Reverie at the Park brings dream-like food & experience to Toronto's Little Italy. With a kitchen led by Jef Edwards and team we intend to take you on a multi-sensory experience. We take pride in our sustainable ingredients highlighted by our partnership with Forsythe Family Farms. We consistently push creative boundaries; it's evident in the harmony of the food, the cocktails & decor.

It all begins with a walk in the park; Here, you'll experience a new daydream; a Reverie. It’s more than meets the eye; it’s an exploration of flavour, a visual fantasy, & a journey through your imagination.

It's more than world class service; inspiring music, & it's more than the 40 seat restaurant adorned w/ blown glass fixtures and clouds of pearl flooring. It's more than floating trees, enchanting cocktail lists, & talented brigade de cuisine. It’s the reverie of tomorrow-served to you today. We all have dreams. Let us show you ours.

Excellent tapas style bar/restaurant. Great cocktails and very good food options. A funky neighborhood place with great style and ambiance. The only observation I would make is price: I read the cost would be 2 out of 4 for cost, but it is definitely more expensive than that. I would rate it at least 3 out of 4 for price.

Reverie has a nice, eclectic vibe/ambiance to it. It's a great spot to go on a date, celebrate an anniversary, or perhaps even a birthday/special occasion, or even just dinner. The service is usually outstanding and the regular bartender there is great at making craft cocktails and entertaining guests seated at the bar area. (Highly recommend trying some of their/his cocktails) On Sunday evenings they also have live music around 8-something to check out for a little bit of fun. The food-usually delicious, however the last visit I had there it was just ok.. Not sure if they had someone new in the kitchen or what. If you're going to eat, one thing to try from the menu is the gnocchi fritti, it's delicious! A must try. Worth checking out!

I went with 3 other people. The restaurant is unique in its lay out but very cool to dine in. From one side of the restaurant you see a cool lit bar to the other side where flames are flying. They are making one of there crafted cocktails by torching the wood from the bar.

Food was great, try a wide selection of dishes. Maybe ask the waiter to bring things that go well together. We had a mix of things that was a little disjointed but that was our fault. Pork belly was my favourite.

Enjoy.

Our second time here with another group of friends. Delicious food. Enjoyed sharing and trying all the dishes. We ordered 10 different dishes and both desserts and each one left us wanting more. Beautifully presented. The price for the variety and quality was very reasonable. The in house created signature cocktails were like nothing we've had. It was good to see that they have changed the menu introducing new items. Looking forward to going again on a Sunday evening to listen to the Billy Bishop band which we also enjoyed on our first visit. All round great experience for everyone.

Very unique place, a long space with interesting decor of hanging tree roots over the bar and a beautiful iron gate separates the dining area. Food was quite good, loved the smoked beef tartar and grass fed lamb, but expensive, especially the 3 average sized sea scallops for $19!
Service was average.

I would highly recommend Reverie at the Park to every foodie. The menu is handcrafted perfection from the food to the drinks. The service was absolutely outstanding from the moment we walked in, to the service at the table to even the chef who our table was seated beside who ensured our nut allergy was of the utmost importance and you could tell he was very passionate about his job. Beautifully decorated it was a marvelous experience and I will definitely be going back.

Where do I begin? The service was outstanding. Did a blind tasting at about $50 a person. BEST value I have gotten for a meal in a while. Truly a memorable dining experience. Food is full of favour and has a unique twist. The chef was on point... the veal, scallops, beef tar tar, gnocchi, etc. all exquisite. They have a smoked theme with their dishes... AND cocktails. If you enjoy smoked dishes, you’re in for a treat. All I can say is go and find out for yourself... I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. OH... and be social with the bartender, he knows his drinks and loves to have fun with it... just take a look at the fire blown sugar tulip he crafted for us (see image below).

Great experience! Gorgeous establishment, with friendly staff and delicious food. The cocktail menu is interesting and creative, especially the sage-infused Gin drink. Their food is just as enjoyable and creative. The gnocchi is a MUST - best I've ever had, by far! Excellent for a date night, with romantic atmosphere and cute styling. I definitely recommend this little gem!
