The menu is affordable and everything I've ever eaten there has been delicious. The place also has a backyard patio for the warmer weather.

I read some of the reviews prior but I must say that this place did not live up to the reputation. The food was just so so. T hi e pizza was made in a smallest oven I have ever seen in a restaurant. Oh...well onwards and upwardsMore

Delicious food and an awesome vibe! Our group of 12 was treated very well and all had a great time. Request the Guinness Chocolate cake ahead of time for your celebration. Unreal!! Highly recommended.

This little restaurant is a hidden gem! On Queen East in Toronto between Leslie and Jones street (hence the clever name :-)). Small menu, but I'm always suspicious of a small restaurant with a huge menu. That indicates to me a lot of pre-made frozen...stuff. Not this place! Everything is freshly made before your eyes in the open kitchen. I had the polenta appetizer and the beef brisket entree. Both fabulous! Decent wine list, too. Will definitely be back!More

This is a fantastic neighbourhood hangout with truly delicious food. The owner cooks everything in the tiny kitchen right by the bar. The service is excellent and you only have to go once to feel as though you are part of the Leslie Jones tribe.

Both my husband and I had the braised beef brisket. I enjoyed my meal; my husband thought it was very average. Wine was a bit expensive but we still had a couple of glasses each. The atmosphere was really nice; very comfortable. This is the...first restaurant that I have ever been in Toronto that only takes cash or debit. We most likely won't be back because my husband didn't enjoy his meal. On the other hand, our 9 year old loved her buttered pasta (very picky eater) and would like to return.More

recommended to me .. had the Salmon, 2 bites $25 ..wine by the glass, glasses are for fruit juice, tiny and expensive. They're charging fine dining prices for average..I won't go there again.

I went with a friend to Leslie Jones for the first time. We ordered the stacked eggplant, and the ratatouille and shared them. We really couldn't decide which we liked best- they were both uniquely, sublimely delicious!. Everything about the food, the atmosphere and the...service was outstanding. We will definitely be back! thanks!More

Last night I attended a private party at Leslie Jones and it was so amazing. The cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious appetizers all added to the festivities. The brisket sliders, spicy chicken skewers, mini poutines, and carrot cupcakes were the highlights on the menu....Highly recommended!!More
