Most amazing meal, service and ambience. This was a return experience and we will return again!
Great food sensational wine list!
Went with a couple of friends on a tip... was delicious!! Pumpkin dumplings and the cauliflower were out of this world yummy!!
Excellent food and creative menu. Nice dark interiors + small print menu make for squint-ful deciphering... bar upstairs has terrible service, but downstairs dinner waiter was super helpful. It is noisy and it is fun, yet the food compensates for all the other minor shortages. Try killer truffle dumplings and the to-die-for rib-eye.
the service was very good and staff seemed interested in our experience. the food was not subtly flavoured with too much sweetness and over use of truffle and truffle oil. the wine list was very good but the list of wine by the glass was limited. we enjoyed the shared dining approach, the varied menu and staff but the food experience relative to the cost was not great. i would only suggest this restaurant to people looking for a unique dining experience who value ambiance and vibe over food subtly or value, in other words going for trendy without a lot of refinement. one can get this experience for a lot less money at odd seoul or han moto.
given how booked this restaurant is however i would have to accept that my view is likely in the minority and thus there is likely no real incentive for them to change the menu.
on the positive side the desert was surprisingly good and we enjoyed the overall experience, even if the food was not the highlight.
hmm, 2000 characters seems a lot to expect from a review. i doubt that an average representative reviewer would necessarily write such a long review...........................................................................
Dailo is my favorite restaurant in Toronto. The food, service and ambiance are all outstanding and never disappoint. Highlight (as always) was the pumpkin dumplings and Trout. A must visit!
We had a great experience at Dailo. They were able to accommodate all my allergies with their tasting menu. Food was creative and delicious, and our server was amazing.
I decided to celebrate my 27th birthday here with my boyfriend and DaiLo did not disappoint. The overall experience was a very special one. We enjoyed the chef's choice tasting menu, especially the King Cole Smoked Duck Bokkeum and the Hakka Brown Wontons. Chef's XO sauce was so delicious, it left us wanting a bottle of our own to take home. The chef's choice menu has off-the-menu items as well, that were very tasty. It can be entirely catered to suit your tastebuds and dietary restrictions or you can choose to close your eyes and be surprised if you're more adventurous foodies (with no allergies) like us. I'd highly recommend going this route to get the most out of your dining experience.
The drinks menu had some neat options as well, so take a look into it while you're there - I really enjoyed how the flavours came together in the five spiced daiquiri.
Service was impeccable - our servers were friendly, attentive, well-informed and genuinely cared that we were comfortable with and enjoyed our food.
We will definitely be coming back to DaiLo and bringing our family and friends along too.
Highly recommend the tasting menu—$65/person but if you are adventurous and looking for a quality meal with a rich variety of options then you won’t be disappointed.
Servers are friendly and attentive and eager to accommodate dietary restrictions (we had a vegetarian at our table ). Each new course arrived with a different waiter and a detailed description. Lively atmosphere but not so loud that you can’t have a conversation. Lovely wall art and lighting.
Fantastic food and service! Our server recommended the octopus tacos, pumpkin dumplings with truffle sauce, and ribs with cornbread and slaw. Everything looked and tasted fantastic, though the portion of the tacos was very small for the price. All the servers who spoke with us seemed genuinely excited about the dishes and were great at recommending things. DaiLo is a bit pricey but it's a great place for foodies, a date night, or special occasion.
Excellent food. Very accommodating to vegan and gluten free issues. Great ambience
Fantastic service. Very attentive, polite and professional. Chefs pick highly recommended. food & service 5 star.
Very good experience!
We were a group of 7 who enjoyed our tasting menu on NYE. The food was amazing and so were the staff. We headed upstairs to the bar after for couple of drinks and had a great time. I would totally go back again to try other items and order a regular meal!!
New Years Eve, pre-party romantic dinner. Delicious food, appropriately priced, with prompt and knowledgeable service. It was clearly a very busy night, but we did not feel rushed at all. What more could we ask for?
Our NYE meal was unbelievably delicious. Every course had unique and very carefully put together flavours. We also had a great wine pairing.
The service and the food were excellent! Will go again!
Jeff was our server and assisted us greatly. He gave us a 1st class experience that is hard to find. Traveling from Boston, we had heard great things about Dai Lo. Jeff ensured that the experience exceeded our expectations. We will be back
Will definately go back again next time we are in Toronto.
wonderful and innovative food. loved the tasting menu. best value and variety.
Food was amazing, especially the lobster! Thank you for everything, service was also outstanding!
The entire evening was an epicurean delight. Will recommend it to our friends!
Everything was so amazing. Such great value for tasting menu. Fun night
Food was good but rather expensive.
Excellent food and service!! We loved the creativity and uniqueness of the dishes. We will be back.

Food is unbelievable and service is excellent. The whole staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Great experience.
Everything was delicious and lovely. The food was great and all the servers were knowledgeable and friendly. Always love coming here.
My boyfriend and I love DaiLo. I strongly recommend the tasting menu, the food is really good for the value.
Just go here. You won't be disappointed. I don't think it matters what you order, you'll be happy.
Food is always amazing, service is always impeccable!
Very nice atmosphere, and very knowledgeable staff on the food and wine list.
Exquisite food. Amazing service. Lovely decor. A perfect evening.
This was my second time going to DaiLo and this time we did the Chef's Choice - I mentioned I'd had the pumpkin dumplings before and the waitress made sure to put them on our menu. Food was amazing, really good value for money and a lot of food - everything was delicious. Wine runs at $60+ a bottle so keep that in mind for budgeting dinner. All in all amazing second experience and I will keep going back for sure :)
Awesome service - Jeffrey was amazing as was “D”. Food was amazing.
The fusion of french and chinese blends so surprisingly well. Very happy my server suggested a tasting menu since i was by myself. Every dish had they' re own characteristics and was executed perfectly. I can't praise this place enough.
This was our second time at DaiLo - it should be on everyone’s list of places to dine in Toronto - outstanding food - creative, delicious and beautifully plated. We cannot wait to return.
This was my second time eating at DaiLo. On our most recent time, we took good friends to try the tasting menu. They loved it! We loved it! The food and service is excellent. The servers are all knowledgeable, friendly and very professional. Eating at DaiLo is experiential - all your senses get activated. My wife and I love spending a night out at DaiLo. Many thanks!😀✌️❤️👍
Jeff, Michelle and the team were so accommodating and were kind enough to move our table of 3 at the bar to the dining table! Extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff and incredible food! Thanks Dai Lo!
Lovely dinner. Blew our minds away with the chefs choice. Well worth it. We were very full. The sensory experience was fantastic.
