Great food. Amazing creations. Love the desserts. Definitely worth trying.
We wanted to try Origin before it closes next week, and we absolutely loved it- especially the tuna salad & bone marrow! Everything was fantastic- job well done
I travel and am frequently in To I always make a point of visiting Origin especially for their Chinois Duck! Also love their devilled eggs,the buffalo mozzarella,Brussel sprouts with Carm onions and pancetta and so much more
Fun to share plates. Service is always pleasant and reliable. Noise can be a problem but all else makes it worthwhile!
Devastated that chef is closing this space but look forward to his next project!
This was my first time visiting origin. I went with a group of friends for a late brunch. The service was fantastic, tostada was delicious, and they didn't be boot us out the door. Stayed for almost 3 hours and the server was still checking in on us. Highly recommend Forbes tasty brunch menu (the scones were *swoon*) and inexpensive mimosas.
The food is good, but the menu hasn't changed in what seems like years. I live just up the street but don't think I'll be coming back until the menu does.
When out steak was undercooked the chef and staff did everything to make it right. They made us a new steak and brought a complimentary appetizer. The staff were attentive the whole evening and the food was fresh and delicious.
I came to origin restaurant 3 times. I was totally disappointed by the last time. I took the tuna salad and it was not the same that the others times : not flavors balanced, too spicy, ingredients coarsely chopped. I don't want to go there one more time.
Maybe the chief was in vacation during christmas holidays...
The service was friendly but extremely slow. Been there a few times and I will take a break from it now. The appetizers were good but the Spanish fries (both orders) were passable at most.
Sorry just being honest
Service was a bit of a mixed bag.
I booked a table for 10 last Sunday at 1pm. Excellent food and service. We will definitely be back.
Good experience but draft your cold by the windows.
We went for Sunday brunch. The food was excellent, service was good (considering how busy it was, and the decor very attractive. The only downside was the overall noise level: difficult to carry on a conversation at our table.
Belle présentation de la plupart des plats, mais les saveurs sont plutôt fades.
De plus le service manque de cohésion: commander un verre de vin et le recevoir à la moitié du repas, ce n'est pas l'idéal.
Note globale: beaucoup de potentiel mais tombe rapidement à plat et ce malgré une ambiance très bien.
Vu la multitude de restaurants à Toronto, je n'y retournerais pas certain.
We didn't really even know about this place but just picked it because of location, and our daughter living close by, had passed it and said it looked good. It was one of the best meals all of our party of 4 had had in a long time. All the dishes were superb and the best brussel sprouts ever. Even those who don't like them loved them! The raw tuna salad was excellent as well as the calmari. One of the diners is vegan and she was accomodated no problem. The drinks and wine list were very good. The service was great and our server was lovely...didn't get her name. We did not know the chef was a judge on Masterchef until we were told by someone else but I can see why. Presentation was beautiful too.
Thank-you so much.
The food was delicious and everything was presented beautifully. I'd only ever been there for brunch (which is also fantastic!) but I will go there in the evenings very often from now on.
Very nice, the food was superb....the wine selection was a disappointment, and the price bandwidth was shocking....shame it took the edge of what could have been a 5 star experience
We ate early before theatre tickets. Party going on in the upper bar area that was loud, but we were able to hear each other and enjoy our evening no problem. Servers were great and very attentive, but a little slow to pick up signals (ready to order, refills, check). Food and cocktails were delicious! Would definitely go back.
Everything about Origin was good, though if you're looking for a really special place this isn't it. Good ambiance (though perhaps a little dark for brunch) and a creative menu that could have perhaps been a little more generous in terms of portions.
Origin is a favourite place to dine every time I come to Toronto.
Great food. Great service.
Buffalo Mozzarella , Pears, Honey and Pine Nuts
Beet Salad are my wife's favourites.
Spicy chorizo fries were delicious as well as the burger.
Restaurant was great - only real issue is there was a table of 6 right beside us who were so loud it was hard to have a conversation - the restaurant might consider not having a 2 right beside a 6 as the tables are quite close together.
