We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Victor. The cocktails to start were carefully crafter. The waiter assisted with making excellent recommendations for dinner - and suggested wine pairings to boot. A great evening!

The food and drinks were fantastic. The chef was very accommodating for the dishes that we requested to be made vegan. The service was equally as great and the drinks we ordered were not only off-menu, but were probably some of the best versions of our favorite drinks we've had in Toronto. We will definitely be back.

I rsvp’d for 2 for a birthday, but they sat us in a huge booth right next to a corporate event, it was so loud and we couldn’t even hear each other talk. Had to request a seat change.

Ambiance is very nice here. Small restaurant for a hotel but attentive staff. Explained the food very well. Took care of our food restrictions. The sea bass and scallop as a main were both very nice. Oysters in the app were fresh. Prawn appetizer had every nice taste with the crab cake at the bottom. Very indulgent.

Food and atmosphere were perfect for our valentines day. Our server happily allowed us a more private table switch that allowed us to sit side by side. Food was excellent and prompt, our server was patient and helpful, and wine was half-price on Fridays, which certainly helped with my Valentine's Day spending.

A pre-Theatre dinner. Dressed up so wanted a restaurant to complement the experience. Local construction, likely to continue well into 2021, didn’t bode well but once inside the hotel, things improved. Very good service and excellent food. Very pricy wine list unfortunately, and the restaurant lighting was on the bright side. Our server made sure we weren’t rushing to get to our performance on time.

The service was incredible and the food was beyond delicious. I had the burger and it was by far the best in Toronto. They were able to accommodate a large party last minute, which was amazing. The ambience is very cozy and the decor is beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to go to dinner where you can hear the conversation at your table and eat scrumptious food!

Hi Marita, Thank you so much for the lovely words. I always think our burger is one of the best in the city, but i am (a little) biased. We look forward to having you again! All the Best, Kasia

We dined at 5:30 pm on a Friday prior to theatre. The restaurant was not busy which meant noise levels were low and service attentive. 1/2 price bottles of wine on Fridays is a very nice perk. We really enjoyed the food. We split a grilled shrimp with crab cake app. Our entrees were blackened rainbow trout and wild boar tenderloin. Both were very good. Desserts are not made on site but they were tasty. The restaurant is quite close to the theatres on King St, but being on a side street and in a hotel lobby (St Germain Mercer St) , it is a relaxing locale away from the bustle of King St. The decor of the restaurant was thoughtful and I really enjoyed having an easy conversation without the high noise levels present in a lot of restaurants.

Incredibly good service and the food was delicious. It was like eating in France - fresh and few ingredients, allowing for wonderful flavours. I’ve if the few restaurants out that that doesn’t ruin the taste with unnecessary garlic.

We had all just arrived in Toronto and were tired. We didn't want to eat a lot, so we asked to share various dishes. the dishes were delicious and beautifully presented. The staff was very accommodating and kind. We stayed at Le Germain as well, so we had the breakfast buffet as well both days. All lovely. Thanks.
