Celebrated a birthday with my fiance and we really enjoyed the food, it was a great assortment of choices. I was a little upset as my waitress forgot my drink order alongside bringing my espresso very late as we had already finished our dessert.

All food are very well and professionally prepared and presented. Since we were there for Easter brunch, we would prefer to see more Easter theme in decoration and in food.

Great restaurant for pre-theatre!
Toca Restaurant was amazing - they have a pre-theatre dinner menu however I ordered the scallops and there was no issue with time and it was so worth it. You have to try the Planet dessert for all you chocolate lovers.

Outstanding Food & Service
We had the best evening at TOCA. Our server Jacqueline was very friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make our evening enjoyable. The food was delicious!!!!!! I would highly recommend tastings from The Cheese Cave. Unfortunately I was experiencing a headache and asked our server if there was a shop in the area where I could find some Tylenol or Advil. I was told that they would take care of it. Shortly thereafter the Manager came to our table to inform me that someone had been sent out to get me something. I was so impressed with the level of service. It is rare these days. I will absolutely return to TOCA and would highly recommend this restaurant.

I took my boyfriend out to dinner for his 29th birthday. We climbed the stairs up to Toca inside the Ritz Carlton Toronto and were lead through the beautiful dining room to our table. We sat right beside a glassed in cheese room placed in the center of the restaurant (nice touch!). We are both chefs ourselves and are always very critical of service and food. After choosing from a very large selection of wines we ordered truffle fries and cheese croquets to start. My boyfriend absolutely loved the truffles fries, such a simple and delicious idea! We both had the cavaletti pasta for a main, and a "Happy Birthday" creme brulee was brought to us to finish off a great night out! The only issue we had was the loud business man next to us.

Excellent brunch expérience
I went to TOCA for Mother's Day brunch. We were a party of three, including my 5-year old son. The brunch was amazing, refined, had a lot of variety and very creative. Aside from the usual items (still beautifully made), there was a complete seafood bar, a great strawberry gazpacho, a crêpe station not to mention the room dedicated to desserts. The food from chef Zitouni is remarkable. I strongly recommend the brunch (every Sunday).

Toca is always great, the
Toca is always great, the service there, Ritz trained is unlike anything else. The food is really good, everyone enjoyed their meals and not one person in our group ordered the same thing. I would have to give honorable mention to the filet, with a side of peppercorn sauce, so much flavor and done to perfection. The person that ordered the sea bass felt that the foams and reductions added too much complexity to it, wasn't their thing as they love the pure taste of fresh fish. This place is totally amazing and one of our favorite places in Toronto. By the way, pricing was $100.00 per person that with a $100 bottle of wine, appetizer for everyone, main and desert. Totally in line with some of the competition in Toronto.

This was our second time having brunch and we must say the selection is great, the service is outstanding, the receptionist, manager and server all 3 of them remembered us from the last time, very powerful and impressive. Hannan, the manager, Wendy were the three but we must say all of the staff is very courteous and efficient.

Father's Day Fun
My sister and i enjoyed a great Father's Day with our Dad at Toca. The Halibut croquettes were PERFECT. The Toca Reisling was deliciously not too sweet but not dry either. The Strawberry Parfait dessert was outstanding! All the mains were so good. We are definitely putting Toca on our Repeat Dining list.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Possible one of the best brunches that I've ever had! However, $79 for brunch is too much unless you're having many Mimosas.

We keep coming back
The entire process from getting out of the car entering the Restaurant, it is all handled by an excellent staff, the reception at the restaurant addresses you by name and makes sure you like your seating area. Throughout the brunch attention is paid to the food selections always being refreshed and restocked, the servers are outstanding. This time we had a gentlemen named Tomac looking after us. We also had the chance of meeting the General Manager of the Hotel, that is so fantastic that he is hands on.

Wonderfully romantic and tasty
My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic anniversary dinner at Toca, thanks in part to some wonderful touches the Toca hosts added when I gave them a heads up via the OpenTable reservation that it was our anniversary - including complementary sparkling wine when we arrived and a beautifully garnished vanilla crème brûlée dessert. The food was amazing as was the wine selection - we were very happy to enjoy a bottle of the best NZ pinot noir that I have been trying to find for awhile.

A place that makes you feel great
We have had brunch there at least 6 times, dinner once and must say the food is great but more important to us is the service is wonderful. Keep it up you on the right track

Perfect Sunday brunch
Food was fresh and nicely presented. They always restock food so it never looks empty. Our server Felix was really awesome, attentive and fold our napkins everytime we went to get food! Definitely a 5 star experience.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was incredible! Came out fast, well presented, and ontop of all tasted spectacular. I highly recommend the salmon tartare, it's presented on a thick bed of fresh guacamole with thin crackers to spread. Also the homemade pasta with creamy tomato sauce topped with ricotta, and the fillet mignon. I'm well convinced the rest of the menu is delicious as well! The servers were all extremely polite, helpful, and fast. I will most definitely be going back! What you pay for is what you receive.

A Beautiful Evening!
An absolutely spectacular dinner for my partner's birthday! The ambience was the right amount of romantic and intimate blended with sheer sophistication that was beautifully complemented with the friendliness of the service from the maître d', to the sommelier and our server. The food itself was fantastic, we started with the Fattoush Salad and Foie Gras and we each had Filet Mignon for our entrées - all of which was delicious, the Filet Mignon in particular! We also ordered a bottle of Jamet Syrah which as the sommelier informed us, was a very undervalued wine and a great choice! We ended our meal with a small tour of the cheese cave and selected three types to enjoy with our wine before dessert - a very rich Pistachio Crème Brulée.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was excellent from the beginning to the end!!

Amazing once in a lifetime dinner!
We were lucky enough to get a table during the visit from 2 Michelin Star Chef Oliver Glowing from Rome. The service was amazing and the food required that every bite be savored! One of the top 5 meals we've ever had and we've been to some of the best restaurants from New York City to Bora Bora!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Dining Experience!
Perfectly cooked fish & vegetables, sweet attentive service & a lovely atmosphere made this an excellent evening.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
Casually elegant feel to this place is complimented by a remarkably well trained staff, a pleasant surprise in Toronto. The food was very good although not inexpensive but given the total experience, a reasonable value.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The cheese cave. Oh My!
Michelin rates restaurants based on many criteria. One of those is "worth a detour" ( think that is one star). Well, the cheese cave here is unique. It is a chance to try some perfectly fresh and perfectly aged cheeses like no other restaurant I've been to. If you like cheese, ask and enjoy. They also offer a "cave tour" to try out many of these.
Oh, the food is also excellent, even though the overall feel is more "relaxed" than what one usually finds in a Ritz Carlton Hotel. Service is wonderful. This is my second time and certainly on my list every time I visit Toronto
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service is second to none!
I went to TOCA for the all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch and it was fantastic. The food selection was the most varied I've seen anywhere for a brunch menu and everything was of excellent quality and very fresh (the servers constantly replenished the food items and switched out any seafood that had been sitting out too long). But even better than the food was the service. From the minute we walked through the door to the minute we left, the staff bent over backwards to ensure that we were satisfied that day, even making us items that were off-the-menu. If only I could afford it, I'd go there every week!

Thoroughly pleased with Toca
Thoroughly pleased with Toca for a business lunch! This was my first visit. Our waiter was superb.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure
This was our second visit to Toca and it was as wonderful as our first. The food is always exquisite; the seared BC scallops were done to perfection. The"cheese cave" is always a highlight of our visit! If you love cheese, you NEED to go to Toca.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have dined in a lot of restaurants, but I must say that the quality of service at the Ritz was exeptional. Wendy and her assistants were there at the right time to remove the plates. The wait for the food was perfect. The service was provided with a real smile, rich or poor are treated the same. I received a good service the minute I stepped into the front door. Thank you.

Glam deliciousness at Ritz Carlton
Celebrated with friends for a glam breakfast (on a midweek) morning my birthday. We did the breakfast buffet and the options were plentiful and ranged from fruit to pastries to bacon...all delicious. The Chef brought me a sweet birthday.

Best brunch in Toronto
While TOCA is far from the biggest brunch buffet in Toronto and while the space is limited it is exactly that (exclusive) and the quality of the food that makes this by far the BEST brunch in town. If you are OK with the price (it’s expensive) and want perfect service, great food and great atmosphere – this is the place to go. The emphasis on quality and not quantity is evident in every dish, the presentation, and in the service.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent including choices from the cheese menu.
Server went out of his way to provide for shared dishes and a fabulous chocolate dessert.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We has a wonderful dinner and exceptional service! The beef tartar and the cheese selection was a definite hit. Would love to come back again.

Fantastic date night at Toca
My wife and I went to Toca for our first night out after our son was born and it was excellent. We let Taylor, their excellent Sommelier, take care of the wine selection and enjoyed truly phenomenal food. We ordered one item off-menu which they handled easily. The lobster pasta is excellent. I look forward to returning and sampling their wine selection (we had a concert to make which kept dinner shorter than we'd otherwise have liked). Toca is strongly recommended and is clearly better than most hotel restaurants, deserving to be a destination itself regardless of if you are at the ritz.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Spectacular every time!
The service is 5 star and then some. It is upscale, yet also kid friendly. My favourite restaurant in the city because of the stunning decor, impeccable service and delicious food.

A Pre - TSO Gem
We have been to TOCA on many occasions, often before a TSO performance. It has always been one of our favorites and seems to be getting even better. The food is imaginative and the service is friendly and helpful.
