Average service, minimal dish presentation, exceptional food in a home environment. Keep changing up your menu every week, but nothing else. Thanks.

Comfortable, non-pretentious atmosphere. Attentive, helpful service. Creative, diverse menu. Nicely-presented dishes without being overly 'artsy' or 'fussy'. (I love a chef who relies more on flavour than plating...and the flavours were great.) Also impressed by the value-oriented "120" menu, $5 cocktails and half-priced wine. We were only a party of three and couldn't try everything on the menu that attracted us...so will definitely return. If we lived in the neighbourhood, I suspect we'd come here often.

Beast was lovely in accommodating my husband and I on short notice for a meal celebrating his 60th birthday, and we couldn't have enjoyed a more perfect evening. The room: intimate... and audible! (So sick of having to shout and mime to dinner companions mere feet away due to crushing noise levels in restaurants lately.) The service: friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. We asked a number of questions, and each answer steered us in exactly the right direction. And, best of all, the food...! Simple -- and highly creative, at the same time. And clearly the work of a kitchen that respects every ingredient on every plate. A meal out can be a significant investment to many, these days. In our case, this was one that paid off -- and then some -- on every level. We'll be returning -- AND recommending Beast to others.

I’ve been waiting a long time to visit Toronto and taste some of Scott’s masterpieces. We were not disappointed. Innovative food menu, great craft beer choices and knowledgeable and friendly staff. Atmosphere was fun and casual. Make sure you order the bone marrow and finish with the marrow shot! Much love from Winnipeg.

This restaurant was soooooo much better than i could have ever expected it to be. The ambiance is PERFECT, food is honestly probably the best food my husband and i have ever had at a restaurant. The ONLY reason i did not give the food a 5 is because the pasta dish we ordered, the pasta was under cooked. However, they did give us the dessert on the house for that. If not for the pasta i would give the food a 5 because it is out of this world! The flavours are so unique, the meat is succulent, i really could go on and on about how amazing this place is.

Expectations exceeded. Inviting, relaxed atmosphere. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Background music was just that so it was easy to have a conversation at the table. Service was friendly and efficient. Our table shared a number of starters and entrees. Drinks and food were delivered quickly from the kitchen. Unexpected bonus was that it was Buck-a-shuck oyster time when we arrived. We will definitely be back.

We were very excited to come for dinner. Unfortunately the signature meat dishes were almost inedible. The mussels were good but couldn’t save the meal on their own. I love coming here for brunch and am not sure how to feel after this experience.

The food here is incredible. First time here for dinner, usually come for their brunch (favourite in the city, but bring an appetite). Highly recommended if you like meat forward dishes. Also, bread is incredible.

This was a first time visit for me and my friends. Our server was very helpful to gauge our dish selection as we weren’t sure about the portion sizes being a tapas style shared among 5 guys. And the food...oh lord the food was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be back! Thank you for the wonderful dinner!

Food was great, but we were a group of 8 and the restaurant was busy, so the service was SUPER slow. We ordered a few appetizers and it took about an hour to be brought out. I think the staff may have forgotten about our burrata appetizer because it wasn't until I asked about it that they brought it out. The mains took over an hour and a half, maybe close to 2 hours, to come out. There were only 2 wait staff and 2 cooks in a tiny kitchen, so it's not an ideal place for large groups. The dessert (sticky toffee pudding) came very quickly after we ordered it and it was delicious.

The Beast is known for its use of every animal part, so it should be no surprise that Crispy Pig Ears are on the menu, specifically on the snack menu. Deep fried and delicious, it’s a delicacy that has become very popular at the King West restaurant. If you can get past the description, it is a must-try outrageous snack!
