“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

My husband and I decided to have dinner after a day of wine touring in the Bench region. It's located on the 8th floor with a view of the lake and the Toronto skyline lite up at night. We were surprised to find a couple leaving and us being the only patrons for the rest of the evening. I was a bit dubious but the waitress was very friendly and made us feel comfortable right away. Diana Krall was playing over the sound system, the view was great and the ambience set the mood. There was a good selection on the menu. I chose a delicious leek soup served nice and hot. My husband chose the large scallops in a mushroom sauce. For our mains I opted for the macadamia nut crusted halibut and my husband chose the pork. I have to say the food was to absolutely amazing! The young chef even came out to greet us and ask how our meal was - nice touch. We were thoroughly impressed and I can tell you we frequently dine out and have travelled extensively. This restaurant should not be missed whether you are staying at the hotel, just passing through or a local of the region! Hopefully you will have the same experience as it is definitely worth checking out?

Thank you for your fabulous review. Panorama is indeed a hidden gem. Over the past 6 months we have elevated our food with the acquisition of a talented local chef, and we are continually improving our service standards. We are so happy that you enjoyed all aspects of your dining experience and appreciated your kind words on trip advisor.

“Update on first review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Since our first review of our dining experience we contacted the restaurant. They in turn got back to us with sincere apologies and advised they are revamping the restaurant menu and working on making a much better dining experience. We will try it again.

“Good Food”

Bogart's has very good food and menu items. Great for breakfast and bar food. They make a great rueben sandwich and chicken wings.

“Celebration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Don't pass up the opportunity to enjoy a fine meal and great view at this restaurant. Right off the QEW it is not hard to find. We had a celebration of over 30 people and the restaurant provided very good service in handling all the orders in a timely fashion. The coordinator handled all my requests timely without hesitation.

“Live down the street”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

It has been a couple of years since we last ate upstairs. The location is great for us and the view amazing. However once again the experience fell short. Our waitress could not keep up with patrons [she was alone] so we waited for everything. Appetizer was not bad; we had the scallops. Entrée - Veal chop, garlic mashed with a mushroom ragout. Ragout was way over sauteed, the mashed potato was barely warm and the veal looked great until it was cut into; it well done plus. Stuffed Sole with twice baked potato. Twice baked could have come out of oven 2 or 3 minutes earlier, Sole was good. Vegetables were just ok. Crème Brûlée only about 1/3 was carmelized, it was good, but my wife was not happy with the hint of butane. She hates that when I do it at home too. March 14 2013. P.S wine came after our Entrees. Happy 26th.
