Excellent food lovely waiter great space and great company
So great. So so great. The greatest. The greatest of the great.
We went for my friend's birthday, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The beer selection was great, and the FOOD! OMG! The FOOD! So delicious!
So worth the trip!
Food was ok. Beer was good. Descriptions on the menu didn't match what came out. Example: The breakfast platter was supposed to have kale but came with some sort of cooked cabbage. Server couldn't answer our questions about the menu he had to ask the bartender.
Food was pretty expensive for what we received. The beef fat fries were amazing, but that was the only memorable thing about our meal.
We arrived and found out that our Open Table reservation did not exist because they purported that they do not take 'OpenTable' reservation. However, we did get seated pretty quickly, which made up for it.
The service was quite horrendous. Our server took too long for a very sparse restaurant (especially the indoor side). It took more than 15 minutes after ordering to even get beers on our table, let alone our meals.
The beer selection was pretty good for their own brewery. Overall, if I do go back, it's only to order their beers. I would not go back for food or atmosphere.
A lovely space, nice design, great neighbourhood. the food was AMAZING and allowed for snacking or meals, the place was child-friendly, and service was great.
Beautiful space, alarm went off while we were there and had to wait outside. That was handled fine and the weather was nice so not so bad. Overall, cute space! Good drink selection.
The beer is the best in the city and the food is so good and made from the rooftop garden. Ask the server for a tour of the garden. Highlight of the experience.
Amazing friendly staff, seasonal fresh food, love love love! Always have an outstanding experience here.
Great place, great food, and great beer! Staff was also super friendly.
Great date night at Avling. Fun and tasty food and great beer selection.
For a brewery they have a decent wine list and spirits.
Excellent food and delicious beer pairings. Really warm, welcoming atmosphere and our server Tristan was great.
Great beer. One of the best burgers in the city. Amazing staff.
Can’t fault the service and the food was excellent as always. Did the steak & wine voucher deal for $75.
Great place for pre show drinks!
I had an incredible experience at Avling. The food is unreal, the service is fantastic, and their IPA is super tasty! I can't wait to go again, and try more of their menu/beers.
My friends who ordered steak said it was amazing. Great service: friendly and accommodating. Phone ahead if you need a high-top, or seating for more that 6 people (We will do this next time to spare staff the table-juggling). Lighting is too bright for my taste, but others may appreciate that.
Welcoming spot with a great beer selection!
Went for brunch before an afternoon show at Crows.
3 of us, each had something different, each had questions of the waiter, who was helpful and patient.
The food was delicious and the mimosas went down a treat!
Will be back, for sure
Decor is gorgeous, service is was attentive but not overbearing and the food was fresh, tasty + incredible! Will be back for sure!
A brew pub with very good food. I would go again!!!
I find that some restaurants have difficulty making a large space feel cozy but Avling did just that. It’s warm and inviting. Service was friendly and even though it was quite busy we didn’t feel rushed and they took the time to answer some questions we had about the place. The food was tasty, I had the burger and it did not disappoint. Beers are quite good, I had their Vienna lager. I would definitely go back and I have already recommended it to some friends.
This is a must try experience. The brunch was absolutely delicious! I recommend the burger :) The staff was attentive, and the atmosphere was curiously cozy and trendy. Loved the vibe. 10/10 would recommend to any and everyone! A true Toronto hidden gem!
Excellent beer, food and ambience. Very pleased with attentive service. Noise level a little high probably due to high ceiling and not PA
We were in the east end with another couple for a theatre evening close by. I'd heard good things about Avling.
The service was friendly and informative, both about the food and the beer. We all shared the Rib Eye steak, and added two veggie sides to fill out the meal. It was all delicious, and turned out to be just the right amount of food.
We loved the light and airy room, even on a dark December evening. I would definitely return to try more dishes (and beers) on a bright summer day.
Nice food. Great drinks. They left us in peace to converse, and checked in on occasion.
The ambiance was perfect for us: busy and bubbly with lots of energy and chatter around our hightop. Food was good and service was excellent. Thanks!
Beautiful space, and some very tasty beers. Also, one of the best burgers in the city!
we had a wonderful time, the 4 of us enjoyed the food, the Burgers are Great,
the service was excellent, everyone was so nice to us, thank you sam
We absolutely loved it! Informative friendly attentive service, delicious food and fun ambience. We will definitely be back and we have already recommended it to friends.
Charcuterie board should have cheese and if doesn’t the serve should tell. For $28.00 I would expect cheese.
Charcuterie platter with seasonal pickled veg is tasty.
Avling Pilsner is crisp and refreshing.
Service is friendly and fun.
Pop shop to pickup a six pack is very convenient.
This is a really cool place, beer is excellent and food is delicious. The perfect venue to spend a few hours with friends and/or family. Best to book ahead.
We are not beer people, but The food was to die for.
4 of is shared a number of things, family style.. so we got to taste a lot!
I would never normally order sausages, but when you only eat half a sausage, why not?
These were the best sausages I ever tasted... and I’m from Ireland, so I know good sausages!!
We were fighting over the baked potatoes, they were so good. But the turbot was the ‘piece de resistance’. On a bed of white beans. ... yum memorable
An overall fabulous experience - will be back soon
Four male seniors dined and drank at Avling last week. It was easy to access in a wheelchair. It rolled up to a table by the windows and could have easily gone into the main floor washroom if necessary.
Everyone enjoyed the beer. Avling have a good selection of their own products on tap. We tried at least six different ones. I liked the port; and the 3.9% lager was refreshing. The food was excellent: two orders of fish and chips, one steak and one sausage plate. The triple cooked potatoes were so good we ordered more. But, sadly the pie for dessert was not up to that standard. We’d all go back.
Fantastic place! Amazing food and delicious beer!!!!
Fantastic vibe...above average service.
We'll surely return!!
The burger is my favourite in Toronto right now - they have their own butcher in the basement.
Love trying the small 3 oz of different beer.
They grow their own veggies on the roof!
Staff are great and it’s not too expensive.
Really enjoyed our evening here with visiting UK family. The food was fantastic, portion sizes were perfect. Our server, Tamara, was lovely and made our evening a very happy one.
Had a birthday meal.
The beer has a lot of potential, service is good, steak is professional made. Shared plates are properly portioned , but single orders are too small for it’s price.
An order of a green from their rooftop costs $13 after tax (I have never paid that price in any 5 stars hotel for a side size dish). This fact will make me not going back.
