    Always a treat to dine at May! We ordered Scallops, Parisian Gnocchi and Beef Flank Steak, each with its own exquisite flavors. For dessert, the Almond Yogurt Cake was a hit - warm and light. And the Strawberry Chocolate Mousse which May gifted us was a delight! Our server was exceptional - attentive and gracious. It was a pleasure chatting with him when he came around. Thank you, May!

    Food and server were great. The ambiance was very quiet as there wasn't more than 10 people in the resteraunt at 6pm on a Friday! The hostess had a ton of skin showing as my children pointed out.

    I had the pulled chicken risotto. It was creamy and comforting with a touch of earthiness from the mushrooms and flashes of brightness from the cherry tomatoes. An excellently composed dish.

    Some dishes were excellent, some we OK. Service not good as we received our first drink order after our first course. A couple of us had the Rodney Strong cab. One was a 9oz glass for $20 which is reasonable. We decide to order a bottle. Price comes to $155 for the bottle. Turns out the server changes the RS from Sonoma cab to Rockaway cab without saying anything to us. Still decides to charge us anyway. Very underhanded. I would suggest to May management when one of your servers has a very large table to dedicate one server to that table so the smaller tables do not suffer for it. Will not return.

    I brought my 2 young girls for their first fine dining experience. May is perfect because all of the dishes are designed to share. I would have ate my way through the entire menu if I could have. We ordered 4 dishes one of which was the bread so I wouldn't waste a single morsel on my plate. Amazing.

    I don’t often write reviews whether they are good or bad, but I feel compelled to say something about this delightful a restaurant May. It’s a wonderful atmosphere with lots of natural light from the floor to ceiling windows; a comfortable yet contemporary style. Lots of room to not feel as if you’re sitting right beside strangers and not too noisy that you can’t have enjoyable conversation. The service is a top-notch and falls in line with fine dining service. The menu is not extensive but the options available are all absolutely delicious. On this last occasion that I visited they had run out of one of my favourite items on their menu,the steak tartare. To make up for that Chef came out with a special order just for us. WHAT EXCELLENT SERVICE!! Thank you to the May and it’s wonderful staff that helped contribute to an enjoyable evening. Also thank you for keeping your kitchen open later than most, it’s hard to find a place to go after an event in the city that will still serve such divine food and drinks

    We love May but please be careful with the music for evening dining. This last Friday night, the patrons were mostly of a "certain age" and yet, rap was the music in the background. Take care with the playlists!

    The four scallops were very well cooked but it should have been a bit more for the price. Ie salad or rice/potatoes. The chocolate mousse flavour was nice but it has the strangest grainy texture. The sorbet was very good

    Both service and food at May were a delight. The scallops were yumm, caramelized crisp on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside. And the flank steak was flavorful and plentiful. Huge thanks to our server Ashley whose friendly disposition and recommendations made for a pleasant evening.

    The cocktails were great! The food was good but the steak tartare had too many ingredients so you couldn’t really appreciate the beef. There was avocado in the dish which it didn’t say on the menu.The Grilled raw tuna also had too many ingredients. Not enough sauce for tuna. Squash Gnocchi was good and our guests said they enjoyed the salmon.

    Lunch at May was a delight! I had dined at May before and came looking for my favorite dish, only to discover that they had changed the menu. Apparently they do that periodically. At first I was disappointed, then decided to take the opportunity to try something new. Picked the Sandwich of the Day (Pork) with a Green Salad. Delicious! The pork was tender and full of flavour. My companion went with the Chicken Risotto and enjoyed it, but on sampling the pork, agreed it had more flavour. Our server was welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend May!

    Food was great - tasty and nice size portions. NIce variety of food. Table service good. Washrooms needed attention - no tp, paper towels; litter on the floor etc. I told them it was my dinner companion's birthday and IF they didn't order desert to please still bring desert (and to add it to my bill). They said they would but when desert time came and she didn't order desert they just brought the bill. I was very disappointed with that but didn't want to say anything in front of my dinner companion.
