    As always, the service was exceptional and the food was amazing. This hidden gem is the perfect spot for before or after a show at Koerner Hall, or a day of shopping and taking in the sights of Yorkville. Yuri, and the other wait staff go above and beyond.

    The appetizer, parsnip soup and salmon was ok. The entree, truffle pasta clearly had no truffle. The chocolate pudding tasted like store bought snack pack. The apple crumble was soggy as if it was microwaved to be reheated. Was not entirely happy with the food, especially for the entire price including tip coming out to $130. Service was kind and friendly, but it took too long to get our order since there was only one server/waiter walking around the floor. Also the venue look amazing, we picked the window seats, found out there was no heating so it was extremely cold, since the requirement for dressing up was business casual.

    The only negative to the experience was the repair/construction work going on in the underground parking. It created a very loud noise in the restaurant, a sharp contrast to the ambiance.

    Great tea selection and beautiful china for all the delicious cakes and bites. 1 pregnant person and another allergy shouldn’t be an issue. After an awkward encounter they brought us a smoked salmon alternative which was wonderful and I appreciated the accommodation. We were the only table on a Sunday afternoon which was surprising.

    Christmas dinner at Signatures was very enjoyable. The smoked squash soup, roast turkey main course and Christmas pudding finale were all delicious, but the third course cheese plate was disappointing. The strong unusual flavour of the manchego cheese did not harmonize with the rest of the meal. The server kindly offered a complimentary coffee since I did not eat the cheese. The ambience is perfect for a relaxed, comfortable and stylishly casual dining experience. It doesn't fit into the "romantic dinner date" category. I look forward to returning to Signatures for lunch or dinner to try more of the offerings on the menu!

    Rather disappointing and very expensive for the quality of the cuisine served. I appreciated it was Christmas evening and dinner can be more expensive but it really wasn't good value. The Christmas pudding was dry and the cheese course had clearly been prepared too far in advance leaving the cheese dry and sweated. We had far better meals in Toronto, some in very good restaurants, at a lower price and in equally good ambiences.

    Long faces coming out of Sonesta hotel's Signature restaurant... Charged $120 per person for the Christmas buffet but did not deliver the goods...cut back on quality and were skimpy. Sonesta are the new owners and under previous times dining it was a nice experience. The prices have doubled but as mentioned the value decreased Service was nice. $120 is quite a charge for medicine fare.

    A fabulous meal served by attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The ambience at this restaurant is one of relaxation, very classy and a perfect place for any occasion. Years ago we celebrated my daughter’s graduation from U of T with family and were given their private room. Classy and exceptional. The servers made us all feel very special. We still talk about our dining experience at Signatures.

    Upon arrival at 7:00 my wife, walking with a cane, notified waiter we were attending performance across the street at 8:00. Ordered food 5 minutes later: risotto and fish. The ONLY patrons in the restaurant, we watched staff come and go for almost half an hour. At 7:32 the entrees arrived, the risotto luke warm with the oily mushrooms on top. Left 13 minutes later with more than half the food untouched and barely made the performance time.
