Meeting friends to celebrate a birthday, we convened at Merlot for dinner. Ambience was quiet bistro. Service was excellent, 10/10, well balanced and attentive but never intrusive or poorly timed. Relaxed and unrushed. I started with Fish Soup "St. Tropez" off the menu. Tomato based,...More

Ours was a ‘Fine Dining” dinner outing for a group of seniors. There was no issue with separate cheques which came with a pre-advertised 15% gratuity. The servers earned their tips as there was some confusion with the orders which was probably not their fault....More

Small intimate place - free of blasting music, one person for our table, vs. Multiple staffers doing this and that. Friendly server who gave us lots of options, did not rush us. Would return anytime.

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
