Fabulous breakfast

Busy place on Sat at noon. We had to wait 40 minutes, but boy was it ever worth it. French Toast, smashed avocado, and Nutella toast w Raspberry coulis. I'll definitely be back.

The last time I ate at WISH was more than 7 years ago and I remember the burgers being sublime, at that time. You know a restaurant is great when you come back 7 years later and the food and service is just as great. WISH is located just south of Bloor just east of Yonge Street. It is a... More

Everything we ordered was incredible tasty, I ordered sirloin and salad, I wish I could taste it again.. And a Lamb burger, the best we ever tasted... Ambience quite fancy, but the service very slow... We planned to go to ROM, but ran out of time doing lunch there...

If you don't mind waiting a little for food and service, this place is totally worth your while. The food is exquisite and creative, the coffee is amazing, the drinks are great. Service is friendly and the place even thought it is small it's very comfortable. Much recommended to make reservations to make sure you can get in. We only... More

Had dinner with some friends here in summer. The ambiance was excellent and the food was good. We sat out in the patio. I had the rack of lamb that was excellent, except that it was way too salty. I was too hungry to send it back. At the end of the meal I mentioned it to the serving staff.... More

Went here for drinks. Their cocktail menu is very creative and has a few fun twists on old favorite (like the maple whisky sour, for instance). Warm patio and a nice atmosphere. Will have to come back and try the food sometime as it looks to be as creatively prepared as the drinks are. Also great location tucked away from... More

I have been several times and this is hit and miss but lately so much better. Good food beautiful restaurant. At times food is not amazing but last time salad, sandwich and drinks were great. Brunch is even better. If you complain they try to make it better which is half the battle.

Wish was just as we expected based on the information on their website. We enjoyed the relaxed vibe on the patio. The food was excellent - it was extremely tasty and well presented. Loved the warmed plates! We enjoyed the Summerlicious menu - I have never had lamb chops simply as an appetizer and they were delicious. Would definitely recommend... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
