    I have been patronizing Kost since it opened. The quality of food and service has been generally very good. My last visit was not enjoyable. The noise level was extremely high. I was not able to carry on a conversation. The whole fish we ordered came with a very salty sauce. The fried calamari for $26 was a tiny portion, poor value.

    Went for birthday, requested arrangement in the message during booking, but when came, they put me the opposite of my request, as I requested seating by the window, but they tried to put us by the bar, the host tried to arrange it and accommodate it. Wish they read the arrangement and put RSVP by the table and tried to accommodate before. Overall it worked thankfully. Food was good, waitresses were very friendly n one still training, seemed nervous but we understood. Management is very good. Overall, i am happy. Totally recommended.. i love Kost..

    Drip coffee cups ate too small and the server doesn’t fill them properly. It was annoying to ask for a refill again and again. Tbh the cup size is like two sips and you need more coffee. Plz, change to decent coffee cup sizes. Other than that food is amazing, the service is good, the ambiance is superb, love everything about KŌST. My fav place for brunch.

    Our experience was very memorable in a good way being greeted by Michael upon being seated and having our drink order taken promptly by him. A second manager popped over to check in too, service was definitely on point. My water glass was never low. Signature cocktails a bit pricey but worth it - unique and tasty. I have to say the original server spilled a quarter my cocktail on the table and said nothing, so I was relieved there was a mysterious swap to have Ethan take care of us instead. He was on the ball, super attentive and gave great advice on all of our shared dishes ordered: Aside from some great wine, we enjoyed the oysters, octopus, burrata, tartare, shrimp, tres leche and key lime as shared plates and each dish were absolutely winners - seasoned perfectly and great portions for sharing. The food paired perfectly with service and ambiance which I find doesn't always happen. I look forward to returning.

    Saturday brunch - ordered the coconut pancakes, steak and egg, smoked salmon Benedict and Kost rib on hash. Coconut pancakes - Three pancakes were fluffy with a hint of coconut flavor but nothing to write home about. Steak and egg at $33 .. really small portion of meat with one medium egg on top with 70% of the plate with hash spread out. Smoked salmon Benny - smoked salmon was of good quality but overall standard. kost rib on hash - most disappointing … where’s the rib?” Really ?!?! All the ribs scrapped together would amount to two bites. 85% hash 10% , one small/med sized egg and 5% ribs in tiny bits. I went with my children 17yr 12yr and 10yr olds. I ended up eating one benny and mostly hash that were meh. The aioli drizzled on top made it better. I was curious to find out why this place fills up but now I know. You pay for being up 44floor high and some cool photo ops. After $160 (two juices and tip included) … I break it down as $20/pp x 4 for the visit and the rest was for the food.

    The decor and view of the CN tower were both gorgeous. The staff were also all extremely friendly, polite, and welcoming too. We went at a time where the restaurant was not too busy, so the food arrived very quickly and was really delicious as well (especially the dulce de leche dessert)!

    We had such a great experience at Kost! We came in for a team lunch and it was a great experience. The staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming. The restaurant itself is beautiful and airy, and of course the views were wonderful. The food was tasty and presented nicely. They ended our experience with complimentary desserts as we were celebrating, which was such a nice treat.

    Waiter forgot about our order, we waited over an hour for our food to arrive, and we only got our food served because I had to ask the bar manager about it. Ambience was nice and beautiful decor. Drinks are extremely expensive, I paid $28 for a 9oz glass of wine? Come on!…. Rip off

    Dear Sir or Madam, We celebrated my Birthday on Saturday at 8 pm. Unfortunately, we were not able to cut the cake. They told us there is someone waiting for our table so we should leave there. We could not eat the cake but they charged us for the cake service fee. You cannot charge us 45 $ even though we did not cut the cake. I want you to refund the money because of this issue.
