Food was very flavourful ... but our cocktails were so disappointing. Even after we sent them back and had to be remade ... they were terrible.

We went to the Saturday all you can eat brunch to celebrate two birthdays. The food and desserts were fresh, well presented and overall delicious. The seafood bar was definitely the star of the show. To add to our experience, the entire team of staff were amazing. They were friendly, helpful and very attentive. The value for this experience was great and I recommend it to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion.

Service was very slow, there was a mixup with my order which then took another 10 minutes for me to get my meal while my 5 other tablemates food got cold. The food itself was okay. The ambience though was very nice.

The service was superb as it was professional but not uptight. The cocktails, ambiance and noice level was perfect for a Saturday evening. We dined on the Chef's Tasting menu, but unfortunately it felt more like a Prix Fixe. The dishes were nothing to write home about considering this would be considered fine dining. For us, the dessert was the best dish. Perhaps ordering from the traditional menu would have been a different experience.

Service was lovely. Food was good. Salad very soggy. Gnocchi was good but portion was tiny for 25 dollars. I left hungry. It is ok for fine dining if you aren’t hungry and don’t mind spending alot of money on an ok meal. Unlikely I would go back.

If i wanted to celebrate earth day i would have stayed home, i'm all for the earth and environment but when you pay $67.00 for a steak you want to see what your eating. candle light was beautiful and made great ambiance but really hard to enjoy the beautiful dishes in the dark. should have been told when making reservations and not when we were seated. other than that service was great, server was very knowledgeable and food was very good.

Toca was amazing, The place is really good for a date. Compared to our previous visit at Akira, the food here is Average. By the end of your meal you'd say there are better Italian places out there. The price for the food is moderate, Our bill came around 200$ without alcohol. The service was good, we felt as our server Amy was new to the place & was still learning but she is doing a pretty good job because she made sure she knew the menu really well & answer all our question's really well. The manager on the other end needs to make sure that he doesn't make faces or does any hand gestures to correct their servers. You could tell them about it in the kitchen or back office rather than in front of the guests because some guests like me, notice each & every detail. That is not a war zone, its a restaurant. Overall, It's a moderate restaurant that can have some changes to their menu to make sure it tastes better to the palette.

We dined at Toca on Saturday March 9.
We were so impressed by our server Leah and her team. Her menu knowledge, efficient and prompt service and engaging personality made the evening special and memorable. The food was splendid. Flavors and textures combined to sheer delight.

There was excellent value in the little extras like a complimentary sampling of gnocchi and mouthwatering desserts.

I would place Toca at the top of my list for a fine and fun dining experience in Toronto.
Great front and back of house! Well done Toca!

Just okay. Must have been short staffed. Could not get drinks to start and then could not get more water, pop or wine. Steak was medium well when asked for rare. The waitress was running around. It they had another woman in black that wandered and ignored everything we asked of her. Eventually asked for the Manager as really was not a good experience and even he would not come out. Did see another customer tell a him and then he was in the kitchen and would not come out. Just seemed very confused and a lot of things were just not right. Not up to the Ritz standards.
