Sister to Chef Patrick Kriss’ Alo in Toronto, Aloette brings elevated dining in a casual diner atmosphere located on the ground floor from Alo’s building.
The inside is a casual diner feel but elevated to have a bar atmosphere. It’s not a big restaurant: only seats 38, with 6 booths and 14 bar seating
Be sure to come early to Aloette their website emphasizes: First Come, First Served.
Aloette’s 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 range 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 came with it.
Did you know? The double-cooked fries takes two days to make.
Though they are becoming quite popular because of the burger, what actually made it a winner for me was the Ribeye Steak ($28).
The quality of the beef was amazing: tender, juicy and well-marbled. And seriously, you just have to try it with the bone marrow butter!
The quality, price and portion are just perfect, making this one of the best steaks in the city.
Aloette is a great new addition to Toronto’s food scene as can be expected from Chef Patrick Kriss.
Hope this Aloette restaurant review helps you decide if you want to eat here and the must-try dishes to order. If you enjoyed Alo, you’ll definitely want to visit here.
