Most impressed with the beer selection. Home brews are pretty good. Food is delicious. Comfort food that actually isn't as greasy/heavy as you'd expect while filling your need for grease. Our server was very nice, though the girl at the door didn't look too enthusiastic...More

My daughter and I stopped in for another delicious meal at C'est What?. The Hogtown Salad is a meal in itself! Fabulous combination of greens, slivered almonds, sliced hard-boiled egg, bacon, pickled onion and other delicious salad fixings in light ginger sesame dressing. The butter...More

Stopped by for some music and a couple pints with my best girl. Gingerbread beer and mocha porter both very tasty. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

I had the Carribean goat stew and gingerbread ale. Both were amazing. The customer service was great and the decor and ambiance was fantastic! On the top of my list for every Toronto trip now!!

St. Lawrence Market. Historic building. Downstairs/cellar ~ you could miss it. Wasn't sure what to expect of C'est what? because we went specifically to hear musicians "People Walking By" and David Madras ~ both excellent performances, worth venturing out on a cold evening. But C'est...More

We dropped by for a drink on a Saturday night. It is a pretty cool place with a great drink selection with craft and house beer. Service was just so so.

This little bar offers live music but little else. The band on Friday night was in sync and the perfect balance but the service was blah. The interior resembles someones rec room and when asking for a suggestion on what to drink creates an eye...More

The place is very well located, easy to find and with plenty of space inside - one of the sections even has a stage for live music. The selection of beers is simply amazing - and they serve probably the best poutine I’ve ever had...More

We love going to C'est What on the many cold grey winter days we get in Toronto. The very cozy environment with real natural gas fireplaces makes you like winter time. We love sitting on the comfy inviting couches beside the fireplace and enjoying drinks...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

Hi, I too do not recommend this place for kids. It is not set up for them, and does not have a kids menu, if I remember correctly. I have no idea about booster seats. If you are in the area, go to the Spaghetti Factory with... More
