Although the food was very good the prices were very high. There are many restaurants with very good food for half the price. We got a reasonably priced red wine, a couple of martinis, I had crab legs ( but they cut up in small pieces in a bowl with no spoon to hold them so I had to use my fingers) and a square piece of swordfish. The bill with tip was almost $600 for two people. The decor was nice but nothing spectacular.

This was a return visit and we were not disappointed. The Arctic Char was simply delicious and the service was quietly efficient. My client was from SanDiego and wanted to come here again. I have been here for dinner a number of times and now twice for lunch. Definitely recommended.

The service was really nice, and all the food was great. The only thing I felt a bit discomfort is our table was set so close to another one, might because both of us came as two.. but I booked here for my birthday , and we can clearly hear whatever they were talking. Anyways, I still recommend this place, but hope they have better arrangements next time!

The food was fantastic, service was deplorable. Prices are outlandish, average entree is $60.00? It is Thornhill not downtown Toronto financial district. To welcome you, they have valet parking for $12.00 again it is Thornhill where there is an abundance of parking not downtown Toronto where there is a shortage. Did not appreciate breathing in everyone's second hand smoke entering and leaving as they allow patrons to smoke under the front door canopy. All in all, a very expensive restaurant who need lessons on how to treat patrons and should learn where they are situated, NOT DOWNTOWN TORONTO.

Before I ordered my food I told our waitress that I cannot eat any form of bell pepper. She acknowledged this and I ordered a crab cake and a short rib dish which she did not caution as having any peppers in those dishes. In my first bite of the crab cake it was obvious that the red sauce on top contained red peppers. Within a minute I got my adverse reaction to this which carried on through the dinner. I called her to complain so that I could order a different starter. I ordered the lobster bisque. She came back from the kitchen a few minutes later and advised me that this soup also contains red pepper (highly unusual). At this point it was obvious that she did not know the ingredients of the items on the menu. She also advised me that she just learned that the short rib entree I ordered also contains peppers. At this point it is probably 15 minutes since I placed my first order and my companion has now finished his starter. I ordered a shirmp taco to start (often contains peppers) and the fish special. The shrimp taco was delivered without any bell peppers and was quite good, but bland. The fish special was excellent. When we got the bill it included everything including the crab cake and not a single thing provided for free as a gesture. Very disappointing experience.

Poor food, poor service, and poor solution. The portion of the food is far smaller than they should be, the server's attitude, sucks. They almost get everything wrong, I will definitely never come back and tell all my friend not to come

The wait time was ridiculous even though we had a reservation but yet we had to wait 45 mins. The food was decent, but the service was awful for the price you pay! Oh and while we were waiting at the bar to be seated, we noticed that they use the same ice they put on top of the bottles for customer’s drink, with their hands! Imagine how dirty they are! So we had to order drinks that doesn’t come with ice! Because it was pretty risky. To be honest for these type of fine restaurants, they should offer complimentary valet and coat check instead of charging the customers!

Everything was wonderful. The food was spectacular except for the crab cakes, there was shell in them and they were too mushy. The only issue we had was the price. Dinner for two with a couple drinks came out to 390$ yikes!

Nice quality food in up town location. Ceasar Salad with many flavours, Striplion steak nicely grilled with perfect seasoning, and the wild mushroom risotto was great. Server was very polite and acted professionally.

Hard to find a parking spot, and very packed at the reception area. Seems the restaurant over-booked. We arrived 25 mins before our reservation, so we got seated with no problem.
