  • Excellent Summerlicious menu

    Dined on 7/18/2014
    Went with a group but have also tried half a dozen other Summerlicious places, and this was one to go back to. Yes it was one of the more expensive menus ($45) but was also the tastiest food we had and most came from their regular menu. Between us we trried everything and quality and taste were really good - lots of swapping went on. Even at $45 was excellent value. Did what few other places were able to do and ensure we go back and sample more when Summerlicious is over.

    We really enjoyed dining at Tundra. The food was incredible and the service very good. It was our anniversary and expected a bit extra however only received happy anniversary in chocolate on my dessert - no free dessert or a flower or something. Other than that the experience was outstanding!!!!

    We were greeted politely upon arrival, and seated immediately. The table staff was attentive and not over-bearing at all. We were there mid-week for dinner, and were drawn to Tundra for a price fix menu. The options and choices on the menu had much to choose from. The food was served promptly as well. Overall, the night was good. No real highlights, so would say it was very good, but nothing stood out to much from the food.

    I was very pleased with the pre-ballet pre-fixe dinner available. Good value and good food. I was disappointed with the service. Although competency was not an issue, there was no smile or personal touch from the waiter- just robotic service. Also, he assured me that my ballet discount would be included but he forgot and I had to remind him at the end of the meal (which I did not want to do in front of my guest).

    My wife and I absolutely enjoyed our dinner at Tundra. Service from both Neaz (server) and Teresa (hostess) were outstanding as they were genuinely interested in making the dining experience the best it can be. They succeeded in every possible way. The food was impeccable. We had the black cod dish and it was like nothing we've ever had before. We highly recommend Tundra. Great job to the entire Tundra team.

    Holy mackerel! What an ordinary non-descript fish! But it is one of the few that can be fished sustainably. Tundra chefs turn it into a delight. I was amazed.Food presented well and hot! Lovely calm ambience. Staff could be trained a bit more about their menu items.

    I enjoyed my pre-opera dinner at Tundra, with high quality food, good ambiance, and proximity to the Four Seasons Centre. The food was delicious, and reasonably priced. I also liked that the portions are not ridiculously sized, either too large or small. The service was quick, but they were not trying to rush you out the door.

    Good place to go at this time. Good service. Arctic char on the fixe prix menu worth having but adding a rice or potato to the plate would have been nice. Salad excellent. We asked for a particular wine and got the most costly one, not the house offering as we'd expected so this needs to stated clearly when ordering.

    Our expectations of meals at upper-end mainstream hotel chains is"pretty good." What the Tundra offers is actually excellent food, with waiters who get the help you ask roe in wines, with service that is attentive and never hurried, with food that is delicious and beautifully served (my trout, my partner's game hen). Menu doesn't meet vegan needs, but wait staff very helpful in making it happen, I think.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/10/2014
    It is easy to forget that you are in the lobby of a hotel once you are seated in the restaurant, as it is suitably screened from the reception area. The high ceiling makes it feel spacious, yet quiet. The decor is modern and comfortable, with trendy table runners doubling as placemats. The menu is a bit pricey, and the portions rather small, but the food is beautifully presented. The Winterlicious trio was good value and very satisfying (squash soup, seared trout, cheesecake). My dining companion had a lovely open faced sandwich, with a disappointing side of potato chips. The service was attentive without being intrusive. This is a suitable spot for an unimportant business lunch.

    Dined on 2/8/2014
    My husband and I went to the restaurant as part of the Winterlicious promotion. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. However, what really annoyed us was that we were not provided the information when we came in that the restaurant did not have debit; we were just informed when we received out bill. Luckily, I had my credit card on me, but what if I had not had it one me; then we would not have been able to pay for our meal as my husband and I did not have enough cash on us. My suggestion would be to simply have a sign at the front, indicating what the restaurant accepts as payment OR ensure that your servers advice the guest the moment they sit; that way guests can get cash if required.

    I enjoyed the last year's food better at this restaurant. My party was three, so we tried all the different menus they had for this Winterlicious and shared them. All the foods were nothing to excite about. About everything was the same taste, there is no surprise at all. It's boring for me.I'm not saying they were bad but I wouldn't recommend this place to those who are looking for Grade A.

    We went for an anniversary lunch, which I enjoyed more than my partner, but the server was pretty much frowning the whole time and looked as if he didn't really want to be there. The hostesses were very friendly and attentive, however. My trout was good, but I would have enjoyed my partner's beef cheeks with polenta and brussels sprouts more. The french vanilla creme brûlée was a nice finish, but we waited a bit longer than necessary for accompanying tea and coffee, especially considering the restaurant was near empty. All in all, I would return, for the good local food choices and the very stylish, warm ambiance.

    While staying at the Hilton, went to the bar to have a drink. Had a look at the Tundra menu and was so impressed I cancelled a reservation I had elsewhere. Quail appetizer was very good and I experienced new flavours. Pumpkin gnocchi was amazing (I typically avoid gnocchi but was intrigued by the description on the menu). BRAVO TUNDRA!!

    I know that this isn't always a bad thing but in this case we visited this restaurant because there was a birthday and we were hoping for something that was a bit more unique or surprising. I had ordered a chili rubbed steak which had an unexpected curry taste that felt didn't compliment the dish at all. I was underwhelmed by all the three course and although I wouldn't say the food is horrible it wasn't worth the price point. Sorry Tundra.
