Rated 4.6 out of 5

4 Star Rating A great location with decent sightlines throughout the seating. The sound is intense and seating is very comfortable. My one problem was the small size of the washroom which was busy for entire intermission.

5 Star Rating Great place to see the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and other world class performers. Every seat has a great view although I prefer to sit further in the back of the theater so I can view everyone on stage. Nice staff.

4 Star Rating A fantastic building, beautiful inside and out. Pro tip: get there at least half an hour early and have some beer or wine and chat while you wait for the show. Unfortunately the acoustics are not the best, but you'll see a great show anyway.

4 Star Rating We were there for the Toronto Sweets Festival outside on the grounds. So many yummy treats being sold and sampled. I have been in the building for concerts in the past and it is lovely with amazing acoustics and actually fairly comfortable seats and I love the modern architecture of the building design. It really is one of Toronto's jewels.
