Opened in 2017. Michelin Recommended since 2022.

We first imagined Aloette to be the perfect diner that we’d want to dine in – a menu with a great cheeseburger paired with a fantastic and fun wine list, a long row of bar stools facing the bar and the kitchen, and an energetic atmosphere accented with an old school hip hop playlist. The buzz of the dining room mirrors the energy of the street on Spadina Avenue; the dining room itself mimics a train’s dining car. It’s a bistro-meets-diner-meets-internationally-inspired menu which is also representative of the diverse culture in Toronto. Our service team is upbeat and genuine but also deeply knowledgeable about the menu and offerings.

Brunch at Aloette was something we said we’d never do. But the city kept asking and we’re glad to be a new staple in the Queen West neighbourhood for mimosas, chicken and waffles, and piping hot coffees.

We hope you love our little diner as much as we and our team do.

    Not very impressed with the food, outdoor ambiance is basically next to the road/sidewalk. If you’re interested in being part of the city’s noise and foot traffic then you should be fine. I was expecting a more elevated food experience. Alouette cost more than George, which was definitely an elevated food experience.

    We got a last-minute reservation, so sat at the end of the bar; one could say it enhanced the experience. The service was excellent, barely surpassed by the unique and delicious food. The music was loud for a small place, but not too much so for two to have conversation.

    Food as always maintain at very high standard. I was a bit nervous in the beginning due to their recent change of staff in the kitchen, but nothing to worry about after the first bite. Service is impeccable, we originally were seated at the bar stool near the door, as the rest were full. After our cocktails I noticed the end table bar stools were available so I request to move down there ( I always enjoy watching their platting station operations) and they gladly accommodated my request. 👍🏼👍🏼

    Excellent food, nice restaurant if a little noisy but noting the small size that’s understandable. Highly recommend would def visit again

    I recommend Aloette to everyone that comes to visit me in Toronto, the burger is such a classic at the spot that you can't go wrong. One of the best parts of the restaurant is the inside ambiance and decor and getting to see and hear the chefs pop out orders. They always have some rotation on the menu which is great for when you revisit after a few months - but they keep the stables. The outdoor seating arrangement is just okay and the cocktail menu leaves much to be desired but otherwise an all around great spot and I highly recommend.

    I ordered a glass of Rose (@CAD18) but only 5oz per serving! The service is rough as perhaps rushing for table turnover, the ambient is noisy. Can’t agree it’s a Michelin starred restaurant!
