At the intersection of Spadina Avenue and Wellington Street, in the busy downtown core, sits a little historic park called Clarence Square. In the summer, people sit or lay back on the park benches to read, nap or people-watch. Occasionally squirrels race down the enormous trees, chattering at each other, while small dogs, let loose by their condo owners, scrabble after them.

A italian snack bar with great cocktails and and ambiance. From pasta to think crust pizza to snacks. Come in and meet her...

Was hesitant to order snacks because of the previous reviews but our order came out quickly and food was great! On top of the delicious drinks and cute decor, service was excellent. Overall a great night!

Went for my boyfriends birthday, everything was awful. The food,service, drinks took over an hour. I have lived in Toronto for 4 years and this is by far the worst experience I have ever had. I deeply regret picking this place as a place to host 16 of my partners friends. Would not recommend at all.

We had such a great time at eighteen30. The food and drinks were amazing. Our server Tristan was the best- super attentive and added to the amazing atmosphere!

A small, quiet restaurant, with excellent food, low-key service, and very cute decor. My out-of-town guest really enjoyed the food and loved the ambiance of the place. Would definitely recommend.

The atmosphere and the server were great. We ordered beers but it was warm, also our oysters were warm and weren't served on ice. Our food took way too long. Its a really cool place to just chill but not to eat or get a nice cold beverage.

This place needs a lot of work.

Service was incredibly slow. We had to ask for cutlery 3x after our food arrived and there were only 2 other guests on the patio with us. Would not go back.

Service was super slow and not attentive. The food came cold with both the appetizer and main coming. And with the small tables the table was cramped. Perhaps having one server all night isn’t a good idea. I’m sad, that’s the case as I wanted to like this place.

I wouldn't recommend this place for food. it wasn't good at all.
Although would recommend for drinks and more casual time.
The server was very friendly and attentive, but got most of our order wrong.

We had a fantastic experience for our Mothers Day Brunch! The ambience was cozy and cool with funky photo ops. There was live music which created a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and great value. I recommend this spot and will definitely be back!

This is a great little place with unique ambience; there's bar and bar-adjacent seating on stools in the front, then it opens up into garden-like table seating at the back. The service was very friendly and prompt. We had the gnocchi and the seafood linguini, both of which were tasty and well-sized portions. The music level was a bit too high when we came in at 6pm, but was manageable away from the speakers. Not wheelchair-accessible.

The food is tasty but small portion sizes for your money, drinks were delish and I even tried something the bartender had suggested. The downfall is the service seemed confused when we first got there and I kept having to flag someone down anytime I needed to order, i prefer when wait staff checks in on you.

Our table was in the corner at the front, with a barstool wedged in between us, which meant the waitress kept leaning on me and reaching over our food. It was a very strange layout.
My friend ordered the tequila cocktail, which tasted like a glass of tequila, as well as the octopus as a main. We couldn’t cut through the octopus. I ordered the rabbit pappardelle, which tasted good but was full of BONES. So many pieces of cartilage and bones - it was really unappealing, not to mention I could have choked. I’ve never had bones in a pasta dish before... they should probably give customers a heads up (if it’s even supposed to be served like that in the first place?)
Anyway, won’t be back.

I was able to make a reservation for brunch today (11:45) only to get there and be told that the restaurant doesn’t open until 5pm.

The night started off great as I had a large group of 18, and the manager did amazing to accommodate our reservation to a private area of the restaurant. Drinks and cocktails were great, but once we ordered food everything went down hill. Our server was great and very hospitable, but the kitchen was terribly slow to get the food out. All the appetizers came out separate. The food was mediocre and small portions (although the bang bang chicken is a tasty snack). We ordered mains and it took nearly 2.5 hours for the meals. About 5/18 of the party received their main dish, all while a table beside our group was receiving several dishes even though they showed up about an hour after our group. The main course was taking so long several members of the group had to cancel their orders. Most people didn’t get their dishes and others received them as we were fed up and leaving. Not once did the manager who had initially sat out group, check on our group, food quality or apologize for the absurdly long wait for a couple of pastas, salads and burgers. At one point I went to find the manager myself and I saw him arguing with our server over refusing to remove an item off a bill for an item not even received. It became laughably clear this restaurant is not up to par. The restaurant is fairly new but won’t last very long if this level of service continues.

A cute cozy spot tucked away in a quiet spot just steps from King/Spadina. Extremely comfortable seating with romantic lighting make this a place Id love to sit and have have drinks. The Lala margaritas were amazing, I’d go back just for them! We had the brussel sprouts, rabbit papparadele, and the chicken supreme and they were all bursting with flavour, would definitely have them again.
