    Food and its presentation were outstanding! The bison was one of the tenderest cuts of meat I have ever had!! Would go back just for that. Our server, Liam, was knowledgeable when asked for recommendations and provided excellent service from beginning to end! Tables were well spaced to allow for conversation but one table was exceptionally noisy which made it hard to hear, but when they left, all was good. I definitely need to go back to try other dishes.

    We had the $140 tasting menu and it was just enough food for us. The food was excellent. We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday boy was treated especially well with a special dessert and gift. Frank, our waiter, took good care of us, as did the rest of the staff. It was pricy but it was a memorable evening!

    The food is amazing, no doubt. Service could be better in timing and notifications. Notification meaning... We weren't told they don't do corkage so that's a bit of a bummer after bringing a $300 bottle of wine. The timing of drinks and food also missed the mark a bit, example we usually expect coffee and tea to come with dessert right away to help with the sweetness, but it took a while.

    My partner and I came to try the tasting menu on a Saturday evening and was very disappointed. The food sounded promising upon description and presentation, but severely lacked flavour or interest. Sauces were recycled or had very similar profiles for most courses, making each dish predictable while everything else simply just had no flavour. I can commend the different textures used, but overall it was pretty lacklustre, especially with its Michelin Star status. Unfortunately the table beside us had the same experience and even spoke to to the manager to give their thoughts. I cannot recommend DA1890 for the food, especially for this price point, but was very pleased with the staff and overall service throughout the night.

    Our waitress Marylue was simply a delight. Her smile was so welcoming, she really made us feel comfortable. The ambiance was really nice. Food was good, 2 dishes in particular stood out - the soft shell crab ravioli and the bison were out favourites. It was also my husbands birthday and they gave us a complimentary dessert and a wine bottle cork. Wonderful experience!

    Absolutely Incredible! Thank you Ashley for being such an amazing host and showing us an incredible night. It was my birthday and my husband took me to the restaurant as a treat. We went with the signature tasting menu costing $200 per person. The wine paring costs $120 and there is a variety of cocktails available for a wide variety of pricing. The duck was to die for and by far my favourite along with the selection of canapés. Amazing. The rest of the dishes are still by far the best food I’ve tasted just the ones mentioned are my favourite. If you go with the tasting menu then you don’t get to choose what you are brought as it is a set menu. However the $130 a la carte allowed you to choose 1 dish from a list of dishes from the three categories. Amazing. Totally worth every dollar spent. Let the valets know that you are going to the restaurant and they will charge you less than if you are staying at the hotel. Bring cash for parking or they will charge you tax. The restaurant even gave me a birthday gift in the form of a card and a cork as a souvenir. Amazing. Thank you so much for such an incredible night and service.

I highly recommend the chef’s tasting menu even if you’re unsure about an item - the chef knows exactly what he’s doing and it’s amazing to watch the brilliance unfold. Can’t wait to go back!

    The beef carpaccio was insanely good. I don't even like Beef Carpaccio, but we ordered it because my companion loves it. I could make an entire meal just out of a bowl of this dish. The ravioli dish was off the charts amazing. The flavours meld perfectly. The Wagu beef was probably the best piece of meat I've ever eaten. The Bisonet had so many flavours balancing the dish, it was a pleasure. Both meat dishes were cooked perfectly. Shout out to Raygun who was wonderful in service. The sommelier was expert and truly added to our evening with a perfect suggestion to complement the meal.

    I travelled from Ottawa 2 weeks in a row to eat at this restaurant. Once again the service and food was beyond words. Kelly, my waiter, was attentive and provided the best possible service. Kayden, our mixologist, created four or five amazing concoctions that were simply outstanding. I don’t normally drink but am elated to make an exception for Kayden. I have eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world (Le Bernadin, Jean Georges, Susur, Daniel, Per Se, etc) and this restaurant was just as good as those. Just try their signature tasting menu and you be transported back to authentic elevated Italian cuisine.

    I’ll start by expressing that I am not sure how this restaurant got a Michelin star. We have been to 2 other Michelin restaurants in toronto & Don Alfonso does not come close. First, our table wasn’t ready for us, even though we were 10 minutes into the grace period of arrival, so we were seated at the bar to wait. A server then came up behind me to offer to hang up my Chanel handbag, and grabbed it before I even answered! You just don’t go around grabbing people’s personal items. I had to ask for more breadsticks after the first course, because the portions were so small (we did the A La Carte option). The next 2 items I ordered came out cold (ravioli & wagyu). We had also got a wine pairing for each course & asked for them to focus the wines within Italy, to which we then got a South African & south of France wine.. when we reminded the sommelier of our request, he said he will do his best with the bottles that are already open. Not sure why it is a big deal to open wines to accommodate your guests. There was also fruit flies that we had to swat away from our wines and food the entire night. Our server was lovely though & the dessert was good, but does not make up for the disappointing experience.

    Outstanding food at every course. Everything was exquisite. Service was excellent and pacing was perfect. Beautiful ambiance and very friendly and welcoming staff. However, I have two criticisms. We were charged $9 each for still water. Given that we paid $200 each for the tasting menu and ordered several alcoholic drinks, I felt this seemed to be cheap on the restaurant's part. Secondly, the server told us that they could not split the bill in 2. I found this completely unacceptable at a Michelin star restaurant and gave 15% tip instead of 20% because of this. It is not difficult to split two equal bills in half. This should be something that any restaurant can do. Aside from these two criticisms, I would still say this is the best restaurant in Toronto without question.
