I tried Trevor Kitchen last night after reading about it here and some local Toronto reviews. I loved it. I took clients there from out of town and they were so impressed.
Our table was ready when we arrived and they took our coats promptly. We sat near the bar area so it was somewhat noisy. This was ok for our group (and maybe that poster needing a loud place should go here) The vibe was great though. You could tell we were in a hot spot which clients impressed with. The dining room on the other side seemed quieter if that is a preference.
We asked to order off the bar menu for appetizers since I read so much about it. I ordered tempura shrimp which was SO delicious. Shrimp done perfectly, the batter was light and had a distinct taste to it and the aioli was a nice addition. Not only that but it was 5 large plump shrimp. I had the horseradish crusted beef with a side of frites. The beef had to be one of the best steaks I have experienced in Toronto and this even with going to steakhouses. Perfect size, perfectly done, not grizzly at all and the crust...to die for. Frites were also delicious.
For dessert we shared the espresso cake with burnt marshmellow sauce. Also devine although I found the cake too rich for my tastes so only had a nimble. The others ate it all up though.
My clients had the surf/turf speacial, and the other the mixed green salad and risotto for main - both raved about their food and cleaned their plates.
Next time I want to try the infamous asiago mac & cheese.
All said for three of us with 2 glasses of wine, 2 bottles sparkling, 2 apps., 3 mains, 1 dessert, 3 regular coffees total was $179. We thought this was very good for a wonderful meal.
Service was good too. One moot point was attentive server until after dessert when we couldn't seem to get the bill. A good thing if you like to linger and not be rush.
Will definitely return soon.
