After we left there we were starving and decided to stop by at this neat looking Octagon shaped restaurant called the Octagon Restaurant. We... read more

Old world charm, comfortable (if dated) ambiance, skilled staff, and expertly prepared food. The menu is vast but not particularly interesting or inventive - your basic steakhouse fare. Prices are on par with the level of quality, portions and overall dinning experience. I recommend the ceasar salad and shrimp cocktail. All steaks are perfectly cooked. Side dishes are bland and...

My wife and I try to get to the Octagon at least once a month…it's expensive but the food is incredible. If you love garlic then have the caesar salad which they will make right at table side. One of the best tasting steaks in town. You won't be disappointed. Can't say enough about the service…amazing professionals from the moment... More

The Octagon was definitely a place that I wanted to check out. Stalwart in the community. So I went with my family. It turned out to be just the 4 of us in the entire restaurant. The service was ok, nothing special. Our waiter was busy talking to another waiter and missed us waving several times for assistance (water, took... More

The giant shrimp cocktail seems to be a must-have as we see it on almost every table. But honestly it's more visually impressive than it tastes. The bacon-wrapped scallops were better, and the lobster bisque as well. We had the veal oscar and broiled scallops for entrees, and they are generally better than the appetizers. It was quite busy when... More

Food is very good, ambience and surroundings great. Servers in black suits and ties make the dining classy.

Went with my wife for a special evening event. We got a private room that my wife was allowed to put some flowers before we got there. The service was the best I ever had. Valet parking to coat check in. The restaurant inside is decorated with wood and colored glass and looks very expensive. The food was great. I... More

The octagon is by far one of the best restaurants in Thornhill and one of the best steak houses in the entire GTA area we live across the street and have been there dozens of times over the years for intimate dinners as a couple and large family events in their private room. The stakes are always excellent and we... More
