Our menu is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. With a focus on local and seasonal organic produce, hormone free and free range proteins, 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.

We had a fantastic experience at The Good Son celebrating the birthdays of our two “good sons”. Food was amazing, service outstanding- and the decor and ambiance conducive to making everyone feel comfortable.

I have been telling anyone who will listen that 2 things happened to me at The Good Son: (1) I had the best Manhattan I have ever had in my life and (2) I had the best steak (steak frites) I have ever tasted. Pair that with the warm and welcoming ambiance and friendly service and it was a superior experience for me. I would definitely recommend The Good Son - thank you!

Went for brunch. A bit of an odd interaction with our server. Our server constantly kept checking up on us, our food came in great time, it was delicious, but they did lack some customer service skills. My wallet was on the table and he grabbed my credit card out of my wallet. It was not a deal breaker and I definitely will be back but I think this experience was a bit concerning.

Some of the blandest food I've ever had a restaurant in Toronto. The pizza was absolute garbage, it was soggy and tasteless. Service was fine, but was a complete waste of time and money.

I heard a lot about this place and always wanted to give it a try. I had grilled octopus which was nice. The food was decent in general but wasn't exceptional to give it a 5 star. I will go back sometime.

I've been numerous times to the restaurant. Our server was amazing, I wish I remembered her name. Nadine?
Burger great, fish special my friend enjoyed, though small. Pizza DOP Margareta my friend said the crust wasn't cooked enough. Normally she loves the pizza.
Appetizers were wonderful, and wine choice.
I would definitely return.

Our group of three ordered several dishes to share (which is encouraged by the menu.) Of the first two dishes served, one was incorrect. Our waiter made a nasty face while she took it away. She then came back to the table and insisted that I had ordered it, but said that she would take it off the bill (thanks!) Considering I had two witnesses, this was not only rude but ridiculous. Perhaps this is one of those badly managed restaurants that charges servers for their mistakes, but at no time should customers be accused of errors. If the waiter isn't going to write things down then they should repeat them back to make sure they are correct. The whole evening was ruined by her bad attitude and the food was only mediocre (except for the scallops which were good.) When we ordered dessert we were told the creme brulee "wasn't ready" (at 8:30pm) so we left.

The Good Son never disappoints! Everything was perfect. We had the oysters, arugula and pear salad, a featured goats cheese pizza with roasted garlic and pickled peppers and finished it off with a delicious lemon cheesecake. Can’t wait to go back again!
