AMAZING. I almost shed a tear after every bite. We got the tasting menu plus the “show me the roll” as well as the king crab plate. No complaints, would definitely come back to try the rest of the menu More

It was awesome! Thought everything they brought us was truly delicious. Can’t believe how good the corn dish was. Actually upset days later that I didn’t stay by myself and try the dessert after my dining partner refuses to stick around. My neighbouring table’s dessert was super cool, and required cracking by the server...no further spoilers though cause I knew nothing when I arrived and was so pleased with it all. Go try it, and enjoy! More

We had a delicious dinner at Victor, before heading to the Second City improv show (which is right across the street). The duck breast was cooked to perfection (so tender and flavorful), and the perch almondine was also really tasty. Our server was friendly and attentive and the menu had many wonderful selections to choose from. More

We ordered all at once and we were in and out within 60 min for dinner. More

Great ambiance for a Wednesday patio session with the girls. All staff were attentive, super friendly and personable. Throw in half priced wine bottles and appetizers, it was a great evening to catch up in style. Food input: The charcuterie board is devine!! Otherwise the group agreed the ribs were a bit dry and the shrimp a bit mushy. Near perfect. More

The food was very tasty. We ordered the chicken waffle (unique red colored waffles that were moist and fluffy) and the lobster and poached egg (had a refreshing taste). Overall, the service was great as well. It was very enjoyable outdoors with some music with a live dj. The staff also helped lower the shade to block out the sun. Great choice and would love to go back. More

Great place to relax and enjoy hearty food. The atmosphere is warm, modern and casual, with lots of TV screens for watching sporting events. The waitress was nice and helpful. I had the steak and mushroom deep dish pie, my husband the philly steak sandwich. Both were generous with the steak, and the pepper sauce was very flavourful. We like to attend the theatre, and were disappointed with management policy of not allowing open table bookings after 5:30 pm, but in future I'll just phone the restaurant to get a seating around 6:30 pm, so we don't have to hang around Kings St. for an hour before the 8:00 pm theatre start.

Were there for an early Sunday meal. Brunch menu was small but enough items for us. All the food was terrific. Sat outside on the rooftop patio. A perfect day for it. A very small issue was the blowing sound from the HVAC system from a neighbouring building. Enough to be noticed but not enough to be too distracting. More

Our hostess said "we don't usually do patio reservations but we managed to get a table for you", but the only available reservations on Open Table were outside seats so... Not really sure why she felt the need to say that. Kind of made us feel like we were inconveniencing her. Also the patio was empty. More
