We had the most amazing experience . Josh our server very friendly and knowledgable of the menu and history of Akira Back . We met Sous chef Kim and answered all of our questions about the menu.
The attention to every detail with table maintenance was spot on and the food was well presented and simple . The food was delicious and fresh.
We will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends .
Thanks again for a memorable experience.

Interesting dishes, nicely decorated restaurant with good services.
Everything was great just like always
Dinner with friends.
We had made a reservation for 8 people at 7:30pm two weeks prior. When we arrived, the table was only made up for 6 and as a result the restaurant had to squeeze two more chairs on a very small table that meant we were almost sitting on top of one another. It took almost 45 mins to place an order for our appetizers and despite ordering our drinks straight away it took almost 20 mins for them to arrive. By the time our first appetizers arrived it had been almost and hour and a half after we arrived. Recognizing the delays and the how busy the restaurant was we also put an order in for our main course just after the appetizer order. We hadn't finished the appetizers before the main courses arrived so everything was piled up on the table - we had to go looking for a server to ask them to remove some of the empty plates. The food was delicious although the portion sizes were meagre given the prices of the dishes. We were over an hour and a half late for meeting friends so we decided to skip coffee etc. We did complain to the manager about the terrible service and to be fair he did compensate us for the wine on our bill.
I had heard so many good things about this restaurant so I was looking forward to celebrating our birthdays there as well as determining whether it was good enough to take some important clients there to dinner in the next few weeks - I must say that I left very disappointed at our overall experience even though the food was absolutely delicious.
Ordered the tasting menu with wine/sake pairings. I’ve tried many omakase and tasting menus around the city and abroad and this was underwhelming. Standout dishes were the short rib tacos and the fried fish. Lobster was dry and chewy. The drink pairings were minuscule and was left with no drinks in between dishes, other restaurants always top it up. Will not be going back to Back.
Wonderful food and atmosphere, with exceptional service
Amazing food! Great for a special occasion. A little on the pricey side but totally worth it.
The food is very good!!
Trendy and subtle at the same time, the food is amazing , the service is tremendous and it is the perfect spot for a special night out celebration or just a classy dressy evening with your friends. Every item we shared seemed to get better and our server guided us through the menu perfectly. It comes at a cost for sure but the quality of food with the experience left me more than satisfied and looking forward to my next visit!
Oh my god Akira Back had some of the most delicious dishes I’ve ever put in my mouth! The Tuna/Mushroom pizza is their signature dish and what stood out the most for us too. I found the truffle bombs tasted better deconstructed than having everything in one bite, but otherwise all of the seafood was super fresh and would love to come back here for a special occasion. Our bill for 2 people came out to over $120 so it is definitely more for a special occasion, but it was well worth it!
really good experience.
we tried omakase which is perfect.
Try using some real truffle instead of that synthetic flavouring in that truffle paste and oil. Very overpowering and gross. Also paying $62 for 4 tiny pieces of the most flavourless toro I’ve ever tasted is outrageous. If you’re charging those prices you better get some better ingredients. The only redeeming quality of the night was the service which was amazing.
Only issue is the dress code, states business casual and then you a see a bunch of millennials wearing track pants and running shoes etc. Which kind of brings the experience down a notch. Please respect the dress code or enforce it if you advertise it!!!
Food was exceptional. Service was superb. Who cares about the rest.
the best sushi i have ever eaten in my life
waiter was very knowledgable about where the fish came from
Exceeded my expectations! Every course that came out was better than the one before. We went with the server recommendations and they were perfect!
We came here for our wedding anniversary plus birthday date night and chose the tasting menu over some cocktails. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff was very friendly, attentive and professional. Chic downtown vibe in decor and music. We will definitely return!
I love the food quality and flavor but the portion is way too small with the given price. Service is good and reservation is easy.
Awesome staff were fantastic
Best Sushi in Toronto hands down!
Food is always exciting and different BUT on point
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody interested in unique food creations, beautiful presentation and exceptional service.
Everything was very good and only a couple of outstanding dishes and we ordered many - the hamachi appetizer was excellent as was the Unami which was actually outstanding . Salmon sashimi was delicious. Overall it was all very nice very tasty- was it unbelievable amazing ?no .was it very good absolutely. I would definitely go again to dine there
Way way overpriced for the portion size and quality of the food. Food was over-salted and the quality was mediocre. Lots of service people milling around but the service was not especially attentive.
Went here for a birthday, was very impressed with the food! Really good quality, smaller portions but worth it.
It’s a bit too dark and the noise level was pretty high that night.
Food was really good and service was very courteous. Will definately return.
Love the food here. The mushroom pizza & wagyu taco are my all time fav. AB is one of the best restaurants in Toronto!
Graham our server was amazing!! One of the best experiences
Delicious! Wonderful spot for a birthday dinner- very cool decor, ambiance and great service - the truffle bombs are a must!!
Amazing food, amazing service - the price is worth the food. Quiet and romantic. Definitely going again!!
