    We found this restaurant via Open table given we have been living in Mississauga for almost 20 years. We drove by this location a few times but never tried. So, here we were on a Thanksgiving night where no one in the family wanted to cook. The restaurant is indeed quite big, large patio area, bar/lounge section and dining room. Chairs and tables were comfortable. There were only two wait staffs in the entire dining room area. They were very efficient, but not overtly friendly. They did their job and no complaint. The food was surprisingly good and the portion was very generous. We will return for causal family dining. The grilled calamari was well prepared!

    Dined on 8/15/2013
    I thought the restaurant was good but had some elements that were just disappointing. First of all our waiter was very bored. He looked like he really tried to be polite but looked like he did not want to be there. I ordered the Escargot and they were delicious. The Veal Marsala was very disappointing: the veal did not look appealing and - there was no taste. I added salt and pepper and nothing helped. The veal was not very tender and there was a lot of gristle. My two friends had the roasted veggie salad with goat cheese and found the dressing overpowering. I would recommend this restaurant but definitely try something else and stay away from the meat.

    We had a family of 7, everyone's meal came out at a different time. Mine came out last and I just had Veal parmigiana. By the time my meal came, everyone @ the table were pretty much done their meals. I ate a few bites and took the rest home, so that the remaining table did not have to wait for me to finish. We were here the year before, with a bigger party of guests and felt the service and food was much quicker. We will most likely go back again, since we did enjoy the food. Possibly they were short cooks in the kitchen or it was just bad timing.

    Large patios are hard to find in Toronto - this one is a gem! Not only is the patio spacious, but it is sheltered from the street with a beautiful canopy and tons of flowering plants. Because the patio was so great, I didn't expect the food to be good - but was pleasantly surprised - we all loved our meals. This will be our new summer hangout spot.

    I loved the relaxed feeling of the place and the soft music in the background set the mood. The Calamari was done beautifully even thou I asked being my friend is lactose intolerant and the waitress was nice enough to make sure not cheese or milk was added to the Calamari which was really nice of her to let the chef know. My friend was really impressed and I am sure we will be back. Service was great and fast. Very friendly atmosphere. I loved the patio even thou we sat in the bar area. Next visit we will enjoy the patio.

    Dined on 5/12/2013
    We visited on Mother's Day (which is supposedly the busiest day of the year) so it's a little hard to write a fair review. After a minor scare with the reservation we were seated fairly promptly. Service was fairly friendly, though not outstanding. Things also took a while but I'm sure this was due to the fact that the restaurant was packed. The food was sort of hit and miss: the Mediterranean Salad was excellent and the Caesar was quite good for only $5.95. The pasta dishes seemed to be bigger hits than the meat (the prime rib was underdone and the duck over) but the flavours were all good. Also the prices were incredibly reasonable. I've been before and I'll be sure to give them another go when things aren't as crazy.

    We went to open cork for mother's day dinner. I made reservations for 6 people and we were seated right away. The dinner was tasty, the place was quiet busy and full. It's not a fancy restaurant and people don't get dressed up there but it's a very homey place and the owner is very pleasant. We went for dinner at 5 pm and when we got to dessert time they were out of chocolate cake. Overall, we had a good time and would come here again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Enhance wine selection by the glass - one or two is not enough. Provide a wine menu instead of having customer ask "what type" and "what brand" and "how much?" Isn't that common sense? Also have market prices ready each evening included with the menu for fish dishes. Again, I HATE asking how much but always do so.

    I have been to open cork many times in the past 10 years. It has a very dynamic atmosphere and exceptional staff. Very seldom have i encountered an unpleasant staff. The food was great, yet to be disappointed with their service. I was late for my reservation for 5, we did call about the delay but were accomodated in a different area. As soon as the main dinner area became available for my group, the owner offered us the option of moving, however, we were ok where we were put. The wine list was great as well, perfect for a girls night out. Great place, will continue to visit.

    The restaurant staff are helpful and nice. The decor and furniture are a little bit dated. Noise level is good, quiet enough for an intimate conversation. We had the steames mussels and bruscheta for starters, they were both really good. The range of wine selection is good and rightly priced. The main course, however, is a little bit of a letdown. I ordered the Orange Roughy with rice/pilaf. The fish was ok but I don't really get what the sauce was about. Rice pilaf was a bit mushy. My wife got the 'surf and turf' which was supposed to be a medley of grilled seafood featured with swordfish steak. Unfortunatly, taste was bland. Overall, it's a good place to have a quiet dinner but don't expect too much of the food.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants but this was the first time I was disappointed with the food. I ordered the stuffed pasta with ricotta & spinach. It was very salty, pasta was too under cooked an unfortunately the server did not bring any bread for the left over sauce. By the time she came to check on us our meals were done and the sauce had already turned cold. I would not let this review deter anyone from going as their food is always top notch and very fresh, especially any of their seafood. I guess it was just an off day when I was there.
