    The King Street favourite is back with new cocktails (such as a cucumber Collins), new wines, a new chef, a new menu, and old brick... Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Read more

    Brassaii: perfect date place, killer ambience, delish housemade basil ice cream, top-notch cocktail menu 4/5

    Service is terrible (expect delays), but the wine list is not

    Renovation much improves the space. Food was tasty - but they still struggle with service. Undecided if I would go again I am sorry to say.

    Must try: the raviolo. (How can you go wrong with shaved black truffle, parmigiano and cippolini confit?)

  • Rob d.

    Simple, delicious food, no complications or pretension.

    New reno looks great. Lounge up front, more out of the way dining spots, and a better bar. The Croque Monsieur is great!

    twas my baby for awhile. don't like when they charge cover as it creates that 'club promoter pseudo elitist' feel. perfect for summer thursdays with good djs. courtyard great for chilling or brunch

    Great food all around and we found the service to be top notch. Only downside -- hard to enjoy the patio when people are smoking around you.

    I hear one of the top regrets from people on their deathbeds was having the guts to try more new things. Try ostrich.

    Service is sub-standard; delays galore. Music is horrible (felt like I was at the dentist).

    The chicken and waffle on the brunch menu is great! Waffles are seasoned with herb that fully complements the chicken.

    TERRIBLE service. Waited a whole hour for food to come. Food (i had the duck) was good when it eventually arrived tho portions were small. There are better options on that strip

  • Kathryn A.

    Their pastry chef is world-renowned & amazing. The maple ice cream bacon praline cookie watermelon dessert is off the hook!

    Kathryn A. · June 18, 2013
  • Andrea S.

    They have great espresso and there's a wicked band, full of hotties, that plays on the patio on Tuesday nights.

    The chicken and waffles has a fresh twist. Savory herbed waffles with a bit of lemon zest makes it light and tasty! A definite must try if this is something you are in the mood for!

    KING & SPADINA - This comfortable bistro-diner serves upscale comfort food. Walk through the iron gates, across the courtyard to the cedar patio & enjoy a drink from their extensive wine menu.

    Don't check your coat in. It will literally take you 1/2 an hour for you to check out. Food and drinks are sub par for the price. Step it up!!
