This is my first experience at kost. I found the menu limited in choices...It's best to share a variety of plates. The service was lacking and inattentive, tried to order 3 different wines before we got a recomendation from the manager since the server did not know what was in stock. Over all we enjoy all the food but don't expect much in service but a pretty face.

My wife and I eat here all the time. It’s definitely one of our favourites. Last night for the first time we brought our kids. Although this is not really a family restaurant, they paid amazing attention to the kids, made them feel important and this meant a lot to us. The food was delicious as per usual. It’s always a bit over priced but we understand we are paying for the ambiance. Thank you again to the servers who gave our boys a great experience.

Second time here. First time I had the most breakfast which was decent and my friend had the pancakes which were also pretty good. This time around I had the wrap and I do not recommend it, felt like I could’ve had something better at home. This place is a bit over rated most likely because of the venue which is beautiful so really that’s what I believe your paying for . I have had better food at other venues in Toronto for brunch. Staff was hit or miss. Some were stand off mosh and I did not have a good experience with the bill. It was supposed to be charged to my room at bisha as I booked the bed and breakfast room l. but I was told by the restaurant that they are completely separate and that I should take my bill downstairs which made no sense to me as I was told otherwise by the hotel. I was then abruptly interrupted by the waitress when I was leaving who seems as if she had to run after me as she said my room couldn’t be charged. This was quite embarrassing and not my fault.

I live here and eat here often and the food was as expected. Good. The service is mediocre and considering the restaurant was virtually empty you’d think servers would be more attentive. We were also told that we could only get reservations at 9am because the restaurant was packed. We left at 10:30 and there were countless empty seats throughout the place during our whole sitting. If there was a reason we couldn’t book past 9am it wasn’t apparent and we were given false information which isn’t appreciated.

Unfortunately you are paying for the view. The first initial serves/host to help our group were so accommodating but our server was absolutely terrible. I am usually not one to write negative reviews but had to for this one. Half the time we didn't know where he was, sometimes we had 2 people coming and asking for our orders then forgetting for 30 min at a time, or asking and coming back 15 minutes later and asking again. The restaurant also was not full.... it was extremely embarrassing for a "high-end" restaurant. Food was okay small portions. Drinks were okay as well, nothing to write home about. I guess it all depends on your server. Will not be back again.

$16 Ceasars was really the only negative and it wasn't even that great. Otherwise a great experience and looking forward to that patio being open. Unreal view!

Good place to grab small plates and share with people. A little over priced for food portion size, but you are also paying for the atmosphere and nice view. Overall, a good experience, I would definitely come back.

We went here for our anniversary and were not disappointed. We loved everything about the place! Our server went above and beyond and the food was delicious! Our 3 year old devoured the coconut pancakes!!! We loved the green chorizo, roasted potatoes and everything on top of it! Definitely going back!

I loved my experience at KOST! I made reservations ahead of time for my birthday brunch, and I had asked for a spot by the window with a good view of the CN tower- and they did just that! Our server was friendly and interactive, he even up-selled us without our knowledge because he was such a natural! Will definitely be back!
