TRUMP Toronto Brunch (at Stock)

Has anyone done brunch at Stock? Cant seem to find many reviews online
Is it like Vegas? - high volume, OK food

  1. Great service. Ok food. And certainly not as busy as Vegas.

    1. Food was just okay. Deserts pretty good. Service excellent.
      Nice room and vibe. Extremely high mark ups on alcohol.

      Oyster bar - something was off for me there. Couldn't put my finger on it but I was told by someone that they shuck them ahead of time and this could be the reason. I think the texture was affected.

      All in all, I wouldn't go back. Four of us, bill came to close to $500. Not worth it.

        omg... $500 for 4 people?? I hope that included a AYCD mimosa bar. I think Toca is about the same price and includes mimosa and bellinis (I think) in addition to crab legs and such.

          Isn't the buffet $50 a head. What were you drinking?

            I kid you not and that's what I said when I saw the bill - OMG!!
            More than half the cost was the alcohol and we had 3 mimosas and 2 glasses of wine which we failed to notice was $29 a glass.

            Oh, and 2 bottles of water that we somehow didn't expect to be charged for - I know, dumb but what can I say. We weren't paying attention to the fine print or something like that.

            Tax, etc and there you have it.

              Holy cow... that's insane. It's not like you asked for a bottle of ice wine or something. It's just a glass of mimosa and wine!

              When you're charging $30 per drink, it almost feels underhanded to charge for the bottle water. I know restaurants are in the business to make money but that just feels... 'trumpish' and greasy.

              I always wondered how the high end brunch buffet was at Stock... now I know.

                I know. Trust me, I was pissed. But the worst part, was the food just wasn't all that good either.

                You can do much better elsewhere.

                I had a glass of Moet at the Ritz for $32. $29 for a glass of wine at brunch is INSANE!

                  In case anyone is interested, it was Cakebread, which I know isn't cheap, but even so, it seemed OTT.

                  1. re: millygirl

                    Good taste in wines mg!

                    I paid $18 for a glass of Cakebread Chardonnay in Orlando last year...

                    But it was happy hour so I got 2 for 1!

                    1. re: kwfoodiewannabe

                      $18 ok, but $29? Painful. Looking at prices online it looks to be about $25 a bottle. Amazing.

            2. re: millygirl

              $500.00 for brunch!?!? I hope the Donald served you personally..
