Take in legendary views at Watermark Restaurant and Lounge in Toronto
At the Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown, we take hospitality seriously—that’s why Watermark Restaurant and Lounge, our signature restaurant, uses only the best local ingredients to put creative twists on classic Canadian dishes. We obsess about the details that make your visit truly memorable, and we proudly offer one of downtown’s best lounges with walls of glass that provide stunning views of the Harbourfront. If you’d rather catch the big game, sidle up in front of the flat-screen TVs and enjoy your pick of ice-cold beers, flavourful wines, and inventive cocktails.
I went with my partner to visit Niagara Falls and Toronto for our 3 year anniversary. We received a 15% discount for a meal at the Watermark based on being a member at the Raddison Hotel so it seemed like a great first night dinner.
The restaurant was almost completely empty except for one other customer but was lit up like it was ready for a holiday party. There was beautiful baby grand in the middle of the room and a bar off to the right after entering. A nice man greeted us and gestured to a 2 seated table near the fire place and couches, on the opposite side of the bar. Seeing all this, I definitely felt underdressed in my t-shirt and sweatpants.
The man, who greeted us at the door, sat us down, gave us waters, and some menus. The food selection is definitely small but the food we had had big flavors. The man stepped away and another man showed up, introducing himself as Scott, our waiter. He was very pleasant and accommodating from the get-go. He promptly took our orders when we were ready, quickly handed out fresh bread and butter, and refilled our glasses quickly when we got low. He even left a pitcher of water nearby if he wasn't available.
My partner and I both ordered off the grill menu selection, she the steak and I the salmon. Both were cooked to our specifications and neither was over or under done. The veggies and quinoa were a nice compliment to the meats as well as a delicious dipping sauce that paired well. Scott was nice enough to give us some of the hollandaise type of sauce that they have to try as well. That was definitely my favourite.
In the middle of our meal, a fire alarm went off but Scott and the staff handled everything very professionally. He reassured us that instructions over the speakers would be given and we did not need to worry. The alarm was eventually taken care of after about 10-15 minutes. Scott apologized and gave us a dessert for free. We ordered the Nutella Donuts which didn't necessarily seem that hard to make but the presentation for all it was amazingly done like you'd see at a 5 star hotel.
All and all, this was definitely the best salmon I ever had and the best meal of the day, if not the whole trip. Scott was a fantastic waiter, very personable and professional and worth every penny we spent. View more
