Food and service both amazing and they were able to modify many of the items to make them vegetarian. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Consistently awesome food and excellent service makes Dailo our most favourite restaurant.
Amazing as always!
Food was phenomenal! The first bite from the combination of shrimp and foie gras was exceptionally good. However, the service was extremely slow. We started dinner at around quarter to 8 pm and ended around quarter to 11 pm. I don’t know what happened to our table(we had bar seating) but we noticed that for others it wasn’t as slow since they had 2 seat turnovers during the course of our meal. I hope next time they can improve on servicing tables with equal and fair attention because their food will make you want to come for more.
This is was our second time here. Service and servers are amazing!!! very attentive and fun. The food is unbelievably good. We have gone for the tasting menu both times but I would recommend anything from the menu. Both times I tried one of their cocktails and did not disappoint. Creative, delicious, fun atmosphere. Really good for almost any occasion, birthday, anniversary or just an amazing night out. Definitely try it, you won't be disappointed.
We heard about Dailo because a colleague provided us with a giftcard - he searched it online and saw that it had great ratings. We were celebrating our 9th anniversary.
Our table was too close to another couple's table. It was very distracting for me to speak to my partner across the table from me. They were talking moderately but sometimes used swear words. I was not expecting to eat dinner and listen to other people use swear words to express or exaggerate. Suggestion is to move the two duo tables further apart from one another.
The food was very interesting, on the pricier side but that is a given! We ordered two Chef's Pick. The taste was a bit more on the sweeter side than we would have liked it to be. I enjoyed foods I had never tried such as fried watermelon or squid taco. Overall, I'd say the ingredients were authentic Chinese (e.g. jellyfish, pork shreds, sesame) and the style is more French or Western.
The staff was great. Each item came out explained. It was a great experience and would recommend to those who are looking to impress with a Chef's Pick experience.
Absolutely delicious! The flavors were all so tantalizing, you left them to linger on the tongue. We did the chef choice and glad we did. I would go back and highly recommend!
Excellent food and service bring us back repeatedly.
Man! The food was so amazing!
The deep fried watermelon...omg!
Can’t wait to go back!
Everything was tasty and well- balanced flavours, attentive service and well- informed servers who point you in the right direction when you're not sure what choices to make from the menu.
We had reservations for 2 people at 9:00, and probably finished up at about 11:00. Our selection for dinner was the tasting menu because that is what friends had recommended, and we were happy to be surprised and avoid any decision making. We let the server know that one of is a pescatarian who also eats chicken, and they accommodated us accordingly. The food was fantastic and the service attentive. Some very creative dishes that were well coordinated and timed. A great meal!
Amazing restaurant with great food & drinkers. Our server was very friendly, and his service was beyond great! Would recommend getting the chefs special. We were able to try food off the menu. It is a little pricy, the amount of food and the overall quality was amazing! Drinks (especially) the cocktails were incredible. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic food and reliable variety.
Outstanding experience. The food, the ambience, the service was pure perfection. I have not been this impressed by a restaurant in a very long time. Can’t wait to have another opportunity to go back. It’s not cheap, but 100% worth it.
Amazing food amazing service!
Exceptional food with exceptional service. My server at the board was over empathetic and did unbelievable quiet couttrsies. Will go again.
Chef’s table was delicious !
Can’t wait to go back
I took my fiancée to Dailo for her birthday and it was one of the best dining experiences we've experienced in Toronto. Our server Shannon went above and beyond to make this an enjoyable experience.
We ordered the tasting menu, where the chef picks out various curated courses. If you want a really exciting experience, this is the way to go. Chef Denison curated an amazing meal for us and everything was delicious. He went above and beyond after hearing it was my partner's birthday.
It's not a cheap dinner, especially when drinking, but it was absolutely worth every penny. This might be my new favourite place in the city. I can't wait to go back.
Huge thank you to Shannon and Chef Denison who went out of their way to give my partner a memorable birthday dinner.
amazing tasting menu and incredible service, definitely will go back
Was great food but not nearly enough for the tab
We had chef special and it was meagre portions at that price point. Never had such a small amount.
Everything was good: food, vibe, design and service but the bill comes in we were like whaaaat?
Did they forget something??
Their margins must be v good.
the restaurant is one of the top places in Toronto. Always a pleasureable dining experience for family and clients
Very creative dishes in a minimalist serving. Quality over quantity is the order of the day and the flavors are exceptional. The pork hocks are to die for.
We both chose the “chef’s choice” and we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious. The service of each course was timed perfectly and it was more than enough food.
Our first experience at the restaurant. Heard so much about the fine food and service. Reviews always the best!
We were not disappointed and very very impressed. We have dined at many restaurants across North America. DaiLo is one the best dining experiences we have enjoyed!! Amazing tasting menu and excellent service. Each and every dish was exceptional. The trout fantastic!!
Special thanks to the young lady who assisted us throughout the evening!!
Impressed! Our entire party was blown away by the experience. We are all still talking about it. Highly recommended if you have not yet had the chance to try it.
Amazing food and the service is above and beyond outstanding!
Great place. The food is not traditional Chinese... as many reviewers have mentioned, but it's very good. We had the tasting menu and it was excellent!
The chefs choice menu was a great introduction to this chef. jicama tacos with octopus and pork belly was delicious. The aloe vera finishing sorbet with ginger was inspired and quite refreshing. grandmothers dumplings and the potato dumplings were excellent. We loved the spiciness of the carpaccio dish.
Overpriced for what is it it is… Menu is very small. Nice ambience. Appeared a little overly fussy in terms of presentation
Food and waiters are amazing ..hostesses ruin the experience, absolutely terrible!
I went there for my anniversary and did the prix fixe menu and for the amount of food we got, the service and overall and experience I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
This is my favourite restaurant. HIGHLY recommend the chef selection. Peter was our server and he was so nice and knowledgeable. Food is always amazing.
I always feel away from home (Toronto), maybe in Shanghai in the 20s, in a different time zone, and the culinary experience is always fabulous! What a trip right here at home!
Great dining experience. Our party of six was served by Marla who was absolutely excellent in every way. We ordered the taster menu which at $68/person is about right for 10 courses of wonderfully diverse food. Great ambience and an extensive cocktail menu as well!
We arrived at the restaurant at 10pm (with no reservation) and there were empty tables. We were told they could not accommodate us (we assumed it was due to the late hour) however, after we left the restaurant we used open table to find an available table near me and surprisingly we able to book after all.
The food was excellent, drinks were excellent and our service was excellent (4*s given for being turned away in person while still able to book a table). Would highly recommend.
Second time here, this time late on a Saturday night, despite the suburban crowd -- this place knocked it out of the park with friendly and attentive service, an adventurous cocktail list, great fusion food and decor providing a suitable backdrop for the evening.
Main course was delicious. Appetizers didn’t wow us, luckily plate was small or we wouldn’t have finished the food.
Beautiful restaurant with a cozy feel. Delicious tasting menu. I enjoyed each course and was full by the end of the meal. Both presentation, taste and variety was amazing. I was seated in high-top seating at the back of the restaurant (because I made a very late reservation), but I liked the location. Service was excellent and attentive and the servers explained all the dishes. Great experience!
We ordered the chef’s choice and it was a meal for the history books. Beyond our expectations. So many notable flavor combos: octopus taco with jicama shell, a sushi cake of beef tartar, and a dessert of sake aloe sorbet with ginger. Amazing!!!
