Host and server were outstanding. Personable, knowledgeable and gave excellent advice regarding food and drink pairings - the Barolo Chinato with chocolate was amazing for dessert. Everything is intended for sharing, which is great, but to be honest the "large" share plates are about right for the average relatively hungry eater and the "small" share plates are appetizer size so you can be antisocial and order for only yourself if you want. The view is great when the skies are clear.

The food was delicious and the server we had was very kind and helpful! The view was amazing and nothing I’ve ever been to before. Food is a little pricey, but understandable because of the fresh tastes. I would recommend this to all my friends!

Kōst is an amazing brunch spot to which we will definitely return! The great laid back atmosphere (held up even on a busy Saturday afternoon), the friendly and attentive service (my friend had several allergies which they accommodated seamlessly) as well as the gorgeous and tasty food was a great start to the weekend. Thank you, kōst team!!

I brought my mom to KOST for her birthday, specifically for lunch! The food was amazing, and the service was super quick as well. We had to wait a bit for a table closer to the window but it was worth the wait when we did get it (would highly recommend making a table preference request if you can). Overall the light and modern feel of the restaurant combined with the amazing views of the city and CN Tower make it a must check out spot in the city! For the location and views they offer I would also say it’s quite decently priced, and meal portions are average sized. They were even so kind to decorate the plate when we ordered a small cake! Perfect place for a celebration or simple outing with friends! Would highly recommend KOST and their friendly staff.

Beautiful spot, I go regularly and it seems like they are super on their game at the moment. Make me and my guests feel special which is huge. Portion sizes are good and servers are awesome. For business breakfasts + lunches it's still (just about) a hidden gem.

Enjoyable, fun waiters. Delicious, creative food but small portions for sharing. Excellent "house" wine by glass. Lovely setting, dining room, restrooms. Wonderful rooftop location and city view.

Table next to us was a group of four wealthy young people. Annoying.

This is one of the worst places I have ever been to - I would not recommend a thing. No views from most of the tables. Dreadful menu with only two vegetarian share plates. Over priced wine (or under quality). I suspect this is a “place to go and be seen” but without improvements, there will soon be no one one there. I could go on at length but frankly I want to put the experience behind me!
I suggest you go to BOSK at Shangri-La instead - it was faultless....

Great place for brunch. It wasn't as KOST-ly as I thought it would be, which was great. We had a tall blonde waitress who's name I unfortunately can't recall.. She was very great, was able to check on us every now and then and she was happy to take our pictures on the patio because it wasn't too busy that time.
