Wonderful place! Good food, good service. You can actually have a conversation with your friends.

Great quiet spot for an early after-work glass of wine and tapas with a business colleague. We felt tucked away here -- and the food was excellent ... highly recommend the zucchini fritters! Will return as it's a great location for people coming from various parts of town, en route to other commitments.

Mesfin (sorry I think I spelt your name wrong) is amazing! He's been there for longer than I've been going to Matisse and I've been going to Matisse for over 20 years! Never had a bad meal and if Mesfin recommends something, it's definitely worth a try!

The food was great, but the service really was just okay: my guest and I often felt forgotten about and that we were being ignored, despite a not overly busy restaurant. It was an overall "just fine" experience, but given the abundance of great restaurants in the city, a "just fine" experience doesn't really cut it.

Came for Winterlicous. The menu was a good selection of different dishes. My soup,chicken and flourless chocolate cake were all well prepared. Our service was good and everything came on time.

Ordered from the winterlicious menu and the value was excellent. The service was outstanding the courses came in a timely manner and every bite was delicious. My steak was cooked to perfection and the flourless chocolate cake out of this world.

Not worth it for the money you spend. No ambience if you go out with friends, just a few tables and you feel you are in the middle of a train station

The lights were very bright and were reflecting off the window so caused a glare. Maybe if they were dimmed it would be better.

I have to say that when we first walked into the hotel we were disappointed that there was no festive decorations in the dining room or on the tables. However, this was forgiven when the food arrived. The traditional Christmas dinner was excellent and compliments to the Chef, kitchen staff and waitresses.

Pleasant lunch and food was tasty, but service was unusually slow, even allowing for the size of our group. Meal was expensive and I didn't appreciate not being asked before additional bottled water was brought to the table.

I booked a reservation for 14 people. It was a work lunch just so we could all get together before the holidays were over. They gave us this very private section; which was amazing! It was closed off from the other guests; which was great since we could still talk about work. The food was amazing and although the service was a bit slow overall it was a great first experience.

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.
