Often come here for business meals. Great food and service - they cater to the business clientèle and get you in and out quickly (if that's what you need). Amazing views! Definitely recommend!

Waitress could have been little upfront about bread charges. Service in between and after meal was a drag. Needs to be alert. $5:00 for bread is absurd!!!!!

Disappointed that the restaurant had 3/4 closed off for a large and loud party. They should have called to let us know only the bar area would be open. Food was good but did not arrive hot. Towards the end of the meal guests from the loud party started coming into the remainder of the restaurant.

Overall good! We were visiting Toronto from Milano Italy and the restaurant was suggested by a Canadian friend. I booked on-line which was excellent and I asked for a table with a view. I called the next day to confirm my table with the view and when we arrived our request had not been met! We spent a lot of money for an okay view! Thanks Stratus!

Top notch view, truly beautiful. We had a gentleman named Reed taking care of our table. He was very professional making our dinner experience unique. We order a 2010 Amarone that was properly decanted by Reed. For our main we had the striploin steak that was cooked to perfection. We also order tuna tartare and sweet potato fries. Overall a wonderful place to enjoy beautiful views. I guess my knee observation was that the first table we got was not that great and only after we insisted they moved us to a better table. I would have expected using OpenTable vip that the restaurant would pay more attention in that regard.

The view was fantastic. A lot of business folk were there for lunches. The food was ok -- very eclectic, and a bit over the top for lunch. I had a great soup and an ok green salad; my husband had what amounted to a mixed-meat hamburger of some kind, which again was OK. I had a bite.

We visited Stratus to celebrate a family birthday. While enjoying the spectacular view of Toronto's Harbour we enjoyed attentive service , good food and lovely wine. The daily special of halibut I ordered was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. My husband loved the Tiger's butter chicken and my son thoroughly enjoyed his crispy skinned salmon served over soba noodles. I highly recommend the lemon cheesecake with berry compote for a light summer dessert. It was definitely worth cheating on the diet for!

Stratus is a hidden gem in the heart of the financial district. I enjoyed a solo evening among friendly staff and patrons. The halibut special was beautifully prepared and paired well with the Kim Crawford sauvignon blanc recommended by Reed, my accommodating bartender and server. He also makes a mean Manhattan! The next time I'm in Toronto, I hope to return with an appreciative companion.

Well, first there's the view. Fantastic. And then the cuisine was excellent, sophisticated, refined. The menu is short but contains a selection of meat and fish that should accommodate most. Great value for $, even without factoring in the view and service, which was also tops. I'm surprised this placed wasn't packed. It would deserve to be!

Everything was very nice, food, ambience and service. The wine list was pricey, and who wants a lovely meal without wine? So, you’re on the spot and really have no choice. That said, I would eat there again.

Very much enjoy the atmosphere at Stratus. The menu isn’t huge but everything we tried (fortunately everyone had a different entree) was well received by all. My steak was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. Wine choices were average but there was enough good varietals to provide an adequate selection. Service was great. And, oh yes, the view continues to amaze me. Certainly will be back again.

Food was quite good, and expectedly pricey.
Desserts were oversold and didn't match the description - was a bit disappointed.
Gave service a 1/5 because, while our waiter was friendly, he was disastrously overworked. There was plenty of other staff around, but our waiter was handling all of the tables in addition to making every drink (alcohol or coffee) himself. We were constantly waiting for a long time to get any service. Waiting 20min to ask for a dessert menu, then knowing what we want within 20 seconds but waiting another 20min to order dessert is unacceptable.

I found the waiter to be very rude, cold and not attentive to customer needs. He seems very disappointed when we didn't want to order any wine. After the main course, he didn't even ask us whether we wanted to see the dessert menu and just gave us the bill.
