    Had an amazing brunch this past Sunday. I think this is a great addition to the Est offering! Going back again this Sunday.

    Was disappointed in the cooking of the mains at our table. Was not warm enough, took a long time to get to the table. French fries were not warm and delivered early. Prices seemed high given the quality. Appreciated the wine discount, and the starters were good as was dessert. Nice setting, but the main issue to work on is the food, given the prices being charged.

    Excellent food and service. A bit noisy initially but it was full and that is good for all foodies these days. Menu contained many of our family favorites executed to perfection. Also nice not to be rushed and reminded of dining time limits as has become the norm of late.

    Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. I’m not a dessert person but the chocolate cake here changed that.

    Est is a great neighbourhood gem here in the east side of town. I have had the pleasure of dining there before new ownership / menu refresh . Loved that octopus was kept on the menu (this is what usually gets me to come in he he) and the carefully curated eclectic spin on all of the dishes. We didn’t get a picture of the octopus or the dessert,would highly recommend getting both to start off your dining experience here and wrap up with a bit of a sweet kick.

    EST was pretty quiet on a Saturday early evening. The menu is a bit uninspired and kind of expensive for what you get. The staff service was ok but they weren't very quick with changing or taking away plates. Octopus was apparently their best dish but could use more salt and flavours. The lamb was decent but at $70, very expensive. Ragu was just ok. Burrata was ok. Their chocolate cake is good

    This reopened restaurant unfortunately is a poor substitute of the original, but with higher prices. The service was good, but the food was uninspired.

    I took my boyfriend to est to celebrate his birthday. The food was exquisite, carefully sourced and delicious. Chef Jordan pays close attention to every detail. The presentation was just beautiful. The ambience is lovely and the servers were very attentive and knowledgeable. The drinks (lavender martini and raspberry Moscow mule) were tasty and refreshing. We would highly recommend est as your restaurant of choice.

    Wanted to love it but it was average at best. Food came and was cold. Way too much light for dinner, no real ambiance. Unfortunately won’t come back

    Food was authentic. Came here to try the truffle pasta which was excellent. The glaze on the lamb chops was interesting at added sweetness to the dish. Would say the portions could of been better based on the price. Service was polite albeit a tad slow because there was only one waitress attending all the tables for the evening. Overall a great experience.

    I hosted my birthday at Est for 15 people. Andre and his team were exceptional. The service was fantastic, from food and wine recommendations to the timing of the food being served. The small menu meant everything was delicious- and they even created a special dish and dessert for my daughter. The desserts were perfectly proportioned and we tried them all. Can’t recommend Est enough to anyone who wants great ambiance and even better service and food. We will all be back!

    I typically don’t leave a review! But honestly last night the service was terrible! They had content creators and the whole attention was given to them! It took the staff 20 mins to come and take our drink orders, from the time we arrived. It was a bit ironic that they invited content creators to promote the restaurant, yet they didn’t take care of the customers that they already had. Plus these type of promotional photo taking shouldn’t be set on a Saturday night! Definitely will not go back nor recommend it!

    The fooood is amazing! All of it was expertly crafted. The lights could be dimmed and music could be a tad louder as it felt like a cafe. Server was nice but didn’t read our ot notes which kind of ruined the bday dessert surprise. Table beside us came after us but they’re server was faster with everything. Would recommend for sure.

    The food was amazing! Great portions, flavors and presentation. The drinks were also flavorful and fun. Ambience was great, decor was nice and neutral. We also appreciated that the music wasn't too loud. Totally happy with our experience and cant wait to come back

    Nice, hoping for something special since new ownership change? A bit pricey for a more basic experience than expected. Mushroom steak was delish, dining room very quiet, service a bit green but friendly, again apps, mains tasty but nothing stand out.

    Underwhelmed, thinking this was Canada top 50 restaurant. Change in chef and owner but kept the same name. It’s at best a nice neighborhood place.

    Had a great experience at Est last night. Food and service was excellent! My only recommendation would be to lower the lights for better ambiance. It was too bright in there, but otherwise fantastic. Thank you
