Diner Reviews
  • "We have avoided hotel food because my other half was scared by one too dishes came out from hotel kitchens during banquets and weddings. However, Matisse is a redemption! From the ingredients to the cooking to the plating all were well planned and well executed. The pickerel was cooked perfectly moist. If it came with a crisped skin, it would have been a five star. The chicken was flavourful and the new potatoes were fresh gems. Desserts were truly delightful too. Our waiter was professional as well as friendly. He set the tone for the really enjoyable meal. The dinning room is warm and spacious. The colorful décor complement Matisse's paintings on the wall without being overwhelming. This place is definitely worth a visit when in Toronto."

  • "I had a great experience has when I mentioned to the waitress that ka cannot eat green beans she immediately removed the plate and made a new batch. When it came all the foods taste fabulous, you can tell that they took their time. I'm very please for listening to my request. It was noisy because of the FIFA game and it did not bothered us as we appreciate the chance to see the game as well."

  • "usually enjoy Matisee but not this time- this was a business lunch - found the noise level really high making conversation diffficult. There were not that many tables full and yet the lunch took a very long time - and the waiters were not attentive during our wait. I was embarrassed by this in front of my clients."

  • "Great place to meet up with people for lunch. Lots of variety on the menu so everyone can find something they like. Good location at Bloor & Yonge to meet up with people coming from different points on the TTC. Spacious room so you aren't on top of the folks next to you."

  • "I booked a reservation for Matisse for Mother's Day Brunch. It was advertised like so: "Treat mom to a delicious family-style brunch in Matisse and let our award winning chefs take care of the details. $35 per person (includes mimosa, coffee/tea)". When we got there, we realized there was no brunch. It was a regular hotel buffet breakfast. Very regular. Nothing special at all. The cost was $24 per adult which is their regular breakfast cost. So I knew then that there was no Mother's Day Brunch. I had booked this to be something special for Mother's Day, when I could have gone to Eggspectations instead! Extremely Disappointing!"

  • "Lunch time at Yonge and Bloor can be hectic, rushed and windy! Not so at Mamtisse. The service was friendly, the atmosphere quiet and the food was very nice. The Friday fish and chips were exceptional! A perfect place to be able to have a quiet conversation over lunch."

  • "Went for lunch with a group from work. I had the gnocchi which was quite good. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. Service was a bit slow, but attentive. Not much ambience or light as the restaurant is inside a hotel."

  • "Nice atmosphere - a litte loud for business conversation. Food good - perhaps a bit pricey."

  • "Both my guests had pickerel dish -- tasted as if it had been marinated a week in salty brine. This dish exceeded their annual quota of salt. The entire fish was over salted. My flat iron steak was excellent. The appetizers and deserts were very tasty. Our servers were going through the motions but had no interest in their patrons."

  • "I had dinner here through Winterlicious and I have to say I couldn't be happier I chose this restaurant to go to. Although it would have been nice if the restaurant had more seating, the ambiance was very relaxed and enjoyable. Even though our table was small it still felt like we had more than enough room. The service was very good and each of our courses came in perfecting timing. The food was absolutely fantastic!! I had the Lentil entry and I couldn't get enough of it, I never imagined lentils could taste so good and be seasoned so perfectly. Just amazing!"

  • "A friend and I decided to try this place for winterlicious. I think the ambiance was lacking but they had very friendly staff. The food was good and desserts were wonderful!"

  • "Try the beet and radicchio salad there is something about the combination of toppings and the vinaigrette that is a must try item. Food portions are great, and food is cooked to perfection. It's a quiet spot which allows for conversation. Amazing spot must try if you are in the area!"

  • "Went for Winterlicious - will be back again. The food was great and good portions for a reasonable price. Service was very good and our waiter left us to chat and enjoy ourselves."

  • "Due to 'weather' we opted to have dinner in the hotel where we were staying, and were very pleasantly surprised by the Matisse. They offered a prix fixe Winterlicious menu that was varied and reasonable, and the full menu was interesting and diverse. The wine list hit all the big reds and the cocktail menu was quite extensive too. Bloody caesars were excellent as was the food, which was hot and savoury with great presentation. The only thing that would have improved the experience was slightly more attentive service-- to clear glasses and appetizer plates in a more timely fashion, and we had to flag down our waiter for the bill. We would definitely go back."

  • "We booked on for a Christmas lunch and the food was good but there was no Christmas spirit No decorations, Christmas songs etc I was disappointed with this If you advertise A Christmas lunch then it should reflect Christmad"

  • "I wouldn't make a point of going there for dinner. There are just so many better places to dine in Toronto. The decor could use a bit of sprucing up as it hasn't been changed since it opened."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "The food was quite good. The service was unobtrusive; though it was strange to see a server wearing a union local button. The room is a bit of a cave, though the Matisse prints make the best of a bad situation. I understand that breakfast patrons might want a television showing CNN, but for a business lunch, the screen felt declasse/boorish."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Matisse. The food was great and well presented. The service was quick and efficient. Our only complaint - a bit on the noisy side - but, then again, given the heat outdoors, everyone was eating in! We will return."

  • "I recently went to Matisse for my birthday, as well as to take part in Summerlicious and must say that for my 1st visit I was greatly impressed....the entire experience was amazing!!! From the very courteous host(our server) to the timely manner in which our meals were brought to us, to the very savoury food!!!! Everything was so delicious and well presented. We were all so comfortable we didn't want to leave lol. We have vowed to go back to this great gem of a restaurant, both as a group(bringing more people) and as individuals perhaps for a quick lunch, or even on dates. A major Thank You to Matisse & the host for a marvellous Birthday dinner/Summerlicious experience :-) See you soon, sincerely Diana B"

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful Summerlicious lunch experience - crab cakes, grilled fish with a salad nicoise, and steaks that were beautifully presented and truly delicious. The service was perfect. The employees there were friendly, courteous and attentive to every detail - it was as if they could predict all of our needs. This is an attractive and conveniently located restaurant, one I would definitely recommend to others."
    Dined on 7/12/2013
  • "Went here for Summerlicious. Although the portions at most places for Summerlicious are moderate, we were pleasantly surprised to see that Matisse had big portions and the quality of food was excellent."
    Dined on 7/12/2013
  • "Staff friendly, but 35 minutes for first course to arrive after ordering is too long, especially at lunch time. Second course arrived 20 minutes after 1st cleared but dessert arrived immediately after main cleared. Group at 2 tables for baby shower/summerlicious. Second table with guest of honour (clearly marked by balloons) was served 15 minutes after 1st table. One hour and 45 minutes is far too slow for a lunch. Food was very good but had to be eaten very quickly.. Would consider returning but would advise staff of any time constraints."

  • "We went here for a Friday lunch during Summerilicious and it was a lovely menu, great and fast service."

  • "Noise level was a bit high coz the open door concept, hv a window sliding door or barricade would be better"

  • "We had a theatre preshow 5:30 reservation but upon arrival found that reservations were not necessary due to this quiet time of the day. The menu offered us was both the full evening dinner menu as well as a restricted price sensitive special pre-evening dinner menu. Service was friendly and relatively fast. Would definitely recommend visiting this facility."

  • "Great spot to meet in a central part of the city with access to all the subway lines. Food is decent, and services is good. I focus on this place as a good breakfast spot for breakfast meetings."
    Dined on 5/21/2013
  • "The food was decent however the service was horrible. The following are the reasons for what I say for the service: 1) The bread did not come out until about 5 minutes before the entree. This was about 30 minute into the meal. 2) The waitress did not give us any plates to eat the bread. We had to grab it from another table. 3) The waitress did not genuinely care about us. She would ask us a question and start walking away before we have a chance to answer the question fully. 4) There were not enough waitress for such a big place."

  • "Food and service was good but the look of the restaurant was very tired and shabby"
    Dined on 2/15/2013
  • "Still a hotel restaurant, but much improved! It's nice to have a new menu and be able to get a good meal when you need, or want, to eat in. Service is very good and the staff always remember us. The mushroom ravioli and pan-seared whitefish with quinoa are winners."
    Dined on 1/15/2013
  • "The restaurant looks clean, quite energetic. Perfect location. The food was not good, steak was overcooked. Our server simply forgot that our set menu included coffee/tea, until we pointed that our after we paid for the bill, and they refused to offer them to us again, which is horrible."

  • "This is a convenient spot to have a working lunch as it's not too crowded or noisy. In Yorkville where there are many dining choices, I think this one tends to get overlooked. Food is simple but well done (love the tomoato soup!) and reasonably priced."
    Dined on 11/8/2012
  • "We arrived and were told there was no reservation. Fire alarm was going off at the time. We went elsewhere. Very disappointed."

  • "Great location for dinner after a movie. Excellent service, helpful advice about food and wines. Rigatoni and braised beef excellent and Matisse salad with grilled chicken delicious."

  • "We were seated too closely to the kitchen which is just hidden by a participation so it was noisy, not conducive to a business lunch."

  • "I was in town and booked at the last minute...My dinner was very well prepared. The sevice was lacking in I felt rushed and the place was empty. I would expect that a nice basket of bread with some balsamic and olive oil to start... not happening here... So all in all I would rate my experience as fair. Not over priced but if you expect to herd in a crowd on a saturday night have a reader board with specials and don't be so frumpy Toronto patron's I'm sure are like everywhere else ...they get board easily. Tyler home town Port Perry Ont."
