Indifferent

If you wish to have an indifferent experience, go there. The servers are borderline rude. We were not seted at the table we requested. I called first as I have specific dietary requests which I was told could be met------they were not! This was our third time there, and it was same old same old.

We had exemplary service at breakfast and dinner on January 30. The person in charge, Peggy, was remarkably helpful, esp. at dinner before the opera. She remembered us from breakfast, which I thought was very good when she must have had a long day! Bert Almon

Tundra is just off the lobby of the Toronto Hilton. My initial impression was that the ambiance seemed very "corporate" and less intimate than I usually like, and I expected the food to be "standard hotel restaurant food." I was delighted by how wrong I was. The menu was intriguing and the favors wowed us. One of our guests ordered... More

We ate here because it is beside the opera house and offers a discount to patrons. The service and ambience was very classy and welcoming. The Arctic char was perfectly cooked and served with fresh vegetables and grains. The Caramel, Apple & Cheddar dessert has a minuscule amount of shortbread & roasted apple & salted caramel ice cream but was... More

Extremely good value for your money. Even though the choices on the menu are limited, the quality of food is excellent. Really liked the way the table was set-up. They have these trendy placemats, as opposed to table cloths. Was a bit disappointed with the quality of their napkins - felt like cheap rental. The staff is very friendly and... More

We went to Tundra after seeing the Nutcracker. We were seated promptly. We had the 3 course meal with Waldorf Salad as a starter. My daughter had the squash ravioli (veggie option) and I had the Christmas chicken with sage bread pudding, potatoes and green beans. To finish, we had cardamom ice-cream, with cheesecake, chocolate graham cracker and candied pumpkin.... More

The buffet was good but I found that there was not as much variety as I usually experience . That being said the eggs benedict was delicious, the croissants flaky and fresh. Given the price of a la carte dining this is definitely the wiser choice for value.
