I will be going to Toronto soon and intend to book a table in advance one evening in the restaurant.
Has anybody been?
More importantly what is the dress code?
Dress code, I guess no shorts. Personally I find it noisy and hectic like a dim-sum restaurant, with all the tourists yelling at each other for their conversation, but at 5* prices. Lunch time is much better with ambiance matching the price. The main attraction for the restaurant is the view (but only the north side at night) and free admission to the tower, IMHO.
P.S. I guess if you have a not-too-late dinner, while it's still bright when you arrive, then you get all the possible views. The south side is the lake, and pitch black at night.

We went there last Sunday night and had a 8.30pm booking but would suggest 8.00 so you can see most of the city in the light then watch the sun go down. takes 72 mins to do a full revolution.
The food is average to be fair and don't allow yourself to be rushed. We chose the 4 course fixed prie menu - there is flexability on there, we chose a different desert.
I would say it is something thats worth doing, I hate heights and was not even sure i would be able to sit down let alone eat a meal but i enjoyed it - just didn't look out going up and down in lift!
Forgot to say, its supposed to be smart casual, but there were some people in shorts and flip flops which i thought was a real shame as it lowered the standard a bit - sorry im not a snob but we took time to dress us a bit as many did - just a few let it down.
thosewere the main things... 5* prices with 5* view, but 3* food and ambiance.
Thanks guys - most helpful. I will definitely be going.
