Toca is the perfect restaurant on your way to a Leafs game! Located only about 8 blocks from Arena, we had an awesome meal of house baked fresh bread, house salads, swordfish, branzino, grilled vegetables! Service was awesome and are time at Toca was special!

I was at the TOCA for Sunday brunch. This was a good experience. The food quality as good, included were a number of drinks, service was excellent. Ambiance was nice, perhaps a bit more light would have been better. The only complaint was that for the price point the selection should have been more extensive. Carvery was weak, the hot items were not very exciting. But overall it was good.

The restaurant is not very large and the tables are a bit too close to each other. So when the lady at the next table accidentally swiped at her glass the mimosa flew all the way to my table and the chair. Good thing there was nobody sitting at that location otherwise the person would have been doused in alcohol.

The Toca Sunday brunch used to be our go to for small celebrations or when we wanted a treat and we had been regulars for the past three years. I have found that the quality and service has recently started to go down. It doesn't feel special anymore. It feels rushed, busy, and overbooked. I cannot speak to Tocas regular menu, but was disappointed enough during my last visit that I doubt I will return.

Dear Mr Mzacharia,

Thank you for being a regular guest at our TOCA brunch. It is a very popular event but I am sorry to read that we did not meet your expectations on your last visit and have communicated your comments to our restaurant team. Please feel free to contact Peter Muir or Tarun Bhatia so that we can understand the opportunity for improvement better and hopefully have the ability to welcome you back to our great Sunday brunch.

Kind regards

Had dinner with a large group at Toca. The service was quite good for the size of the group and th ¡e food was very good. The setting is nicer than others in hotels and the meal was quite memorable where I ordered a filet of Branzino, delicious!

We came to Toca for lunch and everything we ordered was fantastic. The salads are amazing, great combination of ingredients, very fresh, and the Branzino dish was outstanding as well, as are their cheeses. Very attentive staff. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend.
