    We were a group of 6 people wanted to try a michelin star restaurant. We had the 8 course tasting menu. Overall we all agreed that the taste might be a bit strong to our liking. Service was great! We did have a great time getting together with some friends.

    Celebrating our friends 70th birthday at Don Alfonso was EXCEPTIONAL! Every single moment from the reception to the amazing server (Ashley) to the incredible food and presentation to the thoughtful and delicious birthday treats was EXCEPTIONAL! Meeting the charming Chef Daniele Corona giving us a tour of the kitchen telling us with such passion about the tomatoes used in the amuse bouche along with complementary lemon cello, chocolate and biscotti was just the perfect ending to a most wonderful evening. Not going to wait for a celebration to go back! We loved it ♥️

    A welcome back dinner for our friend. Amazing service from Kelly Kwan and team! For someone who usuallly doesn’t like Italian, Don Alfonso was a pleasant surprise! Desert could be better but overall well rounded and nothing disappointed. The crab ravioli for my daughter was actually very tasty and better than our pasta dish in the tasting menu.

    We had a late Friday night reservation, waiting on our table in the lounge, we were given a seat at the bar and comp Prosecco for waiting. Our food and drink was delicious and the presentation was impeccable. Our server was helpful and attentive. She recognized my wife's birthday with an amazing dessert and unexpected wine cork gift. We enjoyed a special night in Toronto, thank you Don Alfonso 1890.

    Getting the right table is key. Otherwise, it’s just a mediocre experience. The staff do their best. Noise level is too loud for my liking. The view at night sucks depending where you sit. Overall there are much better places to visit. Madera House is much better on all levels

    The view was very nice. I liked how we can see the kitchen and see how the food was prepared. The price is very reasonable considering the quality of the food you get. The only complaint I have was the food was very salty, which covered the flavor of the food.

    We had a wonderful and memorable experience at Don Alfonso. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. The drinks were exquisite.The bartender Cayden was like a master of cocktails in a competition, highly skillful and fascinating to watch. Steven made excellent suggestions to the drinks and menu selection. He was courteous and attentive. I truly enjoyed the Open Fire and Mai Tai drinks.The bread was made in house and it was sublime with the black truffle butter. The Nova Scotia lobster was delicious. The Rib Eye steak from Japan simply melted in my mouth. The restaurant also offered a free dessert platter for my partner’s birthday which was a lovely surprise. Overall, the food, the service and the ambiance is impressive and we will definitely go back there again.

    Food and its presentation were outstanding! The bison was one of the tenderest cuts of meat I have ever had!! Would go back just for that. Our server, Liam, was knowledgeable when asked for recommendations and provided excellent service from beginning to end! Tables were well spaced to allow for conversation but one table was exceptionally noisy which made it hard to hear, but when they left, all was good. I definitely need to go back to try other dishes.

    We had the $140 tasting menu and it was just enough food for us. The food was excellent. We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday boy was treated especially well with a special dessert and gift. Frank, our waiter, took good care of us, as did the rest of the staff. It was pricy but it was a memorable evening!

    The food is amazing, no doubt. Service could be better in timing and notifications. Notification meaning... We weren't told they don't do corkage so that's a bit of a bummer after bringing a $300 bottle of wine. The timing of drinks and food also missed the mark a bit, example we usually expect coffee and tea to come with dessert right away to help with the sweetness, but it took a while.
