One winner, two losers

This was a strange experience. The place is lovely. The service is slow, but pleasant. The menu looks great--which is somewhat confusing. The mussels and frites were split between my sister and I--I quite enjoyed them but thought the fries were too cold. She loved the fries but thought there was something off about the mussels. Our entrees were a strange split. The garden pizza was cool and chewy. The stuffed meatballs were lacking any serious mozza presence which was a big disappointment and the pasta had been cooked too long. On the other hand, the beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the side vegetables were quite good. However, it *was* advertised as a peppered beef tenderloin and the pepper was not particularly present. The roasted pears that topped it were also cool. So, a confusing spread of dishes to be sure.

The meal started with a flat Keiths Red which was awful and tasted nothing like beer and got worse from there.The goat cheese in the salad tasted old and overcooked the lettuce in the salad was old and wilted the steak was completely overcooked and the service was terrible. I waited almost ten minutes before i was acknowledged and when i complained about the food was completely dimissed. Once I found out the server that was serving me was a manager I was sure I would never return.

ordered salmon and chicken benedicts, but the chicken I ordered showed up as chicken omelette, wrong order. waiter was very very slow to refill coffee, in fact had to ask for that. once bill was presented it took 12 minutes for the waiter to deal with it. I didn't make a fuss about my order thinking it would take a long time to correct. Must say the food was good. Just the service was slow.

I've been to Brownstone's several times now, and it's always a good experience. Friendly staff, and good food. Their brunch gets busy on Sundays, and deservedly so, but we were able to make a reservation the night before for our not-so-small party. The banana and Nutella pancakes were delicious, but topped with syrup, were a bit rich for my delicate stomach. Good fresh orange juice. The decor is lively and interesting, though sitting near the front door can be drafty in cool weather.

Best five Toronto restaurants to eat during Winterlicious

Best five Toronto restaurants to eat during Winterlicious

Equal parts comfy and funky, Brownstone offers up some pretty special pleasures on its Winterlicious menu. Think salmon tartar and shrimp crostini starters, veal cutlet and locally sourced chicken Francaise mains and a banana tempura closer that’ll have you swinging from the rafters.
