About the restaurant
We had the most amazing experience. Josh our server very friendly and knowledgable of the menu and history of Akira Back . We met Sous chef Kim and answered all of our questions about the menu. The attention to every detail with table maintenance was spot on and the food was well presented and simple. The food was delicious and fresh. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends. Thanks again for a memorable experience.

The 40 course blind tasting menu was phenomenal. Every dish was thoughtful, complex, and delicious. The drink pairings were spot on. Our server (Nick) was a perfect representative - kind, funny, and informative. Our server for the cocktail pairings was incredibly informative and friendly. The rest of the staff were attentive and not overbearing.

About the restaurant
The food did not disappoint in any way. We did the chefs choice five course meal and it was truly outstanding. The octopus tacos and the venison carpaccio were truly amazing. The service was equally outstanding. They were very attentive. I would go back in a heartbeat. Best meal of 2019 for us!

Awesome charcuterie and fondue. Great cocktails and wine selection. Be sure to reserve early as it is a very small, intimate bar. Servers are very friendly and knowledgeable about menu items.

Food was superb. Unfortunately my lobster pasta dish was served pretty close to room temperature and they hadn’t warmed the bowl it was served in. The wines are expensive but I ordered one of the least expensive from the south of France and it was good. We would return😊

Top notch service. Lovely fresh ingredients and fantastic presentation. Scaramouche has been one my fav restaurants in Toronto since the 80’s! Never falters, always perfection with coconut cream pie as the icing on the experience.

Excellent food, presentation and service. A bit loud for conversation. Prices too high esp for portion sizes which seem to be smaller than in the past.

We were at Yukashi before the pandemic in 2019 and had a great experience. We went back last Sat and the food was still amazingly good and service was excellent. We enjoyed the fun chat with Chef Izutsu on special food and sake in different regions in Japan. We plan to go back in Q2 to try their season adjusted menu. Thank you Chef Izutsu and your team for an enjoyable dinner!
