Our food is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. The menu has been designed for guests to share plates, in an effort to create a convivial and social dining experience.

Our Wood-Fire Pizzas are a cross between Roma and Neapolitan styles; cooked in a wood-burning M.A.M pizza oven imported from Italy. It yields a crust that is thin but sturdy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavour imparted on the food is exceptional and unique.

Our cocktails are equally thought out as our food. Our bartenders serve up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.

    Pizza is the main thing here. We shared one along with a side dish vegetable and beer and two desserts. The can of Guinness had ice in the bottom. Freezing beer does not enhance it. All pizzas are one size and appear to have identical crusts - so probably are machine-made. The oven does a good job, and the choice of toppings is excellent. The server was particularly outstanding. She was genuinely friendly and helpful. We ordered two desserts (gelato and sorbet). They were okay but for some reason they took much longer to arrive than would be reasonably expected. The server did all she could to have the gelato person do two scoops but it took 30 minutes. There is a gelato place around the corner and I prefer their gelato and their service for this item. We chose to be outside on the "patio" that is along two sides of the restaurant area. One part is along the shopping mall roadway and the other is in a tunnel. The tables are well separated and there is no music. Both are okay. I would return to try a different pizza. I noted that those who ordered one pizza per person were leaving with food containers.

    It is a pizza restaurant and they ran out of pizza. The pizza menu was half the menu and limited the options to very small.

    Food and drink here are excellent. It was a cool evening so we sat inside but noise levels were super loud. I felt as if I had to shout throughout the whole night. Great that restaurants are busy again but would choose another night to meet friends. We went on a Thursday night and were not expecting it to be that busy.

    I did a reservation, when it was fine, I waited a few minutes but fine, I received the menu and 20 minutes passed and no one attended us so we had to leave the place and no one told us anything at all, I am very disappointed by the bad service, I expected a lot from this restaurant and that's why I went with my wife for our anniversary but things went wrong

    Everything is great. The service and food were excellent. It wasn't too loud for a group of friends to talk amongst one another. The server was very helpful in helping us with the foods, I have a friend who's allergic to nuts and they were able to help us substitute and make sure no nuts are in our foods.

    Came there for summerlicious. While the food and service was good, it turns out they don’t do summerlicious on Tuesdays (which happened to be the day we visited). This is not listed on their website or the summerlicious website, only in fine print at the very bottom should you book online through OpenTable. Don’t appreciate how obscure this information was to find and the restaurant should make this info more obvious if they wanted to participate in summerlicious.

    We were so excited to go out for a date night and the service at the Good son was not good at all! It took so long to get our order for appetizers. We asked to move from a couch that was super low to a table, the server said ok. Our drinks came out and someone else brought our food we asked him to put it on the next table where we were standing up to go sit! He just took the food back into the kitchen. We sat down at the new table and the server said oh they didn’t wipe it? Looks like no! She came back to wipe the table and asked us where our appy was? We told her we don’t know someone left with it! She seemed super confused! 10 minutes later the same appys came out we asked them what happened she said she doesn’t know! I asked for two water and ice that never ever came. We sat there finished our appys finished our drinks someone eventually came to clean it. We sat and sat empty no drink no water no one attending to us. The restaurant wasn’t busy. Finally the server came again and asked if we’re okay. My fiancé finally said no! We’re waiting for someone to take our order maybe another drink maybe water? She was confused again and said oh I thought someone else would take it! Right away my fiancé said well then just bring the bill! It was such a disappointing night!

    I am in love with this restaurant! I usually try to go in at least once a month if not once every six weeks. The staff are be on friendly and amazing. Today we came for some spicy margaritas and the bartender made them oh sooooo good that we had several. Today we decided to try something new so we had the broccoli which was to die for we ordered it twice. And we went for usual jerk shrimp and the short ribs. And they came out wonderful like so good that I’m still craving some more. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Great night. Our servers were very accommodating, moving us to another table as we were way too close to a table behind us. Might want to look at the seating plan for future as it is a bit tight. There were also a lot of flies. Overall excellent experience!

    Came here for summerlicious with a friend to celebrate her birthday. We ordered the kale and grape salad which was delicious but really could have used 50% more grapes, and the Brussels sprouts. These were a bit greasy but beautifully seasoned. For the mains we chose salmon and short rib. Both proteins were over cooked but the flavour was definitely there. For the price, I feel that the portion sizes could have been larger, but the short rib did come with a healthy amount of kimchi fried rice (also a touch over cooked and greasy but undeniably tasty) and the salmon came with a reasonable amount of potato and broccoli. For dessert, we got the carrot cake and panna cotta. Neither were stellar but the cake was beautifully presented with crispy carrots and edible flowers on top. It wasn’t too sweet and was the better of the two desserts. The panna cotta was too stiff but I liked the crumble that it came with. It provided a really nice textural contrast and a complimentary toasty, malty flavour to the milky, creamy dairy flavour. Service was attentive once the servers came around the corner to where we were seated, but overall service was slow. We had to wait a long time for someone to appear and serve us the next course. Maybe they were short staffed. The dinner for two was still pricy considering the portion sizes and room for improvement with the quality of food and speed of service. However, the staff were very lovely, the food was flavourful and the seating was comfortable. It would have been nice if they turned on the patio lights above our table when it got dark but it’s not a major problem. I would come back to share some of the larger dishes with friends rather than do multi-course dining.
