Diner Reviews
  • "Tried this place out for lunchwith a friend of mine. It's nicely tucked away in the Renassance Court with a private patio which is really rare to find in yorkville. The food were excellent. I had the striped bass while my friend had the chicken parm sandwich. Both dishes were quite tasty and they definetly dont skip on the portions here (especially compared with most of the other Yorkville resturants). Will definetly be back again to try their dinner menu :)"

  • "We were a group of 6 women, enjoying an evening of friendship, discussion, and a lovely dinner. Three ordered salmon, the others the beef. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. The food was all cooked perfectly. Service was attentive. Creme never fails to please!"

  • " Food is excellent. We had an excellent dinner and all six "foodies" were very pleased. Each of ordered a different main douse-- the duck, striped bass, scallops, fillet, and lamb. All were terrific. The grilled squid appetizer and gazpacho were also excellent. We will go back"

  • "They are located very close to shopping area in down town and have discounted parking space as well. Food were very good. We ate fish of the day and filet mignon. Tasty and very nicely provided. Waiter was very friendly and knowledge food. Well worth it for paying."

  • "pretty good place for brunch and nice outdoor table !! I got a ziti but it wasn't really good. However, the rest of foods are quite tasty especially desserts."

  • "This was definitely my worst experience in yorkville area. The food (except for Salad!!) was so blend ; no taste, not even nice presentation! Especially the veggie sweet potato quiona dish. The chicken was burnt! I was craving for a good dessert; and the chocolate creme brûlée was far from delicious; it tasted like store bought chocolate pudding! It really failed my expectation! Service was slow, and the server wouldn't bother to come and check on us!"

  • "Went there for a small group gathering and everything was great - atmosphere, decor and food! It didn't occur to us that it was during their Summerlicious time, so we went for that on the spot. Great menu choice. I really enjoyed the triple brie bruschetta and dark chocolate/banana creme brulee. They offer outdoor and indoor seating. We went for indoor as it was very chilly that night. It had that date night romantic kind of setting, lovely. Will return for an outdoor experience. They also offer 2 hours complimentary parking, so make sure you have your parking ticket validated. Overall a fantastic night!"

  • "I recently went with a friend to enjoy a mid week summerlicious dinner. The food was great, the service was excellent and the evening was memorable. I will definitely be back."

  • "Wish they let people bring their own wine ! 14$ to 16$ for a 9 oz its getting out of control , they are not the only one but when you do the special 3 course meal at 35$ and you want to get a glass of wine with your dinner it certainlty adds up to the bill."

  • "Far too expensive for not a great enough quality of food. The sauces are pre-made and cannot be altered. The entire restaurant smelled of cigar fumes. The server wasn't all too friendly either. Overall, wouldn't recommend."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "With five options for each of the three Summerlicious menu categories (appetizer, main, dessert) there was great variety ... and staff gladly modified the options to suit the diners' preferences. Result: perfect meal for an evening business meeting."

  • "I took 7 friends to this restaurant for dinner based on previous good experiences with lunches. Diners were lunch portion sized for much higher price and services were less than satisfactory."

  • "The salmon was chilling. Not only mine but my friend's too. I asked the server they said that's how they serve."

  • "went for summerlicious & it was average at best.If a restaurant is creating a special menu for Summerlicious,then they should stick to it & prep for it.The whole reason for 'licious' events is to promote your restaurants by showcasing your menu.Creme was not prepared.had a goat cheese salad on the menu;when the salad came,there was no goat cheese!salad was no different from 1 you get from Metro.had to ASK for goat cheese on a goat cheese salad.flank steak was average.choc pot was lovely,but again the menu says "almond tuille" & again this was missing.when asked the server about it, she said the only tray was dropped earlier so they didnt have any? point is if you are to be part of Summerlicious,do it right!I wont be dining at Creme again."

  • "I went here for summerlicious and had high expectations considering the location, price, mad menu. I was extremely disappointed. The salad was soggy, the salmon was flavourless, and the crime brûlée was unappealing. Most of the staff were very friendly, however one server was blatantly rude to us. Unimpressed and wouldn't return."

  • "It was a lovely evening with delicious food and great service. We only wish we had found it earlier. We would've eaten there every night."

  • "My friend and I ate here a couple of days ago and opted for the summerlicious menu, which was very good (I would come back to try the other items on the regular menu as well). Sheldon, our waiter, was excellent, making very good food and wine recommendations. Professional service, good food, roomy patio - all in a fun and trendy neighbourhood. Would definitely return."

  • "We for a great lunch on their patio. Relaxed friendly service that wasn't rushed at all. Very good value for the product. I would go back anytime."

  • "I highly recommend this lovely restaurant. The location is perfect (tucked into a courtyard in Yorkville, so beautiful and peaceful); the food is divine*, the service was absolutely incredible. This is my second (or third) time here, and every single time is wonderful. (This time, we ordered from the Summerlicious menu.) Our server (a woman, don't remember her name) was amazing, and the maitre 'd actually wished me a good evening USING MY FIRST NAME (he must have gotten that from my reservation). Very impressive touch. *I had a heavenly brie-and-fig "bruschetta", their grilled flank steak (so tender!), and a gorgeous chocolate pot de creme for dessert."

  • "Very nice setting -- mostly glass-fronted, to let in the maximum amount of light; you could almost imagine you were outdoors even if you weren't. Tables nicely arranged, to allow maximum ease of movement between them. Food ... the bread was wonderful, the texture & temperature suggesting it had very recently come out of the oven. The chicken was flavourful & tender, the accompanying vegetables in a very nicely spiced sauce, just right without being overpowering, & the green beans were lovely & crunchy. As a chocolate addict, it would take gross mismanagement for me not to enjoy a dessert like the chocolate pot de creme -- delicious! My only quibble is that the service could have been just a little faster. Overall, a good experience."

  • "You can never go wrong with this restaurant. The ambience is nice. The staff are friendly. The service is good! But most importantly, the food is consistently delicious!"

  • "-service was slow and it was not busy -food did not meet Yorkville expectations--wasn't very fresh -the manager was very friendly"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Very quiet place in a little nook off Cumberland. Easy to miss if you don't know the area too well but it lends itself to a quiet and relaxing time with your company and your meal. Had a Summerlicious lunch experience there and the food had very nice taste combinations - a great example would be the bruscetta with pickled figs and brie. The Moroccan chicken was tender and juicy with a very nice flavour."

  • "A great meal. Again. My favourite place for a languid, sensual, gastronomic meal. The vichyssoise is superb."

  • "I was looking for a restaurant close to Koerner Hall as we had a concert to go to that evening. We were a party of 6 varying in ages from 21-90.After reading some reviews, I decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. It is a lovely spot in a pedestrian lane-way between Cumberland and Yorkville Rd. You can easily sit quietly outside or inside, either way it was very bright and relaxing. Everyone's food from the appetizer, entrees and desserts were fabulous! Service was very good and the meals were reasonably priced; especially for the area. A party of 6 left for just over $600 with a generous tip and that was with wine, beer, appetizers, entrees, coffees and dessert. We would definitely return to this restaurant when in the area."

  • "Creme Brasserie has an amazing outdoor patio that is located in a quiet square off the main street. We were hoping to sit outside, but as it was early in the week no one else was on the patio so we ate inside. Hopefully next time we can enjoy the outdoor patio! The food was tasty and the service was very attentive."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "I was in the mood for a great hamburger medium rare and a glass of wine - and they had one with bacon and cheese for $15 - great value - and a good selection of wine. The rest of the menu looked interesting and it was recommended by my lunch mate who goes there often."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "I had a great time at Creme Brasserie. Order the duck steak instead of the regular steak because of the portions. If you are very hungry, you will be disappointed with the portion size. If you had a good breakfast, its a good find."

  • "Positives: The food was good, we weren't blown away but not disappointed. The table setup was great and good for a group our size (12). When the food arrived, it arrived promptly for all diners, something that is a challenge for larger groups. The kitchen appeared very well coordinated. Negatives: We had an 8pm reservation we weren't seated until 8:45. Overall the front of the house service was very amateur and slow. While waiting for our table, drink orders were placed that never arrived, the wrong drinks arrived several times and one guest found a plastic wrapper in her drink! Even after the restaurant was empty the service was slow."

  • "We enjoyed our recent dining experience at Crème Brasserie very much. The food and service are terrific and well presented. I enjoyed excellent beef tartare and lamb chops while by partner enjoyed the vichyssoise and the salmon. We even found sensible parking. "
