Absolutely outstanding experience. The Butcher Chef offers a warm and inviting ambience, impeccable and knowledgeable servers, and the best steaks I have ever eaten. It was definitely an unforgettable experience.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Michael and team have made an intimate and personal experience where you feel like your the only client in the restaurant. The PEI ribeye was perfectly cooked and delicious, best steaks in the city. Will definately be back really soon.

This is truly a new gem in Toronto. It’s great for all occasions. The service was great and of course the food presentation was amazing. Can’t wait to go back with all my friends.

The food flavors were underwhelming. One of my guests ordered the dover sole and was told that it would be deboned and ready to eat. They had bones in every bite and could not eat much of it. It also took 2 and a half hours to get our mains. The staff were polite but it did not make up for the lack of food quality.

We had a great time celebrating my birthday. The staff was courteous and attentive. The menu is fantastic with some creative surprises as far as preparation and presentation. My wife really enjoys cooking and found a lot of joy in the small details. All in all a great experience at one of Toronto’s newest fine dining spots, we’re looking forward to going back!

Outstanding food. They are new and I would say service was a little slow. That said, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

Good was great. Service was great. My one and only complaint was for the size of the wine pours we had with our tasting menu.

If you are looking for a fine dining experience with seasoned staff and a brilliant chef then this is probably a good place to start.

Was here with some work friends for a night out and individuals ranged from adventurous to picky. We all went with the tasting menus and nothing in the 7 courses turned anyone off.

The food was expertly prepared and the tastes were on par with some of the best restaurants I have visited internationally. Service was almost perfect but that could be just working out the kinks. Very knowledgeable on the dishes and the wines being served and welcoming when we had questions.

Atmosphere was warm and inviting and being such a small place it was not claustrophobic and felt bigger than its size.

I would recommend if you are looking for excellent fine dining experience and great wine selections.

It was pricy but leaving satisfied with the experience made this place worth visiting again.

Amazing experience the staff was incredible the food was to die for .... the tasting menu was so good and you get to experience it all. The bar is an old time feel that takes you back in time and the experience is amazing ... the staff really tries to meet all your needs and while i was there Robel knew the whole menu and had great recommendations and Christos was the manager and made great drinks behind the bar... Addy, who was also a bartender knew what cocktails would be good after a full meal... overall the experience and staff made the evening so much better. Definitely worth a visit

We visited this new boutique size restaurant on opening night. Was spectacular. Has à la carte menu as well as an amazing tasting menu. Steak, seafood and wild game was our choice this evening but will be back for the tasting menu. Exceptional service and food. Highly recommended especially if your heading downtown for a sports game or concert at the Scotia Bank Arena as it is very close. Bonus is there is parking right in the building which was convenient. Well done to the team.
