Firstly we all loved the large for six that was perfect for sharing plates. Every appetizer was outstanding. Main courses were good to very good. Will return and may just order a table full of apps.
All the food is good! Lobster risotto was so tasty. My friends and I split 4 desserts. I hate to be vague, but they really are ALL good. Service worked as a great team. Would go again!
Great food, warm and cozy place. It’s not too pricey for a place like that. Perfect for a date night restaurant. Highly recommended.
Loved it! Will go back! Everything was delicious. 😋
From the pita and dip, to the cauliflower app, to the mains (risotto dish and salmon dish), to the wines, to the pistachio dessert!!!
Charming and quaint, and you can carry on a conversation all evening and hear each other. A wonderful evening out.
Great dinner and superb waiter! This is a real find and I will certainly return.
All good, though $14 for a glass of Cote du Rhone that sells for less than $20 per bottle is a bit much.
Very good restaurent. My husband enjoy is steak ! See you next time when we will be in Toronto :)
Ok. Not great for price point.
Beat way to experience the many Mediterranean dishes is to get several and share! Everything we tried was delicious! I especially liked they grilled brussel sprouts! Yum!
Personnel très gentil!
We had a great meal on our first visit. The mains were Barramundi fish and lamb chops. Both mains were excellent. The lamb was cooked exactly as ordered. The chops are thick cut and very tender. Sides with each main went perfectly. A compact but nice wine list. Something for everyone. The service was outstanding. We look forward to returning with friends. A great find.
Above and beyond expectations.. this is a hidden gem in downtown area ..
Cauliflower appetizer was amazing. Barramundi flavorful. Strip steak - loved the risotto, meat bit grisly but tasty. Chic decor, fantastic ambiance, service was outstanding. Will revisit and recommend
I love that it isn’t noisy and you can actually talk to people. Definitely a reason to come back!
Very nice and quaint. Comfortable seating, great food. Good service, no complaints.
Definitely recommend. Good food, excellent service, good downtown location. I'll return.
Great food and atomosphere!
Great meal with great service. The cocktails where fantastic, and the food was excellent !
Took my girlfriend here for Christmas Eve dinner and drinks. We both loved it and would come again.
We booked late for an early Christmas Eve dinner. When we arrived we were greeted very warmly band showed to our table.
Our waiter was terrific, knowledgeable, and pleasant. He was happy to assist us and answer our questions.
The meals were quick to be plated and on our table, and tasted amazing. They were presented beautifully, cooked exactly as each person asked for, and tasted absolutely stunning.
The dining area was clean, warm, and very inviting. This is certainly a place I would highly recommend and would definitely be coming back to.
It was great for our table of 5, and would be cozy for an intimate dinner as well.
Outstanding food and great service! Our family’s favourite restaurant in Toronto for special occasions!
What an amazing restaurant! I can’t believe I’ve never been here. I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is absolutely incredible and the portions are so generous. I can’t wait to go back again! Well done Elm Tree and keep up the good work!
Food was excellent. service excellent. The chairs area hard and cold, should have some cushions on them or change to cushioned chairs. would definitely go back.
Excellent food, good portion. Ordered grilled octopus, lamb shank and veal chop. All very good.
Was there for a special birthday dinner and everything was perfect, my girlfriend had the best salmon she's ever had there.
The food was mediocre at best. My wife's lamb chops were overdone and my lamb shank didn't have a lot of flavour. Our server was very personable and accommodating, but the courses came too fast. We hadn't finished our pre-dinner cocktail before our appy was delivered. We hadn't finished our appy before our main was delivered. We were in and out in just over an hour. Having said that, the Caesar Salad was probably the best we have ever had.
This was the third time I’ve eaten at the Elm Tree. I keep coming back because it’s not too noisy; the food is excellent and different, and the ambience is warm and friendly. The severs are attentive without being obtrusive. Highly recommend it. Catherine
Really great place for a fun evening with great food to go with a great ambiance
Excellent food and service. Wonderful location!
Very lovely time at Elm Tree. The brussel sprouts. We’re amazing!
The service was impeccable and the meal was delicious. A great place for interesting dishes that are great value. The restaurant is now signed “The Elm” not “The Elm Tree”. FYI!
The Rlm Tree was the perfect spot before the theatre. The lamb, steaks and risottos all got rave reviews at our table. The server was beyond lovely and the atmosphere was incredibly comfortable. Would recommend and visit again as soon as I could!
The waitress was lovely, engaging, thoughtful and got our order in before the table of 18. Not your fault but the large table made for a noisy environment but everything else was first class.
A great restaurant with charismatic yet polite waiters. Also enjoyed the decor to provide a relaxed sophisticated atmosphere. The highlight is the food. Wow, a twist of known dishes, and new dishes altogether, all to die for. Will come back again.
Food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Great service
Best charred eggplant and Brussels sprouts and grilled octopus I have had
This is simply me favourite restaurant in Toronto! Everything is always lovely and delicious.
A gem, with not the "same ole" menu items, must go back more often
A wonderful experience! Gorgeous restaurant, friendly but unobtrusive service, excellent food. A great place for a conversation as unlike many restaurants, the music wasn't too loud. I had the beef carpaccio and the lamb chops. Both were perfect! Highly recommended.
The scallops, the striploin and the salmon were exemplary, especially the former. their rosewater ice cream was also the loveliest and freshest end to the meal.
