John & Sons Oyster House - Downtown
John and Sons Oyster houseJohn and Sons Oyster house was nice. I love these little hideaways (and it is - nestled between construction and a more vibrant sign for a restaurant across the street).
We started with:
- Raw oysters, I prefer the pacific variety - small, less fishy and all awesome. They were wonderful. I especially liked their pear, shallot sauce (comes on the dish of hot sauces that go with your oysters)
- Lobster poutine, worth every dollar in the $23 that it costs. Fries were crunchy, lobster wasn't chewy.
- Crab cake, fantastic taste but it's tiny... Like blink and you miss it.
- Calamari, pass. Chewy and not a great hot sauce
- Indian Candy, be warned, not regular smoked salmon
- Baked rockerfella oysters, nothing to write home about11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters are freshThe oysters are delicious and fresh at John and Sons. The fries are excellent.

Good variety of mainly seafood fare, well prepared with fresh ingredients. Efficient, friendly service. Really fills a void in the downtown core seafood restaurant options.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gemStuck away in the financial district of Toronto it was a surprise to find it buzzing on a Monday night.
It has exactly the right atmosphere for an oyster bar. The staff are friendly and knowledgable about their product oysters.
It is a well planned menu and well executed.
