State & Main Kitchen + Bar - Etobicoke
The ambience was very good, staff very friendly. The food too was nice and quantity sufficient.
good for business lunch. Noise level was moderate so we were able to communicate with ease, and food was good!
Disappointing on all levels. Food portions were small and not very tasty. Will not return.
Our group of 8 waited an over hour for food; the cheese dip with the pretzel bites was scorched but we ate anyway because ... an hour + wait for food. Drinks came quickly though.
We’re regulars and the service and kitchen speed is always uneven. Always. Food either comes in 15 minutes or you’re waiting unreasonable times.
Our second time at State and Main proved to be not as great as our first time. Great location, open ambiance, and clean. However, the food really wasn't as good as the last time we went. It was decent, but for almost the same prices, I think we would rather go to the Keg.
I think this place is ideal for under 40 and w/o kids, as they have some great drink specials.
First time we've tried State & Main
We were impressed
Service and food were very good
(although the food arrival was a little slow)
Only things we would mention to forewarn people
> The menu is somewhat limited - lots of appetisers but could use more main dishes
> The price is reasonable for what you get, but understand it is more expensive than a Kelsey's but less expensive than Milestones
Good lunch with a client. I reserved a sit down table but they tried to put us at high top. It was busy so service was slow. My client had to leave before bill came and I waited another 10 minutes before waitress noticed I needed to leave. Other than that, all was fine
not bad was very busy and loud in our section at the back
Good food. Good service. Only negative was background music which was way too loud. Asked them to turn it down
We had a nice diner. The hostess was sweet, showed me to my reserved table, where my husband was waiting for me. Our waitress was very professional too. I asked if they had sangria, and ordered a red one, she mentioned that their white one was better, so I took her suggestion, and I am glad I did! We ordered the bang bang shrimp, again with waitresses suggestion of sauce on the side as I was worried about the spice level of one of the sauces. VERY delicious, I loved the unagi sauce. My West Coast salad was great, had all the things I love in it. My husband had a steak sandwich and was very pleased with it.
Made a reservation for four guests and one arrived early and said the name of the person who made the reservation. When the others arrived the reservation wasn’t checked and were then seated at a different table leaving the person who arrived a bit early sitting at a completely different table. It wasn’t that busy to get the reservation mixed up. Not a good experience to start off with.
French onion soup was OK - but too much cheese and not enough flavour/depth.
Re ambience - a hundred too many TV's. Very distracting, and will discourage me from ever coming back. I guess S+M more of a SPORTS BAR and the Kitchen part an add-on.
Starters took a little while to come out but server took care of us. Chicken wings and calamari tasted great! We ordered the steak oscar - crab cake was meh, but the rest of the entree was delicious. Would definitely return!
I think no one looks at the notes entered.. this was the second time I requested a table and it was not reserved.
Also this time of year to not have wine that is on the menu shows poor planning.. Thursday wine is the feature.
the food was fresh and good, but not outstanding as i was expecting considering the prices.
Food was terrible cold and oily tasted like it was under warm light
The reservation didn't seem to be in place. Not sure if making a reservation through OpenTable works in general or works at this location.
Went to watch the Raptors 2019/2020 Season Opener and had a great time. My only setback was the chicken fingers we ordered were slightly burnt and over-cooked. Apart from that, no complaints.
Overall a good place to get a descent dinner with friends and family.
Staff was attentive , food was great with lots of choices and very reasonably priced.
Worth another visit
We arrived on time and had our choice of seating. It wasn’t overly busy but was very noisy with patron chatter and numerous tv screens showing multiple events.
I had fish tacos, which was quite messy, and each taco contained only one piece of deep fried fish (2 oz maximum)
It’s ok to watch a game, but if you’re looking for a good dining experience, go elsewhere.
Our spot for business meal
Clean friendly restaurant and food was great.
Very reasonably priced booze and food
Fun afternoon out.. worth a visit
Quiet only a few people around. Nice lunch out on patio beside East Mall. Our waitress was happy, friendly and gave us excellent service. The West Coast salad was tasty but could have had more cranberries and avocado. One lady had the Thai salad with some spice. She said it was delicious. I will go back to try some other dishes.
Amazing servers, and lots of interesting food offerings! A bit noisy, but they immediately moved us away from the party-ers and all was well! Great neighbourhood restaurant!
Good experience overall.. Hopefully next time I could up one star.
Reason I gave a 4 star was because the fish tacos I asked for almost came with no fish and a whole ton of lettuce. Even the server was shocked. They did send out a second plate but had to wait a very long time! Second round although was perfect.
My bf had the grilled chicken breast sandwich & that was an absolute 5 star.
We will come back and try it again.
Food was good as was service. Timing was good - not too slow or too rushed. Inviting ambiance. Menu is more limited than it was last time I was there.
First time trying this restaurant! Food was great! Service was very good as well! Would definitely return!
Great service, outstanding food! Restaurant was a little but loud but overall, a great experience.
My husband and I were visiting family in Toronto, and looking for somewhere to eat nearby. State & Main was the perfect low key date night spot...delicious food, laid-back atmosphere, and friendly staff. We enjoyed ourselves enough to take his parents back there the following night. I wish there was a State & Main near us in Houston, TX!
Wife and I had date , had some wings and beer . Was good as usual .
Good Food Good Service. Good place for a meal. Close to highway
Loved this spot! We had drinks and the steak. Everything was great :) wouldn’t recommend bringing a huge group as it was pretty full but a very nice place.
Love the food, it is a bit loud in there, but we still keep coming back.
Lots of TVs to watch the games. Nice booths.
Excellent food and ambiance! Would definitely go back, however not all food came out at the same time unfortunately so half of us were waiting for food for quite some time.
Owned by Cara, along with the Keg and others, this restaurant/bar from Alberta is on par with Milestones, Kelsey’s, Montana’s style restaurants.
