Meet the owner

Thanks to enormous garden windows and a cool blue-grey interior, it’s hard not to feel like you’re somewhere Mediterranean when you dine at The Peasant Table. The restaurant opened in Toronto’s Riverside neighbourhood in 2015. Its menu matches features crispy sea smelts, cod fritters and grilled octopus.

“The vibe is very relaxed,” says restaurant manager Kasia Czajkowski. At The Peasant Table, customers are encouraged to taste their food, take in their surroundings and enjoy the experience. “We kind of want to treat them like they are family," says Kasia. "We want them to feel like this is a place where they can stay.”

Our first visit to The Peasant Table....recommended by a colleague. Service was exemplary (Amanda was our server) and the food was excellent. The price was very competitive with other venues. The only drawback was the noise level which was not conducive totable conversation.

The food and atmosphere were both amazing. The Service was generally good, but was not very attentive as it appeared that the restaurant was understaffed. It took more than 5 minutes for us to be seated, and another 10 minutes or so before our drink orders were taken. The servers were friendly, but just seemed to be overworked.

While the pizzas were a big hit, the Wild boar dish was disappointing. Expected something with a stronger flavour. Portion sizes were correct. Will return but will try some other dishes. P. S. Kitchen slow in making pizzas. Told they had some learning issues. We gave a good service reading because they told us the truth. Place is noisy and hard to hear in groups larger than 4.

Absolutely loved everything about the Peasant Table. We've already told loads of our friends about it and are planning to come back many times. The atmosphere, the service, the food, the menu - everything was outstanding. Can't wait to try everything else!

Seafood pasta (Nero di sepia) was delicious. Bottled wine @ half price on Tuesdays is great but should be more advertised to bring people in! Lack of atmosphere because the place was dead, but overall decor etc looks great warm and intimate.

A perfect venue for our family get-together, the right degree of informality, pleasant staff and a reasonable tab at the end of the evening. Definitely going to make this our neighbourhood go-to spot!

Loved it. So glad you are in the neighbourhood. And we really appreciated being able to bring our own wine with no corking fee. It was the reason we chose your place over another one.

This is a great spot, unfortunately, the food is really hit or miss-- some dishes are great, while others are really bad. I feel like cutting down the menu options and focusing on a few dishes that the kitchen could make really strongly would be helpful.

Great food! From the oysters to the tuna, the carpaccio and my black ink pasta, and the yummy profiteroles for dessert. One suggestion from my 14 year old son would be a non-alcoholic cocktail list. Attentive service throughout. This place is fast becoming one of my new favourite neighbourhood haunts.

This was our second visit and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The servings are generous, the flavours are distinct (with several unique menu items) and the service was fantastic. Thanks for another great meal!

Toronto best happy hours: East end edition

On Wednesdays this east end restaurant hosts an all-day social hour, where you can order draught beer, select bottled beer, house wine, and select spirits for only $5. All appetizers are half-off all day as well. There’s nothing better than a happy hour that feels like it will last forever, except maybe for modern Italian fare like polenta and meatballs and salmon affumicato.
