Although the food is still superb (and perhaps the most consistently excellent in Toronto!) and the service is very good (particularly from those from the old location), the new location at the Windsor Arms is pretty but somewhat reserved and a more than a bit loud. We were there for a special occasion on the same night a large scale event was happening in the hotel's "courtyard" (i.e. ballroom). A group of individuals attending said event were dining next to us, and owing to their numbers were incredibly loud. When I had suggested Ici for our special evening, I had pictured a romantic dinner at the small, cozy location on Manning, where the service was amazing and there was a real opportunity to interact with the chefs and owners. Sadly, I think that vibe/atmosphere has morphed into something else at the Windsor Arms. I wish them luck (and appreciate their reasons for moving), but I think it's unlikely we'll be back any time soon.
