The food here was outstanding. The restaurant itself was outstanding. The service was prompt and friendly. They tended to our every need. The staff ensured our visit was memeorable. They gave us free desert at the end. Wonderful experience. The only downside is the restaurant is a bit pricey, but definitely worth it.

This is definitely not a bar and grill in what I consider bar and grill, this is a dining experience. Recently in Toronto for a conference, we took the opportunity to eat at this excellent restaurant. We had the tasting menu and the beverage pairing. They do know what they're doing here and everything was matched perfectly. Fabulous food and... More

My family and close friends enjoyed a lovely evening at Splendido last night. Service was attentive and the ambience was perfect to mark a special occasion. How nice to enjoy conversation unhampered by loud background music. Also, the tables are generously spaced so that you are not too close to other guests. We enjoyed "The Menu" which consisted of about... More

Unbelievable dining experience!.. We went for a testing menu which means 7 courses and you have NO idea what they are. It's totally a surprise. And you also can do a wine pairing if you wish.. We had a wonderful meal and service was PERFECT. Don't expect to pay less than $200-$300 for two people but that's why it calls... More

Went with the whole family for a significant birthday, did the full tasting menu, and really enjoyed it - most of the dishes were really excellent - the foie gras, the amazing seafood starters, the cheese and the desserts leap to mind. Some a bit stodgy and ugly - the sweetbreads for example, and some a little silly - a... More

We enjoyed an impeccable Sunday Brunch at Splendido! the food is absolutely fantastic, fresh and styled beautifully. I highly recommend them for a classy brunch in downtown T.O. The first course (also known as the "spread") includes an array of fresh cheeses, preserves, perfect pain au chocolate, scones, whipped cream cheese (aka= heavenly!) and divine Westphalian Ham! Don't order your... More

I was looking for a place to have dinner with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and a friend recommended Splendido. I confess that I wasn't sure about the menu, there were only 2 choices of tasting menu's, but based on the recommendation, we made a reservation and had dinner there last week. I made the reservation online, and... More

Hats off to a revitalized Splendido. I've always loved this restaurant but it's new and improved self is a superb gastronomical experience. First the venue itself - I don't know about anyone else but I'm tired of restaurants that jam the maximum number of tables next to one another so that you're sitting cheek by jowl. And if overcrowding isn't... More

This restaurant reminds us of Per Se and The French Laundry in terms of the gastronomical experience. You must try it once in your life! We shared an 05 red wine that we brought in to compliment the 5 course meal offered. The sommelier was well educated and quite approachable. Hats off to the team at Splendido!
