    Made a reservation and arrived a little early thankfully they sat us right away. Dinner was just okay - I had the short ribs and they were a bit tough and the side dish was not hot. The chicken parm poutine was literally chicken parm on top of fries. The server was just okay - started off okay but just was not too friendly. While I ran to the restroom she told us we had to leave because they had other reservations. It had only just over an hour, not sure if the restaurant has a 90 minute cut off and I missed it but the server certainly missed out on a few more rounds of drinks - and no mention of desserts with us. Cool vibe not sure if I am going back though.

    We both got a burger with sweet potato fries. Burgers were cooked exactly as requested and were very good. Fries were seasoned to perfection. Didn’t catch our waiters name but he was very attentive. Overall it was a great meal. 4 stars as opposed to five just because the prices were a little high (two burgers and one soda $60 (with tip)) and because the soda wasn’t delivered until the meal came out. Not a complaint, just an observation. It’s super convenient to the theatre district so I would definitely go back!

    I never go out of my way to leave a bad review but I’ve also never been treated as I was at JM Curleys last night. Had a booking for dinner and a catch-up with a transatlantic friend I haven’t seen since 2019. We ate, had cocktails and two bottles of wine over the course of 3 hours as we were enjoying catching up. The waiter came over and advised that he had to turn the table over after 4 hours, my friend made an obvious joke asking if this was his polite way of asking us to hurry up and get out and the waiter totally flipped out telling us to pay up and the get the f*** out. At first we thought he was joking, but he continued to shout at my friend to get out. He also almost accused us of not wanting to pay the bill, after we’d already paid for dinner and a round of drinks separately when they’d brought over bills, and all we had still open was a bill for one bottle of wine. We paid up and the other two of us calmly said this isn’t how you speak to customers who’ve been here all night spending money causing no problem, to which he rudely replied “you didn’t even spend that much money”. Firstly, foul, secondly, how many run of the mill burgers do you want me to eat? Honestly i have never been asked to leave a bar in my life, especially when sitting having a quiet dinner with two people. It wasn’t exactly a wild night and nobody was waiting for a table. Regardless of the rules, it was utterly disgusting treatment from an employee and this bar needs naming and shaming for this. We left (obviously 😂) and went to a bar a couple of doors down and had a great night with staff and customer alike. So frankly he did us a favour because the atmosphere was lack lustre, food extremely mediocre, and the worst customer service experience I’ve ever had in my life. Be my guest and head on down to JM Curley’s but for the love of god, don’t stay longer than 3 hours, don’t spend too little money, don’t make jokes with the staff and basically don’t enjoy yourself.

    A highly recommended experience. Hummus was so flavorful, steak frites and chicken blt were on point. Crunch wrap was more of a knife and fork but delicious. Burger was 8 year old approved. Service was top notch. We will return when in the area again.

    Limited menu but something for everyone (burger, Chicken BLT, and Mac & Cheese with the Buffalo Chicken). Food was very good but the real highlight of the place is the help. From the Host, to our excellent server, and friendly staff that delivered the food, everyone at JM Curley made dinner out a memorable experience!

    This was not a good experience for the 6 people I brought to jm Curley. I will admit that the staff was friendly but that is where the goodness ends. All six meals were ill-prepared or incomplete. The burgers were either undercooked or had items on them that were not requested or specifically asked to not be on the burger. Fries came instead of tater tots and tater tots came instead of fries. The fries were soggy so what they gained in quantity was countered by limp fries. The server was slow to clear the table but quick to deliver the bill. I was very dissatisfied with this facility.
