Everything was absolutelyEverything was absolutely fabulous. We tried the tasting menu and loved the food - extremely creative and tasty. Each course was better than the last.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely a foodie place,Definitely a foodie place, designed around small plates to share in the tastings. Some of the notable items were
the peanuts with kale, the beets with ricotta, oysters with fresh horseradish, and the bison short ribs.
Wonderful room, although I was a bit disappointed that we did not get a table by the birch bark. An
exceptionally clean restaurant -- floors, tables, washrooms -- care in every aspect of the restaurant
operation. The wait staff are very competent and we chose the Cabernet Franc from Peninsula
Ridge, which was outstanding. A bit pricey with the markup, but outstanding.
A special occasion place, and a great place to take visitors especially Germans who would appreciate
the Canadiana aspect of the room and food6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at Keriwa CafeThe menu is very different and the flavours of each dish are too. Very creative use of unusual ingredients. Especially loved the venison and pork belly "snacks" . Costs are on the high end but well worth it because of the food! The only exception is the cheese plate - 3 very small pieces of cheese for $30 is a bit too high!!! Service was very friendly, knowledgeable and good, ambience is quite pleasant - very comfortable seating. A lovely neighbourhood restaurant for a special night out.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMKeriwaGreat vibe, service and, most importantly, food. One of the best spots in town in terms of the all-around experience. Go.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing foodGreat parkdale addition. Food was spectacular and rich. Just don't come too hungry and check the menu because there several sides to share, but only four mains.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat aboriginal-fusion cookingExtremely tasty, albeit short menu. Everything on it is very well done. Flavourful; great for sharing. Go as a group of 4-6 to really enjoy all the menu's features. Not to be missed.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWill return even though theWill return even though the kitchen lost our second courses and had to wait over an hour. Food was amazing. will recommend to friends5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMKeriwa cafeSuch a shame that the exceptional food, excellent service, charming ambience are all ruined for us by the deafening noise level. An exhausting frustrating evening shouting at each other and still barely hearing -- over SUCH brilliant food

I eat out a lot and so while I love food, it takes a lot for me to feel like I've eaten something exciting. One of the best food experiences I have had in a while in Toronto and well deserves to be on food accolade lists. Everything smoked was very well executed and a highlight was the smoked duck carpaccio and "bacon" on the pappardelle main dish (a fantastic dish). Venison sausage starter was also highlight of the 4 excellent starters we tried. Really talented chef and happy I tried this. I also like the casual vibe.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is excellent, weThe food is excellent, we enjoyed each and every dish. In fact we wanted to lick the plates...sooo tastey. Unique, cooked to perfection, nicely plated. Chef served the appetizer as it was a birthday occasion, very nice touch and we appreciated the detail. Service was good - waitress forgot a dish, not a big deal but her enthusiasm around the food did not match the quality of it ultimately...I think she could have done it more justice.2/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
