    All of it was absolutely delicious. Had the signature experience which was appetizers mains and desert selected by the restaurant. There was a lot of variety and I got the chance to try a ton of new and creative dishes. Highlights were the butter board, ceviche, octopus and braised short rib. I am not a huge fan of meat but it was all done so well I could have had seconds. Can’t wait to come back

    The absolute best food experience I’ve had in Toronto! We got the Signature experience and every course was more epic than the last. We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday here and we both loved it. It’s rare for a place to have great food + cocktails but they managed to do it all and with great service. The dining room also wasn’t too loud so it was easy to chat while eating.

    Friend and I had the "Farm" experience with a swap-out for a pork item. Cocktails were inventive but for me personally, I would've preferred a wine pairing. Friendly, attentive service levels. I was only disappointed with the swap out which was supposed to be a Ceviche but ended up with a haloumi creation that I didn't like. Food was value for money for the quality and inventiveness of the dishes.

    Very disappointing, especially given the number of positive reviews I’d read about Pastiche. The service was friendly but too performative, over-the-top, and insincere. After being seated, within the first five minutes, our server began pushing cocktails on us (really pushy) and when we asked about beer or wine, there was no menu or wine list provided; instead she seemed offended that we weren’t going to order cocktails, then she proceeded to tell us that the beer wasn’t great, listed off two or three and mentioned one was okay. Throughout the evening, the service seemed confused and another server came over and when we didn’t order a second round of drinks, joked about bringing us hard liquor. It was just obnoxious. Then there’s the food… too many ingredients that did not complement each other at all, put together without any thought or sense, and in the end led to nothing having any real taste. Nothing made sense. Especially the tartare - what a waste of good meat. It was sitting in a puddle of hot chili oil… it looked nice, but I couldn’t taste any of the ingredients. I don’t understand how anyone could think immersing tartare in chili oil would ever be a good idea. It was the same thing with each dish. I think the “chef” needs to focus on the actual food and not only on presentation. If you’re using this many ingredients in a dish, the ingredients should be there for a reason (adding layers of taste or texture) and should be perceptible. I felt like this place pretends to know what they were doing, talking the talk without walking the walk, acting like a restaurant with well thought-out dishes when that simply was not the case. The poor server lists out the ingredients and explains the dish… and then the food is just tasteless. If you’re looking for good food, I would definitely not recommend.

    PasticheResponded on November 14, 2022Greetings Ashley and Jacopo, Normally, I don’t handle guest relations but in light of your long, pointed and slanderous reviews, it felt only fair to offer you a most heartfelt response. Please refer to Jacopo's Google review for the full reply. I think I speak for all of the hard working members of the Pastiche family when I say to please do everyone a favour and do not give us a second chance. The fan favourite Steak Tartare will still be here. Sincerely, The “Chef”

    the place is cute. matre d was EXCELLENT. vibe was good but perhaps too loud and too dark during dinner, better for drinks. cocktails were EXCELLENT. we had two servers, neither was great (one kept taking things away before they were finished and the other spent an eternity trying to convince me to buy the cheapest wine on the list because it was "the best syrah" shes ever had (she doesnt seem like a wine person). the wine list was awful..the wines were ok but the actual list seemed like something designed by a childrens art class...it was confusing and hard to read, especially in the darkness. our dishes were pretty good, a couple were excellent, a couple lacked flavour. I guess the most important question after a new dining experience would be "do I want to go back to this restaurant?" Im not sure, maybe give it one more try and if we had different servers or a better table maybe it would be a winner. Matre D and cocktails were so good it might be worth coming back just for drinks, he might be the best Matre D I have ever encountered in Toronto

    Overall great experience. Very attentive and friendly staff. Had 10 course chef experience for 2. Creative presentation and unique combinations of flavours. Halibut dish was very flavourful, a tad on saltier side. Loved the bread/butter palate and veal tongue sliders. Also really enjoyed the spiced almonds-would totally buy a bag to go if it was an option. Portions were perfect. Satisfied without being overstuffed.. but was pretty full after 10 courses. Would come back and order off a la carte menu. Recommended!

    It's refreshing to know that Toronto still has cool, chic restaurants. Pastiche is just that. The attention to detail with the food and presentation was both delicious and fun. From the appetizer spreads on a painters pallet to the Cigar cannoli tiramisu. The vibe and decor is sexy. The service was off the charts. Our servers positive energy, product knowledge and attention to detail is a reflection of Pastiche. I believe her names Carol. Only small negative comment, it was so loud it was difficult to hear my date or the server. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. I hope Pastiche is uber successful. You can tell a lot of planning went into defining the type of restaurant it wants to be. Great place for a memorable date or special occasion. oh, my gf loved the creativity and uniqueness of the drinks. :))

    Is there a better restaurant in Toronto? Pastiche is where ambiance meets creativity meets comfort. I love how whimsical and unpretentious the food is while still delivering HUGE flavour and generous portion sizes. The attention to detail really shines through with this place, i'll be coming back for all future special occasions. A must try.

    The restaurant really cares about the customer experience. I like how they call ahead of the reservation to ask about allergies and food preference. The wait staff are very friendly and attentive. Ambiance was romantic and mysterious. Not too loud. Food came out in a timely manner. Creative food presentation. My partner and I ordered the Pastiche Signature meal option and it provided a variety of food options that was delicious! The last meat dish was a bit dry (reason for the 4 star rating), but overall was a great dining experience!
