    Caveat: last experience several years ago.

    An amalgam of an almost comical 1950's Canadian Chinese buffet (it was not intended to be ironically retro) and an impressive sounding fine dining menu plus some Ashkenizic and Sephardic clich├ęs.

    The Chinese was okay for what it was, but why bother?

    The fine dining menu read appetizingly but consisted of good ingredients carelessly seasoned and poorly cooked.

    You might be happier with Bistro Marron on Eglinton.

        Miami Grill food is pretty good, but the service and ambiance leave a lot to be desired. Not cheap....but good sized servings.

          Miami Grill is an informal place with decent (though not particularly special) food.

        I also haven't been in years, but from what I remember it was simply average. If you're looking for a fine dining kosher restaurant, why don't you go to Bistro Grande or 398 West.

          Sorry to inform you, but 398 West is no longer in business.

            I wasn't aware that 398 West had closed. What a shame, as it was the only truly upscale kosher restaurant in the city.

              You should try Marron (948 Eglinton W).

                I haven't been myself, but I've heard really good things about Marron.

                  I would not waste your time with D-lites. The food is really sub-par.

            Another good place you might want to try is called Delicacies on Center just East of Dufferin in Thornhill.
