The service is what really makes you feel like going to KOST more often. From the welcoming vibes the hostess to the fun and kindness of the servers, and to the smile of management and security guards. It’s a beautiful venue! Makes a regular girl feel out of place until all the staff treat you like you belong. Had a great experience! Will be back again !

They made us wait 30 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. Once we got upstairs they gave us the worst table in the room even though there were plenty of other tables available. We requested a nicer table but they refused to accommodate us. The servers are uptight and won’t give you a second look unless you are dressed in all designer outfits. This was clear when they gave the couple behind us a much better table. We clearly told the waitress we won’t be staying long and would like a specific table to which she said no. If you’re looking for a nice ambience and a good view, there are plenty of other bars in Toronto you can go to where they don’t judge you by the way you look.

went for brunch for the first time after lockdown restrictions and service was good but food did not have the same standards as it previously had, the drinks were not great - also seemed a lot more expensive than usual.

We had a reservation but they needed us to wait. Unfortunately there wasn’t any tables ready so they seated us on the beds, but they were soaked from the rain during the day. Otherwise everything else was good!

Food/drinks are on the pricier side but totally worth it for the quality and view. I was celebrating my graduation and our server Ethan brought out a congratulatory dessert! He was amazing, knows everything about the menu and just a great server overall. Great experience!

It takes a lot for me to be impressed with food just because I am a foodie. However, Kōst truly surprised me in every way. Beautiful environment and the food matches the price. I had the burratta (the warm pita, tomatoes and basil together is a very fresh combination - takes me back to Italy), grilled calamari (rapini and then capers at first throw you off but everything together with the garlic and the herbs and the calamari it’s just perfection) and the 8oz flat iron (had it medium rare and it melts in your mouth) - they were all incredible. For dessert I had the Tres leche which was very good as well.

Cutlery was changed in between in between meals which you don’t see anymore. The service was also excellent.

Overall just a beautiful and perfect experience.

The portions of the food are too small. You pay more for the view than for the food but still a good place to go at least once

We had a great first patio dinner of the season at Kōst. It was a very windy evening and at first we were seated in basically a wind tunnel on the side of the building. But when it can time to order the manager found us another table, on a busy evening, and we were able to order and enjoy our meal.
Thanks for the flexibility!

not worth the hype. Service is terrible. The patio is super cold and windy at night. Everything flies off the plates and table. Bring your Canada goose to dinner! Food is meh... They're just adding butter in everything to make up the taste. Cocktail we ordered taste like diluted drinks. I would not recommend dinner at Kost to anyone.

Only issue was the wind and it got quite cold, we should have asked for the umbrella to be lowered but we didn’t know we could ask until we finished lunch!

Sat at the table for quite a while before another waiter noticed we haven’t even been given water or the menu to scan or any communication at all for that matter. At that point we just decided to go elsewhere

I went to Kost for the first time today and had an incredibly disappointing experience. The group at the table next to us began to cuss and claim the table was for their friends and continued to speak about us even though we had been seated at this table by an employee. We did not engage but they continued to do so and we let our server know and nothing was done about it. This group then began to call additional people over to their table and there was approximately 10-15 people at the table at a time even though Covid restrictions in Ontario state only 4 are allowed at a table at a time. This large group was then in our space as well and had taken off their shoes and bags (even though the pool is closed) and strewn them all over and my friend tripped on his way to the restroom. They still continued to speak about us disrespecfully. We then had to ask the manager to move us as we were feeling uncomfortable and unwelcome and got taken to a table with no umbrella and no one came to serve us. On top of that we had to leave our food and drinks uneaten because it began raining and were not accomodated by the staff at all. It appeared members of this group knew employees and/or the manager and were allowed to be continuously disrespectful to other customers and none of the staff was enforcing any bylaws or basic etiquette. My friend also owns a condo in the building and was left extremly unhappy about the service provided to their own resident.

Stunning views and good food. Very attentive service. I must say though the price of drinks was exorbitant. I guess you pay for the view
