Excellent execution of contemporary south East Asian fusion cuisine (with recognizable Filipino accent: ube flan). Everything was delicious, fresh (both food and conceptually) but starters were particularly strong. Service (Ashley) was professional, attentive and personal. One of the most enjoyable nights out we’ve had since COVID. Patio dining available (with heaters) in nice weather but not fully protected when raining.

This is an extremely overpriced shell of the mineral I remember. The wine selection ( very small) is marked up threefold. The cocktails which used to be featured are very poorly made, the oysters were the smallest specimens I have ever seen, the service was very haphazard. It was my daughters birthday and I always have a good time with them but I won’t be back to Mineral which is a shame because it’s at the end of my street

Our overall experience was perfect. The dishes were dynamic and the service was top notch. The ambiance was different from all the other restaurants in the area because it felt very intimate. Played awesome tunes, too.
Our new favourite place and will most certainly be coming back again and again.

A successful night out for 4 people because we totally enjoyed the food. The cross-cultural creations of Mineral’s talented chef and his team took us to an exciting joining of Filipino traditional flavours and the western part of the globe. The team’s delicate approach on their preparations uses old and modern techniques, cultural variety of ingredients that heightened the unique tastefulness of each dish. A memorable experience for sure. I like the staff too. Good location and ambiance.

I loved the kinilaw, ensaymada and pork lettuce wraps. The lingcod was too salty. The ube leche flan dessert is okay, but it didn’t really taste like ube nor leche flan. Excellent coffee. Attentive and friendly service. Would love to return and try their other dishes.

Service re: reservation was great. They called to confirm we were coming and then I changed from patio to indoor service (due to oppressive heat and humidity) and they were very accommodating.

Mineral is obviously a neighbourhood gem. We had an early Thurs dinner and the locals were filling the tables and picking up take-out bags.

We loved the menu which was small, but I appreciate the care taken by the chef creating the perfect mix of different flavours and plates - with something for everyone.

The service was good, but a little too much when we arrived (early). They were rushing us while we were obviously catching up/chatting while enjoying a drink when we sat down.

I recommend Mineral for a casually elegant and delicious dining experience.

The food is really out of this world! Especially loved the pork neck wraps and broccolini. Appreciated that the staff took the time to explain each dish/course and were able to answer all of our questions. Service was fantastic, attentive, and accommodating; never had an empty glass of water! What ties it all together is the wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning and is a must try for anyone looking to surprise their taste buds.

The food was amazing. The service was not.

I made a reservation over a week in advance for my girlfriend and I to celebrate her birthday. Upon arrival we were told that our patio table was not yet ready and we were seated at very awkward high top tables outside.

Realizing we were not getting a table anytime soon we ordered a bottle of wine and some appetizers to start. The appetizers were excellent, bottles of wine started at $85. The bottle we chose was $90 and other than the first glass I poured the remainder of the bottle myself. In addition to that, I had asked for extra napkins which never arrived ( had to ask twice), and had to ask for our waters to be filled.

Between the wine and our food, the bill for two people was $300. I don’t believe the level service was on par for a bill of this amount for two people.

After our appetizers we had to ask if we could be moved to a proper dining table, there was no proactivity or apology from the staff. We were eventually moved but at that point we had finished our bottle of wine and the waitress moved the empty bottle to our new table. When our main course has arrived we asked for a glass of wine of the same kind. It came out well after our main courses had arrived and was provided on compliments from the house.

As mentioned above, the food is amazing but due to the slowness of service, the awkwardness of having to ask for a table that we reserved well in advance, and having to pour our own wine, I don’t think we would return for sometime. All the staff members were very friendly and I think it was a question of them being under trained for service level, they were not rude or impolite in anyway. I hope that their service can be brought up to par with the deliciousness of the food.

Didn’t start well. Kept waiting for about 5 minutes while 2 staff said someone would be with us shortly.

Then the glass of wine was small and in the worst type of wine glass. No bar for cocktails.

And we were asked to keep our cutlery for the second course.

I almost don't want to write a review because it is so good I want the restaurant all to myself! Creative, interesting and delicious food! Everything on the menu is outstanding. The Pork lettuce wraps have me dreaming about them days later...the mushroom noodles are a must as well. My favorite place in my neighborhood and in all of Toronto. The decor is just beautiful as well. Cant go wrong eating here.
