A congenial, friendly place, easily accessible, with efficient service. A well trained staff, fully capable of recommending and serving well-cooked, delicious meals. The restaurant's meals are reasonably priced, and they have a respectable wine list. I thoroughly recommend it for a pleasant experience.

Great food- not stodgy or uptight! If you are on the Danforth or looking for a great place be sure to stop in.

I love the laid back atmosphere here,but the menu is a bit fancy for such a chill vibe. The service is great, and totally informal. This place is all about great food and a great time. There is a lovely patio as well, which makes for a great place to eat in the summer. The cocktail menu is very creative,... More

The numerous Greek restaurants along the danforth strip are not worth their salt. This place, however is. You will find a few Greek influenced dishes along side classic comforting fare that will please nearly any palate. Great service, delicious food and a small but well curated and reasonably priced wine list makes this romantic spot a total hit.

Lolitas has been an east side fave for years on the Danforth. We returned in December for a romantic evening. The ambiance was perfect for a dinner a deux. Subdued lighting, crisp white table cloths and the warm friendly service set us up to relax and enjoy. The food is not trendy or complicated but it's always authentic and satisfying.... More

We went here for a private party, and it was a fantastic venue. They have a great room in the back for groups of, say 10-20, and the staff is fantastic with groups. The food was very good (especially when you think of food for a group), and the service impeccable. The whole restaurant has a really nice vibe, with... More

This is a small quaint dinner on the Danforth, BUT, our food experience was not great. My girlfriends & I were there on Friday, Dec. 11th. There were 6 of us & we all had wine & dinner. Our orders varied & we were all disappointed with our meals...I ordered their Angus $19 burger which was NOT gourmet, the ceaser... More

I have gone to this restaurant several times and always had fantastic food. This night was really bad. The risotto special was crunchy and not cooked. many of our meals were very salty. The service is always pleasant and as I said, normally the food is great.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
