    We are currently spending 5 nights at The Hyatt Regency. Our original plan was to have breakfast maybe one morning at the hotel and eat elsewhere beyond that. We are greatly enjoying our big, morning buffets and it gives us a wonderful start to our day. We have only dined elsewhere once and that was because we were rushing to start a full day of touring Toronto and grabbed Tim's down the street to be quick!!! We have two mornings remaining at the hotel and the kids have already told us both days are going to be "at the great hotel buffet again"...it is adding just that little "extra" to our already great Hyatt stay experience!!! Can't wait again for the morning...can we just stay? I could get used to this service!!

    Went to a Summerlicious dinner here with a few friends and was highly disappointed. My salad leaves were too big and had to be cut, my steak was fatty and my dessert (key lime tart) was dry and flavourless. We had dinner at 6pm on Thursday and were the only ones in the restaurant. Our server however was very pleasant and very attentive.

    I had a fun lunch for Summerlicious with my friend. The food was good, but the server we had kept staring at my friend in a very inappropriate way that made her uncomfortable. He also dropped her appetizer on the table and said he would bring back a fresh plate, but he brought it back rearranged because the dish was cold and stank of truffle oil (portobella with brie). The surprising factor was that we were the only party in the restaurant aside from one elderly woman and the service mishap that occurred is unacceptable even in busy situations. My fries were too salty and my key lime tart was straight out of a box. Not what I would expect from a great restaurant on King Street. However, I did thoroughly enjoy my fish.

    This restaurant looks nice, and is quite pricey. The decor is great. Modern chic. Staff were not attentive, late to provide water/drinks to our table. The food was average, plating below average, overall value- below average. We ate from the Winterlicious menu. We went at lunchtime on the weekend.

    Arrived into Toronto on a Sunday afternoon and wanted some simple, good food. The King Street Social Kitchen sounded interesting but as I found out when I arrived, it is not open on Sundays, only the Bar was available. I assume the food was similar or same as restaurant. The Butternut Squash soup I enjoyed as an appetizer was amazing. The bowl was HUGE and loaded with natural flavors and a mild herb touch. Perfect. The rest of the meal (Arctic Char) was less memorable. Honestly, disappointed the Hyatt would allow reservations for the Social Kitchen and then switch me to the bar. Seems wrong to me.

    Came here for Summerlicious with a bunch of friends, and was not disappointed. The food was great (my favourite was the main - gnocchi with arugula and truffle oil), and with the diversity of dietary preferences in our group I really appreciated the vegan options on the menu. All in all, a satisfying dinner.

    A friend and I went for the summerlicious lunch menu and although the food was very tasty, i rated it 3 stars because my pulled pork sandwich was only lukewarm and the pork drippings cold! The chocolate mousse cake was moist and delish but my friend's chocolate ice cream sandwich was a disaster. She was served soft ice cream between two very HARD cookies. The cookies should be soft and chewy and the ice cream should be firm, not dripping. Thankfully, Suzanne (our server) was gracious to offer her another dessert when she saw my friend struggle to get the fork in the cookie. Aside from that, our overall lunch experience was good.

    Visited this restaurant for summerlicious, placed my order within 5 minutes of seating but had to wait over 1 hour for my main course. We were brought the wrong food, and the manager Tony came out to say there was a mix up in the kitchen. Wait staff are not helpful and are inexperienced. Left without receiving the dessert we ordered. Stay away from this restaurant.

    I have had lunch in the bar upstairs before and was impressed by the food and price in a hotel setting. The staff are always friendly too. This is my first time having lunch downstairs - for Summerlicious. The location in a moden mostly white dining room, below street leve,l is calm and relaxing even though it is in the middle of the entertainment district. The Summerlicious menu was great - we had Grilled Calamari and Salad , and a chilled watermelon and cucumber soup to start. Both were fresh, well presented, and tasted delicious. Our mains were lobster,apple and emmenthal sandwiches with a crunchy salad. Again very tasty and very fresh tasting. I can recommend both the mango sorbet and homemade icrecream cakes for dessert. Thankyou

    Had a quiet lunch on game day which was good for us as we had an infant with us. The food was good - sandwiches were tasty with nice sides, nice salads. The waiter seemed disinterested but was attentive. At lunch, the restaurant is actually Mix Bar on the lobby floor. Nice decor and table settings.

    We chose this restaurant based on proximity to The Princess of Wales Theatre and a few decent reviews. It also seems difficult to find a really good restaurant in the Theatre District. The food was so mediocre it was practically tasteless . It's a shame as the atmosphere of the restaurant is quite nice. Everyone that was dining that night seemed to be on a coupon so perhaps the kitchen was not on their best game and just putting out food that tasted institutional. We did not have a coupon and will never return.

    We were there by accident. A family group of 7. We meet in TO 2-3 times a year and the place we usually go to for Sunday lunch was booked up. We clicked on 'restaurants near by' we chose the Kitchen to give it a try. We did not know what to expect. However as it turned out we were more than happy with our choice. It's a great place; the food excellent; the ambience comfortable the service friendly. We all had a great time and we will be there again.

    King Street Social Kitchen is amazing! I met there with a colleague and a client for a breakfast meeting from 8:30 - 10:00. The food selection at the breakfast buffett would absolutely leave nothing missing for anyone. One from our party was Celiac and had many gluten free options. The atmosphere was clean, quiet, and inviting. The service we received throughout our visit was timely perfectly and was comfortably professional and polite. Full marks from me! I have been telling folks about this and will continue to recommend it. And, of course, I'm very much looking forward to going back myself! Hats off to you, KSSK!

    I attempted to have a breakfast meeting with a client, but it was a poor choice. The noise was a bit more energetic than I expected. The breakfast buffet was adequate but nothing set it apart from other breakfast buffets. The service was extremely slow and I had to get up and ask more than once to have my CEOs coffee refilled. If you are looking for a normal breakfast, this restaurant is ok but if you have important client meetings or are looking to impress executives with sharp service and selection of breakfast offerings, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

    We went before a Matinee theatre engagement with friends. We were 4 of about 10 people there so it was quiet and perfect for catching up with friends we had not seen for awhile. They were part of Winterlicious which was the reason we chose the place. However, they did not offer a regular menu in addition to the Winterlicious menu which, it seems to me, a large hotel could have done. The Winterlicious menu was not appealing to me personally.

    As a first time visitor, the entrance to the restaurant off of King Street needs a more welcoming and better lit staircase from the outside. Once inside the ambiance is warm, yet sleek. The staff were welcoming and helpful and added to the enjoyment of the Winterlicious meal. We both enjoyed our appetizers, but it was the lamb shank that was exceptional. The wine list although not extensive was reasonably priced. We both agreed that we would come back after Winterlicious during our theatre season.
