    Food was above average but the price was high but considering the location there is not much you can do. The company with me is what made the meal, not the food or the atmosphere. 200 for 1 child and 1 adult, including half a bottle of wine with tip 240. I think the to average person that would be a lot, not meaning to offend anyone by that comment

    For my spouse's birthday,the Plantinum Club went out of their way to make it a memoranble night, great steaks as usual, just the way we wanted, attentive service from the waiter, sommelier and staff. They added several special touches which really stood out, including playing along with a few tricks and inserting a treat!

    I haven't been there often, but I am always amazed that you can have dinner, go watch part of the game, and have desert & coffee waiting for you when you return. Burger was great. My wife's steak was superb. We would go again if we can get the right tickets.

    Went to the Platinum Club before a Raptors game. Atmosphere was great. Very attentive service from our waitress (Vicky) and the sommelier. We had the fish special, the strip loin and the lobster pasta. All were very good. Had a pinot noir from Argentina which turned out to be pretty good. The wine list is extensive though on the pricey side. Prices are high as you would expect from a place like this. We had a great time.

    Best restaurant in the ACC. So convenient. Great wines. You really can't go wrong. The food is great, but the prices are quite high. Love the chicken, the lamb, and the daily fish dishes. I don't eat beef at all. I enjoy dining here before Raptor games and will continue to do so.

    We were passing thru Toronto on our way to Niagara Falls for a conference. We wanted to see the Raptors play, so we bought tickets on line. Ticket said "access to the Platinum Club". Not knowing what we were getting in to,I booked for pre game food. We were most pleased with the atmosphere the quality of the food and wine. The sommelier was most knowledgeable and suggested a Pino Grigio that was one of the finest we have had. The service was unreal, very knowledgeable staff. The table was ours for the night. At half time another glass of wine and a fine single malt was waiting. Enjoyed every minute, would certainly return when ever back in TO.

    We had Raptor tickets that allowed us access so we made a reservation. This was our first time. On the pricey side, but everything at the ACC is. We were able to keep our table for the entire game. I even think we could have stayed afterwards for drinks. Food was good, good selection, large wine list. We even went back at half time for coffee & desert. We left our coats at the table. Very good evening. We are going again the next time we have tickets that give us access. I recently had shoulder surgery. They gave us a table for 4 when it was just the 2 of us. The extra room was just what I needed.

    I had requested in the original email and a phone call to be seated at the bar ; but, although re-assured there was no placed reserved - upon arrival I was told they didn't reserve the bar seats at the maître d station! it was opaque to me what the correct procedure would have been. I was told by the bartenders that next time I should just text them directly! So all worked out but no thanks to the opentable reservation system or phone line.

    Who knew?! I've been to a few sporting events in my life time, and always found them good but lacking some what. I took my wife for lunch/brunch at the Platinum club lounge and sat in the dining room. It was a great experience from start to finish, I could have stayed there for dinner after the game. To start, the service was impeccable. To have a fine dining resturant in the ACC, with a laid back feel, with (again) great service was like having 2 great experiences in one, a basketball game and a great meal experience. As a first time diner there they made us feel very welcome. Did you know that your table "is" your table for the whole game?! That's insane and makes you very special.

    The food is over priced and not even that good for what you get. The cheese platter is a joke and if you don't have a fat expense account, don't bother because they won't come around and ask you if you want another glass of wine anyways! I was shocked at the prices as the food was not worth the price tag. Left with a bad taste in my mouth.

    This is not for the faint of wallet - but whomever makes a reservation at the upscale restaurant at a sporting event shouldn't be surprised. The said, the service is always consummate with that cost, and I've always had great meals. Yes, there is the natural 20% incremental prices given the location but I've never felt it wasn't worth it. If you love going to the game and love a great meal experience, then I wouldn't hesitate. Splurge.

    We visited Platinum Club prior to the Leafs game on Nov 16. Food was well prepared. Service was excellent. Wine list was extensive. I like the fact that we could keep our table for the entire game. We can back to our table for the first intermission for dessert and coffee. Our guests (my largest client) loved the entire experience.

    The food was wonderful and wine list impressive with at least 30 nice bottles priced between $40-65 but the waiters (we had 2 serving us) should have told us the portions were so huge. We split the largest appetizer of calamari I've ever seen, and really had trouble eating our $37 burgers that were served with the most amazing hand cut fries. It's too bad we could only eat about 5 of them. The couple sitting next to us later said they knew better from previous visits; they split the app then split the main. The waiters would be wise to tell people how generous the portions are. I'd appreciate the honesty, probably would've ordered a more expensive wine and still been able to split a dessert and enjoy a coffee after the meal.

    What can you say....the hottest ticket in town and decent dining just steps from your seat. The service was good, but large groups with kids detract attention from staff, so we had some gaps. Food was also good which is a wonder given their operating restrictions - hurry up the game is starting or they're coming back at intermission. So here's the crazy thing - the wine list features an outstanding DRC section with rock-bottom prices while the rest of the wine list is very significantly marked-up for the Leaf Nation bourgeoisie. Crazy.

    We were excited about trying the Platnium Club. We were seated away from the crowd....so it wasn't very interesting. The food here is very expensive...for a starter, one glass of wine and a main it was over 100.00. A simple sauv blanc glass of white is 20.00. We ordered the ravioli and it was bland, dry and more like a perogie... The chicken was nice but at 33. I expected something elevated...not a meal I could make for $5. I thought this restaurant would be special and it would be a great place for pre-hockey, pre-basketball and pre-concert. I'm never going back. Go to Eleven instead.

    My online reservation, somehow it was missed or miss placed. After a 20 min wait (my word that I had a reservation was not enough) they stuck me and my 3 guests in the wine cooler room, where every 2 min someone would ask us to move so they can grab a bottle from the top rack. Having 2 clients with me, plus having front row seats at the game made this less than an impressive experience. Not sure how a reservation that is confirmed twice gets lost and why my guests had to be treated so poorly .
