We had a very interesting evening at this restaurant. The food selection was left up to the chef, who provided us with a meal that was beautifully presented and was interesting and unusual ...at least for me. And it was fun to not know what you were getting next. The chef and his sous-chef worked incredibly fast to provide our... More

Eleven of us had a terrific meal here last Wednesday. The big group helps I think because this is tapas-style dining and we let the chef simply serve us. And he did a great job. I wish I could remember more of the details -- yes we had crickets... also a wonderful cabbage salad, gnuddi, sardines, catfish, and a terrific... More

A new chef / owner so was expecting something more than what I received. Was not overly impressed with the tasting menu. They did however serve us many more courses than what we were told. Most likely because we were drinking, many bottles of wine. Take the streetcar or walk. Our server said he was a Master Sommelier which was... More

Nathan Isenberg went down market when he opened up his own place. Don't judge this book by its cover. Nathan is a very accomplished chef and can make one swoon with his offerings. He's a master at teasing out flavours out of interesting local produce along with adventurous global flavours. For example,the huitlacoche soup is lick-the-bowl delicious. The patty pan... More

The Atlantic is located in the west end of Toronto (near Dundas and Dufferin) and is mostly frequented by locals. This is NOT a fast food place, nor is it very cheap, but they have an excellent, ever changing and very imaginative tapas menu, and a friendly, relaxed vibe. This small restaurant is the antithesis of any of the chain... More

It's homey and unpretentious, but that just highlights the qualities of the meal. Don't go if you're really hungry - perfection takes a while. Go before you're starving and enjoy the wait.

Atlantic is a tapas-style restaurant that offers many distinctive dishes on a changing menu. The kitchen takes some time to prepare many of the dishes but they're worth the wait. Go with good company and order some of the stuff you've never heard of. Like with many other tapas restaurants in the city you'll have to be prepared to spend... More
