    We had the pleasure of being served by Kelly. It was my girlfriend birthday and the best gift she received was the impeccable service. The attention of detail and care given by Kelly throughout our dining experience was extraordinary. If your lucky enough to have Kelly as guide throughout this adventure of spectacular food, you’re in for a treat. The food was a journey of flavours that were perfectly complimented by the following dishes. The view alone has a worth it. This dining experience is a must

    Food was delicious but literally two bites . Horrible. This is a one time deal. I don’t think Ppl will be back. It has an Asian influence . I can get a better duck and meal in so many other places! One Cook told us , it’s not life thats hard it is US that makes it difficult- we can just order an additional 5 x the amount. That’s what he said regarding the portions . We ordered 2X the amount and paid .So how much would a normal size ravioli be? It was literally 2 ravioli cut in half so there was four tiny bites!!! Lol for $50! The only thing worth charging 5x was the wagyu beef. It was very disappointing’ we spend $900 for three people - only two beers and they charged us for bottles of water we didn’t even drink or open! What a joke! Go to the watermark @ Niagra falls ! Best food and ambiance same! FIGO Toronto for a fabulous ragu- Or Barnsteiners ! So much to choose from . Sad . This won’t last long. Terrible management! Servers were nice!

    What a wonderful evening the tasting menu & premium wine selections perfectly paired to each course. Staff attentiveness was unparalleled and the chef had no problem adjusting the menu to our daughter & my dairy allergy. A must for any foodie or anyone that enjoys a perfect evening out.

    I have to say the whole experience did not disappoint. Beautiful decor, attentive service and outstanding food. From the perfectly mixed cocktails to the warm bread, each course was prepared to perfection and beautifully presented. We lingered over a bottle of wine and flavourful cheese plate and ended with lovely desserts and deliciously brewed espressos. Thank you to Chef Daniele and his entire staff for making our anniversary celebration a truly memorable evening.

    Don Alfonso (new location) is still a work in progress. The chef's selection was good but not great. The last courses were rushed and some even overlapped. Wine pairing pricing is just astronomical even for a place like this. Service was generally good and there was no shortage of staff although not attentive enough for a Michelin star. Views are fantastic. We'd give it another try in the future.

    This was an incredible dining experience. We had the a la carte menu, every course was delicious and each server provided an explanation of the dish. Our main server was Gary who provided impeccable service with an added touch of class and knowledge. He ended the experience with a tour of the kitchen and restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Experience of a lifetime. We were treated like VIP guests. Very attentive service. Special thanks to Sarah, our Server, and Julie (Jules), our Sommelier. They made the evening magical for us. Each dish was well presented, delectable, and well paced. Bonus was when Don Alfonso himself and his wife visited our table, more than once! We have already booked our next dinner reservation. 😋

    A perfect sunny afternoon to enjoy a one of a kind dining experience & stunning lake & city skyline views. The signature menu with wine pairing is a must, it lasted about 3 hours. Food, service & atmosphere were 10/10, great experience from beginning to end! The service, the food, the thoughtful birthday gesture - couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate!

    Everything was amazing. From the food, the view, the service and washrooms! But I wish they would change their menu as it’s almost been the same for the past few years. I’d come back more often if I can taste different food each time.
