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!

It’s my second time at Antler, I always recommend cause I really like it. It’s a great place have amazing food. The only thing I want to share is, this second time we got offered between still or sparkling water which I was surprised because usually everywhere we are charged for sparkling water, and we never got told it wasn’t free. So when we got the bill the charge was there for 9 bucks for 3 glasses. Not sure if that’s usual or the server forgot to mention that to us. Anyways I love Antler and i’ll Definitely come back soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Antler. The servers were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. It was our first time having any kind of game dishes and each one was great. The wild boar chop in particular, was outstanding!! If we lived in Canada, we’d certainly be back again. Be sure to make a reservation, as the restaurant is small and does fill up.

Service was outstanding! Food was excellent as was the atmosphere. Sitting in front of the entrance and front window kind of took away from some of the ambiance for a romantic evening. Perhaps the atmosphere would have felt a little different sitting further into the restaurant but the night was excellent all around regardless.

Hi My son and I came to Antler for an early dinner service on August 14. The food (burger with Foie gras and stuffed rabbit) and the cocktails were amazing. As was the dessert (Maple Bacon Glazed Crueller). We will be back.

Everything was delicious! I came to support the business because I saw the vegan protesters a while back on YouTube & then heard on the JRE podcast about it & felt it was appropriate to come in during my camping trip across Canada. The food & service didn’t disappoint, I’ll be back next chance I get!

The food was delicious and the service impeccable! The restaurant is small and unfortunately we were seated close to the door which made for a slightly less intimate atmosphere than we had hoped. But regardless of where you are seated, the servers were all super attentive. Definitely would visit again!

Food was amazing. Service was decent but not very understanding of the environment and how uncomfortably warm it was. Someone had turned on the AC unit but had not put the hose in the window to push the hot air out. The hot air remained in the area for a long time even after being shut off. Finally, we were told before even coming that a window seat had a nicer view than the bar. It was a terrible view.

Love this place! We came here for a casual Friday night dinner and our expectations were blown out of the water. Service was on point and everyone on staff was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious and there were great options for both vegetarians and meat eaters. The pheasant yakitori was A++ and the jalapeno infused mezcal cocktail (I think it was called Spice Plane) was by far the best cocktail I've had in the city. Will definitely be coming back soon.

Amazing!! This was our first visit and it will definitely be our new go to place! We were very impressed with the food, the service and the restaurant itself! 110% recommend! We sat at the chefs table and it was such an amazing experience and we will definitely be booking that table again for sure! Overall we had a spectacular night and we wouldn’t change a thing! Can’t wait to go back!

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.
