The ambiance and service were excellent. However We found the food was average and expected more flavour and quantity for the price. For example, The short rib selection was tender however it was smothered with too much bbq sauce and it made it not very enjoyable. As well the salad that came with short rib section was very bland with little or no dressing. For the price, I would expect more flavour than average bbq sauce and plain salad.

I am hoping the next time we come back we have a breed food experience.

Thank you

The music was too loud for mid day, doesn’t allow you to have conversations and the all day menu was nothing great. Their most popular dish is an avocado toast and I can assure you, you can make that at home better

I chose to go to Kōst for my birthday brunch. The view that we had was the real selling feature - a gorgeous view of the CN Tower and Lake Ontario on a beautiful morning! The service overall was fine except we did send back all of our meals because the food was cold when it came out. It ended up working out in the end - the kitchen remade our meals and the restaurant comped the pastries we had and four glasses of Prosecco. But when the bill came, they had charged us for 6 instead of 4 meals. We had to keep explaining the error to the manager who eventually did the math and realized that he had overcharged us. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it did make for an awkward end of the meal. For the view, it was worth it and I still had a great birthday!

I wish I asked my server for her name because she was genuinely kind and ensured that we liked our food and drinks. Drinks and food arrived very quickly. Although the dessert came from another kitchen, it was quicker than we anticipated.
Due to the weather everyone was seated indoors and I have to say that it wasn't bad at all.
Music was energetic and so was the vibe.
Went for brunch and ordered the Avocado eggs Benedict, coconut pancakes, frozen Pina colada and ended our meal with the Tres Leche.
Proportion of the food was just right for brunch.
Will be back in the summer :)

Everything was good overall except we were a group of 4 stuck at a tiny table. We ordered some apps and four main courses but everything felt tight. We asked to be moved to a bigger table since we were doing dinner as well, they said the bigger tables were reserved for larger groups but we saw one table came in after us a group of 4 and they had a larger table.


Anyways the experience was good but and we had a great time over all but id probably just do apps and drinks next time. The tony table kind of ruined our dining experience.

Cass was incredible. We had a severe dairy allergy and she ensured that not only were we ordering what was safest, but also that we were going to enjoy our meal. She was very knowledgable and went the extra mile without being asked. She made it easy for us to relax and just enjoy the meal. The food was incredible! We enjoyed every bite and look forward to our next visit.

We have already recommended the restaurant to everyone we speak to!

Had an amazing birthday celebration at Kost. The view is spectacular and definitely worth while. The food and drinks were both delicious, but dessert was our favourite. Our server Ethan was incredible as well. A must try in Toronto for sure.

My waitress barely ever came to check on us so everything took sooo much longer because she literally would come like every 45 minutes. It wasnt even busy, and the food in my honest opinion is no where near up to par compared to other restaurants in toronto. This place is just nice for a view.

The view from the outdoor patio is amazing. The vibe of the restaurant in the hotel reminded me of Las Vegas. I felt like I was taken away to another city and that was a nice escape!

I’ve been to KŌST twice so far and have found the staff quite friendly, helpful and accommodating during both the visits. They try to provide the best possible seating arrangement and one does not have to wait a lot for food to be served, even on a busy day. The music is pleasant and their roof top setting with a view of the city is probably one of the best in town. Food quality is also very impressive given the quick service provided. I’d definitely visit again ..

So I don't even know how to start..
I've been coming here since 2018 , it's been the best of the best until today.
I ordered my usual and it came back wrong 3 times!?
They cut down on the sizes and they got so lazy on the making of the food.
I've complaint to the manager and he did nothing about it and not even gave us a little discount for the inconvenience.
The old manager , last time I ordered the same dish I always order which is the baked eggs , it came out wrong and he fixed it in less than 10min and paid for my whole order ( which he didn't have too )
This one didn't even bother to come to the table afterwords or ask us how was it 😂🤷🏻‍♀️
Not coming back , so unfortunate because it was my favorite place ever to go for brunch.. I can't even imagine how dinner is too but not taking the risk.

We arrived for a breakfast reservation and were seated on the patio. Only when we had even received our coffees did the server inform us that the gas in the kitchen was not working and so most of the items on the menu could not be made - pancakes, any eggs, any hot breakfast items (so basically 90% of the menu). If we had known this before receiving coffee, we would not have stayed but we had already been there for 10 minutes and had a meeting to get to.

We ordered cold items from the menu (croissants etc) which were average at best. The manager did apologize but didn’t offer to remove even the coffees from our bill. Very disappointing.
