Last time I went, menu had poor selection and nobody enjoyed. 2 years later, the food was amazing and the cocktails tasted outstanding, seating was classy, service was top tier.

Worth it just for the view! Comfy and impressive space for meetings, tourists or reunions. The food was just ok - avocado salad had too much salty dressing pooled at the bottom and lettuce were huge pieces. Nice staff!

Service was incredible. Even though the restaurant was busy, the hostess made you feel like you’re the only party there. Music could be toned down a bit as it was hard to even hear people at our own table

There was a major accident on the highway coming into Toronto and we were stuck in traffic for an hour causing us to be very late for our reservation. Everyone was so understanding, kept our table for us and we didn’t feel rushed at all. The food and service was amazing, thank you!

Birthday dinner with my wife . Service was very good . Prompt. Food was excellent . Hot and fresh. Perfectly prepared. Portions were adequate . Amazing views of the city . Staff very friendly . Overall a good experience . Didn’t knock my socks off, but still well above average. Value for $ - I would say pretty good given the view . Smoked short rib was excellent as was the flat iron steak . Zucchini fritters were good and the burrata was very good Side Parmesan potatoes were a nice upgrade from fries. Eggplant and cherry tomatoes were also decent, but nothing life changing . I’d give the restaurant a solid 8.5/10 .

It was unfortunate the entire menu wasn't available, as we would've definitely ordered more! Great food, brunch was a great intro to the day. It was a first time and by the end of the meal we booked our next one for dinner to try other menu items!

Beautiful view! Artist decorations, great place to have a nice brunch. Nice presentation of the food. The only downside is that food was kind of salty…

My husband and I took my mom to KOST for brunch on her birthday. The ambience was really nice and so was the service. However, the food, was not great. The avocado in the avocado toast was rancid. They tried to cover it with either lemon or vinegar but the three of us noticed it. The rest of the food we ordered was okay at best. Looking at the menu we were all looking forward to eating there but I have to say that sadly, it wasn’t the experience we were hoping for.

The service is perfect. Ethan was our waiter. He is just amazing and kind😊. I did a special request for the dessert time in advance through Open table and they reconfirm with me when we get the restaurant right away. One recommendation to improve would be put the music a little bit lower. Other than that. Everything was overall.
1000% recommended.
Gracias

The reservation was made for 10:15 to celebrate a birthday. The server was extremely rude and rushed us multiple times to tell us that the kitchen was closing. I understand that a kitchen has to close but the restaurant should not have these late reservations available. She then refused to let us pick a table near the windows when there was ample room. Bad service and wouldn't recommend going unless you want to be rushed.

Food and service is great. We didn’t like that our table was not fixed even after reservations. Wr were asked to share table which is unacceptable if we reserved well in time. Were given separate table later but its devastating at the beginning and shouldn’t have been an option at first place

The Crab in my Crab Benny was stone cold, thus making the egg cold....
The potatoes that came with my Benny were hard, like, some were barely cooked...
Not worth the money at all.

Went for lunch on a Friday it was very loud with chatter so hard to have a conversation, prices of wine and food were exceptionally high...especially $25 for 9oz glass of wine? The view is amazing. It's only worth going for a special occasion.

I was surprised nothing special was done even after I mentioned that we had just gotten engaged the night before... our dinner resturant was happy to service us with champagne and dessert, it was lovely. To not even have someone say "congratulations" (besides the host, who was lovely) is quite appalling as I have worked many years in the service industry. I won't be coming back.

I had the chimichurri steak and the chimichurri had a bunch of cilantro in it. It's typically made with parsley and I hate cilantro. If I had known I would have asked not to have that sauce on it or on the side. Overall, before I tasted the cilantro it was great but after that it was awful. No one had come by for awhile so I ended up eating it :(

Third time at KOST. Consistency in taste yet gives me a different vibe each time, like I’m travelling elsewhere. Love it!
