Must go

We were suspicious when we sat down but from the first drink it only got better with each course. Put your evening in Nathan's capable hands and you will be overcome with a new and fantastic evening. Be sure to make a reservation.

It was kismet that this dining experience would be sublime! With no dinner reservations on a Saturday night with good friends and scanning reviews desperately it looked like take - out when Nathan called from Atlantic asking if we still wanted to come for dinner. Did we? And then when a car pulled out of a coveted metered spot across... More

Absolutely unique dining experience. I guess the restaurant got a boost of popularity after being featured on the popular show 'million dollar review'. I booked it and I wasn't disappointed. Atmosphere is romantic, a bit dark though, but it works. Food was great, I asked him to make me a dish that was featured on the show and he did,... More

After seeing a show called the Million Dollar Critic and his review of the Atlantic Restaurant here in Toronto - we thought we would try this eclectic place out. Nathan the chef is this unassuming sweet gentle soul that obviously loves to cook for people. He made us some amazing food and kept us smiling throughout as he came out... More

Amazing, original and creative food. Friendly, humble host. I felt like we were guests in chef Nathan's home. It's an interesting concept. No menu, no set hours per se, no price list.... wait, what? My friend and I were greeted warmly upon arrival with an explanation of how things worked. A short time later our first course and paired beverage... More

My boyfriend and I went to The Atlantic for my birthday and had the most amazing meal. Chef Nathan made us the most delicious unique food and drinks made with local, ethically sourced ingredients. He does not have a menu or a price list - you pay what you like. He cooks incredible food and is redefining what a fine... More

Guaranteed to be unlike any experience you have ever had at a restaurant, the most liberating aspect of The Atlantic was the lack of any distractions other than the food itself (with the occasional beverage pairing). No front of the house looking over your shoulders, no menus to confuse things, no alcohol to muddy the waters, no prices to ponder.... More

This gem in the city of Toronto is worth every ounce of effort it takes to get here, wait for a table, change plans, convince your friends, etc etc etc. Chef Nathan, winner of the Million Dollar Critic, doesn't believe in menus or prices. You eat what he prepares for you (allowances made for allergies / restrictions) and you pay... More

Very interesting social experiment. The food was quite good, was served a little on the cool side, but very tasty and innovative. Wine was chosen skillfully. Would have liked to have tried the fourth coarse but the way dessert was offered I did not realize it was an option. Overall a very enjoyable experience. I would definitely return on my... More

After seeing Million Dollar Critic, our expectations were quite high. Nathan exceeded them. The chosen menu was unique, full of great flavours and textures. We were treated royally, from the beginning to end. can't wait to return for another culinary adventure
