- Not Four Seasons Service!CliffordDined on 11/6/2014I took important business client - service actually distainful, slow and inappropriate interruptions when service actually did occur.
- Fab sceneyvrgirlVIPDined on 11/2/2014Great space, busy all day and available for great food. Downstairs from more substantial Cafe Boulud for less price and a bit more casual atmosphere but still very upscale and quality! Highly recommend.Special Features:
- Lunch with friend and her babypatriotDined on 10/22/2014As a former Torontonian now living in Massachsettes, I had not yet had the opportunity to visit the new Four Seasons hotel. While the outside entrance is too nondescript, i.e. we drove up to it, not knowing we had arrived, the inside is a minimalist's dream! With a retro 60's, 70's kind of Mad Men vibe. Grey yet glamourous.The food at dbar was to die for delicious and they had a high chair waiting for my friend's toddler. We loved the presentation and flavors of the Yankee burger and excellent, personable service. The ice-cream with butterscotch syrup and popcorn desert was a creative concoction and sinfully delicious. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to visit Toronto and dbar again soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good foodWineguyDined on 8/23/2014We had a good lunch at dbar, the lobster roll and beef Tatar were good . However we ordered halibut for entree and it was quite disappointed, the fish was overcook and the dish was not quite 5-star hotel presentation. Grilled fish with oyster mushroom and brown carrot. It would be more presentable to add some green or red ingredient . The service was good but the chairs are not suitable for lunch and we were afraid to bend over during the lunch .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A quiet noshMattHoltzVIPDined on 8/9/2014We ate on the patio. The service was friendly just a little disorganized. It took a little while to order but everything was delicious. I would go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service and food were terrificthedudeofdrinkVIPDined on 7/31/2014Wine selection is very nice. Lots of food groups t order from so no matter what you feel like, you will find something. Bring a group of people and hang out, inside or out.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Lunch at Four SeasonsArdiDined on 7/8/2014I had lunch 2 times at dbar and the service was very disappointing. I have to say food was very tasty and simple.not a personalized service,cold and mechanical,server assistant placed every plate and walked away, no explanation no conversation. Salt and pepper shaker was dirty with ketchup stain on it. 2 servers and 3 servers assistant were asking me the exact same question twice, I was offered everything twice. Napkin was dirty and had hole on it. Again there was no engagement at all, every plate was placed on my table and nothing was described. Server offered me coffee in the middle of my main course!! I had to wait 20 min to pay as they could not find the CC machine!?Special Features:
- Great lunch on SaturdaypeterspixDined on 7/5/2014We reserved at dbar because lunch was not available in Cafe Boulud upstairs. In hindsight, we are glad that we made the change - the lunch in dbar was supreme and the ambiance was wonderful. We lucked-in to a feature "prix fixe" that offered three courses with three choices each for a very reasonable price and we were pleasantly surprised. We first considered the sidewalk patio but chose to sit inside and we were glad of that - the patio was extremely open and it would have been hot, windy and noisy with the road construction underway in front. Indoors was great and the food was well presented and tasted wonderful. Good jobSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- dbar is a hot new spot in Yorkvilletable42Dined on 6/20/2014This was my second visit to dbar in two weeks. The first time was a birthday dinner and the second was meeting a few friends for lunch. The Charcuterie and Cheese platter was delicious. With a selection of 3 or 4 slabs of cheese combined with 3 or 4 excellent cured meats and pates, everything was really fresh and beautifully presented with tasty condiments and lots of hot bread toasts. Although it's meant to be a shared appetizer for a group, two of us shared as a light main course. Save room for dessert! The hostesses and wait staff are amazing. They create a very welcoming atmosphere and are always smiling and knowledgeable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bit of disappointmentNottooimpressedDined on 5/24/2014Had great previous dining experiences with Cafe Boulud upstairs, however they have now closed the restaurant during lunch time and moved the lunch menu to the casual bar downstairs. The seats are not as comfortable, more suitable for a drink rather than a meal. Food quality was mediocre for the price, with rather surprising small portions for certain entrees. Service was satisfactory but definitely not a 5-star hotel expectation. With tables so close to each other, a laughing crowd at the table nearby was quite disturbing. Dessert menu was rather disappointing with limited varieties. Overall, not to my expectations as was lunch at Cafe boulud.Special Features:
- Toronto CoolChrisloveslunchDined on 5/2/2014Beautiful, modern, trendy restaurant in a hip, upscale section of Toronto. Very attentive waitstaff, delicious food, nice ambiance. I hope someone takes me there again the next time I am in Toronto. We loved it. Good to be on an expense account ha ha.Special Features:
- the food was spectacular!craigarVIPDined on 4/24/2014Our waiter forgot to take our order for about 20 minutes (they seem a bit shortstaffed), but after that the food came out at a great pace. The duck egg was quite tasty, but the halibut.... the halibut was perfection. it was amazing. Easily, the best halibut i've ever had. Cooked just perfect with delicious complements of spinach and chanterelles. Wow. Will definitely be back. And very soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very poor foodJM2107Dined on 4/19/2014I was very disappointed with the food. Considering the Four Seasons is an elite-level hotel, I expected way better. I had the halibut, which was soooo dry, even I could make a more moist dish. Also, the accompanying sauce was too sour and didn't complement the fish at all. For a $40 dish, it was unacceptable. My partner had the beef sauerkraut and it wasn't that much better than what we can find at any hot dog stand in Toronto, except it was on a fancy wooden platter. The service and ambience was good but the food was a huge disappointment. Needless to say, we will not be returning.
- Very expensiveWolfieVIPDined on 3/29/2014I guess the location warrants the expense in this case. The food was good. Not plentiful for the price and the drinks were outrageously priced. $18 dollars for a cocktail? Crazy. I would come back for the service and ambiance only. This is once in a lifetime splurge.
- DisappointingDisappointingVIPDined on 1/16/2014Lobster Salad for over $28.00, not worth it at all. It was hardly any lobster at all. I ordered a cappuccino and the waitress gave me a Latte instead. Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto is well known for chintzy wine pouring per glass, but they charge wine per glass at the same price like every hotel. The wine portion was much less than other hotels. The waitress looked straight into my friend and asked: Is it your birthday today? OMG! It was suppose to be a surprise at dessert time with a candle. The restaurant was informed twice when booking and was confirmed in a phone call conversation.Special Features:
- Issy Sharp where are you now?PerplexedVIPDined on 1/15/2014One wonders who is responsible for this flagship hotel of the Four Seasons that is already listing badly. (Scaffolding around the the lower floors fixing what? ) Today an indifferent lunch in "dbar" was rescued only by the bottle of Chablis. Astonishingly already the fabric of the chairs and carpet in "dbar" show signs of wear. Frankly, there are much better restaurants in every respect for lunch just steps away in better decorative condition. I make these comments with sadness rather than joy as a long time enthusiast of Four Season, though perhaps no longer.
- We went for a small familyOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 1/15/2014We went for a small family lunch for my mother's 89th Birthday. We were concerned about noise, and food that my elderly parents would like, and everyone was happy, my mother really enjoyed it. The soup my father had , (I had a spoonful), was fabulous!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
