    Everything we ordered was delicious! The portions were large and they split everything for us since we were sharing the items, which was very kind and very much appreciated. The service was very friendly (but a bit slow at times), I suspect because there were not enough servers (a common issue in many restaurants these days). Would definitely recommend!

    Went for lunch with a friend. Person beside us laughing so loud and it was echoing, it was hard to have a conversation. Didn't enjoy the dry baked chickpeas in the squash soup (waiter didn't indicate that this was part of the soup) and I understood we were to get a piece of bread with the soup and salad deal which we didn't. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Overall an okay experience.

    This is one of many return visits. As usual, The Bread Bar does not disappoint. The fries and bread plate were very fresh and we could not stop eating. We ordered 2 18 inch pizzas , The Bee Sting and The Apple Bacon, and they were both amazing. As you can imagine, the left overs were delicious for lunch the next day. Great Caesar and pear ginger drinks. Till our next visit…

    Cafe Americano: forgettable. Hummus: Lemon zest? I noticed hardly lemon. And if there is lemon zest, the amount is minimal. I make my own hummus, which I eat every day, and I use a lemon concentrate. So when I see "lemon zest" on a menu, I'm expecting something far brighter in taste and fresher than I make at home. I told my better half the next time we're out and there's hummus on the menu, make sure I don't order the hummus. The crispy chick peas on top are a delight. They should be an appetizer item all on their own. Pizza was good, but bottom crust was soggy, not crisp. Loaded fries: Quantity does not mean quality. Lots of places overpower their french fry portions. If you're offering thin fries, ensure the portion is not so large that the bottom of the portion is soggy and uninspired. The sauce over top is delish, but just not enough to go with the rest of the fries. Overall though, happy this establishment is downtown. Good location, nice atmosphere, albeit when crowded the noise level is pretty high. (My hearing isn't the best).

    Our server Matthew was excellent, couldn’t ask for better. The pizza though I found a tad under baked. The crust was a bit soggy, not my favourite. The butcher block and the calamari were excellent. I would definitely go back

    Server must’ve been new, not very attentive, and didn’t know the menu items very well. Appetizers were good but main courses most were awful. Pizza crust was soggy, chicken in the taco bowl was like a hockey puck. Pasta had no salt or flavour. Good didn’t come out ant the same time so most of us ante cold meals while waiting for the final 2 dishes to be served Overall not a good experience. Waiter never came to check either.

    The food and environment were good. However, We were not told when we were seated or when I made the reservation online that our reservation was only for 1 hour 45 minutes. We felt very rushed throughout the meal which was very disappointing. I would not have booked it if I had known we would be rushed in and out.

    I really enjoyed the food it was great. I found some of the male server/bartenders were really loud talking to patrons. I found we were stopping conversation because we couldn’t hear each other. The server took forever to get refills as well as the bill. I think the layout with everything at the back of the establishment (register and kitchen) didn’t work in their favour for that reason. The food was excellent.

    Every menu item looks fantastic, so it was hard to choose ! We had four dishes to share between three people and we brought home a bit of pizza. Creative cocktails. Service was just perfect. Lovely ambiance. The one drawback is the darn expensive parking in this area. TIP … book for after 6 pm so you only need to pay evening parking in the closest lot.

    Food was great. Service started out just as good. After our mains were dropped off we didn’t see our server. We sat with empty plates for almost a half hour. When we ordered coffees we were asked if a to go cup was ok because another reservation was due in 3 minutes. Needless to say our entire table was not impressed. No where when booking the reservation does it say that your time is limited to 90 minutes.
