Celebrated a birthday here and had a fantastic experience. Service was relaxed, comfortable, and attentive. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and we were very happy with his recommendations. Food was amazing and very high quality. Overall great value for King West dining and would highly recommend.
-Attentive and knowledgeable staff provided prompt service and excellent recommendations (items and portion sizes).
-Great atmosphere - lively and energetic
-Food was delicious
-Non- alcoholic cocktails ( special request- not menu listed ) were overpriced, untimely and underwhelming.
The Seafood paella was absolutely fantastic. The lamb ribs were equally impressive.
The wine list is extensive, but the non-alcoholic drink list (mocktails) was a bit short. They couldn’t make what I ordered but it wasn’t a problem. They made something else up on the fly that they thought I would like and hit the bullseye.
The service was excellent and never intrusive.
They also brought out a delicious creme brûlée as my wife’s birthday cake.
The restaurant itself is just down from the theatres on king street so it was a great place to fuel up and relax between work and the show.
(One final plug for this place if it is important to you, is that our entire meal was delicious and gluten free without putting any effort into reading the menu...)
One of my guests never received his food order, the vintage wine i ordered was a 2017 (as per the menu), however i was served a 2018 vintage (which might not make a difference to most people...but does to me). Overall, the server comped one of the tapas and discounted the wine, so they did apologize and made efforts to fix things which was appreciated.
Excellent tapas. Nice atmosphere - serenely quiet on a Sunday night.
Sunday night. Quiet. Attentive service.
Well done great fish of the day
I love this place. The food is amazing and the service and ambiance are terrific.
Great food, had no problem splitting bills among 5 people, server was great - could have been more attentive but still good. They did a birthday dessert which was great and rare to see in these types of restaurants.
Food was too salty and service was a little slow when the restaurant wasn’t full.
Food is delicious, table seating is quite tight as the paella dish is huge so not too much space for other dishes. Server is attentive, will definitely go back to try out other things on the menu
Great space. Friendly and helpful staff, food was delicious. Will definitely return.
This was our second time here and was just as amazing the second time!! Sat at the Chef table both times.
Always a great experience. More tapas selection and an update of the menu would be appreciated
Authentic Spanish cuisine in a cosy, candlelit room with option for table, counters or bar seating. Great paella, fish, steak, pan con tomate, patatas braves, salads, and charcuterie, all perfect for sharing. Excellent cocktails and wine selection. This was about our 6th time eating dinner there and we recommended it family and many friends. We've always been happy with the service too.
We had a great experience. The restaurant is spacious and airy with beautiful decor.
It was a great place for a business lunch. The salads were outstanding, entres excellent, desserts to die for and the service excellent. Will come back again, for certain.
Overall great experience , from the service to great food .
We are so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for taking the time to post a review!
Good location and good food in a casual and friendly environment.
The food was really good. My husband and I had “Dirty rice” and it was delicious, very rich flavour!
Excellent tapas and paella! Would go back in a second!
Croquetas were amaziiing~ I loved every bite of if
Pan Tumaca -
*the bread way too toasted it hurts my gum
*the sauce tasted like a mix between pico de gallo and bruschetta but not tumaca
*way too saucy there it was between a rissotto and a paella
*the chicken within the paella had no taste
*Szafran was missing
Patatas bravas were good
and the service was very slow we got there at 12:15 and left at 2:15
We loved our dinner ! The flavors were ultra delicious, service was attentive and warm. We were very happy at our private table, it was perfect. Loved the restaurant layout and decor. The noise level was subdued allowing easy conversation. The only caveat is that the portions were somewhat modest for the cost, in particular the paella, (which we absolutely loved and devoured). Oh, and our drinks were fab, we especially enjoyed the smoky Dream of Greenie. We will be back !
Fantastic paella and appetizers. Sat at the bar and had wonderful service from bar and wait staff. We would highly recommend Labora for a great experience👍
Pricey but consistently great output from the kitchen. Favs include sea bass and dirty rice
we celebrated birthday party of 4. The hostess accommodated us right away, even we showed up half an hour early of our reservation. We ordered all tapas that was listed in menu. Each one was delicious and nicely presented. Our favorite was beef croquets and lamb short ribs. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful with menu .
thank you, great experience
We loved the grilled octopus and rice dishes
A great experience
Will definitely go back
The service and the food was amazing ! We just asked them to bring us some of their favourites. We were not disappointed !!
From the moment we walked in the staff were engaging and attentive. Food was yummy and quantity was perfect. Great suggestions from the Waite staff. Wine was great
Had a fabulous evening and would highly recommend and definitely return.
The fried calamari sandwich is a must try! Delicious seafood paella. Great selection of interesting cocktails.
Excellent high end Spanish tapas — a perfect blend of fusion and classics — everything was delicious and great service!
Delicious food, good service, reasonable price, would definitely reccommend and go back
Rob and Mel treat you like family! It’s always so special visiting Labora! I can’t wait to go back!
The food was amazing, our server was kind and warm
This place is consistently delicious. It is by far the best restaurant on King West and probably the whole city! All Torontonians need to dine here and often.
Extensive menu with lots of great choices. Overall everything tasted amazing. Our server was friendly. By our sixth dish, we were stuff. Our server was nice enough to check in to see if we had room for our final course, and was happy to cancel the order for us. It was the first time in my dining experience someone asked or gave us that option.
Very nice atmosphere and ambiance. Service was quick and attentive too
