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

Beyond excellent and delicious food. Chef Lynn certainly treated us like her private guests and they nailed every single dish. Better get chef's table to see the kitchen. It was just stunning to see chef Lynn cooking there.

One of the best dinner experiences I've had. Every bite we had was delish! Service was bang on. Chef Lynn was involved in every aspect of the running of the restaurant. Super impressed!

Phone call to book reservation for family birthday celebration.Expecting out of town guests and excited to take them to RW-Co. Employee stated seating times and when I mentioned that we might like to stay and visit with our guests I was advised that we must leave at designated time. Needless to say No Bookings were made. Phone manner quite abrasive... More

I like the food at Ruby Watchco. You don't choose what you get (except for a couple of options for extra courses, which would require a huge appetite). I have been there twice, a couple of months apart, and the menu was very similar: salad with a yummy biscuit; fish cooked on a plank with side dishes; tiny piece of... More
