The cocktails are also fantastic and they have a great wine list. The decorations are beautiful and the service was awesome. Definitely will recommend to everyone I know!

    The Botanist for brunch never disappoints. The food was amazing and the ambience made the rainy day a bit more bright and cheerful. Service was not up to their usual standard as our server was a little slow and inattentive.

    I had a delicious starter (avocado on toast) and a delicious pudding (chocolate mousse). However, the lamb, which on paper should have been delicious was very poor meat quality. It was very fatty and soaked in mint which did nothing to help take off all the fat. It was definitely the 'let down' of the food. However, as I had booked the meal for Christmas Day, it was disappointing that there were very little indications that it was Christmas Day, nor were any of the foods remotely traditional. When I mentioned this to the server, I was advised that 'it was not the direction that the hotel wanted to go in'. All in all, a very average experience despite some of the food being very good.

    We had our Christmas brunch at the botanist, and it was an amazing experience. From the lush green surroundings, to the excellent service, to the exquisite food, everything was top notch. They did not hold our child to the standard menu, and allowed her to get her croissant and pancakes. It really was a fabulous brunch and made Christmas day very special.

    The holidays special 3 course meals was short of expectations. Cocktails were mediocre at best. Appetizers were ok. Main courses served were rather small. Desserts were the only satisfactory course. Requested high chairs prior to arrival but undone. Unnecessary chair then not taken away, could have made more space.

    We had the Holiday brunch set menu. Cocktails, startes and deserts were fantastic but the main was the equivalent of a cheap buffet carvery. The main course let it down but overall was enjoyable.

    I much preferred to be notified if the restaurant decides to cut the menu short during the festive season. There were two main dishes listed on the website we’d like to try and hence we picked Botanist for our Christmas celebration. It was disappointing when we were handed a very limited menu at the time we were seated.

    So the main reason I booked the Botanist was the menu selection on line. When we arrived at the restaurant our menu had only 3 entrees and 3 starters on it. Super disappointing. I asked what happened to the full menu and was told that this was the only things they had available at this time . We ended up sharing the beet salad which for $22 was really small. We then proceeded to leave and go to the lounge downstairs and had a fabulous meal and cocktails.

    High end dining that is very allergy friendly. I never feel left out or disappointed by the allergy friendly options provided by the chef. My only caution is that the noise level has been really high the last few times we have been. This used to be a nice place for a date where you could hold a conversation. The last few visits, it’s been too loud to talk and I spent most of the time wanting to leave to get away from the noise (combo of music and loud voices of people trying to talk over the music).

    We were early and sat in the lounge. Served beverages right away and enjoyed the live music. Our coats were taken and our party of 6 were given a beautiful window view. We enjoyed the tasting menu. Everyone enjoyed it and I recommend that experience. We tried to order as many drinks as we could. They were all delicious. 2 members of our group were vegetarian and they accommodated that nicely. The non alcoholic drinks were just as memorable as the cocktails. Everyone commented on how great the drinks were, as well as the food. The service was outstanding. I wish I remembered our hosts name, he made the night extra special. If you want to feel special and have a memorable experience. Come to Botanist for the tasting experience.

    The service was good as would be expected from a high price restaurant. Same goes for the design and ambiance. The food, however, was lacking to say the least. Almost every food we got from starter to main either lacked flavor or had flavors in conflict with each other. I ordered the lamb, which not only lacked flavor but was overly fatty, with the fat not properly rendered during the cooking process. The other flavors in the dish were at odds with each other, and in a rare event for me, I left food on the table. the scallop appetizers left a lot to be desired with an overly "fish" taste to the scallops and a failed attempt to hide the true flavor of them with sauce that was needlessly salty. The only thing I enjoyed in terms of food/drinks was my spiked eggnog that did not come from the kitchen but rather the bar.

    The experience for Dinner was fantastic. Excellent food and service, Albeit, way over priced. My experience for breakfast was far worse. Ridiculously priced items. My toast was burnt on the ends and the bacon seemed as if it was cooked up in a microwave. When you’re paying high dollar, you expect perfection. They fell short.

    I came for my birthday last year and had an amazing experience, but this year was disappointing. The service wasn't as nearly as friendly or attentive, and I felt like they were rushing me out the door by asking if I was still working on my food every time I put down my cutlery for a minute to look around or answer a text. The food is absolutely delicious– I could happily eat the vegan xo sauce every day– and I love that they offer an entire vegan menu. Unfortunately, the overall experience just didn't justify the price, so I won't be back next year.

    Such amazing food and drink. Botanist did not disappoint with creative and delicious cocktails. All appetizers and mains were well balanced and delicious. Our server was also very appropriately engaging, enough to facilitate decisions to enhance our dining experience and build rapport, but also gave our party space to enjoy. Well done Botanist!

    Two of my colleagues and I went to the Botanist for our Christmas "team dinner". From arrival, the service was excellent. The hostess and the server were very attentive. Our server was so lovely, we did not get her name but she was very knowledgeable about the entire menu, and recommended fantastic cocktails and desserts. We had the beet salad to share (so tasty), and three different mains which we all really enjoyed. The food was cooked to perfection and the flavours really stood out. We were so impressed by this restaurant and will definitely be back. The price point means that it is definitely a novelty unless you are making big bucks, but it is so worth it for an occassional treat. Would highly recommend.
