This place is literally a "House" on Parliament (Street) and it literally knocked my socks off. Don't go here thinking you'll be visiting one of the Houses of Parliament -- those are actually in Ottawa which is about a five hour drive away. Easy mistake...More

The food was very good, as was the service although our server seemed a bit harried. This was understandable as the place was PACKED. Our only complaint is one over which the restaurant has no control unfortunately, but it did detract significantly from our enjoyment...More

I’m happiest in a pub and this place fits the bill perfectly. The beer list is good. Warm feel inside. Pub food is good and affordable. The staff is very attentive. This is one of those places I have and will return to frequently.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

No...but unless it is a holiday or something, the lines move pretty quickly. I have yet to wait a really long time before being seated.
