The Octagon is a throwback to the old days. The steaks are very good and they make your Caesar salad at your table. Service is professional if not overly warm. The meals are at the higher end of the scale, so unless you've got a business account (which I assume most of the regulars have), this would be for special occasions only. If you were not sad that the old style steakhouses were fading, then give this place a pass. But if that was your thing, then definitely worth a try.

Incredible food and service. The atmosphere is wonderful and the only complaint i would have is the bathrooms are tired... they need a renovation.

Expensive....YES....Worth It....YES!
The Octogon is not a place that I frequent often. It is usually beyond my price range for going out. But on the odd occasions that I have been here, the quality of both the Food & Service is second to none. If I was a rich man, i would go more often

We just had a wonderful dinner here, on a Saturday night. It was packed two weeks after New Years. Reservations needed. Free valet parking. Started with shrimp cocktail...sure glad we ordered just one to share as the 4 shrimp were huge...probably 6 inches long each. $35 and very filling for two people. My 8 oz filet was a good steak, but my partner's 12 oz pepper steak was outstanding (but not flamed at table). We each had a glass of wine, a starter mixed drink, coffee, and Tia Maria. Bill came to $195 before tip. Service by 'Tom' was outstanding. There was not an empty seat in the place. The table of 5 next to us had a huge seafood platter...it looked wonderful and we'll have that next time. Word of advice...be hungry when you go. Enjoy.

The restaurant , is one of the best in Richmond Hill. It;s classy decor, the service is beyond expectation, very friendly serving staff, and attention to detail. Its a bit expensive but well worth it. Great place to celebrate an anniversary.
