Rated 4.5 out of 5

5 Star Rating A real world class, contemporary symphony hall. Comfortable seating and great views everywhere. Decent selection of events all year round.

4 Star Rating A long time Toronto staple and venue for the (TSO) Toronto Symphony Orchestra. The venue is fairly modern and well maintained. The acoustics have often been derided, but this is only discernible to the elite ear. The venue is very comfortable all around, the staff are always helpful. Liquor service at intermission is reasonable priced and varied. If you are going to a TSO, be prepared for lots of coughing, hacking, jingly jeweller, unwrapping of foil candy/lozenge packets and the like... I think this though is a phenomenon of the audience rather than the venue.

5 Star Rating Very beautiful venue, iconic and unique in design. Is a beautiful environment to enjoy all sorts of chic events. The endless glass structure opens the space up to the outdoors, essential in the harsh winter climate. Also, a convenient and affordable place to park underground.

5 Star Rating I had knee surgery a few days prior to a comedy show on December 9, 2016 (Joe Rogan with Russel Peters and Big Jay Oakerson). I contacted the manager of Massey Hall (Cal) and he was very accommodating. He put in an alternative seat which allowed me to have my left knee fully extended. Thank you so much Cal! Your staff were also very helpful!
