“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2016

Okay simply one of the best!
You can have a private dining table with a tasting menu or you can come with a friend or if you want a group of business associates it will be absolutely great. Their cheese room is exquisite amazing different cheeses as well a great wine list. The staff are one of the best teams who will make sure you have a great time and all your requests are taking care of. The culinary team is one of the best with great food presentation which will speak and taste as good as they look!

“Amazing service and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2015

My parents took our daughter to Toca after the Nutcracker performance. We were very pleased to see how gracefully they treated our daughter aged 6 . The sliders and branzino were amazing and very well executed. Our daughter was given a tour of the kitchen and the chef gave her a doll while giving her the tour. Very pleased with their service and their accommodation towards children. Definitely would go back!

“Not impressed for a Ritz restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2015 via mobile

Over price for mediocre food. Wasnt horrible but one would have high expectation for a Ritz Carlton restaurant and it doesn't deliver. They even charge $2.50 for tap water. Spend your money somewhere else.

“An extraordinary meal and experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2015

The four of us had the tasting menu with wine pairings. From start to finish each course was amazing. The courses were foie gras, triple pasta, filet mignon steak and deconstructed tiramisu. Each course was done very creatively. The steak was my favourite. Great flavour and really tender. It even beat steaks from steak houses. One person had an allergy to some things and the kitchen staff prepared awesome replacements. Our server was exceptional. He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the wine being a sommelier himself. The wine pairings definitely enhanced the meal were a real treat. He also recommend a great bottle of wine we ordered with an extra cheese course. Again, a perfect match. It was an extraordinary meal experience overall.
