    A wonderful way to see Toronto

    After far too long in Toronto we finally went to the Tower. Should have done this years ago! Okay, yes it is expensive, but for that view..... We timed it perfectly and did a full revolution in the daytime and one at night - at an outside table! (5:10 arrival for a 5:30 reso on a late October Saturday). MAKE YOUR RESERVATION EARLY AND ARRIVE EARLY! The view truly is spectacular. The evening was a celebration, so we started off with cocktails and enjoyed a couple bottles of wine with dinner, Service was barely adequate - we needed more attention, plus he screwed up payment at the end of the meal. Anyhow, we all decided on the prixe fixe menu and were satisfied with the choice. Really for the price, a perfect meal is to be expected, and was not attained but there were no big complaints. The tuna appetizer was delicious, and yes small, but this is part of a multi-course menu - how much can you people eat!?! The salmon and beef were tasty enough, but sadly not hot, just lukewarm. Sigh. Ode to food served hot & on-time..... Dessert was excellent - tender apple crisp and rich chocolate.... We would have stayed even longer to enjoy the company and view, but sadly an early morning beckoned. We'll be back for a special occasion and think its a must-do if you're looking for a fancy meal and you're just visiting the area - its a beautiful way to see the city!

    Don't Do it

    What a huge disappointment yet again. We only go there for the view. The chef must be a sugar addict. Caesar salad dressing was absolutely not Caesar and SWEET. Tuna appetizer was an insult. So small. Steak was nice and tender but SWEET tasting. The tortelloni was served cold and far beyond aldente. Even crunchy. There were 10 of us with eight from Australia. Most were not happy with the meal. The table next to us returned several dishes. I paid for us all and I felt robbed. Never again.

    We did the prix fixe menu and were really happy with our meals. GREAT food. Service was not very good but not awful either. Tip- go at night or at least dusk, the view would have been much better, we timed our reservations poorly for the summer! Dessert was excellent as well

    Go for the experience not the food.

    While visiting Toronto with our young children my wife and I thought the compliimentary ride to the top of the tower would justify an expensive meal at the 360. We ascended to the top of the tower with high hopes of a fantastic meal to accompany the amazing scene out of the restaurant. Unfortunately it was only the latter that did not dissappoint us. The stuffed pork tenderloin itself was good, but the rest of the dish was too busy with flavours one of which was bacon. Doesn't pork tenderloin taste "porky" enough? Keeping the flavours simple would have improved the dish. The side (spatzle gratin) was unrecognizable. It was thought that it had been replaced with a bad rissotto. The arctic char was served on a bed of vegetables and was very good, even though it looked and tasted suspiciously like salmon. It was served with a grey foamy slosh of mushroom puree' that when served made the plate look completely unappetizing; nevertheless, we dug in and once one overlooked the appearance, did find the taste somewhat appealing, but not great. The celery root and potatoe gratin just did not have a good flavour, and the bread crumb was dry and flavourless taking a marginal side and making it completly undesirable. The kids chose from the children's menu. Chicken fingers and fries (good chicken fingers, fries not so much) and a pasta and chicken dish with white sauce (it was ok). Given the quality of the mains along with how anxious the kids were getting, we decided to take a pass on desert. We thought the wait staff did a very good job especially, as mentioned, when the kids were getting noisy. Everyone was very kind and made us feel welcome neverthless. In the end we don't regret going, all of us will remember eating at the restaurant at the top of the CN Tower while Toronto spun around below us. We all had a great time looking out the window and pointing at all the sights as they came into and then faded from view. It just seems a shame that this beacon of Canada couldn't have come with an equally memorable showcase for Canadian cuisine.

    Forgettable

    I ended up going her for Winterlicious and for a friend's birthday. I gave this place the benefit of the doubt and was hoping for some good things. After all, you're elevated while eating - that's a good thing. I don't know if its because it was a Tuesday night, but all the staff seemed confused about how to handle the restaurant layout. They had trouble bringing dish, manoevering around tables. It was a bit of a mess. Simple things like providing dessert utensils were challenging to them. Even the matire'd had trouble figure out how to seat a reserve party of four. It was just an awkward, uncomfortable experience all around. On top of that, they incorrectly processed payment at the end of the night. The food was underwhelming. The cauliflower bisque wasn't too bad, but served a little cold. The gnocchi was completely rubbery and the sauce was bland. It could possibly be the worst gnocci I've ever had. I figured they'd at least try to make the only vegetarian entree edible. Oh well. The high point for me was the apple crumble, which had a very good vanilla bean ice cream accompanying it. I'm aware Winterlicious is presented to customers as a price advantage. The prix fixe allows us to dine for a lower cost, but that's no excuse for serving cold, bland, ill-prepared food. I have no non-Winterlicious benchmark to compare it to, but I'm guessing this place is a dud all the time.

    My boyfriend and I just came back from here for our 1 year anniversary and..

    I have got to say that this was one of the BEST restaurants that I have ever been to. I don't understand some of the bad reviews, but it also depends when you go too. The service was pretty good, I found the waiter was really nice and even made conversation with us which was quite pleasent. At first, I was nervous about coming here due to some of the negative reviews, but I figured that it wouldn't hurt to try and we agreed that if we didn't like it we won't go back. I would LOVE to come back another year from now. The atmosphere is amazing too, we got to sit right by the window. Luckily we went there half hour to an hour early than our reservation to reserve the window seat, but the real reservations were made 2 months in advance. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the wine, the meals, dessert and my boyfriend really enjoyed his tea. I don't understand why the bad reviews, but then again to each of their own and everyone has different expierences. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for an anniversary, birthday, it's one of those restaurants that you would be better off going on only for special ocassions due to the price. Best time to go for a beautiful atmosphere is at night time when all the lights are on.

    Great view, awsome cocktails, OK food, OK service

    Our server was occupied with serving the table behind us because it was a party of 6-8, it kind of made us feel neglected and the food arrived 25-30 minutes after it was ordered and wasn't hot. They cook a steak properly, unfortunately I found mine to be a bit dry and not flavorful enough. The bread pudding that it came with was like a really good bread stuffing, but nothing to write home about. The seasonal vegetables were just bok choy and some asparagus (perfectly cooked asparagus). The grilled asparagus ordered on the side was really great except for the gross amount of overcooked mozzarella on top. Thankfully it was dried out enough that you can just peel it away. The lychee martini I had was stellar and one of the best I've had to date. I wouldn't recommend dessert since it's quite pricey and you get a teeny tiny portion which tastes adequate but not great. I recommend this restaurant to everyone at least once for the experience and the food is good, just not great but I think the cost is high because of the location not the quality.

    2nd Year Anniversary

    Me and my partner went there on July 03 2010. We have booked dinner at 7pm and arrived half an hour early, The host asked us if we would like to be seated or wait until 7, we were going to wait but he said its better to grab the seats now because its right by the window. That was nice of him to point it out since we did wanted to be seated by window anyway, to enjoy the scenery; it was a amazing view. The waiter was friendly. kind and patient. We chatted up a bit, before ordering. Offering water while we decided what to order. The food was delicious, cooked perfectly and looked great. From the reviews its clear that it is either a hit or miss. Because I was told the opposite of what I experienced. I been there twice and both times was good. Hope this helps.

    Will not go there again!!

    It was not my first time there... The first time that I went I really didn't like the food... I thought it was not worth the price,,, with insist a friend I went there again... The food was not good at all... The wine was so bad that I had to change it and still was bad... (BTW they are so proud of their wine cellar)... and in some cases like mine.. you might not be comfortable with it being revolving.. I don't object that, cuz it's one of its attractions... but... with that price, I would definitely needed better food and absolutely better service... and it was not only me who believed it could be a lot better... I ordered main food, wine and dessert and none was good....

    Not-your-average Toronto date night

    Not-your-average Toronto date night

    The biggest tourism cliché in Toronto is a trip to the CN Tower, but that doesn't mean its revolving restaurant isn't worth a try, especially about 1000 feet in the air. For one, the seasonal menu features some of the most high-end gourmet fare in the city. They serve exquisitely plated dishes like house-smoked Atlantic salmon and Ontario lamb. If you want a taste of Canada in this city, the 360 Restaurant is a great place to start and don't worry, its revolving feature moves slow enough that you can still enjoy every bite with the view. Wheelchair Accessible: Yes.

    Ring in a low-key New Year's Eve in Toronto

    If you're after a quiet, romantic dinner, try 360 Restaurant. Think house-smoked Atlantic salmon or slow braised veal osso bucco served 1,151 feet in the air, with a slow, rotating view of Toronto's skyline in the background. Winos will admire the wine cellar, officially designated by Guinness World Records as the highest in the world and holding an impressive collection of over 550 wines from all over the globe. Any prix fixe meal includes access to the Look Out and Glass Floor levels. While the kitchen closes at 10:15 pm, guests are welcome to stay and count down to midnight.
