Delicious and sizeable portions, amazing cocktails, 10/10 experience! :) The Singapore style slaw and the curry roasted chicken are must tries.

I visited this restaurant multiple times. Always had amazing experiences. Even last year when they opened outdoor dinning for the summer. Always exceptional services on all levels. And I always recommended this place to everyone I know like it was my own business.
This time however, it was very different. We had reservation but still had to wait for almost half an hour in a tiny space by the entrance. Customer associates were not pleasant at all. We were nervous because the night before I received quite late call (8:57pm) to remind me that I only will have 2 hours to dine. We came for 8pm reservation waited for about half an hour and restaurant was supposedly getting closed at 10pm. So, you can imagine how we felt waiting there. A lot of confusion between stuff. Waiters and managers that were overseeing our table were just ok, but not as good as it used to be. I didn’t understand the jokes that waitress was cracking when I asked her to cancel transaction as I rethought the amount of tips. Customer service at Lee was always something that I was admiring. I had my best 20 yo birthday, family days, multiple dates with my partner, and numerous get together with friends there and it was just an unbelievable expérience every time. But this time it felt like any other outdoor patio. Lee vibe wasn’t there. A lot of favorite items were out of the manu, food was absolutely delicious but shareable portions was a lot smaller in size. I couldn’t get a drink that I came there for because equipment was broken. Dishes and utensils were very worn off and tables and cheap plastic separators were not as clean as I’d want them to be.
I understand that it’s different times, and it’s difficult for the business in current situation, and everything. But something changed, the vibe of this place disappeared. It used to my to go restaurant and I’d advise it to all my family, friends, colleagues, bosses etc. Now I wouldn’t feel comfortable if they’d have to have same experience as I did.

Had an amazing experience at Lee for a birthday dinner. Although time limit of 90 minutes to dine was mentioned, they did not rush us at all and our server was outstanding. Food was unique, delicious and also a pleasure to view and eat!

Incredible meal. Wonderful service. Delish Sangria. The winners of the night were the slaw, cheeseburger spring rolls, pad Thai and the slow cooked beef. Go with more people so you can order more things to share. Chef Lee was in the kitchen and had a special menu of items he was preparing. The wild blueberry dessert was amazing. Enjoy!

Food was flavorful and service spot on. Dined inside in back room which lacked atmosphere and was a bit sterile. Front room and patio are better.

Great food and service; the only odd part was after we finished eating and our table was cleared, our server never returned. We had to catch a different server to ask for the bill so we could close out.

The service was excellent- Ben and team (including the trainee) who covered while he was on break - outstanding!
With all the hype, I guess I was expecting more.
The featured lamb dish - hmmm had too much going on and seemed to be trying too hard.

It was all lovely!!! We ordered way to much food. Lol we wanted to try so much. Food was great. Some new dishes didn’t live as much. But over all u can’t complain about the food. My one complaint is the waitress told us we need to leave with in our two hour window. She kept mentioning it a couple times. No need for that we understood. So near the end of the meal we found it rushed and basically didn’t really have time to stay for coffee and desert. Cause we got another warning that we were nearing the end of our time frame. For spending that much money on a meal I would think allow ur customers to enjoy their time and meal at their pace. If there was nothing else to order I get it. But if ur still eating and haven’t even ordered desert please don’t rush us.

Celebrated our anniversary here. Booked two weeks ahead of time. Soon as we arrived they got us seated at the patio area as there were no dine-ins yet. The patio was well spaced divided by shield panels. Service was great from the start to the end. Our server Chloe was very knowledgeable and experienced with the items on the menu which made it easy for us to decide since it was our first time dining here. Drinks were good & every dish we ordered was AMAZING! Took some desserts to-go as well. (Drinks: White Orchid, Sangria Dishes: Singapore Slaw, Black Cod, Cheung Fun Desserts: Signature Tong Yuen, Panna Cotta). Also they gave us a complimentary Anniversary dessert to share after our meal (Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar).

Overall first experience was great and definitely set the bar high. Looking forward to coming back especially once Dine-in opens. I think that will bump up the ambience rating considering that they only had Patio seats during our visit.

Great food, the vibe of the patio was very Toronto, people watching paired with a chilled wine or strong cocktail.

Service staff were attentive almost a little too attentive. You get the feeling they’re not so much trying to ensure you get your needs met but that they’re looking to get the table back as soon as possible.
