For dinner, We told the waiter we needed to be out by a certain time and it took 1 hour 45 minutes to finish and we were very rushed as we waited for a long time for our meals. No time for dessert or coffee. I ordered salmon and it came medium rare. They took it back to cook another and it was the same. Our other friends’ meals were good. Our breakfast is always cold. Not sure if it is because they don’t have the staff to get it to the table quickly. We have been there 3 times in the last month and a half and it is always the same

Overall a great experience. Food was terrific and staff were have excellent service. Only issue was the manager decided to look at us (being the only asians in the room) and skip our table as he was making his rounds to ask everyone in the room how their meal was. All other staff were excellent

Ava was a great server. She was knowledgeable about the menu and an expert on pairing courses and bar offerings.

Each food and beverage course had wonderful layers of flavour and depth.

Food was bland and nobody came back to ask how it was tasting. No condiments offered (no s&p to be found on the table even...). Didn't even get a refill on my water. My mimosa tasted like regular orange juice.
Our bill was $103 for 2 brunch dishes, 1 cranberry juice and 1 mimosa. Underwhelmed.

Wanted to check out Reign as well as Clockwork and the newly renovated Library Bar.

Our service at Reign was exceptional and the food was good. The appetizers we average but the tenderloin au poivre was delicious.

I will say the one disappointing thing was that they were out of all IPA which our guest wanted and we ordered a bottle of Sancerre and they didn’t have a second bottle. If a customer orders a bottle a customer should be informed if there isn’t a second available…at least that was how I was trained.

Another thing of note is they did a pretty nice job on decor but something about this place still has a hotel restaurant. Perhaps it is the tables.

If you want an evening out where you can visit multiple locations at one time it’s a great night out and every single server was amazing…all three locations and that is impressive!

REIGN was wonderful as always. The peaceful setting is a wonderful contrast to the bars at the TY. All are fun and provide very different and equally unique experiences.

Two of us were celebrating birthdays. Our waiter overheard and brought us each a beautiful, complimentary dessert. Delicious and very thoughtful. That gesture added immensely to our enjoyment of our time together at REIGN. Thank you.

Excellent repas
La musique d’ambiance n’était pas appropriée…
Le tenderloin était fantastique.

C’est dommage que les meneurs soient maintenant rendus sur le téléphone, ça perd un peu de cachet pour voir le menu…

Honestly, it was a spectacular evening. Our drinks were amazing, the food was delicious and our server, Mohamed was OUTSTANDING. He was probably the best server, we've ever had. He was always available without bothering us. Drinks were topped up, food came hot, and if we needed anything he took care of us quickly and efficiently and flawlessly. He never interrupted our conversations but still was so attentive to us. I felt like he was just serving our table that night.

I would like to share a small hiccup we had at the start of our night we were a little disappointed with the gentleman that sat us at our seats. We had reservations for 5PM we were one of the first parties in the restaurant, we were sat at a small centre table and asked him if we could sit at a booth. (THE ENITRE AREA WAS COMPLETELY EMPTY) He was NOT accommodating at all, didn't even check with someone else just simply said "no, we are fully booked". We kinda chuckled as we looked around at ALL the empty tables and we said, "Really? We can't sit there or there" as we pointed to just a few of the empty tables. He walked away with being no help at all. We hesitantly sat down unhappy with our table. Lucky for us Mohammed over heard and happily moved us to a table of our choice. Again, Mohammed's service was simply outstanding. When we come back, we will be requesting to be sat with Mohammed.

Thanks for a great night!

We were 1/2 hour early for our reservation & they got us right in.

Ambience is different from past RY restaurants. Quietly upscale!

Service was terrific & both meals were wonderful.

We could complain about price but we feel we got value, so why would we?

We shall return!!

Had booked table for 3 for restaurant for nice breakfast before we left hotel since we arrived late the night before and did not have a chance for a nice dinner. Restaurant was overbooked and did not have our table so they stuck us in lounge at a teeny table at cocktail height that made it very awkward for 3 of us to eat at. No complaints on food it was great. Waiter was trying but they were understaffed.

My food was so nice and yum yum that I collapsed in my seat and went into convulsions, I barely remember a thing. I was then arrested for unrelated incident involving a shoe store .
I would recommend this restaurant to anybody that enjoys a lovely atmosphere.

The menu’s options are limited and you have just 5 choices for your main meal. The servant was frequently checking on us and it makes us uncomfortable. The food wasn’t bad but cocktails were awful. I don’t recommend this restaurant to my friends and I’ll never ever make reservation.

Wonderful service! Mohamed was lovely. Very attentive and fast (we were headed to the game after so this was appreciated). Beautiful dining room. Cozy booths with lots of space and felt very safe with all covid protocols. Food was delicious! Loved the beet salad, oysters, and halibut. Will visit again soon.

Excellent restaurant located in the Royal York Hotel for an evening of upscale dining in a quiet atmosphere. Think able to have a conversation without interruption. Due to Covid the food options were reduced as was the wine list, but were of high quality.
