The Libertine Public House

MODERN PUB Welcome to 8000 sq ft. and two floors of unrestrained eating, drinking, and socializing in the spirit of a Libertine. Step inside and watch the scene, lunch, or join us for happy hour. Looking for a different atmosphere, head upstairs to lunch or lounge overlooking Stephen Avenue.

Implementing a "fresh is better" philosophy to food and beverage, the Libertine's beer list showcases breweries that share the sentiment. We offer the best regional micro and craft brews available. We rotate our taps on a regular basis to offer seasonal beer and unique to Libertine offerings. Our service team guides guests through the product, offering up flights of sample sized pours for those who want it all! We don't forget about great wine and cocktails – you will find tongue-in-cheek labels and eclectic varietals in our broad wine selection and an indulgent cocktail list with an edge.

"We had a celebration lunch for a new employee here. Every member of our group of eight expressed their enjoyment of the food and how we were not squished into a sitting area too small, which has happened to us before elsewhere.
Our server was very nice and no mistakes were made on anyone's order. When the food was ready a small group of people brought it out so we were all served hot food, all together, at the same time.
I (we) would recommend The Libertine Public House for any group event in the future and it would be a great spot for a pair of people to visit as well.

"Great spot for lunch with friends, or business colleagues alike. Food was decent as were the various food selections. Good atmosphere and solid line up of beers and wine. The upstairs is really good if you have more than a few joining you for lunch. If you have a last minute lunch plan, they were able to accomodate."

"Varied menu. Good service. I choose the red curry shrimp bowl. Great portion but was a bit too mushy for my liking but maybe not for others. It had a lot of shrimp and some very nice heat. I'd actually order it again. Friend had a burger (good) with nice salad."

"I used to come here just for the bbq chicken flatbread - since its been changed to pizza it is not as good.
It is quite loud. For a table of 2 you have to sit in the center of the isle and it is very busy and people keep bumpinginto you... not a good experience.

"I've been here before and enjoyed it but this time was disappointed. The Caesar salad was overly garlicky and my colleagues had medicore things to say about their food. The waitress was odd, as if she couldn't be bothered with us and wanted us to leave."

"One of the gals ordered the pork belly sandwich and it was mostly fat. That wasn't good but the rest was good."
