Great food, great service, amazing deserts. Definitely recommend it.
Great patio and excellent food with vegetarian options!
We had great food and lovely service. 10/10 for everything we had
The food was fabulous and the service was impeccable.
I highly recommend the french onion soup!
Amazing friendly service, food was spectacular and the patio set-up is very open and spaced out.
Beautiful restaurant, very knowledgeable staff and the service was amazing. Food was delish.
We went for dinner the Saturday before Toronto lockdown. The food was delicious and the heated patio setup was great.
We had a wonderful lunch on the patio. We even had our own heaters on each side of the table. The servers were awesome and the food delicious! Sad that we are in a lockdown...will wait to go back again!
Willing to give the full 5/5 if you somehow convince my date to go on round 2 with me
Anyways, great good, great service but a little pricey. Covid protocols were followed properly and was impressive
Superbe endroit place convenable et très bon service extraordinaire
I made a reservation for 2 on Friday night. We asked to be sat on the larger patio side which was not a problem for the hostess to seat us there. We were greeted by our waiter, who was friendly but said he never works dinner shifts - in which half-price selected wine and buck-a-shuck was not promoted (good thing I asked because that's what we had come for). The wine was great, the oysters were spectacular, and the cauliflower bites were delicious. Since it was a cooler night, we had the heater on beside our table. After a while it died down and was not giving off much heat - to which we were told that it could not be turned up any further. There was many other heaters that were at unoccupied tables which could have been moved to ours but we were never given that option so we sat there freezing by the end of the night. Would have been nice to have a server simply switch the heaters so we, as guests, would have been comfortable dining. We would like to come back but hope for more heat since it's only getting into the colder months.
Tom was great! Best turkey pot pie and spicy marguarita!
Great food! Great patio
We dined on the patio. Although it was chilly out we had 2 heaters on either side of us which were great. Food was served hot and stayed hot while we ate. Food was delicious and service great. A really enjoyable experience.
We had a lovely dining experience. The food was outstanding and the ambience superb. They have really tried to make outdoor dining as comfortable as possible.
Best part of the restaurant right now is the patio - covered and heated but lots of ventilation, high roof. Lovely service. Food and cocktail okay, but when one goes out to spend that kind of money on a special occasion, you hope for delicious.
The food was beautiful and the service was just right. I believe they are doing best they can in this difficult time.
Best service and the best patio. Great staff. Terrific food. Very safe during COVID
Great server who paced out our meal so that the oysters were served first. Wine selection was also great. A wider dessert selection would be a good idea.
Great heated patio! I was quite impress with the service we received.
Great thanks giving dinner
I absolutely loved the staff. Such positive and friendly service.
First time back in a long while, the place was quiet in decibels, great service, enjoyed the food , overall fantastic....
Only the patio is opened due to the Covid-19 restrictions but O&B has a nice patio with heaters too. The menu is not their usual full one but again I’m sure due to Covid, regardless the service was fantastic, food was good and we had fun!
Friendly service, tables all well-spaced at this time to avoid Covid19 crowding. We were on the patio and heaters got turned on as the evening turned cooler. Seems like an abbreviated menu but enough choice to keep everyone satisfied.
Very nice patio.
A good over-all experience. The music was a tad intrusive. Otherwise full marks.
Our server was very friendly, helpful and fun to chat with. Wish I could recall his name. We complimented him on his strawberry blond hair style. Too bad the patio was pretty much empty but during Covid it was easy to socially distance. I used a O & B gift card. Tuna burger and steak fires were yummy and we loved the half price bottle of wine!
great staff and great experience overall! Never disappoints.
Good food, friendly waiter. We sat outside so the city noise was a bit much at times with sirens but that's life in the big city.
Excellent experience. Nice brunch and leisurely get together with friends. Well sheltered patio.
Oliver and bonacini front street location great patio for physical distancing. Food is good. Friendly staff.
Service was amazing and food very tasty and fresh!
Perfect outdoor dining with heaters
Frequent visitors, especially for "Buck a Shuck" and apps. But it is time to bring back at least some of the favorites from pre-COVID menu, like selection of Poke bowls.
The service was wonderful and the food was so delicious!!
Excellent food with exceptionally attentive and careful service, in comfortable surroundings. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the fully covered patio. Could enjoy the city ambience at Yonge and Front, without excessive vehicle noise. Will definitely visit again. Sufficient vegan menu options, so wife and I were more than satisfied.
Amazing food, service and patio!!! A Toronto favourite.
Great open air covered outdoor patio with seating well spaced apart for social distancing. Very good avacodo toast from Brunch menu and $5. Caesar special. Will return regularly especially for buck a shuck oysters.
Very enjoyable patio lunch!
