This place EXUDES energy and has great food and service.
It is in a very central location, what I consider to be the heart of Toronto, one of Canada's most vibrant cities.

Toronto is filled with excellent restaurants but if you are in the Yorkville area, look no further than this place. The starters were wonderful (charcuterie plate is great to pick from), but by far the most amazing thing I've had in a while was the mushroom risoto with (wait for it) a scrumtuous beef rib on top. The meat simply melted into little pieces to accompany eat bit of the awesome risoto. My entire table agreed that I won the "best choice" main. Our server was very knowledgable about wine and paired 2-3 for us with our starters and mains. Would absolutely return.
We ate upstairs which was a little crowded, so I wouldn't sit there for a romantic meal or a private business meeting. If you want that plenty of other places to choose from in Toronto. This is a place to enjoy food, wine and service!

It was a special occasion - my daughter's graduation at University of Toronto and I wanted to meet her closest friends of four years and take them to lunch. We had to wait a long time in a phone-booth sized foyer to be seated, but it was worth it. Our corner window table looked out on the busy streets of Yorkville and into the even busier restaurant. Busy as it was, we were lavished with attention from the excellent staff. The dishes we shared and those we didn't, the wine, the service was all outstanding. What makes this cramped and potentially chaotic restaurant work is the expert staff who execute every detail with harmony and precision. A great experience, befitting a great occasion.

Had lunch here. The downstairs area was too crowded. Felt like I was seated next to the person at the adjoining table. Saw a couple walk out after they had been assigned a table because of this. One cannot talk without being overheard. The waiters and the food were good. Good place if you don't mind the crowding.

They help their friends get seats/service before they serve on you. This place is DIRTY. The food preparation alone will send you fleeing from this place. The menu items are simple and on the verge of boring. High prices, tasteless food, very poor service, all on Yorkville Ave. Be careful before going into this place unless you want to contract a food borne disease.Never again!!!
