We brought friends from NYC
We brought friends from NYC and England who wanted to try local food. Our server was most helpful with menu choices, and everyone enjoyed their dinners. The pre-dinner martinis were a hit. The one disappointment about the meal was a local wine, the red wine from Tawse, which was on the thin side, i.e., not particularly flavourful. We weren't able to impress our visitors with this wine. Our second bottle was an Australian red, which was much better. I rated the "ambiance" as "good" only because the restaurant seemed to be deserted that evening. I think that there were only 3 or 4 tables of diners, including ours.

Great for Easter Brunch
Great Easter brunch. This was our 3rd year going and never disappoints.

I like that everything is
I like that everything is sourced locally. The food was very good except the trout was a little overcooked.

The croquettes alone are worth it
Earth was everything I had hoped it would be. I went there for a special dinner, and that's exactly what I got. Excellent food. Outstanding service. The croquettes alone were worth the visit. I will be going back.

I have eaten many times at Globe earth Rosedale. This was my first time at earth West. It was a Wednesday night and not very busy so it is hard to comment on the ambiance. However, the service was fantastic. Our waitress knew all about the different wines and made excellent food recommendations. The food, as expected, was delicious. I would definitely go there again.

Rosedale gem for Locavores
We tried Globe Earth for the Prix Fixe menu which was excellent value and good variety of choices. They have a focus on local (Ontario) products and wine with an excellent selction and lots of interesting and inventive combos, all preapred and presented very well. The service was prefectly attentive and good humoured. I enjoyed that the music was not too loud.
We would definietly go back for the a la cart menu and would recommend to friends

Great ambiance and lovely staff
Earth is a great restaurant . The staff are very nice there and make you feel right at home. We have been in winter and in summer - both are great times to go - the restaurant is well appointed and comfortable. I went just with my husband, although it would be a great place for a larger group. The food at Earth is nice and fresh and in many cases locally produced. A highlight of my meal was the homemade ice-cream sandwich. Well worth going if you are considering.

Great food, service lacking
Went for Summerlicious lunch. Food was excellent, had the smoked sturgeon appetizer, arctic char and dulce de leche ice cream sandwich. The appetizer was amazing, and the char was well cooked, although I found the fennel a tad overwhelming. While I was very pleased with the food, I found the service to not be the friendliest. They were not rude, but they didn't display the sort of welcoming feel that I would expect from a restaurant of that caliber.
Overall, I enjoyed the experience and would go again

THINK GLOBAL, EAT LOCAL...
Earth Rosdale Global located near Rosedale Subway station. Beautiful decor, romanitic elegant ambience makes this place a great place. Think Global, eat local.
Smoked Sturgeon 5/5
Sorrel potato salad, pickled onions, upland cress.
Smokey flavor of this sturgeon! The pickled onions balanced the flavors of the potato salad which inevitably complimented the dish
Hay Roasted Pork Tenderloin 4.5/5
Algonquin corn grits, savoy spinach, charred red onion chutney.
Perfect balance of sweetness with the corn grits,red onions to compliment the charred pork. The bland savoy spinach added balance!!
Pistachio Custard 4/5
Chocolate mousse, dacquoise, sea salt; smooth, savory, not overly sweet chocolate mousse! perfect all the way

The food was excellent -- both the presentation of it and the taste. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend for lunch and dinner, especially the interior courtyard.

Ate lunch here from the Summerlicious menu. The outdoor eating areas are very nice--you can get more sun out front or some peace and quiet in the shaded patio. The food was quite good, I had the chorizo pogo as an appetizer (with some nice coarse grain mustard) and the arctic char as my entree. The fish was delicious. Overall the service was prompt and attentive, and I would definitely consider coming back again the next time I'm in Toronto.

delightful memorable earth Rosedale
Outstanding. Local / Ontario centric, clean tastes & textures, lovely venue, class service. Appetizers: a cold zucchini soup that was light and substantial and silky; smoked sturgeon with tiny paperthin whimsical potato chips to complement it. Entrees: the most delectable beef, on a layer of fresh sweet peas; arctic char done to perfection. Desserts also truly excellent -- just coffee and dessert would be a grand treat -- but in my memory of this lunch the appetizers & main dishes totally stole the show. Clearly the chef is having real fun framing great ingredients to shine on their own merits. The chef's pleasure came through to the table & we were able to share it & that put the cap on the meal -- it was personal.

SO happy was introduced to this restaurant via Summerlicious - DELICIOUS!. Great treatment, service, atmosphere and absolutely scrumptious food. Will definitely be back for more. THANK YOU. The menu had options galore too!

Went here for Summerlicious, and I feel like this was probably the best value restaurant I attended for the festival, at only $25 for dinner.
It was a little odd that they tried to seat me at a different table when I had told them the other member of my party was already there, but the service was consistent, and they even noted I had forgotten my umbrella at the end of the meal.
The food was quite flavourful, even though some of the portions were off. Both the appetizer and entree were very good; the dessert was a little too sweet for me to finish (maybe it goes back to my point about portions?)
The ambiance is great, with a large variety of lights, yet still keeping a low-lighting environment.

Quality of the food was great
We enjoyed our experience greatly. The service was outstanding. The food manu was excellent. The quality of the food was excellent but it was a bit salty. Also the desserts were disappointing.

Bothe the key lime and strawberry "cheesecake" desserts were amazing.
Wonderful time had by all.

Earth was great. the food was first rate and service was much better than average. we could walk there so no issue with drinking and driving. makes for a perfect neighbourhood gem.

We went for our aniversary. Good food, good wine, good service. Music was all covers of songs but in a seedy vegas louge style. was kinda odd but not horrible. Something without words might have been a better choice. I will be going back, food was too good to pass up on again!
