My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the combined anniversary/valentines dinner. Ali,our server, went above and beyond to make our evening one of the most memorable of our 53 years together. The menu was exquisite and the overall experience was first rate.

Toca was recommended to us by a friend, and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed a fine lunch in pleasant surroundings, served by attentive but not intrusive wait staff. When so many restaurants are squeezing in as many tables as possible, the tables in Toca are generously spaced, allowing guests to enjoy a modicum of privacy. Lunch at Toca was a first-class experience in every way.

Went with a friend to TOCA for a winterlicious lunch and the restaurant’s ambiance and service itself was nice, however the food did not taste very good. The main that we both ordered was their gnocchi and it tasted like really soft rice cake. I don’t know how their other food tastes, but I wouldn’t recommend the winterlicious gnocchi.

Our only concern was that the salmon must have sat under the broiler for a bit because the top was dried out.

Overall it was a great experience.
Excellent staff and wonderful food.
Sometimes with the Winterlicious experience the staff at the higher end restaurants look down their noses at the clients. Not at Toca.
Thank you very much.

Wasn't as good as I was suspecting. Burger was a bit dry, and you couldn't taste the cheese or garlic aioli on it. Dessert was almost the size of a macaron. The salad appetizer was alright, but nothing special. Service was just ok. Couple times where my water went empty and had to flag down the waiter. Didn't ask if we were paying all together and just dropped off the check without giving us the chance to ask for it split. Then left and had to wait for him to be around again to ask.

The food was amazing and our server was very nice. I would definitely go again . The bread was a little bit salty and it was served with olive oil it would be nice if it came with some balsamic vinegar. Overall i enjoyed my lunch. I would recommend Toca to my friends.

Went to try out their Winterlicious yesterday and put my trust in Ritz Carlton's name.

Pros:
^^^^
Service, ambiance, and proximity to public transit.

Cons:
''''''''''''
The portions were small, probably the smallest I've seen at any restaurant for the price (even though not unreasonably high). The pasta was too salty and other food was just bland that I could probably get at pretty much any restaurant featuring Canadian/American/Italian cuisine downtown.

The service was horrible, it took far too long to get the water refilled, no desserts/drinks were offered after dinner, and the server had forgotten the allergies of the lady at the next table- she had almost gone into anaphylactic shock due to his poor attention to detail. The food was very poorly made, the flavours did not compliment each other and some items came out cold. Definitely not worth the money, or the attention it has received. Would not return.

Food selection and quality was great. Kind of overpriced. Plates where not cleared in a timely manner. Tea and water came very slow after ordering. Had to remind. But overall a nice dinning experience. Personally I think this hotel needs an upgrade renovation, when I walk in it does not feel like a 5 star hotel. Been to many Ritz around the world and this one Looks a bit outdated. Also valet took payment and did not give change back.

Menu didn't have many options. Steak was ok, nothing very special or outstanding. same thing with appetizers. The only thing that was exceptionally good was the dessert. Service was excellent. Our waiter was a true gentleman. He saw that my boyfriend and I want to sit besides each other instead of in front of each other. He put two tables together and changed all the setting.

Great service. Very accommodating, and great location. There were two parties that night so it was pretty lively, but the back booth was tucked away and held cut the noise down.
We were rushed to get to the Theatre and our server was very helpful right down to getting out coats.
The food is good, although I would really like to come back and savour it. I highly recommend the rabbit pasta.

Delicious food, friendly service and great vibe. Pastas come in full and half sizes which is perfect if you’re not super hungry or have a small appetite. Had a starter, main and desert and didn’t feel overly stuffed. Would recommend for a special occasion dinner for sure.
