    This place never disappoints. The service, the music, the food…everything is so well thought out, yet they make it all feel effortless. A true gem!

    I had been here before and felt that the quality of the food had significantly decreased. We were very disappointed. The seating was extremely tight, and we were place next to a man who inappropriately kept putting his foot up on the bench next to my husband as he was eating no one asked him to politely put his foot down, and we didn’t feel like it was our place. I had fond memories of this restaurant, and was excited to return but sadly we were underwhelmed

    I’m so happy I found this place on open table! It’s a quaint restaurant that has top of the line finishes. So perfect for a cozy date night. I had the hazelnut and brown butter Agnolotti and it was incredible. Sometimes house wines are a hit or a miss but, MY GOD, the house skin-contact orange wine was to DIE for. Easily one of my winter favourites. Can’t wait to return in the day time to study here and grab a coffee!!

    Everything was excellent - from our first cocktails to our last dish. Service was warm and friendly. Not exactly cheap but it’s a good place to splash out, great value. Also possible to have a really good meal here without it being too pricey. 10/10 :)

    Open kitchen with mediocre ventilation means that your hair and clothing will smell strongly of cooking and food scent during and after dinner. But otherwise the food and drinks are very good to excellent. Crab lettuce wraps are a highlight!

    Honestly disappointed with the service yesterday. I never leave reviews and I’ve been to grey gardens a couple times. I came with a friend for drinks and we had booked the bar because we weren’t planning on eating. When we mentioned just drinks to our server her tone and attitude immediately shifted and we saw her walk to the host to mention it. She was genuinely quite abrupt and cold - taking our menus and plates in such a haste and we felt absolutely awful. If there is an expectation to eat / if Greg gardens doesn’t want just drink guests then I’d suggest they make that known. It was super unfortunate and put such a damper on the night. I can totally appreciate that tipping could also have been impacted and is why we always had the intention of giving a 30% tip to account for the fact that we didn’t order food. I still ended up tipping that amount (again Im not sure if that’s why she was upset or rude and I’m making an assumption here) but regardless, I will no longer be returning to grey gardens.

    Rich flavor profile and great service. Although the wait time to get our mains was more than an hour which made the experience anticlimactic. Otherwise would highly recommend on their non busy days.

    Honestly… I was so so happy with the entire experience. I am from New York and I have always been dissatisfied with the service in most Toronto restaurants. Not here! What a lovely, caring, thoughtful and skilled team! Our server was just incredible. And the food! Wow. The Brussels sprouts dish in particular knocked our socks off. The best veg dish I have ever tasted. All the food was incredible and unique. The tuna! The fish dip! The pork chop! Spot on delicious and interesting. Very nice room and they were playing the best ‘80’s music at just the right volume. And what a wine list! Loved Grey Gardens and will be back over and over
