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!

We had such a great time at Antler! The service was attentive and the food was unbelievable - I can't stop thinking about the venison! Thank you for a wonderful evening :)

This is our third visit to the restaurant. The food is excellent but the service disappointing. We were continuously rushed to order, then asked to leave as our table was required for another reservation. Two hours is too short for a Friday dinner reservation. ...We will reconsider future bookings.

My Wife and I had a wonderful time dining here for our fifth wedding anniversary. The food was excellent. As avid hunters we really appreciated the way the meals were prepared with great ingredients. We will be coming back soon.

Thank you so much for a fantastic culinary experience. I took my father visiting from France as he is a very demanding customer, and he liked it so much that he asked that I make another reservation before he goes back home. The venison was delicious, the rabbit was OUTSTANDING, and the bison was also of superior quality. Our waiter was great and gave just the right advice for the crowd. Thanks and we'll be back very soon!

20 min between appetizers and main course wait. 20 min wait for table reservation outside on the sidewalk as there was no room in the restaurant to wait or have a drink at bar. It was garbage day.

I never knew this restaurant ever existed. The main reason for choosing this restaurant: 1) it was our daughters 25th Birthday. 2) We enjoy game 3)The protest we drove by a year or so ago intrigued me to find out more. I’m glad I did. The servers were pleasant and very attentive. We ordered the large charcuterie board and everything on it was delicious (the gherkins may have had better days). The server explained what was on the board. Delicious! We all had something different as our main meal and everything was delicious. The surprise cedar infused sorbet with the candle and a quick ‘happy birthday‘ song rounded out a perfect evening. Take my advise and book your date as early as possible. I was looking for a 6:30 seating, but nothing available for two weeks. It is small, but the service and food was impeccable. Everyone I told is looking into going soon. We will be going back.

Came from the SF Bay Area as I had heard such fabulous recommendations when doing research online and was so amazed at the food! Especially since there's a ban on Foie Gras! That was an amazing and generous portion that satisfied my craving! It was so perfectly prepared and the venison tartare and the rabbit. The cocktails were delicious and the service and staff were friendly. One of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. Definitely the best meal I had in Toronto. Highly recommended!

My husband and I went for dinner at Antler for our first anniversary and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. The food was incredible, but the whole walk home we couldn't stop commenting on how attentive and accommodating the staff were. From the moment we stepped through the door until the moment we left the service was impeccable. We had a great experience and have recommended it to all our foodie friends.

We made our reservation a week in advance and arrived on time for our reservation. Even though there were tables available they sat us at the bar. We made a reservation for a table for two...not the bar. The bar was loud and not what you would want for a date night. Just beware a reservation does not mean you will be seated at a table. We had an appetizer and left. I think this is very deceiving and they should have a disclaimer that they do not guarantee a table.

The chefs table made the experience hat much more incredible, the kitchen staff were amazing, friendly, they even let me take a selfie with them in the background which was my highlight of the night. The service was brilliant, I found my self ordering 6 things at once but it was brought out and made to order as I finished plate for plate so as not to overwhelm. Deff comming back, as much as I can. Worth EVERY penny spent. No regrets Such a wounderfull night, my wife and I were floored by how brilliant the food was. The detail that went into and as a foodie by hobbie I’m amazed at the work that goes into that ever changing menu. Best dining experience ever.

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.

Top 10 dishes of 2015

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.
