A great Valentines/Family Day get together, made outstanding by the terrific service and attention we received from our server, Ashley. A go-to for special occasions in our hood.

Absolutely beautiful view. Went for Valentine's day and I was a little nervous because of some poor reviews and I didn't know anyone who had gone. But our server was lovely, wish I got her name, the view of Toronto had me taking pictures, and the atmosphere was great. Food portions could've been a little bigger for sharing, at least what we got. But drinks were perfect and for a special night out, it was definitely worth it.

Drinks very good, one person got wings and they were fine. The place was quiet so they must have decided to close up. Only complaint would be that they decided to close early as the bar was quiet, we got a drinks order and 15 minutes later they turned the lights on and started cleaning up.

- Great ambiance, looking over the city
- Cocktail menu has a lot of variety
- Server was very patient and polite
- If you are only craving appetizers and drinks this is your place, I realized that dinner options are downstairs. But this doesn’t sway my positive feedback, we had a great time regardless.

Went on a very cold night and only 5 other tables were in there. We sat for 35 minutes after having water poured for us before we could order. Very handsome guy who poured our water comes over after those 35 minutes and says "everything okay here". We ask to order and order a bottle of wine, chicken wings, cheese plate and a kale salad. Chicken wings and salad come out right away - we eat and wait another 30 minutes before the same guy comes back and asks " can I get you dessert". We are still waiting on our cheese plate - "oh, let's see what happened with that". 15 mins later he comes back with Cheese Plate.

Food was fine, place was beautiful, service was dumb.

I was disappointed by the menu and our initial seating arrangements. Having made reservations two weeks prior, our expectation was to be seated at a table. We came for the view and the Broadview burger, neither of which were offered. We had to move three times within the hotel restaurants to find a menu selection that satisfied us. Probably will not visit again.

A stunning venue for a night out treat. We went for birthday drinks with some fancy snacks and were treated to birthday dessert by the venue, which was a lovely touch. We will be going back regularly and bringing friends and family with us.

Food was amazing and it has one of best scenic view for the city. If you already experienced other roof top patios in dowtown area, you must try this spot. Something different and as good as or even better than other roof top bars.

We actually only ended up having drinks up on the rooftop but the service was great and the drinks were delicious. We ended up going downstairs to the cafe for dinner. The food was good, but one of our steaks was overcooked and when we sent it back there weren't any left to replace the overcooked order. Our guest wanted steak so two of us shared ours with her. Not a huge deal and we understand that you may not always have an abundance of steaks on hand, but the steak was ordered medium and was really well done. And then the last thing was we did have one vegan at our party and she found there wasn't really much for her to choose from. We still had a great time and everyone did enjoy what they ate.

the lemon & raspberry cheesecake bites were a great way to end.

We were informed after 2 hours with food and drink on our table that we were only allowed to stay for 2 hours though in a nice way . So we quickly finished up and left. They had no seasonal ie christmas cocktail or special. Nowhere nearby to put our coats. View was worth it despite loud noise level. Service, food, drinks were decent. Opens at 5pm.

I love the rooftop, but on both occasions on which I visited the staff are incredibly poor at thier communication and very snippy. I’ve worked in many high end restaurant bar and lounge establishments and I would never speak to a guest in the way my table and guests have been spoken two on both occasions visited. I will come back but only because of the cocktails, food and view... Servers and Hosts are suppose to finish and add to the experience and on both occasions they have ruined it. I didn’t even want to tip my server because both her and her colleague were very rude. But she was staring at me while I was cashing out and when i hit tip percentage the first option was 20% instead of what it typical of an 18% first option. I was tempted to give 10% only to cover for the kitchen and bar but i was afraid she would say something and make it uncomfortable for us at the end of our dining experience. Overall terrible experience all at the hand of the people who served us. I love the natural ambiance of the restaurant but the servers ruined it.

A very fine place to have an after work drink and snack with a colleages, the noise level was just right to be able to have a good conversation. Snack card pretty limited and overpriced.
The waitress attended a bit too much/often unfortunately....

Disappointing. I have never seen a cocktail described with so many interesting ingredients just to end up tasting like a basic rum and coke. Definitely not going back for the cocktails, wine or beer. Not sure why reviews say they have a great selection of beer when there are only 6 in the menu. Sad that such a good spot is wasted like this.
