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.”

The food quality was horrible and way overpriced for the portion and taste. And worst than that was the way the servers treated customers. The server had an obnoxious attitude and dismissed us when we called her over to the table. We weren’t even given cutleries when she served the food! She clearly did not care to serve the table. It was only after we asked to change the server, that we received a mediocre service. Overall, the service was disastrous and the food quality was so disappointing!

We ordered via Foodee for our team lunch, and salads arrive as literally chicken and lettuce. It cost us $19.35 each. I am appalled that the kitchen lets this leave the kitchen, as multiple meals are missing all their dressings. I could have done this myself by going to Loblaws and getting a package of spring mix and a chicken breast and saved fifteen dollars.

Great meal with a couple girlfriends this past weekend for the first time. Our waitress was lovely enough to let us enjoy our meal on the patio despite the earlier downpour the city received. The patio is lovely! Loved everything about the place and everyone finished their meals and raves about it. Will definitely be bringing my husband here on a date night!

Sean our server, the fresh dusk air at the front of the restaurant and the Peasant dinner with a Caesar Salad and the house red all worked together for an excellent meal. We even enjoyed our "neighbors" at the next table.

Great atmosphere. Amazing food. Friendly service. I go here at least once a year, for my girlfriends bday, as it is her favourite place and it didn’t take me long to see why. Great for date night or for meeting up with friends for some drinks and great food. It will always be a great time

Lovely restaurant. Trendy and excellent food. Wait staff are all beautiful people inside and out. The yummy wood burning oven makes the whole restaurant smell so inviting. And the fact that they have a private room on the second floor is excellent for small private functions!

I recommended the restaurant as a place for a large group of friends to meet and have dinner. Nathan told us up front that there would be an 18% gratuity given the size of our group, sorted out we would divvy up the bills, and we got settled. Given the size of the group, at a few points in the evening a few of us got up and switched seats, to spend time with other people. This didn’t phase Nathan in the least, and he was very cool about it. After the meal, and the next day, many of the group said very complimentary things about the restaurant, the service, and the food.

We didn't have any dinner on Tuesday so I had to complete the star reviews but they are meaningless. We got to the restaurant and it was closed on Tuesdays so we did not have dinner. Apparently Boookenda did not make the change requested by the restaurant to remove Tuesdays as an option. So we were disappointed by this platform and the restaurant. Bad service from Bookenda. I would recommend that the restaurant find a new online reservation system. This was terrible.

Good, eclectic menu. Very slow service, server was lovely. Cappuccino was awful. Burger and pizzas were delicious. The octopus was over cooked but the overall dish was delish. With some attention, this could be an excellent restaurant!

We had never heard of The Peasant's Table, but are glad that we found it. The pizzas were exceptional. One minor suggestion: We found the pasta slightly under-seasoned. Some salt & pepper on the table would have remedied that. Thanks for a great evening.

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.
