    One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. In hidden simplicity, the kitchen delivers plates filled with flavor, freshness and textures. The wagyu tartare and the smoked fish paté were outstanding, but to say about the tomatoes beautifully dressed with dried olives?

    We had such a great dinner at Grey Gardens. The new summer menu items are so good. The asparagus dish was delicious, and the 5 layer dip was worth a splurge - so yummy! Both the torelloni and campanelle pastas were just outstanding - not sure which was my favourite so I will have to try them both again. Save room for dessert too. As always, service was impeccable and the wine list so great.

    Had a lovely dinner with my husband. We had the smoked fish dip, wagyu tartare, asparagus, tortellini and lamb belly. The highlight was the smoked fish dip and asparagus. Will definitely return.

    Two of my favourite restaurants in Toronto are Foxley which is a casual but phenomenal walk-in, and Alo, which is an archetype of fine dining. Grey Gardens hits this beautiful sweet spot in between. The dishes are sublime, clever and adventurous. The menu is perfectly small. The interior colour palette of whites with spots of turquoise is classy without trying too hard. It’s also easy on the eye, so your brain doesn’t suffer sensory overload. The service—friendly, knowledgeable, and with passion for the food and drinks.

    Best meal in Toronto maybe ever. Every dish was perfect. Oysters, shrimp, steak tartare, ravioli was impeccably perfect. Wine slightly expensive but overall dinner was amazing. $200. for two.

    My wife wanted to go to Grey Gardens after reading Jen Aggs book. It turned out to be one of the best dining experiences we have had in Toronto and we have been to a few places. The seat at the kitchen was perfect for us, being able to see the hard working and friendly staff up close was a bonus. The food was excellent, we worked our way through the menu. The wine selection was fab, can’t say I enjoyed trying the orange wine but I tried it. The service was very good, what I would expect from also reading Jen’s book, Aurora was great and we will certainly be back.
