    Had the poutine (fried gnocchi with sturgeon bolognese sauce) which is so good I can have it all. Also had the beastwich which is a beast! It is huge and very rich so be prepared.

    Did the tasting menu and picked duck. Unique in the sense that they create a customized course just for you using every part of the animal (depending on how adventurous you are).

    5 Stars - The Duck Confit French Toast was amazing I recommend washing it down with a Perfect Storm (rum, home made ginger beer & lime juice).

    Don't pass up the Beastwich, a towering monster of a sandwich featuring buttermilk biscuits, fried chicken, pimento cheese, and egg, and gravy. You won't regret it.

    Here again! Try the house pickles, the beef cheek, their biscuit sandwiches like the Bruce Leroy, and end it with the sticky toffee pudding. For a bigger meal, check out their whole animal dinners.

    The beastwich is super delicious and perfect to cure any hangover! Order half salad and half potatoes, both sides have great flavours.

    Beast 120 is the best deal in town! $5 glasses of wine, $4 beers and $4 tasting plates. Try the pig's head pasta, the lamb ribs and their burger, all are amazing. Great service as well.

    Brunch as Beast is a must. Though the Labatt 50 Breakfast might seem tempting, we suggest the Challah French Toast. Read more

    The Baby Bok Choy and Celery Root Steak blew our minds. Also don’t miss the Sweetbreads, Squid, and the Chocolate Banoffee Pie. (closed Sunday)

    Crispy pork hock was delicious, Potato wedges were delicious, maple bacon donut was delicious. Only thing not delicious was the kimchi on my plate. Over salted mess.

    You obviously enjoy excellent food. Chef Michael Stadtländer will be serving up his sumptuous, local and organic menu at the @EarthDayCanada Gala on June 6th at The Drake

    Had the tasting menu. Good food, but quite pricey; and the wine list left a lot to be desired. The brunch here is excellent. My suggestion: come to brunch; it's your best value here.

    It's a festival of rare ingredients, a consistent surprise, a "chef's restaurant." After all, the herb garden is actually in-house, which beats "market-fresh," by, well, a mile.

    Happy hour wine for $5 = win. Avoid the beef tongue lettuce wraps and say yes to gnocchi poutine!

    They go small on the chicken, worth asking for a decent portion when ordering the beastwich. I left still hungry
