So cosy

After vising the rooftop lounge at the Park Hyatt after lunching at Sassafraz Yorkville, followed by shopping on Bloor Street, we ended up at Wish for dinner.

I'm really liked this bistro! The food (a pasta with chicken) was delicious and the dessert (with expresso and cherries) is delicious! It is a calm place to talk and join good friends!

This restaurant is attractive and wonderfully located at Yonge Street and Charles. It has a welcoming front covered patio which happily operates until there is snow (with powerful heaters). The interior consists of 2 rooms and the decor is done in a comforting cream colour. It is cosy (but don't take the table for 2 right at the door). Outstanding... More

From the minute you walk through the doors at Wish you know you will have a lovely meal and experience. I had the pleasure of dining at this little gem over the weekend with my daughters. The atmosphere is hands down no short of "absolutely lovely". From the white wash look, the warm glow of candles everywhere, billowy white curtains,... More

The place is attractive , fish and chips is ok but don t try the chicken which is sort of protein paste with bones inside. Plus , ridiculous spirit serving , looking more as a sample in a glass.Service is ok.

We just happened to find Wish during a recent dtsy in Toronto because it was beside our hotel. It had a great atmosphere and a beautiful little patio so we decided to give it a try. It turned out to be the best part of our stay! The food was unique and delicious, the staff were friendly and attentive and... More

For anyone that works in the neighborhood, the quality dining places are limited outside of Yorkville. A friend chose this place and I welcomed the different scenery! We made a lunch reso for 4 people. The service was decent, menu looked good and the décor was lovely. I ordered the fried chicken club sandwich and a coke- it was not... More

We have been looking at Wish for a while and thought it would be a nice place to visit, well it was disappointing as it look so much nicer than it is. You get served but that is all I can say about the service, not really looked after and not considering the price tag. The food was once again... More

Officially the worst dining experience of my life. Waited 30 minutes for our drinks. We were a large party but still. We then waited 2 hours for our dinner. Each plate was brought out one by one. We asked for an ETA after about 90 minutes and were told food was being plated. 45 minutes later our party of 15... More

The atmosphere is nice- we sat on the front patio, which had heaters set up. It was still a bit chilly (March in Toronto), but not too bad. Drinks were ordered and came quickly. The food looked really promising. There were quite a few veggie options, but I settled on a Kale salad and onion rings. The onion rings were... More
