I recently went to Splendido for my first time for a birthday celebration. The service was impeccable right down to a purse rest being provided. I loved the menu experience being offered as a tasting journey, no a la carte menu. It was exciting to not know what was coming next and each course was better than expected. They were... More

I never think to review restaurants in the city in which I live. But I love this restaurant. It is consistent with regard to amazing service and amazing food. It is quite expensive but worth splurging, no question. I would eat here all the time if I could afford it. The menu is modern, the wine list outrageously extensive and... More

I brought an international chef who was visiting Toronto for the first time to Splendido. Victor Berry, the chef, did not disappoint. It felt like he took care of us personally; however it was very clear that he wanted to ensure everyone at the restaurant was happy and felt welcome. The waiters were very professional, food had well balanced flavours... More

I have come here a few times with my partner and we have always left satisfied. Eating at Splendido is not similar to anything one could cook at home, I come here to be dazzled, the Chef, Victor is a creative genius and guests come to be entertained through their pallet. The service here is unlike anything else in Toronto,... More

The 'menu' is simply amazing. Prepare to dine on nicely presented delights. Each course was amazing and you will want to pull out your camera. You may be out of your comfort zone with the venison and sweat breads, but all of the flavours are amazing. Excellent service as always. Enjoy the aromas and the thought that has gone into... More

From the soft music to the relaxing ambience, from the perfect service to the creative and extraordinary food, everything was good. What else to say? I was there with my wife and we both are surprised that Splendido does not have a Michelin star. We chose the "smaller" of the two offered fix menus. We had plenty of delicious food.... More

We were taken here by my boyfriends friend. Great food. Great wine. I don't remember much about the wait staff, must've been good. Pleasant experience.

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
