    I enjoy meeting my friends for afternoon tea at the Ritz. The atmosphere, the food and the service are very good. However, I believe such a place should serve the tea on a white tablecloth and not on plastic mats. Also, this time around the sandwiches were a bit bland. We always look forward to the cakes. At this place we expect them to be special. They were good, but simpler than they should be, especially the tiny cupcakes. The place is very nice offering enough space for people to feel comfortable. We appreciate this very much. The service is also very courteous and we appreciate this very much.

    Had the afternoon tea. The room was very nice and seating was comfortable. Lunch guests were in the same area as those having tea so at times the lunch smells were overpowering. The servers were friendly, professional and attentive. The food was good but had expected it to be a bit more elevated. The egg and chicken sandwiches were very bland. The cucumber sandwich had very little cream cheese. The smoked salmon sandwich was by far the best of the sandwiches. The scones were perfect. The desserts were very good except the almond financier which was very dry and dense.

    I was inviting 10 guests to a business meal and I clearly said at the arrival that alcohol was not included and that all requests had to be approved by me. I ended up having an enourmous bill where there was a lot of alcohol that the guests had requested and that the maitre has not double check with me. Also there were dishes to share that exceeded the ones I had requested. That was my third event at Epoch and I’m afraid I’ll not be back since I cannot trust the service

    Horrible service, overpriced, not at all an elevated or special experience. Mediocre to paltry food, tea bags!? Packed in like sardines. Do not ever go here, spend your money on four to six other high teas somewhere else. What a rip off! Go anywhere else, like the BEST tea in Ontario (the Montrose Inn!!!)

    We were thoroughly disappointed in our dinning experience at the afternoon High Tea this past Sunday afternoon. While our server was lovely, the overall experience wasn’t at all worth the price tag. I found the selection of teas quite weak and my tea was not hot at all when it was served. When a different server brought out the tower she was holding it a couple inches from the ground, as if it was too heavy, it was bizarre to watch. The bread on the sandwiches felt stale and hard, as if they’d been made in the morning and left to sit out all day. I was also disappointed in some of the sweet selections. The pumpkin spice cheesecake needs more sweetness and the almond financier was dry. On top of this, the staff started hauling chairs and tables from inside to outside while we were dinning. The draft was cold and they were practically carrying the furniture right over our table since we were seated right by the door to the patio. At 400$ with tax and tip for 3 people we certainly won’t be back again.

    Great food but they need to do something about their decor. The chairs are too low and uncomfortable. Not good for eating, poorly designed, not ergonomic. I don’t know what they are trying to accomplish here but it’s ridiculous.

    Although a beautifully decorated restaurant, the salad was old and had no resemblance of a real Caesar salad for $35.00. When did a salad ever become $35 and look and taste like the one at Denny’s. Very disappointed in the quality as the protein add was another 18.00. For that price, it should have been at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas. The service was on par.

The food was mediocre in taste, but excellent in presentation. Overall, a very nice experience - close to theatres so a great stop for before or after……

    I had an outstanding dining experience at Epoch Restaurant in downtown Toronto. The service provided by servers Abhay, Alexis, and Parry was truly exceptional. They were attentive, knowledgeable, and made sure we had a memorable evening. Bartenders John and Jon crafted some of the best cocktails I've ever had, and their attention to detail in mixology was impressive. The kitchen team delivered delectable dishes that were not only delicious but beautifully presented. Kudos to the entire kitchen staff for their culinary expertise. Manager Sami deserves special mention for overseeing a well-run and customer-centric establishment. Overall, Epoch Restaurant and its dedicated team, from servers to bartenders and kitchen staff, created a memorable dining experience that me and my family won't soon forget. Highly recommended!
