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
  • "The food were presented well. The stroploin was fine. But the whole fish and spices were not my type."

  • "Service was a little slow at first, maybe because we sat outside. It took a while to get our drinks. But after that, service picked up, food was really good, and we had a friendly server so that helped."

  • "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"

  • "very loud pseudo jazz which we asked to turn down 3 times! we noticed another table also asked for the music to be turned down. people had to talk even louder to be heard over the music. The food was mostly good but due to above issues will not return or recommend"

  • "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 "

  • "watch out for expensive up-selling. Be sure to ask the cost of any non menu items"

  • "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!"

  • "Really enjoyed Mideastro. Variety of menu options but not an overwhelming amount of choices. Our waiter was terrific - friendly but professional. Great place to go when you want an excellent meal in a comfortable but sophisticated setting."

  • "This unique restaurant has excellent, caring, knowledgeable staff that want to ensure you have an excellent experience. They are friendly, kind, know the menu and have tasted it to ensure they are answering your questions accurately. I've now brought two guests and both times it was a fun, delicious experience. The food is fresh, prepared with spices and sauces that compliment each other! Simply Amazing! We've enjoyed lamb, quail, risotto, fish, and a variety of mouth watering appetizers. I'll be going again as there are many items I haven't tasted! There is an extensive wine list to complement your dinner. Mideastro is a one of a kind place! Enjoy! Most Happy Diner!"

  • "It was so nice to go to a restaurant that wasn't noisy, the food was great and that had great ambience. Also, the menu offered food that was presented and prepared "differently". We had a wonderful evening."

  • "Went for the 6 course tasting menu and was offered the set of 3 wines paired with the meal. Pairing was really nice. Wait staff topped up the second glass and service in general was impeccable from the front door to the end of the meal. Every course was something new, and we left STUFFED. (An unusual but welcome feat for such a fancy restaurant). Not sure about quantities on the regular menu, but I'm confident recommending the quality for sure."

  • "We had a wonderful evening with our family of 6 on friday night. We had one of the private booths (better lighting than the main restaurant). The waiter recommended the tasting menu - and the sommalier recommended pairing it with a wine tasting menu. Both were excellent and took the guessing out of choosing from their wide range of options. Nice range of menu options - and we added one or two specialties that were missing from the tasting. Never felt rushed and really enjoyed the evening!"

  • "I had eaten at Mideastro in Sept with 3 other friends and we all raved about everything, including the food. This time, with 3 other friends, only one of us said the dinner was really good. One person said it was average and I thought my meal less than average. The ambience and service were exceptional."

  • "My wife and I needed a restaurant close to our hotel as Toronto was frigid. So we took a chance on Mideastro. Amazing service, tasty and eclectic food and great choices for wine and liquor. Next time we are in town we will come back. 10/10!"

  • "This restaurant has one of the more expressive menus I have seen. We tried both soups and 5 appetizers. Each was better than the next. Try Duck Confit if nothing else. The Maitre d' and his staff were appropriately attentive, neither absent nor annoying, arrival and presentation of the dishes was wonderful. And the two of us walked away fully satisifed at $100 (we don't drink). This was a bargain. We will return."

  • "Wonderful food and atmosphere - unobstrusive service and amiable host. Good variety of dishes especially for Winterlicious. A nice change of pace from usual continental or familiar fare at all the other restaurants. Green P Parking next door is handy as well for Yorkville. Will be returning in future."

  • "My husband and I were very happy both times we dined at Mideastro on Yorkville. The food was first rate, and the service was prompt, cheerful, professional and attentive without being intrusive. You'll be well taken care of, and the food will not disappoint."

  • "We had the Winterlicious menu at Mideastro and unlike some of my past experiences of Winterlicious, the quality and experience was not compromised. Our server was amazing. It was my birthday and they gave us complimentary dessert wine during the desserts, which we loved! I have already recommended this restaurant to a few friends and I would definitely dine here again."

  • "It was the time me or my party of 5 had been. We loved! Service was great, food was great, the place looked wonderful. Pricey, but worth it for a once in a while/special ocassion. Not too many veggie options though :("
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Service was way too exaggerated/greeter pretenious, over-describing foods that were mediocre at best. Had the winterlicious menu where the shrimp falafels were over-fried, lamb/beef kafta was too oily, good flavor, but overspiced. The best part was the fig dessert. The ambiance was too dark - the lights above our table weren't working. The restaurant wasn't busy but the waiter felt compelled to sit someone right next to us. The waiter was nice, but too many other waiters kept coming up to us asking the same questions which made it really not enjoyable. One of them we couldn't even understand from lack of English skills. If you want a nice out on a date or just to have a good conversation, this is definitely not the restaurant for it."
