That said, the menu is very processed-fake-meat focused, which is not our preference. The food was okay, not great.

As a devout vegan I am grateful for any vegan restaurant. However the noise level made it hard to talk, the food was good but not equal to the price, and the service was below par. We prefer Wildseed and Millennium.

But the service was so lackluster. We were greeted immediately and things started off well and then we never saw the waiter again. Had to order other items from circulating managers. Asked for check multiple times. Things happen, perhaps or server got very busy but if that was the case there was no communication with support staff and that should be addressed. Would do takeout.

This could be a five star restaurant. The food was ok more like 3-4 stars. I love the concept of the restaurant. I would come back but for like happy hour verses an elegant date

It was nice, but not what we were hoping for. Italian restaurant was the description…

These days restaurants are struggling to staff and it felt like the staff, albeit ridiculously kind and enjoyable, were just a bit off. It took a very long time to order drinks, which were worth the wait, and our meals came while our table was full of our appetizers that weren't yet half eaten. But the server happily and without a problem took them back. Any issues we had at all with the service was completely made up for with the food and cocktails. An absolute vegan gem and enjoyed as much by my non vegan friend.

We ate brunch, I had the Italian Scramble. It was an omelet, not scramble, and that would normally be fine. The "Just Egg" replacement for actual eggs had an odd texture, but they gave it good flavor. Same with the "Incredible Italian Sausage". The potatoes that came with it were delicious... perfect blend of crunch and soft, with good flavor. I really enjoyed the green salad that also came with the meal, I have no idea what the vinaigrette was, but I really liked it. My sister had the frittata, and the blending of potatoes with egg substitute worked better, with the potatoes camouflaging the texture. Baia did a great job with all the flavors. Cocktails were good, (mimosa for my sister, Baia Mary for me), but priced at the high end. Service was excellent. Sound level a bit noisy for me, but not bad.... I'm hard of hearing and could still hold a conversation with my sister. Lively ambiance. I strongly recommend BAIA to vegetarians and vegans, especially if you enjoy this style of food. A fun place to go where you don't have to scrutinize the menu to find something you can eat.

We are usually bound to the two or three items on a menu that are vegan so, we really looked forward to eating here-the food was so delicious! We booked far in advance as we were travelling from Toronto so, we had been looking forward to this for a while. We were quite shocked by the service; however, as our server seemed very distracted by a private party (understandable, but unfortunate). I would recommend the food and atmosphere to others, with caution regarding the service.

Beverages ordered once we're brought twice by two different servers. We were charged for a glass of wine we didn't order. We had to ask for the check twice and it took 20 minutes after we finished eating to receive the check. The order was wrong but the server never came to check on us, so we rather paid for the additional glass of wine then wait longer. Such a shame because the food was fantastic!

I would completely understand if they're understaffed, but a little acknowledgement would have gone a long way. I would have been more than understanding. We got seated and waited 20 mins until someone helped us and 30 minutes with no water. They forgot a dish order and didn't once check up on us. Aside from the awful service, the food was amazing. Everything was prepared well, great flavors and amazing execution for an all plant based meal. Great options for gluten, soy and dairy free! Highly recommend the cheese sticks!

Generous portions except for the tortellini. Canolli dough was not that nice, hard to cut, but pistache flavor was good. No wifi for clients, i asked the waiter and he said no wifi in spite of founding a network called baia guests. Overall a very good experience.

Tortellini entree with only 7 small portions? Even the Negroni was sooo small!

We used to love the French place that used to exist at this location earlier. However, a pretty nasty Karen server wanted to remind us how families are not welcome and how kids are a liability. She probably does not have legal training in liability law but that did not stop her and ruined entire evening. So do save your money and go where servers are not racially biased Karens who think they need to teach non white parents.

Abit over priced for the quality. It was noise and we were seated right by the entrance which was really cold as the doors was opened. Our server was ok, not the best and a lot of room to improve.

I was put at ease right away & not rushed to order. The food is delicious: try the garlic knots. The tortellini dish was one of the best I ate. My husband went for the Rigatoni which he devoured very quickly. The desert was fab too - I however couldn’t finish mine. The cocktails were also very good! We felt well looked after and cannot wait to return!
