Cactus Club at Bentall 5

September 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Bentall 5 is a jazzed up Cactus Club, which is now obviously going for a more loungy “hip” (for lack of a better word) look and audience. There are still line-ups to get in although to be fair, they have a pager system which you can take to the bar and enjoy drinks as well as food while you wait. The place reminded us of one of the innumerable places in the Toronto Financial District filled with bankers and gussied up women but less hip and the food wasn’t as good.

We asked the waitress (she obviously got asked this question a lot) for Rob Feenie’s dishes which included the butternut squash ravioli, tuna tataki, duck clubhouse sandwich, beef dip and the rocket salad. He also apparently re-tooled the burger.  We tried the butternut squash ravioli which was good but nothing special. The calamari was actually very good – crispy and a generous helping.  Overall, the food was above average and tasty although on the pricey side – for a chain.
