We attended TSO programs for a few years and visited Roy Thomson Hall a lot. Different Orchestras performed from all over the world, different conductors, piano and violin artists performed and we always satisfied with visit. Well organized. Neat place. Good service and very nice staff.

Love this venue. But it needs some love. The carpet is outdated. Smells funky. And the washroom are very unfriendly to those with special needs or mobility issues. Considering the majority of patrond are over 50 years of age it should be a priority for members and presidents to make a change.

Awesome concert hall, we had a great experience here! The concert was fantastic, and the usher in our section, Kristen, was very friendly, and great with the kids! The building is beautiful, even if it is confusing. We managed to get lost once, but another great usher (I think his name was Matt) pointed us in the right direction Overall, great staff and great concert.

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.
