They had an outdoor patio and lots of heaters and spacing between the tables. The food was amazing and we felt safe. Will def go back Next month.
It was excellent
The staff was very nice although I stated on my booking it was a a special occasion but still they didn’t remember. I liked the food. I also feel like there should be a waiter that’s a look out to see if there’s anyone that needs attendance. I had to raise my hand a couple times to get the attention of a staff.
our server Josh was the best server we ever had. outstanding' 10 stars to Josh!!!! he made our first visit a really amazing unforgettable evening.
Food is outstanding. Service was good but has been better in the past. This is our thiord time. It would be good if they changed the menu up a bit.
Amazing food!!! Our server, Josh, was very friendly and helpful with suggestions.
The food is too salty, the only one that is fair for the price is the tuna pizza. And the portion is too small. Not worthy at all. The service is just okay.
Never disappoints. Hands down best restaurant in the city !!
Love this place! I go at least once a month or every time I am in town. I always recommend this place for friends to try!!
RUDE + TERRIBLE experience
1. Told to come early for reservation
2. The was made to wait 30min
3. Rushed out meals then kicked up before finishing
Front door male manager (tall, glasses, grey hair, Spanish accent) was rude and provided terrible service in seating, trying to seat group of 5 at table for3,
then tried to seat at a table for 4
no apologies for their reservation errors, kicked us out in the end before meal was complete. Spent $1100+ for 5 ppl upsold a lot then kicked our group out
would NOT recommend
Always an amazing dining experience at Akira - staff and food are excellent!
All the Instagram models eat here, so I thought i'd give it a try. Beautiful restaurant, with friendly staff. We pushed back the reservation an hour on a Wednesday night and were still accommodated.
Service was okay, but could've been better for the price you're paying. My water cup was often empty and I would have to refill my own sake glass too.
My acquaintance was vegetarian and asked for a custom veggie plate but was told they cant do that. Most high end restaurants will accommodate, especially if the chef is Michelin starred.
The main reason I am giving a 1 star review is because I was expecting to have sushi rolls but the "master roller" had a "family emergency". Apparently the other sous chefs can make Michelin star food but cant roll sushi? We requested table side sushi that we would roll ourselves, but that was not accommodated. After expressing my dissatisfaction in coming to a Japanese restaurant with no sushi, I told my waitress I was not warned by telephone. She did not compensate me in anyway, not even a free desert! Lets see how they do in 2022 when Nobu opens across the street.
Food was amazing. Ambiance was amazing. Service was amazing. I have nothing bad to say!
The food is top quality, beautiful ombience and professional service.
Alex is great! He helps make Akira Back one of the best spots in the city.
Enjoyed the dining experience! On the expensive side.
Food service and environment are not as good as other diners review. My friend and I were disappointed.
Disappointed. Two pieces of fish BONE in the sashimi
It was perfect! One of my favorite restaurants in Toronto!
Great food quality, accommodation for a food issue in advance, atmosphere is great
My fifth time at Akira Back and this restaurant just keeps getting better and better. Food was exceptional, each dish was unique and flavourful. Service was wonderful. I will be back soon!
Amazing food , amazing service , very nice people , my waiter would give me the history on what I was ordering , overall amazing food! Definitely will be coming back , My fav was the Truffle pizza :).
The food are overall good, however there are two things really annoyed me: 1. During COVID-19 time, every table should keep social distancing, however, we are not the only table having other customers sitting next to us, which made me insecure. 2. Waiters asked so many times if they can take the plates even we didn’t finish the food. During our meal, we have been asked at least 5 times if they can take the plate, which made us feel like eating fast food, moreover, we ordered a 48-hours slow cook wagyu(which has 3 pieces), when there is still one piece left in the plate, a waiter came and ask if he can take the plate.
Food are excellent, but service and environment (social distance) need a lot improvement.
This place really was outstanding. From the service, our waiter was a white male that is moving to the UK soon, sorry I can't remember the name but just first class. The food was so delicious that we keep talking about it everytime we want to make a rest somewhere we're like, lets go back to Akira! The pizza sushi a MUST!
Richard was amazing.
Excellent restaurant has become one of my favorites, food and service was awesome
Great food, small portions.
Went for dinner with a friend. Took like 15 mins to get our table. The food was incredible and the staff was very friendly.
Never disappoints! Everything was excellent which is why I keep going back.
The food was absolutely delicious. I would love to go back the next time I’m in town
Incredible Food by Chef Kim and excellent Service - Well done
A very good and sophisticated japanese fusion dishes in Toronto area. Very good service and tasteful meals.
Loved the food and drinks. Our waiter was awesome!
Great food , great service , great atmosphere . A highly recommended
Akira just what the doctor ordered for a night out, as in the new environment they are less frequent, you want it perfect, they deliver. Amazing spot with incredible food , top notch service what else can you ask for?
From the time we were greeted downstairs, great experience, great waitstaff, the food cabe our in perfect timing, and was delish!
Looking forward to returning!
Absolutely stunning restaurant. Inventive and flavorful food. Music was very loud - couldn’t hear each other across the table. Meant everyone was shouting at their tables - I couldn’t shout loud enough to be heard. Was there for a milestone birthday - would have been nice to have a special touch to acknowledge this (eg bday candle or an amuse-bouche). Overall lovely and look forward to going back. <3
Food was great. The portions were small but the taste made up for it.
The music was a little too loud. It was hard to have a conversation
We came for our 1 year anniversary. Food was great and the restaurant gave us a complimentary dessert for our celebration. Every dish we ordered was phenomenal!
Tacked on 20% gratuity for a party of two with no warning. Way overpriced for what they offer.
