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.

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

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 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.

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

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.

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.

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.
