We've been to Beast a few times for brunch and dinner and we are always really happy with the service and the food. We really enjoy the nightly specials and the happy our oysters and drink deals! The food is always delicious and they offer such incredible choice. The service is friendly and they know their meal and drink information. We will definitely keep going to Beast.

Food was mind blowingly good. Best restaurant in Toronto.if the head chef is close friends with Anthony Bourdain, then it must be good eh?

There are only good things to say about Beast. Great relaxed atmosphere, genuine and 'real' friendly service, and incredible food. My girlfriend and I have 5 dishes - two biscuit sandwiches and 3 "small plates", and every single one made us pause to say "holy shit that's good". AND it's all at good prices. Stop thinking, don't doubt, just go and enjoy.

We enjoyed ourselves! The table we were seated at first sucked - cramped, next to the bar, under way too much AC. Outside was nice. Where are the mild veggie sides on the menu? individual plates were great, but overall food was too heavy / rich - and this is from a carnivore who came to a place named Beast on purpose.

Great mix of sharing plates and single dishes. We found the restaurant was a great low key, and relaxed place to catch up with old friends! Our server was awesome in recommending complimenting dishes, as we hadn't got to eat at the restaurant. Definitely will recommend this restaurant in the future.

Pros: The toffee pudding was to die for and the oysters were great. Very friendly staff. Cons: -Wish the $5/glass Beast120 menu wines were a better (red & white specially). You can get great bottles of wine at the LCBO fro $10-$15 so I don't see why this would be a problem. -Atmosphere leaves lots to be desired. Overall: Will return for oysters and pudding.

Great little spot off the hustle and bustle of King Street West. Came here for my fiances birthday. The menu was varied in the flavour profile of each dish which was really refreshing. Sharing plates but with many different flavours like Japanese, Mediterranean, French, and Canadian. We had the pickled veggies, warn olives, and bread which were all delicious. We also enjoyed the rapinni which was one of our favourites and the brussle sprouts which were cooked perfectly. We had the prawn as well and the cake it was on was delicious. For our final two dishes (yes, we ate a lot!) we had the ham hocks which were fabulously rich and tasty as well as the poutine. Although the poutine has been on the menu for six years (we were told), we weren't thrilled. Although not bad, it just wasn't has flavourful as all the other dishes and just fell short. One of my favourite parts of the meal is when our special made chocolate birthday cake came out. Rachelle, the pastry chef agreed to make a cake especially for my fiance since he really loves chocolate and there weren't any chocolate desserts on the menu. It was fabulously rich and moist and we enjoyed it for 2 days. We really enjoyed our meal, and the half priced bottles of wine (on Wednesday)!

The Beast was a fine dining choice for our family before a show at Second City. For dinner, expect tapas-style small plates to share. Portions were a bit small for four to share (2 older sons) but we made it work. While waitstaff recommended 3-4 dishes per guest, we did just fine with 9 for family of 4. Surprisingly, the boys enjoyed the smoked trout salad and pickled veggies the best.

Half-priced wine nights in Toronto's west end

Half-priced wine nights in Toronto's west end

Wednesdays at this spot draw Toronto wine lovers with half-priced bottles on offer from 5 pm to close. As its name would suggest, Beast is a destination for carnivores and those particularly partial to Canadian-style cooking. Finding home in the yuppie-in-the-best-way Trinity Niagara neighbourhood, it’s become a King Wester’s spot for happy hour cocktails with a side of house tartare or duck pastrami, or a selection of heartier dinner items like pork hocks, flat iron steak, or grilled lamb belly (but don’t miss out on the menu’s stellar selection of fish dishes on offer as well).
