Very good but I was expecting more

The food was certainly very good, but not great or memorable. The chef owner's TV pesonna led me to have much higher expectations. Hot and sour soup good but I've had better at 1/3 the price. Shrimp was good. Very professional service. Seating a bit uncomfortable and atmosphere not trendy enough... read more

Shrimp was good. Very professional service. Seating a bit uncomfortable and atmosphere not trendy enough for the high price of a meal.

It's pretty standard fare. Nothing exciting but the food is OK. the service can be very erratic. Breakfast is a buffet or menu optio0n - we found the buffet uninteresting.

Very attentive and fast service. The food and selection of the buffet are very good. Great value compared to most of the Toronto Hotel. Change your coffee supplier as the coffee is very weak. I must drink way too much Starbucks.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
