Apart from the view and ambience there food lacks originality and has been done before. For a place that could be soo much more coz of the view, it was very disappointing in how average the food was.

We have been to this restaurant 2 times now and we really enjoy it but this time around they didn't have 30 oz steak we usually get, which a little disappointing but other than that it was really good.

A beautiful couple’s date at KŌST. What was meant to be a shorter brunch encounter extended into something much more special.

A huge thanks to Carlos as well as Laura for their kind and professional assistance during our time together.

A guaranteed recommendation for others and a must-book-again for my lady and I.

Thank you

The service was just ok. The manager was very nice - asking us to move our table to make room for other tables and check how things were (after being told our table complained but it wasn't ours it was the one beside us). Our waiter seemed disinterested in serving us and didn't come by to check on us. The food was just ok. For the price I thought it would be better. Bland scrambled eggs in a tortilla shell with a handful of tiny chopped up potato pieces wasn't really worth the $17 price tag.
The space is very pretty and the view beautiful, but I won't be going back to eat there any time soon.

Excellent service from host until the end. Great quality food and amazing view. The only thing bugs me are the restrooms are not on the same level and to access it you have to pass trough an exit staircase in concrete after you pass between the kitchen and the dishwasher area....since the building is new and the decor is so nice...why being so cheap on the restrooms access?

First of all, I made a reservation near window, they gave me a table at middle of the bar. Second, all waitress were poker face, they do not put smile on their face at all. The food serving was so slow even they were not busy. All in total, not worth to come the second time. The music there was so loud, we cannot even enjoy our conversation and food.

My friends and I were visiting each other from different parts of Canada and chose Kost for the views and atmosphere. We had a lovely window spot and watched many people go outside to take picture with one another. When we went out, a staff member repeatedly yelled at us stating the outdoor area was closed and did not provide a reason why. He just yelled like we had purposely broke a rule, yet the doors were unlocked and there was no indication it was closed other than his yelling. Needless to say, he ruined our experience by treating us horribly.

KŌST was outstanding! I would not have changed a thing accept for the weather as it was too windy to go outside.
Our server was the best. He made great suggestions from the wine to the main to the desert. (Chris)

I can’t wait to come again 😁

This was my first time at this restaurant and I’m very happy that I came here. The service, the food and the vibe is amazing and the view is beautiful. Very Friendly staff and our server was very nice and professional and had great recommendations for food and wine. We had steak tartare, oysters, smocked short ribs and fries and all was spot on. The wine selection is nice as well. The only thing needs to be upgrades are the high chairs and I suggest changing it with something more comfortable:). Otherwise everything was very good and my date enjoyed and loved it as well.

Great food in a fab location, views over the city and cn tower. We had the tuna, ribs and cauliflower plus others but they were particularly outstanding.

Service was friendly, relaxed and helpful, although the red wine bizarrely when being poured near the end of the bottle seemed to have become chilled???

Still great food in a vibrant, trendy location, expensive though
