Needed a moderately priced casual place before a show at the Princess of Wales. Great location, lively buzz, very tasty burger, friendly service.
The food is reliably very good and reasonably priced for the neighbourhood.
Great food and very large portions: we shared the salmon poké as an appetizer. The salmon (raw) was fresh and the entire poké was delicious.
We also ordered the Short Ribs (served with sweet potatoes) and Jerk Chicken (served with rice and plantain) as entrées. Both were delicious.
Our table service was wonderful.
Great king street views. Lovely menu. Two vegetarian diners and lots of options. The Salmon was great and the pizza was good. Appetizers were very good and the restaurant did tweek preferences....no bacon.
Coffee were good. Waitress was very nice.
Will be back.
Excellent meal prior to going to the theatre. Service was excellent and quick.
I went to OB Canteen with my Mom to celebrate our birthdays before the theatre. We were impressed by the friendly atmosphere and attentive wait staff. I love healthy options for food choices and OB Canteen satisfies with delicious food with a lovely presentation. Going to recommend and come back soon!
Had a lovely pre-theatre lunch. Service was pleasant, food tasty. I appreciated the healthy grains-bowl option.
Canteen is perfect for pre theatre or pre TIFF. Portions as small - order 2 things or you'll leave hungry ;)
My daughter and I eat at the Canteen regularly, and really enjoy the menu. However, on this occasion we had to track down and ask for a server to take our order. The Canteen wasn't very busy at this time so we couldn't understand what the problem was. Anyway, the food is great and it is very handy for eating before a Lightbox screening.
All of the above. I do not like to be told how long my review should be.
Our party of four enjoyed a casual dinner before a film at TIFF. Our server was very helpful and friendly, and we did not feel rushed but made it to our film in good time.
I ordered the avocado toast with 2 poached eggs and arrived cold.
Great place for Sunday brunch with family. Servers were great and didn’t rush us. Have been here many times and will continue to visit. Love it.
Nice location and good food but no dining points :(
Food is great. Service is warm and efficient. Its easy to come in for a delicious lunch and get back to the office for your 1:00 pm meeting
We were seated right away, our server was very pleasant and the food came promptly. My husband loved his avocado toast, but my fresh fruit bowl with yoghurt and granola was just average (and granola and yoghurt portions were small). The biggest minus, however, was the coffee, which was tepid, and not very flavourful. I would likely give a second chance, though, because the location is great.
Great lunch today thank you! Burger was awesome and the turkey club was not short of avocado, yum! Thank you too for providing a little extra dip for those delicious fries 👍🏻😁
Tasty, casual, affordable dining close to the theatre district.
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!
Good tasting food
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.
Our waitress was super fun and friendly, and the food was great! I totally recommend this place to friends and colleges. Thanks Canteen!
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.
I ordered a potato pizza. The slices of potato were undercooked to the point of being crunchy - almost raw.
Food was pretty good but not outstanding. The server was nice but the service was slow.
O&B lost a regular on monday
It was mimosa day and I love mimosas so I ordered one, but when it came it was solid OJ. Absoloutley no prosecco in there, there wasnt even a hint of fizz. When I told the server he laughed it off like it was just me (the alcoholic) needed something stronger, and instead of offering to top it up with prosecco I had to order something else. I love the Gin and thyme drink so I had that instead. Normally they are fizzy with the cava but I thought at least I can taste the gin. I wasn't going to complain again.
Just before our mains, I had almost finished my gin and needed another. Maybe my poor choice of words, but i said "I think I'm going to order another one of these" and showed him the empty glass. The look on his pale gingery face said, wow you drink fast, but his words were "let me get you your food and then I'll see how you feel." He said it in such a nonchalant way, I didnt even realize he had basically said No until he walked away.
A managerial lady came seconds later with the food and asked if she could get us anything else, so I asked her for the drink instead and it came right away with no unnecasarry comments. A few minutes into the food our original server came back to ask us how the food was, he saw my drink had already been topped up. He laughed and said something like "oh you decided to get another already!" I was thinking - I'd decided when I asked you but you did nothing about it! It was only then he thought it was safe to take the half champagne glass of orange juice Id been ignoring all night.
In conclusion, all evening every drink was a different strength, the gins got stronger everytime until the last was basically pure gin and not a cocktail. Crap bartender.
I felt like my server made rude stabbing comments all night about how much I was drinking (4 cocktails with food) and still charged me for the OJ mimosa. I have never been spoken to like that from a server, I felt like it was an intervention.
O&B Never again.
Meh, I had a gift card so I'm glad I didn't pay for the meal itself, the ham on the breakfast items has got to go, give me real bacon or peameal.
Always enjoy my meal and the waitstaff are very good. Nice, friendly and helpful.
we are from out of town, and this a regular go to place for us: always caring service and good food
This our pre-or post-TIFF Bell Lightbox movie spot. The food is OK, we have never been disappointed in any case. Service is always great.
As usual, my wife and I were delighted with the friendly atmosphere, the reliably well-prepared and well-presented menu, and the attentive and capable service. We were "showing off" one of our favourite venues for an evening out (dinner and a film at the O&B Canteen and the TIFF Bell Lightbox) to our son, who was visiting from California. We were not disappointed, and he was pleased and impressed!
