My son took me here for my birthday, and I was stunned. The atmosphere, the food, the service were all top notch. The best brunch I've ever had and that includes brunch at The Ritz in Seoul, South Korea. An experience I'll never forget. Thank you for a memorable experience.

Food experience has been average here lately. Not good enough for what you’re paying! The menu is not unique

We toured the "cheese cave." We made it out alive. With cheese. Awesome! Great service, wonderful food.

Not very Italian (pasta overcooked, parmesan cheese with the amatriciana), but somehow pleasurable. Good wine list with some interesting labels (weak on the spirits). Service quite distracted in general (it was difficult to attract the attention when needed) but we made it. Nice atmosphere.

My boyfriend was visiting out of town from Seattle and I wanted to treat him to a wonderful brunch. Toca at the Ritz-Carlton stood out as one of the top restaurants in the area and it surely lived up to expectations.

There was no delay in the seating process, we were welcomed immediately and familiarized with the buffet brunch proceedings with ease. Our server Henok, was brilliant, friendly, and made us feel at home with his excellent service.

I will definitely return with my girlfriends, and this place is highly recommended for anyone who is in need of a good brunch venue in the downtown core.
Thanks Toca. Cheers

Without any shadow of a doubt, this is the best brunch in the city.

Great value for the entirely unlimited nature of the meal option.

Staff are highly attentive and committed to ensuring a great customer experience.

The food is delicious and fresh.

Be sure to book well in advance as it is super popular.

Overall a very nice experience. I took my Fiance out for his birthday before going to the matinee at the princess of wales theater. The server was friendly and quick with bringing drinks and suggestions on what to try next. My only complaint was our after brunch coffee was burnt and we were expecting a larger charcuterie and cheese selection.

Always fantastic from start to finish! One of our favourite restaurants because of the total experience. Service is attentive and friendly, food is spectacular, ambiance is relaxing and elegant, yet still kid friendly. It is a pleasure for both parents and children.

Phil, the Sous Chef, was very kind in arranging a tasting menu for us upon arrival, consisting of a burrata, lobster and tomato salad, ravioli a la Norma, lamb chops in a Puttanesca sauce, and a wonderful chocolate dessert. Epic!

An amazing lunch, from the food to the service. The RC actually called to confirm our booking, we were half/hour early, no concern. We were allowed to sit at our table until the lunch service began. If you are looking for a pre threatre restaurant I would highly recommend TOCA. I had originally booked DEQ, but changed to TOCA at the last minute, good move.

I love Toca. Every time we’ve been, the experience is amazing. Food is incredible (albeit a bit on the smaller serving side), but the service here is just impeccable.

I’d definitely go back especially on special occasions.

Two of us had the seafood bisque dish as our main. The dish - two medium scallops, two small mussels and a small piece of fish all in a sauce -was very tasty but small for the price. It should have included at least another scallop and two more mussels. And a somewhat larger piece of also would have been welcomed also.

We have dined at Toca before and loved the experience. The last time we went all out with a cheese tasting menu, as well as a dinner tasting menu with wine pairings. The whole experience is a must. This time around we wanted to be more selective and decided to select our own dinner entries etc. The experience again was perfect to say the least. They took my note of being our first wedding anniversary and made sure everyone from the moment we stepped in front on the hostess to the busboys congratulated us and made it special. If you want to feel special and have an amazing dinner this is the place to be.
