Food was very tasty however we did feel quite rushed. Although we had a reservation, we had to wait while they worked out the covid checking (understandable). However, we found that we had to ask for coffee refills and felt rushed during our Sunday brunch. We hadn't been there an hour when the server offered to bring our bill. While that means food was delivered quickly, it did make us feel that we weren't welcome to enjoy a refill. Never did get water refills. The wait to get in wasnt even there when we left so I wasnt sure what was the rush!

The draw of the Christmas lights and holiday cocktails was what led us to spending our dinner this evening at Savoy - a festive cover-up for an underwhelming meal. The starter of Costco-esque baked brie and a ritz cracker charcuterie did not evoke the french connection you would expect from the country's capital. The cocktails, with festive names like Apple Cider Float and Rum Rum Rudolph, were a major letdown which led us to pay a 400% upcharge for a currently-available LCBO Chablis white wine. The disappointment continued with our main meals: including their holiday special ravioli, which was nothing special and could have done with more salt and pepper; a kale ceasar that had the chewability of carpet; and a steak salad whose meat required a minimum of 45 seconds to cut through each piece. We have to question why one of their signature dishes is a Beef Bourguignon; the dish contained more fat than meat, and really more fat than anything. The rest of the dish was made up of uncooked vegetables that have no place in a Bourguignon, and cold potatoes that cannot be warmed by an equally cold dish. Unsurprisingly, we did not make it to dessert and just asked for the bill. The only redeeming factor of the night was the service provided to us by our waiter whose joyful demeanor and playful conversation served as the highlight of the night. To no one's surprise, we will not be returning to Savoy, nor recommending it to anyone we know who is visiting the city.

Their holiday cocktail is soooo good. Our server was very polite and patient. The food was good . I just did fries and calamari with fried jalapeño . Very simple.
I’m contrast, The bar server was rude. I was taking a picture with their huge Christmas bear and I took my mask off for two secs for a picture which failed to take . So we took another one . He came to berate me about having my mask off. Although i’m double vaccinated . I was 6 feet away people. And i was just taking a quick picture. Meanwhile I saw other people walking from tables with no mask on. I don’t mind being asked to put my mask on but he talked to me in a condescending way which I didn’t approve.
However our main server was great. He offered to take pictures of us on the sleigh . Provide us with Christmas photo ops. My recommendation go for the Christmas spirit but stay away from the bar server .

My family visited from out of town and are pretty fussy with places. I wasn’t sure if they would enjoy this spot as much as I do, but I thought I would get them to try something new. Not only did they enjoy it, they absolutely loved the food, atmosphere and service.

I’ve often been to the Savoy over many years and always enjoyed it, with both food and service usually good.

On a recent visit I ordered a Niçoise Salad which I’ve done before and always liked. I was told the menu had changed and it was now served with smoked salmon instead of tuna. I asked that tuna be used and the salad arrived as a plate of mixed greens with slices of raw tuna on top, without green beans, potatoes,and grilled tuna of a classic Niçoise. When I mentioned this to the waiter, he brought a side plate of beans and potatoes.

So it all sounds trivial but either you know what a Niçoise salad is or you don’t and, in this case, the kitchen obviously didn’t. Nor did the waiter.
Sloppy and unprofessional for a supposed ´French Bistro’!

Three of us enjoyed our meals - mussels, lamb shank, lentil stew. Our friend who had tuna tartar found it so so. Great martinis- music a touch loud. Spacing was nice and we appreciated trust people weren’t sitting close to us. Great to be out in a restaurant.

Cream brûlée for dessert was one of the best I’ve had.
An overall great experience.

The food was delicious. The service was so so because they were not expecting such a big crowd on Remembrance Day but they did their best to serve us on time as we were on a schedule.
We will definitely be returning to try other meals.

Merci!

The lunch menu was varied and interesting and casual enough but not too much so to fit the brasserie naming well. Service was attentive but wasn’t rushed. Food was good and very fresh. I have been venturing into vegetarian food and chose the vegi burger served in a brioche bun. Delicious.

The Savoy has definitely improved with a new manager and chef! My friend and I were impressed. I had steak and frite and the food was very good. I am going back to try a few other dishes. The service was lovely, a great waiter and host. So all in all a place I would go back to and enjoyed myself very much at.

Only comment was that the online reservation app provided a link to a brunch menu that was out of date - hence the item that my friend wanted to eat was not available. Should update that link ? But the chef pulled through and made a "Meg Ryan" hold-this-add-that substitute which was very good (according to my friend).

My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays at lunch. I asked the waiter (Nathan) if there was any way the chef could make me steak tartare which is on the dinner menu. He thought as not too many people had arrived yet for lunch there could be a possibility and went to the kitchen with my request. My request was granted! Yippee! as it is a delicious entree. Being no foreign red or white wines by the glass, Nathan again went out of his way to find us wines that were satisfying. Best waiter ever! Can’t wait to go back!

The food was very underwhelming. A charcuterie platter was nothing more than supermarket cheese, salami and crackers. I expected cheese that was at room temp and had some flavour. The calamari was over salted and too chewy. The only decent dish was the scallops.
The cocktails were fine. Not special. And there was a lemon seed in mine.
Overall, meh.

The food was excellent - portions and price was very good. It just took way too long to get to us. I’m not sure what the issue was with that. We sat at a high table near the door and it was a chilly evening and we felt it. All of us had to put on our coats to eat dinner. But the food was excellent!
