The food was wonderful and we would go back for that alone. The waitperson was inexperienced (we think) and was not particularly knowledgeable. She was attentive but not at the professional level I would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

Good service, fabulous menu. I had difficulty in deciding what to have - because I wanted to try everything. The sweet softspoken server told me what she thinks most people like and what she herself really likes. I had the pork, it was delicious, tender pork with a very tasty mushroom madiera sauce. It was quite a heavy dish and I would have liked a few crisp vegetables for texture instead of the roasted vegetables but it was delicious. My guest had the pancetta pizza - it was absolutely loaded with pancetta and arugula. I love it when a pizza has lots of the toppings it promises. It was an early dinner so I was expecting it be quite but when we left at 7pm there was only one other table there. Only three beer options but fabulous wine list.

I would go back.

I reserved a table here for a dinner party with my friends to celebrate a new job. The food was delicious (half of us had the risotto of the day with mushrooms), great cocktails, and the service was wonderful. We all enjoyed our dishes and had a lovely time.

The ambiance and decor are beautiful. Very rustic chic. The staff is incredibly kind. The downside is the various pasta dishes we ordered (we were a large group) was kind of disappointing considering the ambiance and staff were so incredible. I am willing to try it one more time because everything else was great, it would be sad to think it wasn't an off night.


Thank you for hosting us.

We had a group of 6 people for dinner on a Friday night. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our hostess was excellent. There were a few people with food allergies/aversions and the chef did his best to accommodate us. I would definitely go back.

Excellent eating experience! The food was exceptional, our server was extremely attentive to our needs and the prices were very reasonable. The owner was was visible throughout the evening and came over and checked in and chatted several time during the evening. One of my favourite Toronto restaurant.

We were a party of 6 Italians and really enjoyed the experience. The truffle ravioli was amazing and all homemade noodles. Enjoyed the appetizers especially the fennel salad and chicutterie board. The cannolis are amazing would definitely return and the value was amazing especially for King W. The owners was even kind enough o give us free shots after we were finished. Will return.

Excellent home made pastas: the braised beef in white wine cream sauce and the lamb ragu were sensational! Both the tuna tartar and calamari appetizers were delicious as well. Unfortunately, the service is extremely slow, it took nearly an hour from the time we ordered to get our food (and there were only 2 of us).

A group of us came for my birthday dinner and overall, Ovest was good. The food tasted great and the portions were worth the price. The only negative comment we have is that our server wasn’t the most attentive, which maybe it could have been because it was a Saturday night. But it shouldn’t have had to take so long to order drinks, then food, then be offered dessert and then have to flag down another sever to get our bills.

The service was very good but the food failed to live up to expectations. A pizza was my first choice but I was told they were all made with white cream sauce, a dietary restriction for me. The artichoke appetizer was large but lacked any flavor other than salt. The branzino was dry and served over watery potatoes.

Service is wonderful as is the owner John who makes his rounds ensuring all of the customers are acknowledged and enjoying themselves. A must try if in the King and Bathurst area of the city.

The service was superb. A few mature gentlemen working the room with ease, thoughtfulness and charm. Decent wine prices by the bottle. Despite it was very busy, it wasn't too loud and could talk without yelling.
