Sadly, the restaurant has closed. It's been locked for a week or so and suppliers can't contact the owner. The twitter account and facebook account have also been shut down.

Nice, laid back vibe with good service and great food. Something for everyone. Garlic hern knot appetizers are dangerously delicious

We did a bit of homework and the Only on King had great reviews in the past. I am not sure if it's under new ownership now, which might explain things. Our server was amazing - personable, great sense of humour and the right balance of can I make a suggestion and do you already know what you want. I... More

The last time we visited TOOK was shortly after it rebranded from The Only on King. We found the new menu to be disappointing and missed the formal entrées that always impressed. That all changed this past Labour Day weekend when TOOK hosted a steakhouse event with protein sourced from Sanagan's Meat Locker. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the... More

We have recently been to London visiting friends. One evening we went to this restaurant for dinner. What a gem. We were fortunate to be in London during their Food Day Canada celebration. So we had a fixed menu with many choices. The service was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. We started with warm marinated olives, which we all enjoyed... More

If you want a memorable dinner to celebrate any special occasions in your life, this is the place to go. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal and cocktails this past weekend in celebration of our sixth wedding anniversary. We have been coming to TOOK since our first wedding anniversary and never had a bad meal. I was especially... More

I love this place! The food quality is amazing, really nice hosts, interesting dishes you don't find anywhere else! I only wish they had more variety on their menu so I had more new things to try.

BW and I ended up at TOOK randomly after a Carly Rae concert on a Wednesday night. What a great choice. We shared everything on the table and were able to converse easily with the great service given. Not only was our entire meal delicious, 25% of our bill went to charity: A Taste for Life. We even went for... More
