Two of us just happened to google restaurants in Westboro as we happened to be here and had a few hours to kill before going to the airport. What a great decision. The menu wasn't overloaded and the food was just tip-top. Possibly the best food I've had in North America for a long time and unlike US restaurants the... More

Found this gem on the way to the airport when we had a little time to spare before our flight. Walked through the door at 1730 with no reservation but were made welcome by the staff and over the next hour or so ate what was probably the best meal I've ever had in Canada, and I lived here for...

Good food and service but very noisy - not a place to go and have a conversation. Atmosphere is very chrome and glass with lots of hard surfaces which accounts for the noise. Also some tables very crowded.

We have been to Gezellig on a number of occasions. Sunday brunch being our favourite, diner definitely the least. We decided to try lunch when we both had a day off together. What an amazing meal! We had the wine pairing and two plates from a large selection on the menu. All four of our dishes were delicious and we... More

This was the first time at this restaurant. Very simple and inviting decor. We started with crab cake and mussels and both were excellent. Then scallops and steak. My scallops were very good - you don't get a ton on plate but very tasty and beautifully presented. The steak my husband had was great - tried a bite and was... More
