    I loved this place. We have a 3 year old staff we're kind to her and us as a family. Still had a very upscale experience for what I consider a reasonable cost. I will be back the experience was so good.

    Reserved a table however there was no specific table for my wife and I. Placed at a table that was partially in the front entrance. Asked to be moved and was immediately accommodated. ( I question why make a reservation if there is no table reserved for you) It took about 10 minutes before our waiter came to us. That was after I asked another server to inquire who would be providing us with service. Our server was very polite and took our order. Our food came quickly and we did enjoy our meal. I was disappointed with the calamari as they appeared to be pre breaded and a bit tough. The mushroom soup was very good and the Margarita pizza I had was okay. For some reason I expected higher quality from the food. I enjoy the other O and B restaurants and was expecting better quality for the price we paid.

    Great spot for a quick bite pre-theatre. Noisy for conversation. Food not quite what O&B is known for. Server was fantastic: knowledgeable about the wine choices, followed up on food experience, friendly. Overall good.

    We ordered steak. The plate was missing ingredients ( no potato), just salad. I ordered a blueberry rosemary drink. They didn’t have any rosemary . Instead of asking if I wanted another drink, they just made the drink and told me “ we ran out of rosemary “. Seems like they don’t really care.

    Such a great restaurant. My friend and I ended up being seated in a very noisy part of the restaurant. They moved us to a quieter place and so many staff kept checking to see if the food, service and new table was acceptable. We felt so well looked after.

    The appetizers were a waste of money. Way too small. This was a business dinner and i was shocked at how small the calamari was and the spring roles and the pricing was ridiculous for these. They rivalled what the mains cost. The mains were good, but definitely not on my list to go back with my client. Plus there was no napkins at table when we sat. Had to request. Not great in my opinion and yet charged premuim prices. Wont be back anytime soon.

    We booked a table as we were going to a show right across the street at Meridian Hall. We were super early (about 45 mins for our 5pm table) We were seated immediately as it was pretty much empty. Our server whose name I unfortunately didn’t get, was super lovely and friendly. I think he may have been French Canadian. He was very attentive without being intrusive. I asked about the pizza because I LOVE pizza but so often I’m disappointed. He said if I didn’t like it he’d send it back for the chef to eat lol. Anyway there was no sending back as it was delicious. Think and crispy and so tasty. We had a couple of cocktails as it was happy hour. The restaurant really filled up from 5pm but it had a great atmosphere. Definitely recommended and already booked for our ext show on NYE!

    We had reservations for 8:30 and got there at 8:45 PM within our grace period. We were told at the door it was last call for food. We were seated immediately and then waited for 25 minutes to be served and the only reason we were served is we called the manager over. He then proceeded to tell us he wasn’t sure if the kitchen was open!!! He came back and told us they would make us a pizza. It gets worse from there. My better half ordered a 8 oz. Glass of wine and only got 5oz. The manager did come by and paid for everything because of what happened. We were at a concert across the street at the Meridian Centre, why would they close the kitchen at 9?? While we were there the 2 waiters that we saw were just looking after one table each who were paying. They were at those tables for 25 minutes. I did not realize it takes that long to pay your bill. We will never go back, not even for a free meal.

    Would definitely go back, but it wasn’t perfect. My partner ordered the mushroom soup, a dish he ordered recently at O&B in Collingwood and loved. Unfortunately the one he ordered at Front location was very bland. Was super busy and so kind of loud, but otherwise our dinner experience was nice and service was fast and friendly.

    We were in a hurry to get to the show across at the theatre. They ushered us in quickly and took our order on the spot without hesitation/changing of the guards (host took it directly). My tuna poke bowl was very tasty. My bourbon sour was nicely done. Though they did mix up our drink order with the table beside us initially, causing some confusion/delay. Still, we were in and out of there in half an hour. Very efficient. The washrooms needed some tending to - but that is on the patrons who aren’t thoughtful about leaving them clean for the next guest. Would go back, but for same quickie/convenient service / location, and not fine dining, but good food.

    Music was a little too loud and interestingly rock/pop. Service was good. I had the spaghetti seafood. 1 out of 5. Pastry sauce. Chewy octopus. A little disappointed. Had a guest from out of town who had the bolognese which he had said was good.

    The food was honestly some of the most basic and blah I’ve ever experienced, especially from a restaurant of this calibre. The “crispy calamari” was awful and anything but crispy, the Caesar salad was sub-par, the bolognese was embarrassing, even the spicy chicken sandwich was meh. My margarita was entirely all ice. At least my oysters were ok. I was left without a cocktail for 30 mins without my server offering me another. My server seemed flustered even though the restaurant was empty as it was still early before the dinner rush. I did appreciate the comp cheesecake for my sister’s bday that we didn’t even request. So they somewhat redeemed themselves with that gesture, I guess. I just wish the food was better. Immediately after we left the restaurant we were planning on what to eat next because we were so unsatisfied with our meals.

    Food was good quality. Nice wine list..albeit over priced. Timely service. Lighting was so dim many people had out their phone lights to see. Was busy and noisy but not expected. What was NOT expected was the lack of Gluten free options...1 main course and I was told some of the pastas could be made GF...and raw oysters. For an organization so vast they should be able to figure it out... salads could easily be made GF but nope not even greens. Was very disappointed...you would think we were in 1990. The spicy pad Thai was good gf option but lack of choice was surprising. One of few places downtown TO that have not kept up with the times and customer demand.

    O&B was fine, but they were a little confused with the service at times (e.g. bringing a caraffe of wine before they brought glasses). The food was average, not excellent or innovative flavours.

    A good location to get together with friends. Relaxing and welcoming. A range of food choices although expect to pay around $50 ish for dinner (no alcohol). Steak was tasty. Caprese salad was tasty even without the balsamic vinegar. Cheesecake was so so. Service was excellent from arrival through to service. Our wait staff was very nice and helpful. Parking was confusing because you have to park, come up to the restaurant to get a code and then go back down to pay for your parking. A parking reimbursement on your bill would definitely be more straightforward. Would definitely go back.

    Service was good, the food was very good but portions a bit small for the price. It was very loud and crowded and they rush you through your dinner. We hadn’t even finished our appetizers and they were setting the main plates on the table…. If you are in a hurry this is ideal but we were not. It was a decent place but don’t think we’d go back.
