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.”

I had been to your restaurant twice before, but this last visit was definitely a much better experience (not that the first two visits were not good, or I would not have returned for a third time). Our wait person was lovely - friendly but professional, and the food was delicious, just an excellent evening.

2nd time here was terrible. Last night, for our anniversary. Cod fritters with aioli was beyond bland. No flavour at all except grease. Also had the meatballs on polenta and hubby had crab linguini. Neither had much flavour. It's like the meatballs had no garlic or salt. They were also overworked. Very tough. Wtf. Service was slow. Had to ask a different waitress for more water because ours was too busy not checking in on us. Doubtful we will go back

Out with foodie friends and had a great evening. Service was outstanding and as usual the food was enjoyed. Great variety to accommodate all palates. Decent wine/cocktail selection. We will be eating there again.

This was our second time at PT. Loved it and will come again. Waiter ("Stephanie" on bill) was exceptionally good. Started with a glass of prosecco which was really terrific - better than what other restaurants serve as their choice. My appetizer (cod w/ squid-ink batter) was a little bland. My husband had the smelts which I tried - I'll get those next time! Shared a salad which was terrific. Then the real delight was the wild boar meatballs. We ate them virtually in silence they were so good! Washed it all down with a lovely superTuscan. Too stuffed for dessert. Look forward to our next visit!

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.

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.

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.
