On a moderately busy Sunday afternoon in the Fall, I expect Jack Astors - a well-known chain of mid-level factory food joints in Toronto - to at least meet its basic standard of service and food quality. It did not. Despite the restaurant being half empty, the reception staff still tried to seat my partner and me at the bar.... More

Most definitely my favourite bar. Great selection of drinks and food. Amazing atmosphere and lovely staff. Always lots of sport on the numerous TVs, including a very large one behind the bar. Went numerous times during the 2 weeks I was there this year and never regretted it once. Went for meals and just for drinks.

I was in Toronto for business and heard that this restaurant was good. I went for dinner and had guacamole as an appetizer. Worst guac I have ever had. Them I had a bacon cheeseburger for dinner. Terrible burger! Service wasn't the best either. Lots of better restaurants around this location.

Visited several times during our stay in Toronto. The food is always good (perhaps a bit limited for vegetarians, but I'm not normally adventurous with menus anyway.) Our servers have always been friendly. In particular, the bartender recognised us from our visit an entire year ago and was lovely to talk to. Definitely recommend.

I've been to the Jack's on Front many times and had excellent food. This time we went to the St. Lawrence Market location. I ordered the fish and chips. When the waiter brought the place there was a massive piece of fish and I thought "wow this is great". Unfortunately I was soon disappointed to learn that there was a... More

My girlfriend and I went to Jack Astor's on the Civic Holiday in August. The entire experience was pretty forgettable. Arrived at the restaurant to be greeted by nobody at the host station by the front door. Waited for a couple of minutes and then a disinterested server walked by, ignoring us. I asked if we could get a seat.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
