Comfort Food
One of the Frank Gehry-designed spaces, AGO Bistro is conveniently located on the first floor with access from Dundas Street. The restaurant is casual chic: modern Danish furnishings are paired with acrylic tabletops in a multitude of vibrant colours. Etched glass and vertical-grain Douglas fir also accent the space. With a dedication to using the best local produce, menus reflect seasonal changes and availability. Ingredients are sourced from the finest suppliers and farms, and are cooked simply to showcase the natural flavours of the food.

    A very pleasant meal. The service was superb, the food beautifully presented and well-prepared, and the washroom spotless. It was the height of the noon meal time, so all tables were occupied, but the noise level was tolerable. Even with the full tables, the service was attentive and the food order arrived in good time.

    Great ambience, good service, very nice waiter though not quite as attentive as I'd have hoped; but a really attractive, comfortable venue.

    Overall good but service was pleasant but not professional (one main brought out while others were still on soup, wine not topped up, etc). Prices are high so the service has to match that in my opinion. Worse, the tipping options are defaulted to arbitrarily high levels (all too common now) and then added after the tax! Love the spot for it's convenience as an AGO member and generally high quality food and service but at these prices service needs to be better. Will probably look around for a better value option at future AGO visits. When we left around 8:00pm on a Friday night, the room was basically empty already. Surely a sign that patrons are opting out. Not hard to see why.

    Overpriced and not very good. The pancakes were good, but the chicken Caesar Salad was not, and the kids chicken fingers (2 small ones) ordinary. With fries, coffee and tea, $100. With a Chef and 3 Sous-chefs, surely the AGO could do better. Heck, I could do better!

    We had the prix fixe menu for dinner after visiting the AGO, and before our painting class. The food and ambiance were amazing. Great date night!

    The seating was excellent and I really enjoyed the fact that there is no background music. It is very nice to be able to talk to friends and family. The food was good and cam quickly. Service was excellent. The lady served with a smile and was very enthusiastic which was nice.
