The food was excellent, presented creatively and the ambiance was fun and fresh.
They even had a live DJ in the lobby on a Thursday night.
Gave it that "happening place" appeal.
If I had one suggestion to offer, it would expand the menu options.
We all agreed there were not many Entrées to choose from.
Double the number. Otherwise, GREAT.

Atmosphere was a hotel restaurant, not anything to seek out. Food and wine selections were ok, (not special), quality of ingredients decent, but the TV's and noise and overall lack of ambiance are not something I seek in a dining experience.

We have been to this restaurant several times so we expected to have a great experience. Unfortunately our service was terrible. The waiter was abrupt and didn't listen to our orders and when he came back with the incorrect order he acted like it was our fault. I live very close to this restaurant but I'm not sure if I'll be going back.

I went with my partner for Summerlicious and was very impressed with the menu. Delicious food. Make sure to allot enough time as the service was a little slow but very pleasant and professional.

We arrived at 11:30 for lunch and no one was there. A good or bad sign? Good for us since we were promptly seated at one of the two tables for 2 overlooking Bloor St. Not a bad sign since around noon they filled up with what seemed a business crowd. We ordered from the Summerlicious menu: daily soup (Manhattan chowder) & fire roasted vegetable appetizers, saffron risotto & salmon entrees, macarons & mango sorbet for dessert. First, the food was very good and the service excellent. Second, two small menu clarifications would have helped. The Manhattan chowder wasn’t a seafood chowder – at least none that my wife found - although she hadn’t asked for specifics and assumed it was a seafood chowder. If she had known she would have ordered the garlic shrimp. The “roasted vegetable” is a salad, very good and I would have ordered it anyway. I can’t say much about the entrees other than everything was perfect. Same for the dessert, except I could have eaten two more bowls of mango sorbet AND a second plate of macarons – but the quantities were more than reasonable. We paired the food with two glasses of a light but still a little spicy Shiraz ($13 each, 9 oz). The décor is a classy modern but not particularly romantic, although someone could make it that, in the evening, without the business lunch crowd. All-in-all, good value for $23.

Service was OK. Server was polite but always in a hurry.Food tasted excellent but place was noisy,hard to carry on conversation.Was sitting at the entrance of the kitchen,in front of a service station.There were constant activities directly in front of us,not relaxing for the whole meal.Funny thing was, at that time the place was not full. We could have sat at other spots.????

The food was excellent. We were their as part of the Summerlicious event. Service was pleasant when the person was able to provide the service. Because we were their on Saturday at 2:30, there was one person, hosting, serving multiple tables, and handling the bar. I would say poor management. the food was excellent.

What a great find. Walk pass this place everyday and wasn't interested in trying it. Figured it was just another overpriced hotel restaurant. Decided to go here for summerlicious with a couple friends as it's right by work and was very pleasantly surprised. Had the pork belly to start, the coconut milk curry chickpea casserole as a main, and the creme brulee for dessert. Everything was absolutely delicious and the portions were perfect. Not as big as fast food but definitely the ridiculously tiny portions of a lot of "high end" restaurants. The food was flavourful but not overpowering. Perfect for a group of foodies and non-foodies alike to enjoy.

It was a business lunch. A colleague came early and wanted to order early but the waiter did not understand. This created a situation where everyone came to the table and was forced to order right away which was awkward. Food was good but portions are small given the cost.

In the very heart of chic Toronto, this hotel restaurant offers good food and a pleasant, quiet spot. Straightforward menu with something for every taste, mid-priced (not Subway but not Yorkville, either) and good service that pays attention to when you have to leave.
Tables are far enough apart you're not part of your neighbors' conversation.

We ate here because it was convenient, since we were staying at the hotel. What a mistake. The food was tasty, but the service was horrible. First, we sat for close to 10 minutes before anyone stopped by to take our drink order. The drinks came relatively quickly, so we gave them a pass. Then we ordered appetizers and dinner. We enjoyed our drinks and then the food came, but it was our main course (lamb was delicious) not the appetizers. We asked what was going on and the waiter said he forgot to enter the appetizers. I guess having 3 tables was a bit too much - that was the entire customer base. He actually suggested bringing the appetizers after dinner! And what did we get for our troubles, nothing.

We took a client to lunch there and we all really enjoyed our meals. There are quite a good number of interesting dishes on the menu, so kudos to the chef and the Marriott, for going above and beyond traditional hotel fare.

The only negative is that the decor is a little dated and needs a bit of an update. There are a lot of restaurants in this area and if it ware more of a destination, they would definitely increase their business.

They buffet was not in use and was empty so maybe it would be nice to have a screen in front of it as it spoils the ambience.
