Delicious food with wonderfully complex flavors. Knowledgeable service, great ambiance. Highly recommended!
Anton and Geoffrey were excellent hosts. They guided my wife and I through one of the best meals we have ever had. This place is a true gem.
Outstanding. The waitress knew the menu and provided valuable guidance to tailor our meal.
I thought the owner was enjoying himself to much with his friends and the bar...
We (4 of us) went for a special occasion and ordered the tasting menu. They accommodated one of the non-meat eaters extremely well. All the courses were excellent and beautifully presented. All the servers we had were friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.
I went to DaiLo for a graduation dinner for my boyfriend. We got the "DaiLo's Choice" menu and were not disappointed. Honestly, I expected to leave hungry because oftentimes set menus are very small portions. We not only had more courses than I expected but each potion was bigger than I thought it would be. Everything was amazing and to top it off, the service was great. Even though we were at the bar, our server checked in on us many times and was very helpful with our drink choices. Even though I asked for a bottle of wine under 70 dollars, the server didn't just recommend the most expensive in that range. She went through the effort of explaining her favorite in each category and why it would be good with our food. Would definitely recommend this experience for anyone looking for a special occasion dinner!
Good food good waitress but meal service was too slow, first course took more than 30 mins to come out and everything continued at that pace
Passion is palpable. Everyone we interacted with - servers, sommeliers, chefs and owner - was humble and nurturing, while obviously knowledgeable and confident. Every dish that hit the table was delicious - the 3 that stood out the most: the Pumpkin Truffle Dumplings (these will melt your heart), the Sichuan Braised Beef (the depth in this broth-ey sauce is simply soulful), and the Whole Fried Giggie Trout is a feast for salty eyes (DO NOT MISS finger-dipping the fried trout in the green curry aioli - a next-level saucey labour of love!). The pisco sour I started with was on point and the wines - a perfect pair with each course. Still thinking about the Alsatian Chasselas - thank you for the little taste of this odd-ball wonder wine.
Good dishes, nice variety
Our experience was amazing. The food was fantastic, and our server and any staff we spoke to were very knowledgeable about the food. Our server provided a wonderful and detailed recommendation when we inquired about wine to go with dinner. We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and the ambiance was wonderful. My only concern was that we were told we could only have a high top table, even though we had made a reservation prior and the two tables beside us were not sat in the 2.5 hours we were there. By the end of dinner it was a bit of an uncomfortable seat. We did have an absolutely amazing experience and we will be back!
Fantastic tasting menu. Every dish was delicious, and we came away very full.
We did the chef choice/special. Our last 3 plates took so long to come out that we weren't hungry when we got the food. Which was disappointing because it was delicious.
Super loud in the restaurant when it's filled.
We had 8:00 reservations, we found our service to be extremely slow especially at the end . We were done by 10:45 . Food was excellent !
This was the most incredible and innovative dinning experience I have ever experienced.
I loved it and wished it would never end.
All the courses, the energy and then food was just amazing!
Nick is an awesome eChef. The whole night was well orchestrated with the service and pairings. Of yes, the food was more than awesome
Thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. Different, interesting and very flavorful. I will be back.
Inventive menu. Good service. Would definitely return to sample more of the menu.
Incredible service and meal! Would highly recommend the chef’s choice option if you have any dietary restrictions. Dishes were timed perfectly. The octopus tacos have a perfect amount of heat and are a must try! Servers were friendly and explained each dish in detail, however it was hard to hear them over the noise at times.
Overall great experience and will be back.
Great atmosphere. Great food. Great staff. Great everything. If you're going on a date, ask for the high-top tables.
Very inventive food. We had the set menu which was as great (well, except for the ribs, they were sub-par).
Good quality of food, nice presentation. Good wine list - not huge but a sommeliere with a plan...
After reading all the good reviews, I guess my expectations where a little too high. Me and my husband were here to celebrate my husbands birthday. I have mentioned while making the reservation, but there was nothing done with this info. We took the menu and everything we ate was really good, but we could have used two more courses/dishes. Both according to the price and still feeling somewhat hungry after leaving the table. If you order the most expensive thing on the menu, I want to feel I got it all! That was not the case, but what we got tasted really good.
Try the tasting menu
Everything was amazing! Definitely do the tasting menu, they fully customize it to your likes and dislikes. Super awesome!
Food quality doesn’t live up to expectations. Service was mediocre at best. We didn’t like most of the dishes and voiced our disappointment to them. They were kind enough to comp the underwhelming dishes.
always magic such good service such good food. blessed to have dailo in the city
The food and service at DaiLo is second to none! Our server was knowledgable and responsive - striking the right balance of being there when we needed her and not hovering. She was able to provide excellent advice on the menu and wine list. The food is always incredible.
The food, atmosphere and ambience of the restaurant was incredible. Our server was lovely, however we waited for a very long time before receiving our bill at the end of the meal. I also would like to note that I included mention that we were celebrating a birthday in my original reservation, and there was no recognition of this at all.
We had the Chef's menu, one of our group members is pescatarian, they accommodated the menu with ease. Food was fantastic, exceeded our expectations. Service was amazing. The cocktail special was delicious. We will return again.
The food is just amazing! We keep coming back. Worth it all.
Absolutely, Bar on..... one of the best experiences of my life in a restaurant and I've lived in Toronto for over 50 years. Absolutely EVERY staff member was exemplary knowledgeable and friendly. All the food was outstanding Fusion which is a must EXPERIENCE! so be sure to take the tasting menu for the 1st visit. I guarantee you we'll be back to visit regularly. Dialo has an affordable menu, excellent wine but not over the top, and great wine prices. NOW..... I could not finish this review without a rave review for Trevor the assistant manager which made our experience like we were rock stars. I suggest some restaurant owner would greatly benefit if they steal that guy Trevor! He is a Knowledgeable, Uber friendly and high energy force in this restaurant. I have never had a better dining experience with a restaurant manager in my life. Somebody franchise this concept STAT!
Tasting menu was outstanding. We sat at the bar and were well taken care of by the bartender and a variety of servers/food runners. Staff knew the menu items well and the flavors were bold and highly enjoyable. At $65/pp the tasting menu was an excellent value. We left feeling full, but not excessively so. Bravo, Dailo!
A fantastical adventure of culinary delight. We decided the chef’s tasting menu. A right choice for $65/ you receive a meriad of delights , plate after plate where we had to tap out after course 6
I will be back, it was a great experience in every way. Your team is hitting all the marks!
First time visit, celebrating an anniversary. Went with chef’s tasting menu and it was outstanding! Great service as well.
Would recommend advising guests if when reservation is made, that they are sitting at the actual bar as opposed to a table, even if it says “bar seating”. Also recommend playing music :)
Overall amazing experience!
Very tasty. Great ambience. The pricing was a little steep for what it was. Would recommend for special occasion but not regular date night.
Always so good! Get the tasting menu for something different every time, but make sure to get the pumpkin dumplings.
Ordered tasting menu which did not disappoint. They accommodated 3 different preferences, from pescatarian to apple allergy without blinking. Service was lovely and pitched and timed perfectly. If I had to choose just one dish, I'd come back just for the dumplings with truffle and pork crumble.
This was a great date night spot. Food was good. Service great. Atmosphere just right.
