Been to the restaurant many times and enjoyed every time. I have had steak fish and ribs and all were very good. The service is always professional. It is a great place for a special celebration . Parking is easy and is located north of the city which means for a great meal one doesn't have to travel downtown. Price... More

Wow!!! Yes, it's very expensive, but you'll be appreciating every single delicious bite. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is excellent, but the food, oh the food, is incredible. A Caesar salad at $16.95 should be the best in the City and, honestly, it is! $10/shrimp should be the best and it is, but the Chateaubriand for 2 will make... More

This is the place to go for fine dining. I had not been to the Octagon for years but wanted to take my wife to a fine restaurant for a special dinner. The table was available at the time of the reservation - no waiting. This shows that the experience of the guests outweighs the profit of overbooking. The server... More

Still great. Huge, varied menu with all the staples you'd expect a few interesting items. Steaks and salmon filet were all excellent and cooked exactly as ordered, even if waiter did mix them up. We figured it out. Wait staff was very attentive and polite. The ambience was, as always, very nice. Spanish coffee execution and presentation was worth the... More

We had a lovely lunch just before New Year's at this famous little northern Toronto Bistro, The stain glass and the ambiance was just grand. The service and menu items were varied although pricey but worth it. The whole team seemed a little unsure of our little group since were not there to spend and arm and a leg for... More

Went with family and friends for my birthday. Amazing everything from start to finish. Shrimp cocktail starter is a meal by itself. Rib eye was perfection. Lamb and filet mignon perfect. Great wines and desserts. Tonight was best in last 5 or 6 visits. It's pricey but it's worth every cent. Great service.

We have dined at the octagon several times over the years as we live in the area. The onion soup is excellent. The Caesar salad prepared at tableside is quite pricy but tasty. The large shrimp cocktail are the largest I've seen as well as the costliest. They are however delicious and well worth the price for a special occasion.... More
