360° Restaurant @ CN Tower

On a rainy day, I had the chance to eat at 360 Restaurant on top of CN tower. Our view was obscured by clouds for the majority of our meal, which really sucked. Anyway, onto the food now...
CHILLED LEEK AND POTATO SOUP
Smoked salmon and celery root salad, chive oil
SMOKED ATLANTIC SALMON AND SPINACH QUICHE: Gruyere cheese and fresh dill
Sweet potato fries, butter leaf salad, cucumber vinaigrette. The quiche was alright, nothing extraordinary. The sweet potato fries were delicious, as most sweet potato fries are. I enjoyed this dish overall, but it was entirely overpriced!
MERLOT BRAISED CANADIAN AAA BEEF SHORT RIBS: Sweet potato horseradish mash, lemon gremolata. I think this was my favourite out of all the dishes that I sampled. Perhaps this is due to my love for short ribs
GRILLED CANADIAN AAA STRIPLOIN STEAK AND ONION RINGS: Buttermilk mashed potatoes, French beans, natural jus 10o. I didn't try this dish, but those onion rings don't look that appetizing to me...
PAN SEARED FILLET OF ATLANTIC SALMON,
Toasted almond and ginger vinaigrette, steamed baby bok choy, shiitake scented brown rice. I also did not sample this dish, but the portion was rather small for the price.
ORANGE RISOTTO WITH COINTREAU CRÈME FRAÎCHE: Passion fruit, dark chocolate, pistachios. This was awfully weird... I don't know how to describe it. The passion fruit was really sour. Although the risotto had an interesting texture, it wasn't really enough to save this dessert.
The cookie and ice cream dessert from the kid's menu. Well, you can't really go wrong with a cookie and ice cream, so I enjoyed this a lot. Especially since everything else was rather mediocre.

  1. You definitely pay a lot for the view. I've been here before... I liked the food, but it wasn't incredible considering how much you pay.

    Have a great day!

  2. Much better restaurants in Toronto.
    Food seems to be hit or miss.... for me it was big miss.
    Pricing is very high.

    1. I completely agree with you. You really only pay for the view.
