I have to say, NAO is so hot right now. It is classy and elegant without being overdone. One can appreciate the aesthetic appeal of the restaurant simply as they walk in and pass by the beautiful patio. I have only ever sat on the patio however, I am looking forward to moving inside as Toronto gets colder.
The drinks are fantastic and strong. The food is delicious. My favourites are the Japanese Five Spice Frites and the Whole Branzino. My meat-loving friends say the burger is phenomenal.
The one negative comment that I have heard is that NAO offers their best steaks as sharing style although there seems to be few options for a great and affordable (under $80) steak for one.
The servers here are well informed about each dish and extremely attentive.
