The service and the ambiance of Splendido are excellent but the tasting menu is way too overpriced especially when you add in the wine pairing option. The food was delicious but I have dined at many fine restaurants, some with Michelin stars that were either comparable or perhaps better and paid less, in some cases significantly less. The quality of the ingredient is great but some of the courses were a bit stingy. One of the courses in particular was the slow spiced roasted carrot. I appreciate that it is slow roasted and turned for 5 hours but at the price I 'm paying I would expect more than a single carrot. My biggest complaint is the wine pairing, with emphasis on the wine . Including a beer for 2 courses as one of the pairings seems to be a bit of a gouge. Sake for 3 courses also seemed to me to be a bit cheeky. Only one red of reasonably good quality but still as far as Burgundy 's go was very average. It sort of felt like getting the last of the milk out of the cow before it goes off to pasture.
Splendido is the best fine dining I have tried in Toronto. All my other favourites are in Quebec. The chef is very creative, the taste of each dish is very flavourful and interesting. The entire experience is full of surprises. It is very sad that this restaurant is coming to an end, but I believe the new one will be more affordable yet good quality as always.
