This restaurant has recently received a lot of hype in the Toronto press, and because of this, we decided to visit it for lunch with my mother.
The ROM has received a face lift in recent years, and with the addition of the famous 'Crystal' there came a new restaurant. The ROM is an excellent museum and its museum shop is one of the best in Toronto, however, this restaurant is rather minimalist and soul-less. Service was slow and somewhat pretentious. I object to being given what appeared to be bought chips to accompany my meal. I ordered the Poutine of Chicken which was served in a barely cooked jacket potato. I had three pieces of chicken - none of which were breast and the portion was pretty small. My husband ordered a hamburger in a bun, this was secured with a gherkin and a cocktail stick. He said it was extremely mundane, and that he would have enjoyed a MacDonald's hamburger better. He also said it was not really hot enough. My mother ordered goats cheese and tomato on a type of pitta bread, which she found pretty tasteless and left most of it. We did enjoy the view, but felt that there was room for a lot of improvement in this rather dreary restaurant which reminded us of a canteen. There are many better places to eat in Toronto.
