I went to Kost for the first time today and had an incredibly disappointing experience. The group at the table next to us began to cuss and claim the table was for their friends and continued to speak about us even though we had been seated at this table by an employee. We did not engage but they continued to do so and we let our server know and nothing was done about it. This group then began to call additional people over to their table and there was approximately 10-15 people at the table at a time even though Covid restrictions in Ontario state only 4 are allowed at a table at a time. This large group was then in our space as well and had taken off their shoes and bags (even though the pool is closed) and strewn them all over and my friend tripped on his way to the restroom. They still continued to speak about us disrespecfully. We then had to ask the manager to move us as we were feeling uncomfortable and unwelcome and got taken to a table with no umbrella and no one came to serve us. On top of that we had to leave our food and drinks uneaten because it began raining and were not accomodated by the staff at all. It appeared members of this group knew employees and/or the manager and were allowed to be continuously disrespectful to other customers and none of the staff was enforcing any bylaws or basic etiquette. My friend also owns a condo in the building and was left extremly unhappy about the service provided to their own resident.

We had a great time and our server was more than accommodating and fabulous! It was a bit breezy and we were in a back corner but otherwise it was fantastic. The staff was a pleasure.

Absolutely terrible experience especially given that covid restrictions have risen and people want to go out and enjoy a night. Not here. Nobody was there to gratis off of the elevator, my friend and I ended up walking out to the patio past four servers nobody asked if we had a table. We sat down waited for 20 minutes watching servers assist other people we were completely ignored. We left and nobody took notice, your restaurant staff should be ashamed of themselves. And lucky to have a job.

I am new to Toronto and still getting around the city. I was pleased to celebrate the reopening of outdoor dining at Kost. The view is amazing. The customer service is also excellent. Waiters made sure to check up on us regularly and were available if we had any questions about the menu. I will definitely come back !

The place is not properly heated for outdoor dining; they need to cover it more effectively or add more heaters.

Our food came out cold, presumably from sitting too long.

Weird options for food, would prefer more standard options other than a burger. Leek soup doesn’t really scream delicious.

Multiple Servers are obsessively Asking if you’re okay and/or asked if we ordered yet. We had 3 different people come to our table and ask us if we ordered yet. Then I had to watch the manager got angry at the server for not filling our water as soon as it was empty. I watched him point at multiple times angrily at this poor server.

The view here is absolutely gorgeous for sure, but for winter time it’s not recommended— food will come it cold and it’s impossible to stay warm outdoors.

I went there to celebrate my birthday. The view is stunning 😍😍. Food tasted delicious and yummy. All the staffs were following Covid guidelines and rules. They had the heaters on too and I didn’t feel cold at all. I would definitely come here again with my friends. 💖💖

The atmosphere was gorgeous and on the roof- was nice to be away from the sound of the streets. The views of course were amazing—but the staff were so friendly and welcoming. A great experience-but dress warm from this time of year:)

Great vibe with excellent service! I went for lunch on the patio and the views were incredible. Servers were very attentive. The drinks were great and the food was good however I don’t think you come here for the food, it’s more so for the great vibe.

Great day to be on a roof - was just perfect. I love the food here it’s actually super tasty and not over priced for what you would assume of a rooftop (especially at the Bisha). Highly recommend.

Service was decent but barring the views, this place is not worth the price we pay. Food was abysmal to say the least. Had the burrata, roast baby potatoes and the tuna tataki. Everything below average unfortunately.

Our server "Wing Man" aka Chris was awesome. View was a huge pleasant surprise. A wonderful Brunch.
Side note: It would have been nice to offer some items from your lunch menu, like salads after 1pm, but you were only serving Brunch up to 3pm.
Just a suggestion :) Cheers

Everything about our experience at

It certainly was a bonus that it was a sunny and warm day .
The service was prompt and professional and all of our food selections were delicious and visually
well presented.
