    Had a great experience at Mother Cocktail bar. I went with a friend, and we both tried cocktails with interesting flavour combinations that you wouldn't normally find other places. We each had two drinks, and found them to be unique, delicious, and well-mixed. Definitely would recommend for cocktail lovers and anyone with a sense of adventure!

    The service was beyond amazing. Everyone checks in on you and makes you feel so welcomed. The cocktails were delicious and I loved the meaning behind the menu sections. They even brought me a delicious dessert for my birthday, complimentary. One of my favorite experiences in Toronto ever.

    Great service, owner and staff were so lovely. Had the Mother burger and frites - the dill on the fries were a nice touch. Toasted chai pina colada is a must try, and my partner could not have given a higher praise for the Mother old fashion.

    An outstanding cocktail bar/restaurant; we shared the foie gras and the steak tartare both exquiste and added to our 'real find' feeling. Don't be put off by the fact that everyone (exceot us) appeareed to be in their 20s! It was buzzing but truly excellent. The dry martinis can be recommended. If you find yourself in Toronto - go.

    I visited here for cocktail but food was better than cocktail. The cocktail I ordered was Winter Soft Rosita which was recommended by the server, but it tasted like a liquid digestive medicine. Other than that, it was all good! Such a great place with great vibe!

    Didn’t eat there but my god, probably the best cocktail bar in Toronto. The staff were all fantastic, it was entertaining, the cocktail menu was extensive and extremely creative. The porcelain cocktail was my favourite. If it wasn’t because I had to work the next I’d be there the whole night! Would go back in a heart beat!
