    MICHELIN 1 Star

    2022

Alo is a Toronto essential adept at merging French and Asian flavors on blind multi-course tasting menus that could include rack of lamb with Thai curry or Koshihikari risotto with a porcini emulsion. Add a prime heritage building location, and it’s no wonder this ambitious go-getter landed a MICHELIN star.

    The nine course tasting menu with wine pairings was absolutely delicious. The staff was kind and attentive and sitting at the kitchen bar was such an interesting experience. It felt like being front row on a cooking show - watching meticulous plates being created. Very much enjoyed our evening!

    This is a lovely place to celebrate a special occasion, or person you care about, or even to splash out with a foodie friend. Constant tasty surprises from the kitchen, delivered with a smile by knowledgeable servers. Sommelier a delight and helpful. Great location with the "cool" factor in a vintage red brick Toronto building. Lots of attention to detail but the amazing food is the big star here. Special and unforgettable.

    My husband and I recently dined at Alo Restaurant, and it was an unforgettable experience! From the elegant ambiance to the exquisite tasting menu, every detail was perfect. Each dish was a work of art, showcasing incredible flavors and impeccable presentation. The wine pairings complemented the courses beautifully. The service was outstanding—attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely warm. Alo made our evening truly special, and we can’t wait to return. Highly recommend it for a top-tier dining experience!

    The second tasting brought tears to my eyes and my husband’s Fitbit alerted him of an increased heart rate twice during our divine dinner. We absolutely loved our evening and all of the staff are charming, intelligent and kind. True class. It was the kind of unexpected fun that we will remember for a lifetime. It’s a happy place and the food is Michelin star worthy. Sending love from Detroit. We will definitely be back.

    Food is fine, but does not worth the money spent. Had better food elsewhere for better price.
