Brushed off allergy concerns I had, leaving me feeling hesitant and unsafe eating my meal. Other than that, everything else was good.

Service took forever to bring our app out. Very disappointed in the food. We got the charcuterie board to start with and it was a few pieces of cold cuts which was not worth the price at all. Beautiful restaurant but definitely do not recommend or will be back.

Okay. Not thrilled with menu, drink sizes, or loud patio due to traffic. 5/10

Great service and amazing food. Music was loud on the main patio, but it was the perfect ambiance when we moved to the side patio. Looking forward to returning soon.

Had a great time tonight at our first in-person meetup since covid started. Great food and service! Only disappointment was we requested a special area to sit and spent time discussing with restaurant, but they did not honour it.

I stopped in at Oliver and Bonacini for the first time for Stage 3 reopen with some friends and I was extremely satisfied with the service and the food. Our server was also amazing and the music was great. This may become one of my favourite places to eat and the venue has an amazing patio and spectacular interior. I highly recommend and will definitely be back in the future.

The menu at O&B Cafe Grill meanders between French influence and southern cooking, it was hard to find something on the menu I would find interesting, and harder still to pair an appetizer with a main.

Food was fine for what it was, executed well, however the ideas behind the dishes are uninspired and plain.

Location is cool, a bit noisy, but to be expected, and feels right for the location.

It was great to be out again. The service was fantastic. The main was very good but the presentation of the starter was a bit disappointing ... charcuterie board should be on a board, not a plate.

Nice patio set up and entrance was great for pics. Didn’t care for the random drunks and homeless (I think) approaching trying to talk to the group while we were conversing…. Plus the ambulances with sirens seemed constant at one point…. Food was delicious…. A Brie pastry for appetizer was delicious… steak frites was good… the desert was amazing (chocolate cake) … overall…. Great place and would definitely go back

We visited Oliver & Bonacini on July 9th and the entire experience was outstanding. The hosts were so welcoming, the food was mouth-watering and fresh, and the server's attention to detail made the entire dining experience a five star. We had the savory beef empanadas, burger, steak and frits and it was perfectly cooked and delicious! We topped the evening with a coffee and their tasty creme brule and wow 👏 The music was nice and we will most definitely return here. Thank you to the wonderful team.

The service was exceptional especially after my friend did realize the dinner she ordered had dairy in it. The staff just made a different meal for her without any issues. They were very accommodating and the food was amazing. The beef bourguignon was delicious as well as the mushroom empanada. The carrot cake was amazing and it was a huge piece of cake they serve you. Everything from service to food was amazing

The nearest thing in Toronto to the Cafe de Paris. Steak frites is way better than anywhere else we have tried here. The food is generally a cut above our local restaurants except George, which is only for special occasions.

Easily one of the best meals I've had in Toronto. Had dinner with my friend who was a chef and he thought it was amazing. Mark was an excellent server and I will come back again. Soon,I hope.

Horrible food. Really lousy food. Menu was limiting in comparison to your Bayview Village location. I was really really disappointed and will and have shared my disappointment with family and friends. I am a chef myself. Really bad food.

Everything was great accept for the charcuterie board app. It wasn’t tasty or fresh at all. A lot of fat pieces in the meat. Not worth getting. The service was excellent.

The service and food was exceptional. When there was a misunderstanding between what I ordered and what I thought I ordered, the staff accommodated me to bring me what I thought I ordered. My mistake and yet the staff went above and beyond to ensure I had a great experience. Our entire experience was wonderful.

Overall I had a great experience - however the host really soured our moods when we got there. We wanted a different table, but the host said it was reserved (even though we reserved too). The family that came after was also a group of 3, so I didn’t understand the intent behind that, we came first and left later than them.
