    Initially, I was not happy at service because we had requested for a table near the fireplace. The 2 hostesses that was in charge of seating was not accomodating, and stated everything was fully booked, so we were seated at a noisy area of the restaurant. The noisiness of the area is not in keeping with the ambience that is associated with afternoon tea. We went back to them to request a new table, and again, the hostesses were not accomodating. The manager, Seamus, was amazing because he took over, and he was able to seat us in the quieter area near the fireplace with two empty tables. On top of that, our server, Abhay, was amazing! He was very attentive and provided exceptional customer service. Abhay & Seamus made up for the lack of service shown by two hostesses.

    First time going back to afternoon tea at the Ritz since the Pandemic. The portions had gotten smaller, particularly the scones! I was shocked to see when it came out. The tea tasted lovely and they had a great selection to choose from. Overall, the food taste and ambience of the restaurant was lovely and service was good.

    Great night out. The restaurant is really nice looking with a cute patio. Service was amazing. My boyfriend said the burger was one of the best he’s ever had. That’s HUGE. My chicken and our shared focaccia were all great also. Overall everything was great. Will 100% be coming back, maybe to try the afternoon tea next time.

    Firstly, the hostess Lindsay was quite unpleasant and inflexible with seating. Secondly, service was incredibly slow. We sat for 40 minutes without receiving our cocktail orders. Cocktails were good. We had the vampire slayer focaccia which was tasty. However, our server literally picked up my leftover focaccia in her hands to pack it into the take away box. I’ve never been so appalled in my life :(

    Went there for a pre-theatre dinner. Great service and ambiance for an “adult” evening. Mature crowd, inventive cocktails and a cool vibe. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is that it was pricey. But if you can afford it, it is worth a visit. I can’t wait to try some of the other cocktails on the menu.

    For avid Toronto Ritz goers our first time at the new Epoch was the worst Ritz Carelton experience we have ever had. Deck was far better from the menu to the experience and we were very disappointed. The only highlight of our evening was our waiter Cleon who was kind, honest and went above and beyond to try to redeem our negative experience that were had with other staff, the hostess’s and the awful menu. Not to mention, while Cleon gave our party an after dinner tour of their new terrance; he was rudely and condescendingly interrupted by the head chef who called for him saying “Cleon the dishes don’t wash them selves they need washed , that’s why we have a dishwasher” and rolled his eyes. There were a million different ways the Chef could have gotten Cleon’s attention that he needed support in the kitchen. Yes we come to the Ritz carelton for a luxury experience but there is nothing g luxurious about speaking down to your staff … dishwasher , waiter or chef you do not speak to people that way. Overall, would not recommend this restaurant. TOCA on the other hand is a fabulous experience!

    Right from Samantha at the front door to our server Emiliya, bartender John, Neel and to manager Seamus everyone was just great and made us feel special. Emiliya was simply great. She had a small 'science experiment' with my 7 years old daughter. Daughter was WOWed. You certainly created a guest for life 😀

    My family members had a very nice time at Epoch. We were told we had 90 minutes for our reservation (as per email confirmation) but we had only our wine and tea after 65 minutes. The food was slow arriving. We did not feel this was our servers fault, as he was extremely good, and helpful when a drink was spilled. Thankfully we were not rushed out and we had a good experience.

    Lovely upscale yet laid back dining environment. Ambiance was great, we were seated at a corner couch with 2 chairs and 2 small tables near the bar area, it didn't even feel like we were at a restaurant. The food was excellent, we shared several apps - mushroom toast, oysters, skinny fries with truffles, brussel sprouts, all delicious. For entrees we had salmon and lamb burger and for dessert profiteroles. Everything was excellent. Their lychee martinis are so good! All in all a great choice for a birthday celebration. The only thing I didn't appreciate is when I called to tell them we'd be a few minutes late for our reservation the hostess said that's ok, but if it's too late they do require the table back at 9:15 and we only have a 2 hour seating. I hate being told we're going to be 'kicked out' when you're spending that kind of money. But our waiter kept assuring us there was no rush and he would make sure we got our profiteroles for dessert:) He even gave us one complimentary since we were celebrating a birthday. All in all a great choice. I would definitely recommend.

    We went for high tea. It was nice, and the service was great, however, we were disappointed that the scones were mini-sized and we were only allowed to choose one type of tea. Given that the $60 price per person is considerably more expensive than other famous high tea spots in Toronto, we were expecting more. Unlikely we'll go again even though we routinely do high tea.

    Overall, the atmosphere was great. The service was also amazing—very attentive and kind. The tea selection was wonderful and I had a smoky tea that pairs well with dark chocolate. When it came to the high tea experience itself, the food was simple and rather basic. I certainly expected more for value for what we paid.

    It was a lovely birthday tea and we very much appreciated the accommodations made for a nut allergy and the tea was delicious. I very much appreciated the tour of the restaurant at the beginning through our hostess. It was a very gracious touch. The service was extremely professional and the staff very very well trained with the table laid out so beautifully. The only detail that was not great was the message delivered at the beginning of our sitting that we must leave exactly by 2:00. I was aware from our booking that we had a short duration to stay of 1.5 hours. Being given an exact time made me feel rushed and nervous once we hit 2:00. I was quite anxious waiting for us to be told to leave. I do feel that staff can make this happen in a discreet way if needed versus treating everyone the same. Other than that I would highly recommend this lovely tea room.

    We went for the traditional afternoon tea yesterday and it was wonderful! The scones were warm and the dessert were delicious. The salmon sandwich was my personal fave. The best part was the service! Samantha and Zachary were exceptional. They went above and beyond for my birthday celebration with complimentary prosecco and a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

    Great ambience and service. The tables were seated a little close (we were a party of 2 and on lounge chairs/couches) and so we could overhear neighbouring conversations clearly. Also we had to ask for water refills (for drinking water and hot water for tea), as opposed to being offered automatically. It didn't ruin the experience, but something for the restaurant to consider. Otherwise, food, tea and whole experience was great!

    Went to Epoch with my family for my birthday. My 2nd time going and I really enjoyed it both times. I got the lamb burger and it was delicious. However, my mom got the fish n chips, I tried it and we were both underwhelmed, the fish didn’t have much taste to it. I did appreciate the cute ketchup bottles they give with the chips.
