The Good Son Restaurant - Queen West
Our Wood-Fire Pizzas are a cross between Roma and Neapolitan styles; cooked in a wood-burning M.A.M pizza oven imported from Italy. It yields a crust that is thin but sturdy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavour imparted on the food is exceptional and unique.
Our cocktails are equally thought out as our food. Our bartenders serve up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.
The meal took a long time to arrive, we were all served at the same time but my husband's food was cold.
The service at the beginning of our meal was good but after dinner was served our server had a lot of tables to attend to so we did not end up ordering dessert, it got too late.
Has always been good. Water glasses were always topped up before being asked. Very attentive.
Thank you for your positive feedback, Justin! We hope you come back to visit us again!
We had a lovely experience at the good son. From the moment we walked through the doors we felt so very welcomed. Thank you for your hospitality paired with great food and vino
Thank you so much for this glowing review! We're thrilled that you had a lovely experience with us! We hope to see you back soon :)
It was our first time + we we’re celebrating our anniversary + we were blown away by the entire dining experience! Everything was spot-on. Amazing energy in the dining room, perfect decor, the food was to die for + the service was impeccable without being stuffy. 10/10. We’ll be back for oysters + wine at the bar this winter for sure!
Thank you so much for this glowing review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us! We can't wait to have to come back soon!
Gorgeous venue. Delightful staff. My friend and I checked Instagram for food photos before ordering. I saw so many of the burger, I had to try it. The hype is real. The French fries were so good, my friend stole the whole box before our server could take my plate! Great cocktails and draught beer selection. Get there before 6pm for happy hour!
Thank you so much Lisa for this glowing review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your dining experience and hope to see you back soon!
I have been to The Good Son several times as I just live down the street. Every time service and food is amazing. Unfortunately, this last visit fell short and I was shocked.
It was incredibly busy as it seemed there were two different large groups. Waited what seemed to be a very long time for our starter and about an hour after ordering our mains we had to prompt our server for the bill because we had somewhere to be. I genuinely thought 1.5 hours was ample time to dine. I was wrong.
I have to say our server was incredible. She was attentive and communicative with the delay on our food. When our pizzas arrived they were terrible. Clearly a rushed job. Picked up my first slice and literally all the toppings fell off. The pizza the server recommended for my friend was bland and lacking in toppings.
Overall, it was just a disappointing experience based upon previous visits. Unfortunately, I am disappointed to say I will not be returning.
Only disappointment was seasonal tart. It could have been used as a weapon. Burger and pasta were excellent. Thanks
Thank you for your feedback! We really appreciate it. We hope you'll come back to dine with us again!
We dined at The Good Son Queen West on Saturday evening and had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent - delicious and well-prepared. The service team was unpretentious, friendly and knowledgable. I can't wait to go back soon.
PS. save room for dessert and try the budino .... t's been 3 days and I'm still thinking about it.
Thank you so much for this glowing review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us. We can't wait to see you back soon!
Lots of variety on the menu, excellent specials, good portions, friendly/knowledgable service. Only complaint was that our (cold) apps took quite a long time to arrive. But they were delicious so who cares, tbh.
Thank you so much for your feedback, we really appreciate it! We hope you'll come back soon to dine with us again!
Great food, great drink, great service. The wood burning oven fills the restaurant with a pleasant fragrance; the menu is innovative. Highly recommend the Jerk Shrimp appetizer. Steak was PEI, maybe best cut I’ve ever had.
Hi Jason! Thank you so much for your positive feedback, we really appreciate it. We hope you'll come back soon!
Great place for drinks, food and vibe
Thank you for your positive feedback! We hope to see you back soon!
Our group of 5, dined at The Good Son for dinner on a Saturday night. We were so impressed! The service was amazing, ambiance and decor was on point and the food and drinks were incredible. Loved the custom cocktails! We started with the Brussel sprouts appetizer, fries and warm olives. The Brussel sprouts were so good we got a second order, and fries were perfectly crispy and flavourful. I got the Bulgogi short rib dish which was artistically made and delectable. My friends got the Fish of the Day & Mushroom Pappardelle. Both got rave reviews. Will definitely be returning. It was an awesome evening!
Thank you so much for this glowing review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us and we can't wait to have you back!
Way too loud - had to yell at my table mates. Won’t go there again.
Had a great evening! Would highly recommend!
Thank you for your recommendation! We hope you'll come back to dine with us again!
Incredible food on Queen West. Everything from the shared plates, to the mains and our after dinner cocktails was on point! Service was friendly and knowledgeable but I had to take a star off for efficiency.
Thank you so much for your glowing feedback! We really appreciate it and hope you'll come back to dine with us again soon.
Great atmosphere, cocktails and service. Antipasto could use a refresh.
We came here for my boyfriend's birthday and we were both impressed with the level of service and attention to detail. Food and cocktails were fantastic! They made the best Negroni I've ever had. Highly recommend it!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us this glowing review, Ashley! We can't wait to have to dine with us again, soon!
We came to the Good Son the night after our wedding. It was the perfect venue, the perfect meal, to end our perfect weekend. Service was outstanding (they were accommodating to our table change request, and overall just incredibly sweet and professional), the food was delicious (Shared the burrata, I had the ceviche and tartare, my husband had the steak), and the venue is gorgeous. We can't wait to come back.
Thank you for your glowing review! We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your evening with us! We can't wait to have you dine with us again soon.
As always, an amazing experience at The Good Son. Our server Alex is outstanding! You can never go wrong with the jerk shrimp and brussle sprouts!
Thank you so much for your positive feedback! We will be sure to let Alex know. We hope to see you again very soon!
Food took way too long as a kitchen staff apparently made an error. It was unreasonable to be waiting over 40 minutes for standard brunch menu items after appetizers.
My husband and I went for a date night. I love the decor and service is really good. I just found the menu a bit limited for us, but food tastes great.
Good for a casual date night.
Hi Lidi! Thank you for your feedback, we hope you'll come back soon to dine with us again!
This is a great place to go when you want to enjoy a casual evening in a cool place with great friends. The atmosphere is happy but not too loud. The décor is fun and the booths comfy.
The open kitchen and pizza oven are neat to watch and the food comes out quickly and is delicious. They have good deals on different days such as $10 pizzas and 1/2 price bottles of wine.
A great value for excellent food and friendly and professional staff.
Thank you so much for your review, Anna! We work really hard to offer the best dining experience and are so happy to see it reflected on your last visit. We hope to see you again very soon!
Best pizza I’ve ever had, hands down. Service was great too
Thank you Chris! We're so happy to hear you loved our wood oven pizzas! We hope you'll come back to dine with us again soon.
The salmon special was amazing! Really enjoyed it
Thank you so much! We really appreciate your glowing review. We can’t wait to have you visit again.
Great food and service but restaurant was way too hot during dinner on Friday night. Need better ventilation or cooling system. All guests at our table were sweating buckets , it got very uncomfortable.
Food was running late so the chef made us an extra pizza, it was delicious!
Thank you for your review! We hope you'll come back soon to dine with us again!
Too expensive for what you get. $9 small fries! Server was not helpful with menu questions
Amazing as always, its my favorite restaurant in the city!
Thank you so much, Coral! We really appreciate your glowing review. We can’t wait to have you visit again.
Great little date spot. Food is excellent with a chill vibe.
Thank you for the positive feedback, Kyle! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your dining experience and hope to see you again soon!
Really great spot, comfortable seating and delicious food and drinks. The service is friendly and attentive without being too much.
Thank you for the glowing review Erin! We really appreciate it and hope you'll come back soon to dine with us!
What a lovely space. The food was delicious. The service exceptional. And 1/2 price wine before 6pm was also sweet.
Did not enjoy this place at all. Meat was undercooked and bland. Service was not the best. Overall not a place I’d return.
Great! Everything was very good
Thank you for the review! We hope you'll come back to dine with us!
A great restaurant on Queen St W. great food, great service and a great location
Thank you for this glowing review, Dave! We hope you'll come back soon to dine with us again!
Food and service very good
Thank you for your review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us and hope you'll dine with us again!
Best fries I have ever had. Food was very tasty. Sauces and dressings were excellent.
I was in Toronto for Caribana and decided to go to this restaurant based off of a recommendation from someone I follow on Instagram. However, I was slightly disappointed because my French toast entree which I was really happy to try based on photos from instagram came back burnt twice! Good thing they removed it from the bill. The chicken and waffles was excellent and as pictured. My boyfriend asked for eggs over hard and they were not done right, he had to send his dish back I forgot what it was called but it seemed like a Mexican dish, he also felt it was lackluster. The ambiance was grim and dark for a brunch spot, the decor was also very prehistoric. I will not return.
Always enjoy the food here without question.
It’s upsetting to make a reservation and receive a table that can barely fit your meal on it. We also waited to be seated with a reservation while the hostess was spending more than 10 minutes with a couple who did not have a reservation and they ultimately ended up leaving. I thought if she quickly could ask if we had a reservation we would be taken care of. Not the biggest nuisance but it was a bit annoying. The restaurant is really loud and difficult to have a conversation in but I like the overall feel otherwise.
Service was really poor unfortunately. It took almost 15 minutes to be greeted by our server, drinks came another 20 minutes later and it was a cycle of ordering things and getting them late. Our appetizers we had asked to be separate From our meal came together and as mentioned there wasn’t any room on the table for it. These small things really impact the overall experience. I will return because the food is great but I wish these other items could be addressed.
THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT! WE WILL BE BACK!
Wonderful place with great cocktails and delicious food. The ambience is unique and quite beautiful. You cant go wrong here.
Thank you for the lovely review! We're so happy you enjoyed your dining experience and hope you'll come back soon!
