We went for a pre-theatre dinner. Upon arrival it was over 90 minutes before the theatre, and we told the waiter we had theatre tickets and he said we had plenty of time. Our appetizers took almost 25 minutes to come out. There were only 3 small shrimp in the shrimp cocktail for $17. Our main courses were slow to come out. I had the veal scallopini and it was very salty. With 30 minutes left before the theatre we asked the waiter if we had time for dessert and he said plenty of time. We ordered a piece of the banana chocolate cake to share - another 10 minutes. It was stale and we sent it back. Almost another 10 minutes for the waiter to bring a fresh piece. The restaurant has a large diverse menu, but they need to work on accommodating the pre-theatre crowd in this neighbourhood.
Good selection on menu including fixed price 3 course meal. we had a round table in a booth that was perfect for conversation during dinner. Service was attentive without being obtrusive.
Food and service was good. Strange seating and ambiance. Disappointed they said they weee not part of Mirvish discounts even though it was on the Mirvish list of restaurants.
Great food at great price and service was excellent. Location was so convenient for dining before the show(theatre) and have no trouble recommending it to friends and family.
Very nice welcome upon arrival. Server was courteous and attentive. Nice selection of items on the menu at very reasonable prices. I had the shrimp risotto which was excellent and an ample portion. My wife had chicken parm and thoroughly enjoyed. Ordered wine which was brought as requested with dinner. We were not rushed and would certainly go back again.
Pre-theatre dinner with friends. Excellent service and good.
Food was underwhelming
Service was good
What a pleasant surprise, greeted at the door by name for a reservation, booth for two seating, great wine list and very good food and presentation. Half a block from the Princess of Wales Theatre, this was perfect. Thank you for a memorable night.
Recently tried this restaurant for the first time and both I and my friend were very pleased. We were there for a pre-theater dinner, and both ordered from the prix-fixe menu. We both found the starter salad (sliced tomatoes with goat cheese & balsamic reduction) to be excellent, as well as the accompanying garlic bread. I had the stuffed chicken as my main, and ate every bite of food on the plate - simply outstanding! My friend had the main course pasta (vegetarian), and enjoyed it equally as much. The dessert (lemon-yogurt cake) was just okay, but by that point, we really didn't have room for much dessert. Great value for the money - we will be back.
Our first time there and were pleasantly surprised with the menu selection and the tasty flavours. Great location for the theatre district.
Been here many times. Great spot
Cafeteria style food no more and service much too speedy as if they wanted to clear the table for others and only 8 people in the restaurant at 8:30 pm.
Excellent meal and we very much enjoyed how quiet it was even tho it was nearly full!
Great service too, we will go back.
Excellent pre theatre dining. Service was outstanding.
Dinner selection was extensive and moderately priced. Recommend trying the house specialties like
An excellent experience and wonderful alternative to the many "big restaurant chains" - it's good to support independent businesses and these folks make it easy to want to.
Really good service, very friendly and efficient.
The salad and the pizza were very good. I did not enjoy as much the cannelloni but overall good experience.
We told the waiter we were going to the theater and he made sure we received our dishes in time.
Food was overall great. Definitely worth its value. Chicken parmesan was awesome and surf and turf was good. I asked for medium well but they made it well done. So ask for a lower cooking level to get what you really want. Besides that the steak was good and the shrimp was good. However the lobster was overcooked. Overall, it was great. I would definitely come back and try the other dishes.
Had an amazing time, with a small tasting menu I had a very good first experience, I will go back the squash soup was to die for
Wine Mark Ups were excessive , I would not recommend this venue to a friend
Great location for pre-theatre dinner with good prices and value for the area.
Lovely food, servers tried a bit too hard, tired decor.
Good choice before the theater or concert. Easy to get to, friendly staff, great food choices. Close to Roy Thompson Hall for the concerts.
Great evening. Great menu. Food was served hot. Nice wine list. Not very many there. I don’t know why. Just found out about this place this year. I will go again.
Three of four from our party ordered the $25 menu a prix fixe and were pleased with each of their selections and all three courses, generous and great value. I had the day's soup which was tasty and generous too, followed by veal piccata with generous assorted vegetables beautifully cooked. Veal was just a wee bit salty but not enough to complain. We were happy to help boost business after the King St traffic restrictions and confirmed business was definitely hurt.
Always excellent food. Good ambiance and service. Comfortable booths. Consistently well-maintained washroom facilities.
This was a family dinner and we all had the 3 course dinner with all different options. Not a long menu but we all tried different mains. Food was well prepared and presented and all dinners tasted great. Not a lot of quantity though. Otherwise, everything else was excellent. Service was exceptional.
Our server was very attentive and professional. Food was well presented appetizing. I like the fact that tables are not squished close together as in many other places.
Wonderful service and really nice selection of food. Would highly recommend!
It was my first visit and won't be my last. Really enjoyed the Antipasto as an app and the $25 3 course meal was a great value.
Plus, the Valpolicella was outstanding!
The food, service and ambience were great. Highly recommended.
The reviews of the place are accurate. We showed up Friday @ 8pm - there were maybe 10 other people in the restaurant. The food was decent but nothing to write home about. Service was as expected. Overall - nothing terrible and nothing phenomenal.
Pleasantly surprised and extremely impressed. Great food and great service.
Great food and service. We really enjoyed our meal!
Awesome food and service! Unbelievable price for what you get
Service was friendly. 25 fixed price dinner was a good value. They didn't take the tails off the shrimp in my rissoto and a friends spaghetti and mussels was served as a pile of spaghetti plopped on top of mussels still in there shell. Desserts were uninspired. If you want a throw back to late 60s, eatly 70s then it was okay.
We had a wonderful experience at your restaurant! The service was quick and friendly.. the menu was excellent too. We took advantage of the preset menu for 25 dollars. Our chicken dinner was yummy and my tomato salad was cold and fresh and delicious. Dessert choices were great too. I had the lemon cake and my husband had the Tiramisu.. both yummy. The ambiance was relaxing and beautiful with the Christmas tree, even down to the bathrooms which are very clean. Thanks for the positive dining experience. We will be back! It's a perfect spot pre-theatre..and symphony!
A group of five of us go for one another's birthday and Forget About It is our favourite venue. Food and service has always been excellent which keeps us going back. The round table booths are great for our small group.
This restaurant is an excellent choice for an evening get together or dinner prior to going to the theatre. The service is quick and attentive. The salads and pastas are expertly prepared. This King Street West business deserves more business than the small number of diners that there on my early evening prior to attending theatre. I definitely recommend the restaurant for service and value.
Our experience was wonderful! From the ambiance to the service and food! Our waiter jason was especially great for taking care of our large group of girls so well. We had a great time and enjoyed everything!
