I was at this place on Saturday, Feb 21st and could not believe what I saw. These 3 lovley ladies were having a hard time with thier meals. They chose to stay and talk to the owner. What a mistake that was, the owner, who is a huge man 6 ft plus 200 plus lbs, comes at them like a savaged beast cursing and swearing at them for daring to complain about his restuarant. He even called them welfare sluts looking for a free meal and to get the f--k out of his restaurant. He kept yelling and swearing at them to pay the f----g bill and get the f--k out. I swear I thought they were going to cry they looked scared to death and in shock. I even had my cell phone out to call for help. Now these ladies were well dressed and behaved in a pleasant manner and did not look like they were on welfare and definatley not sluts. I was discusted and mortified for these young ladies and never in my life will I recommend this so called restaurant to anyone I know. If this is the way that the owner treats customers who dare to complain about his place, I would hate to have seen what he would do if they continued to speak. They paid the bill and left I'm sure in fear for their lives because he sure scared the hell out of me.
I would just like to thank whoever posted the comment about this place, and what happened there on Feb 21st. I am one of the three ladies that you're talking about. The owner has terrible customer service skills, lacks professionalism, empathy and class. I have never been treated with so much disrepect in my entire life. It still shocks me sometimes that a man in his position could act that way. We are three young women, with children at home. We are far from 'welfare sluts looking for a free meal'. We went out for a girls night, which was intended to lift my spirits, and Jim (the owner) only made me, as well as the other two ladies, feel horrible. An owner of a restaurant should be attempting to please his customers, no matter what the expense. That is what keeps people coming back. And that is why reading your comment made me smile from ear to ear, because at least I now know that someone else observed his obscene behaviour, and also recognizes how wrong it was. And admittedly, we were slightly frightened, as I'm sure anyone else in our position would have been. Thank you for your feedback! At least if people see it, they have a heads-up as to what they may be in for, and who they are giving their money to, and supporting. Cheers!
I was also an on-looker the night that the three ladies were told to leave and I personally feel that the owner was justified in his decision because these girls just wanted a free meal and wanted to make a scene. The waitress was very accomadating and very polite but the girls continued to escalate the situation.
Ps. Stop pretending to have witnessed the incident when it was the three of you together (I have read one of your complaints on another website and it is obvious that you are trying to create a situation).
I go to York University and eat at the fox and fiddle finch on a weekly basis. The service and food are excellent and I've never had a problem. Get a life ladies.
I have dined at this establishment several times for both business and pleasure. The place has it all bar, dinning room, party room downstairs and patio. Service is excellent and the food is great! Had a small problem with one of our meals once which was corrected right away.
I've been going to this particular Fox and Fiddle for almost 5 years now (who know how many untold dollars I've spent, I don't think I want to know) I really can't say enough good things. The waitresses have always been friendly and helpful, the food fantastic. Decent selection of draught beer. (Excellent Beef Vindaloo by the way, have it almost every time I go, other Fox and Fiddles I have gone to don't do it justice) It sounds like these women mentioned below were just trying to make a scene, and have their meal comped. Sometimes you simply have to call people on their BS. Good on you Fox!
Best Fox & Fiddle in town. The subway station at keel and finch is going to make it even better. Keep it up
This resto pub is located near 3 erotic massage parlours and a number of other retail businesses, yet fails to attract female customers. This fox has primarily female wait and bar staff but they can do little to offset this sausage-fest.
Are they LGBT friendly? I can only guess but suspect not for longer than a drink or two.
The management/owners, and some staff (Aaron - security) could easily be labelled as racist for trying to limit the music within to anything that is not of any ethnic persuasion - I prefer to think of them as blissfully ignorant. Forget top 40 hip-hop artists.
Prices are high for drinks and food. I have been given to understand that security is unlicensed - great news for minors looking for a drink as they don't appear to know the difference between fake and real ID. Just a tip kids, Monday is their
The food is passable....the service if you want to call it that exists, somewhat....the management are morons.
