Updated December 29, 2023. We came again tonight. Everything was delicious as always. Recommend sitting at the bar I'd you can. Last year, my husband enter a culinary lottery draw he saw advertised featuring some local restaurants & bought a ticket. We were delighted to have won a second place prize, which was gift cards to seven restaurants! Tonight we had a long overdue date night & tried Stofa as our first location. We were lucky enough to be seated at the bar, where we could see into the kitchen (behind glass). We were ecstatic to have this table, it's always our favourite as we get to watch things as they are made. Our server was the bartender. He was incredibly friendly & attentive. My husband started with an old fashioned, & I tried a finger nihonshu. This drink was the creation of the bartender, & so good, I may have had a few! It was a 5 course menu. The bread & amuse, a chef's choice, & then a second , main & dessert you pick. Everything was delicious. The steak dish was one of the best my husband, has ever had. He almost didn't share any! Not a single dish was disappointing or just ok. All were fantastic, & I would happy have the entire meal again. & just might. We will be going back, & have already recommended the location to friends!View more

Me & my fiancé had the 5 course menu & it was hands down the best meal we've ever had. Every dish tasted absolutely amazing & the service was excellent. It was hard to pick my favorite dish but I would have to say the duck & the scallops were the highlight of the night for me. We will definitely be back here!View more

To the Chef & team at Stofa please know that you exceeded our expectations for the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing for our milestone celebrations. Thank you so much for a memorable evening! We enjoyed fabulous cocktails & mocktails to start & each menu item was thoughtfully presented & delicious. The focaccia & duck butter is outstanding. Can we have some to go please?! We appreciated the choices offered with the tasting menu. While the menu changes periodically, highlights for our party of 5 were: the Squid, Scallops, Bison Cheeks & for seafood pasta lovers, the lobster was over the moon! Shane, the Sommelier, shared his in-depth knowledge of the wines that perfectly paired with each dish. We were surprised & delighted by the choices including some excellent Ontario wineries. Overall, the wine pairings elevated our dining experience. Amazing evening, we will be back..... thanks again!View more

the food! 5 courses (w/o matching wines) & we were stuffed in the perfect way, which made it well worth the price. plenty of choice (& the two or three surprises that you do not choose were also delicious). server was helpful & friendly & just great overall. you can get a real variety of stuff in one meal. no'bad notes' as everything we ate matched really well, & made for a great meal overall. nice pace - you are not rushed along. well-seasoned, too; sometimes i find restaurants (even'nicer' ones) just dump salt on things & here they relied on cooking technique (i.e. time & skill & practice!) & ingredients instead of doing that. they inquired about allergies too when we ordered the tasting menu. access notes: the seating space is on the main level, up a short flight of steps with a railing & a lip at the door. the seats are roomy with either no (in booths) arms or soft wide sides (not hard wooden arms) & move. the washrooms are up a steep flight of stairs (like in an older home).View more

Wow! Ambiance feutrée avec un fond de musique lounge. Service extraordinaire avec beaucoup de soucis dans la manière de présenter les plats & dans la manière de présenter les vins. Nourriture exquise avec beaucoup de saveur. Présentation des plates mérite facilement une ÉTOILE MICHELIN. Bravo! NB: merci pour accommoder avec un menu pour les enfants.

The food & service was simply put phenomenal. We did the 5 course tasting menu & we were definitely not disappointed. Each dish was timed perfectly & done to perfection, our server (Shane) was attentive & a pleasure to chat with. Would go back in a blink of an eye, for anyone wondering if it’s worth it, I can tell you it isView more

Our second visit was a let down unfortunately. We went for a birthday in August & we’re so blown away we decided to spend our anniversary there tonight.

In general, it’s a good restaurant & the service is solid, but the quality of the dishes tonight were just ok. I’d still recommend people to go but I’d advise reviewing the menu. The squid was good but skip the duck starter & the lobster pasta mains unfortunatelyView more
