    What a beautiful dinner last evening. Lots of shared plates and we moved to the gorgeous patio, which I didn’t realize was there for dessert. Excellent wine selection. Highly recommend.

    Stephanie is amazing, do not let her go. One of the best servers we’ve ever had and we dine out at least at once a week. So bubbly, fun and informative. If I could, I would have all of the service tip go to her and then obviously everyone else gets their share. You have a very special and talented server on your hands

    I met Zoe last night and she gave me a warm welcome. She was very professional and attentive, explaining today's special and the menu. I was really impressed with her service. 😊 I recommend trying the "Rib Eye," as it's tender and juicy. The "Squid and Sausage" is also worth a try. The "Beef Tartare" is presented nicely but lacks flavour. The "Tempura Squash" is too greasy due to an excessive amount of flour, leaving an oily taste in the mouth.

    We came to Daphne for our fifth anniversary. The service was fantastic, and the daily special recommendation dish was phenomenal. The team surprised us with a small cake and sparkling wine. We've been to different restaurants to celebrate our anniversary yearly, but this was the first time the servers made us feel extra special. Thanks again for the excellent service; we'll come back next time.

    We were ushered to the loveliest patio which exuded a comfy and stylish ambience without feeling pompous. The surrounding buildings made for a cool and shady space and the heaters strategically positioned above every bench ensured diners on each table enjoyed an optimal level of comfort. Our server, Steph was exceptional! We were going to order three meals for the two of us and she advised us to just start with two - the Shakshuka, followed by the pancake which was just the right amount! She had even added a candle to our pancake when she found out we were doing a belated birthday celebration! Thanks so much Steph and the team at Daphne’s!

    It wasn’t a fun experience unfortunately, booked after seeing the nice dining room from the street, but arriving was led past the front dining room, through the area further back, turned past a hallway of mirrored washroom doors toward what I suppose is an overflow bar area with few people, and no ambiance whatsoever. Our long-awaited date experience was flat, without any atmosphere and uninspired. Cocktails were tasty, but when the appetizers arrived short of flavour and seasoning we paid the bill, pulled up Open Table, and went to a restaurant with more fun.

    My partner and I dined at Daphne on the patio in May. Chic décor, warming outdoor heater, comfortable seating and good international hotel music vibe. We found the ambiance and style of Daphne it’s high point, service and overall culture, another thing. It was my partners birthday and his seafood pasta was well past “aldente”, not mush or overcooked, but no self-respecting Italian would have eaten it, fortunate we are not Italian. My wood fired Branzino was quite delicious with its smoky crispy skin and jalapeno salsa was quite nice. We paired it with a Pecorino from Abruzzo, albeit from the 2022 vintage when 2020 was advertised on the wine list. These small discrepancies do matter. The honestly trying ever so hard-working server accidentally spilled red hot sauce down the right side of my khaki trousers while clearing our mains. He apologized and we understood he was doing his best but I’m a tad surprised a complimentary dessert or digestif was not offered as a small gesture of good will from the establishment. In conclusion, Daphne is a chic place and it is trying hard, but does fall short on what it could be. My partner and I will probably give Daphne another year to grow before trying again. We’ll perhaps wear darker pants next time as well.

    Restaurant layout was original and refreshing. Hospitality was great. Waiters allowed us time to chat amongst ourselves; checking in at all the right times. The food was fantastic - filled with flavour and plated quite well. The Wagyu skirt steak was exceptional. Music was a little loud but overall the atmosphere was good. Would highly recommend for special occasions.

    Food and service were both outstanding. It was a fantastic way to celebrate Mother’s Day with the family. The only nitpicking thing we found was, the tap water they served us had an oder & an after taste. Not sure if that’s the water filter or the water jugs need a good cleaning. All of us at the table could taste and smell it. Very odd for such an establishment as this.

    Staff told us we weren’t allowed to take pictures of our food because it’ll distract the other guests? They Didn’t sing happy birthday when delivering the cake (one person just came handed the birthday cake and left) then multiple staff gathered around and proceeded to sing happy birthday to another table right next to us literally 3 seconds later, no exaggeration.
