Sublime. Well-situated at Bay and Bloor, a little treasure. The cuisine is fantastic, the room is a little mediocre, but the service is excellent. If you're downtown, absolutely worth a visit.

Dined here for lunch with several colleagues in a large group. Service was so-so. Not exactly lacking, but also not exactly attentive. Meal was also mediocre. In Toronto's plentiful and competitive restaurant scene this is a don't bother for the price point.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
