The food is as rather tasty but the steaks did not arrive as ordered. Medium was medium rare at best.
The service was terrible. Asked for separate bills(3) up front. Took forever for the waiter to figure out who had what? We needed to ask for the bill 3 times. The dishes on the tables were not cleared until we asked to have them removed then only took a few plates until we asked again.
For a new years eve dinner. It was a big disappointment thanks to very bad service.

This is certainly not our normal service levels and I will discuss your comments with my operations team. We will also conduct a refresher training course on service with the team.

We were attending a ballet performance and booked the reservation as it was conveniently located across the street.

I only regretted that your lamb sliders were no longer on the menu.
Hello IsabelM ... Thank you for the 4★ rating and sharing your comments about the sliders! We do have the lamb sliders on the bar menu ... they are not available on the All Day Dining menu during performance nights of the ballet. We will ensure that our servers share this information with our guests on performance nights. We hope to welcome you again soon! Happy Holidays Jonathan Joaquim, Complex Director of Food & Beverage - Hilton Toronto & Hilton Mississauga Meadowvale
Waiter was excellent and food delicious. Luckily for us the music loudness was fairly reasonable especially compared with all the other places were were in during our trip, even the lobby of the Royal York was overwhelmingly loud. Awful! Why are almost all restaurants so loud these days? People want to talk!
But we had a lovely meal and chat on Thurs evening-thanks so much! 3 from Halifax

All staff were friendly. Service was efficient. Very nice atmosphere. Food was wonderful. We had the steak and the meatloaf. We would return for sure.

I was there for lunch on Sunday. I called beforehand to enquire about the menu and was told it would be the lunch menu, but it was a reduced "opera" menu. Nothing I could eat on the menu since I am gluten and dairy free. I DID write that in the notes section when I reserved. the server was barely around and didn't understand any request for my dietary restrictions. I had to seek out assistance from the kitchen staff myself. I also had to seek out help to wipe my table when I accidentally spilled my drink. The food was ok, but NOT worth the cost. I will never return...
Dear angelab ... Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience. I would like to offer my sincere apologies. Due to both staffing and supply constraints, we were forced to reduce our menu during the ballet performances. We continue to retrain our team members on dietary restrictions and being available for our guests. We do hope we have the opportunity to serve you again.

We had a delicious dinner at Tundra before attending the ballet. Our server was attentive, efficient and pleasant. A great place to dine if you have a time limit.

Great spot to grab a drink before the theatre!
Missed the full menu but understand the need to curtail at this time. Charming but slightly absent-minded service. Continues to be a go-to lunch spot pre-ballet.
Not sure how the confirmation was allowed to be sent to us. We showed up to find the restaurant has been shut down for a while now. Please fix this so no one else has this experience
We did not enjoy our time here. First, it took a while for a host to show up and acknowledge us. Then, although the restaurant was almost completely empty, we were taken to a tight little two-person table. I asked if we could sit at a four person booth instead. All booths except one in the whole space were empty. The host said the restaurant is fully booked and the other reservations will be here soon... Fair enough - we said that's fine and sat at the small table. We were planning for shareables, so it made things uncomfortable because there wasn't room on the table for what we ordered as the appetizer (a tea, charcuterie board, and a glass of sparkling wine). Over the next hour, two of the four person booths were seated with groups of two. The remaining booths were still empty. First off, I highly doubt those groups of two had specifically reserved tables for four. Second, even after an hour, there was a large number of empty four person booths. They clearly weren't fully booked. In fact, the majority of the restaurant was still empty after an hour. We decided to leave after the appetizer and have dinner somewhere else because we felt uncomfortable in the cramped space and also felt like we were refused the tables for some underlying reason. We are both young and though we're corporate professionals, we have somewhat alternative styles. It's odd to refuse us specific seats because "we're a group of two", and then seat other groups of two, who are middle-aged and perhaps a more traditional-type patrons in the same spot. Basically, we felt singled out and like we weren't treated with respect. We went to Casa Fuego a 5 min walk away instead and LOVED IT!
Good spot for lunch - Tundra is centrally located at Richmond and University - and not packed and noisy, so good for a business lunch or a social get together. The food was well prepared and portions were quite generous.
Very quiet at lunchtime, server made excellent recommendations and was very attentive. I thought the entree was just ok but the main and dessert blew my mind. Overall: I would definitely recommend
Great service. Winterlicious meal was a great value and excellent
Tundra features food with a distinctive Canadian flavour. Good service with a quick pre-Opera menu when Puccini is waiting. Lots of choice from appetizer to dessert.
Before the COC, the service was efficient and friendly and the food was good. I had delicious trout. I did not particularly enjoy the berry tart, but it was well executed
Overall - very well done.
Still need a proper cloak room.
Service was slow and food was good. portion sizes we adequate for lunch or even a dinner.
The pre-opera dinner menu is good value with some nice choices; the onion bisque is very good, the trout looked pretty darn good,but the short rib was a good choice (and flavourful) but I always want another rib...sour cherry sundae was just right
The prix fixe menu was very quick and a reasonable size.
See our son. Visiting from out of town.
Chicken was tough and dry. They deducted it.
Risotto was so so. Husband’s pizza not very good. Son and girlfriend had steak frite which was good. Service slow but polite.
Great after event at Four Seasons - close, nice ambiance, good food and service.
Very good food. The black cod was incredibly delicious. The house salad was unusually good, and the calamari perfectly done - which is rarely encountered. The service was pleasant and competent. Way beyond typical big hotel restaurant expectations. We will be back.
Great post-theatre anniversary dinner. The staff was fantastic and even gave us a complimentary dessert and champagne for our anniversary celebration. (The plate even said Happy Anniversary in chocolate!) Food was very tasty and reasonably priced for the class of restaurant.
Overpriced for value.
Forced to do a 3 part meal when I didn’t want to.
Horrible service and a dirty restaurant.
It's like a burger from Gabby's from the 90's. The front of house wasn't professional. The restaurant is the most underwhelming spot I've been to in Toronto. Go around the corner to the drake 150, or anywhere else honestly lol.
The prix fix before the Nutcracker was ridiculously overpriced for the portion size served. There was not “dessert table” rather six petit fours for five adults. We had to ask for a second one and it was reluctantly served.
Service was disorganized but friendly. Regardless I can’t see us returning next year.
Food was satisfactory but disappointing because we ordered from the Nutcracker menu. It was a special night for our kids. The choices may be acceptable for very small children but kids over 10 have little interest in what was offered. The rest of the menu was satisfactory but not great. Again - when a restaurant is taking advantage of a special arts event, it has to offer something special. The service was slow and indifferent. We weren’t even offered coffee.
Hugely problematic service. Our Waiter went on break and terrible rest of staff refused to serve claiming she will be right back.
Asian guy working there standing in the middle doing nothing and refusing to provide service. Hostess on her phone and avoiding doing work. Other waiters hanging out in back talking and refusing to help.
We were running late and no service. Manager promised our tip would be changed back from 18% to 0% after our extreme frustration and didn’t follow through. Called next day and assured they would change but didn’t follow through. Now going through Visa to fix.
Strongly avoid. Atrocious service. And to add insult to injury no follow through.
Service was basic they did thier job, food was alright but felt that when it says mushroom medley it would require more then one mushroom. Enjoyed last years nutcracker menu way more. Value and quality wasn't there for the money spent.
Don’t usually go to hotel restaurants, but this was good for quick dining. Food was good, stick to the basics though. Our server was attentive. Convenient location.
Great 3 course menu before the show, and very high quality cuisine. I also like the portions, they were not too big, just the right size.
The food is excellent at Tundra. We had the spiced pork chop, the roasted quail, and the miso glazed salmon. All of us enjoyed their entrees. I had the ice wine panacotta for dessert which was amazing. The best dessert I have had a while. I highly recommend the restaurant and all of us are looking forward to coming back soon.
Great service and food, the restaurant was fairly empty so it’s a good environment if you want peace and quiet, but not so much if you’re looking for a more social atmosphere.
Convenient, pretty good food, handy to the Opera House
We went to Tundra after a show at the opera, across the street. Although our reservation was for 5 people, the server apparently thought the empty seat at our table meant we were waiting for someone, so I had to flag him down 20 minutes after we were seated, to place an order. The pork chop that my son had was what I should have ordered; my lamb ragout pasta not so great. My wife wanted a salad for dinner and asked for the salad to be doubled, but it was still way too small. We have been to Tundra many times, and it is usually quite reliable; I wouldn't hold this experience against them too much. We will be back.
This is the third time I have dined at Tundra after an opera.
It has been a good experience on each occasion, and especially the third time when I booked in advance.
The food is good, the ambience pleasant, and the noise level much more manageable - more modest - than in most places convenient to the Opera.
Our waiter was especially pleasant and courteous.
I am quite sure we will return when next we go to the opera.
