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!

Covid limitations forced outdoor seating through no fault of the establishment. Apart from that, it was as perfect as ever.

This is my second time eating dinner here in one month. The food, the service, and the atmosphere created by the friendly and kind staff have made this a place I can't recommend often or highly enough.

If I was deaf but still appreciated good food this would have been an ideal restaurant. However I am not deaf, although I doubted my state at the end, this restaurant has amazing good food but that is totally eclipsed by the noise level to unacceptable levels.One who would appreciate such good food will unavoidably not frequent this restaurant on account of it excessive noise level. No more Antlers...sorry !

So glad Antler has been able to reopen with such a large, well-spaced-out patio. It never disappoints - the service is great and the food is beautifully prepared. Halfway through our mains, my friends started making plans to come back for another visit!

We had a fantastic anniversary dinner! It was our first dinner out in a long time and the service and food reminded us of how how much we have missed going out together. The heirloom tomato salad with whipped ricotta was our favorite appetizer!

We sat on the patio outside so we didn’t really get a sense of the atmosphere inside. I know it was a makeshift one, but we ended up having people in their cars staring at us when they were stopped at the red light. Service was awesome! Food was good. Presentation would have been better with a sprig of colour perhaps?

I have ate @ Antler a few times now. Food & service have always been great. We ate outside on the temporary patio & it was quite noisy (too much street / traffic noise). It was our choice to sit outside, as it was a great temperature outside but next time would eat inside.

The burger was really bad...really, really bad. I went for brunch and was also disappointed to learn there is no actual brunch menu anymore. Not only this, but there were so many bees around us! I am sad to say I won't be going back to this restaurant anymore.

Food was ok. Side of mushrooms was disappointing, needed something more to bring out the flavour. It was a boring preparation. Unimpressed by the parsnip puree (too sweet) that accompanied the venison as well as the polenta that went with the bison. The meats were prepared well but nothing special.

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.
