The restaurant confirmed my 10pm reservation using the open table app. The restaurant also closed at 10pm. Lol. My frustration when I arrived was something else.

The food was great. We had Steak and shrimp (Land and Sea ...) with wine, soup and dessert. Amanda was very professional, smiling and attentive. Unfortunately I will take my money elsewhere next time because the other host and servers in the restaurant did not bother at all. Too bad

We got 3 small shrimps opposite Instead of advertised giant prawn. Steak seemed to be smaller than 6 oz. veggies are also very small in portion. Bread becoming cheaper. They used to serve 3 different artisan bread. I have been coming to this restaurant for the past 3 years but I think it’s not worth to buy the promo from Wagjag. Also Red wine tastes no good anymore.

we enjoyed the set prix menu at the downtown restaurant and enjoyed our experience starting when we walked in and were greeted by the hostess. The service was prompt and the food was perfectly cooked. My husband's steak was a true rare and my butternut squash soup was seasoned beautifully with crème fraiche and a walnut crouton. We also enjoyed the pumpkin crème brule with fresh berries on top. Thank you to our servers Ronnie and Allen who were attentive, friendly and professional. Chef Kris came out to say hello and we enjoyed the entire dining experience. This review is also on trip advisor where I am a regular contributor.

Went to this restaurant during Summerlicious with four people. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The vegetarian spaghetti bolognese was delicious, as was the butternut squash soup, and the carrot cake was not too sweet and was to die for! would highly recommend

This was for Summerlicious for business. The food took a long time but the servers were attentive right after the food came. The dessert was the worse. It was like grocery bought cake that was frozen and defrosted then served with some jam on the side. My sandwich was lobster but I felt like it was artificial crab meat.

I would just like to conclude my experience by informing management how amazing our server was. Raj is an amazing people person with an outgoing personality, he made our experience warm and welcoming and ensured we had the best experience possible.

He has a passion for what he does and it's clearly visible. We will definitely be back!!!

Way to go Raj!!!

Sincerely,

The three women who attended July 10, at 12:30pm who all ordered the same meal( Grilled cheese Lobster Sandwich) !!

Service was good, but food was sub-par.

Buns served at start of meal tasted at least 2 days old; creme brûlée at end of meal didn't have a hard crust on top - tasted like it came out of the fridge.

Pasta dish and steak were fine but not great. Equivalent to East Side Marios.

Was there few years ago. Meal and service were excellent. Unfortunately, this time the food was not at par as before, seafood was not fresh, and service was slow. Restaurant was very noisy.. there was a birthday party in the restaurant... way too noisy. The party should have been in a separate room, and not in the same room as the restaurant guests. Was not a good experience this time. Don't think I'll be going back soon.

We had dinner here for our Anniversary. The restaurant was very quiet with very few clients (only a couple of tables on a Friday night at 7:00). So, I hope they manage to stay in business. Service was great - very attentive. Food was amazing. We had the 3-course dinner. I had acorn squash soup, pasta & creme brule. Hubbie had salad, steak/seafood and pear tostata. Portions were good, but we managed to eat almost everything because it was soooo tasty. We'll definitely return. Chef popped by our table for a chat, adding to our experience.

Because of the special traffic test project on King Street, it made getting to the restaurant difficult. The disabled access does not work until a staff member comes with a key and that
can be very very slow.

Great Value/Good Food We purchased a meal for two through Groupon. The menu selection was good, the food was nicely presented and delicious. There was a glass of wine included in the dinner special. Our server was attentive and professional. It was a return visit and a great way to end our theater outing. This is great value for the money but also really good food. It is within walking distance to Royal Alex. Will be sure to return.

This was a disappoint experience.
We sent back the calamari because it was burnt
the main course was overcooked as well.
They didn't have the dessert we ordered.
The server did his best to best, however service was slow because he was the only one working

Definitely not worth the money even as a Groupon Deal

The wait staff was kind and attentive as was the host - they were the best part and without them, this review would be a 1 star. Unfortunately the quality of the meal was just "meh" and no where worth the cost of the prix fix charged. Steaks were under cooked and overly doused with "sauce" to minimize the lack of quality. The "professionally paired wine" was horrible -
perhaps from a bottle that had been kept open too long. Not surprising as this place didn't have any people in it, so who knows how long it had been on the shelf open! Desserts were sub par and funny enough, they had "run out" of 2 of the 3 options - on a Saturday night and we were the ONLY ones in the restaurant for a 7pm reservation. We came on a promotion offer presumably trying to convert guests into advocates and repeat customers. Given our experience, we can neither recommend or will we return. This is unfortunate because the location is great, the restaurant has a decent atmosphere and decor and the wait staff did their best to make up for what the kitchen lacks. We honestly wish we could get our money back.

First of all, the restaurant is under the ground, so thumbs down for sure. Secondly, we were the only table in the restaurant on a Saturday evening, in the middle of summer! And that pretty much tells you everything! The only reason we went there was because I had a Groupon to redeem and unfortunately the restaurant refused to honor the face value. Very disappointing at service! I made reservation through Open Table and staff couldn't find us. We had to stand outside when nobody was in the restaurant. They could've let us sit down first!!! The food is tasty but pricey. It's in the hotel, so you are not only paying for food, but also paying for the hotel itself. I will never come back, nor do I recommend this place to anyone. There are so many restaurants in Toronto are way better than this one. The bill I paid is good enough to have a fabulous meal at Canoe, with a fantastic view.

We had reservations for 6:30 pm. and were running late. I called the restaurant and they were pleasant enough and said no problem. We arrived at about 7:00 and informed our waiter that we had show tickets for 8:00 pm. He took our order and brought our drinks in short time. The Bread was warm and was great with butter. The apps arrived very quickly and were very good. I had the strawberry and spinach salad asked to replace the goat cheese with feta and there was no problem at all. the apps were great. The waiter checked on us often and made sure the mains were ready as soon as we finished our apps. Unfortunately this is where the problem was; the mains were slightly overcooked for me and too overcooked for my lady. My steak was more on the medium/well than on a medium (I ate it) otherwise it tasted good. My lady's fish was too over cooked that she sent it back. They were very quick with the replacement and did not fuss at all; as a matter of fact, the chef came out to see us and apologized for the overcooked food. He even gave us some popcorn for the show (smart food). We made it to the show with time to spare.
