I ate at Doria this week. It is situated at Yonge and Roxborough Street in Toronto. By noon the place was bustling. This area has lots of similar restaurants and from what I could see Doria was the most popular destination. The menu was well suited for lunch and had lots of soup- salad- panini- entrees on the menu. The service on the patio was attentive and pleasant. I was there to catch up with a dear friend and was grateful that the server allowed us plenty of time to peruse the menu.
The one flaw is that the main course came out before I was finished my Caprese Salad. The table was crowded with dishes as my companion's entree came out before she was finished her soup. There was no bread on the table. The panini with sun dried tomato, mozzarella and a avocado was bland. The Caprese salad used mozzarella di buffalo- wonderful- however it lacked fresh basil. My companion enjoyed her pea soup and her caesar salad- it had pita chip croutons. The portions were modest- I found they were perfect for lunch time.
I enjoyed lunch on the patio and while the food was comprised of good quality ingredients - it lacked flavour.
The service was above average. The overall experience was average.
