Why we love it

Executive chef: Susur Lee

The new Waterworks building location for chef Susur Lee’s King West icon mirrors his menu’s old-new balancing act, pairing vintage and contemporary decor.

    What an experience Lee’s is. Every single dish came as a form of art. And every single dish was absolutely delicious. Don’t leave without getting the slaw. And the shrimp/lobster dumplings were incredible. They come with chicken dumplings so you don’t need to order both. Fabulous experience. Count on paying about $125 st least a person. Totally worth every penny.

    We had a great time and experience with foods. Foods are really creative with Asian flavors without cutting the taste profile. Unfortunately our table cleaner doesn’t take caution with packing our left over food to go. He put the used utensils with used plates on our food that need to be packed for to go. Even it is for us but it make it look alike our left over foods are trash to be clean out to quickly set the table for next customer

    Excellent food , service was good . Sommelier was very helpful. The way the food was expedited was very strange. The appetizer and some of our main courses came at the same time . Enjoyed the food very much but would have preferred some time between courses.

    I was very excited to take my family to Lee to celebrate my husband's birthday and Mother's Day; for my Mom and my first. I knew the food would be delicious (as I've been to Lee's other location before)...and it was overall but unfortunately it was offset by the fact that we were told by our server we only had the table for 2 hours. This ruined our whole experience. Not the server's fault as she was doing was she was told by her manager, however, with it being my family's first time and we had so much to celebrate, it ruined the night. We felt rushed and inhaled our food. We rush all week and were looking forward to a nice night out on a Saturday night but this killed it. When we were practically done eating the server then came back to tell us the manager was 'giving us more time'. The restaurant was not full. Nobody was at the door waiting for a table and yet we were rushed for no reason. I was celebrating my first Mother's Day with my 7 month old who was also dining with us and due to the rush we forgot to take picture of our night out in the city. I would recommend the restaurant to friends but would not encourage the restaurant to do this to patrons again. I was not happy that this was my family's first experience and unlike the experience I had at the other location.

    Even though chef Lee was sitting across from us our entire experience was mediocre. Service was underwhelming. It was my wife’s birthday and we chose Lee to celebrate, made me feel like I paid a fortune for a medium experience.

    The service is above and beyond, but do expect a lot of upselling. The food is very good… some dishes are absolute winners. The green curry is outstanding. Cheeseburger spring rolls were a big winner. Crispy tofu was fire. The signature slaw is truly outstanding. The tuna tartare special was excellent. Scallop was lovely and had a pretty presentation. The black cod was perfectly cooked but a bit sweet and lacking in complexity — and one of our plates was missing the starch element, which was surprising for a resto of this caliber. The steak special was nice, but no better than any average steak house. It also was USDA beef and it would be great if chef Lee made a point of supporting local farmers and food producers, especially when there will be no loss in quality. Overall, we had a lovely birthday dinner … but we did spend an absolute fortune.

    The food was perfect, as usual. The service was awkward at best. We were there for an early dinner before a flight and it seemed they couldn't understand how we could order an amount that seemed reasonable to us (three dishes, after they recommended two to four). They seemed to then lose interest in us and we had to flag down a very lovely and competent manager (?) to settle the bill.

    Lee is the best fine dining restaurant for people who think that fine dining cannot be fun and elegant at the same time. Chef Susur Lee and his team have created a gorgeous new dining room. Their dishes are generous and packed with original flavours. Their hospitality is a gem. The house oozes happiness, kindness and creativity. It’s quite obvious why Susur Lee, decades after being anointed the “father of fusion”, remains a positive force in the world’s restaurant scene. I’ve had many meals at Lee and I would give this review every time. You’ll love the new location!
