Not only is the Irish Embassy an impressive sight inside, the food is good and it's reasonable too. If you go on Thur/Fri after the offices get out, plan on being with the crowd. It's a great place to go for a weekend pub meal.
Ok, so I booked the first Hotel I found online. I get to my hotel, look onto the other side of the Street and eye The Irish Embassy pub, winner of several awards in Toronto. Coincidence? Not a chance. The bar manager was a lad named Kelly who knows how to pull a pint of Guinness and remembers your name right away. The food is also very good, and we stopped here several times during my brief stay. Hotsauce even watched the Patriots game with me, despite being worn down from a long week. Later Kymba and Spgood joined us. I Also had a pint here earlier with Katmo, Bradbrown and Frankcanfly.
I'd highly recomend anyone in Toronto to seek out this Pub.
Favorite Dish: I had a great sandwich, Grilled white cheddar with REAL bacon and tomato on whole grain toast. It was delicious!
