    Nice place, food was great but pricey for what you're actually getting. Our waiter was amazing!! He was the best part of our first experience at Daphne. One negative thing is we had a time limit which we were not aware of. Honestly time limits need to be re-considered. We felt rushed at the end.

    This is a great place to dine at anytime but it is a bit expensive for brunch, even it the food did taste great. I would recommend this for special occasions as it can be pricey for everyday dining.

    Everything about this gem of a restaurant deserves rave reviews! The decor is beautiful. The food is very delicious, so fresh, so tasty. The staff are excellent. It is noisy so you might find that somewhat annoying. Overall still a superb experience.

    I wasn't aware when making a reservation that I would not be seated in the main dining hall as I had requested when my reservation was made. I was seated at the bar for brunch, even though while making the reservation I was very clear about where I wanted to be seated. Brunch lacked salt and flavor.

    Food and service were great. We were seated in front of the kitchen and found the noise level quite loud making it harder to talk at our table. This was not noise from the kitchen but the dining area. Had it been just a little quieter, it would have been a 5 star experience.

    Too salty for our taste, we wanted steak medium well and came in medium rare, apparently bread could have been fresher.

    Overall, we have been there 4 times in the past year and Daphne is always fantastic. Food is always delicious and service impeccable. Special shoutout to Josh Kim in particular for taking care of our son and his girlfriend and for ensuring my wife and I got the table we requested for Valentine's Day.

    I liked it in total. I loved the vibe and atmosphere, also, the interior design was awesome. The food was average, the quality of it was good, but the portions were small and the value and taste was not match with the price. But, in average it was of high quality and I liked the experience and I’ll go back again.

    Another overpriced restaurant with average food in the city. They charged us $23 for a steak tartare which was honestly not more than 4 spoonfuls of food. We ordered a few apps, 1 main and 1 drink each for 4 of us and were handed a bill for $100 each. I would skip this spot and go for better value and food at Torontos many Restaraunts that don’t rip you off

    Dinner was great, loved the look of the restaurant and the service overall was top notch. John was our server and he was great, no complaints! Almost everything we ate & drink tasted delicious, the only thing that we didn't enjoy was the truffle baked potato. Unfortunately was a miss for us, but the brussels sprouts were fantastic! Would come back just for those.

    Was excited to try Daphne for brunch. Unfortunately one half of the eggs Benedict was severely undercooked with most of the inner egg white liquid and runny. Despite noting the issue, and leaving that half untouched (the other egg was edible), the response was “sorry”. No replacement and still had to pay full price.

    The hostess and waiter made fun of us for finishing all our food. My mom heard them laughing and talking about our table. Otherwise, it would’ve been a great experience. I suggest having more professional staff.

    Tuna carpaccio and beef tartar were delicious. I was extremely impressed with the wine menu and the merlot bianco. We had the duck Mafalda and branzino with the sun chokes and brussel sprouts. Everything was cooked beautifully and the flavours splendid. We will be back soon.
