O&B Café Grill, Bayview Village is the first location of Oliver & Bonacini’s casual dining restaurants. Despite its North Toronto location, this large urban space feels very downtown.

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.

    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.

    Unfortunately, the quality has gone down drastically. The food was comparable to what we get in the IKEA cafeteria, but for three times the price. The batter on the fish and chips was too thick and not crispy at all. And because the fish had been previously frozen for a long time, there was a "not fresh" smell coming from it. The fries that came with the fish were over salted. The burger was a flat patty with only salt as the seasoning. Service was good and the ambiance was what you'd expect from a mall restaurant. It's really too bad that the quality of food has decreased. This used to be a really nice restaurant.

    We’ve been coming here for years. On this visit, we discovered that O&B had changed their brunch menu from sophisticated selections to basic diner fare. Diner quality food for twice the price. We were so disappointed. I guess they are targeting a different demographic now. We won’t be coming here for brunch ever again.

    Have been going for years but the menu needs to be adjusted as it has had its day. The facility is suitable and the staff are very helpful and courteous. It might be good if they were to establish something revolutionary such as a senior special which suits their neighborhood or smaller portions to fit their lifestyle.

    I have the Steak & Egg and my daughter has the 8 oz. Sirloin. Both ordered for medium done but my steak is kind of medium-well. The steaks are way too salty especially I saw there are quite a lot of elderly dining at this place. I suggested to lower the sodium level for general health purpose.

    I ordered the beet salad, with smoked salmon. The smoked salmon was very good, but way too many beets. The salad contained about 1/4 cup of arugula which was disappointing. Our server was very nice and did a good job tho.

    The appetizers were good as well as the pizza but the main course werent great. Its a food just to satisfy your hunger, nothing to indulge in. The steak skewers were overcook, the pasta was very aldente, barely cooked and dried. I wouldnt make a special trip there again, only if I was shopping in the mall and had to eat something.

    We had a great time. Since we are seniors, most meals are too large for us so we split the calamari appetizer, the fungi pizza, and the sticky toffee pudding. Everything was delicious and our waitress was a real sweetheart.

    When I made the reservation, I stated that it was for our wedding anniversary. When we arrived, the waiteress greeted us with a happy anniversary and after we finished our dinner, she brought us the tirimisu and it's on the house. It was a pleasant surprise and we were very grateful for the restaurant's thoughtfulness. Will be back for sure. Also, I'm so glad they have included a very extensive kid's menu so my kids can choose whatever they want. Everyone had a great time there.

    This O&B has lost its brand and quality. Deco is outdated, menu is laminated, wrinkly, and sticky. The upholstered bench needs re-cushioning. I paid $27 for a dried turkey burger. The dumplings for appetizer was so soggy. O&B at Bayview Village used to be popular place to go and dine. This is so far from what O&B stands for. Disappointed for the dinner evening.

    I have been to the Bayview Village O&B Cafe Grill a total of four times and have never had a bad meal. Service was a bit slow this past Saturday at 6pm but I would imagine post-pandemic staffing has challenged every restaurant in the GTA. Portion sizes are a bit small for the price so if you are a big eater you will need an appetizer or two before the main. Buck-and-a-half for dinner for four including taxes and tip but nobody drank alcohol. I would return in a heart beat.

    Food is excellent. Service especially our waiter was excellent. The place is way too loud especially for a business lunch. I’d maybe go back with family or friends for a very casual meal but never again for a business lunch due the loud ambiance. As well when asked for quieter location they offered patio which is in the mall hallway not outside - no thanks.

    The food was not as good as it used to be. I asked for liver and the only thing in good that plate was the mash potatoes I didn’t complain because I had highly recommended this plate to my guess, I was glad they didn’t ask for it. Worth saying the other plates were find Miss the bread and the in small portion The service was excellent.
