    The Lobster roll had very little taste. Could have used an aolie. The mushroom salad was forgettable. The sea bass was good. Overall very expensive for the quality and taste of the food.

    Went to Epoch at the Ritz Carlton Toronto for Mother’s Day afternoon tea with my family. First the good things: the service was very friendly, and nearly all the food was excellent. Our server was very professional, efficient and helpful. The restaurant was handing out beautiful roses to all the moms and their kids, which was also lovely. The room itself was pleasant and relaxing, which I enjoyed. The tea itself was nothing special - probably just teabags you can get at the grocery store. Didn’t have much flavour and wasn’t brewed from proper tea leaves. The tea selection was minimal and there were no listed substitutions for kids who may be too young to drink tea. The sandwiches were tasty but nothing remarkable. I was surprised that they had one called “coronation chicken,” for their chicken sandwich with curry paste smeared on the bread, given the pretty racist colonial implications of the British in India. And the scones were sad - like they forgot to add leavening agent so they were just flat little discs. But I understand it’s hard to mass produce these items for busy days like Mother’s Day. On the other hand I did pay $80 pp for a few dollars worth of food. I would likely not return as it was not worth the money. I didn’t dislike it - not at all. But it definitely wasn’t impressive or memorable.

    We went for the tea service for Mother’s Day and were disappointed. The service was sub par and didn’t see a server for 30mins after our food was delivered. The food was bland and all needed seasonings. Disappointed with this level of execution at a ritz Carlton.

    $63 dollars for a small piece of fish and a bowl of rice for lunch was ridiculous. Add $30 to park and you really feel over charged. I won’t go back for lunch there again.

    I would have given full ratings but the restaurant did not take care when it came to safety. I made this reservation 4 weeks in advance and gave very detailed and specific details on food allergies. Did this on open table and with the restaurant directly. Had 2 servers to start who both confirmed they were aware of the dietary restrictions. Received food and one of my allergens was still in the meal. I was so very lucky I just happened to break apart the sandwich that had the allergen rather than bite into it first and noticed the item upon breaking it apart. I was too trusting of the restaurant but saved myself fortunately from a bad situation.

    Great overall. Great service, staff is friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable, highest quality food we’ve tasted in a long while in GTA, cocktail menue is amazing. Few minor details, just some room for improvement as this is a high end establishment: drinks like Spanish coffee coming in a regular coffee cup, there were no problem with its taste, is a faux pas for Ritz Carlton. Also, the restaurant ran out of Upside Down apple cake, the severs had no idea until the time they had to check with the kitchen when fulfilling the order.

    I had booked the Afternoon High Tea to celebrate a good friends birthday. The last few times we celebrated at the Ritz, we were delighted. There was a Great Gatsby theme and all of the wait staff wore uniforms with long pearls to keep in the spirit of the theme. The entire restaurant was filled with people enjoying their High Tea. This time, there was no theme. The Epoch was filled with random people sitting at the bar and regular participants enjoying a meal. It was not the High Tea experience we were expecting and we were disappointed. We won't be booking again.

We enjoyed high-tea to celebrate my birthday and received the most wonderful hospitality and care- by ALL the staff. The tea was lovely and the food was exquisite- and well presented. We’ll be back again. Special thanks to Amelia!☺️
