The Good Son Restaurant
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.

Excellent cuisine and great urban casual environment. Service is amazing
I've been numerous times to the restaurant. Our server was amazing, I wish I remembered her name. Nadine?
Burger great, fish special my friend enjoyed, though small. Pizza DOP Margareta my friend said the crust wasn't cooked enough. Normally she loves the pizza.
Appetizers were wonderful, and wine choice.
I would definitely return.
They have a creative menu with delicious pairings. The jerk shrimp, mushroom salad, and wood fired pizza were all outstanding.
Amazing food with amazing service! Love the decor in the restaurant- really sets the vibe.
Steak Tartare is a beautiful thing, flavour and presentation.
The restaurant is nice and the service was great. We were seated right away and the sever checked in with us often. I had the eggs florentine. The dish was good, but I wasn’t blown away. Nonetheless, worth a visit!
Try the Cheeseburger and the steak Frites...*drool*
Atmosphere is amazing here!!! Staff are unreal and best of all, amazing food!!!!!
Our group of three ordered several dishes to share (which is encouraged by the menu.) Of the first two dishes served, one was incorrect. Our waiter made a nasty face while she took it away. She then came back to the table and insisted that I had ordered it, but said that she would take it off the bill (thanks!) Considering I had two witnesses, this was not only rude but ridiculous. Perhaps this is one of those badly managed restaurants that charges servers for their mistakes, but at no time should customers be accused of errors. If the waiter isn't going to write things down then they should repeat them back to make sure they are correct. The whole evening was ruined by her bad attitude and the food was only mediocre (except for the scallops which were good.) When we ordered dessert we were told the creme brulee "wasn't ready" (at 8:30pm) so we left.
It’s an amazing place with awesome food!
The Good Son never disappoints! Everything was perfect. We had the oysters, arugula and pear salad, a featured goats cheese pizza with roasted garlic and pickled peppers and finished it off with a delicious lemon cheesecake. Can’t wait to go back again!
Server was very knowledgeable
Went here last minute and dont regret a thing. It was amazing. Service to food to wine. Great vibe, well finished plates of food and I will be going back for sure.
Unlike past experiences food we have been disappointed by the food this time.
My pizza Margherita was well executed but the eggs Benedict for my partner where completely overcooked and the bacon was simply burnt. Wish I had taken a picture.
Great food. An eclectic menu with delicious late night eats that can satisfy anyone's craving. The interior was stylish and hipster. Severs were attentive and did not come off annoying.
Went on a Wednesday, great $10 pizza promo. Ordered the prosciutto pizza, brussel sprouts and burger. Every dish well balanced and perfectly executed. Outstanding attentive and friendly service. Will be back!
Food was great, but the service was so poor!
Our waiter was so unhelpful, rude and it ruined the whole experience for us.
Couldn't finish dinner the food was so disappointing
The food was flavourful, drinks were smooth, and the service was outstanding!
We came there just for nice meal and we were blown away.. 2 of us got a cocktail to start then 3 of shared a bottle of wine the cocktail and wine both paired great with our whole meal.
As we were looking for lite meal not trying to break the bank with decided to order 3 shared plates for the 4 of us. So we choose the warm mushroom salad & spicy Brussels sprout and the shrimp.. all amazing. I’m not a big fan of any salad but that mushroom salad was delicious a bunch to the face a flavour. And the oh the crispy spicy Brussels sprouts my god they were good. Best I have ever had( sweet salty, spicy, crispy, soft) simply amazing.
Then for main 2 of got pizza. One was the Mauana loa, and the other caprisoscaa. I went to Italy 4 years ago and I have been trying to
Find pizza that compares to the quality I got there. I FINALLY FOUND IT. The crust was amazing and the just the flavours on the each pizza were great. The rest of the table got the wood grilled octopus ( so tender so flavourful and found to be surprisingly earthy) then last but not least without a doubt the best for last the shortrib dish with kimchi rice and sunny side up egg. (OMFG!!!!!) amazing umami. In my personal opinion probably in the top 5 mouthfuls of food I have ever had in my life.
Then for dessert we all shared the lemon curd. They roasted banana creme brûlée. Double chocolate chunk ice cream sandwich with peanut butter ice cream. All the dessert were pretty but was wishing for something as good as the first 2 courses. But good basic desserts..
The server we had was very helpful, funny and good attention to our table.. but I didn’t like how they reach over another person reach the person sitting next to them. Instead of walking around the table. (There was lots of room and time to do so) but other then that. Thank you so much to the team at Good Son for great evening of fun and amazing food.. We will definitely be back!!
Great variety in the delicious brunch dishes. Excellent, friendly service. Noise level was a little high at times.
Favourite restaurant in Toronto. Server forgot our salad, cocktails were surprisingly mediocre, usually they are fantastic. Overall still great time, best room in the city.
A lady never kisses and tells.
Had a truly amazing experience , the ambience was beautiful , the service was impeccable, the staff were accommodative and I couldn't have asked for a more memorable meal!
Crystal and her team are fantastic. My wife and I have been to The Good Son approximately 15 times for different special occasions and the staff (both front of house and back of house) never fail to impress us. Incredible cocktail menu, no variance in food quality and consistent, friendly service. Highly recommended.
Great place. We had a small group of 4ppl for a late dinner with resos. We were seated quickly. The ambiance was alive, many ppl (it was Friday night), but not overly crowded. It was loud but you could still carry on a conversation. Beautiful decor, high ceilings, clean bathrooms. Food was excellent. Would highly recommend.
Brunch on Sunday - eggs Benedict were delicious and the Tartare as well
One of the worst servers I’ve encountered.
It’s like he was on another planet. This guy messed up our order and compensated his poor service by displaying rude, unprofessional and passive aggressive behaviour.
I gave him a 10% tip which he didn’t deserve and he seemed quite annoyed.
What’s the service of Toronto coming to???
Very creative cuisine and a great service. Attentive staff and very delicious food
Fantastic food, friendly and attentive service, great atmosphere and good value.
Went for dinner with my family, 5 of us for the first time. Firstly, coolest room. Super warm, high ceilings and very spacious. They could practically double the number of tables but love that your now cramped in next to the table beside you. Our server was Bryce I think and he was just fab. All over it, throwing in recommendations, chatting but not tooo much. The floor manager (I only assume) came round regularly. Plates cleared promptly, drinks replenished etc. So I always get the classic arugula prosciutto pizza everywhere and this pizza let me tell you. To die for. Prosciutto, arugula, spicy chilli oil peppers, sundries tomato and the creamiest cheese. The rest of the table had the pappardelle, jerk shrimp, Brussels, sopressata pizza, warm mushroom salad, tartare and scallops. All fantastic couldn’t recommend enough. Will be back 100%.
First time visiting The Good Son, and will definitely be back! Fantastic decor and professional, yet entertaining and youthful staff. A very unique spot that is a "MUST" in Toronto. Steak tartare and their version of "Hawaiian" pizza were top.
I went for dinner with my boyfriend and in-laws on a Tuesday evening and everyone loved it! It was busy but had a great ambience and wasn’t too loud. The service was amazing - very attentive and helpful throughout the meal. Our favourite dishes were the Brussels Sprouts and the short rib, but everything we ordered was great. Will definitely come back on a Wednesday for $10 pizzas!
best egg benedict ive ever had, drinks were awesome too, if i lived in toronto i'd try to find a place close to this restaurant!
Excellent restaurant! Everything is great, specially the food and service! The place and its ambience is awesome
Love ! Always great food and service !
Loved everything about this place. Food was amazing, ambiance on point, great service too!
A heavenly foodie find. Scallops cooked to perfection, grilled octopus as well, and a surprise embellished birthday dessert of exquisite lemon curd topped with the freshest blackberries and blueberries, and a sprinkle of cookie crumb that gave the slightest wave to the heavy crust that lemon tarts usually have. Our waiter was attentive and personable. A delight around.
It was special 10$ pizza evening ! Great deal for fabulous food :-)
