Food is wonderful. Especially the chicken. Variety of share les to start with. We have a lovely evening.
This restaurant is so old that I don't like the decoration inside.
Amazing food, friendly service, definitely worth trying!!!
Wonderful late-night vibes. Friendly and courteous service with tasty food. A little on the pricey side but definitely worth it if you'd like a swanky date night spot. Try their truffle fries, they're DELICIOUS!
Unfortunately due to COVID not a good menu, other than that restaurant and staff are great.
It was my first time dining here with my daughter and the experience was lovely. The price was reasonable and the servers were great and professional.
Had a great dinner! Atmosphere was welcoming. Great staff. Jordan our hostess was amazing.
Great place ! Had a good time, would recommend !!!
2nd trip and it still doesn’[t disappoint. Drinks were great, food was amazing, and the service is always incredible! James was great as well as the other 2 that were helping out. We definitely recommend the seafood tostada, the beef tartar and the fish of the day which was Porgy today. We will definitely be back at some point. They also did an incredible job of spacing tables apart. Thank you all!
the food was very bad the steak was like rubber tasteless
great service, the server was very friendly and fun to talk to.
Continues to be an amazing experience. Like a movie that gets better every time you watch it. Highly recommended
One of favourite restaurants. Excellent service and friendliness of staff. Our food was excellent as always.
Great time! Great food
People were extremely friendly, especially their manager, Sayida! Food portions were great and their cocktails were top notch.
Excellent food. Well prepared. Enjoyable patio, even though it’s in the heart of downtown without any specific view or anything
That was a great atmosphere there. Thank you for the good service
Food is very good. Sat outside which worked well. Staff is exceptional.
Amazing restaurant- great value and a beautiful patio - would highly recommend for Summer 2020 (just bring a mask).
Menu has been significantly reduced but food quality and service still excellent. Prices are up but with Covid 19 complications that’s understandable.
Dorada fish special was delicious and enjoyed by everyone, however there were no accompanying sides at all, just the gremolata topping. We were still hungry but the only dessert offered was macerated berries. Alex provided friendly service.
Great food and services! Small portions sizes though.
I had moules and then steak with fries. The moules was very well done and well seasoned. However, the steak was a bit flavourless and had lots of fat and ligaments/tendons.
The many was very small, I guess due to COVID. Very tasty though: beef bresaola, kale Cesar salad - very tasty, truffle fries - great indulgence
The restaurant did not deliver on the promise. Though the ambiance was okay, I think that the food quality did not meet the price. I walked out thinking that I have paid less for better food in multiple other places in Toronto.
Additionally, some menu items were not available and the glass that was brought to me had a lipstick stain on it.
I do not recommend this place.
Montecito has been a favourite of mine for years. With the new normal, dining outside was great, the threat of rain did not deter us even though the restaurant was nice enough to re-schedule. It did end up raining that evening but we managed to stay somewhat dry throughout. The food was excellent even with a limited patio menu. Our server James gallantly toughed it out in the rain. Overall an excellent experience and a great opportunity to support our local restaurant.
We really enjoyed the covid patio experience!! Our waiter was exceptional, taking great care of the dietary requirements of our party. The cocktails were delicious, the food was above and beyond expectations! Great work in these challenging times!!
Travelled the world and by far the best grilled octopus I’ve ever had. The kale salad is a must!!
Great food and service. Covid had shortened the menu considerably :( but everything else was great!
Service was excellent and professional. Tables were spaced out 2 m, felt comfortable on the patio. Wasnt crowded. Limited menu as they've just re-opened but lots of delicious options.
Incredibly hospitable service and very well distanced tables on their lovely patio.
The service from the beginning w the hostess being very nice and friendly. The table service was great from Alex and it helped overall that it was half bottle prices wine night and they have a good selection. The Somm Jordyn was great. She is knowledgeable and really fun!!! Food preparations and selections are fun and very tasty! The small plates or mains gives the opportunity to enjoy get together dining or business dining. Will definitely be back when I get back to Toronto!
Thi was our 6th visit and it was just as good as the first. Atmosphere, food, and service is just fantastic. We took family there from Vancouver and they were most impressed. We will definitely be back
Beautiful dining experience. Food was exceptional. Really appreciated our server’s kind recommendations, with food choices and wine choice.
I love Montecito however it can be really frustrating that depending on where you are sitting prices vary. We were sitting in the bar during happy hour and had planned on going out to the restaurant but were told that happy hour is only in the bar area. The restaurant and bar were not busy and we were going to leave as we weren't prepared to pay more for the exact same food & drinks 10 feet away. I t doesn't make sense to me that a quiet restaurant is willing to loose customers based on where they are sitting.
This restaurant is great 👍. The decor, the welcoming, the service and the quality of food all wonderful.
Their Flat bread is amazing. Definitely go for it!
So good! Good food and service would recommend to anyone.
