10 of us had reservations for dinner here. Everyone loved their meals, great variety. our server wasn't pleasant at all and never came back to ask if we wanted more drinks or more water. But we didn't let him ruin our meal.

The food was relatively good, though the portion sizes were not particularly generous. The service was attentive, though the atmosphere was a little cold (perhaps appropriately, given the name of the place).

This restaurant is within the Hilton downtown and food is at full Toronto prices inspire of a more casual atmosphere. The steak was perfectly cooked and well seasoned.

Let's cut to the chase. We ordered a shrimp cocktail appetizer (for $24). Now, I know this is a hotel restaurant , which are expensive, so I had proper expectations. What I didn't expect was to have a platter arrive with three - three! - plain shrimp with a side of 1970s shrimp cocktail sauce for dipping. The shrimp weren't... More

Ate here for dinner while staying at the hotel. The Indians/Blue Jays game was on at the bar so I figured I'd watch from the restaurant rather than my room.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
