Sister to Chef Patrick Kriss’ Alo, Aloette brings elevated dining in a casual diner atmosphere located on the ground floor from Alo’s building.
Be sure to come early since the restaurant only seats 38, with 6 booths and 14 bar seating. As their website emphasizes, First Come, First Served.
Menu is a simple one-pager broken down into To Start, Appetizers, Mains and Sides with a good variety of seafood and meat options.
Similar to Alo’s attention to quality food and amazing service, Aloette proves to do the same while maintaining a reasonable price: appetizers that are good to share ranges from $14-18, and mains that are good for one ranges from $18-28.

One of their most popular items is their Aloette Burger ($18) which comes on a house-made bun and topped with fried Beaufort cheese, which sets it apart from other burgers in the city. Another plus is the highly addicting double-cooked fries that comes with it. Did you know? The double-cooked fries takes two days to make.
Though Aloette is becoming quite popular because of the burger, what actually made it a winner for me was the Ribeye Steak ($28). The quality of beef was amazing – tender, juicy and well-marbled. And seriously, you just have to try it with the bone marrow butter! Quality, price and portion is just perfect, making this one of the best steaks in the city.
A great new addition to Toronto’s food scene as can be expected from Chef Patrick Kriss.
