This was one of the absolute best dining experiences I’ve had in Toronto. I say dining experience specifically, because this was more than just a meal. The TOCA team goes above and beyond to make their time with you memorable. Our server Amy was incredible, I couldn’t have asked for someone more kind and thoughtful to attend to us. The Ritz Carlton, simply put, is luxury at its finest. Follow my Instagram @victoriacoretti to see highlights of our meal. Ps do the chefs tasting menu, you will thank me later.

Toca never disappoints. My husband and I have made this our anniversary spot and love it every time. Felix who we've had the last couple times we've been there is amazing, attentive, and knowledgable. We now feel like home coming to Toca. This year they surprised us with a specialized card signed by the staff - it was such a treat. We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for an exquisite dining experience. Thank you to everyone that made our night special! :)

A return trip with a good friend. This time we tried the chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. As always the food and service was excellent. Only comment was that while the wines were delicious that was a bit overpriced. Would likely order a bottle next time.
Look forward to another visit next time I’m in Toronto

We went with the chef tasting menu and were disappointed overall as we found it to be very basic for a high end restaurant. We do make a habit to go to high end restaurants for special occasions this place would be on the bottom of the list.

The staff at TOCA were more than willing to accommodate my wife, myself and our 10 month old daughter. We were visiting from
Georgia. The restaurant decor was modern and sophisticated. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and upbeat. The food was amazing. We especially loved the ravioli, Gigli, and Branzino! The creme brûlée is a must have.

I would not recommend Toca for brunch. The food was good, but no better than any other brunch spot of a certain level. To justify the price one would have to eat and drink themselves into a stupor. For the same price you could have an exceptional meal at many other places.

We attended Summericious lunch at TOCA. Food was not as good as we'd expected but acceptable. We thought the salad was oddly just plain lettuce. The main dish was just a piece of fish. An added bit of vegetable and side like potato or rice felt needed. The desert was delectable but tiny. In summary it all felt like child proportions as we were still a bit hungry afterwards.
All this aside, we must say TOCA has a wonderful relaxing ambience. And we must highlight that the service and staff were absolutely exceptional. All were attentive, kind, friendly, and highly professional. They fully made up for any shortcomings in our adventure to TOCA.

Must say for the first time ever after more than 2 dozen visits to TOCA we were not thrilled with the kitchen. Our meal was served within 1 minute from the time we finished our appetizers. When we advised the restaurant manager his answer was that is the way they serve unless otherwise advised. I know for a fact based on our many prior visits that is simply not true.
The food as usual was wonderful.

Booked reservations for my boyfriend’s birthday and I was blown away! From the food to the service to the ambience it was truly reflecting of fine dining Italian culture and the Ritz Carlton. I enjoyed my lobster gigli made with fresh pasta and the panna cotta for dessert was perfect! My server did take a while with the bill but otherwise everything was amazing, 5 stars!

We were celebrating a birthday. The food and service was excellent. The one down side was that we were seated next to two tables with babies. The continual screaming was overwhelming at times and took away from our experience. I would suggest putting tables with babies apart from each other to somewhat reduce the noise in one section.
