    The food was great. Our server however not so much, not very attentive. Long wait for a menu, did not serve us water to start we had to ask for water. These were basic things which most staff offer right away. My bill was wrong I was over charged for my drinks then after looking at it and brining it to her attention she changed the bill.

    The servers were entirely disconnected from our experience. We had 4 people try to take our order, interrupting our meal over and over again. We received drinks and an appetizer in a proper amount of time. Following this, a server came by and asked us how things were and walked away before we answered? Very rude. Afterwards we waited almost an hour for our food. At this point we couldnt find a server to ask questions to. When we found a single person. Asked where the food was and he said itll be 15 minutes. He didnt check, he just told us. After 15 minutes i went inside and found a manager (i think) and asked what is going on. She was then able to immediately get my food. How long was it there for?! Then I needed to get the check, which required 3 follow ups and physically chasing my server. I used to serve. There was a significant staff of servers and you were maybe at half capacity on the patio. I do not understand. I also brought a client of mine to this lunch. The entire process was embarrassing and challenged the pleasant lunch i had planned for us.

    Okay so ! You don’t come here for the food. You come here for the view. I came here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday, the staff were very nice - a little bit on the slow slide but we weren’t in any rush so it was fine. The view is lovely it’s quite honestly the only reason I would come back. The food - lol the food was good, HOWEVER it’s child like portions. We went to McDonald’s right after because we were still hungry. 30$ bowl of pasta and it was about half a cup of food. My boyfriend got the steak and finished it in 4 bites. Food was good ! But not worth the price. Only rec going to see the view really.

    We can here for our anniversary this year. The food was excellent, as were the service and the views. The wine list was not massive, but well-curated and we found a great wine to go with our dinner. The only issue was that it was much louder than we had anticipated, but other than that it was a really delicious experience. We’re going for brunch this morning, so we’re definitely coming back. Well done!

    This restaurant is just breathtaking! The decor is so warm and almost gives a beach house vibe. Luckily the day was sunny and the view was just so out of the world! We went there for brunch and the menu had a good selection of brunch items. Food was actually very tasty. Overall I really enjoyed our experience there and will definitely go back. May be for dinner this time to enjoy the sunset and Toronto skyline in the evening!

    Our server was excellent, quick and kind. He treated my 80 year old Dad and 40 year old husband to dessert for their birthday celebration. The desserts were stunningly good and not just because they were free! I did not see the local ingredients shine through as much as I’d hoped. Time for a refresh of the menu and another tasting trip to California.

    Came here for drinks and got a couple apps. What really stood out here was the service and ambience. Our bartender Nish was extraordinary!! We visit a lot of bars in Toronto and around the world and Nish was hands down our favourite we have ever met. Friendly from the moment we sat down, until we left. We usually don't return to bars as we try to visit new ones all the time, but I can guarantee we will be back, and it was simply due to Nish's services.

    A hot spot however we had one of the two tables without a view. It was raining so no outside seating, so we walked around after lunch. Great Toronto view, nice staff, great atmosphere and lovely food. Will go back when the sun is shinning.

    OMG, the FOOD was excellent we had the salmon, shrimp, fries, and Brocollini. The shrimp and Brocollini were the best. The vibes were great it was an overcast day so the music brought up the vibes. And your staff was super friendly and accommodating. And I really enjoyed the view. I will definitely be returning and recommending it to friends and family. Thanks, Great Job everyone
