Dined here for dinner. The restaurant was quiet so we had a perfect table in the back corner. Great food and wine, pricey but worth it. Great staff as well and lovely location in Yorkville.

Three of us ate there recently for dinner. Pleasant modern environment with good service. Interesting and varied menu, a mixture of many types of cuisine. Made a nice change from the standard North American fare. We would happily eat there again.

We sat outside on a beautiful day. It always helps when the sun shines. Just wanted a light lunch. We had the meatballs, crab and two glasses of wine plus coffee. Very relaxed, great food, lively and definitely a place to people watch. Perfect!

Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
