The food was ok. I ordered the Quiche with broccoli and cheese I am still looking for them. My salad came with radishes and cherry tomatoes, the other two salads that there ordered had no radishes and one had no tomatoes as well. The service was ok.
The food was awful and very overpriced for what you got.
We live in the area and have had the Beef Bourguignon several times this winter and brought friends on Saturday night, highly recommending this dish. All four of us had it. What a disappointment. They were brought to the table within a couple of minutes, all lukewarm and not nearly as good as before. Very disappointing. Not sure when/if we'll be back.
I dined at La Societe for this past Sunday for brunch. Our server Louis was excellent! He gave us great recommendations. I had the waffles are they were delicious!! My friend and I opted for the limitless mimosas. It took over 20 minutes for us to get our drinks. My first mimosa wasn't exactly worth the wait either-- it tasted like it was 90% OJ with a splash of champagne. My friend's mimosa was the complete opposite it like pure champagne with a touch of juice. Every other part of our brunch was superb except for the inconsistency in our $35 drinks. I would recommend La Societe for brunch but SKIP the amateur bartender drinks!
Forgot to seat us so we ended up waiting 25 minutes and then received food that was over cooked. Not a great first experience! Certainly won’t be back.
the service at la societe is always exceptional! zac and micheal helped our table
Excellent setup, ambience- just a beautiful venue. Service was excellent. Thank you to Brandon, who served us!
Awesome! My server was very attentive and I loved the whole experience! It is my second time here and I would definitely go again.
The ambience is lovely! The restaurant is gorgeous! The food is rich but very well prepared. The service is excellent!
Very good food, excellent wine suggestion and superb service!
I made the reservation for just myself and was given probably the worst table - beside the service area where servers constantly pick up items as well as the main traffic area of diners going in and out. (do restaurants have access to how much a person dines on OpenTable - if so I would likely have gotten a better table. Normally I don’t settle for a bad table but didn’t realize it right away) The food did not live up to the reviews but overall was a nice atmosphere. Service was excellent.
Went with daughter on eve of Queen's Park Page Program... a very special night that did not disappoint in ambience or quality...
The food was very good although the porion size of the seared foie gras was small, it was tasty. The sommelier was helpful finding us the wine we wanted.
As usual, food and service were great! Thanks!
Lovely place, a bit on the pricey side ($17 for onion soup, $4 for a tiny bottle of Diet Coke) and music too loud in every part. HOWEVER, the food was wonderful as was the service in spite of the difficulty of conversation over the din of less than mediocre music .
I’ve been to La Societe for brunch many times, and must say that the quality of the food has sadly declined over the past year and a half. More disappointing is that the staff clearly do not recognize what is and is not acceptable, and so they bring sub-standard food to the table with the expectation that most patrons will just accept what is put in front of them without objection. Bad management for not re-enforcing the standards. Most unfortunate since the decor is so charming.
Came here for a relaxed girls dinner and it did not disappoint. Don’t be discouraged by the detour of building upgrades. It was easy enough to find the restaurant by following the signs on the walls. The waiter was amazing and very helpful about the menu. I ordered the Sea Bass with rice pilaf. The fish was done to perfection and the whole dish was seasoned just to my taste. The atmosphere is elegant and surprisingly comfortable. I will definitely put this on my favourites list.
This was our second visit and once again loved everything. Great food, good service and lovely atmosphere. Will definitely come back again and again.
Awful side plates. None of the dishes were at a high enough standard. Have been here multiple times and this was by far the worst experience
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The ambience at La Societe is second to none.
Food is always on point. Dessert came a little short but good value for the drinks and free parking after evening hours is a plus!!
Excellent service. It was great to speak French to the server as he was francophone.
Terribly noisy for a Sunday brunch...had to shout to speak with someone across the table.
Had noted that it was a birthday celebration at the time of booking and had hoped to have a dessert with a candle...as there was offered in the past.
Disappointing...the croque monsieur was dry and not very tasty...the other dishes were okay.
I expected a better meal and hoped for a special birthday treat for our visitor from the UK. Not very impressed.
Lovely but food was cold. Sent back to the kitchen and rectified but diminished the experience. Costly.
Very lovely meal and excellent service , portion sizes small and upscale pricing however venue is spectacular .
Great atmosphere and good food! Had French onion soup and beef bourguignon, both good. (Wish I knew they validated parking before we paid for it though)
Worst dining experience ever. Horrible service and very over priced. Went for brunch with 'bottomless mimosas' (or so I thought). The waiter was extremely rude and talked down to us. We had a group of 7 and spent over $600 but were still ignored for the entire visit. At the end, they brought the bill and I noticed they had also been charging us for orange juice at $6 a glass even though we had already spend $35/person on the bottomless mimosas. I tried to explain to the waiter that a mimosa is orange juice plus sparkling wine so we should not be charge for orange juice on top of mimosas. He said the orange juice he had brought us was not the usual juice you put in a mimosa so was not included. He said I could speak with the manager which made me hopeful but the manager was even more rude and asserted that there was two types of orange juices, one that was included and one that was not and we were being served the one that was not included with our sparkling wine. I said that they should really tell us if they are planning on serving (and charging for) orange just that was not included. He said "perhaps, but you have drank the orange juice that costs more, which is all that matter, even if you did not know that there was additional cost. We served it, you drank it, so you will be paying for it." I was shocked but we paid the bill anyways, including the added "special" orange juice. I will never being going back to this place as the whole experience was very off-putting. The food was okay, but still, with that service and price, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. And also, they added an automatic 18% gratuity to our bill (which ended up giving our extremely rude waiter a $120 tip!) which was also not negotiable as it was their 'policy' to automatically include an 18% tip, even if the service is terrible. I guess that is why the waiter felt it was okay to not try to serve us well, since he would be pocketing his 18% regardless of being good or terrible.
We decided to return for winterlicious once again. We always enjoy coming to La Société and this time was no exception. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and we enjoyed every minute of our escape to Paris in the heart of downtown Toronto. We look forward to our next visit.
nice food but service needs to be improved
food was awesome, service was so so, our waiter had a bit of an attitude....great atmosphere and location.
Loud music. Waiters is a rush. Very average food given the price.
Loud. Loud louder loudest. Though streak. Tiny tables no privacy.
My friend had poached eggs with salmon and they were cold when they arrived at the table. No fresh ground pepper was offered and had to be asked for. As well, she was served coffee with a lipstick stain on the cup, so had to send back.
We weren’t offered anything other than water until everyone arrived (and one person was 30 min late). Food was good but drinks heavily over priced.
Slow service. Salty food. Won’t go back again. Took over 2 hours.
Had high expectations, didn’t meet them. Food was ok, service ok, & atmosphere ok Yes, ceiling is gorgeous, but when you look closely at the rest of the restaurant, it looked a bit shabby - my chair was wobbly, table top was peeling, & just looked like it needs a bit of a fix-up. Not worth the money, but even at half the price I wouldn’t go back. Not great, just ok.
I'll give them the benefit of doubt, as it was a Winterlicious evening and thus they were inundated with guests who might not normally be there, but for such an establishment, I found the service disappointing.
Food was expensive and not wonderful. Restaurant is gorgeous and service was great.
It was our first visit to La societe, and we ate from the Winterlicious menu.
Always good great pancakes.
