    Waiters and staff were very friendly and amazing. Couldn’t ask for better service. The food on the other hand wasn’t good and over priced. The view was great

    Good for summer drinks on the amazing patio. If you are looking for a meal, skip this place, menu is limited and not very good overall. Disappointing as I was hosting friends.

    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

    Food and ambience was amazing! Our main waitress was awful-unattentive, cold, unfriendly, her personality made us feel uncomfortable. Aside from the waitress designated to our table, the staff was great. She doesn’t seem to be the right fit for this position.

    The place has a good vibe, nice views of the city from the 44th floor, and the staff is friendly, but the food took forever to come (More than an hour), and that kind of made me forget any good feedback I had about the place. We arrived at seven and ordered around 7.15. An hour later, I was hungry and angry with no sign of the food and no one even telling us when it will be ready even though we asked and they promised to ask and never came back. The place is pricey too relative to the whole experience I would say it is not good value for money

    The view, the food and the atmosphere was great what ruined it for us on that day was the Service. The waitress was way too busy to attend to us, long waits every time we ordered ...etc before settling the bill the waitress asked us how was our experience, we told her it could have been much better, so she apologized and said that they are short on staff... so, we will give her the benefit of the doubt !!

    This was one of the most disappointing restaurant experiences I have had in a long time. The views are nice but the food was disappointing— honestly i have had better brunch at Denny’s. It took over 40 minutes to get coffee and at one point we were told there was no more coffee in the whole restaurant! Our waiter was nice enough but slow. The music was so loud he couldnt hear our order and we had to repeat it several times.
