I initially made this reservation (during phase 2) patio areas open only, when we got to our reservation, the hostess told us our reservation was inside, but since phase 3 just recently opened the day before, we were confused as to why they didn't ask us wether we wanted to sit inside given that our reservation was made weeks in advance, for outside. Before we even got to our reservation we were stopped by the hostess downstairs for 5-10 min so someone could take us to our table. She overheard we were "hungry" and told us we had 10 min left to order, but not to worry when the brunch menu is done by 3:00 it switches to a bar menu and can still order food. As we were waiting for one other party, and we liked the brunch menu we called our guest who was parking and told her the situation. She insisted we order brunch, and in 10 min when she comes upstairs she has no problem ordering the bar menu. We told the server the situation, and she seemed okay with it. At 3:00 we got our food, and our friend was trying to order the bar menu, but she comes back to tell us that the bar menu isn't open until 4:00 pm. Sitting with our food, and she has no food, we were shocked at why she didn't tell us this when we repeated the same information the hostess told us at 2:30 PM downstairs. If this was the case we would've relayed this information to our pending guest so she can tell us what she wants to eat order the phone, given the menu was going to close.

We immediately looked for a manager who came by 15 min later, and told us there was nothing he can do"covid". We didn't understand why the hostess would tell us this information, and then when repeated to our server she didn't correct us? The manager then had the audacity to let my friend who was hungry pay for her one drink, which wasn't very hospitable and was VERY tacky.

Very disturbed by the service, and communication with the management, server and hostess. We were better off going to the four seasons for a brunch - noted.

We went to Kost to celebrate our anniversary. We loved the views .and the ambience was great...I’d give that a 5 star. Food was subpar for the price value. Did not meet my expectations. Toronto has some amazing food and this did not compare.

Service was just ok. I would recommend Kost to friends just for the ambiance but not the food or the cocktails.

It was a great night with great ambience and amazing view.
The waiter was very slow in giving us the bill even though he was told by another waiter that we were waiting. He was too busy chatting with another patron . He glanced our way a few times but continued to chat ....
But we did have the best table there and the music was grooving

The service was okay and the food was too expensive for the quality. I was looking forward to dining here. For my reservation, I specifically asked for a table that has the CN tower and lake view, they got us one with the lake view but we couldn't see the CN tower. I was looking forward to seeing that view and also for taking photos with it since it is our first time at KŌST. Nonetheless, it was not the worse dining experience.

I loved the view of the CN Tower and lake views but it was a bit obstructed by the umbrella on the patio and also the hotel guests and residents were in the pool and splashing the water which wet my feet. Also the area that had the best view of the the tower was blocked off for the VIP guests and or residences which was quite annoying because I went there for the views.

My wife and I went to celebrate our Marriage anniversary but unfortunately we didn’t have the chance. We ordered drinks and food around 9 pm, the drinks came but the food didn’t come on time. The waitress always came to the table saying that the food wasn’t ready until 10pm when became very windy on the terrace and they told us that the kitchen would be closed and they would stop serving. We had to leave without eating and celebrate our anniversary, Despite the wonderful place it was very a frustrated experience. I hope we have a second chance.

The menu did not change since the last time I went (a year ago). I had the feeling a table of two is less important than a bigger table.

One of the BEST rooftop patios in downtown Toronto, hands down. Love the ambiance, the views. The food and service are second to none. Definitely one of my favorite summer weekend hangouts.

Food was good but servings were extremely small for the price. $65 for a pitcher of sangria that filled <4 glasses. We waited a while for our table to be cleaned (reservation at 2:30, we got there at 2:40) and the kitchen closed at 3 and we weren’t able to order because we were seated at 2:55. We had to wait until 330 to order from the shortened bar menu with 5 items. Not worth the money and the hype but it was a nice view I will admit

Set is in a table where we didn’t have any shade, Made the overall experience not as good as it could’ve been. Other than that the service was quite nice and so was the food. More umbrellas are needed though.
