The food options here are great. A lot of shareable options if you go with a big group. I was able to change my order a bit to make it autoimmune paleo friendly, so that was a plus! The location has a great view of Toronto & the CN tower. I recommend not going on an extremely hot summer day!

Absolutely pitiful, we were brought to our table and waited 22 minutes before a server came over to ask if we have been helped, I went back up to ask the girl that seated us if we could get some water at the 15 minute mark, I said no to the waitress and she said okay and that she would come serve us, she walked away, cleared 2 tables and checked up on another table at this point it was comical, then she comes to our table, takes our orders and I asked to speak to the manager who offered us free drinks and an appetizer, but our waitress didn’t come back to take the order for the appetizer so we didn’t end up getting it until the end of the meal to-go, and on top of all that my hamburger was burnt lol the manager explained how they were understaffed etc and the waitress had the same excuse, there was barely any tables and more than enough servers and table runners bringing food etc, I’ve bar tended and served and couldn’t believe how bad the service was, oh also the entire time we were waiting for service there was a server standing at the bar cleaning her nails, I mentioned that to the manager also and he said “yeah that happens” like what? Lol such a same because the pool and atmosphere is really cool, but if I was the owner I would get rid of that entire staff and start over, complete waste of a space, there were servers having convos with eachother about nonsense and laughing which just looks so unprofessional when people are waiting for service, overall the place is garbage, such a shame :(

I was nicely surprised with the ambiance at Cabana. Social distancing was maintained and staff were friendly. The only thing that really irritated me was that they refuse to tell you what movie they are playing for Tuesdays Dinner& Movie. I asked them multiple times over the phone, even when they confirmed the reservation the day before and their only response is "you'll find out on social media" and how you find out is 1 hr after the movie has started through Cabana reposting people's stories on their page...

The only other thing which I do understand but it would have been nice to be informed about prior (ie during reservation confirmation) was that they automatically charge you 20% tip. I was in a group of 4 people, so I don't know if this applies to smaller groups.

Unfortunately our experience of Cabana was extremely disappointing. Myself and 5 others came on Aug 11. Our first encounter was with the parking attendant who we felt gave us attitude when we asked a simple question about the parking.

We then walked to the patio and was greeted. The man asked us for ID and said "if you will be drinking you must present ID". 2 people in the group do not drink, so they did not show their ID. He then asked "you don't have ID so that is why you're not drinking?" And that annoyed us because they just simply don't drink alcohol.

We were then seated at a table which we did not like because we were not able to see each other properly and my preferences were clearly not followed (I stated preferences when I booked the reservation.)

I asked the waitress if we can be moved to another table and I was told I must speak to the hostess which I did. We were eventually moved to another table.

We got our food and it was okay, nothing special. The manager came over and apologized for the confusion. She said "the man at the front has the worst job in the house" or something along those lines.

The waitress came back and told us the manager is offering one free alcohol drink. I accepted but the others in the group who originally wanted a drink; did not order because we felt very disappointed the whole time.

We paid and left . We were able to take pictures and the view of the skyline was very nice. In conclusion we will not be returning. We had high hopes for this place and it was not what we expected.

Great place to chill. The food was great. The drinks are a bit expensive. Service was good. Asked for shots , bought a shot for the waitress also. The waitress suggested Ciroc. Got the bill the shots were apparently 10+ each ?!?! I would have like to know how much the shots were before paying for a outrageous amount of money for shots. Music could’ve haves been much better. I felt like I was listening to a tik tok playlist.

The food is over priced and does not taste very good. They should just only just serve drinks and appetizers. The food was not worth the money that was spent. The only good part about the experience was our server. She was attentive and nice other than that I would not recommend their food.

All staff were friendly and server was lovely and apologetic for service delays. I expected a quieter Cabana from website descriptions, but this still felt very much like the Cabana of past years and the extent of physical distancing was questionable. The biggest impact to the experience was the lack of convenient and included parking. Parking requirements were not described sufficiently in the reservation phone call reminder and it was then a disappointment to pay a steep parking fee for lot parking at quite a walk away. The view was incredible as always and the vibe was fun, despite being not quite what I was planning.

Went to cabana for my friends birthday, 6 girls - we had dinner there. The food was great, kind of pricey but kind of expected that. The service was mediocre. Confusion about plates and utensils at one point. The sangria pitcher was mostly ice and tasted like juice. The waitress did her best, but she was run off her feet. 20% Tip was already included in Bill. Which fosters a culture of nonchalant service.

The atmosphere is great, fun, lively and entertaining. And the view is beautiful.

Would go back but accept that the service will be poor.

This waterfront patio restaurant is so beautiful and entertaining. The meals where so tasty and well cooked. The staffs were so friendly, professional and prompt with presenting your request. The restaurant helps plan your birthdays, proposals and whatever event surprises. The location is also wheelchair accessible and friendly.

My only shock of the night was the 20% auto gratuity added to the bill which of $40.00. But because me and my boyfriend had a great time, we didn't mind and we still gave the lady who served us extra $20.00 :).

Overall, would love to revisit.

If you are looking for a lively and energetic experience this is the place for you. Music, people watching and a wide variety of drinks to choose from. This is a social scene. The food is likely what you would expect for a place like this with a few unexpected surprises. Do not try to make changes to menu items, they are mostly pre-made but they taste pretty good. The view is spectacular!

Location did well to social distance, music was great. Drinks were pricy but that was expected. Apps were good, we had a dinner menu at 4:30 which was a tad bit early. We got a beef dish and was over cooked, but presentation was good. Good pricing was high, $23.00 for a veggie burger was a bit high as well.

I checked in with the first person...gave my name and she confirmed my reservation. My daughters and I then made our way up the stairs where I gave my name again to another staff and waited for a shaded table to be ready...all was fine up until. A male then came to the front and asked my name again...which I did....he proceeded to ask my name two additional times as we were being shown our table...it was an uncomfortable situation...i have never been to a restaurant where I make a reservation on open table and then Harassed like that...

Ohmondieu. Everything was stellar. The view is absolutely magical. You're right on the water so you're dead fast in the unubstructed view of the horizon painted in pastels of pink and Lavender mirroring itself on the crystal pale blue simmering glass of the lake's ripples and waves. Then in beautiful contrast is the modern day man's power over earth is titaneous and awing. Even if the food was bad, the server was bad, and the atmosphere was bad, still all could be forgiven. But this would only remain a theory because every aspect was perfect. The beef tenderloin kebab and grilled octopus were incredibly textured and juicy. Okay I confess there was an issue. It wasn't enough! I could've easily double that. Our server was so sweet and attentive while witty in her banter. Finally this was a special atmosphere for the cabana which isn't usually like this. It's a dining experience special to these times, the volume of the music, the type, the amount of people, the kinds, the contrast. It will be noted.
So anyways, totally recommended
