Alo is a contemporary French restaurant and cocktail bar located atop a heritage building in downtown Toronto. We celebrate the finest in seasonal ingredients paired with genuine hospitality. Our dining room offers blind, multi-course tasting menus, which our sommeliers complement with distinctive wines from both familiar and little-known regions and producers.

Our barroom, which accepts walk-ins, features classically-inspired cocktails and a sharing-style, à la carte menu consisting of raw seafood, meat-based entrées, vegetable-focused sides and desserts. We accept a few reservations in our barroom each evening.

Bookings for alo’s dining room open two months at a time and can only be made through www.exploretock.com. We offer two distinct dining experiences, the Dining Room and the Kitchen Counter, which are respectively priced at $135 and $165, with the option of adding wine pairings. Bookings for September and October open on Tuesday, August 6th at 10:00am EST.

Alo is typically available for private functions on Sundays and Mondays, as these are our usual days of closure. The space can accommodate up to 40 guests for a seated dinner, structured as a multi-course tasting menu. For more information, please contact us at events@alorestaurant.com.
