    The place is beautiful, service and food could be better. The calamari was actually not good at all, which was very disappointing. I don't know what that was. It was hard and all batter. It was actually the worst calamari I have ever had and I like it and usually order at restaurants. The French fries was very basic. I had Ricotta pasta, nothing special. Based on the quality and taste of the food, we will not go back.

    Amazing food, service, ambience and a nice view of the CN Tower from our seatin area. A fantastic place to celebrate a special occasion, and our server remembered that my niece had just bought her wedding dress and brought out our shared dessert that said "She said yes" which was a nice touch. Will definitely be going back again.

    Very good atmosphere, vibes, and views. Service was too long, however the waitress was not keeping an eye on us or our needs. We waited on her quite a bit to return to our table. No gluten-free options for dessert except for gelato (which doesn’t count.)

    Experience overall was good - not a fan of the bartender’s technique with cocktails. Seemed like he didn’t mix them enough as some of our drinks were cold on top (because of the added ice cubes), but still room temp on the bottom. Great service and nice view, but for cocktails that are $24 each, I think it’s a fair expectation that they are mixed properly.

    I had a lovely time. It was my first experience at Kōst, and the ambiance and great service really sold it to me. The food was good, but it didn't really blow my mind. I'd come again for the great ambiance though, and the viewwww.

    The ambiance of KOST was fantastic and the food did not disappoint. The best part of our night was our server, she made all the different in the world. She took her time with us, provided us with the best service and was so friendly. We will be back in the summer to enjoy the outside patio.

    Good food. Priced a little high for what you get. Although the food is California inspired the California freshness is not there, and the flavors seemed to be lacking a bit. I did go during the winter, so maybe the food will be fresher in the summer.

    We made reservation 3 weeks in advance, and got the worst table in the restaurant for a birthday lunch… next to fire exit and forks/knives. The food was okay… My friend asked for no vegetables in her burger, but it came with lettuce and tomato. Why isn’t this stated in the menu as well? Service was very slow. Every time I’m coming to KOST, it’s not great and something always wrong. We aren’t picky, but come on.

    It was my moms 50th birthday and wanted the evening to be special. When we got there our seat wasn’t ideal.. so I had asked the hostess if it was possible to have a table with a view seeing as it was my mom’s special day! After two attempts she got us an amazing table with the view of the CN Tower. Couldn’t have been any happier with her willingness to help. The waitress we had was equally amazing; friendly, informative and even gave my mom a birthday dessert! The price was pretty decent considering we dined with 4 people and spent close to $300 including tip. Honestly thought I’d be spending more. Overall, I’ll be back :)

    Food was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. The Manhattan cocktails were delicious! The one sore point was that the background music was too loud! Thump,thump,thump all during the meal. Couldn’t hear ourselves talk. Very unpleasant. Would be a much pleasant dining experience without the music.

    The food tasted great and the beef was halal. However, despite having a reservation and available empty tables, they placed us in a table on the walkway across from the kitchen which was both dark and had poor furniture. Only after asking did they move us to the side with light and proper seating and views of the cn tower.

    Overall it was a lovely evening (NYE). I wish there was an option to secure a table by the window in advance, even at a surcharge, but it wasn't a big deal as the weather was good and we could go outside at midnight. The place was fun, the service was good and we the price of the well-made set menu was very reasonable. Pretty good choice for NYE for someone looking to actually have dinner and not just a bar.

    I chose this restaurant for my birthday and i did not regret going there. Such a beautiful place with an amazing view of the city from the rooftop. The service was attentive and professional. I ordered a cheesecake and I wanted it to be personalised for my special day and I got a lovely note on the plate. I really liked it.

    Food and cocktails fabulous as always. Server was helpful, but could have been more attentive. We waited quite awhile to order our second round of drinks. Was so glad we could pop outside onto the terrace, even though it was cold out. My family visiting from Australia really appreciated the view.
