Nice Night Out

Went there for Winterliscious with 2 other couples. The place is very busy so we had to wait a few minutes for our table. Nothing crazy. The food was very good. We had the steak salad and warm lentil salad. Both were delicious. We had pasta, steak and salmon for entree. Again, all very good. Be... read more

Absolutely adorable restaurant. The food was spectacular. Little slow since it was during Winterlicious but we weren't in a rush so didn't matter too much. Had the craft Caesar, steak salad, crab cake, sir loin, and millefogile. Would definitely go again (:

One of the most charming and pretty spaces in the city, with the most inviting patio. The food is consistently good - both brunch and dinner - and the staff is always pleasant. If you're looking for a lovely evening, look no further.

What a quaint little restaurant! The food here was amazing, make sure you go hungry, because even the appetizers are huge. I had warm lentil salad, loved it, had never tasted anything quite like it. My main course was a 10oz striploin (steak frites), unfortunately it was a tad overdone, but it was such a busy night there, I didn't... More

(jan 23, 2016 around 8 pm) My sister and I decided to have dinner at Wish, she has been there before and told me the food was good. When I first entered, this placed good cute. But unfortunately our female server was very rude. The indoor patio was not busy, only had 2 tables occupied. I asked her if it... More

Had lunch here and were generally quite pleased with our meal. We ordered the lunch daily special- which was grilled cheese&bacon sandwiches with either frites or daily soup. The sandwiches were very good and I particularly liked the soup- portion was generous. Indeed we ordered the daily feature as we thought it would arrive more quickly since we were both... More

I hosted 6 friends today for our annual Christmas get together. We were seated in the patio area which is enclosed with vinyl walls for the winter - right beside the main door that opened into the restaurant and kept blowing open. We were all cold and sat with our coats on the chairs and our scarves and napkins covering... More

If you're looking for great food, incredible ambiance and amazing staff, this place is for you. Whenever we're in the city, we make a point of going to Wish. We had dinner last night, went to the Raptor game, and returned for late night cocktails. Our bartender, Raymond, made us the most incredible cocktails. He was so friendly and personable.... More

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.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
