The food is always really great. Service as well. Thought we might get a candle for moms birthday but that might be because we weren’t seated in the system ...
This review is solely based on the Dine Out menu which we just tried the other night. Many others have raved about the food here and therefore our expectations were pretty high that the quality and presentation of the food would be of the highest calibre. Aside from a very lacklustre ling cod dish that appeared to be nothing more than a two bite morsel of fish rushed
together haphazardly with 8-10 pea sized cubes of root veggies, the quality and presentation of the food did not disappoint. Overall, I would say the Dine Out dinner menu should be more accurately described as a three course "tasting" menu at best as the portions were WAY too tiny to pass off as full appetizers let alone lunch or dinner sized entrees (which we were certainly not expecting given the set price). In my opinion, this establishment should probably rethink their participation in this event as too many variables (incl quality) needed to be compromised to fit within the limitations of the $40 set menu price. Perhaps something along the lines of a proper prix-fixe menu at $60 or $75pp would make more sense? On a couple of other notes, this restaurant had strange acoustics making it almost impossible to hear someone sitting 2 feet away yet it was nowhere near full to capacity and lastly, the service was second to none, which was definitely a pleasant surprise.
Great staff and service but very mediocre food- and priced as though it would be vaguely memorable (so overall, pretty bad value). Additionally, it was pretty loud.
An evening out with friends and we all enjoyed the atmosphere, superb service and flavourable seafood. The wine list was filled with old world favourites with a wide price band. Yew feels special and we were treated as such. It was a relaxing evening. Thank you.
Food and service are always not bad, although the waiter didn't come back and check us out for a long time sometimes, so we had to wait. The desserts were a bit out of our expectation. I regretted not just having sorbet. Overall, it's a good choice of restaurant.
Yew is one of the best restaurants in town. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner it's always amazing food, service and ambience. I love making it a go to place for cocktails and food.
Great ambience wonderful service and delightful experience
The food is good but the environment is poor. We were seated in a booth with insufficient lighting to read the menu...small print and ink colour not comparable with lighting. Also a large down draft of cold air conditioned air chilled us to the bone and cooled our food very quickly and it was cold less than halfway through. The open kitchen causes the cold air downdraft. Poor design or poor understanding of how the air system should work. Perhaps an unintended consequence of needless energy conservation.
I expect more from 4-Seasons and while the food was good I would not go back as the restaurant is uncomfortable.
It was very nice. the service was great! we will go back.
Food and service were excellent, though expensive, wine list especially so. The room is elegant and expansive with high ceilings and generous spacing between tables. Most remarkable for a busy restaurant of this scale is that the noise is well managed—we were able to converse in normal tones, which made the evening really enjoyable.
