Good winterlicious value

Had a good Winterlicious dinner at this locale. The beef short rib was delicious although everything else was kind of average. Nice atmosphere and good enough service but nothing to rave about. Good value at Winterlicious prices.

I have visited this restaurant in the past. And liked it. However my experience yesterday at lunch was disgustingly disappointing. The maître'd was welcoming. But our waitress, never asked if we wanted a drink. We both were going to have a glass of wine. She never told us the specials still don't know. BUT in my burger was a fairly... More

My eggs were cold, smoked salmon tasteless, and hash browns greasy. Very disappointing food but the place was nice.

Beautiful restaurant in the heart of downtown Toronto. We have been a few times for large group events usually birthdays or family get-togethers. The food is usually very good and the prices are reasonable. Our favorite is the steak frites. If you go on Thursday and sit at the bar oysters are one dollars each before 7 PM. They have... More

We went for a friend's birthday party and dined in the beautiful party room. It was like being transported to Paris. The décor of the restaurant is incredible. The staff was so welcoming, not rude even with a large party, they were efficient and nice. Will definitely go back again! Highlight was definetly dessert, the chocolate cake and crème brûlée!

My fiance had proposed to me earlier in the day and planned a surprise party at night where all my friends and family could join us in celebrating. We had a lot of people fly from in from California or drove in from a 2.5-3 hour commute, therefore it was important that we could treat them to a memorable meal/experience.... More

La Societe is a local favorite of many people I know so I thought I'd bring a group of colleague friends there for a lunch. It was extremely uneventful and the atmosphere from staff is somewhat pretentious. The food choices we happened to pick [P.E.I. Mussels Frites (bland), Steak Tartare, Duck Confitto (too salty) to name a few] where not... More

Great experience overall - went for Winterlicious - and food was excellent. Will definitely recommend and revisit. The Grand Marnier Creme Brulee was exquisite.

I finally made it for dinner here after years of listening to my husband rave about the wonderful lunches he's had here. The decor is beautiful - very Parisian. We were seated in the main dining room in a booth with very comfortable buttery leather seats. Very cozy but lots of room for 4. Our waitress was right over with... More
