We ordered a special Paella which was excellent! Very kind service as well
It was fine. Every other restaurant was booked during TIFF and this place was half empty. The food was nice. Nothing special. I don't really see us going back there.
The food and service were exceptional. There were four of us sharing many dishes everything was delicious. Very warm and welcoming staff.
Great overall but very slow service in spite of it being a quiet day.
The paella was amazing, highly recommended
We enjoyed our meal very much. We were caught a little off guard when the server told us we had to leave by 9:00 p.m. (we had 8:00 p.m. reservations). This was Tiff weekend so we assuming this was the reason?
Chose to do the “kitchen chooses what’s best for our group” option - ended up with a very large bill at the end of the night and we were all hungry. Fantastic food taste but not enough for our hungry bellies.
The music was far too loud.
Foods are amazing! Especially the fresh fish! Very delicious!!!
We were so pleasantly surprised by our experience at Labora. There was some concern about it being located in the club district, where oftentimes even credible restaurants tend to cater to that clientele (loud music, etc.). Labora felt like a place where people of all ages can enjoy a delicious meal without feeling like they're out of place (i.e. too old in a room filled entirely with 20-year-olds), and have a conversation without having to yell. The service was warm and professional - just perfect. We felt very well taken care of, our meal was superb and we were each greeted with a complimentary glass of cava to celebrate our anniversary. Just lovely. There was a miscommunication about one of the dishes we ordered but we enjoyed it anyway, however the server gave us a free drink each as compensation for the error. It was an honest mistake that we were equally responsible for. The atmosphere is exactly what I want in a restaurant: a warm and sophisticated design without looking like it's trying too hard, different "zones" and types of seating (i.e. high tops, counter, etc.) each with their own distinct vibe, and all of it extremely comfortable. We can't wait to go back!
Amazing tapas. We were a party of 8, so decided on the 14 course tasting menu that was all so good. You knew it was going to be good, right from the start with the olive oil toasted sour dough with tapenade. It was simple and the best we've ever had. Atmosphere - inviting, comfortable vibe. Drinks - great sangria. Food - excellent, all of it. Service - friendly and impeccable. You can choose smaller menus or just order off their a la carte. Of note... the tomato rubbed bread, jamon croquettes, pillowy pulpits (octopus), manchego with quince paste, lobster paella and ribeye. Go - it is fantastic and better than any tapas in the city!
The food was well prepared and the service was great. We will definitely visit again.
Good food and service. Couple of issues. The paella was good but took a long time to arrive. Also we were a party of 4 and they served us 3 octopus tentacles. Charge us more for the extra tentacle or include it but match the food to the table especially a dish that is meant to be shared....
Excellent food and amazing service. Pricey but the quality is worth it
I enjoyed food and service there.
Fantastic meal, drinks and service. A must try restaurant!,,
The food was amazing, each dish was carefully thought out with memorable flavours. The service was great too, our server was very knowledgeable and explained each dish with passion and detail.
Great food, great service great atmosphere! Slightly on the pricey side but still pretty good value.
The cocktail and wine are overpriced and tasted mediocre. We weren’t offered any free tapas with our drink purchases during happy hour. The service was otherwise good. The tapas we paid for were tasty. But everything was overpriced. Poor value for money.
Sat at the Chef's table which was quite an experience.
The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Very unique and outstanding cuisine.
Perfect place for a group of friends, date night or just drinks.
We had dinner with my father in law, hostess was accommodating and waitress was very friendly.
Brought my Spanish relatives and they were impressed! Probably the best asparagus dish I've had in my life.
Fanastic food. Fantastic service. Sat by the kitchen and it was great to see all of the delicious food being prepared!
The food and service were amazing. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and come again.
Excellent! Octopus, lamb chops really good! Friendly service! Will return
Great service. Awesome food.
We shared the peppers, anchovies and bread with tomatoes, which were all great.
We also shared the Wagyu/Mushroom paella. Overall, the dish was fantastic, but 2 of the 4 slices of Wagyu beef were so fatty we couldn’t eat them. The paella itself was cooked perfectly and the flavours were fantastic. Hence 4 out of 5.
Our waiter was very personable and made good recommendations.
Drink service was slow given that there were very few people in the restaurant, but the Rioja by the glass was excellent and the gin with Mediterranean tonic was nice (although i was left wanting for more, it could have used a larger rocks glass with more gin and tonic). Flavour was excellent though.
We were late to the reso and the staff was more than accommodating, even close to closing time. The food was very tasty and the staff was helpful in suggesting menu options. The decor was warm and the music was just right. Definitely going back.
Thank you so much for dining with us! We hope to see you and your guests again soon!
Really great place with fantastic, knowledgeable staff. Food was excellent but didn't blow me away for the price. Lovely feel to the room.
Thank you for your lovely review. We hope you can join us again and perhaps try some of our new dishes!
So so good
We're so glad you enjoyed it, Kristine ! Thank you for your thoughtful review !
Great food, relaxed atmosphere, overall really enjoyable dining experience.
We are so glad you enjoyed it, we hope to see you again!
Tldr: Didn't feel like the quality of food or service justified the price. Wouldn't go back.
Charges premium prices for portions and quality of food that is extortion. Quarter octopus for $36, sounds fair...three tenticles is not a quarter, it was over cooked and had no flavour!
$12 for blue cheese, ok could be reasonable... We ended up with a slice about the same size as my pinky, I might have Donald Trump sized hands, so you could imagine my disappointment.
20-25mins for drinks to arrive? Common.
Food was fresh and tasty. Our server was excellent.
Excellent service, absolutely delicious food, great wine and cocktails set against a beautiful ambience. Would highly recommend for a casual drink, date night or any special occasion.
Came here for my 3rd anniversary.
Food was amazing! One of the best paella we’ve ever had (and we’ve been to Barcelona 2x)
We sat at the Chefs counter, best seats in the house.
Gave us free bubbly for our anniversary and a free vermouth cocktail for sitting at the counter.
We would (will) 100% come back here.
You are wonderful guests and we are so thrilled that you enjoyed your evening. We can't wait to see you again!
We were there for a bachelorette, which we put in the comments when booking. They provided us complimentary Rose wine as soon as we arrived. The server was absolutely wonderful and I forgot her name. We had a full experience with the food and she let us know what each menu item was and answered our questions. We ordered all 3 deserts to share and they were wonderful. Would be a fantastic date night or special dinner! We were so impressed with everything!
The service was unreasonably and inexplicably slow despite the restaurant being half empty.
Despite being a Spanish bar, listing only 2 Spanish beers, they did not have one of them. Of the 2 rose’s on the menu, did not have one of those either. Not a single Spanish cider. The tapas selection and portions were on the small size, and presented as ‘precious’ for the most pedestrian of items, with generous prices attached. Sadly disappointing and unremarkable. Nowhere near the quality, choice or warmth on offer at Patria across the street. This restaurant does not compare and does not deserve a return visit.
Thank you for your honest feedback as your experience means everything to us. We are an independently owned restaurant with a very small team working tireless hours to ensure everyone's experience is remarkable; we failed to do so in your case. We apologize for not having all of the offerings that were listed on our menu as we work with small suppliers in Spanish beers and wines which can make availability unpredictable. We hope you will give us another chance to make up for shortcomings.
A taste of Spain in Toronto, absolutely worth the trip to King West.
Wonderful Spanish tapas. Have been to many Spanish tapas locations in the city and this is by far my favorite. Have been here three times and have never been disappointed by the food, service or ambiance. What a wonderful experience.
Everything on the menu was cooked perfectly, loved the wagu paella. Really liked the service but the food was even better than expected. Will go back again.
