    We had a 1:00 pm reservation for 4 people for brunch and waited about 20 minutes for our table. They said they wanted to give us a special table for our little celebration. Initially, our waitress seemed rushed to take our orders and looked at her watch which was not a good start in my opinion. Service improved and ended up being very good. One dish we ordered with our appetizers didn’t come. We were told several times it was coming but it didn’t arrive until the very end of our meal which wasn’t when we wanted it. This was the Halloumi cheese. It was extremely salty and not worth the wait. Overall, the meal was delicious. The room was filled and quite noisy for anyone with hearing issues but a very nice spot. They noted this was a birthday celebration when the reservation was made and again when we were seated but no further mention was made of this nor was anything special done so I don’t know if it was just forgotten by the time our brunch ended.

    My first time trying Lebanese food & it DEFINITELY will not be the last! From the stunning interior to the outstanding service and most importantly the delicious food, this place was worth every penny. I went with a group of four for dinner and we decided to share everything (which I highly recommend). Specifically, I recommend the four-person skewer platter, which was the highlight of our meal. Overall this restaurant is definitely worth checking out and can't wait to go back to try the brunch!

    It’s a cute resto. Definitely brighter than when it used to be La Société. The hosts were very accommodating and pleasant. Layout-wise, should have been fine except for the 2-seater tables in the middle of the aisles. It impedes foot traffic and uncomfortable for diners with people passing left and right all the time. The food was unremarkable. The flavors weren’t balanced. All I could taste was the strong lemon in the dishes. I’d recommend if you just really want to hang out with your friends, but make sure you reserve and more than two lest you end up in the 2-seaters in the aisles. However, if you are there for the food, best to try other restaurants.

    I brought my family here to celebrate my mothers birthday. Appetizers - we ordered the sampler dip, marinated olives and the makanek. Overall, the appetizers were amazing! Probably the highlight of the menu at Amal and would definitely come back for appetizers Mains - we ordered the chicken tawok, kefta kabob, Ontario lamb chops, and the chicken shawarma. The chicken tawok was very dry and had little seasoning, kefta kabob was good but no difference from anywhere else I’ve tried it, lamb chops were under seasoned, a bit of a disappointment here! The chicken shawarma was good, but many places to get juicer less expensive shawarma in the city (would not get again). Service - Our waiter was really nice to us, but was he ever in a rush to get us out. I even pulled him to the side to tell him we are celebrating a birthday and would like to go slow as we are in rush and wanted to enjoy the restaurant. Didn’t go as planned - our mains came out while we were finishing our appetizers, the table almost had no room. This appears to be common at this restaurant as this happened to two other tables and one of them were really not happy since they just sat down and ordered their food and it was all there. On the other side if you love fast service where they rush you out the door you are almost guaranteed that here! Due to the fact that we are with no breaks we didn’t get to order dessert or enjoy the show scheduled for this evening as we were in and out the door within like 48 minutes. We also ordered drinks and those were really great! I would give this restaurant a 3.7/5 mainly due tot he service and the dry and unseasoned mains. I would come back but purely for appetizers and drinks

    I wrote a note during my reservation that it's my wife's 30th birthday to make it special somehow (Add a cake slice, or something to make it extra special, nothing like that happended). Food was really good, but a long wait, and the portions were smaller than one would expect. Also, the staff is a bit junior.. can't beat Keg's

    My wife and I had a birthday celebration and we have enjoyed the food and ambience on our previous visits. This was our first Saturday night reservation and while the crowd noise was a bit louder than usual it wasn’t over the top. The food was great as usual and despite taking a bit longer to arrive the restaurant was very busy and it allows for a nice break in between courses to digest. There was belly dancing entertainment which was great. The dancer was awesome and danced in all areas of the restaurant. Overall great experience.. we will be back
