I've been here a few times, after work. Often the place can be oddly empty. The menu here is limited, with the kitchen being not too talented. Most recently, the list of beers they carried was extremely limited. This place has a great location, and looks fine. But doesn't deliver on the promise.

We were a relatively large group (7 people) that the restaurant accommodated expertly and efficiently. Food was tasty and well prepared, service was very good and the manager was very attentive, ensuring that we were satisfied with our meal. Prices were reasonable. We would have enjoyed the experience even more if there hadn't been an even larger and very noisy... More

They also had a great patio which was what we were looking for! I ordered a mojito and it was tooo die for!! my hubby... More

We booked Peridot for our annual Christmas staff event. We had the place fo rthe entire afternoon, and they provided continuous hors d'oeuvres for us in their upstars lounge. The feed was very high quality and no one went away hungry. I would recommend Peridot for this kind of event.

I visited Peridot restaurant with my brother and mom as a way to celebrate Valentine's Day. We had an amazing time but the service was a bit slow. Either they were short-staffed or a busy Saturday evening. Either way, the ambience was amazing, the street view was great and the food portions very more then enough to feed my hunger.... More

The Balsamic Glazed Grilled Calamari and the Desserts were very good ! The Beer Battered Halibut seemed to have a batter that turned gluey and soggy internally as it cooled , which made it rather unappetising. Service was excellent and prompt and the overall ambience was great.

I live in the neighbourhood and despite walking past the restaurant on a daily basis have never had dinner there. That turns out to be a big mistake as our meal was excellent and I will go back there again soon. There was 6 of us there for dinner and everybody agreed that all the courses were very good and...

We had made reservations for this restaurant for 8:00. We wanted to attend an event downtown while we were in Toronto so we called and asked if we could come in a bit late. They suggested that we cancel the reservation and do a walk-in but we might have to wait 5 minutes or so. We arrived at the restaurant... More

We arrived at the time of our reservation, and it took two people to seat us. Our food was cooked to order and was tasty. The problem was with the service. During the course of the 1.5 hour that we sat in the restaurant, we were visited by 5 different servers. When they finally brought the bill, they had forgotten... More
