The romance of fine dining returns to Toronto at Flor De Sal. Crisp white linens and flickering candlelight create an elegant mise en scène. In the kitchen, old-world, soul-stirring recipes get a contemporary spin. Guests of Flor De Sal will be treated to modern continental cuisine inspired by the flavours of Portugal and Mediterranean.

Great for all occasions.

We went for a family celebration. The food was excellent -- scallops seared just right, steak exactly to order, risotto not overdone. It was one of our best meals this year. Service was polite and attentive, but not irritating.
The wine list has a range of popular wines (e.g. Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay) but I would recommend the more interesting, lesser known, Portuguese choices. These include very good values, especially among the reds.
Two of our party have celiac disease and so cannot eat gluten. This was not an issue.
The price was reasonable especially in view of the quality of the food and the service.

We expected a much better food quality.... service was uneven. Portuguese wine suggested was excellent though way over priced; the house made olives and the strawberry/passion-fruit sorbet intermezzo were excellent .. Everything else was sadly ordinary.
We were not offered coffee either.... maybe this restaurant does not make it?

I was invited for lunch to celebrate my birthday. I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant, so I chose to go there. We loved everything about it, and my friends were thankful for my choice. My birthday cake came as a surprise. It was provided by the restaurant without being asked. Nice gesture. We’ll be back for sure.

There seem to be a lot of people that work here...possibly too many. My squid ink risotto was lacking in seafood quantity. I also bit into part of a small clam shell and I was very careful to remove all shells before I started eating. Additionally my risotto was under seasoned and oddly spicy. Not the normal kind of heat...moreso latent. I was really looking forward to eating here but I’m not sure I will again in the future.

The owner came out to greet us at our table which was a nice touch.

I took my long time childhood friend for her 60th birthday, it was her first time there and she loved it. She especially loved the Portuguese beer, since she was leaving the next day for her summer vacation in Portugal. It was my third time there, definitely my favorite restaurant.

My husband and I were there for Summerlicious and enjoyed our set menu. The food was delicious. My husband would have preferred the sardines were grilled in their entirety but he did say as they were served they were very good. My clams bulhoa were delicious. We looked at the wine list and were surprised that it was so expensive. We travel regularly to Portugal and felt the menu prices were very high for wines we enjoy when in Portugal.
The service was excellent and the ambiance lovely.

Ok food, but really not a patch on what we have enjoyed in Portugal. Prices somewhat OTT.

Lovely decorations and furnishings, but an absurd level of noise and vibration from the air conditioning which was frankly rather uncomfortable. I raised the issue with two wait staff, but the racket continued throughout our meal.

A poor experience made worse by an arrogant manager/owner who clearly lacks an understanding of how to create a fine dining experience. Just a few of the incidents that transpired:

1. We were told 7 minutes before the kitchen closed that one of the mains we ordered was no longer available.

2. It took 62 minutes before our appetizer (oysters) were brought out. The manager/owner happened to be walking by our table approx. 45 mins after we ordered, and we asked if it was possible the kitchen had forgotten to process our order. She dismissed us, saying 'it takes time to shuk the oysters' (perhaps this woman did not understand that it does not take 45 minutes to shuk 12 oysters?)

3. Caviar was brought out more than 75 minutes after we ordered, well after the champagne we ordered the caviar with was done (any fine dining resto understands that when a patron orders champagne and caviar together, they are intended to be SERVED together, not an hour apart!)

4. The only main course we ordered took 2 full hours to arrive - and we had already asked the waiter to cancel the order and bring us the bill.

5. Another table voiced a concern to the manager/owner about the poor service and pacing, and her reaction was, 'This isn't fast food - it takes time' (I actually went to the other table to console the customer and explain that others in the dining room were equally annoyed)

It was this last comment to the other table that motivated me to write this review. This woman seems to believe that her customers have never dined at top tier restaurants before; as if everyone in the room had only eaten at Pizza Pizza in the past. She didn't seem to have any clue that her customers were actually sophisticated foodies, nor did she care.

Overall, this place ruined our night and we'll never go back. Nor should anyone else.
