    Once again, we had such a great experience at The Butcher Chef in Toronto. The ambiance is contemporary elegant. Everything is over the top. Even the washrooms. The team is skilled and professional and very caring. The food is exquisit and spectacular, while you will still find that you have a decent portion on your plate. Fabulous wines and champagnes are available. I would give you 7 Stars if I could!

    Everything about this place is spectacular. I love that it's a small restaurant. Everyone pays attention to your needs. It was my first time here, and we were a bit lost. Daniel told my husband he would meet him outside, something we were in awe of. I will say what you get is what you pay for. This is the best fine-dining restaurant I've ever been to, and I will definitely be coming back.

    First time here and won't be the last. Attention to detail was great right down to plate service. Our server, Bogdan, was terrific. He made some excellent recommendations which were all good. The 24oz ribeye was perfectly done and a great way to share a plate. Would suggest ordering a few different appetizers and starters, and share with the table. Terrific selection of wines at many price points.

    My party was seated on the patio, where decor obscured the busy street/sidewalk view 👍 I experienced comfortable seating, yummy food, and outstanding service. Moe is my favorite!

    The food was outstanding. From the amuse-bouche to the in-house Waygu chocolates, this was an incredible meal. I must pay special homage though to the 16 oz Waygu ribeye. This decadently rich, well-marbled, perfectly cooked cut of beef was a religious experience.
