It was overall a pretty good experience. I found the lighting too bright (I asked to have them dimmed but I guess it wasn’t possible) and the music a bit too loud for me but other than that, it was a nice vibe. Food was hit and miss, pico de Gallo salad wasn’t great, and I was underwhelmed by the Birria tacos, would’ve liked a bit more crunch inside. The burger was amazing though and the fries were really good. And the drinks were great!

Absolute great time as always. Julia and mikes recommendations were amazing. James made a great freestyle for my mom who never drinks and she really enjoyed it. Music was top notch, thank you so much!

The hostess was accommodating when we wanted to switch tables, and our server was attentive and had great recommendations from the menu. We didn’t sample the food, but loved the drinks! Will definitely come by again.

I would definitely recommend this place! All the cocktails I have tried have very interesting flavours, the personnel is extremely polite and considerate, and the food is very delicious (which is not that common for bars).

Been to Mother multiple times before and visited again on a busy Thursday night. The bar has a great concept around sustainability and it’s well-reflected in their hand crafted cocktails. Drinks, especially stirred, were on the sweeter end and service was really slow. We had to flag down our server twice to order. Overall I’d recommend Mother for the experience; however, I do not see it as a bar that I would frequent.

Disappointing. The food and drinks were good. What ruined the experience was the condescending attitude of the server who reminded us that this is a 'world class cocktail bar' and that we should know better than to ask for pedestrian drinks, such as coke. This patio is also right next to a major road so the ambiance is not 'world class'.

Did not try the food but the drinks and service were awesome. Unfortunately we were seated in like a corner at the entrance, awkward seating… but everything else was incredible. Really cool concept and I look forward to going back and hopefully get seated at the bar!

Our waiter was high so he kept forgetting our orders. The other servers that came were nice. However it was a bit frustrating having to repeat multiple times to the same server what our drink and food orders were

Great experience! Thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and the drinks were some of the best I've tasted in the city. Henry was as skilled of a bartender as he was upbeat and friendly. Appreciated the extra level of service from our server, Ben as well. Recommend that anyone check it out!
