Nyood reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A wonderful night at Nyood
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/24/2012
    I went there with a few girlfriends of mine on a Thursday evening. The atmosphere was great, the service was excellent, and I really enjoyed the food. I especially love the concept where it was a plate of food that you would share among a group of friends. We were greeted at the door and were also addressed when we left. It had a nice warm vibe about the place. The waiter also informed us about monthly events that happen here which definitely intrigued myself and my friends to come back. What an excellent experience at Nyood. You will definitely see me there again soon. Thanks for a fabulous experience!

  • This was our second visit
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/10/2012
    This was our second visit and I am sorry to say our last. While diners want attentive staff, the staff at Nyood's was overly attentative to the point of interrupting our conversation, not only by one server but it appears by the entire staff. No less than 4 or 5 people visited our table to find out if everything was fine every few minutes. The food was also a dispointment as only 3 of the 8/9 dishes we ordered were well prepared and deserved to the tried again, salad (cannot remember which one), the short ribs and the plain flat bread. The Sicilian eggplant, the crab cakes, panko encrusted chicken, the lamb flatbread and the others dishes were poorly seasoned and should be passed over. Ambience was very good.

    Dined on 3/9/2012
    We were shocked by the price! I had no idea it was a tapas restaurant when I booked because the menu gives no indication. The appetizer and main prices are exactly what they would be at any other restaurant in the neighbourhood and of the same quality of food/atmosphere, but because the dishes were so much smaller we had to order 2-3 times as many which meant our bill was 2-3 times what it would be had we gone anywhere else. Other tapas restaurants lower the prices of each dish so that patrons can affordably order extra dishes and be satisfied at the end of the meal. At Nyood, the food was definitely delicious, but not worth the price.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/3/2012
    My husband and I are vegan so of course we checked the menu on the web site before making our reservation. We found several small plates that looked suitable, but were pleasantly surprised when we ordered to discover how accommodating the kitchen could be. We enjoyed much more variety than we thought would be available, and the food was creative and delicious. Our server, Lionel, was outstanding.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 2/14/2012
    Pretty disappointing on all fronts. were not accomodating at all when we asked to be moved and the restaurant was 2/3rds full. The wine list is small and the selections are poor(a lot of stuff you can get at the LCBO vintages)and the one bottle we asked for they didnt have. There was a special prix fixe on which meant we couldn't order off the regular menu - also confusing as this was not mentioned upon booking. Did not allow us to order anything off the reg menu (how hard would this have been?). Service was all over the map - brought us the same course multiple times, had a team of different waiters coming by our table. Just not what you expect at this price point. not the restaurant I remembered it was.

  • Terrible Service from Manager
    Claudine
    Dined on 2/14/2012
    Food was very good, servers were great but manager's attitude was terrible. I called ahead and was told that we can order from regular menu for that night. I had to make sure as some of us have diet restrictions. It turned out this was not true so our party reluctantly ordered from the fix priced menu; we spoke to manager and he was unapologetic. Later on that night, to our surprise, there were dishes from regular menu coming out of the kitchen which we happen to be sitting by. We brought this to the manager's attention and again got an "oh well that's too bad for you" attitude.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/4/2012
    The food was sub-par in that it was bland and unimaginative. Higly misrepresented from the menu. Eg. The eggplant appetizer was anything but - it was tiny pieces of breaded, fried eggplant with a pea-sized piece of cheese and 1 diced cube of tomato. For the lack of flavour and the tiny portions, it was HIGHLY over-priced. I would never go back or send someone there. Just over on Ossington is Foxley with outstanding tappas cuisine, larger portions for much less money.

    I have been here on a number of occasions, LOVE IT. The food is incredible, love the decor, good looking mature crowd, and the music is GREAT old R&B/HipHop.. was a GOOD TIME. On the pricey side.. but I thought it was all worth it. The CLUB upstairs on the other hand... SUX. I would suggest not to bother, stay in the bar area downstairs, they move all the tables out of the way so you can dance later on.

    We found the food and service very good. The space was quite chilly when we arrived, but improved a bit over the course of the evening. We enjoyed the sharing plates, but found that the gaps between courses were a bit too long. We would have appreciated a coffee of latte at the end of the meal, but the coffee machine had just broken down.

    Second time I've been to this place and will definitely go again. Amazing atmosphere, a little on the noisy side on a Saturday night, but that's to be expected. If you go I would recommend calling and asking for David to be your server. He is simply the best person you could ever have. Pays close attention to every detail and extremely knowledgeable on everything on the menu. Asking him to order the meal was spectacular. Bravo Nyood, you've done it again.

    had dinner at Nyood recently http://www.nyood.ca/ The resto was airy, modern (interesting white bar & lights) with a decent tapas style menu; shared the wild mushroom salad (truffle oil made it a bit strong but quite tasty), manchego crusted mussels (a smidge on the salty side for me), mediterranean flatbread, ahi tuna + duck prosciutto flatbread. Food was good, fair portion sizes for sharing but still lacked something; was expecting different I suppose (seemed a little been there) ... rating: 6.5/10.
