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.

I ordered the salmon special and was very disappointed. Basically it was a filet with asparagus and fingerling potatoes. Little to no flavor and I could made the dish at home.

We went to this restaurant for my birthdays. It is also my daughter ‘s favourite restaurant. We shared the steak tartare and the warm mushroom salad. Both were excellent. I had the fish special( I think it was sea brim) and my husband had the pasta dish. Again they were both excellent. We also had deserts, a brownie and and cream brûlée’s for me. It was an excellent meal. We will be back.

Great atmosphere, service and variety and creativity of food. I felt the wild mushroom salad had too many cremini and not enough wild mushrooms (or enough variety) but was still a delicious dish.

Food and service is spectucular. The night we went they didn’t have one of items we ordered on the menu, but the waiter came back and provided a different dish and covered the expense for it because of the inconvenience. The recovery for something small was amazing. Will definitely be going back!

Our server, who did tell us her name but after multiple bottles of wine it fails me, was incredible. Just a genuine, attentive person. Her descriptions of the flavour profiles of my drink and the aguachile were bang on. The manager was equally attentive, genuine and funny. It was crowded from a wedding so the tables were close but they were a good size and we had a great night. Originally asked if we were okay with 2.5 hours to dine, they let us stay well past that, never hovering, always topping up our water and our wine. A super fun night out- can’t wait to go back!!

First time at TGS. Choose because near BMO Field, took reservations so guaranteed to get dinner before the game. We were welcomed (and expected) right at the door. The ambience suited us perfectly (kind of like a faculty club). The service was very attentive (which we appreciated). The menu was sufficiently varied. The food arrived very quickly and was nicely presented. The quality was way beyond "pub food" (thankfully). We felt well taken care of. This restaurant is professional from start to finish.
