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.

First time here. The food was superb. We couldn't get over how amazing the broccolini was! Also had the mushroom noodles and steak. Great service and beautiful ambiance. Loved the blue velvet seating, both inside & outside!

Food was terrific! Sharing dishes that are sufficient for 2 people to share at a time.
Expensive but absolutely delicious. Spacious indoor area, well partitioned and staff all wore masks.

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.

We enjoyed our meal very much.

Scallop salad- scallops were cooked to perfection, dressing with slivers of fresh coconut was amazing.

Halibut was very good. Again cooked to perfection and well dressed in peach salsa, tomatoes, pepper and dill. Everything came together to bring out the fish flavour.

This is a lovely place! Keep up the good work.
