Terrible dining experience. We had a table booked for Winterlicious and were quite excited about attending the Ocho Hotel for dining. Wed had a dinner reservation for two. Upon being seated, we were not given a wine list. Our order was taken and upon delivery of our appetizers, still no wine list. I finally asked after a table seated next to us (well after us) was given a wine list and ordered a glass of wine. The appetizers. I had the chicken terrine, it was okay - a bit over powered by the apricot jam they paired it with my. My friend ordered the risotto - it was under cooked (crunchy) and served in a small bowl on a paper doily. Our entrees arrived and sat in front of us while I awaited new cutlery. This took several minutes. The filet mignon was over cooked and looked liked a child butchered it. All accompaniments on my plate were either luke warm or cold. Everything was under seasoned. My wine finally arrived half way through eating our entrees. My friend ordered the fish dish, which was just as terrible with cold sides and a very small piece of fish. Our desserts for this meal were the highlights. I had the rhubarb creme brulee and my friend had the apple walnut pudding. The meal was terrible. What made it even worse was that every plate brought to us was slammed down on the table by the server. This was additionally the only time that we saw the server. I would have ideally sent our food back and left, but as mentioned, we couldn't get her attention. Nice minimal space but would avoid going back for a meal.
Restaurant: This was my first Winterlicious event and my friends and I were not very impressed. The atmosphere was nice, but the food portions were SO tiny, we almost considered getting more food after. Butternut squash risotto was good, but my eggplant parm was small and there was more salad on the side than actual eggplant. My friends got the Halibut which was tasty but tasted like it was cooked at home with a couple unseasoned dry potatoes. Drinks were average. Staff was nice.
Went here for 2 weddings on back to back weekends one with full dinner and one with cocktails and they were both amazing. Such a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Food was good and not the traditional wedding from a banquet hall.
This is a little gem. We didn't stay there, just went for lunch. As with boutique hotels, service was very personal and great. Food was excellent. A week later we were there for a wedding. Atmosphere was simply excellent. The kind that only a small cozy place can create. Will definitely go back for dinner. This changed my mind about small hotels. May be I'll start looking for small hotels when I travel from now on.
For the price, you can't beet this place for cool luxury in a historic setting in Toronto's garment district. Staff is helpful, but relaxed. Great rooms! (No coffeemaker, so ask about that is you care).
