Usually a great place for breakfast or lunch, but my wife went down for breakfast one day at 9am and it took the staff forever to seat her and serve her....not usual for this place!

We arrived kind of late, so we just had dinner at the hotel bar. Wow, what a great meal! We each had a pasta dish, and I ordered dessert - which was so, so good. I highly recommend having dinner here.

Here for business so had a late dinner in a mostly deserted restaurant inside the Toronto Hilton. The interesting food and wine-by-the-glass menus were not quite marched in execution, but close enough. Service was excellent. The physical space is lovely, spread out on two levels around an ample bar. I gather there's an outdoor cocktail lounge upstairs but did not... More

If you have to stay in your hotel to eat, you could do a lot worse than Tundra, located in the downtown Hilton Hotel. Breakfast is the best meal, but interesting salads like Fresh Kale make lunch and dinner pleasant as well. Staff are very friendly and appear a bit eccentric for a chain hotel restaurant.

Attending something The Four Seasons centre? Tundra is a very short walk away. Visited with an 85-year-old friend who chose the restaurant; we explained we had ballet tickets & the waiter was most accommodating, returning quickly to take our food order, brining us our wine promptly. We both enjoyed everything we had - including the shared dessert platter [yum!]

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.
