Would have been better if the seating was mode spread out.
There was a group of 4 right beside our table so we didn’t feel like social distancing was being followed in that regard.

It was our first time and my children and I had a great experience. The food was more than sufficient. The atmosphere felt like I was in an expensive hotel. My server (I didn't get his name) was very polite. Overall experience was a 5 🌟. Would definitely 👍 be heading there again.

Food is nothing special the options are slim, it says there’s an outdoor terrace at this location but there isn’t. Really nothing special.

Service was at times slow, by once orders were placed, food and beverages arrived relatively quickly. Unfortunately, despite being requested the avocado sandwich wasn't done to accomodate vegan. The burger and the mushroom omelettes were both delicious. Specialty coffees were properly prepared. I was disappointed there was no freshly squeezed orange juice.

We had a great time! Food was delicious and service was fab. We were a group with 4 kids and our waitress really made sure we were confortable and attended to. I would definitely recommend Holts to my family and friends.

This is our go-to restaurant in Yorkdale mall. Intimate and relaxing, with a nicely balanced menu and thoughtful service. Took one star off as the music really doesn’t go with the atmosphere - a laid back jazz or similar would be much more pleasant during a meal. Otherwise, we love it.

Chic little spot to grab brunch in the mall. Prices are a bit higher than your typical breakfast spot but still reasonable. We went right at open on Sunday so the noise level wasn't loud. I did find it odd that they sat every new table directly beside one another when the whole other side of the cafe was open. It made for very tight walkways.

I would recommend this to friends, great food, excellent service, great atmosphere!

I went there with my boyfriend on the last day of Winterlicious. It seems that they have only one chef working on the meals because the speed was slow. The waiter was really nice. We’ve ordered a steak and a cod with a guacamole on the side. The main course was not good as expected. We liked the guacamole though.

I made a reservation for Winterlicious and it was an early valentines dinner for me and my fiance.

Unfortunately they did not allow us to order off the winterlicious menu because of the fact that we arrived after 7:30. My original reservation was at 7:15 however I did call at 7pm to let them know I would be late, closer to 7:40.

Overall, everything was ok, but I don't know if I would return due to the fact that I came here for a set menu and I didn't get that option. Also no one told me until we were seated. Therefore, I was disappointed.

The food and customer service was excellent.
Only complaint is with the chairs. The backrest is made out of thin leather giving very little back support. If had to roll up my ciat and put it behind my back in order to be comfortable.

The food and service were great. The server picked up on what was going on at the table and went above and beyond at the time of dessert. Hbd to someone at the table. Another person was asking about the meat option and the server took it upon themselves to bring it to the table so everyone can snack on. Was very good

The server was pleasant until she lied to us that her shift ended to get us out of there. Made us pay and then she kept working and serving new tables. Other than that, was a great experience!

Booked afternoon tea for some family time. The food was very good and a nice assortment- we particularly loved the jam and the truffle oil on the egg salad (delicious!). A good assortment of teas and the option of champagne. Colette hasn’t made significant changes to the decor of the space but they weren’t needed. The music was on the loud side and didn’t enhance the atmosphere.

Very underwhelming. Disappointed that only a small section of the restaurant was open. The room was very dark and there was little atmosphere. Scallops “main” was more of an appetizer. Cookie was overbaked. Very pricey for what you get.
