From the moment I walked in the door the hospitality was amazing, John at the door found me a great seat at the bar. Virginia (I hope) introduced herself and called me by my first nmae the rest of the night. The Ribs were exquisite, this may have been due to Lorne the gentlemen seated next to me insisting that...

We were recommended this restaurant through our hotel as we wanted to experience a great steak place without going to any chain restaurants. We wanted a true Canadian/ Toronto cuisine. Well.... We did!!! It all came through from the very start at coat check to a tour of the cellar, an authentic Caesar salad and a made to order Chateaubriand... More

Best steak we ever had! The prime rib literally melted in my mouth. A definite must for a birthday dinner. Will certainly return next time we visit Toronto.

What a dirty, run down, overpriced, over hyped place, soup was bland, steak was dry and tasteless, rice was cold, asparagus overcooked, and dessert blah! Only thing tasty was the bread at the start of the meal. And what a crap bathroom upstairs! Overall a definite letdown, will not be going back!

It has been quite a while since I last reviewed a restaurant. But tonight I jut couldn't refrain from doing one. I've been to this restaurant many times now. The steaks are amazing. The ambiance is very comforting and ideal for a cold winter's night (especially if it snows a little too). What unexpectedly surprised me was the lack of... More

We had out Thanksgiving dinner here. The food as always was wonderful. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the desserts were delightful. The service is outstanding and everyone is very friendly. Can't wait to return!

We ate here (Elm Street site) two weeks' ago for the first time -- a place I've always wanted to try when visiting Toronto, and it was fabulous. No reservation, but we went mid-week, early in the evening, and there was no problem. The restaurant appears to be several small rooms; there's no crowding or noise, and plenty of room... More

Old school steak house for the serious steak lover. One of the most extensive wine lists out there. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and make you feel at home. You'll commonly see famous people hanging out because it's the benchmark for steaks in Toronto.

I like the place. It's relaxed and homey. The wine list is comprehensive and not intimidating. The menu is simple, steak-house basic. It's probably about average for a steak house. Better than Ruth's Chris, but not on a par with Spark's in New York or the original Palm or even the satellite chain locations of Smith & Wollensky. My baked... More

There is not much to say about this restaurant as a Torontonian because everybody who loves steak, knows this is the place to be for "that" Sirloin! This steakhouse is the epitome of steak and one of the oldest steakhouses to grace downtown Toronto. Superb ambiance blocking the hustle and bustle of Yonge street. The food is well priced -...
