with a great atmosphere, great service and great food!!

I have to say this was the best dinner I have ever had. From the minute I entered, comforting atmosphere, to the service, the wonderful wine, complementary champaign for celebrating our first anniversary... And the unforgettable dishes ! We had the wild boar spring rolls and venison to start then each did the phenomenal bison rib eye.. and the amazing dessert dishes. I honestly cannot stress enough how amazing this dinner was. We have agreed to make it a tradition to come here. Thank you for a memorable time. Everything was fresh and delicious.

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.
