Beautiful premises, welcoming staff, music just right to set the vibe. The food is top-notch, and comforting - hitting all the right flavour notes. I will have to return soon for the Blue Crab Lettuce Cups, and Billionaire's Shepherd's Pie. Salads were flavourful and fresh to balance the meal. An espresso nitro martini was the perfect ending to the meal.

The central bar is beautifully designed, and I can't think of a better place in Toronto to meet someone special for a drink and snack.

Highly recommended.

Special Birthday Treat and Epoch delivered. The outdoor terrace is an oasis. The food was sooo good. They treated me to a special 'birthday' platter of desserts for sharing which was an unexpected surprise. Prices are high, no doubt but great place to celebrate or treat oneself.

As regular guests for Drinks and Meals prior to EPOCH, I must say I/We were very dissapointed with our first visit to EPOCH as it was not up to the uusal Ritz Carlton Toronto standards. Difficulty in getting a confirmed reservation, then only inside tables when we thought we had booked a patio table and then very spotty service. I will be generous and blame the experience on the long-term effects of COVID-19 and also that EPOCH has not been open very long. I will return, but will leave it some time in order that you can get the act together.

Becoming a part of your guest's story is a unique opportunity to make connection, create a memorable experience and to take the delivery of your service, a step above. Walking into Epoch on Saturday afternoon, to a prime spot as requested on the patio, with 2 handwritten cards wishing both couples a Happy Anniversary was a lovely touch. The complimentary glass of champagne delivered by a different server who expressed congratulations and acknowledged our celebration, demonstrated that the leadership understood the importance of encouraging staff to be more than just a serve but to be in the know and in the real experience of their guest. Hats off to a great team, engaging but not intrusive and professional. The Ritz you are always a class act. Thank you for having us, we will be back.

The only problem was if you make a reservation for 2:30 you have to order right away as the kitchen stops taking weekend brunch orders at 2:30

Minimalist Menu. Several no fail choices like fish and chips or lamb shank but definitely avoid the cheek collar. Chef background is in pub fare.
Service warrants the 18% gratuity on parties of 8 or more pertaining to attentiveness. However, there is room to grow with regards to service knowledge.
I expect nothing less from the Ritz-Carlton.

Ordered the Mussels, Fish & Chips and Shepherd's Pie.

The mussels were flavorful, and all ingredients were fresh.

The Fish was cooked perfectly, and you see from the flakes. The batter was thin and light (which is a good thing) so you can taste the freshness of the haddock.

The Shepherd's Pie was incredible. More meat than potatoes! Not greasy for a Wagyu beef. Generous with the truffles. Tasty and delicious. Comfort food at its best!

The service was great. While there was a bit of wait, the meal was worth it. We got more value for what we paid for. We had an amazing time, and we will definitely return.

Thank you, Epoch!
