    This was our second time we’ve been here and had the pleasure of meeting the exact same waiter(Ethan) that took care of us last year. Food was amazing, atmosphere, lighting, music, everything. We will definitely be back again!

    The decor and view of the CN tower were both gorgeous. The staff were also all extremely friendly, polite, and welcoming too. We went at a time where the restaurant was not too busy, so the food arrived very quickly and was really delicious as well (especially the dulce de leche dessert)!

    We had such a great experience at Kost! We came in for a team lunch and it was a great experience. The staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming. The restaurant itself is beautiful and airy, and of course the views were wonderful. The food was tasty and presented nicely. They ended our experience with complimentary desserts as we were celebrating, which was such a nice treat.

    Waiter forgot about our order, we waited over an hour for our food to arrive, and we only got our food served because I had to ask the bar manager about it. Ambience was nice and beautiful decor. Drinks are extremely expensive, I paid $28 for a 9oz glass of wine? Come on!…. Rip off

    Dear Sir or Madam, We celebrated my Birthday on Saturday at 8 pm. Unfortunately, we were not able to cut the cake. They told us there is someone waiting for our table so we should leave there. We could not eat the cake but they charged us for the cake service fee. You cannot charge us 45 $ even though we did not cut the cake. I want you to refund the money because of this issue.

    They ran out of veggie options at 1pm. The server couldn’t explain the dish and what’s in it. When we decided to leave after the first course, the server immediately changed the tone of speaking and looked upset. He was not very friendly when he came with the bill.

    We did not plan to come to KŌST on Nov 11th but when my friends' reservation wasn't going to work out...I knew where we HAD TO go! My friend had never been to KŌST and now it's on her list of 'must return' places. We were warmly greeted and welcomed into the restaurant, provided with a fantastic table/location and the staff all made sure to acknowledge the 'special event' the brunch was for ☺️. The waiter was very attentive, personal but most of all professional - top notch! I've been to KŌST many times when I lived in Toronto and now I make sure to plan a dinner there every time we return to Toronto to visit.

    I had high expectations and was ready to enjoy an evening of food and drinks. I ended up with a $38 piece of overcooked salmon with no sides (which I would have happily ordered and paid for if server was a little more pro-active in letting me know that my meal choice had no sides with it) and no wine or drinks after my first cocktail as the server never came to offer any more drinks. We were left with our empty cocktail glasses until we were almost done eating. We left and went to another local spot for an appetizers and drinks since I was still hungry!
