A great experience. We had wine matching the different courses when in fact it was not on the menu. Excellent service
The meal was awesome from the Chile potatoes to the steak. Unique simple culinary dishes, cocktails were spot on. Service was impeccable, timing of plates appropriately spaced, which seems to be such an issue for other restaurants!
It’s was a relaxed chilled no rushed all round great dinner!
The decor, ambience and service was impeccable! Cocktails and wine were great.
Our server was truly wonderful and helped us navigate the wine menu. One of us is pescatarian and the other is vegetarian, and we had no trouble finding something delicious on the menu. We’ll definitely be back!
The space was beautiful and the service was excellent, but of the five dishes we had, only one was worth the price point. Lamb carpaccio excellent, but lobster dish only mediocre (and $42 for what was equivalent to an appetizer). I would only go again if they did work on the menu.
I love this restaurant with all my heart! Every time I eat here, my mind is blown. The hospitality and ambiance is bar none some of the best in the city. Chef's food is world-class. Seeing the calm and measured way he commands the kitchen is really something to look up to and it gives me a rare and comforting sense of hope for the culinary industry.
The only qualm I have, if I may, is regarding the white wine selections (that we picked at least) which were not much to speak of. I do love the orange wine though.
Food was outstanding. We split a majority of the menu so we could try everything. The crispy pig head was out of this world
Service from hostess greeting, to server who took our drinks, to server who provided each dish was wonderful. Very attentive, and also discreet, perfect balance. Very knowledgeable about the wine menu, and recommended delicious dishes that balanced starting light and ending with something more indulgent. Food we very good, our favourite was the fettucine with umi , cremini mushrooms and black truffle. The lobster with brussel sprouts was very good as well. Wine list is very extensive and cocktails were wonderful.
What an amazing time at GG for our 6-month pregnancy / March 8 celebration. Everyone made our dinner and experience memorable. Special mention to our server and front of house greeter. Very attentive to my pregnant wife’s comfort and dietary needs. Also, thank you for letting me be a “guinea pig” to sample variety of wines to match with two mains. You guys rock!
Don’t often write reviews but I have to say - outstanding. Here for a special birthday.
I had a fantastic time at my birthday dinner! The food was impeccable and the service was amazing.
Great energy in the restaurant. Loved the scallop crudo. Everything else was good.
A lovely experience overall and one of the best in the Market.
Good food however, very disappointed in the $55 lobster Medium dish.
Very spicey, they said it had some spice however, it was extremely spicy, not how lobster should be served. You would not even know that you were eating lobster!
Otherwise, I would eat there again by trying something different.
The rutabaga salad was exceptional,
Food, drinks, service was fabulous! Specifically, the rutabaga and seeetbreads were amazing. Can’t wait to go back!
The staff was hospitable, the ambiance excellent and the food/ beverage amazing. Definitely will be back.
Lorraine is the best!
Food was really great. Really nice wine list. Love the place.
Absolutely fantastic evening! The food, the service, the attention to detail, the great vibe and wonderful wine pairings were all perfect. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a special evening in Toronto!
There is no better restaurant in the city. World class in every way. Thank you!
Everything Jen does is perfect. This was my second time at Grey gardens. Wine was dope, food was dope, service was on point. My water was topped, my wine was topped. Table was maintained. Thank you to the whole team,you are great.
Excellent service.! Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Made excellent suggestions. Great ambiance and excellent food and wine!
Amazing and delicious food! Highly recommend - very active environment. We enjoyed it very much!
The service was outstanding. However, we had two issues:
1. The entree (Tandoori Lobster) was very underwhelming in terms of flavours, portion size and presentation. There was nothing Tandoori about it. The flavours didn't go well together. It was too basic and flat for a $50 entree. The negroni was also very basic and flat in flavours for how much they are charging.
2. Although I love the open kitchen concept and the decor, there was this cold draft that kept hitting us because of the entry door, which requires a heat curtain. It ruined the entire ambience / feel for us.
I personally won't be going back. It's just not worth the price.
It's been one of my favourite places in the city since they opened.
Today I was disappointed with their Potato (small) dish and their Banana dessert was not at par at all. They did offer the chocolate dish when I told them I wasn't happy with the molasses and not at par compared to their churro dish in the past. I was simply full by then.
However, I am very happy to have enjoyed fettuccine with uni, truffles, and a very good lobster dish.
Awesome place, great service, would definitely return.
The best place! Food, wine, ambiance, service - all amazing
The food and ambience were great. The service was pretty good, though felt a bit incomfortable with the main server. Overall, the experience was positive.
The food was excellent, and restaurant is amazing for a date, or drinks with a friend.
What took me so long to go to this restaurant? So delicious -- and excellent friendly and knowledgeable service too.
I was recently surprised by an less-than-pleasant experience at Grey Gardens. I understand that many restaurants have an 'out by' time, and we were informed that we had our table for two hours. It was surprising though when at 2 hrs and 1 minute into our meal, with only 1/3 of a cup of coffee left to finish and no one waiting at the front door, I was interrupted mid-sentence by a staff member informing me that our allotted time was up and that we had to either pay the bill or move to the bar. In this situation, where there were other empty tables / spots at the bar, no one waiting, and we were almost done our meal, I thought they would have been more professional. One of the reasons I have enjoyed Grey Gardens in the past was the excellent service - I will be thinking twice before making my next reservation.
Food and service was great! Very attentive servers. Great ambience as well. Great place for a date.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful...wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful...
Our waitress was adorable and attentive, and made the experience extra nice. The atmosphere is really great. I thought ravioli was super tasty but it was only 5 tiny pieces of ravioli (27$). Perhaps easier on the truffle and give a few more pieces? I didn't really like the starters -- sashimi scallops were okay but needed some salt, and brussel sprout salad was strange. I will go back and try it again when it has an updated menu. I'd love to book their private room downstairs for a birthday (so charming!), and sit at the bar for a date some time. I think this place will stick around if they don't get too expensive and keep the charm factor at the same level.
Amazing Service from the minute you entered the restaurant! We had amazing seats ; right at the chefs bar! It was awesome! Our server was so friendly and knowledgeable 🤗 all of our meals we’re made so deliciously - hands down one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in TO - will be going back 100%
Amazing experience! Great atmosphere + excellent food! Wine list was extensive as well
Amazing! Can't wait to return
Birthday. Ravioli was delicious!
Oh my goodness THE PASTA. We've been talking about it since.......The kind of pasta that makes you stop talking to your guest and makes you wish you hadn't agreed to share. Memorable meal. We'll be back.
Went there with my sister this past weekend, at her request. The food was excellent and the ambiance was just right. Also, our server was very helpful and obliging. The pricing is high for sure, but not enough to deter me from dining here again.
