Absolutely delicious!

We were thrilled to be able to dine at Ruby Watchco's once again after a year or so between visits. Our server was terrific - attentive but never making us feel rushed.

Experience is the buzzword in today's society. But what makes the experience is what counts. The experience here was worth it in time and money. We ate here in October of 2014 for an anniversary dinner. The venue was a reasonable noise level considering its popularity. The wait staff was very cordial and explained everything up front (note this is... More

This Saturdays menu offering at Ruby Watch Co was really appealing to us, so we called for a last minute reservation. As expected none were available. However, the seats ( 9) at the bar were available on a first come first served basis. We grabbed 4 seats at 6;30 a bit early for us but hey, you do what you... More

With high expectations, after already canceling a previous reservation because we weren't smitten by the daily menu, we decided to give it a real try although, again, not thrilled by the day's fare. We upgraded to try both add ons for the day, a cold foie gras, which was good and the bison tenderloin, that was excellent. The salad was... More

Simplicity overpowers any outrageous nouveau culinary style and technique. The result is a fabulously delicious meal. The prix fix menu changes daily and is posted on their website. The main was a perfectly done beef tournedos, we had the decadent optional foie gras, preceded by a fresh salad with an avocado dressing. The cheese course was satisfying, while the chocolate...

Overall the best experience since moving to Toronto in July! Imagine being truly cared for in a restaurant by knowledgeable, truly passionate people! We found that every element of our dining experience was above and beyond. The wait staff know about wine, they know about food and flavour why? Lynn Crawford has taken dining to the next level! She has... More

Atmosphere, service, flavor, experience. Our server was personable, fun, and delivered on every detail. I had watched the menu offering for a few weeks before choosing the night / meal and it worked out perfectly. It is a set menu every night so I recommend that you plan ahead by checking the website regularly. Lynn was visible, and clearly having... More

Fist time here at Ruby Watch.co, Lynn Crawford is my favourite celebrity Chef and jumped at the available dinner reservations. Sadly, Chef Lynn was not there, she was filming in Tofino. The meal was pork roast with veggies, but everything was prepared perfectly. Not a fan of their version of baked beans, but that is just me. Staff were friendly... More

The place is elegant and has a fun old world vibe! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We ended up getting apps and splitting a couple meals. The price was as it should be for food this good!

visited Ruby Watch Co. March 12th 2015 as per 'date night' picked by my girlfriend. This was our second visit to RW Co. For the second time it did not disappoint, every course was awesome. Service was excellent. For those that are not aware of RW Co. the menu changes daily so you can look online as to your menu... More
