I booked a reservation for brunch on Thanksgiving. I wasn't aware that after 3pm the brunch menu wasn't available. So disappointed. It should be clear at the moment of the reservation.
They offer a mid day menu with about 6 options of entries. After choosing 2 appetizers the waitress come to us to apologize because one of the 2 appetizers wasn't available. At this point I asked to cancel the food order and pay for the drink.
I wasn't happy about my experience even though the place itself is great. I was so excited to visit this restaurant and bring my love with me, but we left starving.

Overall the restaurant is beautiful it’s the perfect place to hang out with friends or have a romantic lunch or dinner date the only thing I wasn’t very impressed with was the food it did not measure up to the level of expectation I had for such a beautiful restaurant. overall the restaurant is beautiful it’s the perfect place to hang out with friends or have a romantic lunch or dinner date the only thing I wasn’t very impressed with was the food it did not measure up to the level of expectation I had for such a beautiful restaurant.

I've been to more than a few, considered, high end restaurants but, hadn't been to this one in particular so, off we went. Food was lovely, if not, a bit over priced for what it is. Ambience was also lovely with a view of the city. Staff was very attentive, and pleasant. Almost $500 for 4 people, with let's say 6 alcoholic beverages so... there you have it.

Amazing amazing service. A place like this is always memorable because of the views, but then you throw in amazing service, and it's a delight. Huge thanks to our server team - made the first-time visit for my cousin and his new bride one to remember. Really enjoyed breakfast. Grab the Avocado Toast with scrambled eggs!

The ambiance was great, and the view was amazing. It’s a great location to relax with a drink. The food was okay. The fries were good, but the Ahi Tuna in the sandwich was very overcooked.

Disappointing dining experience. Started off great, we were seated right next to the window so got a great view of the CN Tower and skyline. I ordered the salmon and my mother had the pasta, however my salmon came out raw and the whole dish was lukewarm so I had to send it back. The server was very apologetic and requested the kitchen to cook up a fresh salmon dish for me. The new salmon dish was lovely and actually cooked this time and the server gave us a bowl of fries on the house. We wanted to stay for dessert but because of the main course issue everything was delayed and we had a show to go to so couldn’t stay for dessert. We got the bill and were really disappointed to see that we had been charged for the salmon and had to pay a ridiculous $7 for water which we were never made aware of at the beginning. It would have been a nice gesture if we weren’t charged for the salmon as it completely dampened the dining experience. Think this place tries to be too fancy and pretentious when it really doesn’t need to be. Wouldn’t recommend and probably won’t be back.

We came for my fiancé's birthday. We were both complimented with a glass of champagne, and a piece of cake following our dinner. The service was outstanding, and you can see a lot of downtown from this 44th floor restaurant.

We will go again.

Food was all very good. We tried almost all of the sharable options on the menu and also the fried chicken which was fantastic. The only negative was all the stemware was plastic - plastic wine glasses??!! We were told that is because the restaurant is near the outdoor pool which I guess makes sense but we were all seated at a table inside. View is also a reason to go!

To be honest, the manager (tall man) is so rude and demeaning. His bad attitude overshadowed how good this restaurant can be. Very unpleasant.

Excellent service with outstanding views of Toronto. Amazing roof top patio with beautiful water feature. Food was excellent and good pricing for an upscale restaurant. The drinks were wonderful . I would recommend giving this restaurant a try when you are in Toronto. Very easy making reservation with the OpenTable booking also.
