John & Sons Oyster House - Downtown
Es un lugar con muy buena comida, muy cálido y placentero
From the welcome greeting to fantastic service and the best food as we had octopus and smelts to start and fantastic pickeral. Staff and management here are so consitantly great
Had a great time celebrating a work occasion here with colleagues. Great seafood and drinks. Great service. Would definitely come again.
As usual, John & Sons was excellent. The bar staff and servers are friendly, warm and attentive. The food is also very reliably excellent - and the oysters are top notch. One of my favorite "go to" spots in the downtown core.
Great Service and knowledgeable staff
Lots of fun. Sat at the bar and watched him shuck oysters. Great selection from the east coast. Oysters and Beer to start , Lobster Poutine and Mussels and Clams for dinner. Very Tasty and definitely recommend
All great except the noise level for us....perfect, energetic but noise level makes it hard to hear for some people.
Business dinner with colleagues in from NYC, group loved the variety of oysters and raved about the scallops. Thanks J&SOH.
Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The food and wine were excellent.
Small place just off Bay is a perfect lunch/ pregame spot. Get the oysters, they shuck them right at the bar for you to see. The blue crab is good as well. Nice small seafood spot feel to it. I will be back
Best lobster roll in downtown Toronto! Great sevice and unhurried despite busy lunch hour. Has never disappointed over the years. Will go again and strongly recommend.
Fantastic lunch of soft shell crab sandwich
Over priced and nothing special: Made reservations, got seated right at the door. Water glass after initially being requested were not refilled until asked and with a bottle. (where was the bottle the first time?) Ordered oysters and they were so small for the price I wouldn't again.
The reason we went was because we thought it was an oyster specialty - we found out on this visit, it wasn't.
This was my first visit to John & Sons. My friend suggested we go to celebrate our birthdays with oysters and bubbly. We sat at the bar and enjoyed every course, more specifically, the wine. We had two dozen oysters, the smelts and octopus as appetizers. Steak frites & tuna on a fried green tomato were our mains - I enjoyed the tuna and was told the frites dish was excellent. While the plan was to enjoy some bubbles, we were offered the suggestion of a Pino Nero, which neither of us had before. It was perfect with the oysters and the rest of our meal. The service was top notch - staff were knowledgeable, kind and attentive. The music was great, too. Two bottles of wine later, we had a little glow and were quite satisfied. So much in fact, I forgot my purse and had to return. My next visit will be for the ambiance, oysters & wine.
Amazing food and great service! Had an awesome time and experience
Service was absolutely brutal. Food once served was excellent
Neil, I am sorry you had such a bad experience. We take our customer experience very seriously. Could you contact me directly email@example.com and tell me a little bit more about what happened.. or didn't happen? I appreciate your feedback and your time.
Always great. Some of my favourite seafood in the city. The oysters are always perfectly fresh and the wine list is imaginative and pairs perfectly with the seafood. Will visit again and again.....
Great Oysters and the Tuna Tartare was awesome. You have to try the lobster poutine too!
I loved everything (food, oyster) except the room temperature beer.
Easily the loudest restaurant we've ever been in. Our ears were hurting the minute we walked in. Food was delicious if not a bit expensive, drinks were even more expensive. Service was good. Don't go here for intimate conversation.
Girls were so nice and explained everything. Food was amazing and excellent service!!
Just love it! My friends and I go to celebrate or just when we need a little something special!
Love the food, ambience and the way they make you feel as a guest! As a matter of fact, I feel like going now!
Where do I start? Was an amazing dinner/evening start to finish!! Oysters were amazing! My seared tuna was probably best I’ve ever had! Staff were all attentive and super nice! Definitely going back!
I little hidden gem in the city! FYI, very intimate and noise level high...but well worth it!
Want fish with a down home feeling? This is your place. Would happily eat here several times a week.
Server was friendly and very understanding. A bit pricey (just a little bit though maybe because of the season - I ordered scallops), I was prepared to cover the bill as the host but my business partner shouldered it so I guess price is not a big factor in my responses.
Save your money and go somewhere else. The servers here must get lows tips due to the quality of the food for the price you pay.
I had the worst customer service I could possibly have. Unacceptable situation happened! Only 22 days after a refund was done. By mistake, the waitress split the bill in 3 instead of 4, so two of the people in the table paid more than supposed. I noticed the mistake and the manager told us it would be impossible to do the refund in that day. We suggested the other 2 people from the table pay the remaining amount but the manager said it was not possible because of a system limitation. She said we would have to pay again the correct amount and the wrong amount would be refund in the day after. Although we found this solution not correct, because it was a mistake from the restaurant and we would leave the place paying more than twice the correct amount, we trusted the restaurant and paid. After several calls and 20 emails exchanged with the owner of the restaurant, only 22 days after the refund was done and only because I had to go to the restaurant in person!
However, congrats to the chef, because the food was very good!
We visit John and Sons fairly often and always enjoy the oysters and the clam chowder. It is a very loud place so be prepared :)
Great food and service
Very friendly and speedy service. The Cioppino is terrific !
Amazing Seafood and service!
This is a wonderful spot. The oysters are great, and the menu has some wonderful choices. I had the nightly special that I thoroughly enjoyed - halibut and pork belly together was delicious. This is a gem.
Love this place!
Always first rate with a very welcoming and friendly staff. What’s not to like about great food . The daily special does not disappoint
Food is good. The oysters are fresh and tasty.
The service was excellent; the only problem was when we arrived, they took too long to attend and seat us.
A real hidden gem in Toronto. Not a huge menu but everything on it is awesome. The oysters are as good as they get! Whenever I travel to Toronto i always eat at John and Sons at least once.
The food was amazing. Having one service person made the service a little slow but regardless the food was epic.
Everyone~ for your appetizers have clam chowder and KFC ssam!!! They are amazing~ This place is very cozy and not loud at all.
Oysters were delicious.
Fish and chips were tasteless and the coating too thick
Best oysters I've ever had in Toronto. Tuna was spectacular.
The staff went out of their way to find us a table (we booked only an hour before dining, so that’s our fault), the service was excellent, always checking in with us, and the food was outstanding.
The atmosphere was casual and cozy, easy to converse among our table, yet private. That’s very difficult to achieve in such a small setting.
I can’t wait to go back!
