REIGN is a Canadian brasserie with a traditional French touch. It’s a living celebration of the riches of Canada, and the essential restaurant in Toronto, with three dining experiences – a restaurant, bar and bakery.

REIGN serves inspired plates – built with fresh ingredients from across Canada, and finessed with French mastery. The dining and bar space is sophisticated with big-city flair and more than a hint of country nobility. You and your esteemed peers are most welcome here.

Dinner was wonderful…the quality was second to none…the attention to detail and the attention from the serving staff was also exemplary.
If you are into food and wine, you would really appreciate the experience.

My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at REIGN. The front-end staff were very remarkably friendly and were pleasant to speak with prior to seating. The dining area had a warm ambience with dim lighting (which complemented the dark accents perfectly) and peaceful instrumental music overhead. Our waiter greeted us warmly, engaged in light conversation, and made brilliant food and wine recommendations. The food itself was excellent - evidently fresh and of top quality - and was prepared exactly to our liking. While the service was slower than expected at times, we did appreciate the hospitality at REIGN and will most certainly visit again.

We enjoyed a gorgeous breakfast. The servers were very attentive, but not overly imposing for our business breakfast. The restaurant is setup for physical distancing inside so you have some privacy from other tables as well.

We had breakfast at Reign on the morning of our anniversary, and had a fantastic experience! Our waitress Marisa was very professional, attentive, and kind. The food was delicious, the menu was great, and the ambience was intimate and warm. Marisa gave us a great experience, and we are looking forward to coming back!

Best dinner experience, service and food were exceptional, both the restaurant and hotel manager came by to introduce themselves and make sure everything was above and beyond as well. The staff turned our special celebration into a flawless one! I can’t thank them enough for making our experience here so memorable.

We decided on a staycation for our anniversary and chose the Royal York Hotel. Typically we would have found a nearby restaurant, but this time decided on Reign since it was conveniently located in the hotel. When we made the reservation a quiet table was requested and provided. Our waiter was terrific, very attentive but yet gave us our privacy. The food was top notch, the Lobster pasta was perfect and will bring us back again. Thank for Reign and the Royal York Hotel for a very memorable stay.

Delicious food beautifully presented in an elegant atmosphere. So nice to find a restaurant where the background music is actually in the background and you can carry on a conversation without shouting at each other. It was a lovely evening.

Food was quite terrific, but was disappointed that the bar offerings were extremely limited ... no brandy alexander, no chocolate martini, no adventures in martinis ... so, the wine was good and other standard drinks fine, but we were hoping to have something more special for our meet-up with our friend the first time we were able to have such a gathering since covid began. The noise level was pretty discouraging, but the waiter moved us to a much quieter spot, which was most kind and accommodating and then all was well. Again, my vegetarian entree, my husband's salmon and our friends dinner were all excellent.

Our waitress name was Jen she was very pleasant. Michael, the restaurant Manager came over to introduce himself and ask if everything was okay and if we needed anything to let him know.
Everyone was very attentive and we really enjoyed the dinner and dessert it was fantastic. It was a very delightful evening and we will go back as it was such a wonderful experience as well, thank you Reign 😊

The ambiance was wonderful and the breakfast excellent. I had farmers breakfast and my daughter had the lemon pancakes. Both were great but the pancakes were exemplary.

Have the pancakes! I thought that the coffee was sub par. I wished that I had ordered a late as the coffee was so disappointing.

The service was fairly poor. Cutlery didn’t come until after the food arrived. Getting coffee refills required getting the attention of the waiter, which was harder than it sounds. While we were treated to a nice dessert for our anniversary, when we asked the waiter what we were eating it didn’t seem like he knew what he served us. Expected more from the Fairmont. We won’t be going back.

It was a last minute decision to have Brunch at Reign as we were on our way out of Toronto and checking out from the Fairmont, but we are so glad that we decided to dine here! We loved the ambiance and we were grateful that they were able to fit us in on a Sunday.

They didn't have a fully operational bar for brunch so the drinks were limited (they couldn't make Caesars). The food was delicious, prepared as ordered, and came out on time. The service was exceptional, our server was accommodating and very personable. The noise level was moderate. The pricing is on the higher end (as expected in a hotel lobby).
