The chef presented a five course “sustainable tasting dinner” and every course was delicious-we hope he does it again soon! Great service as well, we will be going back.

One of the best hidden places on King W to enjoy some wine and good company. Food is great, staff is even better, with everyone greeting you with a smile. Amazing experience any days of the week, but it can get quite noisy during weekends. Super recommended :))

Our visit for brunch, restaurant is beautifully decorated with lots of plants. The server was friendly and knowledgeable and explained the restaurant’s philosophy of sustainability. I ordered the sweet potato waffle and fried chicken and it was delicious. I will definitely comeback to try their dinner menu and would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

The food was delicious. However, it didn't feel particularly safe from a covid perspective. No one scanned our vaccine passports (although they took a brief glance at it), our waiter's mask was falling off his face the entire time and they were seating tables close together although half the restaurant was empty. It didn't feel like they prioritized safety.

Lovely experience ! A little pricy but the food was very unique and so full of flavour, it was all memorable and worth it.
Minor note, the cinnamon sticks on the drink is a little wasteful, for a place that is supposed to be zero waste

Was so excited to go here having passed by many times. Unfortunately the service was very slow and the burger had the weirdest taste. My guest enjoyed her fish. For the price i would say it was not worth it.

Our server Chad was fantastic at explaining 1 Kitchen’s philosophy. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The portions were plentiful, flavour on point, and everything was quite light. It’s a great destination if you don’t want to have a very heavy meal but still want to enjoy dining out. The pamplemousse drink was quite good. The corn soup is so delicious. It’s an excellent soup for a chilly day. We really enjoyed our dinner here.

Horrible experience! My boyfriend found a long black hair in his food 😤 And the cheesecake was frozen. They did still charge us the full price. It was pretty expensive even for King west considering how bad it was.
Worst experience I ever had in Toronto.

Do not recommend at all!
