First time there and unfortunately won't be in a hurry to go back. Very everyday sausage and eggs....similar to any greasy spoon but more expensive and not as good. Forocca sounds good on the menu but a real miss...just a dry piece of bread. Heinz ketchup in a porcelain dish that should be reserved for something better i.e homemade...very pretentious!... More

Ate at the Westerly a few weeks ago. Had been looking forward to it as Tom has always run a restaurant where you could be guaranteed absolutely wonderful food. Well, he's no longer there (I'm not certain if he sold the place and it has a new owner perhaps as our waiter didn't seem to know?) but the food was... More

Out to celebrate a friend's birthday. Wanted to try a restaurant we hadn't been to before. Had a great time! We all enjoyed our meals. Great server and service. Bonus was the Monday night wine special.

Somehow our reservation didn't make it into the Westerly's 'book'…but they were totally accommodating and took great care of our group by seating us in the 'east room'…a private room in the back of the restaurant. It was perfect….as was the food and the service. Cannot say enough good things about the Westerly….other than it is now one of our... More

Loved the neighbourhood, loved the ambiance inside the restaurant. Once seated, had to wait 10 minutes for one of the 3 waitresses to offer us something to drink and another 25 minutes to take our order, and another 40 minutes to get our food. We shared our frustration but didn't seem to care much. The egg Benedict, French toasts, vegan... More

Had Dinner with another couple on a Tuesday night at 7:00 pm Comfortable seating areas, with combination of chairs and benches High naked walls (without artwork) contributed to a noisy environment. Some background music made it worst as the place filled up and people talked louder.. and louder.. Waitress was new to Canada from England, was pleasant, but not experienced... More

The Westerly offers a discerning spin on classics, and brunch is a fine occasion to sample the refinements in the high-ceilinged, airy dining room. Restraint is an admirable quality; perhaps taken a bit far here. Such as the divine, tiny, cappuccino that seemed half-sized to my caffeine receptors and tastebuds. Eggs Benedict is served on a plump flaky cheddar biscuit... More

Three of us enjoyed a marvelous dinner here on July 13th . Menu offerings are creatively prepared with unusual combinations of ingredients and beautifully presented , both drinks and food.

Dined here about two years ago with my grown daughters, and returned this past Saturday with close friends. First time was very good and this time also. The menu has changed but there is something here for all. The smallish menu makes it easy to choose. Burger, fish, pasta, salads, and fowl. All well prepared and served. I will not... More

Menu is pretty broad with something for everyone. We had brussel sprouts, prawns and scallops for appetizers. For the mains, I had the cheesburger and the wife had the sable fish. All the dishes were well prepared. Desert was also impressive. Overall, this place is worth coming back to.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
