Czehoski Restaurant - July 18, 2007
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.
