The Only On King opened its doors in the heart of historic downtown London, a stone’s throw from Budweiser Gardens and the Covent Garden Market where the casual dining restaurant sources most of its fresh ingredients.

Chef Paul Harding is serving sophisticated but approachable French and Italian cuisine.

The menu, which also features ingredients purchased from local southwestern Ontario farmers, boasts several dishes that are priced $29 or less.

Located in a historic building and former dairy on King Street, the restaurant is a relaxing, warm and inviting space to enjoy an inspired meal and the company of family and friends.

The intimate dining room, which features photographs of historic London, is a true gem for the city’s restaurant-goers.

This restaurant is closed. We did not realise until we got to the restaurant for our reservation but apparently they closed the Sunday prior so we had to make last minute arrangements. You should this restaurant from your reservation app to avoid more disappointed customers.

The restaurant called us in the afternoon to tell us that they couldn't accommodate our party of 6 for that night even though it had been confirmed the previous week. I had to try to find another restaurant that would accommodate us and contact everyone to let them know of the change.

Enjoyed the meal but it was quite loud and my aunt is a bit older and had trouble hearing our conversation. Some sound dampening would help.

The menu, while a little small. had a lot of variety. They were accommodating to make a deletion of an item from my entree. We found the service a little slow although we were in no rush to eat.

After dining at TOOK a couple nights ago I wanted to tell anyone and everyone who would listen about our experience! The server was friendly and personable, the atmosphere was cozy and warm, the food was delicious - hands down the best restaurant experience I have had in quite some time! Thank you for your hospitality. We will be back, and I know I will be ordering the duck & the chocolate nemisis again - to die for! Delicious!

This was our second visit after a number of years. Reservation was handled very efficiently and we were seated with no fuss. Our waiter was very attentive but gave us our space and the pace of delivery was perfect. We both enjoyed the beer and cheese soup and then our main course. I had the flat iron steak which was cooked as requested and my partner had the vegetable salad. Overall a very pleasing meal for a reasonable price.

Went before the theatre as a treat for my mom. The food was delicious and plated beautifully, the Harvest Moon is a cocktail worth trying, and the wine list is short but excellent. I ordered a glass of wine after my cocktail but didn't have the menu in front of me; I thought I had seen a South American wine but couldn't remember what it was. I asked for a Malbec, and my server said they didn't have one, so I ordered a Shiraz. Moments later, our server returned and mentioned that they had a Carménère if I preferred (which I did), and I was very impressed that she thought to take a look and make sure I was getting the right alternative.
