Took my cousin from out of town for lunch. Had to bring him somewhere special since he’s not in TO often. Service from everyone was great! Food was delicious; I had the tuna burger, perfectly cooked. The view of course blew him away! Great experience overall.

I’ve been to KOST a few times but I especially love going for the brunch. I think it’s the best value compared their regular menu. I always get the pancakes but has tried the eggs Benedict and the KOST breakfast. It’s all good and you can’t go wrong. I love the pancakes. They are not too heavy and not too sweet. It’s a good combo of the coconut and fruits.

Last time we were there, my husbands order was not entered correctly but he was fine with the order they brought. But the staff went out of their way to remedy the situation, and we really appreciated their efforts!

Food took a long time and when it finally showed up it was wrong and then took a long time to get the right food. The food was okay, drinks are kind of expensive for what they are, but the view is awesome. Would go again for one drink but not for food.

Food was really good, nice ambience and great view (ask for downtown view- the other side is nothing special).
The detail that would make a difference was that even though I noted that it was my wife’s birthday, nobody cared to even say Happy Birthday! Wasn’t expecting free stuff but something to show that they do read the notes.

Such an elegant way to dine in the heart of downtown Toronto. The views are spectacular and the food is delicious. Service was a little slow, hence the 4 stars, but it was also New Year’s day so I’m sure things were busier than usual. The menu is fresh, and you can tell the ingredients are as well. I had the Ahi Tuna Steak Sandwich, and I loved every single bite. Highly recommend!

Was there to celebrate new years, the ambiance and the vibe was great, very upscale and treated very great. Great place to just have fun and a good time and great view. The only downside i would say was the food portion size, they were bird food size portions, i know they are trying to be upscale but a more moderate size serving would not hurt.

We went there for the New Year's Eve second sitting and were not impressed to say the least. The five course meal was atrocious and the server brought us our main meals before the appetisers! The managers were great in trying to fix this but when the appetisers finally came - we were left quite unimpressed. Food is very average. Unfortunately, we are unable to comment on the views because it was so foggy but that may have improved the experience a little if there had been a view to see...

Most of the food was good. The ceviche was awesome. Both entrees had elements that were bland or poorly executed. For $120 each I would expect more.

I recently went here with a friend for lunch, as belated Christmas get together.
The service I must say was amazing and all of the staff were incredibly friendly.
If you are going for an early lunch/brunch-try the cocunut pancakes they're amazing!

The management is clearly confused and unorganized but they serve good food. Also, requested for Birthday but they did nothing even after I confirmed when checking in and instead rushed us out after our dessert.

They asked us to leave our table because they needed to set up. But they wanted us to move right away instead of saying like “in 30 minutes etc etc”. They randomly came in the middle of our meal to take a chair out from the table as well.

The food and service were otherwise amazing! The dishes we ordered were awesome and our actual server was awesome :)
