“Flavourful food matched by superior service”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

In Toronto for business a friend invited me to this restaurant and I was immediately impressed with the tasteful decor. The pear and endive salad was impeccably dressed and the rack of lamb melt-in-your-mouth. Not an inexpensive restaurant but the food and service worth it. Must say too that the quality of the ladies' washroom was excellent (my tipping point with some restaurants). Excellent location if you're in Yorkville.

“Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We recently enjoyed a Christmas lunch with friends at Pangea. The overall experience was enjoyable both from a service, ambiance, and food aspect. Our server was friendly and attentive without being pushy. The lunch portions were satisfying but not overwhelming, although the wine ordered was too chilled for our taste. The salted caramel pana cotta was quite delicious as was the lemon tart. I would definitely visit again.

“HIGH END BUSIENSS LUNCH”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Very good place for a business lunch away fort eh financial district but be prepared to pay. the prices are amongst the highest I have seen for lunch in Toronto. However, the food is well prepared. The fish enters are great, and the deserts re worth trying. Generally good food, but pricey.

“Disappointed after two wonder previous trips”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

The service was poor and the steaks were pretty tasteless. After having eaten at this restaurant twice previously and having divine meals, we were profoundly disappointed with this last experience. We'll give it one more try though, as it may simply have been an off night for the staff and chef.
