My husband and I went to Lavelle before The Royal Winter Fair with friends. It is located on the 15th floor and the view was spectacular. We got there right at sunset. Our waiter was friendly, informative and very accommodating. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I had the 8 oz steak and Fritz, my husband had the hen. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Good wine menu available. We had a lovely evening and will definitely return.

Great room. Beautiful view of the city. The food was very good. There was a menu change that was not reflected on the Web site. So we were disappointed that the pork belly was not on the menu. The new menu should have been on Web site. That's why 3 stars were given .

Restaurant was booked out for a function so had to eat at the bar. Food came out prompt but both salmon meals were riddled with bones. Didn’t finish the meals due to this. Had high expectations but didn’t have a good first experience. Probably may visit in the summer, but won’t come here for dinner as the menu had limited options

Overall is not a bad place for gathering and brunch! It's the service that we have a little problem with, we brought a cake to surprise our friend for his birthday, gave it to the waitress and told her, she told us there will be a services charge for cutting the cake and we said no problem! Few minutes later another person comes to the table and went right to the Bday boy and repeat about the service charge! We've gave her the hind and she keeps going on……… what a disappointment! Ruins the surprise! But they surprised us though
by charging us $45 plus tax to cut the cake!
(May be that's why they have to repeat themselves)

Food and atmosphere was amazing. I didn't stay afterwards as the outside bar wasn't open after 9pm due to bottle service in which when I called before hand they said we can purchase drinks from the bar afterwards.
Will not return for that reason.

The presentation of the food depicted some effort but it lacked flavours and substance. The Arctic char was okay nothing to rave about. I guess you go here for the ambiance not so much for the food.

The service we received at Lavelle was truly one of the worst I've experienced in Toronto. I was starving when we got there and ended up leaving only having drunk two glasses of wine. The waitress was very patronizing and slow, popular menu items were sold out and the food we did end up receiving was stale. I was still charged full price for my drinks and not offered anything else to replace the food I sent back. Ended up getting a hot dog from a street vendor after leaving the restaurant - which was delicious!

The view is great! It is the best place for drink at night. But the food is awful!! It’s just a very little piece. We have two people, so we ordered a extra pork belly! Really bad choice! It’s like eating pork oil. Taste disgusting! The duck breast and beef is tasteless. Do not order the food! It’s not worth it!!

the location of the restaurant/seating outside by the pools is great. Food was fine, nothing to write home about and the service was horrible. The wait staff is definitely hired for looks not brains. From not being able to recommend a cocktail to telling us that we could not order something that the table next to us did (for some reason) the service is why we will not be going back any time soon.

To be frank, the experience at Lavelle exceeded my expectations. I booked a table for my family for a casual Saturday dinner. The service and the food was great ( tho my husband says that the wine list is a bit overpriced in comparison with same wines at Yorkville restaurants). After dinner we decided to move to a bar for another few drinks. After having few bottles of Amarone at the dinner, I asked the bartender to get me a glass of cab. Bar wines were "so-so" or mostly table wines and frankly I could not even finish the glass. What really made a difference is that a bartender ( a very polite pleasant attitude girl, blond short hair) offered to change my glass of wine to "some better" wine and changed the plastic wine glass to the glassy one. Given that the bar was very busy, I was nicely surprised with a personal attention and service she provided. She really made the difference in my experience at Lavelle.
