This place has the most expensively bland food I have ever had in my life. I ordered the lamb burger which was cooked well but with no seasoning in the meat, it's like they expect the toppings to make the meat taste good. My partner ordered the salmon and for $45, the one I cook taste better and I'm not a chef. Everything was just "meh", no outstanding flavours what so ever. We will not be returning and I suggest you pick somewhere else. But the decor the is pretty.

Food and service were fantastic. Live jazz band was great as well but you could barely here them due to the noise in the restaurant. Also the tables were a little to close to each other for comfort, enough for you to hear everyone else’s conversations. Overall it was the noise level that made it quite unpleasant for me.

The service and food were fantastic. The only issue we had was that we waiting over an hour for our table to be ready, in the meantime we were seated outside and had drinks. But, the managers were kind enough to compensate us for the inconvenience. I do recommend this place and would go back again.

Beautiful premises, welcoming staff, music just right to set the vibe. The food is top-notch, and comforting - hitting all the right flavour notes. I will have to return soon for the Blue Crab Lettuce Cups, and Billionaire's Shepherd's Pie. Salads were flavourful and fresh to balance the meal. An espresso nitro martini was the perfect ending to the meal.

The central bar is beautifully designed, and I can't think of a better place in Toronto to meet someone special for a drink and snack.

Highly recommended.

As regular guests for Drinks and Meals prior to EPOCH, I must say I/We were very dissapointed with our first visit to EPOCH as it was not up to the uusal Ritz Carlton Toronto standards. Difficulty in getting a confirmed reservation, then only inside tables when we thought we had booked a patio table and then very spotty service. I will be generous and blame the experience on the long-term effects of COVID-19 and also that EPOCH has not been open very long. I will return, but will leave it some time in order that you can get the act together.

Becoming a part of your guest's story is a unique opportunity to make connection, create a memorable experience and to take the delivery of your service, a step above. Walking into Epoch on Saturday afternoon, to a prime spot as requested on the patio, with 2 handwritten cards wishing both couples a Happy Anniversary was a lovely touch. The complimentary glass of champagne delivered by a different server who expressed congratulations and acknowledged our celebration, demonstrated that the leadership understood the importance of encouraging staff to be more than just a serve but to be in the know and in the real experience of their guest. Hats off to a great team, engaging but not intrusive and professional. The Ritz you are always a class act. Thank you for having us, we will be back.
