Food is just exceptional - every dish gave me surprise, from bread to dessert. Amazing experience, one of the best italian, if not fine dining, restaurant in the entire GTA. My new favorite.

Went on a Tuesday Evening. There were two other occupied tables. Initial server was new and had limited grasp of English however he was quickly replaced by an eloquent gentleman who was definitely a pro. We were seated in a poorly constructed banquette with very uncomfortable seats made out of shiny silver vinyl.
It is a beautiful building but the Lighting was poor.
I’ve been to several Michelin Starred Restaurants in the past. I suspect this guy earned one some time ago, but maintaining that Standard is a very big task.
I don’t think the judges would award him one now.
Don’t get me wrong, the food was good....but not worth a star. He definitely deserves full marks for plating presentation. But falls a little short in substance. The sommelier did a very good job with the pairing. The pours were a little shy. I suspect he is under the gun to get twenty glasses out of the bottle.
Dinner for two (one contemporary and one traditional) , one glass of CDR and one wine pairing with a tip was almost 600.
For the value....Ok... but not great.

Don Alfonso is more than a restaurant - it is a food experience. Every dish is well thought out with the finest ingredients and cooked to perfection. The service and presentation is also top notch. I have eaten at many of the finest Michelin Star restaurants in Manhattan, and Don Alfonso is in that same tier.

We came from Montreal to dine here after hearing such great things. From the moment we arrived we were exceptionally well taken care of by the Maître di. Our server and sommelier were knowledgeable and excellent at suggesting the items we might enjoy. We started with the duck breast and Lobster appetizers. Both amazing!!! For our main we both had the Bison which was better then any filet we have ever had. The presentation and the perfection of the flavours and cuisson of every item was really what 5 stars are meant to represent. On a final note don’t skip the bread with the nuts and truffle butter. Wow! To end our perfect dinner we were given a tour of the kitchen and a chance to meet the chef and staff preparing this perfect food as well a wonderful tour of the wine cellar which didn’t disappoint! Thank you to all of you who made our evening so special. We can’t wait to come back!

It was a birthday dinner and I was more inclined towards repeating Alo which has been by far my best dining experience both with their ala-carte and the tasting menu, but, my wife so desperately wanted to try Don Alfonso out. Hence, as is the case with most married men, we came to Don Alfonso and I have to say they didn’t disappoint at all, both, in terms of the food & in terms of the impeccable service provided.
What makes this place standout apart from their exceptionally good food, is the attention given to small details - starting from the way the menu is presented to the various plating techniques, speaks volumes. And, their complimentary tour of the kitchen & the wine cellars needs a mention definitely.
Never been offered a tour of a restaurant before, and it certainly was an extremely insightful experience to know about various techniques of Italian cooking, how they make their breads, the collection of wines as per regions and finally, to my surprise, I was informed “Lebanese Wine is a must try if you can get your hands on any”.
Definitely a nice end to the day.

We booked for Valentines, set menu two choices. Overall food was good and ambience was nice. Service was biggest disappointment... pretentious, slow, inattentive, disorganized... they dropped canapés twice off our plates to the floor and ignored offering to replace the items, despite our concerns. Need to seriously replace waiters and service staff, they all constantly whisper and engage in rude customer commenting.

This was my first fine dining experience and it didn't disappoint! The servers were very attentive. The food was delicious and the environment was great. The only thing I can really pick on was the noise level, I would have liked it a tad bit more quiet. All in all though it was and amazing date night.

The service was horrible. Our waiter literally took away a plate while my husband was still eating. Our waiter was pushy and aggressive during the entire service.

Our waiter was so annoyed that we took a while to order and we complained about the quality of the food that he practically flung the cutlery onto the table.

Our food was mediocre at best. We sent back two meals because they lacked flavour and were cold. I left this restaurant and went home and ordered pizza!! It was that horrible!!!

I went for a couple's dinner as a birthday celebration. We loved everything - the friendliness, ambiance, staff experience and expertise, food, wine selection, and value for money. We were also given special desserts and a small gift to celebrate the birthday. We found that the experience was above and beyond expectations and we both fully recommend the restaurant!

Yes but your reservation system needs to improve. I thought your main restaurant was called 1890 and when I arrived they led me to a table above, close the bar which I found unacceptable. Fortunately, they found me a table in the main dining are.

Not sure I would return. We were there on a Wednesday so I guess we should expect a smaller crowd. Front bar was closed so we were shuttled upstairs alongside a private group for a drink.
Prices were crazy, even for Toronto and the food was fancy but not great.

Why is it so difficult for Toronto to produce meaningful food. In a town where foodies climb on every possible platform to virtue-signal about their high food principles, in an industry where all the mid-range, mid-sized restaurants are failing one after the other because of high commercial rents and citizens unwillingness to pay more for – let alone recognize good food, how is it that when you are willing to pay absurdly high prices, in a restaurant that claims Michelin talent, we are nothing but disappointed to the point of Monty Pythonesque humour. Oh sure there's obvious effort: decor by Ivanna Trump, interesting plates although one looked uncannily like female genitalia. A terribly loud room with impossible acoustics, wait staff who cannot answer basic questions about the dishes because it’s clearly not what they’re used to eating . A confusing bread selection which otherwise shows promise is assaulted with your choice of a harsh spicy Tuscan extra virgin oil or a black garlic butter which, and I didn’t know this was possible, cancels all the deliciousness of both black garlic and cultured butter. How can you mess with a perfect brioche? By not serving it with you know, boring plain butter and by putting nuts and blue cheese in there, yes, blue cheese, at a stage in your meal when your palate should be respected and treated gingerly. A sous-vide duck breast with – wait for it – a Balsamic reduction! Oh my, now that’s pushing the envelope. The only reason to eat duck is all about the skin, crisped and rendered, which instead they served , you guessed it, pale, gloppy, un-rendered. A lovely bison tenderloin, perfectly cooked lays in a Welly-style wrap which is unrecognizable but eerily reminiscent of a Pogo stick, aptly paired with a dollop of cheap Tabasco ketchup and another of green mustard. A black cod and truffle dish that prompted my eloquent partner to exclaim “smells like when you open the dishwasher mid-cycle”

As this was touted as a Michelen restaurant our expectations were quite high, especially for the price point of the tasting menu.

The presentation, cocktails and attention to customer service all exceeded our expectations however there were areas in which the restaurant fell short.

The bathroom was very untamed, with toilet paper on the ground, a soap dispenser that did not work and was empty.

The restaurant acoustics are very loud, and our waitress was very soft spoken which made it challenging to hear each courses explanation.

On one occurance we asked a support staff to tell us what a drink was at our neighbouring table, and he didn't know and just walked away...instead of getting our waitress to assist with our inquiry.

One of our guests also had a food allergy (which was communicated in advance with our reservation), and instead of swapping out the menu item in advance of our arrival, it took our waitress four times coming back and forth to our table to offer alternatives to the one course that needed replacement.

Lastly the food. We found some courses to be better than others. The pasta and the bison were both excellent, however the canapes and eel were a little less desired.

We had some good experiences and some poor ones. Food is like art, very subjective however our recommendation would be to go a la carte in the lounge instead of the tasting menu, order some lovely cocktails and eat the pasta!

Lovely restaurant, okay atmosphere but strangely planned. They make too much of a fuss about their food - I've enjoyed a few Michelin rated restaurants, this is not one and it would have been more enjoyable with the hype turned down a bit.

Our server interfered with our dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant was not busy and our server was bored, so we became his entertainment. I do not go to restaurants to make friends with any server, but would rather enjoy the time with my guests.

Our biggest disappointment was the menu options. I especially did not like was that only the tasting menu was presented to us. Our preference would have been to order al a carte menu. I later became aware that we had an option to order al a carter that our server did not make us aware of . One does not know what they do not know.

Would I go back there? Probably not.
