We were there early-ish for a family birthday dinner... before it got really busy. Great atmosphere, great view... our waiter Ethan was super friendly and helpful and went out of his way to help with the menu. Good selection of apps and shareable plates, as well as options for not sharing. I had Black Cod. Delicious.

There was a little miscommunication -- we had no idea we only had 90 minutes at the table... but manager Patrick worked it out and it all turned out fine. We had a great meal, drinks, dessert... thanks to everyone at Kost.

A friend and I came here this past Sunday for the first time. It was recommended to us by a close friend. We are so glad he recommended KOST to us-we were in love with KOST the second we walked in! We loved the layout, the views, the food and the service! This is our new go to spot for breakfast/brunch business meetings! Thank you KOST!! See yous soon!

The service, atmosphere, and food were excellent. My fiancée and I were sat next to the window so we had a view of the city which was amazing. Our server was excellent and very friendly. The food was delicious and we enjoyed everything from start to end. I would very much like to come back very soon. Bravo!

Absolutely everything exceeded expectations. The food, the service and view were beyond your average food experience. The thoughtful attention to every aspect of the food prepared was deliciously noted.

Great service, great food. Was greeted with positive energy right from the beginning. Had a fixed menu because we had a Mirvish Show package and the menu was amazing. I forgot something at the table and promptly got a text from the manager and they brought it down to the lobby for me. Great overall!

I had such a great experience at Kost. We ended up getting a bunch of food to share, and everything was absolutely delicious. Customer service was excellent! We had two bottles of wine for our table, and the server never left our glass empty. I will definitely be coming back!

FOOD ingredients are shockingly bad. It used to be very good when It opened. SERVICE is to be appreciated. Staff was very friendly.

Hope they do something for food, or I recommend not to go this Restaurant in Bisha Hotel.

Good appetizer but the main course and the desserts don’t really match up , the lobster was ok my wife got an undercooked . The dessert was ok . I just appreciate the service the moment I complained they switched our dishes this so I will rate service as outstanding. Overall I expected better food and I don’t think KŌST matched up my expectations.

The service we received was okay - we were being helped by 3 different people so it was difficult to know who to get the attention of when we needed something. Our food came out relatively slow. I ordered a class of wine with my Entree but by the time I had finished it, it hadn't come out yet so I had to cancel it unfortunately. When trying to get the bill, our main server (I think) took a while to approach us - the table beside us, who came after us, left before we did and we had finished all of our meals before them. The portions were quite small for what we paid. We had to get more food after we had finished, but that might have been because we eat a lot.

Overall, the new years experience was sub-par.

Only great thing about it is the view, service was not even slow, but non existent. Food was mediocre and not worth the price.

Went to KŌST based off a recommendation because of the city views. Service by Val was A+ but the food left a lot to be desired. I ordered the breakfast wrap, but the slaw that was listed as an ingredient was not dressed and therefore the dish was incredibly bland and dry. Potatoes were fine but nothing special.

Great food, good service and spectacular views make Kost a unique dining experience. Great for bringing visitors from out of town who want to experience what Toronto has to offer.

Great food and ambience. Our server wasn’t very attentive, didn’t bring milk and sugar with our coffee and tea. Also made us wait for very long for our bill after we asked for it. Other staff were very nice though. I would still come here again.

It was a team/birthday lunch, even though the restaurant was at max capacity we got the most perfect table with a view of the CN Tower. Michael the restaurant manager took or order (perfectly) and our waiter was en point. Everything was yummy! Thanks! I will definitely be back for more.
