    Went to kōst for our first anniversary. We’d only gone during the summer and sat by the pool and it’s always super busy so we were surprised to go in November and find it half empty. Very quiet. Food is always good. Husband and I had been dreaming of the spicy tequila rigatoni and tres leches cake. Delicious as always. Very small portion of pasta though. Drink menu had been switched for the winter. I think the cheapest drink on there was $23. But I guess we’re paying for the location. Not the drinks/food. Our waitress was super kind and friendly. Also, when making the reservation. I noted specifically that this was an anniversary dinner. There was no mention of that or anything special. Not sure why they have a space to put in special request/occasion if they’re not going to do anything about it. I thought there’d be a mention or a free drink or cake. Anything. Was a bit let down. To be honest I’d rather go to cactus club where they write out happy anniversary/birthday on your dessert plate

    Great service! Isaiah was our server and he was very friendly, and accomodating. My fiancée and I went there to celebrate our engagement. The staff were friendly, the service was fast, the atmosphere was wonderful for a celebration. And of course, the food was great. We ordered the Spanish octopus, spicy tequila rigatoni and Korean fried cauliflower. It was wonderful and we will be going back!

    Great view and service but there were 3 (obviously hungover professional) men dropping fbombs and yelling at each other, instead of plain old talking, at a nearby table. They were never asked to pipe down and there were kids under 8 in the restaurant. Breakfast was pricy. The chicken and waffles was amazing but they need to use REAL maple syrup. My Kost breakfast was ok. My eggs over medium were over hard, and the toast has a charred/burnt taste as it’s not done in a traditional toaster, rather on open flame. Not a fan of the new potato cubes. The croissant and preserves were to die for. All in all, a lovely setting and impeccable service, but the food was just ok.

    I went for my birthday for a brunch, they put us on a very nice spot with the view of CN, I loved it! Nice time with my girls, very quiet (1.30pm my reza on a saturday) Food on restaurant are recently very expensive (in my opinion) but this rooftop was quiet fine, not overpriced and it was good.

    Kost is a beautiful restaurant with gorgeous decor and wonderful views. However, for the price of the food, the quality was very disappointing. Short Rib Eggs Benedict is described as being short rib, mushroom ragout on a crispy potato pancake when in reality I was served a couple of spoonfulls of luke warm meat, not a mushroom to be found on a fried prepackaged hash brown. Very disappointing.

    The view was spectacular, but the food itself wasn't anything amazing. We got calamari and a few drinks as a late night snack. It was enjoyable, but you're definitely paying for location and the view as opposed to fine dining quality food.

    The chicken tacos and calamari were amazing, great appetizers. I got the Salmon for my main and I didn’t really like it, the fish itself was good and cooked well but I didn’t like anything else that came with the dish, the potatoes, carrots and there was some sauce that I didn’t find appetizing

    Coffee was good, juice was ok. Great view of the city. Forgot hummus on my toast but gave me a side of it. Server tried their best but could have used some more help for how busy they were. The girl at the front desk in the lobby was not helpful at all with valet or directions. She was off putting and not exactly a good first or last impression. I think they need to step it up a notch if they want to be this luxurious, high end hotel and restaurant. It was a one and done experience for me.

    Amazing experience dining at KŌST! Both my friend and I agreed we would go back in a heartbeat. We tried the Smoked Turkey BLT w/fries, the KŌST Burger w/fries, and shared the Tres Leche for dessert. Everything from the food, to the atmosphere, to the service was impeccable!

    The service was decent, nothing memorable but not bad. The food was fine, again not remarkable but mostly decent. The cocktails were the best part along with the view. The music was very loud and hard to talk with my guest. The biggest problem is that it was very expensive, nearly 70$ for a couple of basic apps and a single cocktail. Plus the tipping options started at 20% which is ridiculous for a starting point. I would never go back because it was way to expensive for such an average expensive.
