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.

    We enjoyed the restaurant. Great ambience and service. Salad and fries were amazing. Pizza was good just found the middle too wet to hold. Wish it wasn’t so wet.

    Very tasty food. Good ambiance. Nice cocktails. Service was a bit disorganised. Servers were very friendly, but rushing to take plates away while people were still eating!

    Had a Sunday brunch and the atmosphere was great, very open space. Most importantly, egg benny was amazing, def worth the price. Servers were great too. Thanks!

    Atmosphere is fun. Food service is very good. But, bar service was very slow - took way too long for drinks to be delivered - not the bartender's fault - he needed help. To have only one bartender for the entire restaurant was not good staffing. Food is good but inconsistent. The mains (pizza/steak frites/mushroom pasta) were very good but stay clear of the appetizers - particularly the so-called jerk shrimp - four small over-cooked, under-seasoned shrimp - for a cost of $24! We will go back but will stick to the pizza......

    Went there for a Sunday lunch and so pleasantly surprised to see 50% off on all wine by the bottle! I was happy with my egg benedict and would consider it one of the best I've had so far in North America. My friends had a pizza and loved it.

    Not worth the price anymore, used to be so good! Has gone down hill recently, and would not recommend now. Don’t go for drinks cause they are not good, not done properly, and really expensive.

    Sadly disappointed with the quality of food. The mushroom pappardelle was bland and the piccante pizza was covered with far too much cheese and tasted terrible.

    Took my sister for her birthday. The mushroom pasta is delicious. I’ve had it before and it did not disappoint. Told the host that it was her birthday and she said they would bring Alice of cake with candle after dinner. Was a piece of carrot cake that was not too great so no one really ate it. Note they charged $14 for this piece of cake. I’ve never had a restaurant charge for this kind of gesture before. When I questioned the waiter, she seemed uncomfortable. I just left it alone as I didn’t want an awkward moment for my guests. Will likely not return because of this.

    When arriving the hostess was on the phone for five minutes before helping us and then I needed to ask her to send a server to our table for some service. Once our server came, everything came out promptly and was delicious. The interiors are so unique and the pizzas are great sharing size

    The food was good albeit Brussel sprouts and fries are ridiculously overpriced. Extremely loud in the restaurant making it very hard to have a conversation. It was my son’s birthday and I mentioned it in both the open table reservation and to the hostess when I arrived. I was expecting a small gesture such as a cookie/ice cream to acknowledge the birthday but NOTHING. Most restaurants do something to acknowledge a birthday when they know about it and I was very disappointed that they did nothing.

    Always happy with the food and service at The Good Son. We tried the pesto mushroom pizza, highly recommend. The lemonade is always very refreshing, not many places offer lemonade so it’s definitely a nice treat when you don’t want an alcoholic beverage.

    The bulgogi short ribs were great, same with the mushrooms. However, the burger was really basic and the jerk shrimp was small and not worth the value. Great ambience and the service was great. Would recommend and would go again

    Love The Good Son. Regularly come for the Brussel sprouts and BulGo gui. Burger is amazing too. Mushroom pasta and carrot cake were ho-hum. Terrific staff and beautiful place. Wasn’t crazy about the game being shown last night, and the noise it created but sort of understand because of playoffs. Hope its not a regular thing though as I will be back.

    Nice ambiance but food was ok. Decor was nice but not exactly functional (sat at a round table with very low captains chairs, making it awkward to eat). Tried the seared Tuna appetizer and found it bland. Had the Natalina pizza which included pancetta that really took over the salty flavour profile. However, I would recommend the cocktails, well made and delicious.

    The service was par excellence. I got to my reservation after a five hour trip and it was like coming home. I was able to relax, excellent service, fun and knowledgeable staff. A wee bit noisy, but I contributed to that! I will definitely go again!
