Food and environment very good but service was sadly very sub-par. Everyone can have a bad day so we will chalk it up to that. Waitress was very inattentive and un-engaging which put a big damper on the night. We felt like we were not important. Did not seem to be anyone in charge that was overseeing things to make sure customer service was at the level it should be for that kind of restaurant. Too bad because alot of money was spent to make this place night and it is but if the experience of going there is not positive people won't return.

Service was fantastic. Started with the beef carpaccio, calamari, and beet salad. Delicious. I personally had the lamb ragu linguine which is superb. My friends had pizza, branzino and mushroom ravioli. Plates were cleared. The food is excellent. I’m 100% going back.

The food was just good, a plate of italian sausage was very spicy that one of us could eat it at all. I didn't found the waitres nice, so I didn't enjoy the service. My husband doesn't eat vegetables so he asked to replace the veggies for something else so they put another portion of potatoes so basically the plate was a piece of salmon an tons of potatoes. I explicitly said in my reservation that was my son's birthday, they didn't mention any at all or even a dessert for him. Not bad but I don't think I will be back there

I had previously went and loved the food so I decided to come back for my Birthday with my family. Maybe it was an off night or something, but the food wasn’t as good. Half of my family didn’t eat their food and the other half ate it, but didn’t love it. The restaurant was empty which was surprising but okay, it was quiet.
I would recommend it, but I have mixed feelings at this point! Lovely waitress and staff.

The atmosphere is good and the food fantastic. I had the mushroom and truffle ravioli and it was terrific. The risotto was pretty good too, but not nearly as good as the pasta. The waiters were both friendly and helpful. Overall, I'd recommend Ovest.

Our son lived on King W for three years. Before a recent trip to Toronto we asked him what restaurants he would recommend. He said, “You must go for dinner to Ovest Cucina!” Six of us went for dinner and we were so glad we did. Ambiance, food, service, and noise level were all perfect for a social evening of fun with family from San Diego and Chicago. We can’t wait to enjoy Ovest Cucina on our next reunion!

I really liked this place. They have a good menu, maybe a few more options as it classifies itself as a wine bar. Good location and staff was very welcoming.

We were pleasantly surprised. Great decor and ambiance. Service superbe and the food to DIE FOR. So many good choices and options. And of all the selections we made, we enjoyed every single one and portions were really large.

Significant delays in getting our food, even our starter, which did not require any cooking. In fact the cheese was very cold, clearly straight rom the fridge.
Pasta and pizza were very tasty, but salmon and vegetables were drenched and soggy. There were a couple large groups in the restaurant, but the restaurant was not full. I think if things were going to be delayed, we should have been offered a glass of wine, another starter, or something, to acknowledge this issue, and keep us happy.
I liked the layout of the restaurant and the ambience, but service and kitchen delays need to be addressed.
Would try it again, for a second chance, but one of our group would not.

We were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Added the note to our reservation and were looking forward to a lovely night. When we arrived, there was no acknowledgment of our anniversary note in the reservation so that was a little disappointing. Food was fantastic! Service overall was a little slow but pleasant. After our dessert we waited almost 20 minutes for our bill before I had to go and ask someone for it. Our server and everyone was distracted by 3 large tables and a couple of "favorites" tables. It was disappointing given it is usually a wonderful evening out.

Came for my daughters bday on recommendation from neighbours.
Can't believe we didn't come earlier.
The decor is spectacular.
We all felt the food was better than our 25 yr staple (terroni).
All dishes were very well prepared and flavourful. The hot sauce i asked for was fantastic (and very very hot).
Lots of excellent, reasonably priced wines (40-60).
I had heard prices were high but portions were large. I didnt find the prices that out of line with the other Italian places we eat at in the neighbourhood. Thr burrata seemed very cheap compared to other places. And the portions were definitely large. All 4 of us had take home breakfasts.
We'll be regulars.
