My first visit won't be my last

This restaurant was recommended to us by close friends of mine who have been going for years. It is located at Bloor & Royal York. They have been around since 1973. It was a relaxed atmosphere and wait staff very friendly. The food was amazing had the braised short ribs! Definitely going back!

The restaurant is located in Bloorview Village area of Toronto which is a nice little area in itself. Love this restaurant! It brings you back to the way restaurants used to be, waiters in black and white, bartender mixing up classic cocktails, piano player and the food! Delicious food with a great menu. I had the homemade gnocchi and the... More

Vibo is a BloorWest neighbourhood enclave that makes you feel like you're dining at the home of your favourite relative. Relaxed, intimate, friendly all with a relatively sophisticated menu and top notch wine list. There are always 3 or 4 fresh fish specials as well as other interesting nightly menu additions...after many visits we haven't found anything we didn't love,... More

I've been here twice and both times my company and I have enjoyed ourselves and the restaurant. Great for all smart casual to more formal occasions, it has an more and warm feeling, and... More

We went to lunch at Vibo as part of the Winterlicious program. Food was great, however, right from the moment we walked in and spoke to the host, it was like we were an inconvenience to them for coming to eat. One of the female staff was pleasant, however, the male waiters were dripping with attitude. Yikes, sorry that we... More

First time at Vibo. Rave reviews from family and friends so we decided to take advantage of a lunchtime Winterlicious meal this week. The male host/owner? was unfriendly and almost unwilling to merge our two parties of 2 into a party of 4 (both with reservations at the same time). The wait staff were OK, the lady on at lunch...

The octopus was great but I have no words to describe the tenderloin. Top five place I have ever been to. Went for winter licious and a price of 35 was great for the quality of food. The wait staff was great, Zsolti was a pleasure to deal with. No wonder this place is top 50 in Toronto. Definitely will... More
