The fries are truly heavenly; crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. I would say that the mains are a little on the pricier side. Our server was very friendly. All in all, it was a good experience.

They are also the rare restaurant to have vegan dessert options!

Good food, very busy. Service was ok but noise level was very loud could barely hear the server. For a brunch it’s too loud

Beautiful space but really terrible service. Our server got so slammed we never got checked on. We needed items to finish our meal (condiments etc) and our food got cold waiting for our server to check back. No water refills. No coffee refills. The food was just okay, lacking the punch of flavorful parts.
The other larger parties around us seemed to be getting better attention versus our party of two. Super disappointed in the experience considering how beautiful the space was.

It was my girl Birthday. At first she was disappointed to hear they don’t have what we wanted but the server was so amazing. She recommended us few dishes and drinks and it was just amazing. I really loved the fries on the side. Overall our experience was amazing and I loved the services. 10/10 from our side. Also, on my special request, server arranged a cake.

What an experience!! Our server was top notch and always made sure we were satisfied with everything, including a special birthday dessert that was brought to us by surprise! The cod was absolutely amazing! I will definitely be coming here again. Love the atmosphere.

Any changes in kitchen staff? My friend told me everything was like 'muah' just a couple months ago for dinner but nothing was outstanding this time. The bacon in the burger was rock hard and the tuna tataki wasn't even bearable. Service was super great though, but I don't think I'd come back for the food..

Worth it just for the view! Comfy and impressive space for meetings, tourists or reunions. The food was just ok - avocado salad had too much salty dressing pooled at the bottom and lettuce were huge pieces. Nice staff!

Service was incredible. Even though the restaurant was busy, the hostess made you feel like you’re the only party there. Music could be toned down a bit as it was hard to even hear people at our own table

There was a major accident on the highway coming into Toronto and we were stuck in traffic for an hour causing us to be very late for our reservation. Everyone was so understanding, kept our table for us and we didn’t feel rushed at all. The food and service was amazing, thank you!

Birthday dinner with my wife . Service was very good . Prompt. Food was excellent . Hot and fresh. Perfectly prepared. Portions were adequate . Amazing views of the city . Staff very friendly . Overall a good experience . Didn’t knock my socks off, but still well above average. Value for $ - I would say pretty good given the view . Smoked short rib was excellent as was the flat iron steak . Zucchini fritters were good and the burrata was very good Side Parmesan potatoes were a nice upgrade from fries. Eggplant and cherry tomatoes were also decent, but nothing life changing . I’d give the restaurant a solid 8.5/10 .

It was unfortunate the entire menu wasn't available, as we would've definitely ordered more! Great food, brunch was a great intro to the day. It was a first time and by the end of the meal we booked our next one for dinner to try other menu items!

My husband and I took my mom to KOST for brunch on her birthday. The ambience was really nice and so was the service. However, the food, was not great. The avocado in the avocado toast was rancid. They tried to cover it with either lemon or vinegar but the three of us noticed it. The rest of the food we ordered was okay at best. Looking at the menu we were all looking forward to eating there but I have to say that sadly, it wasn’t the experience we were hoping for.

The service is perfect. Ethan was our waiter. He is just amazing and kind😊. I did a special request for the dessert time in advance through Open table and they reconfirm with me when we get the restaurant right away. One recommendation to improve would be put the music a little bit lower. Other than that. Everything was overall.
1000% recommended.
Gracias

The reservation was made for 10:15 to celebrate a birthday. The server was extremely rude and rushed us multiple times to tell us that the kitchen was closing. I understand that a kitchen has to close but the restaurant should not have these late reservations available. She then refused to let us pick a table near the windows when there was ample room. Bad service and wouldn't recommend going unless you want to be rushed.

Food and service is great. We didn’t like that our table was not fixed even after reservations. Wr were asked to share table which is unacceptable if we reserved well in time. Were given separate table later but its devastating at the beginning and shouldn’t have been an option at first place
