    Given the choice, I'd always sit at the bar. The food is all on the lighter side, but the fish is always good.

    You can’t really get much closer to the stars than the elegant Luma Restaurant (330 King Street West), situated on the second floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Read more

    The roasted St-Canut piglet is fantastic -- perfectly crispy and not too fatty. Goes great with a Big Rig IPA. Excellent service here, too.

    Sunday brunch is fantastic. Both the Eggs Benedict & Omelette were spectacular. Fresh fruit juice (grapefruit & apple cider) were great too! Good alternative to busy Canteen downstairs.

    Excellent service! Stephen was fantastic. One of the best servers I've ever had. Lobster and shrimp burger was absolutely excellent.

    Ask for Laura...she unlocks the hidden gems of the menu, a sommelier in the making and if you're lucky, may even join you or a glass of wine.

    Specials are the way to go. Just had the most utterly spectacular hollandaise oysters and mushroom soup with ricotta and truffle oil. Was sad when it ended ;)

    Part of O&B chain. Someone left a tip that the Caesar salad was amazing. I found it flat and boring. The veal shank was also not what I was expecting. Great service though and expansive wine list. Try

    This is one of our favourite brunches in the neighbourhood. You can't go wrong with their eggs benedict.

    Celeriac soup of the day was best soup of life; and while you can, you must be transported to the Chocolate Factory with Willy Wonka's dessert.
