Deserts selection were outstanding! And great fall inspired Cocktails! Overall variety weren’t the greatest, I would expect a bit more with that price. Moderate noise level, slight overwhelming. Not the right place for you if you are looking for fine quiet dining environment.

Overall very happy with an my evening with all the staff at TOCA.
The hostess/waitress was very friendly and made my dad and I comfortable at an amazing table at the back.
One glitch was there was no key to the wine cellar to get us our selection and we were compensated with
a complimentary glass of Truchard while we waited for our selection to be accessible. Food amazing and presentation was very much the high standards that the Ritz demands.
Thanks Toca for a nice evening with my dad!

Really good service from our waiter and the service manager.
We forgot the waiter's name but we think it was Raiyan. Really professional, attentive, funny and bubbly. Defiantly made our day. The taste of the food is good, but it's not the most gastronomic experience you can get in Toronto but lots of variety and quality.
Overall the service made this experience worth it.

I took my wife to TOCA to celebrate her birthday dinner after reservations at another restaurant fell through. We were completely blown away by the food and service. We started with the Salumi antipasti. Probably the best charcuterie we have tasted. My wife had their signature ravioli and I had the fettuccine. Both were delicious. For dessert we ordered the Semi Fredo Alla Vaniglia. This is reason enough to return to TOCA! Our server Edo was knowledgeable and friendly. He even brought out a special birthday desert for my wife. She felt like a Queen! We will definitely recommend TOCA and be coming back.

Atmosphere was lovely. Menu items sounded wonderful but all fell flat - one note. Tomato soup tasted no better than out of a can. Caprese salad was delicious and beautifully presented. Risotto was very undercooked to the point the rice was crunchy - far from al dente. Rib eye was cooked to a perfect medium, however there was so much fat on the steak that at least 1/3 of the steak was inedible. Ravioli was average as was the Branzino. Service was slow - despite us notifying them that we had to leave for a TIFF gala opening. It took forever to get our servers attention. Would not recommend TOCA - Toronto has better dining options.

Price seems pretty high for a brunch but when you consider the constant refilling of drinks, outstanding seafood and superb service, it was more than worth it. I can’t eat gluten or pork products, so they made me my own eggs Benedict with gluten free bread and smoked salmon. Our server was friendly and very conscientious. We will definitely go back again even if not for a special occasion.
