    The food was very tasty. The ambience was good. The service was good. Overall we found most of the menu items over priced. You ran out of bread how does that happen?

    Odd evening. EXTREMELY SLOW pace from the kitchen! 30-40 minutes between courses. Not that busy to warrant that. Started at the bar with oysters & bubbles. Odd running commentary about being able to " handle" a single person walk-in. There was a three top & 2 of us... We felt so weird we actually moved to a table for possibly better service. Cadence was lovely! ( A small mercy.. ) But kitchen needs to work on their timing & who I can only assume was a manager needs to work on his words. ( Telling us they ran out of bread & a won't be baking anymore just for us as it's a Sunday.. then coming back 5 min. Later only to have " found some bread " - odd. ) In all fairness the place is gorgeous. The oysters, bubbles, wine selection, Caesar salad, pizza & dessert were good! My main was a dud but they did comp it.. so credit due.. . Maybe a team meeting and better leadership will improve things.

    Very impressed. Was our 1st time at Heist. Lovely rooms and the service was excellent. Had the roasted veg salad, calamari, a pizza, and a chicken parm to share for 4 plus drinks and dessert. We'll be back for sure. Suggestion to have a purse/bag hanger at the tables that are not banquettes.

    I went for Mother's Day with my family, the service was excellent and the food was great!! For starters we tried the burrata, the scallops and the crab cakes special. For the main course my mother ordered the short ribs, my dad the branzino and I had the 12oz striploin. For dessert the chocolate mousse... we were all very happy when we left the restaurant.

    Everything was great! Food and service was highly enjoyable. An error on our salad order was quickly fixed and server offered a free dessert which was much appreciated. Only other note was that we were disappointed the Sundaylicious menu was not available as that was the reason we booked but everything was wonderful!

    I was surprised at how this restaurant - which I had never heard of (my wife and I are from out of town and stopped on our way to Toronto to take Aunt Louise and Uncle Ben for dinner - it was recommended by a friend) - exceeded quite significantly our expectations. My 85 years old aunt commented that the scallops were the best she had ever eaten in her life. What we all agreed sets this restaurant apart is the exquisite and personal service. Having many servers attend together to deliver all of our meals at exactly the same time was impressive - as was the quality of our server throughout the meal. Natural sunlight through the partial glass ceiling was also quite pleasant. A great dining experience. Ron

    This was one of the most beautiful restaurants we’ve enjoyed. From the moment you walk in & are greeted. To the moment you sit. The courtyard was stunning. Along with the rest of the restaurant. The food was very upscale but very enjoyable. We always order burrata. This was the first time I experienced it with apples. So delicious. The pasta & steak was phenomenal. Not to mention the service & our waitress who was very friendly & professional. We’ll definitely recommend to everyone! Thank you.

    Lovely waiter and atmosphere, but my salad was not very good and was rather small. The pomegranate seeds were not ripe. In addition I had beef tartare and it was okay, but not nearly what I had hoped for. My glass of Cabernet Sauvignon was very nice. I would recommend to a friend with cautions regarding ordering some items like the tiny salads.

    While the food was amazing and was a great spot for a date night, our waiter was quite clumsy and did spill a beer all over the table and onto me. We were not offered anything for the troubling experience. Mistakes do happen and I would return due to the fantastic food.

    Food, service and ambiance is incredible. Food and wine are very pricey but my meal was outstanding. Our group of 4, only had 1 person noted that the food wasn’t exceptional and it is at least $100 per person for a meal with wine and after appropriate tip.

    Had stopped in for a drink, a couple of weeks ago, had nice ambience, polite staff. Decided to come down for dinner in the dining room and stay the night in Kingston . The restaurant has a great ambience, the bar staff is fantastic, polite, and attentive. The dining room is beautiful, not too crowded, the staff once again were very attentive, but not overly, the food was great and just an overall great experience. Those of you were always worried about the cleanliness of the washrooms need not be, they are nicer than most people would have in their homes and as clean, if not cleaner.

    From the moment we arrived the manager welcomed us with such warmth. She remembers us from past visits which was lovely. We came for our anniversary and enjoyed each moment. Our server was wonderful and was attentive through our meal but not intrusive. Just the perfect amount of care. The food was wonderful as always. They provided some lovely additional touches of care during our visit which was much appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful time.

    Very good service, though server was somewhat reserved and distant. Excellent food. The side chicken was very tough and stringy and almost inedible but the lamp chop appetizer and scallops were fabulous! As well the fish, lamb shank and gnocchi. We really enjoyed our meal here. Glad we had a booth in the back.
