    Absolutely love this place!!! In the top 3 best beer pubs in all of Toronto. Was in town for weeks and so disappointed until I tried C'est What. Totally turned my opinion of Toronto's beer scene 180!!

    If you love trying new local beers and playing pool, there is no better bar in Toronto. Staff are very knowledgeable about their large selection of brews! Tried my first gravity fed beer here.

    One of the best selections of micros in Ontario. Nice ambience. Beer knowledgeable owner. One thing could improve - the menu: hasn't really changed in 10-15 years. That's the only detractor.

    Huge selection of local beer, good food at great prices. Try the shrimp and fish cakes or the buffalo burger! Half-pints and sample sizes for beer are also available.

    Harry Porter and the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean. Amazing name aside, it's a great beer with a strong vanilla aftertaste. Only served on Saturdays after 3pm.

    The hummus/tzatziki dip is great to snack on. If you're a bit hungrier try the lamburger. Both go great with a pint of St. Ambroise Apricot Wheat.

    My first pub experience in TO, this place has the best selection of craft beers from around Ontario. Don't miss it you're visiting Toronto.

    Friend's bday. "Can't come in. Over capacity. Get in line." "You mean these 2 guys?" "Yes." Get in 1 min later. Lots of tables open but marked "reserved". You're a pub. Pretentiousness is unbecoming.

    The place in Toronto for the best of Ontario. No big name brands, no mass-produced beers, just great Ontario craft beers.

    One of our best beer assets in this city! Food is great, service is great, but the beer is what keeps me coming back!

    Beer selection is unmatched in the city. And for the adventurous, always some choice cask ale. Try the Neustadt.

    Saturday afternoon dixieland and jovial if somewhat geriatric vibe. Unpretentious basement haunt.

    Poutine here ("the best west of the Ottawa river" they say) is good but it's far from being the real thing. Still give it a try!

    If drinking beer or warm drinks is your sort of thing, then C'est What is probably for you; don't go for the food. Average at best.

    The Artichoke and Parmesan dip should be called the Garlic and Garlic dip. Couldn't even taste the other ingredients.

    Try a pint of 10W30. Don't be scared off by the name (or the appearance), it's a great dark beer.
