Irish Embassy

Posted by Staff / Listed on June 16, 2010 / review policy

Irish EmbassyThe Irish Embassy is In a fabulous old bank building on the corner of Yonge and Wellington. This is the rowdier, sportier and even more suit filled older brother to P.J. O'Brien. The high ceilings ensure a loud evening, but the service is top notch and so is the food. Owned by the same people who bring you Shopsy's and Quinn's Steakhouse it's a good place to watch the game. Any game.

Nice try...who writes these bloody reviews.

The food is average at best and the service the same.

What really makes this place a joke is the fact that i ordered a Guinness on tap and it arrived ice cold. When I informed my server of the problem she just stared at me blankly as she had no idea what I was talking about or what the problem with an ice cold Guinness was. That's great for a place calling itself the Irish Embassy...

FAIL!

Wonderful spot. Best professional service in any irish pub in this city. ( and i have been to them all.) If you want to go to a joint and see a bunch of drunks sitting on bar stools all day - then the Irish Embassy is not for you. Food is solid - but could use a menu update... Atmosphere and decor is excellent. Excellent staff and attention to detail. Anytime i have brought guests there, all have been impressed.

Does this place have live irish music? My 23rd birthday is approaching and I would love to go to a great Irish pub. Looking for a good loud, beer mug chugging type of place. Any suggestions?

Just got back from 10 days in Ireland and the Guinness is served ice cold at EVERY pub! I think you are confused with English beer that is served at room temperature themacguy!!!

Going by their website, it shows that all the rugby games are shown and the likes of premier league and champions league games also! Like home you're not gonna get a lot of televised gaa games in March anyway but if they show all the rest I'd guess the games between Sweden and Austria will be shown!!
