Late-Night Piano Bar

We stumbled across this gem while staying at the nearby Omni King Edward Hotel and decided to pop over for a nightcap. So I can't comment on the food or the dinner-time atmosphere, but the second-floor piano bar was a real treat. The atmosphere was so intimate and unique! The bartenders were very... read more

I have been dining at Tom Jones since 1983. I have yet to have a meal that was anything short of spectacular. It is in a unique old house on tiny Leader Lane, across from the King Edward Hotel. Opulent surroundings, three levels to choose from, although the wonderful third floor is for private parties. I typically eat on the... More

We have been visiting Tom Jones Steak House for over 15 years and continue to return for the amazing food and quiet atmosphere. Great for a romantic or family dinner or larger get together. Have attended birthday and anniversary parties here. Very nice family owned restaurant and the owners are very hands on do a great job. The cheese garlic... More

Ate at this restaurant recently with 2 friends. As has been stated in several posts, food was excellent, perfectly prepared and served. The wait staff we had were courteous, competent, and professional. From the friendly greeting at the door as you enter, the warm ambiance of a "classic" restaurant setting, to your exit, first class all the way. Yes, the... More

Well, this was definitely a surprise! We were walking around looking for a "steak place" when we stumbled upon Tom Jones Steak House. The server was very attentive and things were addressed before we even had to ask. His recommendation of steak over ribs was appreciated. The ambience was perfect and the food was fantastic! The only downside was the... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. Tom Jones Steak House is an traditional steak house. We both had filets that could be cut with a fork. Really - people always say that but it is true. We have eaten at some of the best steak houses in New York & Chicago and this tops... More

In some respects Tom Jones is a Toronto institution. It has been in business for close to 50 years in an iconic building tucked in behind a parking lot beside the King Edward Hotel. Sadly, the restaurant has failed to keep up with the times. The decor is stuffy and exceedingly formal, the staff somewhat indifferent as they serve you... More

I won a $150 credit for dinner at the Tom Jones Steak House in TO at an auction. First, it's good the TJSH participates in these charity events; and second, our $150 coupon turned out to be a pretty good value versus the meal we ordered... About the place, TJSH is a "classic TO steakhouse" which according to its own... More

This is an old school, brandy snifter, career waiter kind of place and we certainly can't afford to do it very often, but it was like going back in time. We had the Ceasar Salad and Chateaubriand for two, which were both prepared table side. The steak looked amazing but, apparently not good enough, as our waiter informed us that... More

Should have read the reviews before going to this place!! At best, the steaks were mediocre. I have had better at a Denny's!! (seriously) It looked good on the plate, but was grissly and tough. The vegetables were cold, the waiter was absent and the prices absolutely outrageous for what we got. When we expressed concern, the waiter basically shrugged... More
