The food didn’t taste good at all. I ordered a burrata and the tomatoes didnt even taste like tomatoes. My friend ordered a tartare and it was horrible didnt even tasted like food at all. the view is super overrated but at least the waitress was nice.

We are so happy we chose to eat at KOST. The view was amazing! We really enjoyed the pasta with the pine nuts as well as the steak. The staff was very sweet and attentive, and made our anniversary one to remember! We can't wait to visit again.

The patio was closed so we couldn’t really go outside to enjoy the view. The food was okay, not really something to write home about. Their breakfast menu doesn’t have much of a variety either.

We had an amazing time at KOST. It was our third time there and as always the customer service was 10/10. But this time we were seated very close to other couples which was not perfect as we could hear other people’s conversations to our left and right and they could hear ours.

Tha waiter had a mask that would not stay on his face properly. His nose was exposed most of the time. I would appreciate that the staff wear proper fitting masks.

The disappointment was when we came down to enjoy the Christmas celebration, two things we experienced:

1. Below the safety guideline: the number of people was much more than the 50% capacity as the public health and safety requirement under the omicron situation. We were sitting at a table next to both sides of people, 2-3 feet away.

2. Christmas Eve has no hind of festive or celebration ambience anywhere in the restaurant. No lights, no decorations….why were we spent extra on a holiday menu at all?

Food was great (as usual), service was a bit iffy. Hostess was excellent, waiter and bus-boy were a mix of overly present and disappearing for lengthy (>15 minute) periods. Not enough attention to social distancing, tried to seat adjacent tables in a 50% capacity setting. And obviously the view is stellar. Hopefully those issues are a one-off, not what I'm used to seeing at Kost!

Very average ambiance. Nothing special for the price tag they have on food. Even the quantity is very less. Less than other 5 star hotels in Toronto I have been too. At least they have the decor and ambiance that you get to enjoy. But at Kost it was like sitting in a canteen. It was good for brunch in summer but for dinner night is a big NO for anyone who is coming to enjoy the ambiance.

Food and service were very average and not worth the premium charges. The location and views are spectacular.. however for the prices charged the food and service were not commensurate. May return for drinks and dessert but definitely not for a full meal..

2nd anniversary with my friend. Julia (Yulia) was an excellent server. She was busy with multiple tables but was able to attend us quite well. There was also a mixup with the eggs benedict where the egg was hard boiled instead of medium boil that my partner asked for. Our server and the chef fixed that up for us. Overall it was good although I think the green chorizo lacked flavour and should have been the star of that dish. The fries and chipotle were excellent and so were the passion fruit mimosas. We also have the tomatoe tartine and that freshness of the heirloom tomatoes was outstanding. We also had tres leches brought out to us for our 2nd anniversary which was delicious and much appreciated.

This was my first time here and it did not disappoint. The staff were very personable and welcoming. My friend and I chose to come here to reunite as we hadn’t seen eachother in awhile. Drinks and food were great and definitely made our gathering that much special. We both had the Avocado and Pineapple salad and it was delicious! Get the small plate it is the perfect size and filling! We shared the fries and still couldn’t finish it, very generous portion and delicious! Drinks were tasty and everything was priced appropriately. I will certainly be coming back in the summer when patios open!

We had a lovely time brunching at KŌST. The interiors are beautiful, especially on a sunny day. Some of the decor could use a bit of dusting though.

The KŌST Breakfast was a decent take on a traditional breakfast spread. The Coconut Pancakes come in a generous portion - definitely one of the better-valued items on the menu. However, considering the price point, it was disappointing to see them topped with what appeared to be canned fruit.

The seating arrangement is quite tight. We were seated next to a table that had a lot of complaints and demanded several requests from the staff, which was both amusing and uncomfortable at the same time.

Service was fast, and the staff was incredibly nice. That, along with the gorgeous view, would be the highlight of our experience.

Ambiance is amazing with that view, but it was so busy in there the waiters were always bumping into our seats and bringing the wrong dishes over for us (it happened 3 times!) also, we had very dirty cups for our earl grey tea... there were dirt marks inside and the dishes looked poorly washed. Our poached eggs were overcooked and they didn't ask about any allergies/food restrictions. Our waitress was wearing a very VERY short skirt, so short that we saw her thong and razor bumps when she bent over to serve the table beside us hahahaha that was definitely reflected in her tip!! The DJ looked hungover and annoyed and the rooftop door was open a lot so it got cold fast. Overall, would go back for a special occasion but not weekly for a nice relaxing brunch, too hectic.
