Really excellent food and service! The restaurant is beautiful and modern-has an incredible outdoor seating area. Smaller portions because quality food is served. The menu has variety, gluten-free and very unique and solid pairings-you won’t be disappointed!

Went to O&B Canteen for the first time. It was Super Bowl Sunday; so the place was not so packed as it usually is. The ambiance is upscale-casual, with clean lines and perfect lighting. Service was very professional: attentive and efficient, but still friendly. We ordered from the WInterlicious lunch menu. Best dishes were the salad, the chicken with couscous, and the apple crumble. I would definitely go back for the regular brunch menu. This is a great place to have a light lunch with friends or colleagues.

We are frequent patrons of this restaurant. The food is great - high quality and perfectly prepared - very innovative. The service is always good and they are extremely obliging with accommodating where we'd like to be seated. Don't often make a reservation - but will from now on so that we can get the seats I like best! Feel free to share my comments with the restaurant.

The menu was very refreshing, the combination of ingredients you wouldn’t think of putting together... always pleased with my choice of entree, never disappointed.

A couple coworkers and myself booked for a Winterlicious lunch - as usual the food was delicious, with satisfying portions and simple recipes made consistently well. This isn't a regular spot for me, but I'm always impressed that I can return after a long span of time and the food is still reliably great. The service was quick and friendly, our server Alyssa was great!

I love going here for lunch during the week. The food is really delicious and the service is warm, attentive and accommodating. The bonus is that I can come in at noon, get a great lunch and still get out in time for my 1:00pm meeting.

Unfortunately the service was really bad; unlike other O&B places.

I made reservations online for O&B Canteen and as a joke, under special requests, I wrote " I would like a framed picture of tim the tool man taylor" and completely forgot about it......

Well props to the management. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💯💯💯

Winterlicious price fix menu. Arancini was great! Cubano lacked the requisite buttered and toasted bread along with most importantly the mustard! Apple crumble was alright. Cramped seating didn’t do wonders for the experience either.

Winterlicious menu offered good value, apps really good, the Cuban sandwich large portion but the beef short rib mac and cheese needed more beef. The banoffee dessert was way too sweet. There was so much sugar that it didn't melt but crystalized making the dessert grainy.

Went to O&B Canteen for a Winterlicious date night and enjoyed it very much! Drinks were good, food was great! Short rib mac & cheese was delicious! Great deal for food. Very lively spot (great for people watchers), loud at times but can't complain. Service was phenomenal! Would like to definitely go back and try out some other dishes from the menu.
