I always love to go to this kind of restaurants but not many are there. Knowing that, it's always good to enjoy a delicious meal when it's prepared fresh from the farm. As short as i could put it, It is what it is! As...More

Very reasonable price considering the food is cooked by 2 celebrity chefs who are usually in attendance in person, not just in name! 1 menu for the whole restaurant, served "family style". More than enough food for sure! Wines are reasonably priced. Loved it!

At the risk of making this place overly popular, this is the best restaurant overall in Toronto, IMO, other than Lai Wah Heen in the Metropolitan Hotel. They have a $49 prix fixe nightly and they post the menu the sunday before. You have to...More

Definitely a foodie delight, great food. Ambience trends towards noisy, not particularly upscale, with friendly service and a good vibe throughout restaurant. The menu is a set menu, so make sure you check it on line before making reservations.

Had one night in Toronto and this recommendation was perfect. Food was amazing - they were incredibly accommodating to my colleague who has a gluten allergy. Our waiter Marty made the night with his attentiveness, passion and humor. Highly highly recommend!

East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that

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,
