Had a lovely meal with 11 colleagues in one of the private rooms, upstairs. The Cesar Salad was excellent, the steak was cooked to perfection and the Creme Brulee was so good I had to have it twice. Great wine selection and great service. We tried the Giribaldi Barolo which was excellent. The whole experience certainly makes you feel special.

Food is wonderful. Customer service is great. Wait staff make every effort to make sure your well looked after. Steak was cooked perfectly. Cesar salad prepared at your table which adds a nice touch. Complimentary garlic bread and pickles/olives/hot peppers add a nice touch. Wine list is extensive. You won't be disappointed.

My family was looking for a fine dining restaurant to celebrate two special birthdays. I had dined here many years ago and thought that it would be worth a try. My family and I were pleasantly surprised. The decor was quite lovely with the wood and stained glass. Service was friendly and attentive with great attention to detail. The food... More

Very dark, smells musty, is old and needs updating. The food is nothing spectacular, just plain and basic.

The Octagon is a landmark steak restaurant in Thornhill, drawing customers from around the GTA. Very traditional with an extensive menu which include seafood and other non steak items. Our selections included prime rib, sole and ribs. Unfortunately none of which lived up to expectations nor their hefty prices. Service was perfunctory but not necessarily friendly. Desserts were nicely presented.

We had a wonderful time and staff were very accommodating. A miscommunication with the reservation resulted in staff doing their best to fit us in on a busy Saturday night. They managed and the meal, as always, was excellent.

Food was good-excellent however the servers gave us very little time. We have received way better service at restaurants like the Keg.

I have been dining at this restaurant since I was a little kid. I have never had a bad experience here. The food is always amazing and the service is top notch. The prices are high but the Octagon is a special occasion restaurant in my opinion. I will continue to dine here for life.

Thank Darren S
