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.

    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.

    Our waitress was very good. Unfortunately the food was not. We ordered 2 pizzas, a pasta and a salmon. The salmon came out quite hard. And the pasta was over cooked. I would expect a restaurant at this level would not make such simple mistakes. Though after we told our waitress about it, they didn’t charge us for two appetizers. I truly hope the kitchen will improve as I love the location of this restaurant.

    Server was great, but food arrived cold (smoked salmon benny) and had been sitting (english muffin cold and spongy). Very noisy for a family brunch (too loud). Michael Bonacini should be ashamed of himself.

    We had the lamb chops ,my wife had the salad and I had the mashed potatoes. The potatoes were excellent so much that I had to try and keep my wife from taking them. The lamb was also excellent we chose medium and it was prepared perfectly, best we have had in a long time.

    I associate the O&B brand with great quality and good restaurants but the Cafe at Bayview Village was underwhelming to put it kindly. Uninspired menu and bland food. Service was fine but we won’t be back.

    My lunch was delicious and the service was great...always there when you needed them but not intrusive. The noise level was a bit of a challenge. I was surprised how noisy it was at 12:15. I was also there with someone who was older, I might not have noticed the noise level if there with a friend. Great experience overall though. Great food, service and ambiance!

    The food was not very hot and desperately lacked flavour. The steak was chewy and not cooked to medium well either. I feel the quality has gone down and they cater to a senior demographic. The food took a long time to get served too! The only good thing was the latte and americano I had. It was Mother’s Day brunch so it was disappointing!

    Horrible dinner and service. If you are going to have a party room, then staff properly so that your restaurant guests are not left for 55 minutes waiting for entrees that came out cold and gross in the end. Terrible experience. Will not be back.

    Haven't been here in a while. Still great service, food presentation is good. Wines by the glass are good. Funny experience with the food, it was really good except when it was disappointing. Grilled calamari was rubbery but garnish was super tasty. Tuna Niçoise, the tuna just wasn't that nice green beans were too tough to eat, look it's fine but at $27 you're looking for a little bit more... Duck Pizza was... Okay. Seared greens were fantastic. Kind of a varied experience. I'm not sure the value was there for us overall.

    The service was great given this is the first time I took my toddler son to a restaurant. However there was another table in which the lady was speaking very loud in a different language. It overpowered our table conversations to the point that it was quite disruptive. I was hoping the service staff/manager would have stepped in to ask the guest to lower her voice… because this lasted for quite awhile - thanks!
