I had an excellent experience! Staff were attentive to my special request and went out of their way to deliver a complementary dessert to mark a special occasion! Forever grateful :)

Overpriced, drinks did not taste good at all, and they don’t honour reservations when booking for a table outside. Wouldn’t return.

Amazing view of cn tower. Beautiful pool and indoor decor. Very stylish overall.

The Kost breakfast I had was very poor in quality. One of the tortilla bread was burnt (you can’t see it in my picture as I flipped it so my pic looks good). The service never commented or apologized for this burn which was never supposed to be on the plate. There was also something green on the plate, like a burger. I didn’t eat it. The eggs were the smallest sunny side ups I was ever served. I will never go there to eat brunch again and thats supposed to be their best meal (as said by service).

They had a live dj that was playing house music which I enjoyed very much.

Great ambiance, good experience, however, poor service. Ordered starters, we were not given napkins, or extra plates. Our server did not give us the menus either, we had to ask for food menus. Saw the server twice, otherwise, called other people over to help us. For the price, very disappointing. Would recommend the view, however, not the service.

It’s a really nice rooftop patio for food and drinks in the city. The ambience and the view is absolutely spectacular!! Our server, Maria, was super nice and made us feel special, that made our experience at Kost elevated!!

The food and drinks are pricey but to be expected, after all you’re paying for the entirety of the experience. Few vegan options, but they were not bad! It’s worth checking it out!!

Food is amazing, view is amazing. Service was amazing the last time. But this time it was horrible. For a restaurant like this you would expect consistency if your spending $170 on lunch for 2 people with no liquor.

We had a very positive experience. It was our 1 year anniversary and our server was so kind. Aisha offered us a free dessert. Aisha also took our picture in the same spot as last year on our 1st date. KOST will always be a special place to commemorate our anniversary. Couldn't have been better! Thank you so much for making it a memorable night!!

Good for special occasion and for a night out once in a while. Had reservations had to wait 15-20 minutes past the time to get in but totally worth it for the food and views. Service was amazing everyone so nice.

It was a great lunch date. Only the concern was some food lacked flavour and some food had too much salt but the servers made up for it with lots of delicious desert on the house! We would definitely go back. Great location & service.

Ambiance was very nice… accommodating; food came a bit cool so could have been hotter but we were outside so maybe that’s why. Heating lamps kept turning off but they did turn them back on. Music nice. We moved inside after it became cool outside and that was nice. Definitely would go back and try again. Overall very nice evening.

Everything was excellent except the food. Food was horrible.
Customer service was excellent and so was the ambeince but we spent $120 for food that we can't even eat it. We hardly just ate 2-3 bites from each meal and it was discusting.

The atmosphere and views were great. Portion of food needed to be more and the price was a bit on the high side considering proportion. Over all 4 out of 5

The waitress with not very clear english had a very bad attitude, to everything she kept saying this is not my job! If it is not your job get someone who can do that job as a guest i wont ho around asking people of thats there job! It was really bad experience at the start but then our server changed and she could manage to verthingpeacefully and didnt let our evening spoil.

It's just the name of the place and nothing else cause our expectations was too high and we got disappointed. Whatever we requested for in regards to food they don't have so we had to leave... Drink like Pina colada we ordered was watery compared to red lobster. Plastic cups served to us was just nasty and we had to buy our own bottles water. This is it for us!

As someone who works in this industry I do not generally leave negative reviews, that being said I have never really experienced something quite like this. I was kindly treated at the door by the host, and then was taken to a table that was most certainly the worst table in the restaurant it was on the far side of the patio down the side of the restaurant. Once my other two guests arrived 10 min later we asked to move to the table in front, which was still not a great table but was more acceptable than the first. The host we asked if we could move cleared half the new table but left two glasses of water on the table and just never came back. We finally flagged someone down to clear the water glasses and asked for 3 waters and a server. At this point we had been sitting for over 20 minutes it was 150. The server took our drink order at around 155 we sat for another 10 min without our drinks. We then made the decision to go somewhere else for food as it had been almost 45 min and no one has even taken our order. At 1215 we received our drinks and asked for the bills. My one guests drink was not what she ordered so the server removed the drink and bill. One guest paid cash and asked for change and I wanted to pay by machine but the server had to get a new machine because the first one wouldn’t connect (probably because our table was in Tim buck to). When the server returned with change she brought 5 and 10 dollar bills and three quarters. Her bill was only 18 dollars. She wanted to leave a few dollars to tip but 5 was excessive for the quality of service given. Needless to say we spent over an hour at this restaurant and only received one drink, didn’t eat and then had to go elsewhere for lunch.

The entire experience was bizarre. They started by saying we will seat you inside but as soon as there is a table outside we will move you. They didn’t. Our server was on the go. He was a slightly older gentleman (which was nice to see). This lead us to believe he would have lots of experience. He wasn’t overly unfriendly but the he blamed the kitchen on a couple occasions, including when we asked for no cheese on our sandwich and when they gave us different sides for the same item we ordered. We alerted them for a gluten allergy. Let’s just say they didn’t succeed. I was pretty sick. It was the only thing I ate. When we asked him about the different sides he said “sorry gentlemen, looks like the kitchen screwed up again” and then handed us the debit machine. My friend hates the whole thing. I thought it was ok and I was the one who got poisoned. The atmosphere was very cute, very smoky though. My eyes were burning for most of the time. The food was ok, but prob not a great place if you have an allergy. I was pretty sick.

We were first seated on the rooftop patio and the view was amazing. However, it was very windy and they accommodated us inside right away despite being very busy on a Saturday night. Great service and ambiance. Latte and dessert is a must try.

The location and views are great! Unfortunately it was way too windy for the outdoors when we went. Chairs and even drink glasses getting knocked over, so was a little inconvenient to eat. Also the winds made the food very cold very quickly. Potatoes were too lemony.
Did love the views and ambiance and hope to visit again on a less windy day, maybe for the evening lights.
