Excellent service from host until the end. Great quality food and amazing view. The only thing bugs me are the restrooms are not on the same level and to access it you have to pass trough an exit staircase in concrete after you pass between the kitchen and the dishwasher area....since the building is new and the decor is so nice...why being so cheap on the restrooms access?

First of all, I made a reservation near window, they gave me a table at middle of the bar. Second, all waitress were poker face, they do not put smile on their face at all. The food serving was so slow even they were not busy. All in total, not worth to come the second time. The music there was so loud, we cannot even enjoy our conversation and food.

My friends and I were visiting each other from different parts of Canada and chose Kost for the views and atmosphere. We had a lovely window spot and watched many people go outside to take picture with one another. When we went out, a staff member repeatedly yelled at us stating the outdoor area was closed and did not provide a reason why. He just yelled like we had purposely broke a rule, yet the doors were unlocked and there was no indication it was closed other than his yelling. Needless to say, he ruined our experience by treating us horribly.

KŌST was outstanding! I would not have changed a thing accept for the weather as it was too windy to go outside.
Our server was the best. He made great suggestions from the wine to the main to the desert. (Chris)

I can’t wait to come again 😁

This was my first time at this restaurant and I’m very happy that I came here. The service, the food and the vibe is amazing and the view is beautiful. Very Friendly staff and our server was very nice and professional and had great recommendations for food and wine. We had steak tartare, oysters, smocked short ribs and fries and all was spot on. The wine selection is nice as well. The only thing needs to be upgrades are the high chairs and I suggest changing it with something more comfortable:). Otherwise everything was very good and my date enjoyed and loved it as well.

Great food in a fab location, views over the city and cn tower. We had the tuna, ribs and cauliflower plus others but they were particularly outstanding.

Service was friendly, relaxed and helpful, although the red wine bizarrely when being poured near the end of the bottle seemed to have become chilled???

Still great food in a vibrant, trendy location, expensive though

Amazing place to be. The restaurant and the staff were great. We arrived early and the staff was easy going and relaxed. They kept us comfortable and slowed the service to a great pace to wait for dinner service. When dinner service was ready they presented an amazing meal for each of us. Thank you for a great night. We will be back.

I booked a reservation for brunch on Thanksgiving. I wasn't aware that after 3pm the brunch menu wasn't available. So disappointed. It should be clear at the moment of the reservation.
They offer a mid day menu with about 6 options of entries. After choosing 2 appetizers the waitress come to us to apologize because one of the 2 appetizers wasn't available. At this point I asked to cancel the food order and pay for the drink.
I wasn't happy about my experience even though the place itself is great. I was so excited to visit this restaurant and bring my love with me, but we left starving.
