Oliver & Bonacini Cafe Grill, Bayview Village Ratings and Reviews
We booked a table for 2 expecting to have tea for 2 for $15 as the sign outside of the restaurant, but after sitting down we were told hat it was only available on Monday to Friday. Since we have had our lunch already, we ordered a soup of the day which was onion soup for $9 a bowl. The price was reasonable but the quality was disappointing. It was the worst onion soup we ever have had. It had some shreds of cooked onion, pieces of crouton and few small lumps of dried cheddar cheese. The color was merely light brown and the texture was watery. The worst part was the taste. It has no taste as regular onion soup, instead it was a bit sour and a bit of very light beef broth. We could not finish the soup and asked for the check. Before we paid we told the waiter about our feeling to the soup and show him how watery the soup was. He was very polite and said he would not charge us for the soup. Even though we did not need to pay, the experience there on the onion soup was really disappointing!
I ordered the pasta special for Monday night and the flavour was alright however the portion for dinner was maybe an appetizer size but billed as a dinner choice. There were 5 pasta raviolis in the bowl with a little rapini. I did not find this an appropriate portion especially for dinner.
I always enjoy this restaurant at Bayview Village and have never had a bad meal there. The staff is very friendly and helpful but the kitchen was extremely slow in getting our food to us. Luckily we enjoyed our guests and tried to ignore the wait. Hopefully the tardy kitchen was a one off and we’ll be able to up the star rating when we return.
Absolutely terrible. This restaurant parades itself as a nicer than average establishment. Don’t be fooled. We were there almost 2 hours and only had an entree. We waited 40 minutes to finally give our order and receive water. We only got water because my husband ended up going to the bar and asking for it. Our entrees took another 30 minutes. I ordered the roast dinner. My beef wasn’t cooked correctly (over done) and the frozen broccoli was still icy and saturated with water. It was gross. Sent back. My husband order the cheese burger. They forgot every single topping: cheese, lettuce etc. Sent back. So almost 2 hours for mediocre food. And at that price point I expect way better. Will never return.
Reserved for Sunday lunch take a long-time friend for her birthday and requested a table on the patio (inside) for a quiet table which was accommodated. Our server was Jonathan and he was personable and provided excellent service. We both enjoyed our meals which we chose from the brunch and lunch sections.
It was a relaxing dining experience.....our waiter was very attentive....made sure our hot water is always filled up.
We ordered the liver and it was exquisite, generous portion, very tasty.....the pizza was great too, but we were so full after the liver we had to take part of the pizza home.
Food was absolutely excellent. We ordered the salt and pepper calamari to start, then went for the lamb gnocchi and turkey burger (added bacon!). Everything came on time and our server was terrific - can't remember his name but he was one of the gents wearing glasses! Great experience overall, and will absolutely be back for date night in the future.
My kids enjoyed their steak and salmon ordered. I enjoyed your soup of the day, caramel pumpkin. Both my husband and I ordered your Saturday night special ribs. We enjoyed the ribs but we find the combination with the corn on a cob a bit awkward to eat and the coleslaw we would prefer some fresh vegetables instead.
