One of my all time favorite places to drink. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and are always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you have a good time. There is a beer (or cider) for everyone here. If you want to try something, chances are they have it.

My favourite beer bar in Toronto. The food is average but they consistently have interesting Ontario micro brews on tap.
I always sit at the bar and every time the staff is friendly, welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the selection of beers.
The basement vibe is really cool without being pretentious,.

I'm starting to question my time on this site based on the reviews I seem to be at odds with much of the time. C'est What is NOT a brewpub for starters, it is a great pub that only serves Canadian micro brews. Very comfortable, great staff, beer is always fresh, well served, and with a wide selection. I suppose BA geeks might miss the lack of imperial stouts and IIIPAs, but who cares, the quality here is excellent. Definitely my favorite in Toronto, don't miss it.

Good menu, huge rotating range of craft beers, many cask conditioned. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. All round one of my favourite places to have a few in the city.

Stopped by for a birthday lunch and left very happy. C'est What is located across the street from Toronto's "Flatiron Building" (Not sure of the actual name) in a cozy, comfortable and attractive subterranean room decorated in light wood and stonework. There is a lengthy bar on one side and the usual smattering of tables and such. Very atmospheric. Along with this is a very impressive beer list that offers their own house beers and several local crafts. (They do have something on cask, as well.) Excellent service and some hearty grub made for a fine lunch amid the hustle and bustle of the city's downtown core.
During my visit, I enjoyed these: Hogtown Kolsch, Al's Cask, Joan's Dark Secret and a tasty IPA from one of Ontario's newer brewers Rhyme and reason.
A worthy stop when in Toronto.
