I was walking downtown and stopped in for some quick breakfast. I was treated very well and the service was astounding. The general manager Kai was friendly as soon as I walked in and wished me a happy birthday when I mentioned I was celebrating. My waiter Thomas knew right away what I wanted and the food was delicious. If you're ever in the downtown core, check out One18 Empire!

I wanted to share the amazing way in which the ONE18 Empire team took care of my sister-in-law’s gathering last Saturday. My family are huge fans of ONE18, and so am I. The team was wonderful! Meredith was our server that night and took great care of us. She was excellent at offering different alternatives for some of the guests who required special dietary needs. The food was AMAZING, drinks FANTASTIC, service was OUTSTANDING, and the new dessert items BLEW US AWAY!

Recently we stopped into this restaurant expecting to have some lunch before attending an afternoon theatre presentation but only brunch menu for this Saturday afternoon. A pleasant surprise however as we enjoyed two dishes:1) chicken and waffles which were very good and filling with a savoury touch and maple syrup on the side and 2) Canadian breakfast with the usual bacon, eggs but also roasted tomatoes, a healthy wheat toast and a unique potato side served in its own basket: large cubes of crusty chunks which were delicious. Coffee served in a carafe and tea in a large tea pot that did not spill upon pouring and no need to ask for more hot water. Jams served in little jars. Good service and nice ambience. Would give 5 stars except it is a little pricey but worth it.

The attention to detail and the overall service was outstanding. The serving staff during the event were attentive to everyone's needs and went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great experience. Their charcuterie boards and other menu samples were amazing. Well sourced and good quality ingredients. You can tell that each member of the group takes pride in their work. Thank you to Kai and his team for being such great hosts! I will definitely be recommending their venue for future networking events! :)
