A wonderful evening, four of us, yet again. Barry looked after us for the third time this year, so far, and as usual was able to point us in the right direction on wine choice and excellent and very helpful advice on menu choices. Great service, unobtrusive but always keeping a look out for when he is needed. The steak tartare is excellent as are all the other starters but if you want a tip, try the steak tartare. I asked for it with a little extra spice and that's how it arrived, exactly as requested. The Veal was superb and the Lobster Ravioli excellent too. Great table, the one we requested when we booked. Carl and Sarah, the owners very much in evidence, keeping a general eye on things and helping out when needed. Whilst we spend some of the year in the UK, when we are in Toronto we always make time for at least one, sometimes two visits to Sorrel each trip.

At the Ace in Toronto, you can enjoy a variety of menu items that are gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian. One very popular offering is the house-made charcuterie with homemade pickles and warm crostini. A daily soup is also on offer, with ingredients chosen by the chef based on what is fresh and available. A popular offering at The Ace is the oysters on the half-shell with horseradish and lemon. You might also consider the turkey burger with hand cut fries. Whatever you choose at The Ace, you can be assured that it is made with the utmost attention to detail and only the freshest ingredients.

I recently dined at The Met and was delighted at the fast, friendly service. The staff was so kind and welcoming, they gave informative feedback about menu options and were eager to help us make our decisions. We were sat next to a large window that overlooked a gorgeous patio - perfect for our rainy day lunch. The food was delicious! We had a lamb burger which was cooked perfectly- not over done. We also had the butter chicken which was fresh and provided a satisfying portion. The value is unmatched in the GTA The recommended wine paired perfectly with the meal options. This dinning experience was very enjoyable and the students seem more than comfortable in what seemed a supportive and inclusive learning environment. We cannot wait for the fall semester so we can visit again! Thank you all!
