    I have enjoyed Brunch, Lunch and Dinner - and have never been disappointed. The service is always top notch; The food - Interesting and creative twists on traditional menu items - Hard to believe you are making healthy choices - the flavours are wonderful and the portion sizes are good And you cannot go wrong with the view - any time of the day and the year.

    Met an out of town guest fir dinner. This was a great way to show her the TO skyline at night. Brian and Susie, our servers, were appropiately attentive and efficient. The daily omelet, tomato soup and were delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Stratus is definitely a neighborhood gem. Great food and view without exorbitant prices.

    My husband and I came here for a nice dinner. Service was great, there was only 3 tables at the restaurant. Enjoyed the wine. Food was not super spectacular, but passable! It was more enjoyable because of the ambiance!

    Try to eat lunch later - say 1 pm as the noise from noon to 1 pm is very high. Mains were great, lobster excellent choice and so was the salmon. Desserts a disappointment. Mark's iced tea specials a real treat.

    Took a customer to Stratus. The service is impeccable and the view is quite nice over looking the Lake and the airport. Menu is not overwhelming if not a little sparse. Very convenient for financial services customers and those who are downtown.

    Cool atmosphere with a nice view. Very loud with the after work crowd as the bar was busy and there was a live band, but eventually by about 7 the bar scene cleared out. Food and service was good, was impressed with the free ordourves and extended happy hour pricing. Would go back.

    Looking over the Toronto skyline and the lake is only part of what makes Stratus so great. The fresh fish of the day and the amazing smoked salmon caesar we're delicious.

    The view is wonderful. I took my sister-in-law there for lunch on her birthday. The mushroom soup was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately my hamburger was very overcooked. She enjoyed the Indian chicken but mentioned that it was a bit overcooked too. The service was great. I would definitely go there again and give them another chance.

    The food was ok. My girlriends and I was surprised by how the ladies washroom located. Very uncomfortable The washroom is connected to the fitness club changing room. As soon as we walked in we saw a people walking around and some of them were not fully dressed. They should have a separate washroom for the restuarant patrons.

    The food on valentines day was amazing. Delicious and well thought out. Catered well to an allergy my girlfriend has. The service was not great though. They needed more staff on that evening, as we would be waiting quite a while with empty plates or no service. After our main course, our empty plates sat on our table for 5 minutes. When desert was ready, it was dropped on our table in haste, and the desert for my girlfriend wasn't the right one. Only 5 minutes later did the waitress notice the error. The waitress was nice, but she had too many tables to attend to. Ordered wine that never showed up to the table as well. Overall, the service was not great, and for 90$ a seat, I was hoping it would be much better.

    The Stratus offered a stunning view. The ambience and service were excellent. We tried the buttered chicken which was supposed to be their specialty. It was tasty, but a little too salty for us. I would not order it again. I did frequent the restaurant on a busier night and the service was excellent and so was the steak, rapini and sweet potatoe fries. The wine was also excellent.

    I'll definitely be back to entertain customers. Nice atmosphere, view and service. My only negative comment is that the washrooms were not equally nice considering the high-end feel of the venue. I chalked it up to incomplete renovations. It's a small thing but an important thing - women like a nice washroom when at a nice restaurant!

    The food was very tasty, well presented - but the view of the city and the service from your staff were the stars of my lunch. I was even introduced a new version if a Manhattan by my new friend Chris - which is good incentive to want to return in its own right.

    We were lucky enough to enjoy Stratus the first night it re-opened and what an amazing refreshed look. The food was amazing (as usual) and the view from the 36th floor was epic. The new ambiance enhances the view of the city and harbour.
