Slow service and below-average food. The brunch price is on high end, $14 juice and $24 omelette(only come with some salad). Nothing special.

Was so excited to go here having passed by many times. Unfortunately the service was very slow and the burger had the weirdest taste. My guest enjoyed her fish. For the price i would say it was not worth it.

Our server Chad was fantastic at explaining 1 Kitchen’s philosophy. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The portions were plentiful, flavour on point, and everything was quite light. It’s a great destination if you don’t want to have a very heavy meal but still want to enjoy dining out. The pamplemousse drink was quite good. The corn soup is so delicious. It’s an excellent soup for a chilly day. We really enjoyed our dinner here.

Horrible experience! My boyfriend found a long black hair in his food 😤 And the cheesecake was frozen. They did still charge us the full price. It was pretty expensive even for King west considering how bad it was.
Worst experience I ever had in Toronto.

Do not recommend at all!

I booked a reservation online and upon entering the restaurant I was told my table wasn’t ready and I would have to wait for a table or sit at the bar and wait. I was told the reasoning for this wait was that” other patrons were staying longer then expected.” Food was mediocre for brunch and high prices. The restaurant was very loud and busy. Overall an okay experience I was expecting better.

If you want a good Lunch place, 1 Kitchen would be a good choice. If your looking for a classy restaurant compared to places like Alo, George, TOCA by the Riz Carlton, or any high dining restaurant for dinner, I would suggest spending your money on the other places. 1 Kitchen is just slightly worse in all regards when compared to a high class restaurant.

The food: Again, slightly worse in regards when compared to a higher class restaurant. The flavors are well done, but nothing to be WOW'd by. We had a ordered the lamb for 45$, it was ordered medium rare and came out like it was just butchered, the cut of lamb was also extremely fatty. Our server was however very nice and accommodating and the kitchen remade the lamb. The second time the lamb came out, it was prefect, a good Medium Rare, the cut of meat was great with little to no fat and the taste was amazing. For a place of this caliber I would expect them to make it right the first time.

1 Kitchen's cost would make it seem like it would be a first class restaurant, but with out the first class taste, environment, service and food. Its more of a fancy road side, slightly over-priced restaurant that will cater more towards the younger with money to spend.

Our server was great though.

It was loud in there we barely could hear our waitress talking beside us. The food options are great for lunch and brunch/breakfast but I wouldn't say it was satisfactory for dinner. The online menu was hard to manage as the way it's set up is annoying with the drop downs, just our personal option. We got a lot of sharing plates 🍽 which was nice but I felt they rushed us eating as they kept checking in on us and taking away even when we had food left and we were picking at it as we were catching up talking.

Thank you for awesome food and latte, being in convenient location, being mindful about sustainability and opening up early (I start work at 8:00 am and there are not too many places that open before that time!).

We ordered the Mushroom Tartine, and was surprised on the size (value) and that it was served cold. Perhaps we had different expectations, but it didn't live up to what we had wanted to enjoy.

Other than that, our morning meal was delicious and service was great as we had a long "business meeting".

This past Sunday, we got together for a brunch for a friend’s birthday.

Service was exceptional and everything we ordered absolutely delicious. When my friend accidentally spilled a drink on me, we received a free one on the house!

The only thing that didn’t make this brunch absolutely perfect was ridiculous heat outside - we had to leave pretty quickly as it was impossible to sit in the sun.

Hoping to be back soon though in cooler September weather and can’t wait for Casa Madeira and rooftop pation to open!

Food is very subpar.. for the expensive prices ($20 cocktails) it does not live up to boutique hotel expectations. They rang in orders wrong, long wait times, didn’t adhere to food requests… just overall not worth the hype. The brunch was very bland, eggs were unsalted and slightly burnt, zero flavour, salad was drenched in dressing which caused the leaves to be soggy. I wanted to like this place so badly because the ambience is actually super cute and has a good vibe. Servers were friendly but since it’s a new restaurant maybe still figuring things out. Once they get the kinks ironed out, I’m sure it’ll be a better experience. The lobby bar on the other hand is amazing.. definitely will be one of my regular go to spots and the bartenders are amazing.
