    My friends and I have eaten at this most friendly Restaurant many times. The food is freshly made and excellent and the variety for this Mediterranean Restaurant is great. Something for everyone.

    Great casual neighbour restaurant. Owner Robert is very friendly and accommodating. Normally I stick with the pizza, which is among the best in Toronto, but the steak special was divine.

    We love this restaurant and go there often. Best pizzas in the city, in my opinion. Also great daily specials. Two of us had the cod special last night and it was delicious......baked almond-crusted cod with a delicious salsa-like sauce, potato fritters, and yummy fresh veggies. The other two in our group ordered the spiced chicken kebab and one of their fabulous pizzas, and all our orders were excellent. Restaurant is a little below street level (just a few steps down) and is warm and inviting. Bathrooms are always clean and well-stocked, and are located on the main level....a big bonus! Nobody has to make their way down steep, treacherous, dimly lit stairs to find the bathroom. The staff are fabulous....always incredibly accommodating and friendly. Free corkage on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. What's not to love?!

    This restaurant is an excellent find! The food is incredibly good while not high priced. Nothing was over salted or overly sweet but instead was perfectly spiced and tasty. Everyone on staff was not just friendly but seemed genuinely happy. This is rare.

    The food was delicious. Chef Garber does wonders with fish. As well as steak and wonderful Shrimp Pasta. Our group loves the Beet and Pear Salad. Lemon tart with brule top a real winner.

    First impressions were not favorable, as the restaurant, its decor, tables, chairs and booths all looked very tired and well beyond updating. To walk in the front door of a restaurant and be greeted with sports on television staring at you at eye level at the walk up bar is also not lending to a great introduction. However, that's where the negatives end and the positives start. Wait staff were friendly, knowledgeable and prompt in their service. The food was hot and delicious save one of the pork tenderloin dishes having been a bit over seared. In my opinion the best of the meal were the sauces, reductions, etc.

    It was my first time at Aviv. Service was warm, hospitable, welcoming and friendly. My friend and I did the Summerlicious lunch menu. It was fabulous and great value. The server asked if we wanted anything to drink, and was gracious when we said we'd stick to water. That often meets with a cold shoulder, but we got nothing of the sort. I will definitely go back. I recommend it highly to anyone who wants a healthy, reasonably price meal with a patio.

    This is our third time dining at Aviv, and we are solid fans now. On all three occasions, we have come either before or after a Tarragon performance, and would highly recommend Aviv to other theatre goers. The food is always excellent, and the service even better.

    I like Aviv very much. Robert is extremely friendly and dedicated to making the restaurant as good as possible. We like to start with the crispy calamari....My husband likes the fish dish of the night and I like the various creative salads. The juicy hamburger with a pint of beer on Thursday night is priced just right! The middle east menu is interesting and I hope to try different dishes the next times we go. They always get us out on time to get to the Tarragon!
