    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.

    Fun dishes, very delicious and excellent quality - just a little too sauce heavy for my taste on a few. Great experience overall. Service was exceptional! Notably, it is quite chilly in the restaurant specifically if you’re seated under a vent, so I would absolutely recommend bringing a blazer or cardigan

    What an amazing experience from start to finish. It was our anniversary and we started with a complimentary glass of bubbly. We were seated in a corner round booth and had the window behind us and so a full view of the restaurant and kitchen. The water was complimentary, both still and sparkling which was also appreciated. The service is the best we have ever experienced, everyone was polite, knowledgeable and accommodating. Although it was a set menu, they took care to ensure we were comfortable with the items, and if not offered a substitute. The evening was rounded out with a beautiful dessert course including a tiny anniversary cake. All, just outstanding!!

    Words cannot explain how great this restaurant is. It is an amazing experience that is hard to compare to any other we've been to. This is truly one of the best restaurants in Toronto (if not the very best). I tried countless times to get into Alo, after all these attempts my wife was able to miraculously get us a booking to this restaurant for my birthday, and I am overjoyed we did. From the moment you get into Alo until the second you leave you are whisked away into a dining paradise. It is not just about the food it is the experience. You wouldn't suspect it entering Alo, but once you get upstairs the wonder begins. I wanted to wait a few months before reviewing this one to see if I felt the same way, and the feeling has not subsided. If ever, the time has made me appreciate Alo even more. As we go to other restaurants we leave them with a void, feeling like they have not done enough and inevitably comparing them to our experience at Alo. The service was absolutely tremendous. At no point did we have to wait for our needs to be taken care of. There was always multiple people there to pick up for each other. Every item we tasted was stupendous and topped what we have tasted in the past. The buttermilk bread was the softest, most delectable I have ever tasted. I particularly enjoyed our protein part of the dinner. The menu is ever evolving and ever changing so what you eat may not be the same as what but I doubt that you would be disappointed once you visit, everything is absolutely sumptuous. The price was quite reasonable for what you get and I would not be surprised if the rates increase given the incomparable quality of this restaurant. We can only compare Toronto to what we have been to and, so far, this is the best experience we have had in Toronto so far! Try your best to visit Alo as soon as possible!

    It was a good experience and the food was unique. They were able to accommodate all the food I can't eat and modified it for me as I was pregnant. Service was top notch and would recommend people to try as they always change their menu.

    Went for my boyfriend’s birthday. Was treated exceptionally well during confirmation of my reservation and throughout my visit. Each bite is full of flavour. The staff are attentive. The meal was absolutely amazing.
