Its two exclusive private dining rooms offer the perfect space for social gatherings, celebrations or corporate events.

Refined yet casual, O&B Café Grill, Bayview Village’s expansive menu of North American and Italian classics offers something for everyone, including fresh, made-from-scratch soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas and fire-roasted pizzas.

    Overall the dining experience was very disappointing. The food was not up to par. I had eaten here before Covid and the food was always excellent. I do not know what happened but I do not plan to spend my hard earned dollars on really awful food. I do not plan on coming back anywhere soon.

    This restaurant is tired and unfortunately, the quality of food has really declined. I could not eat the grilled calamari because it was so tough and I regret not sending it back. I will not be returning.

    The overall experience was very good, but our server was not on top of things like food and rink orders, he only checked back near the end of our main course. The restaurant was not busy. The assistant hostess was more attentive than our sever. She should have gotten the tip, not him.

    It's was empty on a Friday night. We like cracked pepper from our server but nothing but salt and pepper. Was expecting a cool vibe, but rather basic. Food was ok but not great. Sever pleasant and friendly. They knew it was my husbands birthday but they don't do anything for Occassions. Location of restaurant great.

    I was surprised to learn that you do not do eggs over medium. We were told that they had to be over easy or hard. I've never been told that before. The food was not as good as I expected.

    When I make a reservation for 5 guests I don't expect to be seated at a table set for 6. It was very noisy (beside the coffee bar) and I was a little surprised to see the mashed potatoes offered to the guest who ordered a mediocre steak it was an extra $7 charge. I try to support local businesses, but I won't be returning any time soon.

    SO DISAPPOINTING!!! I have always loved O&B until recently- went to the Blu Mountain O&B for Easter with family and last night Bayview Village with my Management Team. The service was awful - it is the first time in years I have left 10% tip. The food was mediocre! The Caesar salad was as if it was right out of a bag you buy at the grocery store. Will not return!!!

    We were a group of 5 ladies in for brunch on Saturday. It was quiet, lots of tables were available. We were welcomed warmly by the hostess and seated immediately. Someone came over and served water right away. However after that, we found the service quite slow. The restaurant wasn’t too busy. The food was good and everyone seemed to enjoy what they had ordered

    We were expecting a better experience given Bonaccini’s reputation. Very expensive for what we had to eat. Ginger ale flat (but was replaced on request). Turkey burger dry and inedible. Pasta fairly uninteresting - expected more from this restaurant. Basically a pizza restaurant as opposed to what was expected. Maybe expected too much and shouldn’t have. Restaurant almost empty but very noisy. Would not go there again.

    Waitress was fantastic. Enthusiastic and attentive. Too bad she wasn’t the chef too as the meals weren’t up to par. For example, my wife asked for medium eggs on her salmon bennies and when she cut into her eggs the yolk squirted all over her. That is a new definition for medium.

    We had a lovely lunch. Our only complaint was that when asked for bread to go with our salads, they responded with the fact that they didn’t have any…..yet. Very weird for a restaurant with high standards like this one. At the least they could go to Loblaws in the same mall and buy some. Quite disappointed.
