2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. We wait a long, long time for food considering we are the only ones there (for at least the first 25 minutes) and we look super tired.
My friend orders the brie pierogies, which are over a soggy bed of sauerkraut and with cilantro sour cream. I order lamb schnitzel, which is a disaster. I took the food apart before I started and I had a cut over cooked, greasy lamb tendrils strewn across the plate. My mushroom ragu had 17 beans (they were so spread out you COULD count them) and two mushrooms. Mustard sauce was obscenely oversalted, which I mentioned at the end but the waiter did nothing about.

The only complaint that was remedied was my friend's meal. The woman almost never complains, but was obviously unhappy with her fluke fish special considering that it still had all of its bones for $28, or was mostly skin and no filet, and her risotto was crunchy. Waiter had the gall to say that risotto is supposed to be “al dente,” which it is except we all tried hers and it was not even remotely that cooked. Worst was that fish was sitting in an unstrained soup of poaching liquid with soggy veg.

We made a big deal about how the chef himself had no idea how the supplier brought them bone-in fish.
The meal was, on the whole, really disappointing.
I noticed the Zagat 2007 rating waxing poetic about the design aesthetic and only one line about the food. Same thing with Toronto Life, who has upgraded Czehoski to three stars this year.

Whatever.
Far later, I heard the chef, (Isberg, whatever) has the most filthy temper and whims. I could see that from the food!!

I do not recommend this place.

4 out of 5 people found this review helpful. I went there again a few weeks ago and it is almost always busy. The garden patio is a major selling feature of this restaurant, complete with mini waterfall.
The food is good, though the goatcheese and beet salad is almost offensive due to oversprinkling of the cheese. They do a lot of high end comfort food, and openly admit on the menu to selling one of the most expensive burgers around. The also offer an excellent mac and cheese, if that's you're thing.
The desserts are very good- particulary the vanilla creme brulee.
The wine list is extensive and excellent, with glass and bottle options available. There is also sparkling available by the glass, and extensive selection of hard liquor.
The service, however, is hit or miss. The first floor dining room staff are excellent, thought the tables are in such close proximity to each other, you may get hit on by someone else's date (yes I had this happen).
The second floor bar staff were downright surly, and though we had a table of over 8 people I had to go to the bar to get my drink. However, as the patio is on the 2nd floor, the patrons are much more relaxed- perhaps due to a seeming free flow of liquor? DJ Ash on Fridays was also very good, and the music did not drown out the conversation.
I would recommend this restaurant- but not to anyone who is broke or expecting large portions. Have the patience for the type of cuisine it is, and enjoy the local characters who frequent the place.

I do not recommend this place.
