Situated on Toronto's first intersection—Front and Yonge—this upscale restaurant shares a city block with the Hummingbird Centre, the Hockey Hall of Fame and BCE Place. Lunch packs in the business partners and their clients while dinner is mostly pre-theatre or after-work supping. Chef/Co-Owner Robert Buchanan works an assortment of steak (grilled Black Angus ribeye, CAD33), seafood (seared Georgian Bay whitefish, CAD25), chicken and lamb into a Cal-Ital fusion cuisine. Lunch features options like butternut squash risotto with duck (CAD15.95).
Staying in Toronto as part of my summer trip I visited a few eating places but this was the best in the heart of the city and reasonable value. Great wine list (I believe the owners actually import some of their own delicious european and Californian selections) and presentation of the food courses - lamb superb and all fresh veg and salads great. I would certainly go back to sample more deserts as I was trying to resist being greedy! A real mediterranean food gem the other side of the Atlantic.I can recommend it with confidence.
My fiance and I were considering Acqua for our wedding venue, but were rudely turned away by the arrogant event planner who could not be bothered to take 5 minutes away from standing in an empty restaurant to speak to us about the most important day of our lives. We were not warmly welcomed into the restaurant, but were instead left standing in the entrance as the event planner shoved a business card at us and said he had no time to deal with us because he had to oversee their lunch. Did I mention the restaurant was empty and we had stood outside the doors for 20 minutes until the staff finally decided to open their doors? My suggestion: Don't waste your time trying the food or hoping to experience the atmosphere of Acqua because they clearly don't have the time for us or anyone else.
