Absolutely the best service I’ve ever had in the entire city! Outstanding food, drinks and service and , I’m left shock every singe time with the performance of drinks, to food presentation and the amazing personal hospitality! Also they offered to modify the menu for a shellfish allergy and were amazing with doing so, when most places in this city give you a hassle. The only remark I would make, is add more food choices for chicken and veg options!

We went for Valentine's Day expecting the most romantic setting ever based on reviews and reputation this restaurant has earned online. Romantic it was. Worth it, it was not. I booked a table 4-5 weeks in advance knowing I had to move quick for the big day. I got a call 1-2 weeks ahead of time mentioning that it was a "Fixed-Menu" now and that it would be $80 per person. Of course I kept my reservation because by then it was way too late to book another decent spot.

Upon arriving we were shocked by the OUTSTANDING atmosphere and beauty of this restaurant. There were gorgeous rose pedals all over the outside and inside of the restaurant and the setting was phenomenal for Valentine's Day. We were greeted at the front and everything was perfect to start things off. I ordered a drink from the cocktail menu because I had heard such good things. My drink came out and the waiter lit some kind of bamboo stick and dropped it in the drink for "effect" purposes. Only problem is my drink smelled like a toilet and tasted like charred wood.

As for the 4-course menu. All 4 courses were one plate for 2 people to share. First course was the Charred Asparagus Salad (very good) and the Scallop Crudo (very slimy and hard to eat without gagging). The 2nd course was Oxtail Coxinha (good) and Moroccan Spiced Carrots (dish idea was fantastic but the carrots were not properly cooked/steamed and impossible to chew). The 3rd course was Soccarat (best dish by far but overcooked) and Grilled Swordfish. The swordfish came out raw. We let the waiter know and he brought it to the back. Came back out 10-15 mins later with the same piece of fish (shared by two people) and it was cooked by not satisfying at all by this point. The 4th course was Baked Alaskan Flambe which was cool when lit on fire but tasted like fire and the ice cream in the middle was not fresh, had melted and been re-frozen at some point. Total cost for 2 people + 1 drink was $205. Not worth it.

Disappointing overall experience

Probably one of the most uniquely decorated space and curated menu I have seen. I found myself messaging friends to tell them about it while still at dinner.

Came here on New Years Eve for the first time, and was a little bit nervous about our choice to try something new at first thinking that most restaurants were too busy and crowded, but we are so glad we came. Even though it was a busy day, service was just top notch, we loved the attention to detail in everything- from decor to marbled plates, whimsical food names and delicious ‘experiential’ cocktails, the food of course was tasty as well. There’s so much heart and love in this place, will recommend this to all my friends and colleagues.

Amazing atmosphere, fresh and unique food, out of this world cocktails and wonderful service; Pastiche really wow’d us! We have tried many of the finer dining experiences in Toronto and Pastiche stood out amount the top. The cocktails taste as though they come from another dimension entirely. We will certainly be returning for another thrilling experience.

Heard good things about this place and finally gave it a shot. It’s a fantasy place with special attention to details.

The food is divine (sharing style), drinks are fun (clever menu features a taste grid), staff are super friendly (host sets a good tone), and the playlist deserves auto Shazam.

Will definitely be back!

Pastiche has grown to be my favourite place in the city.

The food is fantastic ! ( try the octopus )

The cocktails are phenomenal ( ask for a wild card )

And the vibe is perfect for a casual night out or the perfect date spot. ( p.s, turn you shazam on )

Wow I cannot say enough good things about this place! Truly the most perfect dining experience, the whole night was an event. The food was incredible, my girlfriend who has a hard time with spicy food fought through the pain because the chicken mahjouba was just that good and the spare ribs just slid off the bone. Amazingly every dish that came out was somehow better than the last and the drinks were incredible, no matter what you choose you can’t go wrong!

A big thank you to the host who was just wonderful, without any hint from us he moved us to a more quiet table as soon as it opened as the group beside us was a bit loud.

From start to finish this is a dining experience you don’t want to miss.

Absolutely amazing. This is one of my fave new restaurants in the city. I've been twice now and both times were exceptional. Cocktails were unreal, especially the flaming ones. Rachel served us both times and we loved her. Will definitely recommend to anyone and will be back soon!

My second time at Pastiche, and it did not disappoint! This restaurant is so refreshing, with its exceptional customer service, and mouth watering food options - and not to mention the amazing cocktail experience. The head bartender is one of the most knowledgeable bartenders I've had the opportunity to see in action. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable and passionate, he was personable and laid back. Something you rarely see in Toronto!
