Very good - with a caveat

Wish was adjacent to my hotel - the Comfort Hotel Downtown - and is a bit of an oasis in the neighborhood. There are tables indoors and on two outdoor patios. Overall the food was good - particularly the Beach Pie for dessert. But I was not impressed with the Rack of Lamb - I've had better. I... read more

Walked in on a wednesday during the lunch rush, wasn't seated immediately and our table was given away as the bartender/waitress complained loudly about her job to other staff. Service was extremely slow failed to notice us trying to flag their attention a few times. Food was okay but my chicken was dry with the spinach and beet salad and... More

We got in by the skin of our teeth - it was a very busy Sunday brunch service. The staff were dealing really well with a very large family gathering, another party coming in and then lots of locals and visitors trying to get in. The food was excellent - classics with a twist. Portions were generous and I loved... More

Have just discovered WISH - twice for lunch since I discovered it on recommendation. A1 ambiance in a white washed Parisian style - warm and inviting rooms. Food is very well thought out French inspired comfort food - rich and delicious. Extensive drink list with an enticing mixed drink and martini menu. Nothing like it in the area nor in... More

Cozy bistro with friendly service. I was here with my siblings, friendly service,there is patio and semi outdoors seating, that would have been nice, the day we were there was a warm spring day, and rather too warm inside. Food was very good, 2 of us had the special, a steak hash with vegetables and poached egg on top, it... More

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 is our second girls night out visit to this small, cosy eatery. 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. This lovely little bistro has such a welcoming feel as you walk through the front door onto their heated patio,... More

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.
