As always the food was delicious with layers of interesting flavours. The staff is friendly and attentive. We love it here. Haven’t ever had a meal or experience at GG that wasn’t outstanding.

Food is absolutely delicious, full of flavours. We just regret we had to sit on the sidewalk almost in the next door restaurant's area, too close to the street, traffic and pot smokers.

Very terrible social distancing for all the tables, you’re pretty much back to back with others around you or people on the sidewalk. The current condensed menu is very bare compared to pre-quarantine. Tried almost every item on the menu, with majority of them being disappointing.

Lovely vibe and service. The food was mostly great but a slight bit over ambitious. The tartar was a slight bit over dressed and the beef tongue was overpowered by the sauce. Everything else was great.

The food was delicious! We ordered most things off of the menu to share (menu changes always which I love) and it was the perfect amount of food. Not too heavy and amazing tastes! The staff is very welcoming and knowledgable about drinks and food which is awesome! Would have loved for it to not be raining as we were on the patio but so happy that GG provided a tent to keep everyone covered.

There are not enough words for me to describe the experience at Grey Gardens. The food, the environment, the staff and the service is absolutely phenomenal. In the times that we live in now, they have provided a safe environment for not only the customer but those working there.

Everything about this restaurant was amazing. The service was fantastic. The food was the best we have had since the pandemic and lived up to what we remembered. Drinks were awesome. Only downside is the area and the people walking around out side the restaurant screaming and blasting music. All around I would highly recommend!

The menu was limited which was not communicated at all: everything we had was delicious but it would have been nice to know that were only cold dishes available beforehand. I get covid poses a lot of challenges for restaurants but I’ve been to others that were able to share their limited menus so we can make an informed decision on where to dine. Again - the food was delicious but just more transparency would be appreciated!

Everything about Grey Gardens was amazing. From the staff to the wine to the food, everything was exceptional. They were amazing at accommodating allergies (celiac and peanut/all nuts). The waitstaff went out of their way to make my birthday very special. Highly recommend.

Disappointed with the food at Grey Gardens. Albacore tuna, beef carpaccio and cod were prepared well but nothing special in terms of the flavour. Sunchokes dish really stood out and it was the best dish of the night. My desert (panna cotta) was terrible, it was salty and ingredients didn’t work together, my friend had a donut and seemed to be more satisfied. Even oysters were served without mignonette or lemon but with 2 sauces, flavourless green concoction and a boring spicy one. The service was attentive, but not confident, i.e. servers mumble what the dish is. It is a cute place but not to our liking for a repeat visit.

My girlfriend and I had dinner on a Wednesday night to celebrate her new job. Its unassuming store front belies a cozy, open aesthetic, and I was blown away by the menu offerings. Everything that we had was of the highest execution; the food is rich and creative, the wine offerings are excellent value, and the staff are quality. We will be talking about our meal for a long time.

First off, everything we ordered was over-seasoned. We had pork and truffle terrine, which was RIDICULOUSLY salty (let alone to start the meal) followed by a salty maiitake mushroom salad with duck egg and pecorino (which actually would’ve been amazing without so much salt). My girlfriend couldn’t eat much of the dishes so I had to force myself to eat most of them to not embarrass ourselves or the chefs (which we are too). But really, we should’ve said something...we then had SALT COD with sunchokes (which would’ve been good by its own but i.e. oversalty starters etc.) to finish....out of all things, they gave you f the chicken sausage from our 4 choices....just a brick rolling around in cement...step it up !!!!!!! I would’ve spent twice as much money if half of it wasn’t going into salt.

This place is spectacular!

From the moment I called to adjust a reservation Meg, who answered the call, was kind and helpful and able to switch us to an earlier seating at the communal table. My friends and I were pumped to get in, since we booked this reservation late.

The day of our dinner, Meg texts to confirm our res—confirmed!

The res was for four. Two were running late. Myself and one (the bday girl we celebrated) arrived on time, were greeted so warmly and shown to our table—a standard table, not the communal one. I looked at the young lady seating us and asked if she was Meg. It was her! I thanked her for adjusting our res, and then adjusting our seating to a standard one. She was so kind about all of it and out the gate set the tone for our night.

The place is beautiful—chic, warm and welcoming. And the playlist was soooo good! Quiet enough to allow conversation, yet loud enough to be heard and continuously add to our night with awesome songs!

The staff was amazing!! Sweet, helpful, fun! Our server Kayla was awesome!! She was so nice, knew her cocktails, gave us the space we needed to catch up, yet left us feeling so incredibly tended to! She had great suggestions on all things—food & drink—and allowed us to have a fabulous, unrushed dinner.

The food, the food, the food...DELISH! Every single thing we had was amazing! Perfectly seasoned, cooked, presented...just yum! And coursed out beautifully! We had the chips & dip, killer bread & butter, beef carpaccio (one of THE best I’ve had) yummy beats dish and the labneh salad. Two noodles, which were off the hook—the ravioli and the cavatelli!! The scallop...I don’t even like scallops but had to try because the food was so good, and these were equally delicious! We ended the dinner with coffee, the chocolate torte and two rounds of the donut. AHmazing meal!!!

I cannot wait to come back to TO and eat here again. Run, don’t walk for an overall lovely night out!

The rutabaga and COD dishes were quite good. Different flavours than usual. We also had the donut. This was more than enough food for 2 females. I found the portions too big for such strong flavours. I like big flavourful food but these combinations really stick with you. The cod was okay and my favourite was the rutabaga. Service was outstanding and unpretentious. Prices a bit too high. Including the $12 donut.
