Diner Reviews
  • "Love this place. Everything was delicious; good service; great location; cute atmosphere; all local/organic high quality foods :) Amongst our table we had the yucca fries, tofu scramble (with delicious herb potatoes and fruit salad on the side), Brie-L-T, and the carne (with an equally great vegetable side dish). Everything was amazing! We will return soon!"

  • "Chipotle eggs Benedict is the best brunch item on the menu. Side of bacon is incredible. The chicken and waffles is a large portion and the chicken is small drumsticks (bone in)."

  • "Had lunch and everything was amazing! Servers were attentive, friendly and helpful with menu. Started with refreshing cucumber and/or lavender infused waters. I ordered the Spinach salad and it was probably the best salad I've ever had! My sister, who is an Ahi Tuna critic, said it was the best tuna she's ever had, perfection! My daughter had black bean soup and the Pear Salad and loved them. The food and service were all great right down to the French press coffee and OMG you have to get the Yuca Fries! One order feeds the whole table! Even the restrooms were so clean that they smelled nice. Loved this place and will definitely return. Hint - Indoor seating is very limited - do make a reservation."

  • "We ate at Fresh for the first time for dinner on 3/26/2014. We enjoyed our friendly and informative waiter Meghan and the delightful array of interesting menu items. The grilled peach and mozzarella salad with mint was both unusual and quiet tasty ... and the tuna appetizer was deliscious ... both could've been meals as they were generous portions. The shirmp risotto was a bit heavy on the curry but the crunchy, nutty rice was a good balance. The pork chop was enormous, and the mashed caluiflower replaced the sweet potatoes offered since the chef wasn't pleased with the quality of the sweet potatoes. Good call - the cauliflower was yummy. Great service, delicious and inventive food, nice atmosphere. We will definitely be back."

  • "It's definitely, fresh. I had the spinach salad with an add-on of fresh grilled fish. The salad included the perfect blend of blue cheese and pancetta and a light Italian-inspired dressing that did not overwhelm or drip from the spinach leaves. The fish was seasoned and cooked expertly. For an appetizer, I had the yucca fries, which were seasoned in a way that made them irresistible. Lastly, I enjoyed the table water which included infusions of cucumber and mint. Nice touch! I visited for a late lunch and was glad I did . The place was not very busy, but it is small and the decor appears sparse. However, fresh concentrates on what it does best: fresh, locally sourced dishes that delight your taste buds."

  • "I had brunch with a friend at fresh last weekend. I easily made a res the day before and the table was held despite me being 5-10 min late. I ended up borrowing another tables menus since we weren't provided them initially. The food was good, though my sandwich came out with brie instead of the cheese listed on the menu. The table next to me had to flag down a waitress to order and then was unhappy with the chicken selection in the chicken with waffles (wings instead of legs or a mix). I would still recommend it but know you have to be active in tracking down the staff."

  • "First rate in every respect. Party of 5. All reported great satisfaction with appetizers and main courses. Restaurant is simply done but nonetheless welcoming and comfortable. Servers are pros and contribute positively to the experience."

  • "Dined at Fresh for the first time on one our typical double date nights with my sister and brother in law. The food and service at this small restaurant is one you just have to experience. The pork chop and filet was so delicious and I had Brussels sprouts for the first time and left nothing on the plate. Highly recommend that you try Fresh and if you are on the fence .... Just go! You won't be disappointed."

  • "Presentation was excellent and the food was delicious. Coffee was excellent and the bacon was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. I had the Frittata which was cooked to perfection and my friend had the Creme Brulee French Toast which she said was absolutely the best french toast she's ever had. It's a very small restaurant with limited seating making it a perfect place to dine and have a conversation."

  • "Had an outstanding meal and enjoyed our evening. Food was inspired and - dare I say FRESH - Nice wine list, great ambiance albeit mostly because of one table of women who were noisy. That said, it was a minor distraction - all in this is a great restaurant with attentive staff. We will be back for Valentines Day!!"

  • "Best chorizo and bacon in town! Small menu to match the small restaurant, but what comes out of the kitchen is very well executed. The noise level is very loud when there's more than 8 people in the room, but it is a very tiny establishment. I've had the same server several times...Unfortunately, I don't recall his name...tall fellow, but very knowledgeable about the menu, a friendly smiling face, and very accomodating."

  • "I think I made a bad decision choosing a pasta dish but for $21 I expected to see many, many more shrimp. The dish was described as spicy, which it was but was overpowering. My daughter and I shared this dish and we did not finish it. Restaurant was charming, service was good but with food issues we will probably not return."

  • "My wife has a gluten intolerance and they spent extra time discussing options/alternatives with her and were extremely flexible. The dishes they prepared were outstanding and that is rare when we have to use her dietary restrictions. This is a small, intimate place...but definitely worth the find. We were recommended by locals in Winter Park, and they were spot on."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "This is a great little neighborhood find, off the beaten path. Small, intimate but very hip. Great wines by the glass. The Thai Curried Mussels were the bomb. The entire staff from server to kitchen were fun and engaging. Make a reservation because table space is limited!"

  • "Wonderful restaurant, pleasant staff, imaginative menu which changes often. I have gone here 4-5 times in last few months always excellent. This is a seating challenged restaurant, so when making reservations make sure to request a table. They outside seating and small bar seating."

  • "It's seems cheesy to say but all night we just kept saying over and over this is just so fresh! Everything was delicious. I felt like we were sitting in a friends home while they cooked for us. It was clear everything was really made in house and with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere was quiet and intimate. You could easily have a conversation and not have to shout across the table. The staff was all friendly and helpful but also gave us time and space to decide at our leisure. I will gladly return to fresh and will recommend it to others."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "This little restaurant is a great find! absolutely make reservations as there is probably a total of 6 tables of 4 available, but on a wednesday night it was a perfect evening! The menu was interesting and decision making was difficult. As the menu changes all the time, you know you are getting a fresh meal. All food comes from within 150 mile radius of the restaurant. I had the lamb ragu pasta and it was delish. Wine list was big enough to have choices but small enough not to be overwhelmed. The choice of cucumber mint or lavender water was a refreshing treat and the staff was great. We will be back for sure!!"

  • "We love coming here for brunch until our last visit. Now I must say the service has never been that great. The servers always treat you like that are doing you a favor to bring you a glass of water. But the service her is always been out shined by the food. That was not the case in our last visit. The sauce on the Eggs Benedict was so bad it had separated in to a to piles on the plate. Gross!!! My salad came on such a hot plate that the leafs had wilted and I never received my coffee that i asked for 3 times and I even got up and went to the bar to remind them. The owner and chef must have been out of town."

  • "-Small dining room and bar but food and service make up for it. -Menu is specialized and not too ambitious (i.e. not too big). -I recommend putting a nice fish on the menu -Enjoyed the late night dinner and outside tables (only 2 or 3) looked very nice in the cool late-October fall evening. -Great apps!"

  • "Three out of four diners at our table loved the food and drinks. Flavored water was a fabulous touch. Prices were reasonable for the menu and part of town. The only thing that was missing were umbrellas for outdoor dining. There wasn't enough seating for us to sit inside and no shade during brunch outside."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "The food and service were absolutely amazing. From the call confirming the reservation to the desert, the service was top notch. Dishes were different than you would normally consider. We had peach salad, which had fresh mozzarella, a thick grilled peach slice, balsamic glaze, prosciutto and mint. I did have to send my tuna back twice to have it cooked well. The chef had a hard time believing I really wanted it well. Only complaint we had the entire evening. We had a lemon cheesecake with BlackBerry cobbler on it. That was so good, we order a second piece! Shawn, our server, was very fabulous, gave us great suggestions and just overall fun!"

  • "We went for small plates this time, which worked out deliciously. Brussel sprouts with bacon and apple really started us off right. Mussels were well garlic-ed and tomato-ed."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "There are no sound buffers so by the end of the night I had a raging headache from all the very loud conversations around. The tuna was extremely salty and the paella was nothing more that a Goya box rice with shrimp."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Fresh says most of the ingredients are organic but the chicken is cage free which means not organic. I had a chicken sandwich for brunch and there was so much bread in it. They have their own ketchup but doesn't resemble ketchup. Service was OK but it could have been better as 5 servers were just talking among themselves the whole time and they were loud too. I wouldn't recommend it."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "The menu offered interesting and enticing options. Would have liked more vegetarian fare. Although the space is small we had ample room and could carry a conversation comfortably. The blend of industrial and rustic decor created an environment that is at once comfortable and current. Very nice wine list. Exceptional service."

  • "First off, the server gave me tastes of wines, very nice. Unfortunately, my husband is a beer drinker, no love here, only three on the menu and two weren't available. Our salads were wonderful. I had the steak, absolutely fantastic-it will change the minds of those not fans of grass fed beef! He had the seafood bouillabaisse, not much seafood, one shrimp, one mussel, one scallop and a little fish, but the broth was very tasty. The bread was stale unfortunately, we had expected fresh bread. Great homemade herb butter. The reason I gave such a great review was that the food, the idea, the whole concept has so much potential, that we want it to succeed, if that makes sense. I look forward to going again!"
