Reader Reviews of The East Ender
The East Ender by Vicky from 1212 Queen St. East on 2013-04-25
"This place delivered one of the best meals I have ever had in Toronto. I was amazed that it wasn't busier, but just because a restaurant isn't bustling on a Wednesday night doesn't mean it should be disregarded. The Pork and Black Truffle Dumplings were a delicious start, and the baked Goat Cheese stuffed Beet salad was creamy and warmed us up on a rainy spring evening. Our mains were recommended by the owner who was informative and attentive, not overbearing. Considering the number of restaurants I've been to where the wait staff are non-existent for most of the night, I would rather have a waiter come to the table to ensure the customer is happy and refill the drinks, than disappear not to be seen again until the bill. The Alaskan Black Cod just melted in your mouth, buttery and sweet, it paired perfectly with the shitake mushrooms. The Quail and Gnocchi was fantastic, and I quite enjoyed the accompanying bok choy and glazed carrots that came with the mains. A truly wonderful experience overall and the prices, compared to restaurants of a similar quality, are great. Can't wait to go back! "
