    • For $35 (dinner) and under, can you guys recommend any good restaurants? Any kind of food is fine as long as it's good and filling...haha!

      Spend the extra $10 per person and go somewhere nice for $45 per person. You'll get more than the $10 per person in ambience and food quality.

      I'm taking the GF to dinner at Auberge again this winter. I love that place.

      last licious event I went to was at Auberge I think? that was few years ago haven't gone to them since. I find the quality seems to go seriously downhill during these events and not worth the discounted price even. Much better to go during regular times when it's not like a mass produced product at chain restaurant.

      At most restaurants, I agree with you. But when I went for dinner at Auberge during last winterlicious, the dinner was spectacular and our waitress didn't rush us at all. We also had wine pairing with each item which was great.

      During summerlicious, we went with her family for lunch and I was less impressed. For lunch, it did seem like it was assembly line quality and our waiter was only mildly interested in providing good service.

    • I find that winterlicious is basically just free desert (which I almost never get at a restaurant anyway) in exchange for a limited menu

    • Got Canoe, Auberge, Jump, Toula, Pangea, La Fenice, Frank Restaurant @ AGO lined up. Booked for 4-6 people all in one day on Jan 8th, perks of having Amex.

      Most likely will not go to all of them, will cancel a few of those reservations. Nice to have choices though, maybe trade with one of you guys.

      Fun fact:

      Not all of those places cared to ask for my Amex number! Was surprised!

    • I also wonder why people bother with winterlicious. Restaurants limit your choices far too much and worse they treat you like crap.

      I've been to Fred's Not Here and Toula. Both places were delicious and I did not have any bad service with them. They do get tips you know, it's just food costs slightly cheaper than original bucks. I don't see why they'd treat us like crap :S

    • Just reserved with Fred's not Here... i got an confirmation email from Open Table... how do they know its Winterlicious and not a normal menu? Do i have to let them know as soon as i go there?

      went to Fred's Not Here for christmas dinner and it was horrible. Friends got the surf & turf and the lobster tail that it came with was mushy and tasted funny. Was probably dead and frozen to begin with but I assumed since we were paying around $40 for the dish, it'd at least TASTE fresh.
      also, their "famous" baked lobster soup tasted like canned soup. It was so spicy and salty that you couldn't taste any lobster/crab.

      our server was in a grumpy mood too. will NEVER go back. I noticed the manager was Chinese. Maybe it's chinese owned?

      *If you really have to go, get the seafood paella. huge portions.

      I don't respect that practice... You are taking up possible reservations from someone else. I hope that you will decide soon and cancel the ones you don't need.

      +1. Not cancelling unwanted reservations is a big problem for the restaurants participating in 'licious.

      Most restaurants will assume that you are going for the Winterlicious menu....however, definitely point this out to them ASAP when you arrive. I've gotten into the habit of telling them when I call for a reservation or put a comment note in Open Table if doing an online reservation.

      Agreed, I went there for summerlicious (dinner) 2 years ago and the food was subpar. They probably had a change of ownership or chefs as it used to be really good...and that was like 5 years ago.

      I've been hearing these kinds of negative comments about 'licious ever since I started going about 5 years ago. Have NEVER had any major issues that were 'licious related. I think this is a wonderful city initiative to promote the restaurant scene in Toronto. I've been to many of the restaurants during NON-'licious and have not experienced first hand any drop-off in service or quality...only the prices If the restaurant is crappy during 'licious, my experience is that it is simply crappy.

      I understand why you do that (multiple reservations) but its really really really irritating for the owner and staff. I hate this so much.

      My experience is the exact opposite of this.
