If I could think of one word to describe Chef’s Hall during our recent visit, it would have to be “deserted.”

It was so sad to see so many empty restaurant stations, but thank goodness RAMEN ISSHIN was open. The Roasted Garlic Shoyu Ramen is delicious and they serve the best Chicken Karaage in town!

We went to Chefs Hall for our anniversary, expecting to have access to a variety of dining experiences and bars as the website states. I have been to similar concepts in Miami and Montreal and always loved the experience. Here Only two restaurants are open and two bars, which would not have been a problem if we had known earlier, as they advertise 15 restaurants and four bars. Our server was terrible, he was not attentive at all. It took forever to get plates cleared and a refill of our drinks. If he was paying attention to us, we would have kept ordering. We complained to a manager that we had been waiting 30 minutes and no one had seen us. She apologized, bought us shots and then gave us a new server, who was equally as absent. If the place was busy maybe this would make sense but it wasn’t, i was watching my servers all night just be social with their co workers while we had empty drinks. It was so underwhelming, especially for our anniversary. Mid dinner we decided to make reservations elsewhere and celebrate our anniversary somewhere where we would be made to feel special, or at least wanted as guests. I definitely will never go back.

Service started slow, but improved once we got the hard working waitress who took care of us.
Beer and the bratwurst were delicious.

Decent Food, minimal selection however compared to what the website had said.
Hostess was amazing and ended up being our waitress most of the night as the waiter didn't notice us for a while. However, they did go above and beyond and ran out to get ingredients for caesars after they realized they ran out after we ordered two.

Great venue, beers seem to run out quickly and only a couple food vendors open. This is a great place though, better once we are back to normal I’m sure.

Understanding the impact of COVID on restaurants, Chef's Hall was very limited in terms of the food that was offered. Further, the drinks list was also very limited. It is a GREAT location, but the limitations on food and drink are significant.

The food was not good (only the taco and ramen place was open) and the service wasn’t either. One of my friends didn’t drink and they couldn’t even make her a virgin margarita.
At the end, they made a fuss about splitting the cheque (they eventually did but I had to escalate it).
Overall my get-together turned out worse than expected, I wouldn’t recommend coming here.

Food was very good, but presentation - on a metal tray with just a paper cover - more like a food truck than a restaurant. Similar with the terrace seating - basic tables and chairs like a food court. Not sure if this is Covid related, but detracted from what was excellent food. Ambiance and presentation not terrible - just a little unanticipated.

It’s a nice cute place but we went for dinner at 7:45 and they ran out of a lot of things on the menu. I would suggest booking earlier especially on a Saturday. Also our service was very slow half way through another waiter was helping us.

Been here a dozen times pre-covid but this was the first visit since. We sat outside and had a good atmosphere and great service (no longer self service, it is now table service). Great cocktails. The only issue is that only 2 of the restaurants are remaining open so there is not as much choice. The Mexican was terrific taste an quality.

I had a good time at Chef's Hall, the patio is beautiful and I love the concept. The service was attentive and very fast. Only slight caveat is that my request for the food (no onions) was ignored. The waiter apologized, and luckily I am not allergic to it.

this was my first experience and it was great! the food was very tasty except for their Baja fish tacos.
Our server Brendan was absolutely amazing! such a personable, patient and friendly and did an awesome job with our table. We ended up spending 3-4 hours at our table and he was noting but kind and considerate. thank you for a great experience Brandon. i would recommend this place for the awesome staff. The food selection was limited due to COVID and they chose great selections.

--The Down Low--
Food: 2.5/5
Service: 3/5
Quality vs. Price: 2.5/5
Vibe: 4/5

I came here for dinner and drinks with a group of friends on a Thursday evening. Seating was prompt, as we had a reservation. The patio is well decorated and has a welcoming atmosphere.

We all started with some drinks. I ordered the Fresh Ginger Ale (~$5) and it was great, but I can't say the same for the food.

The waiter had to come back to the table at least 3 or 4 times (from what I remember) to apologize and ask my friends and I to choose something else from the menu because the kitchen didn't have what we originally ordered. With only two restaurants operating, it didn't leave many options and it was disappointing. I would have to say that the waiter handled these issues the best that they could and did their best to help our group find other food options.

I ended up ordering the Chicken Karaage Don rice bowl in the Regular size (~$8). It ended up being served to me in a pint-size plastic takeout tub and we were all given single-use plastic utensils to eat with. The chicken was pretty dry and the flavour in the dish completely banked itself on the spicy mayo that was drizzled on top. As a result, I would have to say that I found the presentation and food quality for the price paid to be disappointing.

The kitchen also got one of my friend's orders wrong, on top of not having what they ordered the first time around. This definitely made the Chef's Hall service rating lower in my books.

Overall, until more restaurants return to the food court and the establishment re-gains its footing, I would recommend that you come for the drinks and the patio vibe - but skip the food!
