Rated 4.6 out of 5Roy Thomson Hall Star Rating

4 Star Rating Not really a bad seat in the house and the sound is wonderful. Seats are comfortable and there is sufficient leg room unlike some Toronto theatres that I could mention. Not exactly an accessibility king though. if you have issues with stairs think carefully about where you are going to sit because I had to go up and down multiple short sets of stairs to get to the box I was in.

5 Star Rating Beautiful concern hall with excellent performance. However one thing worth noting is that it has very limited washroom availability. Usually during intermission the line up can go up and down and around the stairways and extend into the main hall area... Could be quite a wait.

5 Star Rating Lovely venue! The orchestra is great, and there's not a bad seat in the house. Although we were shocked that someone would just throw their trash (candy wrapper, red wine cup) on the lovely hardwood floor... Row E, seat 25, I'm talking about you!!

5 Star Rating I love this concert hall. The architecture is stark and beautiful - it is a perfect example of the stylistic architectural use of concrete and glass in a way that is both warm and welcoming. The acoustics in the hall are excellent. I've attended both concerts (most recently a concert of John Williams music performed by the TSO) and lectures (National Geographic speakers series) here, and I look forward to my next visit.

3 Star Rating A classic venue. Also a classic place to be crammed into a very small seat with your knees up to your chest. Lots of obstructed seating to occupy while you are soaking up the historic magnificence of the place. Oh well, the neon sign is pretty cool, and it is an icon. What else can you say?
