Not sure what the problem was with the AC , but it was very hot upon our visit ! The kitchen fans were not as efficient either as it was a bit smoky and smelly ! Service is great , food amazing ! We noticed the entrees portions were a smaller versus opening night , which was our first visit. Very disappointed that the restaurant does not offer sparkling water ! The answer was , their fridge is full of alcohol and no room for water !

Nice renovation. Good ambience and very good service. Food was lacking flavour. My stuffed pasta dish had one undercooked and 4 over cooked and not well-drained pieces of pasta. Flavour was bland. Needed seasoning. My partner’s smoked duck also lacked flavour and was served medium to medium well. Not good for duck. Definitely Instagram food. Looks way better than it tastes. If you are a visual foodie, you will love it. If you are a taste foodie, you will be disappointed.

The beverages from bar were excellent. The pierogies like appetizer would be tastier if more crisp, really personal preference. The pommel frites were 10/10. Portion size on the entrees were not consistent with the pricing. Presentation and plating of entrees were pleasing to the eye & palate.

We really enjoyed our lunch - pomme frites were awesome and burger & sandwich were both delicious. Margaritas were unique - Jalepeno & cherry combo was a hit and we’ll both be making return visits to this gem.

Sadly we were very disappointed. Group of six people were excited to finally be able to get the Gladstone Commons. Never like seeing the same ingredient highlighted in two dishes (black garlic) as it seems that is meant to impress. It didn't. Despite an interesting menu, execution was simply not there. In fact, we left shaking our heads as to what all the hype was about. Bison short ribs that were fatty had not been cooked long enough to render the fat. Risoto while tasty was actually cold. We shared five or six apps and none left us wanting more. Clearly the ex chef knows his trade however the kitchen needs some work to deliver.

The food, service, drinks were impeccable. Constructive items for the future would be this: 1. Portions are small which is okay if the price is reasonable. 40$ for 2 slices of steak, not so much. 2. Being a new restaurant, it seems to be running very well. Experience was awesome. My issue is this. If you are new in the game and you are showcasing your new menu, you CANNOT run out of items on such a small menu. Our reso was a Wednesday and scallops and octopus were not avail. For how intimate the menu is, you can’t be out of items in the first 4 weeks of business. We were looking forward to these items as many do. We came for these dishes :). Will try again next time. Thank you !

This restaurant was recommended on Facebook by someone we know well. So we wanted to give it a try. There were 4 in our party. The restaurant, although very "urban Toronto", has absolutely no ambiance and because of it's interior, the conversation noise rises and is very loud. I found myself shouting to be heard across the table. We ordered 3 appetizers: Heirloom Carrots - tasty, but a truly stingy portion of 5 carrots laid out on a plate and presentation was horrible. Scallops - tiny and sliced in half & augmented with sliced radishes to make it look like more - I don't even think they were cooked through. The fried chicken slider was very tasty. My husband ordered the Halibut - it might have been 5 oz - hardly enough for the a la carte pricing, or a dinner for a man. Two of us ordered the lobster ravioli with lobster on top. I ate mine even though it was not hot and not really tasty. My friend did not eat hers. I had a stomach ache all night and could not sleep. The other guest ordered the chicken and said it was fine. We ordered a bottle of white wine after sending one back because the taste was sour. When we ordered a second bottle of wine we were informed they had no more. This is a pricey restaurant - they need to step up their game for sure. We are usually very easy to please and love good food. This was not an experience that will see us return. I truly do not enjoy passing on negative comments about restaurants. I know they have struggled terribly since CoVid hit. But these comments are 100% honest - this restaurant just did not "deliver" what we were hoping for.

The food was excellent!! We had the tasting menu and it was delightful to have the chef explain how much care is put into each dish and then be able to taste everything he described. The wine pairings were great, the service was excellent. The only thing I’d improve is the ambiance at the back. The bright lights from the kitchen were extreme - anything that could shield the tables from the light would be lovely.

Food was just lacking "something" flavour-wise, overall. Presentation was well done. No music / ambiance in the back 1/2 of the restaurant. Lots of potential here but needs improvement before I would go back.

The chef's at Galdstone Commons are artists. Every dish is beautifully presented and taste is magnificent. Their welcoming staff compliments the comfortably designed interior of the restaurant. This is our favourite stop to eat for special occassions or to just treat ourselves to a wonderful evening.

This is the 2nd time we've dined with you. The food was awesome. My lamb was fall off the bone tender and was perfect. We ordered the very top dessert that had creme brulee in the ingredients. It was very strange and may have required our server to tell us it wasn't a really shareable dish. We will definitely be back tho.

You have a great spot. The plating and menu are stupendous. The execution? Not so much. The beet dish lacked acid and needed a bit more salt that would have made it perfection. The parsnip with the STUNNING pork was totally undercooked. I want you guys - sincerely - to be booked months in advance. You have what it takes but these fundamental errors are holding you back. Because I used to travel for work all the time I’ve dined all over the country and therefore my palate is pretty sharp. I’m also an above-average home cook. Not bragging at all, just telling you I’m not the average diner telling you this. There are still some basic skills that need work, and if you can master that, you’ll have a gold mine.

We have always enjoyed our meals at Gladstone. I will only make one comment. I ordered the cod for lunch yesterday and did not realize that it was fried cod. I ate it and enjoyed it but it may be wise to let guests know as I would have chosen a different dish. Thank you for always making us feel so welcomed.
