Tundra restaurant is the perfect place for pre-show dining. It’s welcoming, handy and provides good value. The food is excellent while somewhat unimaginative and is served by cheerful, competent staff.

Excellent food, service and value for your money. The theatre menu is a fantastic idea. I wish more restaurants would do this. I will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

The experience was shot from the beginning. Our server didn't even say hello, or ask anyone how they were, he just shouted "water?" "Ready to order". Absolutely no care or effort was made to serving. The food was mediocre, nothing special or anything rave about. Definitely a miss.

We booked a reservation for 8:15, - took 5 minutes for someone to even seat us. In addition, when we asked for a quiet table , we were placed in a noisy area, and then very close in proximity to another couple. The table arrangements were terrible, just rows of tables, with no sense of ambience or privacy. Then post-dinner , loud table arranging . Not a cosy atmosphere at all.

We’ve been here many times as we often go to the opera but this Winterlicious menu was outstanding! So many layers of flavour. I had the cod and my husband had the pork chop. We both loved the meal.

wait staff seemed a bit frazzled and disorganized over the lunch time. I noticed several diners looking for their waitstaff but unable to locate. our food took a bit long.

our overall meal took 2 hours partly because the dishes took long to come out.

ambience is fine but food is just "ok". chicken was undercooked which was a turn off.

I see no standout reason to return.

We went as a group of six friends for Sunday lunch during Winterlicious. The atmosphere was nice and not loud, with lots of light streaming in. The food was great; my favourite was the brussel sprout and mushroom salad. Our server was also great and they were very accommodating with regards to dietary restrictions. I would be happy to return.

We dined at Tundra during Winterlicious and found the experience disappointing. The food did not live up to the taste promises of the menu (which was exciting to read), except for maybe the dessert. The service was rushed and not attentive. The bill had to be corrected. We sat in a busy area with servers rushing behind us. I had really looked forward to dining at Tundra and to being able to recommend this restaurant to my friends from around the world who will be visiting Toronto in June for the Rotary International Convention. Unfortunately, my recent (and only) dining experience does not enable me to recommend Tundra with confidence. It should be said that we were warmly greeted, both on arriving and departing, by the person at the front desk.

We chose our meal from the "The Nutcracker" menu. The salad and calamari appetizers were delicious as were the Cornish Hen and Salmon mains. The seafood dishes were cooked to perfection. The sauces were unusual and very flavourful. The disappointment was the dessert tray. The miniature desserts were very ordinary. This marred an otherwise excellent meal and left us feeling disatisfied. It would have preferable to have one high quality dessert to finish the meal on a high note. The service was very attentive.

Casual dinner for 5. First server had an excellent knowledge of wine menu. Unfortunately he only returned to serve drinks initially. Multiple servers attended our table, while each were polite, this made for a less welcoming experience than expected. Refills for drinks were slightly slow and had to be requested. All meals tasted good, but nothing stood out as excellent. Portions were smaller than expected. As an example, the butter chicken curry was suggested to be a filling main; yet, was less than so. Poutine was massive, and appreciated as the guests that were hungry after there mains helped themself to my plate. Excellent mushroom and braised beef option for the poutine. Very quiet and lacked a cosiness aspect.

We ate here prior to attendance at the ballet, as we usually do, but this time we had a very pleasant female waiter who took very good care of us. We have had efficient, but perfunctory service from some of the male wait staff in the past. This was pleasantly different. The food was delicious.

I went there for breakfast with a large number of kids. The price was reasonable for the Buffett but the selection was nothing to write home about. In fact I have stayed at this hotel and ate breakfast on the executive floor and the breakfast there is far more superior. I noticed many had complementary coupons for breakfast which may be the reason the selection and quality was less that fair.
The service however was delivered with a smile despite the waiter being very busy and having to service several tables.
Good option if like me, on an occasion like this have several kids and cannot (do not want to) venture too far on your own, and need to stay in the hotel, but if you can try to get in to the executive floor and have breakfast there instead.

We have enjoyed Tundra before - but we have also been frustrated by the same server before.
We were never asked if we wanted tea or coffee after the meal - this has happened with the same server before.
Once our lunch was delivered to the table, we were never approached by server again - no water refill, no coffee refill, no inquiry on anything else...
We practically had to send out a search party to get our bill - and 4 women were not asked if separate bills were desired.
While we would visit again, we would make a reservation specifying we wanted seating in another server's section.

We had the prix fixe menu before the opera , and the steak with scalloped potatoes and brussels sprouts was absolutely perfect- memorable. Service was great, and my only wish would be that it wasn’t connected to a lounge and was a proper restaurant, but the section we were in by the windows did at least create that illusion.

It's a typical big hotel lobby bistro and bar. Rather cold ambiance, true to its name. The food is quite ok, inventive, though the preparation needed more attention. Service was consistently inattentive, slow, and inappropriately formal given the venue.
