The Toula restaurant on the 38th floor of the Westin Hotel in Toronto affords beautiful vies of Lake Ontario, and Toronto.
The menu is short, offering regular fare. Recently, I had an opportunity to eat lunch there.
At 12 o’clock the restaurant was empty, except for two guests, which should have served as clue about the reputation of the establishment.
I ordered smoked salmon, steak (medium-rare). The smoked salmon arrived ($ 19.00) with a slice of un-pitted lemon. Instead of a wedge that should have been pitted and wrapped in cheesecloth. At this price one expects at least a presentation to justify the high price.
The steak ($ 38.00) was full of gristle, improperly cooked and chewy. At this price I expect at least a good, if not superior, quality of meat that is perfectly cooked according to order.
The service was amateurish at best, as servers forgot to brink a napkin, and served in a very unprofessional manner.
The wine glasses of this restaurant are totally inappropriate for wine.
Overall, I cannot and will not recommend visiting this establishment.
