Great place for a first breakfast meeting with a client. She didn’t even mind the coupe making out in the pool beside us!

This was our first time visiting KŌST and we were by no means disappointed. We had an amazing spot on the patio with the best CN tower background, and the service and food were spectacular.

Of course I wish the food/drinks were a bit less expensive, but for the entire ambiance/experience it was well worth it!

The view was beautiful but the food and service is low to mediocre. You’re essentially paying for the view.

So I’m not sure what’s going with the servers, but they seemed a tad confused. One brought us food when we hadn’t ordered yet (confused the tables), another brought us out food, showed us the plate and asked if we ordered that. Like, shouldn’t you know which table ordered what? Another informed us that tres leches cake was huge and that we should share, but when we got it it was smaller than expected and had to wait for a second one (there were two of us). The servers are friendly and nice, they just need to get their serving game in order. As for the food, it was alright, nothing to rave about tbh. I think most people come here for the beautiful view.

our seat wasn’t pool side, yet my bag got wet from the pool water. spent my birthday night slightly paranoid that any chlorine would stain my new bag. the food was great, we got drinks and ice cream, both of which we enjoyed. When I asked to move after getting my bag and shoes wet with water the waitress didn’t allow us to. Not my best restaurant experience but the food and drinks were great.

Too many children, the ambience wasn't right. Kost asks for you to make a reservation but upon arrival, doesn’t have a proper table for you.

The service was lacking MAJORLY
>no one ever picks up the phone, called at least five times
>hostess at main hotel door seemed uninterested and was wearing her mask incorrectly underneath her nose
>at the time of booking we were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion, we were and so I selected anniversary. I thought it was a nice touch and assumed we would receive a small token of appreciation for choosing them for such a special night. What did we get? Aside from the hostess saying "I hear you are celebrating an anniversary today" absolutely nothing. Considering they try to paint themselves as this hip and high end place, I would expected at least a complimentary starter or drinks. Very disappointing. Did not feel appreciated as a patron at all!
>Waiter Dominic was very nice and provided good drink suggestions however he was busy tending too many tables at once and we had more one on one time from busboys than our designated waiter.
>Ambiance is nice with great views of the city but please DO BETTER Kost. You cannot disregard great customer service only because you're located on the 44th floor.
>Paying a 150 dollar bill for 3 drinks and 3 small snacks did not leave a good taste in our mouth.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

They made us wait an hour for our reservation that I had booked three weeks in advanced. I have a bad knee and standing outside for an hour for my table was not fun for me. I also noticed that people were going inside before us when we were waiting outside for our table. They told us we would have a covered table, but when we arrived to the rooftop patio it wasn’t covered and was soaking wet. I had to constantly ask for someone to fix this issue. At this point it was almost 1:30am and we still weren’t seated. I was very disappointed considering I’ve heard so many great things about KOST. I was told that my reservation wasn’t guaranteed, which is odd considering open table is an app to book reservations. Unfortunately, I will not be returning to KOST due to the poor service that they provide.
