I'm guessing that our experience was not the typical experience. Our service from services Montana was very poor. While we tried hard to engage our server Montan she seemed very disinterested and ingenuous. Numerous mistakes by her and by kitchen. When I let management know...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
