    The food was good, very authentic! The service was nice and it was nice to be able see the owner on the floor providing service and it was nice chatting with her. Best part is that they congratulated us on our new car in a very special way.

    We have been here a few times, this place is always great. Great service, great food, great ambience. Only small issue is there is always wait time even if you have a reservation. It is usually not bad, maybe 10 or 15 mins but otherwise the place is great. Highly recommended

    We've lived in the neighbourhood - 2 blocks away - for a year and a half and finally, after walking by it endless times, decided to try Zezafoun. OMG why did we wait so long?!?!?! What an adorable gem of a restaurant. Note perfect in every way. This is what a neighbourhood restaurant is supposed to be - great food, cozy ambiance, amazing service. Loved it!

    The food is authentic and tasty. What I like about it is that it is not pretentious, hence its excellence. Therefor the restaurant would appeal to people who have never tasted Syrian or Middle Eastern food. And Aleppo is known as.a Culinary centre. Bravo!

    Made a reservation and they put us in the middle of the room where servers continuously knocked into our arms. There was a table by the window free and they decided to put us in the most inconvenient spot. We were ignored and had to continue to grab their attention and we were in the middle of the restaurant. Food was dropped us with no explanation on what was what. Really not sure what exactly we ate but it was fine. Food itself I did enjoy. So if you only care about that, then, sure come by.

    This family-run gem is refreshingly authentic cuisine, with extensive an menu including unique cocktails, all served with charm. The wait staff are warmly welcoming: Best service we've had in Toronto in a long time (and we are picky/ discerning). The venue is quaint with a dash of ambiance with candles and Syrian music. But back to the food - all home-cooked... some with complex blends of flavour like the beef cooked in a rich cherries and spices sauce. I almost licked the plate clean. We'd probably stick with an assortment of the smaller appetizer/ shareable plates next time, instead of mains... just so we can try more things, even though the mains we're delicious. Highly recommend treating yourself to this special place. We will be back!
