Maitre d' and waiter welcomed us and recognized us from our previous visit eight months ago. Beautifully prepared dishes nicely presented by the waiter. Waiters are attentive without being intrusive. Varied wine list at reasonable prices. Atmosphere is quiet, unlike so many annoyingly noisy restaurants, and we could chat easily. Six very satisfied patrons.
Service was very good and exceeded expectations. Would definitely come again.
Good food and service, close to theatres
Mediocre food thought this party of three. Service and atmosphere were excellent.
The food and atmosphere were good but would have liked friendlier service. The waiter was good but the support staff not overly friendly.
What an incredible experience! Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious in every way - cooked to perfection and undoubtedly the best meal I have had in a long time! Fantastic. Highly recommend.
Outstanding food and service. The steaks were very good.
Great Italian cuisine and great service! This is our second visit to the restaurant and we were not disappointed!
Atmosphere, food, and service was above par! We will return the next time we’re in Toronto
Delicious food. We will be back.
I have been to La Fenice before. This time their menu was expanded, and it was wonderful. I had a great filet, but my wife's ravioli in a rose/gorganzola sauce made me regret my choice. They call it agnotelli(??), I believe, and it is TREMENDOUS. For dessert I had an old favorite, Zagilabone, which was as usual, "to die for".
The fish was over cooked but our waitress was very good.
Food was delicious. I normally do not like risotto but had the mushroom risotto and it was delicious. Our waiter Tristan was very helpful and friendly.
Amazing service, the food was so delicious and hot at delivery. Amazing restaurant
This is a bit of a tired restaurant. It's been around a long time but not necessarily the best quality
As good as ever. We were there 20+ years ago and standards for all aspects of this restaurant remain top notch. La Fenice will now be our restaurant of choice for Italian dinners in Toronto
This was our first time coming here and this restaurant exceeded our expectations! The food was amazing every one was extremely pleased with their dishes. The presentation was very well done and the portions were great. This is definitely a place we will be back!!
Food was awesome.
Great Summerlicious dinner. All our meals were delicious
Part of summerlicios - 4 of us had different meals- all excellent!
The staff was very helpful when an unexpected guest arrived making a party of five.
All our Summerlicious meals were excellent and enjoyed by everyone. Thanks.
Seafood linguine was unbelievable! Packed with mussels, clams, squid and shrimp. Overall we were really happy with our experience here.
Great place with great food
Nothing bad to say at all. Wonderful experience too to bottom. Food was probably the best I have had in as long as I can remember
We have always enjoyed dining at La Fenice and consider it one of the top Italian dining rooms in the kitchen. The antipasto is a superb and selection, and the pastas generous and flavourful. Now they have a new addition with a charcoal grill. As a steak lover, I was thrilled with this AAA Canadian rib eye, 14 oz. with chimi churri sauce. Perfectly done to my request, tender and simply delicious. And here is the kicker: $30. for the 14 oz steak. I thought it was a mistake on the menu. I have paid three times that amount for a comparable steak in this city. No, they explained, it is an introduction to their new grill menu. Go right now! Before they stop giving it away.
very friendly server, nice place for dinning, good food
The food at La Fenice was excellent. I enjoyed every bit of it. I will definitely be going back!!!!
Great Italian food with very excellent service!
Ate there before the symphony concert. My pork steak was perfectly cooked and an Arrugula salad was the perfect balance
Food was excellent and portion sizes were great. I had the fettuccine with salmone and light cream sauce. I don’t like heavy cream or a lot of cream and I’m glad I tried this because the cream was light and the dish was delicious! The tiramisu and creme brûlée were fresh, light and the best I’ve ever tasted. Service was attentive but not annoying. We also enjoyed the free bruschetta and bread with butter. I will definitely go again.
Nice Italian restaurant in the heart of theater district. Great place for pre/post theater dinner outing. Business casual attire.
Surprisingly fairly priced wine, I recommend the seafood risotto.
Great service, delicious food in a beautiful restaurant. One of our faves in Toronto.
We enjoy going to La Fenice whenever we’re attending a show, and this visit was just as enjoyable as previous ones. An excellent menu (though, surprisingly, we did not see a steak entree), and terrific service (thanks, Sydney!). The portions were generous and beautifully cooked. Thanks again!!
Took colleagues to dinner at La Finece while in Toronto for work. The food was outstanding, however it was trumped by the service. Danielle was an amazing waitress; eloquent, knowledgable and incredibly friendly. Her co-server was also absolutely great.
Chef needs to learn how to season food. My veal with mushrooms was so bland it was almost tasteless.
Our server was indifferent. He did not offer any specials but we heard him recite them to a nearby table after we had ordered. We had to ask for the bill and then wait for the machine, then he promptly disappeared. Overall a very disappointing experience.
Fantastic food. Great wines. Great service. Highly recommend. Been there multiple time.
Thank you, Robert, for the five stars! and for taking the time to share your experience on Open Table. We're so glad you enjoy dining with us, and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Great spot to dine before heading to a show in the area. Service was outstanding and the menu had many options to choose from. Wines selection was also very nice and affordable. Will keep on list for future shows to come back. Loved it!
Amazing food and amazing service. We will return!
Thank you for the five stars! We're so glad you enjoyed your experience at La Fenice! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Server used our corporate dinner to run-up the tab by suggesting “off menu” items. Apps and mains. Had to plead with him to share the menu for our mains. $144 for (2) appetizer platters (melon, prosciutto, shrimp and a few calamari) were ridiculous. Glad we ordered the mains off the menu. The “family style” meat lovers platter he suggested sounding great for a tailgate but not a business dinner. A little too pushy for my liking. Food was great!
I'm sorry, Mr. C if the server was being too pushy. He may have been overzealous in his delivery, but I can assure you that the intention is not to run up the tab; this is not our style at La Fenice, and we don't encourage this practice. Chef Rocco prepares many off-menu specials every day, and our servers do get very excited about the Chef's specialties. We are glad you enjoyed the meal! We thank you for your feedback and hope you will dine with us again soon. Sincerely - Rita F.
