    Second time at Grey Gardens and we sat at the bar for my friend’s birthday. Loved the music, interesting, healthy and flavourful food, excellent service, diversity in the kitchen staff, and ambience. It is a special place. My single wish (for all restaurants/bars) is that a little ledge could be installed under the bar for feet to rest so legs dont fall asleep.

    What a beautiful evening with delicious food and wine! Great recommendations from our server for food orders and wine. We were a bunch of girls and chatted a lot, our server gave us space and time to choose our orders, really exceptional. The food is unique yet comforting, will definitely be back!

    Grey Gardens is a jewel-box-amongst the cacophony and homeliness of Kensington Market. The cuisine is precious and thoughtful- vegetable dishes and crudo divine. This visit we indulged in a show-stopping bone-in pork chop dressed with a smokey pea jus. Staff are attentive but not cloying and cocktails balanced with many non-alcoholic options. Candle-heavy lighting transports everyone’s faces to ten years prior. Conversation is easily maintained amongst Lou Reed and David Bowie. Easily my favourite restaurant in Toronto. I struggle to restrain myself from visiting too often for fear of permanently elevating my dining standards to the point of no return.

    Birthday dinner with family. Our schedule demanded an early reservation so kind of had the “seniors blue plate special” vibe when we arrived but the staff are all awesome and made us feel great. Loved the decor, we had a perfect corner “booth” and view of open kitchen. First off, order the bread and butter. Just do it, keto be damned. Come prepared to review and choose from a great wine list. Had a 2018 Percarlo that got better and better as we ate. Mains were solid - pasta with duck bolognese was delicious, pork chop huge portion and fantastic. We will be back. Easy parking close by in GreenP.

    I can’t rave enough about this gem of a place I keep finding my way back to. Unassuming, cozy, cool (because of that) and exquisite food. I can always look forward to an interesting and decadent interpretation of a vegetable. This time it was hen of the woods mushroom. So good. Fish dip and chip is a signature staple. The crudos are the best. They make a mean martini and the wine list is perfection. Friendliest staff. Will return always.

    We split 3 dishes and 2 desserts. First, salad with green tomato and Stracciatella was a bit too acidic, wish I had ordered some bread to accompany. Second, tagliatelle - really yummy pockets of delicious. Last, fish with some type of curry inspired sauce...SO good. Dessert: one classic chocolate cake, with mousse and early grey ice cream, the other weird tasting and texture, too avant garde for me. Chocolate was delicious! I was still hungry at the end of the meal, but very satisfied. Would have not split the fish in retrospect. :) We had a bottle of their cheapest white ($~50) and it was great with everything we ate.

    Amazing meal with great service! I can see why they are Michelin recommended but after the meal we had, I hope they receive a star next time. Food was deliciously prepared and plated. We were sitting at the food bar and saw them preparing the mushroom & barley dish so we added that on to our meal and it did not disappoint! Flavours & textures in all of our dishes were well planned. Highly, highly recommend!

    What a lovely night out! Grey Gardens was the best high end dining experience we've had in a year, at least. Excellent food, with several standout dishes -- I'm thinking here of the spicy beef tartare, green tomato salad, agnolloti and a delicious, nostalgic parfait dessert -- and the service was warm and attentive. Given the reputation for hip scenester clientele and a loud 70s soundtrack of Isley Brothers tunes, we expected to be a somewhat unusual or unwelcome presence -- an 18th pre-birthday party with two teenagers and a tween, and one of the adults a non-drinker. But they brought out a quiet celebratory dessert for the birthday girl, the mocktails were great and the lone drinker enjoyed her glass of wine very much. Bravo!

    Don’t be early, there is no where to wait. One bathroom. Hmmm. The wine list is extensive and very eclectic and holds crazy potential. Our problem was, whom ever assembled this jewel was no where to be found. Two different staff members offered advice that was less than satisfactory. The first and last suggestion we took turned out to be orange. The server should have known that. We tried one more time and gave up asking for insights about the wine list. We did have two more splendid wines. (Of our own choosing.) Now the food. Delicious. Sublime. The pasta was delicate and perfectly cooked. Order two of the smoked fish dip. Top five best smoked pork chop. We know enough about wine to take care of ourselves but I wonder about what a proper sommelier would have suggested and elevated the food. Don’t get me wrong, I’m going back. They could take a lesson from Wynona. Very eclectic wine list and understood by the staff. It’s a missed opportunity for GGs with the knowledge of their wine list.
