The best bar in Toronto. Staff, drinks, ambience, decor - it’s all there. Don’t waste your time any place else.

Okay I want to make one thing perfectly clear, before the change in menu this bar was 5 stars. Utterly amazing food,... fantastic original cocktails great staff and a prime location. I loved it but the new menu is just sad, dime a dozen drinks you can get at any bar in the city like the Manhattan, Negroni, Old Fashioned and alike, worst of all the only food available now is pizza from the kitchen they shared they had a grilled cheese that was to die for and Tandoori Chicken Flatbread that was pure heaven.This is not a knock on the staff they're great and they mix great drinks but next to nothing about the bar's menu stands out and because of that there's no reason for me or my friends to return now. I'll stick to it's sister bar the Shameful Tiki cause they have a great Drink selection AND a great food menu.My advice bring back your signature cocktails toss the standard fair you can get at most other bars and for the love of god a dash of variety in the food. At least bring back the grilled cheese and the Tandoori Chicken Flatbreadread more

Stumbled upon this place while exploring Bloor West and we were so glad we visited! We were intrigued by the interior... when we were passing by someone entering. Drinks were amazing and the mixologist knows how to make a banger of a drink. Will definitely be coming back to try out other drink varieties!read more

So glad I found this place! I love a tiki bar / tropical cocktail bar, and this place was amazing. They have about a... dozen classic cocktails like the namesake cocktail (one of my faves), plus several original creations that were outstanding. I recommend the London Grog! Great food items as well. The vibe was cozy and welcoming and the bathrooms were immaculate. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful, and the bartender seemed to be having fun. I'll definitely be making a stop here anytime I'm in Toronto. And it's conveniently accessible by subway. A real gem.read more

We heard great things and were excited to try this fun looking spot, but… we showed up for our reservation only to find... the place closed. We made the reservation via their online booking system 2 days in advance, received a confirmation email and a request to confirm the day of the booking. It’s only after we made the long trip to the restaurant and we’re standing outside in the cold that we realized there isn’t a phone number to speak with anyone on their website, Google, or other social media platforms. I sent a DM via Instagram and see that someone read the message but no one responded. I’m sure it’s still a lovely place but I guess I will never know.read more

a really fun spot with interesting drinks! every one is so different, and the presentation is always a surprise. I... tried the "london grog" and the "as good as gold" and both were delicious. the drinks with dairy in them - like the "as good as it gets" - drink more like a milkshake than a fresh and fruity cocktail.having been to the bar that previously occupied this spot, it's incredible how Port Light has transitioned the space - the decor is incredible, and you really feel like you're in a ship.read more

$15 for a cup of ice. This place is way overrated by you Torontonians. 99% of the drink is made of ice. Two sips and... the drink is gone. This place is the biggest rip off of life. I decided to order shots instead because I knew I was getting ripped off. They serve half shots… the shot literally came half full in a shot glass like what??read more

My spouse and I walked in on a Friday night. Samir (hope I am spelling the name right) made me a delicious but not a... noticeabley alcoholic drink - much to my delight - and my spouse ordered The Pain Killer which he liked! Recommend this fun place!read more

This place was just so fun, and I can't say enough good about the stellar service. Two servers were attentive to our... group of 4, and super with recommendations. The patio was spaced out well. Our server even ran to catch us as I left my sunglasses on the table. You should go!read more

Disappointing cocktails to go.Wanted a pick-me-up on the way home after a tough week. Asked for options, Vicky wasn't... sure. Asked for one and maybe another if could do alcohol on the side, but no, only blended.Bottle is cute but ....tiny and plain.read more

Stumbled upon this bar and grabbed a seat on their patio. The drinks are AMAZING and so fun to order and see the... different creations. Not to mention, they all seem to be beautiful!. It’s a super fun and cool vibe, the inside feels like the hull (is that the right word?) of a boat. Staff is super nice and knows the drink menu super well! Will definitely be back with a bigger group of friends - I can’t wait to bring people to this fun bar!read more

Port Light On Bloor is a total 10/10The vibe is totally made for summer 2021.Great atmosphere, and a very unique... drink menu from the Port Light special to the Pain Killer, local and foreign spirits come together to make some exceptional cocktails.If you're here be sure to ask for Jul. She is one of the most attentive severs you will ever meet. Not only did she mention all of the food items available with us still being in lockdown, but she ensured that all of our orders came out at once and provides some great recommendations.The Tandoori Chicken Flat bread and the Corn Tostads with home made Pico De Gallo will make you want to come back for more. Not to spicy, all local produce, and most importantly will help you keep those drinks flowing.If you're around Bloor West and Ossington definitely check out the Port Light!!read more
