I organized a brunch for friends who had not been here before, they loved it too. I ordered the banana crepes, sinfully delicious...and worth every bite!!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLunchEverything was great except the spinach and taro slaw- I guess when I ordered it and it said rice noodles I assumed they were cooked, however they were so hard I could not cut through them - very difficult to eat, pretty presentation but not sure why something like that would even be on the menu. Mushroom pizza was great. Service wonderful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends had not been thereMy friends had not been there since the reno they loved the new style, bar area, rooms separations new seating .

New menu is good too as they also have gluten free options.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy food choicesWe found the restaurant very noisy, which made it difficult to talk to each other since I have hearing difficulties. The chairs could use some padding for comfort. The food was very tasty, but my husband found the portion too small for the price of the meal. Desserts were wonderful. Recommend you try the pear, blueberry crumble. The waiter was very good with all his guest in spite of being very busy. He was very helpful, efficient, and friendly. The other servers and hostesses were very nice and efficient as well.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMlunchHad the trout special with leek aioli and asparagus. It was yummy. Fish was hot and deliciously moist.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerWe were seated immediately. The server took our orders and was served in a leisurely fashion not too fast and not too slow.

The Soup and Salad....we had the mulligatawny lobster soup, quinoa salad and herb bread and all were excellent. The restaurant is very classy and the service was really excellent. The cappuccinos with biscotti finished it off. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA dependable optionI have been to this restaurant twice in the past few months -- both positive experiences. The menu is varied and reasonably priced. Food and service have been good. Restaurant can be very loud depending on where you are seated. It is a good option for a North York get-together and parking is easy and free.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch LocationExcellent service on a very busy mothers day. Brunch choice was really good and all the dishes were tasty. Catered well for vegetarians too. The carrot cake rounded of our meal in delightful fashion. A wee bit pricey for what you get though.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service on a busy dayWe received prompt and efficient service on Mother's Day, while the restaurant was super busy. The food was good as always and the portions were just right. Our party left satisfied and happy!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for brunch!Good selection but not too much selection!

Make sure to reserve a spot via opentable. - duh.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mother's Day BrunchI took my mother to brunch at Oliver & Bonicini at Bayview Village on Mother's Day. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The service was flawless and very attentive. We both loved the belgium waffles and Mum also loved the gelato. You do serve wonderful coffee--strong and hot! Thank you for the wonderful time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food - Nice atmosphereThis neighbourhood restaurant located in Bayview Village Mall is a nice restaurant although a bit on the noisy side. The food is very good but the menu is a bit limited. The prices are average to high. 4 of us had brunch and it came to $105.00 which may be average for some but we found it a bit on the high side. Service was excellent even though it was very busy. We had reservations and were seated immediately. We will return for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Than EverOBCG Bayview is getting better with age and experience. The room was warm and welcoming and the food was the best it's ever been.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStill my fav special occasion spotTrying to beat the Sunday mayhem of Mother's Day brunch, I took my mother out to Oliver & Bonacini at Bayview Village Saturday night, a place we used to frequent quite often for special occasions. The service has always been amazing, and the food well worth the price. Since the restaurant has renovated, nothing has changed. The food is still excellent, and the service remains one of the best in the city. I started with the mushroom soup, a deliciously light yet flavourful appetizer. My main course was the O&B signature macaroni and cheese, which puts to shame all other mac and cheese entrees. Finally, I rounded things off with my favourite desert from any restaurant - carrot cake and sour cream ice cream. A great dining experience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood for all!Great service and good menues?atmosphere good and service great!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMmenuThe Mac & Cheese is to die for!!! The mushroom soup is a classic.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, but a "cold" ambienceI have been going to this restaurant for years and have experienced nothing but great food and excellent service. Recently the menu changed and it was for the best, because it's nice that the flavours keep evolving. I am however disappointed with the renos. The use of flourescent lighting in place of warm lights was not appealing at all. The exposed concrete floors and "cold" feeling didn't make me feel comfortable. The lighting makes the whole space look chilly and gloomy. It's a good thing I had good friends with me who distracted me from the esthetics and great chefs to please the stomach!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch with babiesRestaurant is spacious and can accommodate strollers . Food is delicious.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
