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.

Goodson is always amazing. Get the brussels sprouts - even if you don't like brussels sprouts.

The food was insanely good. My wife is very picky, and she polished her plate. I polished mine as well. We shared a chicken sandwich which was out of this world and a mushroom truffle pizza. They were both absolutely delicious. I would recommend to anyone who likes to eat good food!

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.
