Tried this for summerlicious - just $23 for a 3 course lunch. Starters were very good, the scallops were just right, even if the green sauce was more interesting than delicious. Duck confit was generous although a bit ore sauce would have made it even...More

Been back multiple times, whether for date night or for special occasions with extended family (birthdays, anniversaries). Never disappoints. Doesn't matter if you're looking for something casual or fancy, this one fits...More

I feel like I haven’t been to the Rosewater in a long time- but the $3.25 drinks on Thursday night brought me back! How can you complain about cheap drinks?? My only suggestion is adding music or a DJ!

The server was extremely nice but seemed a bit discombobulated. The decor was nice but the vibe was very low and depressing. The food was mediocre, I had the prawn not realizing it was deep fried and the duck was very tough. The wine list...More

We went to this venue under the suggestion of a friend and were not disappointed. We happened to stumble in on a "Winterlicious" Menu evening and the pre-fixe options were wonderful. There were options for all kinds of tastes and at a great price ($38CAD...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
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
