Italian
In the heart of the Financial District, Modus Ristorante is Toronto's plush spot for refined Italian cuisine.

We host one of the Financial District's best patios with ample seating for all occasions. Modus might serve Italian food, but refreshingly, no one’s anxious to label it “rustic.” Modus’s menu takes recognizable Italian classics and re-creates them as fine-dining fares.

The restaurant offers an extensive 300-bottle wine program, with seasonally selected wine by the glass. A focus on Italian, Californian and South American wines provides excellent pairing for a fine dining experience.

Behind Modus is Sam Genkov, owner of the 23-year-old District favourite Bravi Ristorante.

The restaurant was not observing COVID protocols- did not screen at entry- several staff moved about the restaurant without masks all night. They had several large groups of patrons socializing together right in front of washrooms which made it awkward to access the facilities.

The waitress and the barmaid were not wearing their masks when they wereinside the restaurant. We took the appetizers meatballs and the salumi. The last one was made of supermarket pickled veggies and cold cuts a bit too cheap for $28.

Seated on a windy patio with a burnt out candle for more than 10 min before a server talked to us. Waited another 5-10 min for water. Couple next to us arrived 15 min after we sat down, had a lit candle and water before we did in the same section. Received their food 10 min before we did, etc. Mains were excellent. Apps were mediocre. Service could use improvement.

Food good to very good….service was excellent….a little on the pricey side. Washrooms could use a good cleaning if I was to be brutally frank….probably go back given the overall offering and location which is walking distance from a hotel I stay at often.

The service and food were great however the host of the restaurant was not wearing a mask. This caused some distress at the table whenever the host interacted with us. This should be addressed with the restaurant immediately.

First time back out with friends 😊. Night was supposed to be rainy but we were on the patio with a good sized umbrella so no worries. Everyone enjoyed their food choices (all different and all good). Our service was a bit slow at first but we were not in a hurry anyways. Would definitely go back or recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out!

We had a lovely patio experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which included the grilled calamari, lobster tagliatelle, and steak - everything was prepared perfectly. The dessert choices were limited, but we made due.
