We enjoyed our visit and the food was good overall. I would have to say however that the burger I ordered was far below the standard I have come to expect at black and blue. I have had it downstairs several times and never been disappointed. The one I had on the roof was overcooked and came with a basic bun vs. the brioche noted on the menu. I hope this was a one time experience and that next time it will live up to my expectations.

We actually ate at Hidden
We actually ate at Hidden twice that day. The first meal was brunch and my husband had Frenchie's Breakfast Poutine - he said it was delicious! Our server was Jesse and he was so professional, attentive and friendly. Our second meal was dinner with another couple. My husband ordered the Lobster poutine - very rich but very delicious! I ordered the grilled calamari from the Healthy Bites menu and also the sesame crusted scallops. The scallops were done just right, but I wasn't a fan of the carrot puree. Our server for dinner was Justin, and again, very friendly, professional and attentive. I do think that the decor in the room is a bit tired looking and could use some freshening up, but again, we always enjoy our meals at Hidden.

Quiet. at times a bit loud, casual resort feel. Went with my gf and found it a perfect spot to sit, eat, and enjoy eachothers company without any intrusions. There was an Ooops moment when some red wine drops fell from the bottom of the glass on my white Armani T-shirt but it was quickly taken care of by the waiter and manager and we were not charged for the sangria beverages. Calm, assertive, and courteous the manager applied gentle soap to the chemise and the stain quickly disappeared and then proceeded to blow dry my shirt . Now that is what I call dedication and service. and all done with a smile and humour. The cost of the meal : calamari, sushi, and salad with bottle of wine was quite resaonable. Well worth the savoie.

My neighborhood favourite!
A great place to enjoy some tapas to share, and a welcome alternative to the mainly fast food and pub options in the area. Everything is usually beautifully presented, and pretty darn tasty! On this visit, particularly enjoyed the beet and pea shoot salad. My only hesitation in recommending this place is the pricing is a bit on the high side, as is often the case with restaurants within hotels.

It seemed like I was eating food from a professional chef who I imagined was on TV winning contests for their creative and yummy dishes. There were so many interesting flavors,even just in one dish. Exeptional.

Hidden Away but Delicious Menu Item
My wife and I made a visit to the Hidden Tasting Bar and Lounge to redeem our Social Shopper voucher. The place was so hidden that we had to ask the concierge at the hotel where exactly it was. We had previewed the menu so we knew what to order. Nonetheless, the menu provided an added bonus - a low-cal section. We ordered the crab cakes, the popcorn shrimp, the crispy calimari, the fish on lettuce tacos (low cal menu) and, to top off an already rich'n greasy nite, the lobster poutine. Talk about gorging on grease!! But, it was worth the pain. Flavourful and well cooked. The fish tacos were a zesty delight. The lobster poutine was excellent. The other items on the menu looked oh so good, too.

Options not available
Was a little disappointed when 1) the wine I ordered from the menu wasn't available, 2) the beer my husband ordered wasn't available and 3) the sugar free dessert option shown on the menu was no longer offered. Apart from that though the food and service were great.

Great place for shared plates
We enjoyed our meal here. The three of us shared everything and it was all good. I especially enjoyed the healthy options on the fitness menu.

Surprising in a good way
Upon arrival, I was surprised to find this restaurant/bar in the lobby of the Westin Hotel, and my expectations went down accordingly. As it turns out, the online menu (that influenced our choosing this place) lived up to its expectations! The lobster poutine was OUTSTANDING, the chicken entree was flavorful and plentiful. We were disappointed by the times unavailable that were indicate of of a hotel restaurant on a Sunday night, and the fact that we were sat upfront next to the bar instead of in the back away from the hotel lobby, but overall this place had good food, ok service, and was a nice surprise!

Trustworthy and responsive
Business lunch. With my many food allergies, I resign myself to nibbling gingerly on lettuce at these lunches. Here though our server Deborah took great care to ensure that my meal was allergen free for me. Their delightful sounding salmon with crab and white bean became steamed spinach and broccolini with wild salmon fillet over vegetables, olive oil and lemon. No other embellishments. But this lunch was perfect! Fresh, simple and safe. My guest had a beautifully presented tuna tartare with huge yam chips. Thank you Westin. I knew I could count on you.

Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal, although fish tacos were a little too small. Restaurant wasn't busy and service was good. A few of the folks been here before for retirements etc. - so good choice.
