Was there with a couple friends last night. My friend ordered the shrimp and mushroom croquettes. Neither of which were outstanding. I had initially told the host that I was looking for a drink that wasn’t overly sweet and he offered the special Manhattan which was very sweet. Neither the host or server asked if it was good.

My last visit was outstanding. Was there for an anniversary. We showed up to 2 glasses of complimentary champagne and the food was amazing!

They gave us Cava for our anniversary, which was our second in lockdown. The heaters kept us warm enough, but you can only do so much with -20C temperatures. Staff was great and so was the food

The food was superb, however due to the limited amount of working heaters for the outside patio - my party and I found it a bit uncomfortable.

Other persons apart from my party felt the same.

We booked a table for 7.30pm. We got lost because we’re here in Toronto for business trip so not familiar with the area. So we were running late. Tried to call the restaurant to let them know but nobody picked up the phone. It wasn’t an option to leave a message. The call just hung up at the end.

We got to the restaurant at 7.48pm (even though they say they’d keep the table for 15mins on the website), we were late only a few mins, but they gave our table away and made us wait for another table. So not too happy about that.

Food was okay.

Service is really slow.

The patio is okay. Just about warm enough for you to enjoy the food.

The NYE set menu food was amazing but the service was not.
I understand that the new Covid regulations (no drinks after 10, restaurants must close at 11) must have been a hassle to deal with, but given the price of the food I expected better.
First of all, they sent me 3 different emails with a time change for our reservation, and when I called multiple times throughout the week they never answered me or answered my messages.
We got to the restaurant at 8:20, 10 minutes early for our reservation, and were told we will be notified when a table opens up. The front was packed with other guests who were not seated on time, and if we hadn't overheard someone complaining to the hostess, we wouldn't have known that we would be waiting for a very long time since the hostess didn't mention it. Good thing we overheard because we went for a walk to kill time. We ended up being seated at 9:30.
The waitress forgot to bring us our drink and a straw we asked for, and then when everyone was getting the remainder of their food packed up we also didn't get one of the courses we ordered. However after asking they gave it to us and also gave us extra brussel sprouts.
It's a shame we weren't able to order drinks as we pleased since the wait time made us start dinner later than planned and the new Covid rule didn't allow for drinks after 10.
The wait staff were all very polite, and as mentioned, I'm sure it wasn't easy for them given that the restaurant was overbooked. The food was really delicious too, I just don't understand how such a nice restaurant could be so unorganized. I don't see why management didn't just call or email everyone who had a reservation after 9:30 to cancel or reschedule.

We had to wait 90 minutes for a table. When we arrived for our 8:30 reservation, the place was in chaos--about twenty people trying to speak with the receptionist at the same time. The receptionist told us the seating would be in half an hour. We waited in a part of the restaurants used for summertime. It was cold, although there were some overhead heaters that helped. We went there to celebrate New Year's at $125 per plate. I assumed at that price we would be getting a drink or two included. No, it was just the food. We had a bottle of wine. The price? Seventy dollars. The first two plates were good, but then we were told that we could no longer stay to eat the main course, the side dish, and the dessert because the restaurant was closing owing to Covid regulations. The management waived the price of the wine. The bill? $600.
after tax and tip. We celebrated New Year's Eve by walking down King Stree, brown bag in hand with the rest of our meal in it, to be eaten the next day. All of this could have been resolved by better management. The restaurant needs to get a better handle on the number of guests that can eat in a comfortable atmosphere at one time. The experience was overpriced. The waitress tried her best under difficult circumstances The evening was a complete disaster.

They overbooked for NYE, and they had to turn away people at the door. Waited almost an hour for our reservation. Great service once we were sat. Great wine selection. Great food.

We had an 8:00 reservation for their New Year’s Eve fixed menu. When we arrived the place was chaos. We were told “10 minutes” and well… that turned into finally being sat at 9:30.

Food was either over or under cooked depending on the course. Some even cold when they arrived. It was clear they did NOT figure out how to do a fixed menu in bulk.

The food started to arrive and they basically put all 4 courses on the table at once, leaving little room to enjoy or even taste all of them.

10:40 arrived , we were barely finished the final course and they turned the lights on and handed us our desserts in to-go bags….

$125 fixed menu and we were rushed out the door without even being able to enjoy most of the meal and dessert in a bag.

Just wow….

Very busy NYE. Lovely prix fixe menu, but timing was all off. Waited over an hour for 1st course, more waiting for second course. Then third and fourth came at the same time. They comped us a round of drinks for our trouble which was nice. Very good food and flamenco was a bonus.

NYE preset dinner took 3.5+ hours with gaps of upto 1 hour between meal courses. Simple requests about dishes were also forgotten or ignored 🤷‍♂️

Staff were slightly apologetic and a small amount of compensation was given, but still a subpar experience considering the heightened NYE pricing.

It appears that my table was given to someone else as when I got there their seemed to be a bit of confusion and couldn’t find my reso and we were just stuffed in between two couples in the bar area. Also appears that whoever sat at my reserved table bills is under my app, as this is not what we ordered…. Food and server were great otherwise.

Great food, the albondingas were by far the best, wonderful cocktails, relatively loud but the ambiance was overall relaxing and interesting. Highly recommend for a date or special occasion; a little pricey in general but not unreasonable. Portions on the smaller side as it’s tapas

Our server was fantastic and the food overall was pretty good. The date appetizer was delicious but other dishes like the cornish hen and the octopus lacked salt. The paella, unfortunately, was somewhat bland and although we ordered a large pan for four people, it was quite small and would have suited two people.

We had made an outdoor dinner reservation for Dec. 4 because nothing else was available but I had assumed that the heat lamps would have provided adequate heating but it was definitely not! There was a draft coming in from the side making it uncomfortably cold. Luckily, they found us seats at the bar and our server was welcoming and communicative, so overall, we had a good time.
