Toroli is a tiny gem of a restaurant in the plateau area of Montreal. The restaurant sits on a tiny side street 1 block in from Avenue du Mont-Royal E, and the façade is whimsically painted like the black and white spots of a Jersey cow. The interior is a single small room that seats only about 12-16 people. The... More

A small and quaint place, where the chef receives you almost in his home. The food is interesting and has an authentic Japanese influence. My husband and I loved it all 3 x we went!

I should say that most of the food had good flavors. The reason I am rating it very low is for: Service is terrible. First it's not where you can expect service. It's a tiny store with 3 to 4 tables and 1 waiter who is slow. The menu is thus very small. You either take what's there or that's... More

We were wary to walk in to this petite restaurant last night and see only one other couple having dinner. But my husband said he had heard wonderful things about it and we wanted to try something new. Well, it was a great decision because the food was superb from the fragrant seaweed and spinach salad, to the tofu soup,... More

We visited this restaurant in search of a romantic dinner to cap off our weekend trip to Montreal. It was a pricey meal, but in such a small venue it feel like a private dining experience. The dishes were delicious and intricately plated by a chef who clearly is very invested in his restaurant. Service was pleasant and personable!

Although we generally are not fans of fusion restaurants, this restaurant proved us wrong. While some complain about the small size of the restaurant, we loved the unsuspecting facade and cozy interior. The decor is Japanese minimalism which is very appealing and elegant. The service was above and beyond, truly excellent. And the food....wow! We love fine dining and have... More

Unsuccessful in our attempt to find Toroli on our first night in Montreal, we were so happy that we found it the night after. It's a very small (16 seats) and unpretentious place, easy to miss because of the fact that there is no huge sign in the front, and the exterior is painted black and white like a cow.... More

We made a reservation here based on all the great reviews here and on other sites. It's in a neat little hip area very close to the Mount Royal metro stop. The only negative was actually trying to find it. The first time we walked down the side street it's on we walked right past it as there is no... More

Dont expect your typical sushi joint here. I will only say that the finesse and quality of the meal was superbe. My wife and I had different dishes as had diff tasting menus. The top dishes were the foie gras ( incredible ) and the cod for me while my wife enjoyed her seafood soup. Tiny resto that deserves the... More
