Great New Year's Eve Experience

I had never been before and was a bit nervous booking for new year's eve dinner. To my surprise the entire experience was lovely. We had booked the last seating and rang in the new year at the restaurant. The staff was amazing this evening. Everyone went out of their way to ensure the guests... read more

My husband and I decided to go to The Octagon Restaurant for date night. Great atmosphere and décor. The service was excellent and we both really enjoyed our meals. We both start out with the Caesar salad. They come to the table and make it fresh while you watch. This was the best Caesar salad we have ever had. The... More

We've been coming here for years as a family and with friends. Fantastic table side Caesar salad and table side Chateaubriand. Come hungry as the portions are large. They start you off with complimentary assorted olives/pickles, peppers and garlic bread. Old school serving staff in black & white combined with the stained glass and cozy booths make this a great...

We had a party of nine that went for a company lunch. Everything was waiting for us as we arrived. Drink orders were taken promptly and when we were ready to order our waiter was too. All the appetizers were very delicious, with particular praise to the huge shrimp cocktail which were bigger than some lobster tail appetizers I have... More

Despite having a reservation we were placed right next to a service station, which was not immediately obvious while we were being seated. I had ordered medium rare steak which was served cooked medium to well done, asparagus which was undercooked and hard with what was listed in the menu as hollandaise sauce but in fact was a yellow, tasteless...

I wouldn't agree with the $$$ it's definitely a $$$$ but that's beside the point. The restaurant has a lot of history and has been on the same lot for over 40 years. So it probably was there when Thornhill was more of a town outside Toronto then it is now. But I digress. The meal was excellent the steaks... More

My hubby and I had heard great things about this place - we had to check it out, and weren't disappointed! The food was phenomenal! Service was great, we couldn't have asked for more. The caesar salad was to die for and I had the steak neptune which was great - so much food though! I don't remember if the... More
