Oyster Boy

Reviewed By 843candicek

My husband loves oysters so we decided to try this place out. The PEI savage oysters were amazing and one we had never tried before. The house made cocktail sauce was also great. For entrees we got fish tacos and steam clams. Both dishes were great. Service was top notch. Highly recommend. And if there’s a wait, check out the cocktail bar next door!

Antler Kitchen and Bar

Reviewed By travelgrrrl1

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Toronto. My boyfriend recently took me for a birthday dinner and the food, service, everything is amazing. The cocktails are unique and delicious. We had the venison tartar and mushroom yakatori to start. My boyfriend said the mushroom might have been his favourite of the meal. Both were excellent. I had the wild boar ragu pasta. So good. Still dreaming of it. And my boyfriend had the special fish. Light and tasty. We had the strawberry semi-fredo for dessert. Derek at the bar provided excellent service. All and all another amazing meal at Antler.

Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse

Reviewed By 950kt

Visited Jacobs & co. in September 2019. This restaurant is located on King West near Spadina. The restaurant itself, and our entire experience, was very enjoyable and satisfying from beginning to end. The service was attentive, relaxed, timely and jovial. A congenial and very professional atmosphere. The server who recommended a wonderful wine for us was extremely knowledgeable and passionate, a pleasure to listen to. Table-side Caesar salad was a treat. Parking validation is available.Very extensive wine list.All in all, this is a very fine restaurant. Highly recommended.

Rasa

Reviewed By floradove

We’ve been to Rasa a couple of times, and both were very pleasant experiences. The food was delicious - we particularly love the roasted Brussels sprout and crispy onions in some delicious sauce dish, as well as the chopped salad, and the mushroom truffle gnudi. All food was very good, really. They often (or maybe always) have little surprise extras for you at the start and end of meals. A little amuse-gueule at the beginning, and a little bite of something sweet at the end - really nice!!!

Refreshing to have a business lunch spot with consistent great healthy copious food. Been here a few times during business trips to Toronto. The large salads with proteins are fresh, well seasoned and always a tasty add on protein. Service is accommodating and attentive. Some spots are noisy but overall great ambience.

Richmond Station is a stopping place, a bustling neighbourhood restaurant in the downtown core. We are committed to delicious food and excellent hospitality.

Reviewed By ilive4sun

We had just arrived in Toronto and were looking for something to hold us over until dinner. We had reservations at Richmond Station for 8:15 p.m., but since it was raining and very close we went here looking for a cup of soup. We had the pumpkin soup, which was very good. But we realized they did not have a formal bar, which was where we were hoping to sit that night. (Yes, we are barflies.) So we canceled our reservation for dinner, but are glad we got to enjoy the place and the good service anyway.

I like choosing restaurants based on location (close to hotel) and Tripadvisor reviews. Because of Labour Day weekend, a lot of restaurants in Toronto were closed, which forced me to look at a larger area around our hotel. This one got decent reviews, but did mean we had to take a taxi. Some Canadian friends decided to join us, and contacted the place to change the booking.They did not need to have bothered, as it was almost empty. It does not look great - it's a dingy pub without much atmosphere. It will probably look and feel better if it is full of people.The service was fine. The food wasn't. At least it was cheap. And there was nothing wrong with the beers. Altogether, this might be a good place for some drinks, if it a bit busier. But I would give the food a miss. I have no idea why so many of the reviews are so positive about the food, because this was not our experience.
