Any location that can serve a perfect risotto to almost a hundred guests, reserves my respect. The small appetizers served during the reception were good, the mushroom risotto excellent and so it was the large portion of braised lamb. Good but not outstanding service.

Very nice two tiered restaurant that used to be the gas company. Large portions of tasty food. A bit noisy, as there were two large parties upstairs.

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

Stunning restaurant, excellent food, great atmosphere. Truly our favourite restaurant in the city. Been back multiple times, whether for date night or for special occasions with extended family (birthdays, anniversaries). Never disappoints.

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!

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

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
