About

Skin+Bones is a husband- and wife-owned restaurant located in the Leslieville neighborhood of Toronto. It is located inside of a century-old warehouse, giving it a sense of history and charm. From the decor to the plating, everything radiates a friendly ambiance that welcomes guests as soon as they set foot inside. Skin+Bones prides itself on being a farm-to-table restaurant and actively supports the local farming community by sourcing as many of its ingredients as possible from local merchants.



Many of the standouts on the Skin+Bones menu might be new to some diners, such as the grilled beef tongue or the pork and ricotta meatballs with a pumpkin seed and basil pesto. For an tasty experience, order the four-course, family-style meal. The menu of this unique offering changes nearly every day, depending on what the chefs have in store.

We had a wonderful evening at Skin +Bones. We had a last minute opportunity to get out without the kids & decided to re-visit this restaurant, as we'd seen many glowing reviews of its wine list. We chose the tasting menu & wine pairings,and had a wonderful meal with some truly intriguing wines. The service was friendly and helpful without being casual or hvering. The food was excellent in presentation, portion and tase. The only negative (which is common to many restaurants) is the noise. It was so noisy that it was difficult to hear the waiters explain the specials or the wines.

Greeted with a smile and some good cocktails. Dinner, once ordered took a very long time (45min) and was blamed on a medium well steak. Waiter did not check in to say it was taking longer than usual. Once food arrived, no check in by our waiter to see how it was tasting or to ask if we needed more drinks. Food was very good but portions were small for the price.

We were very disappointed after seeing such good reviews. I had the pork steak; over cooked and tough. Vegetables were very undercooked, I couldn't d cut the Brussels sprouts as there were too hard. My friend has the gnocchi which he describes as ok.

This was our first time and Skin +Bones, and I completely understand all the positive feedback. We wanted some place nice to eat before going to the new Crow's theatre and this was just perfect! The roasted carrot salad was a huge hit, as was the octopus. Very friendly service and they got us out in plenty of time for the show. We will definitely return if we are in the area!
