Went for dinner with family and it’s my wife’s second visit. She wanted me to try out this new place. Unfortunately their bar tender is still not in so the drink menu is a disappointment and all sakes are full bottle so it’s very hard to order for two people. Decided on a beer but later realized they marked it up 3 times from LCBO pricing.

They do grilled meat well but the sushi/sashimi/dessert is just average with a high price tag. With so many other options in town, their food quality does not match with the price points.

Overall it seems to be an average izakaya (without drink menu!) with an updated reno. Most customers seem to be Asian who like to try nice looking things but not the food quality itself.

Definitely not returning.

PS. The washroom does not match the upstairs reno and price point of this place at all. It was so crammed!

Food great, presentation very good, a good choice and a nice mix of dishes. The Chilean sea bass was outstanding and well worth the visit.

In general the service was good. Waitress was friendly. However at some point of the dinner no one was taking away the dishes and topping the water.

Bar service was good, but when we were seated we waited for way too long and finally had to ask someone if we could get a server.
Sushi was quite good, but we didn’t order anything else because the wait was too much.

Service was amazing. All the staff were so friendly and very social with guests. The food was excellent and very fresh. The presentation was beautiful. The prices were fair for a higher end Japanese restaurant, but was totally worth it. I got the mojito and it was very tasty with a lot of mint. We didn’t end up getting any of the main dishes although we saw them leave the kitchen and all of them looked amazing. The sushi rolls were flavourful and the temaki is a must have. We also were celebrating a birthday and they provided a complimentary cheesecake! On our way out, the bartender got the door for us which I thought was a nice touch considering we weren’t paying an arm and a leg to eat there.

One of the best experiences we have had! Was a date night and from the moment we were welcomed by the host to the time we paid our bill, it was an amazing experience. Food was fantastic (try the hamachi truffle!) and so was the service (super friendly and helpful with the menu). Didn’t try to sell the expensive dishes as such but really advised on what’s the best! Will be back for sure 😊

Great food but it’s a busy place, didn’t get seated until 30 minutes after our reservation. Several menu items we were also there to try (e.g. Bone Marrow) was sold out. Service staff weren’t that responsive either and often brought us the wrong food. I would return again but not the greatest experience.

All the food was served fast and perfect temperature, kitchen staff was on point.

The cocktails were great! Their food however was overpriced for what they were. I got the wagyu beef and scallops, and they were both underwhelming. The scallops were over cooked, and the sauce had a strange after taste. I have had better steak at cheaper places

The food was amazing. We really enjoyed our appetizers. The tuna tataki, crab dumplings and shiso salmon were delicious. I loved the tuna the most. For main, we ordered the black cod and rib eye. The black cod was amazing! That was our favourite. The rib eye was tender and cooked nicely, however taste wise it was more on the bland side and the wasabi dressing had no wasabi taste. Overall it was really good and we would go back.

We wanted a nice restaurant with a menu with unique options and not an over crowding of people. The server and service was exceptional, and the food had smooth rich flavors. We will definitely be returning. With dishes that tasted so good, there was no need to order everything at once.

Outstanding food, well-executed and tastefully presented. Many authentic menu items you don’t normally find at Toronto’s Japanese restos.

Extremely friendly service. Gorgeous interior dining; pleasant patio.

TLDR: Food was great but not exceptional; possibly because everything was familiar to our palates. Interesting cocktails, but small selection.
We had: tuna tataki, tiger prawn tempura, Wagyu foie maki, sashimi, and the grilled pork ribs. Seems like they had issues with the grill since the ribs came out last and 20-30 min after everything else.
We were seated by the kitchen window, but it was noisy due to the chef yelling at servers and the smashing of the bell to call for service. Felt bad for them but they pulled through and managed to still provide great service. Cheers to them for doing their best and profusely apologizing.

The food was delicious and the service was attentive. I suppose it's not fair to rate them on ambiance since we ate on the patio, but the interior looks very nice from the outside. Also, you get the added bonus of live music from the Rex down the street! I would highly recommend the black cod from the grill section, and the chef's choice sashimi. Overall, however, the food was a bit pricy compared to other restaurants nearby that do similar food. I'm glad we went to experience it, but the final bill was enough to make me reconsider coming back again. Maybe once we can dine inside we'll try it again!

I love Japanese food! I thought I had tried the best of it in my travels. Muni Robata is the best in the business. They have nailed every aspect of the dining experience. The food was AMAZING! The flavours were perfectly matched. The presentation was gorgeous. My mouth is watering writing this review. They have an extensive Saki & cocktail list. The service was incredible. I highly recommend this dining experience. 5 stars all the way!
