Jamie's Italian - Yorkdale
Whether you’re grabbing a bite to eat in the cozy bar to refuel after shopping, meeting for a business lunch or a family meal before a movie, Jamie’s Italian is the perfect spot.
Lunch menu is great- really nice selection and very good value.
Met freinds had a great time. Loved back seating, decor and food.
The chicken mattone was amazing
the steak was sub par in quality (try angus not triple A garbage) and had zero flavour
the fried mushrooms....were disgusting overfried and breaded....all they need is a dusting of flour and kissed in oil...
The tomato sauce is to bitter, I can get better out of a jar
the server was amazing she needs a raise
Jamie and the head chef should be ashamed of calling it an Italian restaurant....
I can better food at home and embarrassed to take my girlfriend there
I will never eat there again
I had very high expectations from the truffle pizza and the burrata. It can be so much better. Nonetheless, everything else on the table was good, and recommendable :)
Always love dining at Jaime’s Italian! Always happy with our meals! Will be back again and again! ❤️
Nice cozy table on back
Great job to all, I made specific requests, and I got exactly what I asked for. Food was delicious, it came hot and in timely fashion despite the busy night. Service was outstanding.
We enjoyed a nice dinner. Food and drinks were great!
We were served for many different servers, the meat arrived and our side arrived 5min later. We ordered a Pepsi and it took forever to come. It was always very price for the poor quality of service mas regular food!
The pasta we ordered arrived lukewarm. The pizza was delicious. The music was unnecessarily loud. Service was pleasant.
Great food and atmosphere. Knowledgeable stuff but somewhat erratic service- probably due to how busy the place gets.
Service was slow, food was fine but nothing special. Expected more. Won’t return.
This was a second time for me, and a first time for my guests to eat at Jamie's Italian, Yorkdale. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and were very pleased with our server. She understood that we wanted time between our appetizers and our meal and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. It certainly impressed our friends and it impressed me too. We will definitely return.
We chose Jamie's Italian because we needed to eat close to home. I have been a few other times and always had a god meal. I had never been there on a Saturday night. We had a 6:30 reservation, and our friends arrived before we did. Apparently, the hostess told them that there was a 2 hour limit on the table and we had to be done by 8 pm (which, according to my math was only 1.5 hours!). We were late due to the traffic getting into the mall, and arrived shortly after 6:30. Our waitress was helpful and efficient, but you could tell the restaurant was understaffed that night. I have celiac disease. There are many options for me and I chose a salad and a pasta. The husbands both ordered the steaks. One of the men does not mix meat with milk. When my salad arrived, I asked if it was the gluten free one and was told yes. On the first bite, I noticed a rogue crouton! Luckily, I didnt eat it and the waitress swapped it for another one. However, her response was that it must have fallen off of my friends salad into mine! Hmm. When the mains arrived, the steaks had parmesan cheese sprinkled on them! My friend asked to see a menu to see if he had missed the 'cheese' part of the description. The waitress told him that they always put cheese on and that they must have left it off the new menus but that she would get him a new one without cheese! Luckily, the manager took that off our bill as he had to watch us eat while waiting to eat! For mall food, its ok. I would never go there on a Saturday night again!
I am Italian so unfortunately the Bolognese just didn’t do it for me. The rosemary focaccia bread was delicious but that’s all I enjoyed. I prefer my noodles al dente for sure but they were a little too al dente.
Waitress didn’t seem that interested and it was 5:00 pm so not terribly busy.. sorry but with the other choices at Yorkdale I don’t think I’ll be back. $210 for 4 adults and 2 kiddies seemed pricey... love Jamie Oliver though
Great food. Great service .
It was really cold because we were near the door and they wouldn’t move us. Then the server never checked up on us
Flank steak arrived cold. I’m not one to complain but the server was kind enough to ask. I told her it was cold and dry. She insisted on getting the kitchen to make a new one. After one bite I said ok. So 15 mins later the server brings it back and it’s the same dish since I cut a piece of it out. So basically they microwaved it. What a disappointment. Not going back.
The waiter was very accommodating to our dietary needs and wants we very knowledgeable. Will definitely visit again!
The food was amazing and the staff was very professional. Great place for lunch
Pizza was soggy and had to be re made.
Appetizer was too salty!
Slow service, but friendly
Way to over priced for the quantity. Quality was ok, but food was cold when it arrived, though the server said the plat was hot. Clearly used a warmer to warm plate only. Sorry but I wont be back. Would recommend any other restaurant in Yorkdale
Great food and fantastic service. Steak special was outstanding and good value. All in all a great experience. This place gets busy so better make a reservation.
Had a lovely dinner for my husband’s birthday. Their big green olives were delicious and their Ravioli dish was tasty. The waitress was friendly and brought out my husband’s dessert with a candle and a paddle board that said happy birthday. I would definitely return!
Great food as always. The service with our waitress at the beginning was a little slow even though it was not busy. Later she got better.
Reliable food, good service in a casual environment
Enjoyed the evening, especially the brownie dessert. Missed some freshly grated parmesan on my pasta, but the dish was very well-seasoned and tasty overall.
Extremely disappointing. Both the quality of the food and service were terrible. I would not recommend going. Our pizza came cold and tasteless. It took more than 20 minutes for our waiter to come back to find out that we were unhappy with it.
Love the food but the server was extremely pushy- refused to let me order a smaller pasta even though I insisted. First time this happens at this resto
We tried this restaurant before on a cruise ship and we were impressed, but when we find this one in Yorkdale shopping center was rate 3.6 on Google, so we did not try. Last night, we decided and gave it a try and found the found was as good as we tried before. The service was excellent. The only minor complain is there is no entrance from the shopping center, it will be cold in the winter time.
Excellent for sharing with a group or for individual mains.
The restaurant was empty
Very good, appropriate pricing and good food. The service was good and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu.
Server was unattentive...
Food was bad. We ordered pizza, came out only slightly warm. Spaghetti fongole, Pasta came out in clumps... sent the food back. 2nd one pasta came out ok... but the food was just poor quality. Ordered also a “famous prawn pasta”. shrimp was like frozen tiny, and packaged...
Fantastic food for a decent price!
Very nice place. Food was outstandingly good. Ordered the Super lunch for only 24$ for two courses . Big servings, great value. Service was a little slow but didn’t bug me.
I was looking forward to the grilled squid. However when it arrived it was way overcooked and much of it was burned. They did give me a free dessert which was nice!
This was my 2nd time visiting the restaurant in the past year. The service needs more improvement. Their was no cutlery or napkins at our table. No sugar or milk for our coffees. And my girlfriend had to ask for the ketchup after her food had already arrived. The desserts were lacking flavor and quality.
Here are my observations as following;
1. Unavailable Dishes in the menu were not cross out and even the server is unaware.
2. 60% of the servers were busy Chit chatting at around 1:16pm on 17th Sept 2019. Non of the server came to us to place our orders and instead busy chit chatting. I have to approach the server for the bill at their counter since most of them are no where to be seen. Some of them ignore us even though we waved.
3. The overall taste of the food particularly the simple Spaghetti Bolognese is way below standard. Totally out of Jamie Oliver expected standard. Furthermore I bought some clients from oversea and its totally embarrassing.
4. I won’t recommend or step into this restaurant anymore
Wonderful restaurant! Amazing and delicious food. Modern decor beautiful. A great place for families. Will definitely look forward to going back!
