Worst lunch experience at c5
Booked for Holiday lunch. Made order and 1 1/4 hours later still had received any of the meal. It was obvious the kitchen was short-staffed (open kitchen concept). No one approached our table to offer an explanation or apology for the delay. We didn't receive any bread or other hors d'oeuvres while we were waiting. After an hour, the waiter offered a complimentary cranberry drink. When we asked, were told the meal would arrive in 4 minutes. Another 15 minutes later, it was clear that they had not even gotten to our order. People across the room who had arrived previously had also NOT BEEN SERVED.
We left. We complained but never did receive even an apology. Obviously will not be returning or recommending this restaurant.

If there were issues, I missed them. The event was great all around. Your team found us a DVD player at the last minute and I am confident that the need for that was not passed on to you by our office.

Everything was great so thank you very much to you and your team. The attendees were very pleased as it was another great luncheon and hope we do it again next year. …

Slow and confused Service - needs improvement
Suggest that the person who takes the order actually delivers the order to the table. We had a different person and thus he had no idea who ordered what and got everyone's meals mixed up. Later another waiter delivered a dessert to our table asking who had ordered it. We had not ordered any desserts.
There was a very long wait for any food to arrive at the table.
Food was good but not great. The Staff are pleasant but the confusion was irritating and unexpected.

ENGAGEMENT COCKTAIL PARTY - EVENTS AT C5
"...the evening was fabulous the food and service was fantastic. It was a picture perfect event - we had to put the lights on to get people to leave, Maureen and Lenore did a great job. I would recommend the venue to anyone who asks - I was very happy."

The Toronto Star

By Corey Mintz Columnist
Yes, the current global recession has swept through Toronto’s restaurant scene like a brushfire. Food empires have crashed. Chef’s fortunes have crumbled. Some culinary temples of grandeur, such as Splendido, have downsized, scaling back the glitz. Others, like Truffles, have been laid to rest. Even Susur Lee, poster boy for kitchen pageantry, has started serving lunch at his restaurant Lee. He’s even put a hamburger on the menu, the culinary white flag.

But for those with anniversaries to celebrate or CEO titles to validate, there is still luxury to be had in some corners of Toronto’s dining scene.

On the fifth floor of the ROM, C5 Restaurant Lounge juggles the interests of high-rollers with casual museum guests. The view from C5 is a primary part of the lavish dining experience.

There is a kids menu with fish & chips and mac & cheese. But there is also lobster carbonara with tobiko. Asked by the museum to create an egg dish to tie in with May’s dinosaur egg exhibit, chef de cuisine Luigi Encarnacion took the tradition of pasta with egg yolks and bacon to another level. To the house-made tagliatelle and boar bacon, he’s added lobster and tobiko (flying fish roe), finishing the plate with a garnish of egg yolk that’s
been cured with black truffle.
