Diner Reviews
  • "Not much to recommend it, at least at lunch. Perhaps better at dinner."

  • "It was quiet on a Friday night - Perfect for dinner before theatre - which is just across the road. Should have taken advantage of free parking offered. But very execellent service - very attentive and informative staff."

  • "My boyfriend and I visited Vagabondo on Saturday night. The place wasn't packed, but it was busy. Our server was wonderful. He was very attentive and helped us with our choices. The chef had an amazing Filet Mignon special. It was perfectly done with very delicious peppercorn sauce on top. We had rice balls for appetizer, and dolce vita for desert (to die for). All in all we had a great experience. Will be back for sure! Going to recommend this place to everyone we know."

  • "Food (particular the pizzas) was great and they bring a huge piece of cake if it's someone's birthday but the service overall is poor and inattentive. I made a reservation for a special occasion and they sat us up front in the bar area meaning we were virtually ignored."

  • "The minute we walked through the door we knew we were in for a treat. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. And the best part is that it wasn't too busy! How?!?!? I'll tell everyone I know!! Thanks for a great night, Vagabondo."

  • "I've been here 2 years in a row for their Fixe Price Valentine's day meal. Always a lovely experience, good food, big portions. The tables are placed close to each other though."

  • "My girlfriend and I went there on Valentine's day for dinner. We had a reservation for 8:45 and were sitted right on time. Restaurant was very busy as expected and tables were very close to each other which made it even hard for their staff to navigate through them. It took 25 minutes for our waitress to come to our table. She was nice and friendly and apologised for the delay; it looked like they were under staffed for such a busy night. They had a pre-fixe menu for that night and we had to wait for a long time for each course of our meal to arrive. The quality of the food was very good though so if you don't mind the long waits, I would recommend this place."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Vagabondo this past valentines day. We had the 4 course set, she had the chicken while I had the heart shaped pasta. Food was decent, portion size could have used some work (main was way too big). Service was great, atmosphere was alright, a little too crowded but that's Valentines day for you. Overall would recommend."

  • "The appetizers and main dishes are well done. Great big portions, great presentation, super flavors. The service, from the waitress to the manager, was excellent. They were both honest and clear which is refreshing. (they advised us we had originally ordered too much food)."

  • "Classy, excellent food. I had the salmon fillet and loved it. Will go back again."

  • "Had tickets to the Venus in Fur play at the Berkely Theater a few minutes drive away on the Friday night between X-mass and New Years. Originally made reservations for an early Dinner before the show, but had to change it that afternoon to a Post Theater supper. No problems with changing the reservation over the phone, for 9:30 PM that night. Service was very good, food was excellant (we both had the Chicken Parmagiana with Spagetti, followed by Tiramasu and coffee for desert). Food was prepared and served very quickly and arrived hot and fresh, but it was very quiet in the resturant when we arrived (maybe a dozen diners tops)."

  • "Not sure if this is always the case, but on the day we went we were the only party in the restaurant. The food was great, portions are huge, and waitstaff are polite and helpful. Would go again"

  • "The sesame salmon and halibut was cooked very well. Service was warm, attentive. I can't remember the wine, but it had a sleek shape to it - it had a fresh crispy-ness to it and easy to take down. Will come back again."

  • "Excellent food and very attentive service. Sun shining through window directly in my face made it a bit hard to see but otherwise our seats were good. Pizza was delicious and so was the tea."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "The feedback I received on others in our party was that the pizza and caesar salad were good. The Tuesday lunch special, meat lasagna, is a favourite for two from our party - whew! what a serving size! Perfect gnocchi dumplings for the Gnocchi Pomodoro I had :-) We attended Vagabondo as it was the favourite go-to place for one in our party. He was quite happy as he often enjoys the very reasonably priced express bar items. Overall, we all enjoyed our lunch. I will probably be returning with other colleagues on occasion as well as my spouse next time she needs to be downtown for appointments."

  • "We advised our server at the beginning of the meal that we had to be wrapped up in an hour and a half to get somewhere. We ordered our food right away - two bowls of soup and two main courses. Our soup arrived after more than half an hour. I had never before waited that long to have something pre-prepared (i.e. ladled from a vat into a bowl) delivered to my table. It took another hour for our mains to arrive. Our chicken and fish were over-cooked and quite tough. The chicken was so dry that it was difficult to swallow. We were now running late and asked for the bill. Our server dropped it off and ran away without taking the credit card we tried to give her. Another 30 minutes passed before the transaction was complete. Will not return."

  • "I attended this venue with my girlfriend before a show at the St. Lawrence Centre. We were seated at the lower lounge area which honestly isn't the best (Way too close to the bar), but they do have seating at a higher level that is probably a lot better. The service was incredible. Staff helped each other with tables and we were definitely taken care of. The food was outstanding! I'd definitely recommend this place to food lovers looking to grab a quick bite in the city."

  • "Best you order out from Vagabondo. The food really is good, but noise levels high and service is quite slow."
