The potato and roasted garlic soup was out of this world. Very fresh and tasty. An outstanding start. Mains were salmon, pork and tuna ravioli. All the mains were extremely good. The pork and ravioli was particularly good. The bread pudding for desert was another hit. Service was excellent. They have a small but well rounded wine list. They were... More

Ate there with my adult son, his wife and a fellow professor of theirs. We all had excellent meals, except my wife, who was not impressed by the tuna meatball. I tasted it and I too thought it was unremarkable. The tuna taste was lost in the rest of the ingredients. Speaking for myself, I had a corn soup and... More

The food, atmosphere and service are wonderful. We ordered the soup, a salad, an entree and dessert. All were spectacular. The only complaint would have to be some strange, screechy music that detracted from the otherwise first class experience. There is obviously talent and a passion for food in the kitchen.

I recently dined at the Only with a group of my gal pals and we had a great meal. There was a special menu featured (3 courses for $35) which was an awesome deal. Each course was super fresh, delicious and just overall awesome! I had the zucchini soup (so good!), the trout (also yummy) and then the mocha semifreddo... More

I had been encouraged to eat at The Only on King by a colleague, and was not disappointed. I took my partner there for his birthday. We were greeted warmly and by name as they were expecting us from the reservation I'd made. We were seated quickly at a candlelit table for two and given the option of still or... More

The Only is a great small restaurant on King Street in London. My wife and I have been popping in to this restaurant for years. Always good. Very inventive and unique. Food is locally sourced and the strive for primarily organic ingredients. Service always polite and professional. Meals arrive quick. Good if you are watching your time. But even better... More

For a few hours, I completely forgot I was in downtown London - steps from the Via and Greyhound stations. Great interior (although the hallway and facilities remain granny-like...leftover from an earlier tenant no doubt), interesting and original cocktails and a very good meal. Definitely the best meal I've ever had in London, Ontario, but also competes with any meal... More
