Has anybody made reservation?!

I so far have bookings for dinner at Corner House and Pangaea.

I know the 'licious reputation of Pangaea - so I look forward to seeing how bad it really is :p

        For most restaurants, all you need to give them is the first 4 digits of any Amex card. Any friend with an Amex could help you out!

        PS I'm not going to do any 'licious ever again. Too many small meals with poor value, poor service and rushed atmosphere. That being said, my favourites in the past included Corner House, so you'll have fun, Tboy!

          3733 is all you need. I am also "off" winterlicious. I prefer the full meal deal.

            oh, i saw the menu at romagna mia and it looked wonderful. I have eaten there several times and always had a fantastic experience. I was actually quite excited about the winterlicious menu bc it is different than the regular menu. I was really disappointed to see that Toronto Life gave it 2 stars (1/2 star down from last year no less), and am beginning to wonder if my palate is really that off, because i thought there food was sooo delicious! p.s. i have brought people from italy there (very discerning palates) and they said it was wonderful, and as good as restaurants in italy.

                We went to the Beer Bistro for Winterlicious. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the food a lot. The service wasn't stellar but it was an overall good experience.

                We tried going to Olivia's at fifty-three. It would have been nice if they had our reservation. I called and left a message since they only open in the evening. They never called to confirm even though I had asked for a call back. When I called them, they couldn't find my rez. They said someone was going to call me back in 24 hrs (call was made on Tuesday). They didn't call me back until Friday, the night before we were supposed to go there, to tell me they didn't have anything available for that Saturday night. Gee...thanks for the last minute heads up!

                  Sorry things didn't work out for you at Olivia's. I went and it was lovely. However, I did have some issues with the reservation, too. I requested a table for 12 for Winterlicious and was offered January 25th. Sure, I'll take it! The next day, someone called me back after they realized that Winterlicious didn't start until the 26th... At least they called me to fix things, otherwise I would have had 11 rather irritated dining companions.

                  Had dinner at Tundra last Saturday and it was spectacular - would recommend making early reservations to have an entire dinner experience.
                  Also going to lunch at Auberge with the "girls" - always a wonderful lunch.
