Welcome to Garrison Creek!
At home in Toronto's Little Italy neighborhood, Garrison Creek reimagines traditional Italian cuisine in a modern setting. We have curated a colourful menu with the finest and freshest ingredients that bridge both traditional and unexpected Italian dishes to life. Also the craft cocktail list is both creative and approachable, with twists on classics.

Whether seated at the cocktail bar or fine dining areas of the restaurant, you can find yourself in a modern yet approachable atmosphere surrounded by luxe white and black marble finishes, black velvet accents and contemporary art installations.

The origin of the restaurant’s name comes from its location on top of what was Garrison Creek, which flowed through the city entering Lake Ontario just east of Fort York and was the military garrison for the region dating back to when Toronto was young.

We invite you to join us on a culinary experience accompanied by unparalleled hospitality.

Absolutely wonderful!
We live quite close to the restaurant and I can not begin to tell you how excited I was for Garrison Creek to open. The food was very good and paired with the fabulous interior it’s a wonderful trendy spot for dinner or drinks we look forward to visiting again and again. 👍🏼

We’ve been looking for a new date night restaurant next door to our apartment for years! Since The Standard closed, we’ve been lacking our “place”. We found it! Food was amazing, atmosphere was gorgeous/relaxing and the staff was beyond helpful and kind. We were blown away and can’t wait to go back. Thank you for our best date night in so long!

Truffle ravioli was outstanding. Loved the pizza, dough was light and crispy, sauce was seasoned well. The desert pizza was crazy good.

The restaurant was recommended for a first date. First impressions were good upon arrival; however, there was no interest in the fact we made a reservation. Table wobbled and there was no concern from staff to correct the issue. There was an urgency to order our food, but completely neglected for delivery of the bill. Staff said they were busy on the other side’s, but the lights were turned off. Lastly, bill was incorrect.

Our new pizza spot! They brought our kids over pizza dough to play with to keep them entertained. This was absolutely wonderful. Our kids are very picky eaters and they loved the pizza. My husband had a spicy pizza and enjoy it very much. He actually said he would come back to have it again. I had a mushroom pizza with truffle oil and it was very good.

The service was wonderful, wine was great and the pizza taste like something I pulled out of my freezer. Maybe other items are better.

Tried this place after seeing a bloggers recommendation. Each dish was fantastic. Fig and Prosciutto salad with a whole buffalo mozzarella was perfect. Grilled Pork chop with sauce from heaven was probably one of the best pork chops I’ve had. We saved room for the dessert pizza, they call tiramisu pizza and it was probably the most unique deserts pizza I’ve ever had. It was everything you would think a tiramisu pizza would be and more. A must try!

We had a wonderful experience, up scale but very approachable! The two fish dishes were exceptional , the octopus was probably one of the best I’ve had and the whole grilled fish was outstanding. I will be returning very soon.

Great upscale place in Little Italy. Food was sort of bland all around but service was unbelievably good, ambience and vibe were terrific for our family. Feels a bit like CIBO with much much better service.

We had an excellent meal. The Salumi mist was amazing, we ordered it based on the picture they post and I have to say for the first time it actually look the same as the photo. The two raviolis we ordered tastes incredible and again look the same as advertised. We also shared there steak of the day and it was a very high quality cut of mead, we could tell the moment it was cut, it was also cooked perfectly to our liking. This restaurant is new, check it out before it gets crazy busy.

Cheese and meat tray was good, lots of variety and portion size was more than adequate for 2. Can’t be said for the Alfredo, was over cooked and sticking together.
Service still needs to be tweaked, lots of servers on duty, but not necessarily useful.

We were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted and guided through the restaurant. Our server explained the menu and assisted us on deciding what to order. The food was delicious and I only wish I had room for more. The value was excellent compared to other prices we have see and we found the quality and atmosphere equally paring.

I had the lobster ravioli which I can highly recommend! Will return soon.

Ravioli's were amazing, probably the best I have ever had. This is bye far one of the of better Italian restaurants in the city. It's fancy but not over the top, you also get what you pay for and the quility is outstanding. I will be returning again soon.

The food was very disappointing. Way too expensive for what was served. The ravioli were cold and the sauce was not up to par. We were told 20 minutes after our order was taken that the branzino was not available. The chicken is not served with a citrus salad- its an organge Garnish. The sides on the extrmely thick chicken came out 20 minutes after the main. Limited options for vegetarians. Overall, it was too overpriced for the lack of quality of food. It's a shame as the ambience is nice. Will NOT go again.

Very good food and excellent service. However, the restaurant was empty which is unusual for Toronto. Nevertheless, we were more than satisfied with the mozzarella di buffala and the charcuiterie board. Plates were generous and tasteful. We then shared 2 plates of ravioli (lobster and rabbit).

1 bite into the appetizer (Octopus salad) we knew it was going to be a great meal, and it was food was amazing. Ravioli was phenomenal and so was dessert.. We loved the intimate ambiance, loved the decor and the fact that you can move from dinner to the bar for a yummy cocktail before you leave was great!!
Will be going back for sure!!!

This restaurant impresses on all levels!
The sophisticated decor makes any night feel special, and you can tell that the food is made with great care.
Watching Chef Marianna work in the kitchen adds to the ambiance that they are trying to create.
I was thoroughly impressed with how the kitchen was able to go off menu and create a vegan meal for us to enjoy.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to shake things up from the ordinary night life on College.

Everything was perfect. We ordered spring rolls, gnocchi poutine, salsiccia, panna cotta and souffle. Will definitely go back for more! And will definitely recommend the restaurant to those who love Italian food. Well, not just ordinary Italian food but EXTRAORDINARY ones. Garrison Creek should be on your Toronto must visit restaurants!
