A word from Nyood Restaurant
Rooted in tradition yet inspired by the contemporary, Nyood Restaurant is a celebration of food as it was intended to be experienced, juxtaposed against the grandeur of a baroque inspired space. The seasonal and communal cuisine of executive chef Stephen Ricci highlights the beauty found within simplicity. Each dish can be shared or solely enjoyed, paired with a signature cocktail, an elegant glass of wine or a hearty craft beer.

    I had some friends visiting from Boston and I wanted to show them what Toronto had to offer. Unfortunately the service and the food was disappointing. We were the only people in the restaurant when we arrived and it took 20 minutes to receive drinks. During the meal, we were not approached by the server for more drinks. However, the server was very nice. The ribs were good but the portion would not feed a small child. The steak was not cut well so there was a lot of unpleasant excess fat. The halibut was decent. The pizza had very little toppings but was good for filler. On a positive note, the atmosphere was pleasant and the decor was great.

    My husband and I went there for our anniversary dinner - all I did was add a comment to our open table reservation that it was an anniversary dinner. We were greeted with a Happy Anniversary welcome at the door by the host and as soon as we sat down we received complimentary sparkling wine from our server to celebrate. This was truly the best service we had at a restaurant in a while and the food was great!

    This is the second time that I have been to Nyood after my initial visit blew my tastebuds away! Unfortunately the second time was a slight let-down. The wait staff were once again friendly and attentive, but this time the food wasn't as good. The flavour and size of the chicken drumettes had changed and they tasted like chicken wings from a pub little to no seasoning. We also ordered ravioli which was under-cooked (however the replacement was perfect!) On the plus side, the beef short-ribs and turkish flatbread were both amazing and the wait-staff were very apologetic about the chewy ravioli. Gorgeous decor too!

  • Most Interesting Menu
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/12/2013
    We had a short list of 4 restaurants for Summerlicious 2013 and chose Nyood because it had the most interesting menu. We both enjoyed the fried oyster first plate and could have eaten more. The oysters had a nice crispy coating, although we both agreed that the pieces could have been bigger and juicier. The scallops were excellent; extra-large, seared until crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. We will definitely go back for this dish. The buttermilk marinated chicken had a crispy coating but the meat was a little mushy. Overall, the food lived up to our expectations and the service was friendly and attentive. We give Nyood a thumbs up.

    This was our second visit. The first visit didn't go so well, and I wrote about it. They invited me back, and now they have a new chef. The new chef, made a whole lot of difference, along with service that was very enjoyable. Traditional breakfast: Tasty, there's no other way to put it. Burger: Also very delicious. We'd go back.

  • Such a disappointment
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/17/2013
    Restaurant recommended by friends. Upon browsing the website, we were intrigued. We arrived to find great decor. The menu wasn't as advertised on website - now sharing menu. Don't mind but wasn't what we were in the mood for. Cocktails tasty esp. argh I'm a pirate. Server was MIA for long stretches, not bothering to check in, refill our sparkling water/ask if we wanted drinks. Food arrived in a disjointed way, so one of us finished long before others got theirs. Dishes delivered by different people, so when we asked server about ribs that took over an hour, he had no clue.Food we got was lukewarm and largely flavourless, overcooked and salty. The restaurant was nearly empty, so a crowded busy night could not be offered as an excuse.

    Went to Nyood for Mother's Day brunch with my parents and grandmother. Everyone enjoyed their meal, the service was great, and then even accommodated us by turning down the music a bit when we asked. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

    Dined on 4/13/2013
    The service was very slow, but the servers were good when they showed up. We were at our table for 45 minutes before we got our drink order. We had a group of 8 and ordered a number of different items from the menu and they were all one more delicious than the next.

    Very good service, presentation and quality of food. Small portions for the price but you are paying for the venue. I was disappointed as many items on the menu had sold out for the evening at only 9pm.

    TimWVIP
    Dined on 3/9/2013
    For a place that's supposed to be pretty nice, that was probably the worst Eggs Bene that we've had. Eggs: We each had one that didn't run at all (almost to hard boiled status). Meaning, they knew they messed it up. Peameal bacon: Cold. Stone cold. Salty. Fries: They were ok, but again, not hot. Music for brunch = loud. It was turned off for a minute, and I thought, wow, that's nice. Then it came back on. It's brunch, guys. C'mon. Music for brunch = loud.

    The service was very attentive and friendly. The food was brought out in a timely manner and was very tasty and fresh. It would have been nice if the restaurant served regular coffee instead of just an americano, especially for brunch, but overall it was good. I would come here again.

    Pancakes are fantastic! Only suggestion would be to figure out how to split a bill into 2 parties. A two-person $75 brunch should cover the cost of a sub-total on the bill.

    This was a disappointing experience. The food was great, but the service was slow. The place is loud, so loud you can't have a conversation without yelling yourself.

    My girlfriend were supper excited to try this restaurant for winterlicious. The food was terrible. We had short ribs which so hard we all had a hard time cutting into the meat. For dessert we had the cheesecake which is a simple dessert. The crust was so hard you could cut into base to the cheesecake. My friends and I will never go back what a waste of money.

    Brunch was excellent - had the traditional brunch and my cousin had the egg white omelette. They were just amazing. Services was great too but a little slow. Could be this is the first day that they had brunch service and has only two servers. Will def go back again.

    Went to Nyood on a Wednesday night so not overly crowded or noisy. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was very attentive. Found all the dishes we ordered delicious and plenty to share amongst our group of 3. I would definitely go again.
