Checking back to one of my old neighbourhood of eateries. The Azarias Restaurant still shines bright. Grey Cup Football Sunday and the place was lively. The aroma of delicious cooking filled the restaurant dinning area as we entered. We were greeted and seated in a...comfortable setting with lots of table space to explore the chef's menu creations again. The choice of libations is endless with many wines’ spirits and brews. I started with the feature cocktail, a Pear Cosmopolitan and it was spectacular. Good wine choices to follow. The waitress was well rehearsed and made ordering simple. The Shared Seafood Platter was the starter and set up the rest of the meal choices worthy of sharing so we can try all the chef is offering. The whole meal was most excellent and entertaining as each plate made good dinner conversation. From the start to the finished it’s a polished act that’s worthy of a visit.More

I had to find a restaurant that could accommodate up to 20 family members for a funeral lunch. From the first phone call, I knew this restaurant would be perfect. Mark, owner, and his staff kindly answered all my questions and guided me to pick...out menu items that would ensure everyone was happy. The food flowed out so people could enjoyably eat, drink and share family stories. Food was distributed so that the big eaters had more food, and the smaller eaters were not overwhelmed with too much. Everyone commented how delicious the food was and everyone was contently full. My favourite items were Short Ribs, Beef Tacos, Fried Shrimp Tacos, Macaroni and Cheese, Kingsway Beef Sliders and the Arugula Salad. Actually, everything we ate was so good! Mark was very accommodating to my last-minute changes regarding the number of people attending and for food preferences. He greeted us, expressed his condolences and remembered many of our names. Everyone was very personal and treated us as valued guests.More

Was at a friends who raved about the food and ordered take out for dinner. WOW. Was impressed by everything and considering it was take away wasn’t even very hot when we sat down to eat it. Can’t wait to actually eat at restaurant when...food is served after it’s made!! Favourites truffle fries, Montreal smoked meat sliders and Kung pao chicken and shrimp tacos! Lobster and shrimp gnocchi was great would have been even better with a little extra parmesan and fresh pepper (that u always get at restaurants)!More

We had our first meal at Azarias last night, (outdoor seating as required by the COVID-19) guidelines. We had decided to try the restaurant because the menu looked so interesting. We ordered the beet salad which was adequate and then proceeded to 4 cod slides....The “cod sliders” that were delivered were in fact shrimp sliders as we discovered after the first few bites. They were much to spicey for my wife, but I ate the four shrimps without the slaw and taco. I mentioned to the server that shrimp rather than cod sliders were served and she asked with my wife would like to try one cod slider which came over-cooked and with way too much batter. We also had the smoked meat slider which were corned beef, but tastey and the beef dip, which was tender and flavourful. I cannot recommend this restaurant because of the lack of attention to detail in the preparation and serving of food. Moreover, when the bill came, we were charged for the one cod slider, which we should not have because of the error in serving us shrimp tacos and that I interpeted the server’s offer to get a cod slider to make up for the error. Overall, we were disappointed.More

Ordered a number of different dishes. All of them were well prepared and travelled well. Excellent job introducing take out. Mark added in a new salad for us to try which was very good.

As everything is shut down around many places in the world and people are taking all of the required actions to help stop the spread of a virus, Azarias has stepped up and are doing an amazing job of take out from their wonderful menu....We enjoyed Azarias at home last night and the food was great just like it is when we eat in...it was great the service, pick up or delivery. Thanks to all who are working hard to try and make things a little normal, Kayla and her team their were great...must admit I did miss the site of Mark running around, we will get back there. To everyone stay safe and we will be back for more take out.More

So the place just keeps getting better...Heidi was one of my favorites but now there is Kayla and the place is really stepping it up...I think they sent Mark golfing permanently. We had my wife's birthday there and everything was amazing, on a Saturday and...the place was hopping and Kayla was excellent as was Erica our waitress... Back the other night with a couple old friends from Mississauga and they absolutely loved the food, the vibe and the place was again nice and busy. I know some people think they are trying to rush you, not true, just take your time ordering and everything slows down to your speed. I will keep going back as it is an easy choice as we always enjoy the food - the people and it is a bonus when Mark is in the house running a little 'nutty'...More

Fabulous service, great atmosphere. We had share plates - shrimp taco's (a bit salty), risotto (a bit too starchy) smoked meat sliders (great) and kung pao chicken (too sweet). Overall a fun evening.

We chose this place for our girls Christmas dinner based on all the positive reviews and we were not disappointed! The food is served tapas style so you can try multiple dishes, it tends to get pricey but worth it! The scallops were melt in...your mouth, best scallops I had that’s for sure! Seared ahi tuna also delicious, sliders were awesome, lobster gnocchi melt in tour mouth! Everything was super good Would definitely go back but make sure you make reservations otherwise you won’t get in! I understand why the place was so busy!More

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.
