It is one of the few restaurants that I have gone to several times. The food is consistently reliable, tasty, well-prepared and well presented. It’s a nice casual place with refined well prepared food.

Phenomenal. One of those meals where, with each bite, you feel more melancholy over the fact that it's all going to be over soon. Everything was great and very reasonably priced. One of the best meals I've had in Toronto.

I have now been to this restaurant three times
It’s hard to find a reliable place that offers innovative and tasty food. This place is better than all the places that I’ve tried on king street—cause everyone raves about them

Really great dining experience. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Quiet, cozy retaurant, great for a date or special occasion. Start with the homemade bread, the eggplant spread and a pork plate, cured in house. Perfect. Highly recommend

This is my second time at this restaurant. And, unlike many restaurants in Toronto there was consistency across the board. The food was carefully and tastefully prepared. It wasn’t overworked, And the staff were pleasant and helpful. A real nice change from all the chains in Toronto.

Server was fantastic, and flatbread delicious but took at least half hour or more to come out...(7 other people in resto)
Wine pour was small for the price.
And other dishes were tasty enough but just not very interesting...certainly not compared to all the glowing reviews I read.

Loved the restaurant and the staff and service.
Thought the food was unremarkable. Fish was very salty due to soya sauce and bavette had little flavour. Cabbage accompaniment was delicious.
So sorry wanted to love it.
Had some good wine. And a lovely cocktail made by the server.

This understated Bloorcourt restaurant serves delicious food which can be shared. Our group of 3 shared all the appetizers and 2 mains. There was plenty of food.
The flavors were light and savory.
Beautifully prepared steamed sea bass was the highlight as well as the scallion pancake appetizer.

We ate at Alma on a Friday evening after a very busy week. It was the perfect place to relax, have great food and excellent service. The menu of small and large plates is well thought out with enough choices to mix and max well. The pomello salad was a great shared starter with the citrus taste enhanced by chiles and salt. The lobster spaghettini was equally good. The wine list is small but again well selected - we enjoyed a refreshing Spanish white which went well with everything. We hope to be back soon.

Fabulous waitress, but the food didn’t blow me away. The entrees were on the pricey side of Toronto hipster spots and were quite low on substance. Flavours were reasonably good. Highlights were the pomelo salad and pork dumplings. Don’t bother with flatbread. It’s literally just hot flat bread. A little literal.
Our waitress was fantastic and handled the delay in our order brilliantly.

Brought my dad in since he was visiting and it was one of the most amazing meals we've had. Staff was extremely kind and accommodating even with my friend who had several allergies! The food was a perfect combination of nostalgia and adventure. Familiar enough that you recognize where the dish stems from but made with ingredients that intrigue and amaze your taste buds.
