Our menu is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. With a focus on local and seasonal organic produce, hormone free and free range proteins, 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.

Everything about my meal at The Good Son was excellent. The service was very attentive, friendly, and helpful. My wine glass never got below being a 1/4 full before someone was refilling it from my bottle. We had olives and brussels sprouts to start and shared the capricciosa pizza and bucatini pasta as our main. Everything was delicious and the pizza is my new favorite in the city.

First time at The Good Son, had fish of the day and it was excellent. Wait staff was very accommodating. Unfortunately though, the place is extremely LOUD so don't expect an intimate environment....only a fun one ! Will go back !

I'm not usually so generous with the stars, but really, my friend and I, who had chosen this restaurant for it's nearness to our theatre destination, were so pleasantly surprised by the place. The ambiance appealed to us the moment we walked through the door. It was both lively and warm; loved the distressed leather chairs. Not too noisy to carry on a conversation. Between the two of us my friend and I enjoyed some nice wine , oysters, one extraordinary pizza, delicious spicy brussel sprouts, and a perfectly done piece of fish served with a generous portion of asparagus and smashed fingerling potatoes. Our server was a delightful woman named Nicole (apparently the place is crawling with Nicoles) who was super-nice and very knowledgeable. Will definitely return when I'm in the area.

Oysters from P.E.I were simply oysters. The ceviche was overly lemonated, the only good thing about that dish was the pistachios which elevated and gave the dish an earthy touch. The Jerk Shrimp was spectacular! Crunchy, soft, the slaw was also simply amazing! The grilled octopus for one, was not crispy and was lacking that “snap”. It was kind of impressive how octopus had somewhat grill char marks, yet zero textural difference as well as a watery “tuna like” texture on the inside

I'm very happy to see this restaurant still thriving. It has a great vibe and fits in well with the neighborhood. In addition the staff is very friendly and professional. The kitchen keeps it simple, they know their flavors and what works.

A fantastic Queen West location. Their pizza is done in a wood fired oven and keeps us returning time after time. Their menu selection is good and the open style kitchen makes it fun to watch.
The bar selection is nothing short of amazing and the bartender (s) are very creative.
The staff is friendly, attentive, and can describe things on the menu with great knowledge.
Our favorite pizza place by far.

Group of 3 - ordered pizza, wine, cocktails, and beer. (6-8pm)

We went on a Tuesday night for my sister's birthday. We had pizza and it was delicious!!! All 3 of us enjoyed the food and drink a lot. And our server (Nicole) was so lovely.
Our one caveat is that we originally tried to book a group of 8 for a Friday night birthday dinner. It seems larger groups require a fixed menu and a minimum charge per person which we did not want. Would have really liked to have been able to sit the whole group and allow us to order from the regular menu. We understand large groups are difficult (especially with separate cheques) but so many other restaurants are able to accommodate this - usually with just an automatic gratuity added on.
Regardless... the food was amazing, the service was great, and the atmosphere is really nice too! I would definitely recommend for smaller groups. And if you have a larger group and don't mind the stipulations I'm sure the fixed menu would be delicious too.
