    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.

  • Sachiko P.
    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.

  • Deven D.
    Highly recommend the Jambalaya - lots of shrimp, chicken and sausage. Great value. King Czech is a great beer. For something different, try Steve's Dreaded Chocolate

    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.
    Matthew Hogan · September 2, 2011

    C'est What has one of the best selection of craft beers in town and their antojitos are absolutely the most delicious item on the menu.

    Watch out for cask nights! C'est What shows off craft beers from all around Ontario. For only $1, you get a 3 oz. taster shot of beer!

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

    Watch the host. If you get the one I had, you may get "unhelpful with a side of attitude".

  • James C.
    Don't expect to play great games of pool- cues are shorten and the walls are close.

    I want to like this place BC the beer selection is amazing...but the menu/food are below average
    Steve V · March 14, 2013
  • Pierre Nick
    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!
    Pierre Nick · March 28, 2010

  • C.C. ♡.
    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.

    Great selection of microbrews... but a Slayer fan may feel a little out of place lol. Hipster Alert!

    The Artichoke and Parmesan dip should be called the Garlic and Garlic dip. Couldn't even taste the other ingredients.
    Ryan Alafriz · December 16, 2011
  • Bryson
    Try a pint of 10W30. Don't be scared off by the name (or the appearance), it's a great dark beer.
    Bryson · May 11, 2010
