    The chicken and lamb were so delicious and they should provide a ton more of the celeriac puree because that was incredible!

    This is a great spot that has been consistently good. One of the best burgers in the city IMO. Have been a few times for all meals and everyone has been very happy with their meals. Service is excellent! Dog friendly patio too!

    I booked 1 Kitchen to celebrate by Birthday on August 13 and from start to finish everything was great! I should add that I have some dietary restrictions and the chef has always been great about accommodating them. As you’ve guessed it’s not my first time 😉. I always get the seabass which was delicious! I love that they have great healthy options. I had the some green juice as well and members of my party enjoyed the dips with pita bread as well as the salad and seabass. For desert I had the apple crumble - delicious!!! I highly recommend for those who are health conscious. Hands down my go to spot!

    Best experience my partner and I have had in our years in Toronto. Service was amazing, server was very attentive, food came out on time, food was Amazing. Highly recommend 1Kitchen to anyone looking for a low/no waste kitchen. Drinks are super expensive but for a special occasion I think it’s fine.

    Loved this place! We got a bottle of local chardonnay that was wonderful. Started with the Kitchen Dips, a trio of chilled spreads with a generous supply of grilled pita and fresh veggies, including some heirloom varieties. For entrees, we had the smoked tofu with brussels sprouts and kale, and the pesto pasta with added grilled shrimp. Both dishes were thoughtfully presented and memorably good. Highly recommend this place!

    Being a hotel restaurant with appeal also to people not staying at the hotel, the food was good - this restaurant sources everything within 100km to support local produce, which I appreciate! The prices are a bit high in my opinion for the quality and taste of the food (burger and fries was around $28, and everything else was higher in price). The ambience was truly the best part, the decor is splendid and I loved the plants. Overall, it's a cute place to stop in, but I probably wouldn't return just for the food.

    We made the right choice to celebrate a birthday her this past Saturday night. We loved the decor and atmosphere, the food and drinks where excellent and best was the attentive and patience service Saveah (I apologize if I’ve misspelled that). They were fantastic! They are supported by Jessica who seemed to be a leader there. We will highly recommend and absolutely be back!

    We love coming here because it's very easy to park around One hotel. There's a big park where kids can play there first before we enter the restaurant. There's also street car right in front, and our son loves street car (keeps him entertained). The food and the services are great. We would definitely come here again.

    We all had variations of egg benedict from the Bruch menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Lovely upbeat atmosphere and good service. Prices were typical of downtown restaurants. Happy to eat there again if I'm in the area again.

    I have been coming to Toronto since the late 90s and over the years many places I loved have gone out of business so I tried something new. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, the service was quick and the food was amazing. They serve Fever Tree seltzer and tonic water and make amazing mixed drinks. My salad was one of the best I ever had. This is my new favorite place in Toronto.

    Father’s Day. Hostess was mediocre and not very accommodating. We had called about the menu prior to reservation and was told brunch and lunch wolf be available however when we arrived only the brunch menu was available. Order taken was wrong and we had to send the food back and compromise. Unfortunately, We won’t go back again.

    Love the restaurant and the food but it was too noisy. You have to scream to speak and was hard to listen to my friends. I think is the way the place was built, I don't think I'll come back.
