I dined in Green Eggplant with my friends from Toronto. The place has many wards, but for those who know what the Italian cuisine is can't be recognized as real Italian. Good place, but nothing special. Rather for everyday dinner that for special occasions.

We were excited to have an early Christmas celebration with family and friends at the Green Eggplant. Our reservation was immediately acknowledged and we were seated at a nice table near the front of the restaurant. Boy, the place was packed...always a good sign in my books! Our hostess and server were just fine...not over the top...not standoffish either. The... More

Sunday November 9, 2014 - I have dined at the Green Eggplant with my girlfriends for many years. It has always been one of our favorite 'get-together' places. We have always had good service and excellent food. However, this morning my son and future daughter-in-law took a friend visiting them from Florida for a great dining experience and when their...

We often visit Toronto and a visit to The Green Eggplant is always a must. The service, ambience and food are just so good. On arrival you are met with very smiley waitress who soon finds a table for you. You generally have to wait 5/10 mins as the restaurant is always so busy (always a good sign). Once seated... More

Green Eggplant is a staple in the Toronto Beaches community. It's always reasonably busy and often pretty packed. The service is hit and miss, never rude but not always overly friendly or attentive. The food is good, the menu offers a good variety so there something for everyone. Nothing that I've eaten there really stand it as being exceptional, no... More

Other meals looked delicious but I picked the wrong item! The french toast comes as 4 squares of deep fried dough. French toast should never be deep fried. Bread sops up copious amounts of oil and when served in this lazy format, leaves one feeling as though a great heavy boulder is laying in their stomach. Impossible to consume an... More

This is not your regular Mediterranean restaurant the chef here loves to create amazing food and it shows in the taste of everything. The terrific flavors of all the food including the lamb kebabs make this place a must visit so if you're in the beaches area please do yourself a favor and stop by.

We got together for a casual family lunch on Thanksgiving Sunday and what a treat. The food was cruncy fresh, the portions admittedly enormous, the atmosphere friendly and fun if a little loud on the music front. This lovely place has local artists work displayed on the exposed brick walls, we were neither rushed nor held up. The bread basket... More

We got the tip have dinner at this little place on Queen St. East. The place was packed and seating was a bit tight but the food was great! The burgers were cooked to perfection and our waiter, I think he was from Albania, was the perfect blend of witty, charming and professional. This restaurant gave us a great impression... More

Went to this restaurant for lunch with a friend and her grand baby, the service was very prompt, the appetizer 's were delicious homemade dips and bread. I ordered the penne with chicken, it was delicious and there was plenty of it. My friend ordered the vegetarian and it was delicious and plenty for her and her grand baby. Very... More
