    Reserved 2 guests indoors for dinner a few weeks ahead. We were unexpectedly seated at patio, as they overbooked and we got rained on. We were moved to seats indoors and were asked to move again an hour later to seats at the bar to accommodate a larger party that was going to take our previous seats. The general manager was busy and didn't really care, and he provided very little compensation. To top it off, he never came back to refill our waters for the rest of the night. I would not recommend to dine here, maybe just for drinks.

    Food was good. A bit pricey for what you get. Had multiple servers approach our tables asking the same questions. It seemed a bit unorganized.

    Best experience! The bartender is great too😊 also the music vibe is just right for the place is very well kept very well design. The music is not too loud not too soft just right and really a good place for friends and family. Also my husband loves the kalbi beef and I love the Ube dessert! Like a filipino dessert with a twist. Will definitely come back to this place when we travel again here in Toronto!

    No options for people with gluten allergy. It was limited and also mislabeled on the menu. The chef ended up making me a dish that was OK but I was not able to partake in sharing food with anyone and it made for a very awkward evening for a table of four.

    One of the most disappointing dining experiences I've ever had. I made this large reservation for mine and my partners birthday, online I had chosen the VIP experience which included the semi private room, I also needed to add a card on file which totaled up to $600 with the expectation that each person from the party would spend minimum $50. From the very beginning service was all over the place, half the table had ordered appetizers, while the other half were not told appetizer orders were being taken, so the other half of the table were eating their entrees while the other half were having appetizers... Not to mention that portion sizes some people recieved were different throughout the night? Those who ordered the short rib tacos earlier in the night were shocked to see how tiny the portions were versus those who ordered the same thing later in the evening. Throughout the night we had 3 different servers none of which were keeping track of anything as an entire meal was missed & it was only caught after 45min of waiting for food. To make up for the mishap the only option was an alcohol beverage on the house - once it was made clear this person wasn't drinking there was no secondary option given it was alcohol or nothing. The meal was comped thankfully for poor service. Overall the experience was disappointing, when it came time for the bills we waited another 45 min for the bills just for half of them being incorrect. The house manager of the evening was sincere and apologetic which was appreciated.. but when you book a "VIP" experience, one should be expecting a VIP experience and this was not it. Would not recommend this restaurant for large groups & likely will not be returning
