Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill, Yonge & Front
Food was excellent but coffeeFood was excellent but coffee expensive and bitter.10/4/2013 12:00:00 AMa lot of great elements……firsta lot of great elements……first time this location…….oakville was better. great service and ambiance8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMQuestionable ServiceAfter begin seated, our waiter shouted to us from behind the bar. When he came over with the coffees we ordered, he brought cream instead of milk, despite having repeatedly confirmed milk. He apologized and replaced it. He offered his favourite dishes as recommendations, failing to mention the chef's special until we asked. When he described it, he failed to mention that it was an omelette. I ordered it anyway and was happily surprised by the omelette that arrived. My friend had the hash, which was also good but a much heavier meal.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe services are excellentThe services are excellent and good selection of food. The meals are excellent. We had dinner party for my daughter's convocation and all the guests are very pleased with the food and services. I definitely will recommend this restaurant to everyone.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and so easyI love it here because the menu is huge and isn't missing any staples you want. The quality is great too.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent - ourService was excellent - our server was friendly, but not over-bearing.
Asked for a special accommodation and it was met.
Would recommend adding whole wheat options to the pizzas.
Excellent service!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Sunday RoastI brought my parents to Oliver & Bonacini Cafe Grill for my mum's birthday on June 9th. We all have a very enjoyable, relaxing evening as we celebrated. Service was notably good and the food was outstanding; we each had the Sunday Roast, which was perfectly cooked and tender. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I'm sure we'll be returning in the future.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was impressive.....My husband and I and our grown sons had a birthday celebration dinner at O&B, and we were pleasantly surprised at the expertise with which the food was prepared. The wine list is fine - nothing special, but met our needs for a dinner that didn't break the bank. Every morsel of food was finished - most notable were the caesar salads and beef short ribs - oh, and the bread basket had lovely warm, chewy sour dough type bread. Desserts were average, but made in-house, we think. I would definitely recommend getting a booth so you can hear, and enjoy the liveliness around you. We will return because it is very dependable food and a great location.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBefore TheatreHostess did a very good job of seating us, 4 with an average age of 75, in a relatively quiet booth, and we appreciated it. We could hear each other, and the cacophony of most restos was dimmed. Food was as expected, and we will return regularly before the theatre. The wait staff was excellent.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother amazing experienceDining at O&B is always a pleasant experience for all in our dinner party. Excellent food presentation with very well priced menu items including wine list. Overall a success in my book as always. Thanks to the staff for being very attentive and kind.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful find on Open TableConvenient location although they probably could do a better job in mentioning that they validate parking in the building. As we paid $5 night parking across on The Esplanade when the restaurant validation for parking on Scott St was only $2. Other than that , everything was lovely.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious lunchMy clients and I enjoyed our lunch choices. The food was fresh and tasty. The menu had a good variety of food options. Service was excellent. Would definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place for any occasionThe food was excellent from the
appetizer to the desert. The wait staff
was very attentive, friendly and helpful.
The steak and salmon was cooked
just the way we like it. The carrot cake
is heaven! Great selection of wines.
I would highly recommend it to
everyone.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMQuick and tastyWe were there for an early informal business lunch and found it a good spot for that. We received our requested patio table, in fact we had a nice quiet one in the corner. (We were one of the first people seated - they open at 11:45am and we were waiting outside at the locked doors!). The food was tasty and quick although my friend's sandwich was bit big for a lunch time portion (although it was so good he ate it all). The waitress was pleasant and seemed efficient (not that we tested her on that). So we were done and paid in an hour which is what we needed. I'd definitely return although I do wonder about the noise levels if we hadn't managed to snag such a quiet table.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staffThe wait staff were unbelievably good:friendly,efficient,informative and fun!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchPerfect spot for Brunch! Food was delicious, Service was good and the atmoshere is lively yet not to loud. Only complaint was that the hostess tried to seat us next to a table with 3 small children and when I requested another table that was not so close to a family, she told me (with an irriatiated glance) that the other tables were all reserved. I told her that I had made a reservation and and she reluctantly led us to another table that was wide open in a row of tables that never did fill up for the hour that we were there. Not a great opening to an otherwise lovely dining expereince. All other staff were very pleasant. Added bonus is that the parking in the building is reduced for O&B customers ($2 on Sundays). Very convenient.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for pre theatreGreat spot for pre theatre dinning. Great food, excellent service, a little on the noisy side, but overall a pleasant experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful mean, waiterHad a wonderful mean, waiter was very attentive. Only problem was that the noise level was high - had a very large table behind us. Otherwise, tables had enough room between each. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice for everyone...We were in town for the marathon with two kids and were looking for a nice restaurant near our hotel with a menu that would please everyone. Since we had dinner quite early, it was perfect for us. Good food, friendly and professional service. I would recommend this restaurant to friends. The place is also very good for groups and gets very busy around 6.30. Reservation recommended. It also has a nice terrace if you prefer sitting outside.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMit was a good experience nit was a good experience n great ambiebce -service was great too - very nice for a girls nite out5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJust what we expected!!We went to O & B before going to see Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert at the Sony Centre, and were looking for something fun, casual and tasty to start the evening off, which is exactly what we got!! Everything we had was really good, but the veal chop stood out as the winning dish of the evening! We got to sit outside on their patio (which in early May is a treat), and had a great view of all the action at the corner of Yonge and Front.
We'd go back again, and can certainly recommend it!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were great.Food and service were great. But if you're looking for a quiet place, this is not it. Only complaint, the mojitos; very ice-heavy, so weren't very flavourful.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing! TheThe food was amazing! The service was a bit slow took about a half hour for us to get our bills at the end of our meal. I will forsure dine here again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable service and foodImpeccable service and food quality! The servers attention to detail cannot be matched.
A professional run establishment. Would recommend to all!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very enjoyable dinner..We had a very enjoyable dinner.. loved their tasty bite desert option - clever.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy dining experience was okayMy dining experience was okay but not great. This restaurant would not be my first choice in the area. I was there for dinner - too loud to have a conversation at normal level. The menu is ordinary and pricey for the quality/offering. Wines by the glass are limited - 2 california chardonnays - no french burgundy option? Service was very attentive.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
