Bistro
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.

    We had a lovely lunch. Excellent and attentive service. Recommend the salmon tartare, the wedge salad and the fois gras toast. Portions are too small though, literally one bite per person, and pricing is for two people. Think of it as a splurge going in, and you won't be disappointed!

    Great restaurant for date night. Appetizer portions were larger than the mains , but still great experience overall.

    Aloette never fails. A beautiful little gem with a small and exceptional menu. From the appetizers to the main courses, the flavours are so special and well curated. You must try something from each section: a tart cocktail, to a flavourful app, to a decadent main.

    Had a wonderful experience! They were a bit late getting our table ready but made up for it and more with some drinks while we waited, complimentary Prosecco as a thank you for our patience and exemplary customer service throughout the meal. Not to mention, the restaurant is beautiful and the food was absolutely incredible. Overall, super happy with our experience!
