Many steakhouses claim to be excellent for a long period of time. This one has delivered consistently for more than 3 decades. I should know, I've been going there with my family for two decades, as I did last week. The 8oz filet mignon is spectacular, ceasar salad (for two) is prepared tableside with minimal fanfare but maximal delciousness. Even the little starter plates of pickles, peppers and olives, accompanied by fresh garlic bread tickles the mouth in a "comfort food" way. A fabulous wine list complements the entire evening in a restaurant in an 8sided building. Whether for celebrating (as we were) or a private meal with friends and colleagues, you will never be disappointed. Ever. Even if you venture to their ribs, fish or lobster. 3 of us with wine was $270 but worth every penny.

I've always found the dining experience at the Octagon to be excellent. Portions tend to be big and the food quality is always first class. I generally order a medium rare bone-in rib or rib-eye steak, but my wife had lamb chops last night that were very good. Complimentary pickles, peppers and black olives, along with old-school garlic bread, get the taste buds going.
The extensive wine list covers both old and new world and the mark-ups are very reasonable compared to some high-end Toronto steak houses. Steve does a good job picking wines that he thinks his customers will like and he prices them to sell.

Steaks are great and the caesars are made from scratch. The atmosphere is very elegant and classy. This is a great place for cozy comfortable dinners.

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.
