Lee Ratings and Reviews
The food is absolutely delicious! Asian influences yet so much more. The portions were bigger than I expected. Lovely ambience, the place seems to glow. Very cozy on a winter evening. And the food!!
This would be a great place to go for a Special Occasion but why wait. Go everyday if you can. It’s worth it.
The service was great. I really didn’t like the wine they brought me and the waiter went back and asked the chef what he would recommend based on the reason why I didn’t like the wine. The food with timely and delicious. We followed the waiter’s suggestion of the slaw + 2 dishes and I’m so glad we did because we were full by the end of 3 dishes. Every dish is very unique here. We got the slaw, poached lobster and shrimp ravioli, and cheeseburger spring rolls. I can’t wait to come here again and try their other dishes!
Trendy place with a good decor. The food was very good and different which I liked. Glad we went to see what all the fuss is about. A bit overpriced in my opinion for what it is. The seating is way too close to one another. I was uncomfortable having a private conversation because we were SO close to the next table.
My partner and I are foodies and love Susur Lee so it was a treat to go to his restaurantto celebrate a birthday. We had the tasting menu for two, which is 8 delicious 'surprise' courses and a cart special drink. The service was perfect. Our waiter, Sam, was really professional and great. The food was really fancy and amazing. Lots of things I've never tried before and the plating was beautiful.
I had my hopes up as it looked like a great place and I have visited once before during winterlicious and it wasn’t bad. Our server had attitude, huge waits to get our food, bill and drinks. Worst of all our so called top chef Winning dish was not that great. A lack of mouth watering flavours. But hey maybe that’s bc all our meals arrived cold..... yuck!!!
Guess I’m not recommending this place ever
This was our second time at Lee and, just like the first time, we were not disappointed! The food is incredible! We had the Singapore Slaw (a dish they are famous for) again and this time tried the Luckee Shrimp and the Slow Braised beef. It was outstanding! Service is always great too. Very knowledgeable staff and they always make great recommendations. For a party of two, ordering three sharing plates is more then enough!!! We will be back!
Slaw was amazing as always. Service was surprisingly off. Had first two courses immediately and on top of each other - very rushed. Then waited 30 minutes for 3rd and after another 45 offered to pay (for all courses) so we could leave. Server insisted on sending to go even though we explained we were in a hotel. Check came with no acknowledgement of issues. Chalking it up to a rough night as usually Lee is one of my favorite Toronto restaurants.
As always the food was amazing. Susur was gracious and a real delight to speak to and the drinks and wine were wonderful. Our waitress had very bad timing and was awkward but it could have been a newness factor. That 19 ingredient salad is ridiculous (ridiculously good) and I️ might be addicted to the Cheung Fun. I’m looking for a help group as we speak.
We had a really good meal on Tuesday Nov 20th. The Singapore Slaw was really well balanced and a good starter for the meal. We also had the grilled octopus and the Top Chef Curry Chicken - both were really good. We had the "Tong Yuen" dish for dessert, a really smart spin on a traditional Chinese dessert. The service was great, our server Sam was very attentive and genuine. The only one thing if I need to be picky is that our wine (a sav. Blanc and a Pinot noir were just ok. For $21 / glass I expected to be better. Overall it was a great meal.
The waitress was lovely and the dining experience was great overall. However, my only complaint are the hostesses. No hello when I walked in, no smile. One actually looked angry. Upon leaving, same thing. No goodbye, no thank you for coming, etc. Each time there were no other customers around them, so they weren't busy.
Hostesses play a very important part of the whole restaurant experience. They're the first people we see and the last. Unfortunately they left a bad taste in my mouth and I won't rush back.
