Why we love it

Executive chef: Nick Liu

From the food to the ambiance, DaiLo is bold and buzzy. Chef-owner Nick Liu blends French cooking techniques with his Chinese heritage to create playful dishes while showcasing serious culinary chops. The hip space attracts a lively crowd for nights that begin with dinner at DaiLo and end at its upstairs cocktail bar, Lopan.

    Amazing dining experience and incredible food. Pricey for sure, but I'd say the tasting menu experience was worth the price. The service was amazing and we were made a menu of all things we liked and offered mocktails to complement. Would def go again!

    We had the premium chef’s tasting. They really customize it for you so can be surprised with a great meal, however you can rest assured— if you’re not into say seafood or red meat, they’ll take that into account. Amazing service, great people and even better food at a great price.

    The premium chef's choice menu was stellar. The food at Dailo is always innovative and high quality. Such a pleasure to try each new dish. I made the mistake of not ordering the wine pairings - would highly recommend doing this. The cocktails and wine selection is excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

    We paid for the tasting menu, but it was coursed over two hours and was very unbalanced. The first 4 courses were about one bite per person, which left us starving for the first hour and a half, with the bulk of the meal only arriving in the final course. The food was great but with how long it took and how expensive it was, it didn’t feel like good value. A bill for two of us totalled over 500$ but did not receive the type of experience you would expect from a meal that pricy.
