Been here a few times and finally getting around to reviewing.

Number of taps is nothing earth-shattering but he quality is very good. The bartenders are always knowledgeable and friendly as well.

Atmosphere is really good. Lots of room and clean. Food is also really good, as long as you are in the mood for a hot dog/sausage.

My one complaint is the chalkboard/beer menu that lists the brewery and not the actual beer/style, which is extremely frustrating when you are trying to make up your mind. Would also save the bartenders a lot of time if they gave more details on the beer list.

Came here for the first time recently with my wife and a group of friends.

Despite the wide variety of interests, everyone seemed to enjoy the vibe of the place. There was a good buzz in the room (pun sort of intended), and as long as you could find seating, it's a great place to sit, chat, eat, and drink.

The food is fantastic. It's fun, unique, and delicious. The duck fat fries are a must and the sausages we tasted were as good as advertised.

The beer list is impressive - a number of Cdn and Ont craft beers, and a good selection from around the world. Agree with the previous poster that the chalkboard of draft beers needs to have the beer style listed - a buddy of mine went up to buy a round and unknowingly came back with the smoke beer for everyone! Though it wasn't universally enjoyed, it did get drunk, and it was a great opportunity to engage in a little beer tasting 101 (e.g. describing that smoked ham flavour).

Service was relaxed, attentive, and prompt.

The only off-putting part of WVRST, and my only complaint, is the markup on some of the bottled selections. Some of the better selections from Quebec and around the world were priced 2.5 - 3 times what you would pay in the LCBO (though they aren't always available there). But, I guess wine suffers the same fate in any other restaurant, so why should beer be any different?

However, overall, WVRST is a place to which I would easily return.

A welcome and warm addition to the Toronto scene, and being close to Bathurst within a reasonable drive for me. A nice revitalizing area. Unusual to walk up to the second floor, yet the atmosphere there is efficient, clean and very pleasant. Staff is most friendly, and were knowledgeable and straightforward about what the beers were about. Prices were reasonable by Toronto standards. Many taps dedicated to Ontario craft, and the allocation to European beers were differentiated from the standard macros. Decent and different bottle selection, and improving with an association for events with the BarVolo crew.
