My husband and I went to the original Pickle Barrel restaurant on Leslie Street for lunch yesterday. The food was horrible. We had such fond memories of this restaurant from many years ago and were so looking forward to it....but what a HUGE disappointment. The meatloaf was the worst mess! Looked like it had been reheated on the grill and... More

I have been to the Pickle Barrel many times and have never been disappointed. They have lots to choose on their menu so even the most picky eater can find something. They have a great breakfast special . I love their salads and pasta dishes.

The food (breakfast) was mediocre and the service was appalling. It took 10 minutes to get a waiter to come and ask if we wanted drinks. It took another 10 mins to take our order. The coffee was so weak it was undrinkable. Food arrived after about 20 mins, toast was cold. Asked for hot toast - it came 15... More

We went a couple of nights ago (me, my wife, and 3 kids) to have a mid-week dinner. We were seated very quickly (there was no wait) and our waiter came by very soon to take our drink orders and then our food. The food was slow to arrive - in spite of the restaurant being empty - and when... More

This isn't a review of the restaurant but rather one of the servers, an elderly Chinese gentleman named Derek. We always make sure we're seated in his section because he's friendly, funny and very efficient. Regulars will know him because he's been there for years and is the only thing the place has going for it. Otherwise, it's okay food,... More

I work nearby and this is one of our "go to" places for a great meal. The choices are endless, and everything is extremely good. Been going here for years and never had a bad meal. High quality, fresh ingredients. Great deli food of course, and I like the Rose Reismann menu for healthy eating. Prices are very good for... More

Great menu, and food when you get it is pretty good. Service, just appalling, very slow, servers cannot cope. Nice guy, but well, bluntly, time to retire. First week of new credit card machines, say no more. No sign of any managers, no sign of senior mgt, staff turnover very high, little training, etc etc... why bother. Clearly a sign... More

We were taken to a table that was not ready. The dirty dishes were in a tray left on the table. The greeter took the tray again and put the menus and cutlery sets on the table. This was so obvious that the table was dirty and not wiped. We were quite upset with this. I went out and told... More

Always a great place to eat.. The early bird breakfast special is a great deal $4.99 until 10:30 am. A favourite location when we go out with the family. Something on the menu for everyone...
