Location is great for before an event at Ontario Place. Service is very slow. Beautiful views.
Overall our experience was good however a few notable items that I did mention to the server.
1: When making the reservation I was committed to a patio table by the gentlemen attending the phone however arriving at the restaurant we were not given this option as the patio was full.
2: When serving an additional bottle of wine to the table the server should always have the customer taste the wine prior to adding it to the prior wine in the glass.
3: The finish of my Lamp Chops and my wife's Strip Loin were both incorrect. I ordered Med Rare for the Lamp and received Well Done and my wife ordered Medium for her Steak and received Medium Rare
Our lead server Konrad was very good and certainly means we will return for a future visit.
Overall hotel ambience is modern corporate with boutique touches:
lots of glass and black with pops of colour and plush textures.
Falcon Skybar boasts a spectacular wrap around view of both the city and the water. Spend happy hour watching small aircraft at Billy Bishop airport. Drinks are pricey but worth it for the view. Service is very polished but lacks attention during peak times..staff friendliness helps you grin and bear the wait for drinks. Ensure to bring a sweater if seated outdoors. If staying inside....the noise does become difficult to swallow as things get busy.
Maxx’s kitchen is upscale casual with lots of windows framing a view of Ontario place. The balcony patio over looks the front entrance driveway but once seated your view is more of the waterfront than pavement.
Service was Excellent - our top-notch server Veronica was prompt, professional, politely engaging and knew the menu (her suggested wine pairings were great). Our terrific meal reflected the hotel - corporate with boutique flourishes: squash salad of acorn rather than butternut, with fresh arugula..pumpkin seed garnish and fennel were nice touches. Correctly executed Cornish hen main was moist and flavourful.
Definitely will return before the secret is out on the great service and wonderful view.
Wonderful spot for a late lunch. The hotel is magnificent as well
I would recommend the resto for the desserts. You have an outstanding pastry chef.But it was too cold in the dining room.The chilly air might be welcome when the temps are in the 30°s but on Father's Day , we were cold. I kept my jacket on throughout... food should be enjoyed in pleasant temperatures, not in a chilly breeze.
Very pleasant servers..
It might be wise t have more signage from the parking lot.. we were puzzled as to direction..
We felt like family:)
Really pretty inside, food was well done... oh but the service. Somehow they didn’t account for the Budweiser stage events of the evening, and were waaaay understaffed it seemed. They were friendly enough about it, but, it was hard to get their attention. I would definitely give this place another chance but I would just recommend that they pay more attention to the events going on in proximity to their location.
Food and cocktails were fabulous... service was a little slow. They will need to figure out how to service the pre-concert crowd.
Fantastic food, service and patio views!
We had reservations for dinner. It’s a very casual spot. Food was fresh. I ordered one of the their specialty dishes which was also recommended by the waitress. The veal sandwich was the best I’ve had. Looking forward to going back to Maxx’s
Maxx’s Kitchen is located inside the Hotel X. The restaurant is bright and airy. They have a patio with views of the lake. I went for brunch and ordered the cheesecake Belgian waffle with a side of bacon. It was tasty and beautifully plated. The server was friendly and efficient.
Great food and service. Fast but not rushed. Server and kitchen accommodated a substitution I was looking for. Atmosphere busting but in a good way. Loved the views!
Slow service, good food.
Was my husband‘s birthday The staff were friendly and went above and beyond to please us. The food was delicious. I’m a vegan and there were options for me too
Ate dinner here prior to a concert! Food was great, service was fab & quick as they knew we were going to a concert! Nice place/atmosphere....will definitely be back!!
Great venue - would highly recommend - food was outstanding as well as the service.
Great views, great design, great food, great service. Would gladly return next time I'm in Toronto. Thoughtful modern and hip spot.
Rude waiter, seemed like we were inturruoting his night, tried to rush us out before the rush hit but nobody was coming in, only like 5 tables occupied. There was a loud talkative cook as well, seem to be a supervisor, I shouldn't be hearing your comments from our table. Overpriced but I guess you are paying for the location.
Thank you for a great Mother's day brunch! Wonderful view of the lake and happy the game was on to keep my son entertained! Wonder hostess and the waitress was attentive!
We attended Mother's Day Brunch at Maxx's Kitchen and it was delicious! The kale salad was, in particular, a treat. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant; the table and surroundings clean. I would recommend Maxx's to my friends and family without hesitation.
We went for Mother’s Day brunch. The food was decent but the service was terribly organized and just not well trained. This is purely a management problem not the staff. Delays from the time we sat down, to the lack of people available to follow up with, no consistent server, and then when we’re done eating the constant requests to top up our water. Other tables were far more upset than us and being vocal with their displeasure. It’s a relatively nice looking place and has a great view but this experiences really gives the impression of a hotel attempting to be upscale but can’t deliver.
I would absolutely recommend Maxx's Kitchen. The food and presentation were unique and very enjoyable. Loved the views too!
Nice layout of restaurant! Bright. Lots of windows over looking the lake. Food was good service was good
Excellent and attentive service. We had an early dinner with visiting out of town friends and it was our first time to dine at Macy's Kitchen, we were impressed by above all the service, ambience (awesome sweeping views of Lake Ontario) and the generous portions on our plates. The Calamari was the best! Exquisite desserts. Will definitely recommend to friends & family!
Nice location with views over the lake. Food was excellent as was the service from Lauren. Price was high (CA$80 breakfast for two) but that said, would probably go back.
I have had an email to say we missed the reservation, which clearly isn’t true, so don’t know what happened there.
We had their beef burger and Caesar salad, both great. Their sauce/dressing made them stand out. My wife is a lover and connoisseur of all things potato- and loves their fries (she brought me here after her first experience). So, food was grand - they have more refined dishes but they elevate the simple fare well.
The service was great. It was not busy when we happened to be there, but nonetheless the host, hostess and waitress were helpfully sociable and efficient.
The ambiance is fab - largely due to the whole glass wall facing the Lake gives a soothing and nice view. The fit and finish of the place, the ambiance is perfectly nice - not haughty, good for casual but brand new and clean and nice enough decor.
Felt good, looked good, tasted good. We'll be back.
Excellent wait staff, I’ve never had happier or friendlier waiters/waitress. The Decore was on point and the views of Lake Ontario spectacular.
Food is absolutely not good and way overpriced for the final product. We would not go back.
Very disappointing. Server not at all friendly, food so-so and overpriced. Really a shame because the hotel is great.
Nice place, great atmosphere and ambiance. The calamari and the artichoke dip are amazing! Ordered the fish and chips for mains but I’d recommend you pick something else instead. The fish fillets were extremely oily and heavily battered - avoid it if you can. Overall good restaurant and decent service. Don’t forget to try the $5 Mimosas on the weekend.
Food is amazing but the service is slow which is weird cause it wasn't too busy
Food is awesome . But servers need more. Breakfast buffet is great . But eggshell appear in omelette.
I was expecting a designed room but the atmosphere was cold.
It really feels like a restaurant in a basic hotel.
The food is good but not exceptional and way too expensive for what it is.
The service is good. Very nice.
