Most Overrated Restaurant in Toronto

I wish to know which are the most pretentious and overrated restaurants in Toronto, so i may avoid them. Thank you for your input.

      I completely agree. The food is not good for the price. I had lukewarm soup, absurdly salty pasta, etc. The ambiance is nice and calming but the whole experience is not worth it. For a similarly priced lunch in Yorkville, I would look to Pangaea.

        They did a groupon some time back so obviously the level of appreciation for them is not overwhelming. (And I bought the Groupon and, yeah, just shows why I need to stop buying so many Groupons...)

        Though the skylight inside is very pretty.

        1. Here's a thread that lists restaurants that are meh for some Chowhounds:

          1. Local Kitchen was over-hyped for me by the time I got there. It was fine, but the plates were a bit precious.
