Almost ruined a wonderful evening

I was there with 7 friends on Saturday night. As I went to the bar, I was greeted with a ""We are at capacity. This is really not a good place for your book club to meet. Make sure that you stay out of the middle lane because of fire regulations."" What a welcome! Here I was poised to drop $200 on cocktails. I had literally been there the evening before and suggested that our group (yes all women but not a book... view more

NASTY

Went there early in the week and took a friend out for dinner. She does not drink-17 years sober. She ordered a seltzer water with then dinner at the empty bar. Told we could not sit at the bar since she did not order alcohol--even though i did. There was one other couple at the bar and and by no means crowded. I was very shocked. We left and went across the way to Coquette where we had a wonderful experience... view more

Uggghhh! AVOID THIS PLACE!!

We didn't even get to the dinner. Our waiter was SO RUDE that we left, though it was late and we were starving. Everything was overpriced, and I didn't see anything that interesting on the menu. It took over 15 minutes before we were served a drink (at the bar), and the bartender seemed to hate us...he kept looking over and frowning at us. He finally came over and spoke to us in a short, peremptory tone.

Best restaurant in the city!

I eat out a lot, and am a hugely fussy eater, but I have to say, I have yet to have anything less than a superb dining experience at Southwark. Despite what some other reviewers feel, the portions are the perfect size, and the freshness of the ingredients always shines through in the perfect mix of flavours (none of the cream- and butter-soaked sticky sauces favoured by Ansill or Supper). The constantly changing menu... view more

Eat Local

The menu is simple with mostly local, fresh ingredients. The plates are very accessible compared to Ansill which is more eccentric but equally pleasing. If you eat late expect certain things to run out, evidence of the fresh ingredients. \r The bar is also worth a stop; try a sazerac. It's also the only place I have found in the city that sells Junipero gin.

just ok

nice ambience, dining in the courtyard was nice. service was fine, and the food was pretty good too, but some of the portions were way too small for the price. we both work in fine restaurants, and couldn't believe the 2 (underseasoned) scallops on the ""large plates"" menu for $23. overall, it was a little bit disappointing because we walked in with high expectations.

Best Bartenders in the city. Amazing food.

I am surprised that there were bad reviews of this restaurant. The staff is so efficient, knowledgable and pleasant I don't know what sort of person you'd have to be to elicit a negative response out of them. I believe someone complained that their food came too quickly, so I guess some people are unpleasable. If you have a litlle bit of class, an appetite for excellent, intelligent, seasonal food and a thirst for... view more

Unimpressive Meal

I hestitate to even write this review - maybe I just misordered? We were so excited to try Southwark, which always looks so inviting. While I'd still definitely give the bar a shot, our meal was incredibly disappointing. Served so quick you'd swear we were at McDonalds, the food tasted as though it had been sitting out all night. The brisket/beef that I had was rubbery in texture and seemed as though the sauce wa... view more

Terrible customer service

A friend and I went to Southwark last night and had a frustratingly bad time. When it came to order, there were two salads offered, a goat cheese salad and an arugula salad with blue cheese. I asked for the arugula salad but if they could replace the blue cheese with the goat cheese. The waiter, with a surprisingly haughty attitude told me, ""No substitutions."" I then asked if I could have the arugula salad, but hol... view more
