My family of five rarely get much family time but we were excited to head to Wish for a family brunch. We made a reservation a couple of weeks earlier but quickly discovered the futility of a reservation. We arrived 5 minutes early and waited for 5 minutes without being acknowledged. Finally the manager asked if we had a reservation... More

Searching for an interesting dinner venue, my daughter and I happened upon Wish and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our dinner selections were both excellent, Bouillabaisse and feature pasta along with an easy going patio (enclosed of course) with heaters. Would definitely return.

This restaurant clicks so many boxes for me. It has a chic interior not expensive but arty. Plenty of staff. I had Prime Rib and an excellent wine; generous portion with delectable sauce. I'd go to this restaurant again. Be prepared for less than intimate conversation.... Atmosphere is great.

I was booked at the hotel right next door and the desk clerk highly recommended that this restaurant was truly well worth the 50' walk..lol.. So I went and boy and I happy I did. It truly a cute intimate setting. Decor is nice but understated. I was not a fan of the new age music however. The menu is... More

Sat outside for an evening meal.Lovely meal,good service. Good choice. There are heaters,so not cold. Although we had to ask for one of the overhead ones to be switched off. Was so hot. Would recommend for a pleasant meal.Was recommended to us. Would say bit more than mid range price. Of course depends what you are having.

This is a super cute place especially in the summer. I love the decor. Food was good. I had a roasted turkey sandwich that had a lot of flavour. A little slow if you are looking for something quick - but not too slow to make you angry. The service is almost a little too casual and I'm not sure... More

I've heard fantastic things about this restaurant but after my experience yesterday I am reluctant to ever recommend or go back again. Upon arriving we waited for 15 minutes without anyone even acknowledging our existence. I finally had to call the hostess over and tell her we had a reservation. She then made us wait another 10 minutes to sit... More

Went for brunch and tried a burger which I'd say was pretty good. Its a small, cute little place. There wasn't anything special about it that would bring me back though. If you're in the area and stumble on it, try it out.

The location is great and the style is nice...modern but comfortable. Service was okay but nothing special. Food was average. My friend's burger (meat patty) was so slanted you could ski off it...1 inch on one side and 3 inch on the other. I had the warm lentil salad and it was mediocre. Not terrible but I wouldn't repeat.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
