"It was a business lunch. A colleague came early and wanted to order early but the waiter did not understand. This created a situation where everyone came to the table and was forced to order right away which was awkward. Food was good but portions are small given the cost."

"In the very heart of chic Toronto, this hotel restaurant offers good food and a pleasant, quiet spot. Straightforward menu with something for every taste, mid-priced (not Subway but not Yorkville, either) and good service that pays attention to when you have to leave.
Tables are far enough apart you're not part of your neighbors' conversation.

"We ate here because it was convenient, since we were staying at the hotel. What a mistake. The food was tasty, but the service was horrible. First, we sat for close to 10 minutes before anyone stopped by to take our drink order. The drinks came relatively quickly, so we gave them a pass. Then we ordered appetizers and dinner. We enjoyed our drinks and then the food came, but it was our main course (lamb was delicious) not the appetizers. We asked what was going on and the waiter said he forgot to enter the appetizers. I guess having 3 tables was a bit too much - that was the entire customer base. He actually suggested bringing the appetizers after dinner! And what did we get for our troubles, nothing."

"We took a client to lunch there and we all really enjoyed our meals. There are quite a good number of interesting dishes on the menu, so kudos to the chef and the Marriott, for going above and beyond traditional hotel fare.
The only negative is that the decor is a little dated and needs a bit of an update. There are a lot of restaurants in this area and if it ware more of a destination, they would definitely increase their business.
They buffet was not in use and was empty so maybe it would be nice to have a screen in front of it as it spoils the ambience."

"The winterlicous lunch served on a Saturday was decent. The crab cake was a bit dry but the steak was ok. Dessert was passable. However, service was attentive."

"I went there on a Saturday lunch with a friend during Winterlicious. It's conveniently located although not accessible by the street if you have a wheelchair (there might be an elevator inside the mall but would need to confirm). It was surprisingly not very busy which was very enjoyable. The staff was very attentive, courteous and professional. I had the butternut squash soup, nothing fancy (bread was good tho!) for appetizer. Then the steak frites for main: as hate fries in gravy but I have to say that the meat was incredibly tender and the sauce was divine which made the whole dish exquisite. Desserts were too sweet for both of us, could not finish the creme brulee and the brownie was too dense. Overall, a good place for a quiet brunch/lunch!"

"I found the service at Matisse to be excellent- the wait staff make it your choice to have a slow leisurely lunch or a quick eat and go. The food was excellent and the quantity ample. Would strongly recommend a visit."

"Decided to try out Matisse for the first time. Food was okay, but they forgot the almonds on my baby kale salad. We received our food quite promptly. Steak was cooked just the way I had asked for, which was medium rare. Not sure if it was the cut of the steak, but I had a notably tougher steak than my friend. Even though it was cooked nicely there was some muscle that made it difficult to cut. Also there was bit too much char on my steak so at times I would taste bits of burnt bits. Also the restaurant was quite cold at the time, I noticed they had a heater, but it was still quite chilly. Lastly, once we finished dessert we were not asked if we would like any coffee or tea, we were just presented with the bill, which was kind of abrupt in my opinion. So overall the food was pretty good, service though prompt was not amazing and the restaurant was quite cold."

"First impressions make a lasting impact. We had to ask the hostess for a server after we arrived and were waiting. Regular lunch menus were provided even though Winterlicious is on. Both menus should have been provided. The server did not introduce himself. We had ordered Steak Frites and were not provided with steak knives. After struggling to cut the meat, we asked the hostess for steak knives, since our server was not around. We asked the server for refills of water and he replied, right away. Then he proceeded to attend to the table behind us and did not refill the water. We had to ask a second time. When dessert was served, he did not ask if we wanted tea or coffee. He did ask the table behind us. These are basic fundamentals of service that one should expect when at a restaurant."

"First restaurant to begin winterlicous and the waiter took 30 minutes to refill our water - with five tables only occupied. The onion soup was delicious but the main chicken and gnocchi could've passed for a Monday night dinner. We noticed the tables around us had complimentary bread which we never received so at the end we asked our server if it was standard to receive bread seeing we were the only one who did not receive any and his(server) response was "umm yes but it depends...I mean sometimes..why did I not bring you any? "
As we did not received same service as other tables -from our drinks being refilled once at the end of the meal, asking if they could bring out our main as soon as we received our appetizer and not receiving bread nor a simple how is your meal, it wIll be a first and last.

"Great place for a lunch with friends or business associates. Food and presentation was great and at this restaurant you could actually have a conversation as the noise level was reasonable even though very busy."
