Enjoyed a summerlicious meal at Toca. Menu choices were good. Service was good but could have been great if we were offered a second drink. Restaurant ambiance is relaxing and suitable to a any occasion.

We attended Summericious lunch at TOCA. Food was not as good as we'd expected but acceptable. We thought the salad was oddly just plain lettuce. The main dish was just a piece of fish. An added bit of vegetable and side like potato or rice felt needed. The desert was delectable but tiny. In summary it all felt like child proportions as we were still a bit hungry afterwards.
All this aside, we must say TOCA has a wonderful relaxing ambience. And we must highlight that the service and staff were absolutely exceptional. All were attentive, kind, friendly, and highly professional. They fully made up for any shortcomings in our adventure to TOCA.

Must say for the first time ever after more than 2 dozen visits to TOCA we were not thrilled with the kitchen. Our meal was served within 1 minute from the time we finished our appetizers. When we advised the restaurant manager his answer was that is the way they serve unless otherwise advised. I know for a fact based on our many prior visits that is simply not true.
The food as usual was wonderful.

Booked reservations for my boyfriend’s birthday and I was blown away! From the food to the service to the ambience it was truly reflecting of fine dining Italian culture and the Ritz Carlton. I enjoyed my lobster gigli made with fresh pasta and the panna cotta for dessert was perfect! My server did take a while with the bill but otherwise everything was amazing, 5 stars!

Food is just ok, and it took a long time to get the service, the noise level is not comfortable for me. The environment is fine, the decoration is pretty interesting. It's worth going for a couple of times, but I'd definitely not recommend going there for the food.

We were celebrating a birthday. The food and service was excellent. The one down side was that we were seated next to two tables with babies. The continual screaming was overwhelming at times and took away from our experience. I would suggest putting tables with babies apart from each other to somewhat reduce the noise in one section.

Unlimited Champagne and mimosa were enjoyable. Selection of hot/cold food was good. Seafood includes oyster, clam, shrimp, crab legs (very limited supply) were of good quality. It will be nice to diversify the food selection to include sushi, peking duck, Indian curry, etc.

Be sure to solicit wine advice from Edo who is the sommelier. He has very deep knowledge of wine and of the their wine list. His recommendations are always spot on. Our mains were pasta with wild boar. Oh, so yummy. His recommended wine was awesome. We finished with a cheese plate and matching wines. Again, Edo provided perfect matches. All very wine educational as well. Leah provided great service from start to finish.

It is an Italian restaurant so it is expected to listen to pure Italian music (classic/ opera or something like Pavarotti) or modern Italian songs such as Eros Ramazzotti or the i famous La Chante mi cantate... etc to make the ambience more Italian. The music played was very bad techno or modern disco style. Terrible choice of music.

I'm sad to say this was a disappointing experience. At the price per person, the restaurant was very dark and the ambience lacking. Service is minimal as it's a buffet but even so wasn't outstanding. The food selection was decent but I guess I'm not as into seafood and should have factored this in. One kind of eggs benedict was a little unimaginative and I just think the food and flavours were lacking. Sorry! Wanted to love it but not worth the money in my opinion. Bonus for the bottomless mimosas but not enough to have me return.

THIS PLACE I cannot write enough good things about our experience!!!! Our server was Leah. She made sure we were taken care of from beginning to end. We were sat in a corner that made our night more intimate. Superb service from everyone we encountered. And to end the night, we were surprised by the restaurant staff with a dessert platter welcoming us to Toronto! They also gave us complimentary first round of drinks which was absolutely sweet of them. I can’t thank them enough on how amazing everything was.
