The breakfast restaurant is expensive and obviously caters to business travelers staying in the hotel. The food was okay, however, the coffee was not. The best thing about this very expensive breakfast for two was the service.

Checked into the hotel for the weekend to celebrate husband’s b’day. The food and service was great. Just felt that the interior needed s little upgrading. My chair was unstable and the mirrors in the walls were wearing out.

The hotel used to provide one of the more elegant breakfast dining options in Toronto. Quality food ordered from menus, with attentive service. Was a prime spot for a business breakfast meeting. Unfortunately, the hotel's restaurant now offers the same run-of-the-mill buffet breakfast as the average hotel chain, consisting of mediocre, lukewarm offerings, not all promptly refilled. A let-down. Will have to find a proper business venue in the City -- if one exists.

Lovely breakfast ... starting with confirmation call from hostess, enhanced by the beautiful hotel setting, and topped off with great service from our server Kenny, who was so attentive and friendly.

For Mother's Day Queens Tea, we were seated in the bright, spacious, and stately ballroom adjoining the Victoria Cafe. Our party of 4 adults and one 4 year old were seated at a large round table with plenty of space. We were comfortable but also were able to have conversations easily with each other as there was no music and no noise in the space. The tables in the ballroom were nicely spaced apart too so it didn't feel crowded. After informing the staff in advance twice of my daughter's gluten-free diet, there was a mix up in communication on the day of the reservation which the wait and kitchen staff rectified on the spot. Communication and logistics between Open Table and the King Edward for Mother's Day tea reservations was a problem. Open table and the hotel are not in sync and caused me a lot of trouble in the 3 to 5 weeks up to my reservation with respect to the time for my reservation, the number in my party, both Open Table and the King Edward also sent me incorrect reservation confirmation emails 2 or 3 times. A big plus is how they accomodate children and babies easily for the Mother's Day Queen's Tea. They never made me feel guilty for bringing my child along which is the impression some can get in other places.

I'm a fan of Afternoon Tea and I have been to many services :) The food and tea selection was fantastic, but I wouldn't call the service 5 star - they took a while to seat my party of three, and we were crammed in a small table, while there were bigger tables empty or with only two people around us.

We booked the 4:30 timeslot and the service seemed extremely rushed, like they wanted us out of there ASAP. I wasn't offered a glass of bubbly or sherry with my tea (which I would have liked) and no one refilled my creamer.

Pastries and savoury treats were delicious, but service quality was definitely lacking. I've had better.

The service was very good. The staff was quick and attentive. The food was outstanding. So many complex flavors and above and beyond for a brunch for sure. The desserts we're some of the best I have had at a brunch, truly outstanding!

Our experience was overall great. We were very happy with our server. He was very polite and courteous, and took his time to explain the various types of tea and food served. We also had two other employees who came and greeted us and asked us about whether we were enjoying our food.
Overall, it was a great experience for us.

The buffet food was cold and the service was slow. Really not worth the $60 Sunday brunch price tag. The one good thing was the free flowing mimosas for $20.

This was a terrific spot for a business breakfast. The food was tasty, the croissants are some of the best in the city, and the good coffee was a very pleasant surprise. The service was fast, and very polite. I will definitely come back and recommend to my colleagues.

An accessible expression of opulence, this resto not only provides the frills that you'd desire, but do so with such lovely staff that it makes returning both easy, and advised.

We came here for Afternoon Tea on Mother's day and was pretty disappointed by the experience. The food was not particularly exceptional; only average. We took the desserts home and 2 days later, still hadn't finished eating them due to lack of interest. The service was slow. One good thing that I liked about the experience was that they used Wedgwood teaware, which was a nice touch.

Went to OMNI Victoria's Restaurant for afternoon tea and it was an awesome experience! The staff, food (sandwiches/desserts), and the tea was delicious. Attention to detail by their staff; management, service, and chefs are second to none. Definitely an experience you must try and will most likely repeat.
