    what a beautiful Italian restaurant in the heart of the beaches. The food was amazing along with the servers but more important the ambiance is excellent!

    Not the best meal we have had there. Unfortunately the beet salad was too vinegary, the pasta special was overcooked, and the mousse was crusty. The risotto was disappointing. One server for a full restaurant so he couldn’t keep up. We enjoy this restaurant usually so were disappointed. For $28 a plate we expected better.

    We have now been to La Sala 5 or 6 times and it never disappoints. Food is great, service is wonderful. What a gem in the Beach!

    We enjoyed the restaurant... perfect location, food is always tasty and they have a brunch menu in addition to their full menu of pasta. Excellent value for good selection, pleasant atmosphere and there was no loud music in the back ground so we could converse easily. One of our “go-to” places in the Beach.

    My husband and I were marking a special occasion on Saturday, so we really wanted to have a great evening. La Sala did not disappoint! The welcome was warm, the service was attentive and friendly, and the food was delicious. For fine dining, La Sala has become our neighbourhood alternative to a trip downtown. Thanks!

    First visit and will definitely consider returning when in Toronto. The restaurant feels like you're in a friend's house. Beautifully decorated and very clean. The service was really good and the food was great. Great value for the money. I'll give it five stars!

    La Sala is a great spot—reliable and close. My beloved and I go for celebrations. A bit more than fashionably noisy at times, which can be intrusive.

    Just celebrated my birthday at La Sala and had a lovely time. The service was excellent, accommodating our group to a larger table so we could enjoy a panoramic view of the restaurant and watch the chefs create one stunning dishes after another. The food is exceptional, particularly the pasta. Our server went out of his way to make us feel welcome and was perfectly on cue to meet all our needs. I even received a complementary Birthday dessert. We would definitely repeat the experience.

    A bit close proximity to be comfortable for dinner conversation. Food was excellent, appetizers were so large that the mains became vastly difficult to manage. But otherwise very pleasant Sunday dinner,

    Very nice patio for brunch. Service is attentive and prompt. Food is great at very reasonable prices. Short stroll to the beach afterwards is a plus. Will definitely visit again.

    This was the second time we've eaten here and it was well worth it. The service is great and the food delicious. The menu has plenty to choose from, although I'd really love it if they had a risotto without the two things I hate the most - mushrooms, and seafood. On our two visits so far, we've tried the butternut squash ravioli; the lasagna; the fruitti di mare linguine and the spezzatino & tagliatelle...all beautiful dishes, and the wine wasn't bad either!

    We had a lovely evening. The tables are well spaced and acoustics are good. The service was impeccable, the wine list is extensive and well-priced, and I had a mojito that was outstanding. The dinner was more than acceptable, but could have been better. We will definitely return.

    Ambiance - As we walked in the restraint was busy, we didn’t wait long and ended up sitting at a great table near the kitchen - the restaurant was brightly lit and there was no music at all. Also, there were no dinner napkins on the table, but later, as we started to eat, someone walked in with a big stack of them - we had to ask for them. Our server quickly folded five and handed them out. Food: We had looked online at what was available as myself and another guest had been specifically looking for seafood selections - we had a few choices in mind. No less than three of our table’s choices were sold out for the night - seafood soup, mussels, and the filet mignon. My friend and I shared a caesar salad - we added bacon - it was excellent! We had wanted to order mussels and seafood soup but had to settle on sizzling shrimp (which I found strangely sweet for italian fare) and grilled calamari (meh!). For the main, we had the black cod - which was bland and undercooked (I understand the concept of “rare” fish, but this was almost translucent throughout). We ended up having another caesar salad. Our friend (who had wanted the filet mignon) had the rib steak which she thoroughly enjoyed - others had lamb chops which were seasoned and cooked perfectly, and papardelle with ragu which was also great. When the bill came we were charged for an extra caesar salad - we had 4 salads in total and were charged for 5, even though one of the 4 was supposed to be a replacement for a meal sent back. We should have only been charged for 3. Service: There were only two servers on this night. I’ve been in the service industry for 25 years - and I’m not sure why management would only have two servers on for a Summerlicious Sunday evening. The restaurant was almost full when we walked in. It looked to me like there were about 4 sections on the main floor and I understand that there’s a second floor dining area as well - too many tables for 2 servers to offer great service in a casual fine dining atmosphere. The servers were rushed and clearly had too much to handle. At least one more server would have made the experience more relaxed and enjoyable. People around us seemed annoyed that they couldn’t get the staff’s attention to make bill payments. Beverage service: We had called ahead to ask about whether the restaurant had a corking fee - they do, so we brought wine. We brought white wine (looking forward to seafood) so we required an ice bucket. The ice bucket didn’t come until we were ready for the second bottle. We had two different wines - but we weren’t given new glasses for the second bottle - our server actually blended the wines by pouring into the original glasses. Towards the end of our meal (we were still eating) one of the servers started cleaning tables around us with cleaning solution - that’s all we could smell for the rest of the meal, and we also felt like they wanted to close. While the staff was very pleasant and professional considering what they had to deal with, but the experience wasn’t ideal. I have never actually written a review - but in this case I had recommended the restaurant and I was SO looking forward to it. I was disappointed that my friends were disappointed so I think the review is warranted. I’m always looking for good Italian food and good service. But the owners of this establishment need to take a little more risk with labour costs and inventory going forward.

    The cozy atmosphere at Brussels Bistro is just one of the many charming qualities of this gem in the heart of the Beaches. The large house features sunny yellow walls festooned with French posters, ultra comfortable chairs, and a peek at Chef Wils working away in the tiny open kitchen. With the menu boasting French classics such as Bouillabaisse, Confit de Canard and Steak Frites, you might be in the Beach, but you’ll feel like you’re at a home in Provence.

    Romantic spots for a dinner date in the Beaches Toronto

    The outside looks like a cozy beach cottage, but you’ll be greeted inside by elegance and romantic detail, from white tablecloth settings to maize-coloured walls, tastefully decorated with modern art. Music accompanies your meals at a soft volume so you can whisper sweet nothings to your loved one over a glass of champagne. The wild Irish salmon and AAA Ontario beef tenderloin are top entrees.
