    Hidden gem on the danforth!

    My friends and I went to Factory Girl last night for our monthly get together and we were so impressed with everything! Normally I don't write online reviews-- but I had to share how wonderful the service, food and experience was! We had this adorable waitress who suggested we try any of the pizzas or pastas. We shared a bruschetta pizza appetizer, which was devoured instantly. I had the Ravioli and a glass of Pinot Noir as my main and have been dreaming of it all day. Could not recommend it enough!

    Oct 19 dinner with friends

    I had the porto chicken, one of my friends had pizza, the other pasta. We were all really happy. The garlic linguine I ordered on the side was really good and garlicky. Pretty good service - can't wait to go back. The menu is nice and varied so you don't need to be in the mood for pasta or pizza. Great place.

    Delicious!!!!!!

    What a great experience! Our meals were delicious and well presented. The calamari and bruschetta pizza were great starter choices. My daughter and I chose pasta dishes, and my husband had the tilapia. We shared a chocolate mousse for desert. Again, delicious!!!!!! I have to say that I was impressed by the vintage decor. Simple yet well stated. As we are in walking distance to Factory Girl, we will be walking there on a regular basis.

    Just What The Danforth Needed!!

    Went to Factory Girl with my wife for the first time this past Friday night. We only went for a drink with plans to go somewhere else for dinner. The name threw me off a bit and I didn't want to take a chance eating at a place I figured was a bar and not a restaurant. When we got there we sat at the bar and were greeted very warmly by the bartender. We noticed other peoples plates around the bar and the food looked good. The bartender made it clear that that she loved the food at her new job and that the calamari was the best in Toronto. Long story short we ate and the food was excellent. The restaurant has a very warm feel to it. I will return with friends.

    Although the cocktails were a little on the pricey side ($11- $14) the rest of our experience made up for it. Food was great with large portions. Our server was very friendly and helpful (even asking other staff about the area for a recommendation of something we were looking for) and never making us feel rushed. Would definitely return to this place.

    Met for a bite with my sister-in-law, really enjoyed ourselves. Service was prompt and friendly and for us gluten free folks, there were options. I thoroughly enjoyed my tomato cream vodka pasta and the arugula salad was fab. Looking forward to coming back here to try the brunch menu,. Cheers

    We only had time to order the signature Calamari App, it was good, but service was so slow we didn't have time to order a meal before our show!! It felt like the wait staff actually forgot about us...not a great feeling, I don't think we will back anytime soon.

    I love Factory Girl! It was our first trip there and certainly not the last. Great sized pub with a good atmosphere and a warm welcome. Our server was fantastic - amiable, knowledgeable and helpful without any pushiness or any other negatives. The drinks were wide ranging, ice cold and delicious - and the food - let me just say calamari and wood fired pizza oven! A great night before a concert at Danforth Music Hall just down the street!

    For a gastropub, the food selection isn't very extensive. Basically it was pizza, pasta or chicken. Everyone in our party had one of each and based on each person's comments it may be a good thing as they seem to do it well. The one negative food comment was relatively minor and it was about the fettuccine. One of the people in our party had the fettuccine curry and felt the pasta wasn't drained enough as the pasta sat in a pool of water at the bottom of the bowl. There server was very attentive and responded very quickly to our requests. Maybe because it wasn't particularly busy, even though it was Mother's Day. But I'll give the server the benefit of the doubt. Small but nice selection of beers on tap ranging from small craft beer to the standard imports. Didn't see any Coors, thank goodness. Wine - $2 corkage after 4pm Sundays. Great deal. If I had known I would brought my own wines. I've been here once before but only remember that we were only there for drinks at the bar. We only came here this time for Mother's Day dinner, admittedly because I couldn't get into my first choice. However, having now eaten here I would definitely come back.

    Factory Girl has yet to disappoint (whew!). This was my fourth visit in two months. Overy these visits I've introduced 10 people to FG... everyone has enjoyed everything. The beer menu is limited (on draft) but decently curated. I think the tequila menu may be looking get than the wine by the glass :-) For food, you can't go wrong with... anything we've tried so far! Seriously my now favourite Danforth restaurant. Go!!!

    This back patio just east of the Danforth despite not being near water, has the feel of being on the lake. Drenched in sunshine, you can catch some rays while digging into their fantastic Roma style pizza. Go with the Margherita if you want classic. Of course, there is much more to the menu. Fresh pastas and salads are fantastic too. And a hearty wine and drinks list means you’ll want to extend your stay just a little longer.

    Ontario craft beer tastes fine enough on its own but when you pair it with a tray of prime rib sliders, it goes down even better. And, instead of adding regular fries on the side, opt for sweet potato for extra deliciousness. If you’re really famished, try the six oz burger topped with cheddar and bacon and a side of red wine gravy poutine. Move your food to the patio for a great dining experience.
