Alize Toronto Midtown

The brunch menu sounded atttractive but... unfriendly reception, slow service ... Brunch price outreageous. Never again.

  1. That's too bad, but I had a completely different experience there a couple months ago. It was for dinner, not brunch. I was with a new friend in the area and we couldn't decide where to go. We ended up there by default. We had a lovely meal. Very nice, attentive service. Competent (not over-the-top, but that's not what they are selling), food (I believe we had a tortellini in cheese sauce and a nice salad). We enjoyed the neighbourhood restaurant feel. Not a destination place, but if I lived in the area, I could see myself stopping every now and then for a casual meal.

      1. I was completely underwhelmed there at brunch once too. The service was ok, but the brunch was way too expensive, portions were too small and the taste was nothing special. I left hungry and unhappy.

        They might be better for dinner, but I won't go there for brunch.

          Fully agree with you: even service was
          nbot friendky. There is lot of competition in the area and they might want to see what's going in in the district.

            1. That's really too bad becasue I had a very good experience when I had Brunch there last Sunday (November 18). I was with a large party and found the service very attentive, the food very good & freshly prepared, nice decor but did find it a bit loud and noisy as the place was full.
