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!
Great customer service as well as layout for their outdoor dining. Their menu is lacking and i suggest avoiding the steak frite dish. I ordered medium rare but it came medium well with some part almost cooked through. The remake wasn’t much better and i felt that it lacked flavour and seasoning. They took it off my bill which was a plus but I do think it needs work. Given they are not a steak house I do understand. Overall, the management and staff were very good. Food not so much.
Patio needs some TLC. Server was not too pleasant.
Had high expectations for the restaurant, not impressed! Very casual menu! Outside Patio not worth it! Looked at next door BiFF had much better ambience, looked clean & inviting!
Extremely happy with the service! They went above and beyond for us! Food was great! Everyone was super pleased! Thank you!
this has quickly become our favourite restaurant this year.
Even though we have visited this place many times over the years, I feel like O&B has definitely stepped up this year with the greatest customer service.
All the staff - from the hostesses to the servers, are amazing!! they have been very accommodating with any requests or questions we may have (I have a severe fish allergy and can rest assure that nothing on my plate has come into contact with fish). They are all also very friendly.
Even though there is a smaller menu (due to COVID) all of the selections have been great! They also make a really good red sangria!!!
We will definitely be returning to this gem of a restaurant!
Wonderful large outdoor covered patio. Buck a shuck oysters! Cauliflower appetizer a bit too spicy. Nice atmosphere across from Hockey Hall of Fame.
It was disappointing mainly due to poor food quality. Wings AND Cauliflower were heavily battered and salty. Had to send back the cauliflower for some unbattered, simply grilled cauliflower. Service was good. Very disappointing as it was our first dine-out experience on a patio!!
LOVED MY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER - DELISH!
Staff good, worked w our timing issues
Your basically paying top dollar for food thats at Boston Pizza.
Burgers, fish and chips, and not much else.
It was nice
Moins d’ambiance a cause de ce fameux covid
Amazing food and great atmosphere as always, but the service needs to be more attentive.
Inventive cocktails, a decent wine selection and some tasty nibbles. The patio space is well set up, and the service is excellent. Individual bathrooms are a very nice feature.
Patio seating, great job by staff with respect to cleaning and sanitizing. Very attentive service and great food. Smaller menu than usual but still a varied selection. Choice of paper menu or scanned QR code to your phone. Sitting alongside Yonge Street brings some noise so be prepared to raise your voice every now and then.
AWESOME Food and Service! Will definitely be back!
We went back for a second time this month - this time with our daughter to celebrate birthday. She has a support dog (small and very well behaved) and he was allowed to be with us. Everone around us loved him. We had a really good time - some of which was in the Happy Hour time period and enjoyed the choice of refreshment. Food was really yummy and good summer fare. We loved the ceasar salad and tested ribs, fish and burger, too. All was enjoyed.
Would highly recommend - receptionist and waiters couldn't have been nicer!
Nice patio. Good food. Good service
5 of us were seated at a sunny spot with no umbrellas. Service was very slow, we were melting in the hor sun and had to ask for our water jug to be refilled. People arrived after us and got their food before us. Restaurant was not busy because of Covid but we had long wait between app and main in the hot sun. Supposedly the umbrella for the 1 table that can seat more than 4 people on the patio was stolen. Maybe they should spend some money on a new one for their guests comfort.
Amazing place would definitely recommend and go back again. Beautiful atmosphere, good service
Patio was quiet which was perfect for what my friend and I needed that night
Everything was fine, but nothing stood out to me as an experience I need to repeat. Servers were brief and impersonal, menu was pedestrian with a chain restaurant feel.
Too many motor cycles but not the restaurants fault!! Other then that great experience!
it was great to sit out on a patio again -- all precautions were taken -- it felt great to be out
