Very impressed with all the staff but especially the sommelier. She had ordered the champagne we requested even though it was not a brand the restaurant stocked. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything not only the wine. She was knowledgeable about the food and the history of Casa Loma which was even more impressive when we asked another staff person a followup question to something she told us and it was totally unknown to him. She was also the same temperament and high service level at the end of our dinner as she was when we first arrived. Also the extra touches for my wife’s birthday by all of the staff were well done and appreciated. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing evening.

We used to go to Don Alfonso when it was downtown, pre-pandemic. I can't imagine the same chef is at the Casa Loma location. The old Don Alfonso was inventive, fresh and a wonderful experience. This Don Alfonso just felt boring and overpriced. Disappointing.

We went for my Mom's 75th birthday. We had the tasting menu along with the pairing. I was hesitant about the tasting menu as there were a few items I would not have ordered myself nor did I think I would like. Was I ever wrong! The tasting menu was outstanding. Every plate was delicious - the tenderloin literally melted in your mouth and who knew eel gelato would be so delicious! The wine pairings were fantastic - we enjoyed every glass. The ambience of Casa Loma was terrific too. Overall a truly memorable experience which is exactly how we wanted Mom's special birthday to feel.

Wonderful food in a lovely ambiance, but somewhat limited menu that promotes 7 course food/wine offering. Going ala Carte we especially enjoyed the risotto and Bison tenderloin. Excellent service, complete wine list and all together a great evening out.

The receptionist lady is Super rude…. Cakes aren’t allowed to bring in to the table so you only have 5 minutes to take pictures and them they’ll take away your cake. My friend can’t even eat her own birthday cake at the table ……So if it’s a birthday occasion, I won’t recommend this place.

We wanted to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in style so we decided to go all out on this one. This restaurant did not disappoint. Yes it is over the top expensive, but for a really special occasion, why not. The wife and I did the tasting menu with the wine pairing and everything was spot on. If you want to try something completely different, this is the place to go. Although the dishes look small by the time you have gone through the 8 courses you are definitely feeling satiated.
