We were very excited to finally be dining out again and really anticipated a great Mark McEwen stamped meal, we were disappointed.
Food was very average, not bad or terrible in any way, just really lack lustre and over priced. I think Chef Mark needs to visit and shape things up to Top Chef quality like most expect when they pay for a meal at one of his restaurants.
We love Thornbury but won’t go back to Fabricca again.

Excellent overall… service knowledgeable and helpful, though staff generally seemed very stretched. Also, many wines on the list were n/a. I understand the circumstances and because we waited longer than usual we were offered more wine on the house- and we had neither complained nor asked . Much appreciated.

The evening I went to Fabricca, I received very poor service. I waited over 35 minutes to receive my drink order and was not informed of the specials or given all the information to make my experience outstanding. Additionally the cutlery and napkins were dirty. When I brought my concerns I was not given the opportunity to speak to a manager and provide my feedback. There was no follow-up.

We were last there in December and were so anxious for a great meal we booked as soon as the restrictions were eased. A wonderful meal - oysters for starters, meatballs for an appetizer, two different pasta dishes and a pavlova and cappuccinos for dessert! We should have walked home to the Bruce but what the heck - it has been months since we were able to indulge. Great service from Peter with able help from others. We enjoyed being on the patio in such pleasant summer weather. Thanks to management and staff for welcoming us and everyone else again. See you soon.

Our dining experience was good but not exceptional. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was knowledgeable and ensured that our courses were paced appropriately. Everything we drank and ate (Caesar salad, meatball appetizer, salmon and roasted chicken) was delicious. The weather cooperated and we were able to dine on the patio. All that said, we left satisfied yet generally underwhelmed. We had no complaints but have no desire to return either. My only recommendation is that the ladies room should be renovated or, if possible, expanded or relocated to a larger space. It is a tiny room with barely enough space for 2 people and there was little room for anyone to wait. Also, the night we were there, the ladies room was in need of attention.

I’ve been to Fabbrica at the Shops of Don Mills many times where the food, service and atmosphere has been exemplary. I must say that the Thornbury location was just as excellent, from the moment you walk in they made the evening spectacular!! Especially now dealing with the pandemic, they made you feel completely at home and comfortable.

Wonderful dining experience. The food was excellent. The patio was well done and spaced out. The staff wore masks the whole time. Felt very safe on my first patio experience in a long time. The waiter was a bit off standish, but no bother as we hardly saw him...likely on purpose. Would highly recommend.

The veal parm was an excellent sized serving! The 3 pastas were on the small side. The duck ragout pasta special should have more duck in it. The gnocchi should be a larger serving and was good but not mind blowing
Don’t think I’d return unless another couple picked this place to meet and eat! Good but nothing amazing

The food was good but was not special to match the premium price. Unfortunately we were seated in the back corner of the restaurant so we missed any “ambiance” that could have been experienced in the main dining room area.
