    Stunning view of the city and I was pleasantly surprised by the tasty menu. Service was erratic - our server was pleasant but had a habit of disappearing for long periods of time.

    The service was super slow. We waited very long for just the first round of drinks. The servers weren’t around to check in. There is no smoke room/balcony access available which meant to go down all the way to the entrance of the hotel downstairs for a smoke.

    I made the reservation through Open Table a couple of weeks ago. The occasion was to celebrate my wife’s birthday. When we arrived at Hotel X the reception desk informed us that Valerie Restaurant was closed. There was no known reason why it was closed. Many other patrons were turned away with no explanation. Needless to say the fabulous views from this restaurant were not available to us. Neither the hotel, the restaurant nor Open Table informed us of the cancellation. The was shoddy service.

    Service was terrible. Food was ok. Would never go back for dinner. Its more a place to grab a drink and go somewhere else to eat after. Will never go back again. Very bad experience from start to finish!

    The night my guest and I arrived to the restaurant we were greeted with looks of disgust, quite confused why a hostess would be looking at anyone in this manner. Our server was great, the restaurant itself, atmosphere wise was amazing, but the hostess at the front, not impressed with her "customer service"

    We had a few severe allergies and Francesca was amazingly thoughtful, courteous and went far above expectations to exceed our expectations. She awed us with her commitment to service and quality. We felt taken care of and valued. Thank you Francesca for your help, care and attention. You are what five star service is all about. Thank you.

    Loved the tapas style. Service was lovely. My only constructive feedback is the music was a bit loud (not live music). I think we were under a speaker so it may have been louder for us. But a great view of the city. If you like Japanese infused, tapas style - it’s a great treat.

    This is a restaurant with a view! The ambiance was stunning making it the perfect venue to celebrate a special occasion. A great place to share some appetizers and Maki rolls while sipping cocktails. The truffle Maki roll was a fast favourite. After dinner on the 28th floor the very friendly, accommodating staff brought us to a table on the 29th floor to continue enjoying cocktails and the city lights by night.

    This place was just disappointing in every possible way. We were seated in the darkest corner of the restaurant even though more than half of the restaurant was empty. It was for a special occasion but no one seemed to acknowledge or care for the OpenTable occasion specified. The food was terrible and nothing tasted good. Veggie options had no taste at all. The cucumber salad was served frozen. The worst part, our server fully ignored us after giving us our food and never came back to check on us or even to refill our water. We had to ask someone else to get her so that we could pay our bill and leave. When I put down 20% tip, she was visibly upset and just threw our receipt on the table and walked away without saying thank you or good night to us. To be honest, that is more of a generous tip than what she even deserved but this attitude of entitlement is what drives me away from visiting restaurants like this. I am just happy I did not stay at Hotel X as this experience would have just ruined our entire trip.

    Would not recommend it. The food was mediocre, terribly overpriced, the service was absolutely terrible, the drinks were ok, there is basically NO wine list, the vibe was ok and the only thing it had was the view, it was beautiful. I would only recommend this for the view and one drink, then go somewhere else. But since nothing is around it, that makes it hard too. Food portions really small and not amazing. The wine list was on a laminated piece of paper and they had 4 reds, 4 whites (no Sauvignon blanc) and one rose.

    Impromptu night out to catch with a girlfriend. Our service was dismissive. She did not even introduce herself when she came to the table. The DJ and overall aesthetic of the venue made up for the poor service. Great music and vibe. We will be back in the near future.

    I had dinner last night at Valerie, it was Thursday so it wasn't busy. Service was ok but the food portion was poor not worth the price one skewer of shrimp 28$ and one skewer of chicken 24$ Sandwich burger wasn't available. Its nice place for a date but its pricy for the food they offer.

    Rooftop was closed even though my reservation was booked specifically for the rooftop and that’s why there was a space limit. When we arrived almost whole place was vacant and the reservation stated 9pm to 11pm live music. There was no live music. Cocktail was flawless but service was poor and the reservation stated business casual and our waitress had nikes on her. Didn’t fit the ambience well. I would expect better from the management since the customers are adhering to the specified dress code.

    3 out of 4 of us wanted the burger but they did not have any. Only one bartender for restaurant so waited about 1/2 hour for each drink order. Fried were good but all the other food we were able to order was ok at best.

    Me and my friends came to the rooftop and unfortunately we did not have a good experience the service was extremely slow and our server really was not attentive and gave attitude whenever we ask for something. We ordered sushi and when the sushi finally came there was no cutlery so the server went to get cutlery we noticed there was no chopstick so we asked for chopsticks and then she responded with attitude that the chopsticks should have been with the cutlery and if it didn't come with the cutlery then they had ran out of sushi sticks. We also ordered edamame's that never came we finished our food and we asked to cancel it since it hadn't come then we asked for the bill we asked for it separately and she came gave us the bill all together left the machine turned around and walked away. For us to cash ourselves out. And as we were walking out we heard her complaining to her manager about our table. I did speak to you a manager before I left and explained how I felt and they offered us free round of shots which doesn't really do much but I really hope that they train their staff to make every table feel welcome.

    Where to start… first off, we had high hopes for Valerie, it was a convenient meeting spot and pre-concert meal/drinks for a group of six of us, four of us who were staying the night at Hotel X from out of town. We made a reservation for 3pm when the roof top section opens, thinking it wouldn’t be busy, service would be quick and we could have a great time catching up and filling up before the concert First, the beer selection is terrible, 4 options, really? They ran out of two immediately so we were left with Corona or Ace Hill carbfree. The service was unapologetically slow. No interest in refreshing our drinks, you’d think with the prices they charge they would be pushing the alcohol. If you enjoy paying $20 for a can of premixed cocktail that you can pick up at LCBO for $3.15, and not even get ice in your plastic cup, and have to pour the cocktail yourself, this is the venue for you. Secondly, we ordered food off their limited day menu only to be informed when the hostess came back that they didn’t have any burgers. Again, really? Oh and the sushi rolls were unavailable until 5pm. So when food did finally arrive it was all cold and it was mass confusion with the servers as to which groups the food was supposed to go to. Still weren’t offered more drinks to go with the food. Also the prices vs portion size were ridiculous. We then learned that there was a 2hr limit for our spot so we asked about being moved to the indoor restaurant so we could order some sushi. Unsurprisingly they didn’t have space for us so we gave up and went back to the room for a bit.

    Didn't have enough chairs for us, we were seated on a couch. Waited 30 min for the waitress to come. Drinks were really bad. Food never got to our table, we left without eating. Excuse for bad service was that they were hosting a 300 people party and a very VIP rapper. So I guess we didn't deserve the service we were paying for...

    I have never left an online review before BUT - One of the WORST experiences I've ever had at a restaurant. -Sat us next to service station. All the servers standing beside our table gossiping about other customers. Was crowded with people at the edge of our table top. -Switched tables, server forgot drinks -Speaker at next table at knee level and blaring music, couldn't have conversation -Some food items on menu (3 of 12) not available due to "supply issues" -Food "came from two separate kitchens" attempted to give us one person's food 25 minutes before the other. We ended up sending the one person's food back (have never done that before) -Table top came dislodged and almost flipped when elbows where barely placed on it (gum under the table top) -All servers running around with nothing in their hands, other customers at two other tables around us overheard complaining about drinks, food and service. There was barely anyone dining - why was this happening? -Two hostesses each on cell phones texting and talking to eachother at elevators on the way in and out. Terrible, will never go back!

    Worst service I’ve ever experienced , arrived to be told that the roof terrace was closed even though bright sunshine .we only booked it because of the roof terrace , they didn’t call me and made excuse after excuse with no real apology . Food order was unacceptably slow and items forgotten .don’t bother with this overpriced restaurant.

    Despite my saying in the reservation that it was my son’s birthday, we were given a table with a crap view, they brought our food with no cutlery, when we asked for cutlery, we were told ‘this is not my section, I’m not sure’, and the staff did not seem to be engaged or care. Huge potential that didn’t deliver.
