The service was excellent. Staff so friendly and provided great recommendations. A lot of sharing plates so we got try many menu items. All the dishes were well presented and flavorful.

The food was less interesting than we were expecting. The chicken baos were the standout among the dishes we ordered. The Siu Mai dumplings were pretty bland and could have used some sort of doing sauce. I know those dumplings aren't exactly flavour explosions but these sounded much more interesting based on the description. We also ordered the pork belt and the scallop fried rice. The pork belly was fine but the fried rice was unexpectedly bland. I don't know if we ordered a proper representation of the menu but based on what we did order I wouldn't go back. I feel like maybe they were aiming for something like Dai Lo but it wasn't even close.

We tried the Chef Choice menu at Mother Tongue, and we were amazed at how delicious each dish was. Rich flavors abound. Special shout out to the shrimp and scallop dumplings & the pork belly! The cocktails were amazing, too!

I am quite conflicted writing this review.

First, I would like to say that the food at this restaurant was very very good. I was there with a group of 5 other girlfriends and we were all quite impressed with the assortment on the menu and the flavors when it came. The main entrees were the stars. My favorites were the whole fish entree (w/ curry sauce), short rib, and the scallop fried rice. I would pass on the duck dumplings. They were okay but definitely nothing special.

Second, the atmosphere was also another great positive for me. It had that cool lounge vibe and ambiance that you strive for in most downtown restaurants which made it ideal for a good night of catching up with friends.

The part of the evening that put a complete damper on our mood was the service. Our waitress was very helpful with picking out the top dishes and giving us recommendations but it seemed like she was one of two on the floor. Every time we wanted to order another round of drinks or our food we had to flag her down. The worst part of our meal was that the kitchen was so slow. For a 6 person reservation we spent 3 hours sitting at the table and more than half of that waiting for our meal. After one of my friends (who has worked in the restaurant business for several years) mentioned to our server that she should have informed us of the back up, we were given complementary dessert. (Honestly at this point I just wanted to leave but it was a nice gesture). However, they also forgot to bring us our eggplant dish after several inquiries into where it was - and no one knows if they charged us for it or not.

Overall, I really wish the service wasn’t as terrible as it was because the food and atmosphere was great. Had I been there with anyone else, I probably would have gotten up and left after waiting over an hour and a half for our food.

The worst experience I may have ever received, my group and I had been running 10min late and attempting to reach the restaurant and give them a heads up but no one answered our calls. Once we got there we had to wait and additional 15 min since there was no spot for us. Drinks were not great and they took forever to get to us, along with the food. Also our waitress failed to mention to us last call in the kitchen so she decided to just stop serving us food. After complaining and speaking with a manager we proceeded to wait another 40’min till our following meal. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Ruined our night, ambiance is not at all presented as to what there Instagram holds.

Very disappointed that I decided to have my NYE dinner at Mother Tongue. No countdown. Not great music. The waitress did not tell us that kitchen was not serving past 11. We were not given notice of last call for orders. Considering we had a 10PM dinner reservation and it was New Years Eve, we expected to be able to order until midnight. You should NOT have advertised that this was supposed to be a NYE dinner as there was going to be no food orders past 11 and no one telling their customers that the kitchen was closing then. The other tables around us were also disappointed with the lack of communication. It’s too bad because the small dishes that I did get to order was good but overall, the service was so disappointing and you guys left a lot of money on the table.

Came here for NYE. The restaurant is very pretty, the food is outstanding! I had the Pretty Lodi drink and it is now my favourite drink. The service was good, could have been a little more on top of things. However our hostess was Wonderful when she came by.

I took a chance and booked Mother Tongue for a birthday dinner. The food was innovative and really excellent and the service was pretty good although the server was less attentive once it got busy. I would definitely go back and I highly recommend it.

I came with a large group. Our server was extremely accommodating and made sure everyone got what they wanted. She also made great recommendations and knew exactly how much was needed to make sure portion sizes accommodated our party size. Overall the food was great! The short rib and fried sea bass are a must try!

It’s a small restaurant with a downstairs bar, the ambience and decor fit really well for the price and quality of the food.

Would definitely come back!

Excellent little place that you could drive by and never know it’s there.

Similar Asian fusion to Dai Lo but more cocktail focused and better pricing. Waitresses are down to earth and fun to chat with.

I would totally return!!

The food was great an so was the hostess. Our waitress on the other hand was rude. There was another reservation for our table after us at 10:15 pm that the hostess informed us about at around 9:50. Instead of bringing us our bills in a timely manner, she brought us the bill 7 minutes before the next reservation was set to arrive, and caught an attitude (storming off, slamming receipts and debit machine on table, etc.) when we let her know that there was mistakes on the bills.

Dean's service was fantastic. Seating options weren't great so we ended up sitting at the bar. Most of the food was excellent - calamari, bao buns, tofu. Didn't love the duck dumplings. The Milani (?) cocktail was delicious. Good music and nice vibe. Thanks!!!

Helpful friendly staff. Food was very good and the servings were a reasonable size. Plenty for sharing. I would say it was a bit loud but some people might like that. Just a bit harder to have a conversation. I would go again.

Went for dinner (date) on Saturday evening. We sat downstairs (which is a quieter spot than the main floor if you're looking for conversation!). Start to finish the service was friendly and attentive, and the food was high quality and seriously delicious. I would say it's a big of a vegan's nightmare for those that may have that restriction in their party. We shared the trout cerviche (fish from Hooked - a well known fish monger for obtaining sustainable, fresh fish if that matters to you - which it should), the general tao chicken buns, duck dumplings the beef short rib, and the plum tart with custard. My partner had the non-ABV cocktail (made with Seedlip), which was a highlight for her too (sometimes a detail that is missed).

Food was fantastic - duck dumplings or crab and scallops fried rice were my personal favourites. Server was attentive but understood that we just wanted to catch up so didn’t hover too much. Also noted that I had an allergy (dairy) and made sure to point out when she took our drink order which dishes I definitely could not have. Space is a little crowded and loud but overall a great evening and will definitely back.

This is my second time going to Mother Tongue. The first time, my friend and I sat at the bar where we chatted with the bar manager (Jeremy?). He was engaging and friendly and made us incredible cocktails tailored to our tastes. On the second occasion, I brought my friend who had just moved from Vancouver to really sell her on Toronto. We sat at a table and ordered a variety of plates to share, all of which were perfectly executed. Top notch service once again. I will definitely be back soon.
