Just popped in for a glass of wine, ending up eating a few things from the menu. The gnoci and bitter greens were particularly good. The menu is small, as is the wine list. But it is done this way purposefully and what is on...More

Ortolan doesn't have a wide menu, particularly if one doesn't eat meat, as I don't. But what they have is superb...their gnocci is lighter than gossamer. You may not want to return often, but you owe it to go at least once.

Excellent find, although the quantities are quite small compared to the prices on the menu. But the quality: outstanding! Fine cuisine chefs on the work. Toronto's best retaurants have something to learn from them.

Food was amazing, our waiter was great, delicious wine, funky and cozy atmosphere. We loved it and will go back for sure - fresh and simple but wonderful flavors. Only drawback is that the neighborhood is a little sketchy and it was a bit hard...More
