A word from Mideastro Yorkville
Mideastro is a bolt from the blue, er, Vaughan. Mediterranean fusion, Middle Eastern Plus. Chef Benny Cohen is wonderfully brash: He shows just why the Middle East is the spicemeister of the world and he mixes traditions with élan. Fish cocktails are glasses of chopped tuna-tabule salad mixed with different liquors. Couscous, the ME’s fave starch, is handrolled to perfection matched with seafood, drenched in a rich, winey sauce. And there are no meatballs in town to rival the spicy kufta, ground lamb and beef under a foccacia lid with hot yogourt and tahina sauce.

Diner Reviews
  • "Menu changes always include innovative food and flavour combinations such as scallops and shrimp in a rich Middle Eastern broth, and salad of crisply fried goat cheese balls with mini vegetables, red lettuce and a dash of appetite-awakening vinaigrette. Service is helpful, friendly but never intrusive. This sommelier knows his stuff."

  • "Being a fan of mid eastern cuisine I was excited to try Mideastro, Yorkville. A few friends recommended it highly. I went with little expectation as everyone has different taste levels. From the minute we walked in and met our waiter Sean, we were impressed. The evening kept getting better as it went on. From clean, elegant, interesting, knowledgeable, delicious and friendly in every way we became fast fans of Mideastro and will be sure to return as well as try the Thornhill location."

  • "Needed a neighborhood restaurant open for a late dinner with my wife and son. Though inside décor was inviting, we chose do dine outside and enjoy the balmy weather. Interesting menu. Chef was very accommodating in meeting my wife's special dietary needs while still providing a great dish. Everything fresh and flavorful. Sea bass among the best we've had anywhere. Excellent lamb. Though kitchen officially closed at 10p, they stayed open beyond to allow our son, arriving late from a business meeting, to dine with us. Couldn't ask for better accommodation, service and cuisine. Can't wait to go back on our next trip to Toronto! Thanks for a great evening."

  • "We love course experience at Mideastro. We went last Saturday for summerlicious. Small appetizers but delicious warm bread and dips to make up for it. The entrees (we both had the sirloin) were purely outstanding!!! Desserts were a bit small but thinking back, we left full. Great place, we'll definitely be back!"

  • "Lovely spot - i think when you walk in, you have a certain impression about what it's going to be like - you might think it's going to be ok - but then - the service and the food takes over and WOW - total home run. Kudos to all involved!"

  • "The food was delicious! our service, was less then stellar..... very slow, not attentive, and impossible to pay the bill. We would go back for the food with the hopes that the service will be better."

  • "Was anxious to try this restaurant as menu offerings/descriptions sounded wonderful, but was disappointed in lack of flavours. Three of us shared the entire Summerlicious menu, so it was a good way to try a number of different dishes which we noticed were also on their regular menu. Our favourite was the carmellized onion/eggplant dip that came with the warm bread. It was deliciously flavourful. The other menu items were okay, but unremarkable, although attractively plated."

  • "All 3 of us in my party enjoyed the exceptional food and excellent service, very much. Our very friendly and attentive server also had a wonderful combination of raw veggies and greens for my raw/vegan boyfriend. The summerlicious menu is so good, deciding among the mains was difficult :) Every dish we had was delicious starting with entres. Me being a dessert person and being very particular about the last course, loved both my dessert and my friend's, which I had to taste. It was a very pleasant dining experience for all of us and we will definitely be back soon. Thanks!"

  • "Ate at Mideastro for summerlicious dinner and was initially skeptical as the summerlicious menu was limited though turned out to be a delicious surprise of fantastic flavours. My boyfriend and I ordered different items from the menu in order to try as much as possible and every single item was fantastically scrumptious. The ingredients were fresh and truly authentic dishes with a twist. I am still salivating thinking of their food and will surely be returning to try dishes from their full menu. The staff was pleasant and friendly, with the owner coming to say hello as he was extremely friendly and pleasant to speak with. Overall I am very content that I tried this restaurant and will be returning in the near future."

  • "Me and my husband dod reservation for 5:30 to the restaurant. As soos as we walked in there was no music and only one couple in the restaurant. So it is already was't really warm atmosphere. The air conditioning was very strong so my husband went to the car to get me extra jacket. We asked to bring twmperature down so it was cold on and off. The structure of the restaurant is like a long corridor and kitchen right at the end of it. We were sitting in the middle so i felt that waiters constantly were going back and forth. Not very nice feeling. All waiters were guit nice and friendly. The food I had very fine. My husband did not really enjoy his food. Meet was over cooked, he got potatoes loaded with mayoness, kind of discusting for such"

  • "We were celebrating a business venture with new clients and chose this restaurant for its location. We were all pleasantly surprised by the variety and selection on both the wine and dinner menus. The food, wine, ambience and service were all outstanding! I am definitely looking forward to more dinners at Mideastro soon!"

  • "Highly recommended, from our server who was extremely knowledgable to the amazing creations that we've ordered, Chilean sea bass and Lamb T bone were mind and pallet blowing dishes ! Paired with a glass of white and a glass of red, it was exceptionally grand ! Tasty cooled Grappa with our dessert plate, sweet sweet chocolate that makes you want more. Even the 3 dip and baguette left us craving another one of those!"

  • "I wrote a review for TripAdvisor about the restaurant and said it was over-priced, the entrees were mediocre at best. There were five of us, my sister-in-law is very knowledgable about wines and we had two good bottles of wine. The maitre d' was intrusive and overbearing, urged us to have the tasting menu. Our appetizers were good. The positives about the restaurant: nice decor, we were able to stay at the table chatting for a long time."

  • "A last minute reservation, a lasting impression! My boyfriend and I absolutely loved Mideastro Yorkville. Sunday, 8:30 pm - pretty quiet, a few tables inside and 1 group on the patio. The ambience was great and the decor was the right amount of sophistication. We were promptly seated and the waiter wasted no time coming over and offering beverages! We were told all the daily specials in a timely manner and with great detail. Staff was knowledgeable! Served warm olive bread and 3 unique dips to start! Apps were delicious, amazing presentation *Ahi Tuna, Ceviche & Mushroom/Goat Cheese Salad* Mains exceeded expectations *Lamb Duet & Kufta* Both dishes cooked to preference. Dessert - Chocolate YUM! A+ plates Service - Phenomenal! "

  • "All the staff are very courteous, friendly, respectful and accommodating. They really know their menu and able to explain/recommend them to us very well. I love their eggplant spread/dip on their bread, which I would agree that they should have them sold in bottles. Their shrimp falafel and paella is very delicious and none that I've tasted before. Lastly, their cast iron ribeye is too die for... Very nice presentation, very tender, tasty and grilled/cooked just right. Prices are worth the food you'd be spending here."

  • "If you would love to try something completely different for a real foodie then take a trip around the Mediteranian ! From Portugal to Morocco and every place in between! The food is amazing Great knowledgable staff work there and can help pair the wines that are also from the region! This is a must visit spot"

  • "this is a relatively unknown Yorkville restaurant we have been to a number of times. it is a little off the beaten track...but very close to the four seasons hotel. It is far superior to most of the other Yorkville restaurants and offers diners who want a high quality meal without the usual hassles of yorkville "

  • "My fiance and I are regulars at MidEastro Yorkville and love it for the consistent great food and service. We even had our engagement party there last year for about 30 family members and they tweaked their menu exactly to our specifications. All of our guests were so impressed with the quality of the food and everyone was very happy with their meals. My fiance and I were there again over the weekend, just us two for dinner, and they just changed their menu. It's absolutely delicious and I'm so happy they added some seafood options. We will be coming back again and again."

  • "We really enjoyed dining at Mideastro. The service from beginning to end was fantastic. The food was creatively constructed and presented and, best of all, was absolutely delicious. Lots of interesting wines from everywhere around the Mediterranean, which made it someone unique (we ended up going with one from Israel which paired very well with our food choices). Price was just right too. All in all we would definitely recommend Mideastro to anyone and we will certainly be back!"
