    Food: chicken 65, fries, sweet potato fries, fish tacos - all of these were good and inexpensive, you can have them as mains or share with friends Drink: hibiscus blush - looked prettier than it tasted, wasn’t a fan of it but would be interested in trying other drinks from the menu

    3 of us got lucky - booked a table the night before and the 6pm time slot just so happened to be available! For further context, 6pm was the only available time slot between 5pm and 8pm. We also live really close to Misty, so glad to finally give it a try! The dishes we ordered are 1) salmon salad 2) monk fish - mine! 3) steak. I absolutely enjoyed my monk fish and would consider it one of the best seafood dishes I've had. I did consult the other 2 on their meals, which were also enjoyable, but according to them, worth 4-star instead of 5-star. I would give my monk fish a 5-star rating, though. The drinks are SO EXPENSIVE (ranges between $19 to $25+) per glass of cocktail. Mine was Misty Dream ($19) and while it was tasty, most other places in downtown would offer something similar for less. This is why we don't think the value deserves a 5 but rather a 4.

    This place was INSANELY GOOD!! My boyfriend and I went here on a Friday Night, with a reservation for my birthday!! Everybody was super nice and the atmosphere was really nice, especially the lighting and decor!! Drinks were awesome, Food was great, we were even given a shot of their in house specialty.. don’t exactly know what the mix is as it’s a secret, but it tasted great :) They were also nice enough to give us a dessert for my birthday!! Overall our experience was AMAZING, will definitely being returning in the future!! Thanks for a great time :)

    The service was great and very friendly The cocktails are very good even the mocktail The food is very tasty, we had the monk fish it was so good and full of flavours !!! Highly recommend it We tried the chicken 65 as appetizer the crust was a bit too greasy making it hard to digest I will not re order this one. Great experience overall at a very approachable price for the quality! I will come back

    Last night was my second visit to Misty. The first visit was last September and I gave it 5stars the food and experience was excellent. Last night however was disappointing. I went there with a coworker and her opinion was the same as mine. We ordered the pineapple Mojito and a caesar. The caesar was the worst I’ve ever had. I would definitely recommend they learn how to make a decent one. The food was very bland. We ordered the chicken 65 which had no flavour. We asked for salt which made it a little bit better but I would not order it again. The oysters were really good and fresh but when I ordered 6, they only brought out 5 but thankfully the server noticed and went back to grab 1 more. Everything came out at different times. Next came the quinoa Salmon, which was good but the salmon was very plain. Probably just had salt and pepper on it. Then the fish and chicken tacos came out. I had the fish tacos the last time I was here and they were incredible. Big piece of fish and punched with flavour. This time it was so disappointing. The fish seemed like it was half of what they had the last time I was there and again just lacked flavour. The chicken taco was just meh and really spicy. Unfortunately this the food’s presentation looked really good but was definitely a catfish. I wouldn’t go back.

    Drinks were overpriced and small, but they were really good. The venue looked really nice but the seating was awful. I'm very upset because I feel the venue has a great deal of untapped potential.

    Was very disappointed about my experience at Misty - a very over hyped restaurant that I was excited to try! I made my reservation over a week prior for the latest time they had available - 8:15pm. Upon arriving to the restaurant, which had plenty of open tables, they went to seat us at a very small bar height table against a wall. I have a knee injury and it’s painful for me to sit on barstools, so I asked if we could sit in the main dining area at a standard height table. However they said that they were having a private event at 10pm in the main dining area, so if we sat there, we’d have to leave at 9:30, whereas the bar table, we could be there until 9:45. From the beginning that was annoying because we were rushed from the moment we sat down. Standard dining time is minimum 2 hours and had we known about the event, we would’ve come sooner. We ordered a bunch of small plates to share, and rather than staggering their arrival as any other restaurant would, they brought them all at once… to the smallest table in the entire world. We already felt cramped against the wall, and then had to navigate how to even put a drink down with all the food on the table. Despite saying we could be there til 9:45, at 9:00 they came by to take last call for food, so we had to order dessert when we had just gotten our mains. They then did last call for drinks at 9:15. We were two people at a tiny table, we weren’t interfering with them setting up for their event, we got a one hour rushed dining experience when we were hoping for a fun Friday night with lots of drinks. The food was ok, some things were good and some were strange, and the ambience was weird and felt like a cafeteria. It felt like they out all their investment in the one Instagram-worthy wall and didn’t care about guest experience. Not asking guests to leave when they’re spending money is #1 rule in hospitality, and all I remember from the evening. For all the TikTokers posting, I will be sharing my experience.

    Very IG friendly. Cute beginner’s brunch menu, very nice music on the playlist: Dolly Parton to Drake. Only qualm is, it’s an old building so the heat only goes so high in the winter. So prepare to bundle up while you eat and get a hot beverage too lol

    Ordered fish tacos, chicken tacos, fries and the Korean chicken. The entree I wanted contained nuts and they were unable to alter the dish to accommodate my food allergy. The food was mediocre at best but the fries were amazing! If I returned I would probably only order the French fries as everything else was basic and lacked flavour. The deconstructed cheese cake was disgusting although the berry purée included in the dish was delicious. The churros were undercooked and doughy on the inside. In regards to the atmosphere, the restaurant is cute but cold as it is very small and when the door opens the wind travels through the entire restaurant. Most guests were wearing their coats while eating. The decor in the restaurant was nice and our server was great!

    I went for a quick weeknight cocktail and catch up here and was not expecting the outstanding level of service received. The ambiance was comfortable but not overwhelming. Eric welcomed us and took exceptional care of us while making drink appropriate drink recommendations and chatting once we found common ground in our work background! We even got to try a special curation of his which was delicious to say the least. The food (I'm italian and a pasta snob) was delicious I genuinely enjoyed every bite of my somehow vegan pasta (so creamy!) and the decontructed cheesecake was to die for. We can not wait to come back here!
