We dined at Signatures after visiting the Christian Dior exhibition across the street at the Royal Ontario Museum. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Intercontinental Hotel and I'd highly recommend it as a perfect lunch spot on a museum visit or Bloor Street shopping day, a meeting spot near the University of Toronto (I'm an academic so I think of these things) or a great place for a business lunch (and, in fact, there was a group there when we visited). Clean, modern decor accented in restrained French country style; greys, beiges, whites and creams, with the most beautiful golden leather banquettes; and plenty of natural light coming in through tall windows facing onto a hotel court-yard area - a relaxed up-scale atmosphere in a large dining space that feels both spacious and intimate. The lunch menu is not extensive but the dishes are beautifully conceived and the ingredients are the very best; we shared a turkey 'club' in which every ingredient was superlative (real turkey, crisp bacon, lovely lettuce and tomato (in February!) on toasted, brioche-inspired bread). Other entrees included a delicious looking chicken curry, a wonderful creamy cauliflower soup - the chef treats the very best ingredients beautifully. Lovely wine list. Gracious, attentive serving staff, discrete and efficient. We felt pampered and appreciated -

Pleasant locale within the Intercontinental. Convenient for business meeting.

Mixed reviews for service. First breakfast service was very slow. Second day service noticeably better.

Newly renovated and it shows with a positive attitude. Chef visited the early tables before the kitchen was too busy. Great menu - spoilt for choice. Best not to sit too near the entrance to the restaurant as there is a draft from the hotel front door (we visited in mid-January). Very good experience and appreciate the mini-desserts (e.g., 1 chocolate dipped strawberries + truffle for $5).

Comfortable, not noisy, excellent food and service. Ambience is pleasing and attractive. Menu is relatively small but preparation, presentation and service are excellent. Wine list more than adequate.

My friends and I went on a Sunday evening. Honestly the service was slow at the beginning but it caught on as the traffic slowed down. However, it shouldn't be like this given the status of this restaurant. Food was tasty and the presentation was very artistic.

Overall, outstanding experience! The food was comparable to Sassafraz, but at a much more affordable price tag. Just a heads up though, the restaurant does not accept outside food, which includes birthday cakes.

Service was acceptable, but keep in mind we were a group of 20 and were told from the start it would take longer than average to be served, so no surprise there. The ambiance is very pleasant, low lighting and chic decor made it a perfect setting for late 20's - early 30's birthday setting. What made the experience outstanding was the fact that we were seated at the big table in the center of the restaurant (rather a number of smaller tables lined up to make one) . It was not busy at all, so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. There is a great bar next door at Proof, so it was very convenient to hop over for apres-dinner drinks.

The one and only complain is the execrable wine list. I'm all for spending $40+ on a nice bottle of wine, but getting charged $52 for a bottle for your run of the mill Argentinian Malbec that you can buy at LCBO for $12 is a shame.

We had a family celebration for my mom's birthday (about 10 people) and had brunch at Signatures. We had never been before. The service was excellent, the food was great and the place itself is very nicely decorated and a really nice room to be in. I recommend this place and will be back.

The food and service were 1st class. The lamb shank that I ordered was perfect, and the scallops that my wife ordered were exquisite. My wife said the crab cake that she ordered as appetizer was the best she's ever had.
The atmosphere is coffee shop(ish), but the food and service more than makes up for it.
I would definitely return.

Great menu as it shows which items have specific food allergens. My wife has celiac disease & they were very good about checking to make sure her meal was gluten free. They even gave her gluten free bread. Service was excellent & food was very tasty. Very attentive to details. Very relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely go back. The crab cakes were excellent with lots of crab meat &the beef tenderloin was done just right. My wife's mushroom & chicken soup was very tasty & her grilled organic salmon was the best she every had.

Signatures Restaurant provided exceptional food and service once again. Our daughter was celebrating her graduation from U of T and to our surprise the staff reserved their private room for us; created an amazing dessert platter to congratulate her and were incredibly attentive and friendly.
The meal choices are quite diverse and offer alternatives to those with restricted diets or requiring special dietary meals. All the dishes are flavourful; have high quality ingredients and are perfectly seasoned. The soups are an absolute must try! Definitely save room for dessert - there are delicious sampler sizes to try or indulge in one of their offerings.
Great dining experience and thank you to all the staff and the chef who made this special day totally memorable.
