Michelle's Brasserie - January 7, 2007
8 out of 15 people found this review helpful. I've come here twice - once for an after-dinner cheese & wine, and once for dinner itself.

Both times the place has exuded class and also hospitality. The staff have been very attentive, and the food (from bread onwards to dessert) has been of the highest quality. One of the best places in Toronto.

I recommend this place.

Carlton Printers Limited - December 24, 2006
10 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Sort of odd recommending a copier service, but I had to do quite a few different jobs, and they did it well. Just for being helpful (something a lot of Toronto stores lack), 5/5.
I recommend this place.

Downtown Animal Hospital - October 23, 2006
18 out of 21 people found this review helpful. When we first got our puppy, and looked up vets near us (on iBegin of course), this was the first one we considered. Having lived nearby, we had walked by this place quite a few times.

The overall experience was satisfactory. The vet was very nice, and very patient and explained things great. She did try selling us pet insurance, but wasn't too pushy about it.

The support staff are friendly but overworked. Every time I go there they are always busy with phone calls, other people, or what not. It is a successful business - that is good, but hire some more people to help out. Been there about 5-6 times, and always the same - very rushed.

As we had a puppy, we did give stool to test. We were told that unless there is something wrong, we won't get a phonecall. Unfortunately we did - he had some worms. We did give the medication as required, and after giving his stool, did not hear back. In retrospect (and reading Mick's review) perhaps we should have called just to make sure.

The one problem was when we were driving through the US (and taking our puppy), we called to ask if we could get the necessary paperwork. The woman I talked to was completely confused, and would not get a hold of someone who would. Instead of arguing with her, I just waited and called back an hour later. That time the guy who picked up knew what was going on, and was very helpful.

So - the vets are nice, and they do seem to genuinely care about pets. Just beware of how everything feels very hectic.

I recommend this place.

200 Elm Street - October 18, 2006
11 out of 22 people found this review helpful. This place is somewhere between average and dingy.

I lived here while going to university with a roommate. The elevator was slow as molasses, and often down. Every time I was trying to go down, the elevator would first stop at the floor above, and then come to my floor. Made no sense.

The place is not really clean, and it has no facilities (other than laundry in the basement).

I do not recommend this place.

Captain John's - October 18, 2006
10 out of 17 people found this review helpful. Alas - I am not a tourist, but I fell into this one.

Hanging around, thought it would be a nice little quaint place. Not the best, not the cheapest, but an interesting experience.

Instead - all horrible. The place was almost empty, and our host was annoyed we didn't have a reservation. He then proceeded to take seat us at the worst table. The service was slow, impolite, and downright condescending.

The food? Also tasteless.

Absolute rip-off, do not ever visit this place.

I do not recommend this place.
