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.

Charming decor and good but limited menu. Everything we had was delicious -- warm olives, pizzas, korean ribs, brussel sprouts, and banana creme brulee. Would recommend and go back!

Not a bad thing about this place. Server was witty, food was exceptional, service was fast, table bussed promptly but not intrusively, and the drinks were delicious.

The restaurant was excellent and food was delicious! I came here to catch up with a friend and we both were very impressed with the service and how good the food was! The only downside was that it was very noisy, but with a popular restaurant that should be expected

I came with high expectations, and unfortunately they weren't met. Their brunch menu is very simple and yet not high quality. Portions are quite small, the side dishes are ridiculously tiny. The decoration is very nice.

My girlfriend came back for our 2nd meal this month. Before I get to the food, I want to call out the excellent service we had from our server, Nicole. She was warm, welcoming, and added to the dinning experience

Everything we had was delightful. The margarita pizza with buffalo mozzarella was excellent, the burger tasted like a Big Mac on steroids and the fries cooked in duck fat gave a really unique flavour as did the malt vinegar mayo. On the salad front the arugula & pear salad with walnuts was fresh and flavourful. .

For desert my girlfriend and I had a cappuccino and americano respectively. They were both out of this world! We also split the a blue blueberry tart with a scoop of lemon sorbet.

Generally the food was great. Especially loved the warm mushroom salad which was recommended by the waiter. Other dishes we enjoyed were the French fries, and arugula pear salad and scallops which were very tender. The noise level was a bit high for one of our party who wears hearing aids. Is there an area which is a bit more quiet? We should have asked. Wait staff were pleasant and efficient. Worked well as a team. Conveniently located across the street from The Great Hall.

The pastry in the tart sets a new standard for pastry.

I used to love the Goodson but that last two times food has been subpar. Two of us ordered mango salads, i would not call these salads but a slaw, all very one note in a big bowl. This should only be served as a small side to a rich dish as vinegary. Neither of us finished these and the Good son was nice enough to come these. Also all out dinner were raw, salad and steak tartar, food took 90 minutes, how is that possible. We’d been there two hours at this point and shared two bottle of wine. Even the other dishes were ok but nothing great. I don’t believe I’ll be returning to the Good Son unfortunately. In a city like this one with so much choice, focus on the quality of food and your menu as well as service; to wait 90 minutes a manager should have come over to apologize. Our waiter was lovely but it doesn’t make up for the rest of the experience.

The meal took a long time to arrive, we were all served at the same time but my husband's food was cold.
The service at the beginning of our meal was good but after dinner was served our server had a lot of tables to attend to so we did not end up ordering dessert, it got too late.
