We went to the new location for my birthday and were concerned after reading some of the reviews. The food was as delicious as we remembered; the lobster bisque was the driving force for us going. The croquettes were amazing; light, fluffy, salty (in a...More

For several years now, ICI has been my favourite restaurant in Toronto - one of the few to combine fabulous food with an intimate, quiet setting. It was never a "trendy see & be seen" place but rather somewhere to relax and enjoy truly stellar...More

We dined at Ici last night. It was my daughter's choice as she had just graduated from college, and wanted steak tartare. We may have been naive, but thought that a French restaurant at the Windsor Arms would command a bit of class. Our party...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
