    There was a building alarm, strobe lights and announcements that lasted about 20 minutes after I arrived, but the wait staff and manager explained that it was a false alarm and assured patrons that they were working to resolve it as soon as possible. I had the salmon papillotes, and the flavour married wonderfully with the vegetables with which they were cooked. I have been to Minami before and will enjoy returning. It was also a surprise that the manager circulated to ask if patrons subscribed to the Toronto Symphony or Mirvish Theatre, as they recently have partnered with those organisations to offer a discount to their patrons.

    The interior is beautiful, clean and the servers are soooo nice. The food though smallest portions at such a high price, I wish I could say it was delicious but unfortunately I can’t, tenderloin was dry. Loved the cocktails though and the dessert was good!

    We went on a Monday night so that might have helped with noise level. It was a nice ambiance for date night. the service was fast and the staff were nice and attentive. The BC tempura roll was very tasty. The Japanese Cheese Tart for dessert was a chef masterpiece of flavour combinations and the presentation was on point.

    So convenient if you are going to a Mirvish play on King St and the food was amazing. The service was also wonderful. The waitress missed that were were sharing 2 appetizers, so they should have arrived at the table before the 1 appetizer that we were not sharing - that was the only thing I wish they had done differently.

    This was our first time to this Restaurant and Justin(our server) was very good in explaining how the Sushis and the Sashimis work. We found it a little noisey as the restaurant filled. We enjoyed the culinary experience and would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends for any occasion.

    The service was really great, forgot the name of our server but she was fantastic. She even explained to food to us which doesn’t happen a lot now. The interior of the restaurant was so beautiful! And lastly, the food. We went for lunch and all the food that we ordered were VERY VERY VERY delicious! Will come back for dinner next time cause they have more options in their dinner menu. The only downside is parking. There was no green P parking near (walking distance) the restaurant and for 2 hrs we paid $20.50

    We had a lovely evening in spite of customer service. We ordered a bottle of wine which was not received. We sat and waited in what seemed forever since our server was no where to be seen. Our food arrived and instantly so did our wine. That’s a first. Would of loved to enjoy a drink prior. The food was pretty good. I didn’t care for the yellowtail. It lacked flavor. Overall nice and probably will go back to give them another chance.

    waitress seemed attentive but apparently wasn’t listening. We asked multiple times for ice and our drink. Yellowtail Oshi was overpowered by jalapeño and without it, quite tasteless. The Confit Tuna Roll was very good. The Brussel Sprouts were outstanding.

    Food was prepared with details and delicious. We went with a newborn baby on stroller, which I had communicated and asked for a corner table when I made reservation, also had advised the occasion was birthday. The table was not reserved to accommodate the stroller. They showed me a few options and we ended up in a low table in the middle. There was no special service for birthday so not sure why I had to select the occasion. We ordered a Cocktail Buena Vista without checking the price. Turned out it was $42! The presentation was entertaining but definitely not worth the price. Should have warned us. Overall the food was tasty but experience was average.

    We orderd the Chef's Tasting Menu and wine/sake pairing. The food, pairings, and presentation were superb. It took 2 hours to go through all four courses and we were incredibly satisfied with that length of time. We never felt like we were waiting for the next course. It was all well timed. It allowed us to enjoy every sip and bite. Our waiter was very curteous, but not very engaging, and didn't have much knowledge about what we were eating or drinking, other than telling us what we already knew from the menu. However, another member of the staff, who was managing the floor, enhanced our overall experience. They were very attentive, not only to us, but also to the others, and made polite conversation with us a couple times.

    This is a great restaurant to meet for a drink or two and have the odd small plate, because the food really is delicious. If you want a meal though, I don't think I can recommend. As a lot of reviews mention, the portions are both small and light. Our table ran $150+ per person and I certainly wouldn't say we walked out feeling full. You go here for the presentation and the flavour, not the portions.

    The place is very accessible with or without a car. It's a 5 min walk from St. Andrew station and very easy to find. The staff is very friendly and helpful and every dish they bring they tell you the name of the dish and what it is made from as they serve it which was nice. Service was excellent: Fast, friendly and knowledgeable The presentation was beautiful and the food taste was great.. You might not like some of the food but it tastes good regardless.

    It would be convenient to open at 11:30am especially for people that are going to the Theatre like the Princess of Wales across the street from the restaurant as it is necessary to be at the Theatre by 1:20to get through the crowd for a 1:30 show. It would be nice to have sake, warmed and served in small pitcher along with the smaller cups.
