if you go to a friend's house for dinner you eat what they cook, there is no menu and they often serve things family style. That's the concept here - the chef buys what looks good and creates a 4 course fixed price menu. We started with a beef tartar that was an optional add-on; it was really good with... More

this was my first visit to Ruby Watch CO. I will say from the time I walked in to the time I left I was very impressed. The staff were very friendly and look like they enjoy working there. The atmosphere was very nice, quaint, lots of conversation going on which would tell you that people are enjoying themselves, the... More

Everything from the service, atmosphere and of course food, was amazing! The restaurant is warm and inviting, the service was great, very knowledgeable staff, friendly and quite amusing at times. The food was delicious, so tasty and high quality. The way things are served felt very home style, I felt like I was in my mothers kitchen. I was very... More

This was an amazing meal. Everything was cooked, prepared and served perfectly. I also found it to be very, very reasonably priced for the quality of the meal. The only thing that was pricey (for Toronto) was the wine, but even that I chose one of the more expensive bottles that evening.

Food was good, service was a bit erratic. Good starter salad We had trout as our main which was very tasty. If there is something you are allergic to or don't like, speak up and they will try to accommodate.

We started with cocktails that were strong and really delicious, and then were so happy with the great meal we had! A salad of mixed greens with grapefruit and sesame served with yummy cheddar biscuits to start, Main was... More

My overall rating would actually be higher than three but lower than four. Our meal was very good, but was more like home cooking than anything remarkable. They essentially only have two sittings one at 6:30 PM and one at 8:30 PM. We felt a little rushed.They appear to only take bookings by phone. The noise level was quite high,... More

Chef Crawford creates the most delicious meals - even foods that I don't usually like are somehow transformed into something I love. The staff are fun and welcoming, providing excellent and friendly service. I know a set menu isn't for everyone, but I particularly enjoy making the leap of faith (I have never been disappointed) and it is a relief... More

Absolutely loved this place! Great atmosphere, amazing cocktails and the food was super. There were some dietary restrictions for some of us and it was no problem whatsoever. Imaginative and inventive. Will definitely return! Also a huge nod to the serving staff, they are exceptional!
