We came here after the restaurant next door provided terrible service.

The service was very good as the atmosphere was friendly, professional and personable. They have a lot of options to choose from on their menu, which made things difficult to pick.
We ate their Mac and cheese balls which we found to be the best thing during our meal. Their main courses such as the chicken Parmesan was very bland but their penne bolognese pasta was very good.

I would definitely return and try something different, but I wouldn’t eat their chicken Parmesan again.

Come here on martini night with your friends! They go down easy and their pizzas go great with them. Very reasonably priced, great if you're looking for a pre or post show beverage!

Visiting Toronto and we were walking along King St looking for a brunch place before our marine of ‘Come From Away’ at the Royal Alexander. Looked over the menu in the window and saw lots of choices. We were quickly seated and served coffee and water. Hubby said coffee was really good. He had the 3 egg omelette with onion, roasted red peppers & bacon. I had the Lumberjack with 3 eggs, farmers sausage, bacon and French toast. All meals come with greens, toast & home fries as well. Everything was delicious!!! The service was great and attentive. Definitely will return and highly recommend !!

Martini specials all day until 5pm and ALL DAY on Wednesdays. Sign me up!

Hey Lucy is a great place to have a boozy after-work chill out, while contemplating what drink to have next.

The bar gets busier later into the evening (post 7pm) and on days when there are major theatre productions in full swing.

The summer is also more fun for the upstairs, outdoor patio.

Staff is always warm and welcoming.

Drinks, yum.

Food is OK but skews to pizza and pasta, which is pretty 1995, and also a bit heavy for the diets of 2018. Menu rethink would be a serious plus as this bar is great, and could only do better with great food.

Cocktail Wednesdays are of course a great feature of this restaurant/bar, but that is accentuated by friendly and attentive service.

The downside is that the food selection is, at best, mediocre. The speed of service is pleasing. However, I do think that there is plenty more work that needs to be done to ensure the menu is fit for purpose.
