Not good for the price we paid. The seafood wasn't fresh. Tastes like being put in the freezer for a while. The oysters were tiny. Limisted selection of hot food and tasted not good enough

Atmosphere was lovely. Menu items sounded wonderful but all fell flat - one note. Tomato soup tasted no better than out of a can. Caprese salad was delicious and beautifully presented. Risotto was very undercooked to the point the rice was crunchy - far from al dente. Rib eye was cooked to a perfect medium, however there was so much fat on the steak that at least 1/3 of the steak was inedible. Ravioli was average as was the Branzino. Service was slow - despite us notifying them that we had to leave for a TIFF gala opening. It took forever to get our servers attention. Would not recommend TOCA - Toronto has better dining options.

Price seems pretty high for a brunch but when you consider the constant refilling of drinks, outstanding seafood and superb service, it was more than worth it. I can’t eat gluten or pork products, so they made me my own eggs Benedict with gluten free bread and smoked salmon. Our server was friendly and very conscientious. We will definitely go back again even if not for a special occasion.

The TOCA team goes above and beyond to make their time with you memorable. Our server Amy was incredible, I couldn’t have asked for someone more kind and thoughtful to attend to us. The Ritz Carlton, simply put, is luxury at its finest. Follow my Instagram @victoriacoretti to see highlights of our meal. Ps do the chefs tasting menu, you will thank me later.

Toca never disappoints. My husband and I have made this our anniversary spot and love it every time. Felix who we've had the last couple times we've been there is amazing, attentive, and knowledgable. We now feel like home coming to Toca. This year they surprised us with a specialized card signed by the staff - it was such a treat. We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for an exquisite dining experience. Thank you to everyone that made our night special! :)

A return trip with a good friend. This time we tried the chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. As always the food and service was excellent. Only comment was that while the wines were delicious that was a bit overpriced. Would likely order a bottle next time.
