We enjoyed an evening out - the food (traditional steak meal) was outstanding and the service was excellent. The decor is very conservative/classy. The meal was pricey - but not out of line for similar properties. We will go back.

At the end of each year my wife and give presents to our 3 boys and their wives. Most of the time great thought is put into these gifts and sometime we hit it right on and many time we miss the mark. Out of the clear blue for this year we thought as our present we would take everyone... More

I dined here January 10th for a birthday and it was divine. We ordered the table side ceaser salad, steak Neptune & espresso/Irish coffee. Where do I start? The actual restaurant is in the shape of an octagon (hence the name) and has a very romantic ambiance to it. Chandeliers, statues, stained glass, lanterns on the table, dark & cherry... More

Went for a dinner to the Octagon with my family. The service was nice old school style. Food (salads, fish, stakes) was good quality with basic presentation, but not cheap. Classic interior, nice place for a family event. We had a good time!

I find the food okay but overpriced and the wait staff obnoxious! Would definitely not return to this restaurant!! There are other places for steak that give you a much better dining experience. Such a shame too because it used to be much better :(

Arrived late in town, staying in north York area, trying to look for a decent place that would still accept a 9:00pm res for a party of 7. Took a chance with The Octagon. The moment we stepped into octagon, we were greeted and seated with grace and efficiency rarely seen at restaurants these days, and things only got better... More

As others have said the garlic bread is excellent as well as the pickles. We have ordered the seafood platter for two, several times. Usually it is excellent..the last time is wasn't as good. But they used to have scampi that were awesome. Bring them back please! Salmon has been nicely cooked, but not great. Haven't had the steak, but... More

What a shame! Such a beautiful restaurant with poor food. Several people had the Filet of Sole. It arrived warm and overcooked. It was soggy. No one asked us if everything was OK! I probably would not have said anything because I would not want to spoil anyone else's lunch. Service was OK. We asked for separate bills... this seemed... More

We attended a family dinner at the Octagon. The service was wonderful and they were very attentive. My family loved the garlic bread and I enjoyed my salad. Their salad portions are quite sizable. I ordered their shrimp for my main course and was a little dissapointed. Some of them were on the tough side. No I didn't send them... More
