“Amazing business meal ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2015 via mobile

Great service and great food. It's almost like an Italian twist on a steakhouse. Very creative appetizers and entrees. They found a way to make the typical filet mignon much more interesting.
Highly recommend

Unfortunately it was a very quiet night. However for us, the staff were so attentive it made for a great evening. The food was inventive and beautifully presented.

“Delicious Meal with Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2015 via mobile

We recently enjoyed an early dinner prior to another event in Toronto and were treated to delicious wine (large selection), exceptional service and spectacular food.

We ordered a caprese salad with lobster, rack of lamb, and the sea bass with sides of vegetables and gnocchi. VERY dish was beautifully presented, served piping hot (where applicable), and most importantly was extremely flavourful. Chef and all staff clearly take great pride in their work and it was a treat to be looked afters so professionally. With the bill we were even given little pastries to enjoy as we didn't have time to order dessert. . . next time!

All in all we both loved our experience and look forward to returning!

“Great setting, OK food, great service. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2015 via mobile

Beautiful restaurant, nice cosy and woody feel in downtown Toronto. We had breakfast and we're not amazed by their lackluster omelettes. The other food options were just good, but eggs for breakfast must be great in a five star hotel restaurant. Service was really good.

“Pleasant night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2015

We had dinner with another couple at Toca this weekend. It was a great weekend to be at the Ritz Hotel (where Toca is located) with the Toronto International Film Festival in full swing and several of the stars staying at the hotel. Great atmosphere. We had the special tasting menu. The first course (foie gras) was perhaps the best I have ever tasted. The remaining courses were all good, but went downhill from the starter. The main course (filet) was, in fact, not great at all. The service was excellent (far exceeded the average) and the sommelier was great! All were helpful, friendly and seemed eager about their jobs. I just wish that steak had been better and I could have given this place 5 stars.
