About

This restaurant is permanently closed. EDO was first opened at its original location in 1986 in mid-town Toronto, serving authentic Japanese cuisine. Although sushi became the most broadly known and accepted part of the menu, prides itself on its full offering of traditional Japanese flavours done in a contemporary style. EDO also conducts cooking classes, which include the making, history, etiquette and culture of sushi. Chef Specials include Oh-Makase (Chefs’ Choice) with advance notice and Kaiseki for special occasions.

Summerlicious menu was exquisite! Food very elegant, had many layers to it, adventurous combinations. Comparable to the high end fusion places in Vancouver. Have not tried their regular menu, not sure how it measures up to the summerlicious one.

Food was good. I recommend kobe meat sausage and marinated chicken. The assorted sushi was delicious and unique, the taste is different from other sushi locations I have been to.

Service is good, nothing to complain about. I felt bad for informing the person who is not a server than we were ready to order.

EDO is quiet and romantic, with a small candle in the centre of the table. Great for dates. Food is delicious, sushi is incredibly fresh.

Nice Summerlicious menu, excellent value at 5 courses for only $35 per, excellent Japanese Chef ensures quality and presentation are top notch, a real gem at a good price

We were there for the first time, trying the Summerlicious menu. The food was awesome! Delicious and creative. Things like a delicious Japanese version of Caesar Salad; chicken breast in seven spices - buttery soft and perfect; a dessert of black sesame seed "soup" with vanilla ice cream. We'll be back.

Great tasting food.
Tried the tasting menu. Portions were small, but by the end of the five courses, a good amount to not over-eat.
Clearly understaffed the night i visited, but overall a great experience.

It is unforgivable for a higher end sushi resto like EDO to overbook so dramatically and accept unlimited pick-up orders, with little regard for in-restaurant customers. While I understand Mothers Day is a busy evening, there is no excuse for a reserved table only coming available 45 mins after the confirmed reservation, and the meal still not have being fully delivered to the table after another 90 minutes. 2.5 hours after we entered EDO, we asked for the bill even though not all our sushi had come.
I've eaten at EDO many many times, and two things were very troubling: (1) total disregard for customers, and (2) the quality of the sushi we did have was way lower than it has been at any time I have been there. The sushi was unimaginatively presented, looked like a rushed all-you-can-eat quality tray when delivered, and was wholly unimpressive. Unacceptable at this price point. Staff tried but were simply overwhelmed The owner better shake things up as there were many very upset patrons there that night. based on this experience, it appears EDO has lost its lustre; maybe they've had it too good for too long - lots of alternatives less than 10 min drive away

We have been and continue to be biG fans of Edo! The food has been and continues to be great.
The service seem to be struggling of late and has disappointed on our last two visits.
We remain loyal, living in hope for a return to re staff that were efficient and friendly!

They were short on server. Therefore the service was a slow but server were very nice.
Food is fresh and good but used to be more creative.
It is still a good place to go.

We had dinner as Winterlicious thing, We had a reservation, but we had to wait 45 minutes for first dish after we ordered. Also, we didn't get the first dish even though it was on menu, we asked about it, then the response was "we don't have it anymore tonight". Even though we had a reservation, it happened. It is ok, sometimes it happens, I understand, but we didn't have any explanation, they just skipped first dish, and brought 2nd dish for us. Also, we had to wait next dish around 15 min everytime. its too long. I understand, it was Winterlicious thing, so it would be busier than other time, but you knew that. I don't think 2 to 3 people were enough for that day.

I would come back for second visit. The contrast between Japanese and European style food is quiet interesting. Portion is reasonable. Will come back visit with prefix menu

Excellent service, fresh fish, reasonable prices. What more could I ask for?....maybe could improve the ambiance and decor, as it seems a bit dated.
