Missed my friend Chris, but Andrew was very good. The venison was a treat, and we look forward to returning next time we are in Toronto.

This is the fourth time we've booked the private room at Bolands and had Chris arrange a set menu with wine pairings. This latest was to celebrate a 30th wedding anniversary. The evening was fantastic. Our guests of honour loved it. The food was excellent, wine was wonderful and we would do it again without question.

This is the second time I have been to Boland's. The service was great, the atmosphere was very pleasant and we had a great time. The menu is filled with a list of very interesting and unusual food combinations (I love it). The creations from the kitchen are as unique and interesting as they appear on the menu. I had two minor problems, the pork tenderloin was a little under cooked and a bit tougher than I expected and the profiteroles' pastry was too dense. That said our party thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we will be back again in the future.

We returned after a year or so and loved it again. Service excellent and our dishes were all very good. We especially enjoyed the nice background music by a husband and wife singing duo. And always nice to have Chris the owner stop by to chat.

We had a delightful evening. The food was excellent, compliments to the chef. We had a few allergy challenges and they were covered off in a friendly and delicious manner. We appreciated everything. We will be back!

Service lacked - waitress was so flustered and intense that she didn't connect with clients and lacked warmth. Waited way too long for menus, then drinks, then when meal came had no cutlery. Small things but service was poor. Food okay.- big portions if you like that. Clientele older. Placed seems busy though so they have a following. Was offered a complimentary night cap which was a nice touch.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Our appetizers alone are worth going back for; he: mushroom soufflé (daily special) and mine: crab and boursin soufflé . Both delicious. I had the liver appetizer as a main: loved it. My friend had the cod with trout mousse. He declared the trout mousse to be superb. The fish was perfectly cooked but unfortunately, it was under seasoned. It had a dusting of pistachio which was much too subtle (perhaps it was inadvertently left off?) but in any case, the fish, while itself was expertly cooked, it would have benefited from a miso or lemon glaze and seasoning. Otherwise the meal was perfection. The vegetables were appropriately al dente and well seasoned. Our waiter was very attentive, very responsive, and couldn't have done a better job at making our evening pleasant and enjoyable. We look forward to going back again very soon.

Excellent fresh cod was the best I've ever had. Chris Boland, the owner, is extremely knowledgable about wine, especially wrt food pairings. We appreciated the attentive service and cosy surroundings. it must be a neighbourhood favourite as we heard one mother/daughter couple drop in "just for the yummy mashed potatoes"
