tapas were great -- my wife doesn't like fish, yet loved the anchovy! the seafood paella was excellent they have food, and wine, which are off the menu, we asked and were very pleased with the choice the waiter made small and out of the way, but worth it

We enjoyed the entire experience at LaVinia--save for a horribly noisy party at an adjoining table: some people are soooo thoughtless. But the paellas we had were copious and inviting. My wife had the one with seafood and chicken (forget the name); mine was seafood all the way. I don't agree with a Malika, a previous reviewer, who described as... More

I went with my husband for a celebration. We were disappointed !! I ordres Paella. It was tasteless. My husband ordered fish of the day. The fish was swimming in a broth. It was extremely cold day, our table was close to the door and I was freezing every time somebody comes or leaves. Service was slow. I would say... More

The food was exquisite, the service was supreme and the ambiance was just perfect. When the chef came out to talk to our table I thought for sure I was in Europe for a moment. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes Spanish food.

After a lot of research I wanted to visit a special local place for Valentine's Day with my wife. The reviews were amazing and decided to give it a shot. The service was outstanding and couldn't ask for anything more. The food (mussels, soup, paella's were delicious. Just a tip I would suggest one paella can easily be enough for... More

We went as a group of 6 and had a great time. The restaurant's chef is the owner and he came out to check to see how we liked our meal. It was busy so I would suggest making a reservation. Very unique dishes and lot's choice. Great local restaurant with a large wine list. Enjoy.

The service was exceptionally attentive. The appetizers were delicious; carpaccio, white anchovies and chorizo. The mains were hit and miss. My dad loved his veal but we were underwhelmed by the paella, risotto and calamari. Would've given it a 4/5 at this point. The final bill was for $315. Much more than I expected. Disappointed.

Cozy family Spanish restaurant. All dishes are fantastic. Perfectly prepared and cooked with just the right amount of seasoning. Price is very reasonable. Amazing wine list - we had 2 amazing bottles of Spanish wines which you can't find at LCBO. Owner / Chef Fernando and his son Jamie are super friendly; they really express their passion and love for... More
