Nice moody and romantic ambiance. Servers were young and new to the game but very kind, polite and did their best to serve, despite it being a very busy night.
Everything was great. Server might have been new though...
The food was slow out of the kitchen. From when our starter plates were collected it took over 1 hour to get our main course. Staff weren’t that apologetic. The Spaghetti was incredibly garlicky, to the point that it made myself and my wife ill the next day. Safe to say we will not be coming back.
Our server was fantastic and very accommodating. They could not do enough to ensure we were taken care of.
Will definitely return
The food was excellent, the service was great. A very enjoyable experience.
Server was friendly and went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. Enjoyed the winterlicious menu, would definitely return!
Had the winterlicious lunch menu and it was well worth it! the food was delicious, got the beef short rib and the pecan tart.
Should have let guests in who arrived 5-10 mins early for their reservation rather than make them wait outside. Food (braised beef) lacked seasoning, even with added pepper by waitress. Waitress was not very attentive.
I enjoyed the winterlicious menu - the food was delicious! The only downfall was the cold draft from the door and the service seemed very speedy - as if they were in a rush to get us done and out the door. I still had my appetizer in front of me when my main came and we were never asked if we wanted anything else, we were just given the bill. But when we did make requests, it came quickly! The servers were kind.
Lovely place, great food, attentive service and low noise :)
If you can't do Winterlicious because of the price point then dot do it
Loved the ambiance and vibe. Service was stsndard. Food was delicious. We participated in the Winterlicious menu and the Farafelle was a highlight.
The hostess was not friendly. She took longer than usual to bring the meals and never bothered to Check on our table. The appetizer was pasta and was not fully cooked. The desert had a taste of vinegar lingering, don’t know if it due to the plate and spoons not washed properly or they put vinegar in their desert! Would NOT recommend.
We did winterlicious at Archeo for our first time experience there. The space looked nice and was decorated well.
Our table was positioned too close to the entrance, and it was freezing everytime the door opened. This was not an ideal location for a table in the winter.
The food was overall underwhelming compared to other winterlicious experiences I have had. The short rib and sea bream were good. The farfalle was under cooked.
The service was not great. Two of our group order short ribs and they didn't come out at the same time. The server apologized for the poor service but nothing was done.
I would not recommend it due to the experience I had there.
Winterlicious dinner. Short rib was fantastic and really enjoyed the pecan tart with gelato. Great service. Our table was awkwardly placed but the staff tried to rectify the situation.
Good value and healthy and tasty food. We weren't rushed. Our waitress was very personable and knowledgable
We went for my Dads 60th Birthday and it was fantastic! The food was brilliant. The service was outstanding and they remembered his birthday through my reservation and brought him out a piece of cake and a candle! Thank you!
Thought the service and food were outstanding. Hard surfaces could be an issue it was busier in the context of noise levels
Great venue. Great service and the food was delicious. Will be back for sure. Wine list was small and limited to just so so wines - but we found one we enjoyed.
The food tasted fantastic and arrived quickly. The server was attentive and friendly. This is a great spot for Italian food in the distillery district.
Stick with the pasta. Had the duck and it was way undercooked and not edible
When a Server came up to take our order, we asked if there was a cocktail menu. He said he wasn't familiar with the menu as he just helping out and was not usual staff and that he would send someone over to take our drink order. After a while trying get someone's attention we finally got a cocktail menu. But things were already downhill at this point. The cocktails were no up to scratch. We ordered the ravioli, lobster pasta and pasta bolognese. The lobster pasta was good. I would avoid the rest. The price point does not match the quality of food. I would give this place a miss. They should have closed on Christmas eve rather than staying open and giving customers poor service.
Great service. Food is delicious and bursting with flavors. However, don’t go hungry; portion sizes are bite-sized not a whole lot of value for what you pay.
We were greeted by a very rude person at the front door, who scolded my friend for getting the time wrong (we were on time, she accidentally said the wrong time by 15 minutes and he got upset with her). If this place hadn't been the only restaurant without a 45 min wait in the christmas market area (it was empty aside from a few tables, we would have left right there). It is 'dressed up' like a classy joint, but I had to ask the waitress for a glass to put my beer in as she only put down the bottle and walked away. I also had to ask the second time as a fruit fly died in my first drink. Service was poor but the food was ok. Would not recommend regardless due to rude staff. It also wasn't a fun place, wasn't busy at what should have been the busiest time of the year (christmas market on the Saturday before christmas)
Very disappointed with the food. SMALL servings. Raviolio was poor (really no taste) as well Piadini Vitello was also mediocre. Spaghetti and meatballs were good.
Overall a celebratory meal turned into quite a let down, all due to the food.
We had a reservation for 3. We arrived an hour early as we were in the vicinity. They went out of their way to accommodate us. As a party of 5 vegetarians having a server who could recommend vegetarian options was a bonus. The egg plant soup is a must have!
Our waitress was friendly and sweet. The food was great! Might be helpful to tell people making reservations that they dont have to wait in the Christmas Market line.
Excellent, attentive service. Special thanks to Caroline. Quiet table was paramount; only thing is, that's where it feels a bit chilly every time the door opens. Quick recovery, though. Can't have everything! Located in historic Distillery District. Near theatre and new streetcar line: new loop, new streetcars.
Perfect comfort food meal on a damp day in the Distillery District. Service was great, food even better and very reasonable. Would definitely try this place again.
Overall very pleasant. A little on the noisy side.... but not too bad.
We were surprised at the quality. Our expectations were just so-so based on website and such, but good service and great food. We remarked that it was a dining experience in which each dish yielded very distinct flavors and textures. Some were familiar and some were surprises but none were boring or wishy washy or sloppy. And serving sizes small enough to feel just right in terms of how much one ate over a few courses. Noise level when we were there was excellent but it was very uncrowded due to Christmas Market Toronto people who made reservations to get free entry but then did not show for dinner (people, I can't believe you'd do that). Given the shape of the space, it might be much louder when full.
Disappointed with my luncheon choice of farfalle with mushrooms. My guest and I ordered the same meal although my portion was noticeably smaller. Farfalle also were undercooked in the centre. A portion of bread with the meal would have been welcome.
Lovely place in the heart of the distillery district. Authentic menu, delightful server, very nice wine. Booked online which asked if it was a special occasion and if i had a specific request. Answered yes to both with details but neither were honored which was disappointing. Nice evening otherwise.
Not enough food quantity on their apps for the price you pay. Selection was dismal.
Have been to Archeo over the years but with this recent experience, the food, notably the ravioli, which I had been looking forward to, was very disappointing. It was though it had been cooked and then after, fried in butter or oil and it was not tasty.
A good meeting place, wine and drinks pricey ... food ok. Service great.
If you want to pay a regular amount of money for a meal that is made for a squirrel, feel free to visit. Otherwise, save your money.
My meal was not very appetizing. - in fact, it was the most bizarre restaurant meal I have ever had. Our Antipasto was also the most unappetizing I've ever had.
The service was very slow, and there were only about 4 other tables in that night.
Although, they were VERY pleasant when they were at the table! They went over and above to try to fix the fact that I didn't enjoy my meal (I believe it was more my taste buds than that the food was bad - but it was a bizarre combination of ingredients, that didn't work well together.).
Would I recommend it? No, likely not.
Food was quite tasty. Wonderful atmosphere. Service was solid except the greeter who seemed a bit grumpy. Will go back.
Great space for events - great atmosphere
