Description: Family owned Italian/Continental fusion restaurant. We have been a staple in the Yonge and Wellesley community for the past 13 years. Just recently we underwent a major renovation courtesy of the TV show Restaurant Takover on the Food Network. Ambiance is elegant and classy without being pretentious or stuck up. Our exceptionally-trained staff provide our guests with fast and efficient service while ensuring they feel relaxed and comfortable, never rushed. But most importantly, they make sure our guests feel welcome in our home.

We stopped in on our way to a performance at the Panasonic on a Saturday. Excellent brunch. Most items come with some nice greens, a bit of fruit (melon/canteloupe) and either home fries or toast. Food is all good (we had Eggs Benedict and an egg white omelette). Service is excellent even when busy. There are some small complimentary muffins,... More

On our trip we had an overnight stay in Toronto. So my husband and I had to look for a place for dinner. On strolling down Yonge Street we came upon this restaurant and decided to give it a chance. We were not disappointed and had an absolutely delicious dinner. The service was very friendly and we enjoyed this evening... More

The stuffed chicken here is the best I've ever had! The service is awesome, the bartender gave me the perfect amount of attention and is very nice and professional. He recommended the chicken and it was so great I will definitely be back for more! I recommend this place if you're looking for a cozy environment with excellent food and... More

The food wasn't so bad, but the service was terrible. Our waitress would disappear so it took forever to order. if you are looking to impress someone, this is not the place to go.

Business week in Toronto...Busy times, but still looking for some good, budget-balanced restaurant. Attracted by Stella Artois-sign on the wall, we entered with 4. Not crowdy but continuous exit and entering of people, so we got our table immediately. Enthousiastic 'maitre de restaurant'. Not overwhelming menu-card, but good choice of starters, pasta, meat, etc. We had a big plate of... More

This place was located a block away from where my wife and I were staying during our recent trip to Toronto and we became fairly frequent visitors. I am embarrassed to admit that the first thing that attracted me to it was the Stella Artois sign- shallow borderline alcoholic that I am. We found the staff there to be very... More

Whenever we make the trip to Toronto from Muskoka we make a point of dining at the Brownstone where we are assured of good food, attentive staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Favourites include the seasonal pizza, butternut squash ravioli and the spring rolls. The bistro is in a great location, has a large patio and is a great perch from... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our recent trip to Toronto and we were thrilled. The staff and management were so friendly and the atmosphere fun and vibrant. The food! The food was exceptional and the menu extensive - but not too big.

I was taken here for brunch on a Saturday morning when visiting from the UK on business and had one of the nicest benedicts ever! My colleague had an omelette and was just as pleased. The fresh fruit was also excellent. Service was very friendly and attentive - helped I think by the fact that my host was obviously a... More
