Joni Restaurant

Elevated bistro favorites with artistic flair

When Park Hyatt Toronto reopened in September 2021 after an extensive revitalization, it unveiled the new Joni Restaurant. Offering a novel “bistronomy” concept, Joni takes casual bistro dining and elevates it with techniques of modern gastronomy. The hotel’s art- and creative-forward ethos translates into the experience at Joni, where you are invited to celebrate the art of dining in the sleekly designed space.

At Joni, executive chef Antonio Soriano is carving out a new culinary destination in Toronto’s upscale Yorkville neighborhood, with inspired dishes that are beautifully plated and ambitious in their creative interpretations. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu range is extensive and diverse, where you can stop in for a smoothie or continental breakfast in the morning or enjoy Ontario pheasant with foie gras jus or a 48-hour braised beef short rib in the evening.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • All diners will find something on the bistro-French-international menu to pique their interest. The menu includes options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free lifestyles.
  • Be sure to take in the design features of the Toronto restaurant: the curved, ellipse-shaped dining room; the curated art displays from local Gardiner Museum; an intricately handmade woven tapestry by Indigenous contemporary visual artist Nadia Myre, hanging over the fireplace; and a stunning contemporary staircase.
  • If you’re short on time, the Living Room (adjacent to Joni) offers casual hotel-lobby-esque seating for on-the-go guests looking to stop for a quick coffee, cocktail or glass of wine with a quick bite.
  • For drinks, cocktails are classic with a cheeky twist, and there is a comprehensive, perfectly organized wine list by hotel sommelier Tess Urbanowicz.
  • If you’re staying over the holidays like New Year’s or Easter, be sure to enjoy one of the specially curated, large-scale family holiday brunch experiences at Joni.

The Food

  • Fun takes on dishes like the Caesar salad with confit pork belly, the Southern fried Pheasant, the sourdough bread and butter pasta with miso, or beeswax poached lobster are just an example of the kitchen’s playful side.
  • Ingredients focus on a “micro” seasonal approach with many local purveyors, featuring B.C. spot prawns, Ontario trout or Quebec foie gras.
  • Afternoon tea is served on weekends. It’s a luxury tea experience in a tasting menu style, where courses are delivered one at a time and you can select a preference of sweet, savory or both.
  • The drinks menu also features zero-proof, non-alcoholic cocktails as well as tea-infused libations during afternoon tea and its very own signature Park Hyatt #4 blend by local tea purveyor Sloane Tea.
