    Over the top wonderful location and decor, great service, excellent food, best views of the city and the lake… I could go on praising this place, the people and the food that made my 70th birthday celebration most memorable! My friends were so inspired by our experience that they’re now planning to have their wedding anniversary here at Köst as well! Köst has helped me feel proud again to be a Torontonian!

    Placed at a table near the kitchen after making a reservation and promised a great view of Toronto for a birthday. Steak flavour average but cooked nice. Brocolli great. Salmon average. Carrots bland and undercooked. Beet dish amazing. Waiting staff super nice and accommodating. Music too LOUD with terrible music - unable to converse. Appreciated the complimentary cake. Best ambience was walking in Bish hotel lobby. Overall underwhelming and not worth the price for what we experienced.

    Ambiance on the patio was quiet and beautiful on a sunny afternoon day overlooking the skyline and downtown Toronto. The lobster toast and “Golden Green” cocktail for brunch were absolutely delicious. And our server, Allison, was super friendly, personable, and provided great customer service. Have already recommended Kost to friends!

    We usually go for dinner once a year but decided to try lunch this time. The chicken and waffles were amazing and the lobster toast was as well. Staff was amazing as usual. If you have a chance, dine outside. The views are superb!

    I had breakfast at Kost Restaurant where the service was good and the food decent. However, we were initially denied outdoor seating due to wet seats, but shortly after, others were seated outside. This inconsistency was frustrating and marred an otherwise nice dining experience.

    We had an amazing experience on a Saturday night, got seated on a high table by the window with a great view, the Californian Pinot Noir we had was good choice, as well the tuna tartare and scallops, that I highly recommend. The service was great, with Mitch taking care of us. Although it was a bit chilly outside, we spent some time having our drinks by the sofa with the fantastic CN tower view. Inside the music is loud, so not the best to chat, but it brings nice vibes. Summer with the windows open must be astonishing.

    We have dined here often and it's our go to as it is consistently very good. Usually we try to dine here before going to a Jays game as they can accommodate the time line. Our meal once again did not disappoint. We had the fried cauliflower, beef tacos, beet salad and the salmon. Servers were friendly as well as attentive.

    We generally enjoyed our visit - the view is spectacular. I was a little disappointed that despite mentioning in both the reservation, and when we arrived, that it was my friend's birthday, there was absolutely no acknowledgement of it. We sat outside and it was a little cool and we waited a long time particularly near the end of the visit to get our bill, and when i wanted to order another glass of prosecco for my friend. In fact, we had to get up and go inside to finally have to pay the bill as we could not wait any longer. So, generally speaking, we didn't feel particularly well taken care of, but other than that it was fine.

    My exp outstanding menu, accommodated early, manager well dressed, it rained a bit and we sat down and was told oh you can’t sit outside we have no servers! Did we need to Know this. No. They had switched servers and the second servers didn’t know what he had ordere. Your uniforms are terrible and are not classy and reflect a drive thru attire. Way too classy to have those poor uniforms !

    The view is beautiful, the servers were great. However the food was terrible. We ordered the beef tacos. There was no flavour, the meat felt was tough and chewy. I also ordered the Korean fried cauliflower, this was not crispy, Was soggy and not at all how it should taste. Would not recommend - only good thing about this place was the view food is not it.

    The food was tasty, the ambience and view to Toronto tower and high-rises was great. However, they serve the main dishes even before we finished the starter! That wasn’t appropriate for a semi-fine dining restaurant! Both starter and main dishes were served super quick as I felt like they want to shorten our time spending on the table! That wasn’t a nice experience! Although this is a major difference between dining in North America and Europe! In North America you can’t really enjoy relaxed dining without constantly being asked by waitress(es) if we want more food/drink! The music was so loud that we barely could hear each other’s voice. There were many loud table around us, which it wasn’t a surprise as the music was loud and everyone needs to speak load! Overall, I go back to place during day time to enjoy the balcony seat! But not for the service!

    We had an 8am reservation on a Sunday morning. It was a lovely atmosphere. We appreciated being able to go out on the deck and get pictures of the fantastic views. And most of all, the food was delicious with obvious attention to detail. The coconut pancakes were delicious.

    We had the best time at KOST! I requested for a corner table and they did sit us at the best corner table ever. The vibe was really nice and the server made sure that we are well accommodated!! Little bit on the pricier side but we actually got full at the end of the night so id say it was worth it!
