Trevor Kitchen and Bar, Toronto Reviews (2)
See my full review here: http://missleung87.wordpress.com
We made reservations for 6pm and were taken right away. The ambiance was nice and dim. I thought there could have been a bit more light as it was hard to read the menus.
The tables were also very close together, which was a bit awkward when you could completely overhear the next tables conversation.
Our server was friendly at first, but a bit slow. She also didn't seem very knowledgeable. The owner and executive chef, Trevor Wilkinson also came out to talk to the table next to us, but didn't even bother to ask us if we were enjoying our meal or anything like that, which I thought was rude.
For our appetizers we got the ahi tuna tartare ($15) and the soup of the day, which was butternut squash with beet mascarpone ($12?). Both were wonderful. I liked the soup better, and my boyfriend like the tuna better. Our server did not ask us how we were enjoying our appetizers.
After clearing our plates we got our entrees. I ordered savoury crumble crusted lamb shoulder with goat cheese mashed potatoes ($30) and my boyfriend ordered port braised beef cheeks with truffle and wild mushroom risotto ($23). Both were delicious. I liked the mashed potatoes more than the lamb, and my boyfriend enjoyed the risotto more than the beef cheeks, although they were very tender.
Our server did not ask us if we were enjoying our meal, and basically ignored us.
When we were ordering wine from the sub par and overpriced wine list, we asked the server if there were perhaps more red wines to choose from which were not on the menu. She replied rudely with "More than the six that are already on there?" When the wine was brought to the table it was fizzy, meaning it was either not decanted properly (hadn't been left to breathe) or was bad. After letting it sit we discovered it had not been decanted properly. It was, however, at the right temperature.
For dessert we shared a warm quince turnover with cinnamon ice cream ($8). I thought this was the second best thing we ordered, after my soup.
All in all, it was a pleasant meal. The service wasn't great, and the food wasn't amazing, but nothing was BAD.
As well, the bathrooms were a bit scuzzy looking, and didn't seem to match the restaurant.
