  • Everything about our experience at the Wine Bar was first-class, from the greeting we received from the hostess, to every bite we had to eat.

    We ended up sharing 4 different plates, all of which were superb. The highlight for us was the "poutine" with braised lamb and the pork belly with porky beans. The menu changes so often that you never know if what you had last time will still be there, but that's one of the pleasures of eating at this place.

  • Order: braised lamb poutine, pork belly and porky beans, chicken with yogurt, and grilled duck sandwich

  • I went there with one of my girlfriends last week and we had wonderful night. The food and service were great. The staff really seem to know their stuff. Our favourites were the local Pickerel and the Crispy Pork Belly.

    We went with the suggested wine pairings and they were spot on! We both love wine and tasted so many yummy wines that we had never even heard of before.

    Ask to speak with the Sommelier if he is around: most charming, eccentric and well-informed. It is a shame he is taken as we wanted to take him home with us :)

    The room was quite loud at times but it was very busy. The background music was most entertaining and not the usual boring garbage you hear in restaurants: At one point we both swear that the music from the Muppet's Swedish Chef was playing!

  • Order: Almost everything...!!! Poutine, Soup, Salad, Charcuterie, Smoked Whitefish, Pickerel, Lake Trout, Rabbit Stew, Entrecote of Beef, Pork Belly and some lovely cheese!

  • I thought the food was good, but it was not filing! I believe we already spent close to $70 per person and still hungry!! We actually went to the Wendy's.Tim Horton's down the street to fill up cuz we were still hungry! I've heard of tapas, but this was ridiculous. If there were bigger portions I would like it, or I didn't have to spend $200 to fill "adequately full". I think it would be a good SNACK or after a good meal. Then yes, this place has tasty nibblies.

  • Order: Yukon Gold Fries, Duck confit

  • We stop here for dinner everytime we're in Toronto (few times a year), most relaxing, tasty, friendly, anticipated meal. It's just so enjoyable and the food and options are wonderful. I wish I could visit every week to enjoy the menu variations!

  • Excellent service, server was extremely knowlegdeable, personable, attentive, friendly. We sat at the chef's bar and watched and chatted with the chef that night, Jeremy. He was quick, meticulous, knowledgeable and passionate about what he was cooking. Made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. Wine pairings with all courses an excellent choice, food was fantastic, fresh, innovative but simple. Will definitley be back!

  • Order: Poutine, Grilled flatbread with dips, Gnocchi, Entrecote of beef, Sausage with trotters, Artisanal cheese plate, Pot de creme

  • The portions are appetizer size and sharing is encouraged. Two of us shared 5 dishes for variety. Everything was excellent but the Yukon Gold poutine was particularly memorable. The wine pairings were excellent. Have your wine by the glass to match the various dishes.

    The service was good, considering that the place was completely full. Apparently they do not take reservations. When we arrived on a busy Saturday night we were told the wait would be about 45 minutes. They suggested we have a drink in one of the local bars and took our my phone number to call us when space became available. I thought that was a nice touch.

  • Order: Yukon Gold fries as lamb poutine Herbed crepe Duck confit Moroccan lamb stew with couscous Entrecote of beef
