Beautiful patio, yummy food and drinks! Great service from Piere and great hospitality from Charlie the manager. All in all 5 out of 5!
My experience at Amal Restaurant was great! Amanda was so welcoming and amazing! I will definitely recommend Amal to my family and friends :)
One of Toronto's best. Ambiance is fantastic, especially on the Patio.
All the dishes are perfectly seasoned and presented. Have dined for both lunch and dinner, and had wonderful meals.
Best customer service and food! My fav spot
They went above and beyond to have happy customers
have not seen this service in a long time.
they enjoyed their jobs, and went the extra 100 miles.
and the food is delicious.
Couldn’t ask fir a better first after Covid dining experience! Wonderful service, amazing food and great cocktails.
Patio and food were great!
It was such an amazing experience. The quality and taste of the food was outstanding however, aside from quality of the food, the friendliness and customer service was exceptional. We will definitely come back :)
Amazing food and staff
The best place ever in Toronto 💓
Service was amazing, food fantastic - staff are wonderful. Thanks Amanda! :)
Great food and service! Highly recommend.
Best service I’ve ever received.
Lebanese food is delicious and Amal does make justice to it.
Food was excellent. Service very good. Great atmosphere. A little surprised when the charges a fee for tap water. A little bit of a turn off. Thanks.
Amal is wonderful not only because of the beautiful space it is housed in but because of its consistency in service and quality of food. Everyone here is always kind and welcoming, the food is always delicious, and the drinks are always good. Special thank you to Amanda, Paola, and Ali - the dream team :)
Great vibes and decorations. Food was okay. Friendly people
I have been looking forward to going to this restaurant the whole pandemic. It blew my expectations out of the water. First of all… it is BEAUTIFUL.. I wanted to mostly go just to see what it looked like and it’s prettier than the photos ! Second of all.. the food is amazing. The fattoush salad was the best I’ve ever had. Same with their red pepper dip (muhammara dip), was absolutely delicious! The rest of our meal was so tasty too.. I already can’t wait to go back! This restaurant has made it to my top 3 Yorkville spots. Mmmm!
Excellent, excellent food, service, and ambiance. We have lived in Toronto for 3 years and my husband said this was in his top five meals he has ever had in this city. Everything was delicious, plates came out appropriately spaced apart. Our server and the manager (Amanda I think) checked in on us often. The staff even gave honest recommendations on dishes. The outdoor seating was romantic and had a great vibe for groups as well.
Amal never disappoints! Food is incredible, cocktails delicious and refreshing , and the service impeccable! Alway a great night out to host friends!
Amazing! Great service and beautiful ambience!
Amazing! Looking to
Great experience although it was very cold outside and felt bad for our server in a skirt.
Excellent patio set-up and ambiance, and fantastic service despite the short timeframe to set up once restrictions opened up. The pistachio kebab was the highlight for sure, well cooked and incredibly flavourful. The other items were not great, flavourful enough but not what I would expect from a fine dining establishment and not up to par with real Lebanese food. Cod was dry, not fresh (definitely from frozen) and a bit overcooked, and did not vibe with the sauce and other items on the plate. The service was really excellent though, as were the cocktails. Overall it feels like the quality of the food and flavours needs some serious improvement (outside of the kebabs/fresh grilled items) but the rest of the experience was great.
Absolutely loved it! Had a great time. Food was really delicious, ambiance was just right and the service was great. Very accommodating since we arrived late to our reservation. They still let us in and allowed us to get a cake since we were celebrating our friends engagement. Would definitely come again. P.S ask for Ali (server/waiter) he is the best!
Food, Ambiance, and Service phenomenal. Highly recommended
Thank you to Charlie for the great service
The food was delicious!! The service was fast, I really enjoyed it.
Lovely food and ambience. The heated patio is great and works well for windy evenings too.
I was happy that they had various vegetarian options. The cocktails were nice too.
Food was delicious. Service was very good. Server was attentive but not overbearing.
Amal was absolutely amazing! Even with the outdoor seating due to covid. The food was truly AMAZING! I would highly recommend the tartare, the hummus, the lamb and the beef skewers 😍 hopefully when this is all done I can go back and have indoor dinning! I highly recommend and the staff was extremely friendly and personable
A wonderful experience! I recently held a small birthday Dinner at Amal and I feel compelled to leave a rave review. First of all, the outdoor patio is GORGEOUS (talk about ambiance!) and so so warm.
Our server, Ali, was amazing! He was super friendly and attentive. His immense knowledge of the food and drink menus made ordering very easy for first time diners like ourselves.
Amal offers Family-Style dining so a couple of appetizers along with a Kebab Platter was more than enough for 4 people. The food came out promptly and was incredibly delicious.
P.S. Do yourself a favour and make sure to order the Garlic Labneh dip as an app. I’m still dreaming about those hand-made pitas
We had Dana and Joshua they were both amazing service was on point! Beautiful ambiance love the food!
Our server, Dana, was outstanding!!!
Our server should teach lectures on customer service. The food was second only to my Teta (grandma in Arabic).
Wish Ford wasn’t trying to shut everything except mcodalds and Timmys down highly recommended!!
Great restaurant, exceptional wings! Great shawarma
Great food and great service and ambience, love the relaxed environment
Absolutely amazing! I will be eating here regularly. The outdoor dining area is so chic and warm. It’s very organized, clean. The food is fresh and the vibe is sexy.
The dinner was ruined by the comment of our waiter Ali about wasting the restaurants time. Even after clarifying that phase meaning didn’t have any willingness to eat and enjoy the food.
We were looking forward to giving Amal a try - a relatively new addition to our hood that had been written up in this month's Toronto Life. There seemed to be a lag time when we were first seated to move us to a better table in spite of having more than one empty table available. Finally when we were moved, we had to ask for service - again, not as prompt as we would have liked. I asked for lemon for my sparkling water which was served at room temperature (and with no ice) and there was no lemon! (My partner's glass of Chardonnay was also not served chilled.) Also, my partner's shrimp were overcooked, tough and not served hot. In spite of being labeled an "entrée", there were no sides included and no indication by the waitress or on the menu that sides were extra (the shrimp was $26 so would it hurt the bottom line to have added a scoop of rice to it?). My tagine fish burger was delicious, I must say and the lentil soup was hot and very good. All in all though, not an auspicious beginning. I also noticed one woman in the washroom who wasn't wearing a mask so they need to be more mindful about precautionary measures during COVID.
Went for brunch, great food and amazing service
