The view cannot be beaten and the grapefruit mimosas were amazing. The food was just okay, nothing too exciting really so if you're looking for a place for the food only, maybe find another spot.

We came to celebrate my daughter’s big achievement and the restaurant met our expectations. Everyone was very attentive, starting from a host , to our server and the manager, who came to talk to me while we were waiting for my daughter at the table. The food was really good and they even brought a nicely decorated cake for my daughter! First time there and definitely will come back!

Excellent experience. I will go back for sure.
Nice welcome, great service, great food.
The floor manager asked about the dessert and because I said was so so, he decided to took it off of the bill. I was pleasantly surprised.

I went for brunch and the food was good. I loved the coconut pancakes. Potatoes were nice but could use some sauce. The flow is not great at all. You can barely squeeze out of the elevator once you’re on the 44th floor. I watched a staff member squish himself into the elevator because the door was shutting and not opening up for him. The host stand should move so people can move ahead so as to get everyone off the elevator. The service was not great. My server forgot about my espresso, didn’t refill our waters and wasn’t particularly attentive. The furniture - specifically the white couches are dirty. You see how black they are on the bottom. The mat looks raggedy. I’d go somewhere else for brunch.

All staff were welcoming and very helpful. The menus had some great options. We ate the calamari and tomatoe salad for appetizer and the Branzino and peppers for dinner. Great wine but was a little pricey - could offer less espensive options for wine. Great experience all around and would go again.

I have mentioned I wanted to celebrate birthday and preferred a window table. They ignored both requirements. I noticed there were a lot available tables, but the waitress just lead us to a random one. I brought a birthday cake, the waiter told us that we couldn’t bring the outside food to the restaurant. My friends came all the way from New York, I tried to welcome her and celebrate her birthday in a nice restaurant . However, the things didn’t work out well, I felt really embarrassed about arranging this meal .

Host and server were outstanding. Personable, knowledgeable and gave excellent advice regarding food and drink pairings - the Barolo Chinato with chocolate was amazing for dessert. Everything is intended for sharing, which is great, but to be honest the "large" share plates are about right for the average relatively hungry eater and the "small" share plates are appetizer size so you can be antisocial and order for only yourself if you want. The view is great when the skies are clear.

Kōst is an amazing brunch spot to which we will definitely return! The great laid back atmosphere (held up even on a busy Saturday afternoon), the friendly and attentive service (my friend had several allergies which they accommodated seamlessly) as well as the gorgeous and tasty food was a great start to the weekend. Thank you, kōst team!!

I brought my mom to KOST for her birthday, specifically for lunch! The food was amazing, and the service was super quick as well. We had to wait a bit for a table closer to the window but it was worth the wait when we did get it (would highly recommend making a table preference request if you can). Overall the light and modern feel of the restaurant combined with the amazing views of the city and CN Tower make it a must check out spot in the city! For the location and views they offer I would also say it’s quite decently priced, and meal portions are average sized. They were even so kind to decorate the plate when we ordered a small cake! Perfect place for a celebration or simple outing with friends! Would highly recommend KOST and their friendly staff.
