The building is impressive. The staff inattentive and clustered talking. The first few appetizers were appealing - the seafood platter came out to us burnt. The crab legs were freezer burned, the scallop was under cooked and over salted. The lobster tail was tough and...More

Our beloved restaurant o more than 40 years has changed. More waiters. Less food. New patio service. More cost. Everything is a la carte. Portions are oversized - to justify the price? Dinner for two was over $200 with a cocktail and a glass of...More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
