“Luxury Sunday Brunch Worth Waking Up For!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2016 via mobile

Staffs of TOCA extended their welcome as we were escorted to our table. The ambience was good, our server was world class and accommodating. $79 per head may not be every body's brunch, it's all worth it.
Fresh oyster, prawns, salmon, this buffet brunch was everything to our hearts desire. Fair warning, save room for the Dessert Room! We explored their exclusive cheese cave, which houses perfectly aged Canadian & international cheeses. After all, it's Ritz Carlton, where do I begin.........

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2016 via mobile

The food here was great. Good selection of wines. Very intimate but a little noise. Whole lobby is noisy. Had sea bass and this was excellent. Nice fillet and not a bone. Started with a salad which was great too no room for dessert but would have loved it.

“Outstanding breakfast ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2016 via mobile

Wouldn't expect anything less at a Ritz location, but the breakfast here is simply outstanding. Everything imaginable with all of it being tasty especially the omelets and French toast made from their homemade bread. Would eat here again tomorrow.

“Unusual, High Quality Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2016 via mobile

I came for lunch. It is upstairs at the Ritz Carlton hotel. When you enter they ask your name and offer to take your coat. They say is so when you return they know what your preferences are. It meant the 3 people who served me called me by name. They ask if you wish sparkling or still water. I had the $25 sandwich and soup special and a $6 pot of tea. The meal was different. I had the club sandwich which was two toasted pieces of large bread with a hole cut out of the top with an egg yolk sunny side up in the centre, chicken breast, prosciutto and aioli in side on a wooden platter. It is thick and also because of the egg yolk breaking you use knife and fork rather than pick it up. Soup was in a small iron pot and was winter squash with beans. Tea came in a Bodum plunger "coffee" pot with loose tea. Sliced fresh bread came with olive oil. You can access WIFI from the lobby without logging in or password.
