the food was very delicious, we had a 7 year old boy who is a picky eater and he gave them a thumbs up on the food. He loved the eggplant appetizer... very surprised as he hates eggplant :). In addition to the food the service felt personal with little touch compliments of the chief. Will definitely return when in Toronto.

My husband and I did not enjoy the food or ambience at this resto. We only went because the reviews were so good and it's in our neighbourhood and yet we had never gone to it. We won't go again. Food was not commensurate to the price point.

Salad was excellent but the steak was overdone and not very well seasoned.
The other couple really enjoyed what they ate.
Overall I would recommend the restaurant, but they should take the steak off the menu.

I can't praise this restaurant enough. I think that this was our 6th visit and it was just as wonderful as the first. We shared the three special appetizers - beef tenderloin, smoked salmon and avocado/mango. The dressings on all three were delicious . The beef was my favourite. My guest had the duck, my husband had the fish special and I had the salmon. We each enjoyed our meal. The presentation, the service, the food and the ambiance were excellent. The little extras were also very important - the cheese, the sorbet cleanse and the limoncello. Of course, we each had dessert. With a bottle of wine and several other glasses ( there were white and red wine drinkers), the bill was about $100 per person and worth every penny. We will be back soon.

Spectacular. This was our first visit but there will be many more. Service as efficient, pleasant and unobtrusive as anything I’ve ever experienced, and we are a family with a passion for fine dining. Exquisite food. Succulent shrimp, beautiful pasta, magnificent pavlova. A wine list of select but beautifully articulate choices, such that there are numerous wonderful pairings for every course. Bravo! I am going again this week!

At last, a gracious and delicious neighbourhood restaurant! The service is warm and friendly; the small touches of Amuse bouche, palate refresher and after dinner lemoncello make it very special, as does the Birthday dessert!
We will certainly return soon and often; in fact, we're going for brunch today.

Everything was excellent - main dishes were amazing. Service outstanding. Quality and price for appetizer salads was not great; $21 for a pre-dinner salad of lettuce and oranges - a bit much.

Attended on a quiet night in April (likely quiet due to competing sporting events), This was our 4th visit to 12 Tables, and we have been impressed every time with the food, the presentation and the friendly service. Very pleased to have such a wonderful restaurant in our neighborhood.

We did not enjoy our meal at 12 Tables. For the price, it was nothing special. The only thing I enjoyed (but very very pricey) was the shrimp/avocado appetizer at $24. I ordered Branzino - tasteless. Also, it was served with some herb yet on the side there was an Asian dipping sauce that did not match the little flavour of the fish. My friends ordered mussels and they had to be returned as they were fishy and gritty. By the time they received another dish we were done our main course. The bread on the table tasted like “wonderbread” - not kidding - just a different shape.
Would never recommend or head back there.

service was very good salad was good but too much dressing the duck was good but bland .
They have glade air fresheners smelling up the place which was overpowering and that made it very unpleasant.
