Fantastic! Simple menu, beer and sausages. I like Wvrst take a chance on smaller start up craft breweries so you’ll often see outstanding beer here that you won’t see anywhere else.At the same time they wwill also bring in Quebec beer and popular seasonals from bigger breweries. $5 Ontario craft beer pints on Mondays are the real deal.
Great service, staff know their beer and thee food is simple and tasty.
I was visiting Toronto and checked with Ratebeer as to places. This was my second stop and after a very nice Great Lakes Lake effect IPA. Was recommended, I had a chance to meet the owners, Aldo and Bram. Both were extremely knowledgeable and made some great recommendations. Plan on coming back and enjoying the food as well!
This place is down right wicked awesome cool. Hands down the place i think to go for a beer in toronto. It has all the makings for my kind of place. One of minor features which makes it that much better then most bars, is the order your food and pay, not having to wait for the waitress to give you your bill and pay. The convenience is assume. My only complaint is the beer is kind of a bit expensive even for toronto standards. But its not enough to scare me off and clearly the patrons of toronto, as it is always crazy busy when your here. Recommend coming here early for dinner or lunch as you can miss some of the traffic.

Great place food sausages and beer. Elegant picnic table - communal tables, nice beer selection, and extensive sausage selection. Beer selection has improved noticeably. Friendly wait staff.
I was really looking forward to this place, and it did not disappoint! A mix of "line up and order" service with table service, friendly knowledgable staff, and a very social feel to it. Love the wall decorated like the wall of a subway platform, with station name "WVRST". Elk sausage on a bun was delicious. Now let’s move past the misleading name and concentrate on what this place is REALLY about - beer! An incredible selection of nothing but quality beer (you won’t find Coors Light here). Big focus on Ontario and Quebec beer. Rotating taps end up giving you even more options than the menu leads you to believe. I was able to find some beers that have been on my "must try" list for some time here. Tap takeovers (Le Troue du Diable and Dieu du Ciel are coming up), Monday "craft beer" nights (with $5 craft beer pints), as well as other events make this an exciting place to come back to time and time again. This will have to be a regular stop for me when I am in town.
Not sure why it took me so long to discover this place. Extremely solid beer selection, and sausage is one of my favourite foods. Plus, cool setting: big communal tables, and an unofficial house rule against popped collars.
Beau restaurant avec des tables communes. Le choix de nourriture est plutôt limité (saucisses) mais excellent. Beau choix de bières en fût, environ une vingtaine de bières ontarienne et un grand choix de bières en bouteilles. (Avec des prix plutôt élevés). Service efficace et sympathique, les prix sont un peu élevés, mais bon on est à Toronto.
Wvrst is a unique and memorable restaurant in Toronto. The attention to detail in this place is terrific. I appreciate the aesthetic: simple writing on the wall, pared down menu, plain black tap handles with single letters of the alphabet stuck to the wall behind each one. The room is long, full of wooden ’beer hall’ picnic tables. Mixture of beer drinkers with glass handled 1 litre ’mass’ German lager beers and others with smaller Canadian draught pints and sausages on metal plates with wooden forks. Service was friendly. We arrived for lunch; it was not too busy. Bar tender knew her beer and poured many samples, all very fresh. Dieu du Ciel tasted wonderful! No TVs was a plus, though it looks like they pull down a projector screen for the Leafs game. Wvrst only serves sausage, frites and beer. Really good sausage, delicious frites and wonderful beer. Better to do three things so very well, than 30 things more forgettably. Beer hall tables make for a warm and fun place to sit with friends. Recommended.
Popped in here on a Sunday evening and they had a vertical offering of Sawdust City’s Long Dark Voyage. Killer offering. I hadn’t known you could age draft beer, but I’m sure glad they did! the 2014 was my fave. The sausages are unreal and service was excellent, Michelle and Christian (hoping i got names right) were charming and engaging at the bar.
