Vertical Restaurant & Bar is an Italian eatery in downtown Toronto. Modern elegance and sophistication are shown in every detail of the dining room design. Gorgeous red sunburst patterns are displayed around the lights on the roof, while a uniquely rustic centerpiece adorns the separation wall between the dining room sections. Tables are well set and arranged so that guests can easily enjoy a private date night dinner, business meetings or a friendly get together. There is an outside patio lounge area for drinks and relaxation if guests prefer a more laid-back atmosphere.
Cuisine at Vertical Restaurant & Bar is fine Italian dining with fresh ingredients. Popular dishes include the house-made gnocchi, arctic char, ravioli with squash filling and shaved truffle, scallops and the parppadelle pasta. Guests at Vertical Restaurant & Bar can order à la carte or in courses. A full-service bar is available with wine pairings upon request.
Will miss it.
I'm crushed that this is the last day of Vertical's residency downtown at FCP. The influx if the big box, fast lunch business crowd has made it extremely challenging for the independent producer of fine food and great experiences. Another sacrifice to the world of SIRCorp-style restaurants. Wherever the folks from Vertical land, I'll consider myself lucky to dine with them again.
It was a great dinner but the start wasn't great. The hostess was obviously confused when we walked in and had to consult the Manager who had obviously given our window table away to another couple. Not impressed.
I had a business lunch and always a little awkward for cuisine for everyone to enjoy. The service was great and from the drinks to the desert and all in between the food was prepared perfectly and temperature was great! My group was more than pleased and impressed!
Ambience. Noise level was good
Been going for years. Food is always top notch but service was just totally messed up last week. My dining companion almost got decapitated by a plate of gnocchi. Yikes!!
Decent food and service but very expensive so I would only recommend for those on expense account. $40 for lunch before tip - entree, coffee, dessert. Handy to financial district.
The food is great, service is great and the environment is great. I would suggest to have a larger selection of food on the menu and larger portion of the dish.
I like vertical. I have often complained that servings at other restaurants are too large. At Vertical they might be 10% too small.
Service was slow
