Old World Style in Greek Town. Friends rave...

Old World Style in Greek Town. Friends rave about The Palace so we tried it on a quiet Tuesday night and it was nearly full. However, we soon discovered the crowd was a Quebec-based bus tour and soon we were alone with our server in this compact restaurant. Fine with us as it facilitated conversation without shouting. The Palace looks a bit dated outside and inside, certainly not palatial, but once we were heartily greeted and ushered past the cluttered open kitchen and seated we were quite comfortable. The European-looking split level room is finished in stucco, with dark posts and beams, and terra cotta tiles forming a faux roof at the rear of the room with a few random pieces of artwork on the walls. We began dinner by sharing the sturdy little house white wine and the Cold Mezza Platter, an assortment of 3 pleasant dips: Taramosalata, puréed Roast Eggplant and Tzatziki with tart pickled beets along with a basket of exceptionally tender right-off-the-grill pitas. The pitas were so good, we requested a second basket. For our mains, we both had the Roast Lamb that was accompanied by buttery-soft roast Yukon Golds, and more than well done cut green beans and tiny carrots that showed ample evidence of a too long repose in the steam table. The ample portions of lightly sauced roast lamb was flavorful and tender, rescuing the overall impression of the meal. For dessert, we shared a successful rendering of Baklava, rich with nuts and honey nestled among many leaves of phyllo. Yum! Service was prompt, friendly and competent throughout our meal. Our overall impression is The Palace is a candidate to have their interior refreshed and food plating skills dragged into the 21st Century. However, with any luck they'll be spared a Restaurant Makeover, When we can enjoy a filling and comfortable meal in downtown Toronto for less than $100 before gratuity, that's a successful dining experience and just what The Palace modestly provides.

This we reserve for special occasions. It is a lovely place, great service, right across from the Pape Subway. The appetizers are so good that you can't choose! The chefs can be seen and you can see the ingredients as you pass that area. Stop me before I drool again! Not for the kids, but for anniversary or heavy date.

Very hard to make a comment when establishment is closed with a little sign saying closed today due to Greek Easter. Further more disappointed that your web site made the reservation and confirming it.

I have lived in the Danforth area for almost 30 years and dined at all the Greek restaurants. For the past seven years, since discovering Palace, I almost only eat there. The food is completely authentic, delicious and very reasonably priced. There is no dish that has disappointed either me or guests. Fish and seafood are specialties that I highly recommend.

Among the best grilled fish and seafood in the city, but modestly priced. The verbal wine list has some lovely little-known bottles from Greece. It is not right on Danforth, in fact you could walk right past it without realizing it is there, directly across Pape from the TTC station. More elegant and sedately paced that any other Greek restaurant fisture in Toronto's "Greektown". A longstanding spot for special dinners among the old guard Danforth community.

This is our new 'go-to' place to eat when in Toronto. We love this place. Great tasty food, service is just the right amount of attentiveness and the place is well maintained. We were allowed to sit and visit after finishing our dinner with no push to get out. Thank you.

I was a little disappointed in the service to be honest. We went to celebrate our anniversary and felt a little deflated in the lack of service given. We had to ask if we could have wine and also if we could have coffee at the end of our meal as well. It felt like we were being rushed to order and leave when it wasn't busy at all. I didn't want to make a big deal about our anniversary but when lack of any conversation is given, or a simple what brings you to our restaurant, is not even asked, it makes me question whether I would return or not.
