Took 45 minute for service despite it not being that busy. They were out of almost all the beer
Service was extremely slow, mimosas were mostly juice, food wasn’t great
Poor experience this time - very slow service
Amazing food. Especially the pickle pizza. Only complaint is that the music was way too loud to talk, we had to yell. Not a good first date spot.
super slow service, very intense music for a sunday morning. but the food and ambiance was awesome
Very romantic with my bro adhi
We really enjoyed the vibe there and the view is great, our food come out before our waters and we saw our server 2 times. People were getting helped before us. The food was great just the lobster pasta was very bland. Would come again though, just for the view.
Long time Chelsea supporter and first time being at the fox on John and wow what an experience to say the least. Loved the entire atmosphere. I will definitely be there as much as I can
Flies everywhere, dirty dishes, was asked for additional money after leaving a $20 tip because I always tip and the bill was $145.
Brunch with my mom and daughters - outrageously loud techno music for Sunday Brunch at a British Pub? There was no such loud music when we were seated.
A young couple at the next table left because of the noise level. Who’s in charge of this policy? I asked our server who said there is no DJ but didn’t say anything else.
If the mimosas contained alcohol it must have been rung out of a cleaning mop.
Felt bad for overwhelmed servers.
Bad experience. Hope yours is better.
Loved it. My family and I had hubby’s birthday lunch.
Would go back.
Best place to watch Chelsea play
Amazing patio and fantastic service. The food was outstanding as well, would definitely visit again!
Went here on a date did bottomless mimosas & brunch. The servers were efficient & so so friendly. & the food was great as well.
Excellent pricing & great warm ambiance! I’ll definitely be returning ☺️
Food looked good but was horrible and servers were not attentive and unhelpful.
It was my second time coming here but this time definitely wasn’t as enjoyable. There was a live DJ and the music was so loud that you couldn’t hear yourself talk. Definitely wasn’t the vibe for a Monday night dinner date.
The first time was so peaceful and totally took away from loud construction that was going on throughout John st.
By no means is this meant to be a nasty review but I hope that this is constructive feedback to make your restaurant a better place!
Waited over 15 minutes to be seated even though I had made a reservation,
Service was Slowwwwwwwww. We were seated at 1:10 and received our 1st round of drinks @ 1:45.. I wouldn’t say anything if it was busy , but it wasn’t. Our drink order was a bottle of beer and two large draughts. So shouldn’t take 30 mins to get that. We would of ordered food but ran out of time
Nice spot with a good patio in downtown Toronto. We had a nice brunch - food was good and lots of selection.
My experience at Fox on John was not great due to:
1. Loud Music
2. Food was not good for the price we paid
I have never experienced service like this in my life. Not sure what my friends and I did to deserve our order not being taken until we had sat for 30 minutes. The restaurant wasn’t even busy. Wouldn’t rule out racism given we were the only people of color and the only people being ignored. Food was pretty good hit I will never return. no introduction, no asking if we liked our food/were okay, and it was insanely slow. She also had absolutely no response when we thanked her after the bill. I have never left a negative review anywhere but this is the worst dining experience I have ever had
The service was slow, the music was extremely loud (considering it was Sunday morning) and the food was very underwhelming considering the price. Will not be returning again for brunch.
Really great atmosphere! Servers were very friendly and drinks were amazing!
Very good bb b.
On google it says they open at 11 but when we got there, they had a sign - $7 big fox brunch between 7-10am I think?
if I knew they opened earlier I would've gone cause I ended up paying $16 for the same plate ☹️ other than that, good service and good food. Would recommend.
Unfortunately there was no sound for the soccer game and the DJ was super loud (although he was good) but overall experience was good :)
The staff were really unhelpful and clearly had their favorites when it came to seating.
It was great, just the music seemed to be a bit too loud, otherwise it was a great experience!
Server forgot about us for almost an hour and gave someone our table after being moved inside during a thunderstorm. But a different one noticed we were still waiting and was able to get us seated and served quickly!
Amazing food and staff
Good atmosphere and variety of food choices.
We had a reservation at 4pm and at 4:40 we still had not been seated. We arrived on time and still had to wait. We ended up leaving as it was probably still going to be another 15 mins.
Alexandro was very attentive, great service, food and atmosphere
It was loud. The food was very average. And the patio was packed. Far less than 6ft between tables.
I had an amazing experience at Fox on John. Brought my family here to celebrate Father’s Day, where we sat in the booth. The service was amazing everyone was super friendly and attentive. The music was good, drinks were amazing! We enjoyed all the food that we ordered so much that we ordered some to go! Wings were tasty! The chicken fingers were well seasoned and they had the BEST calamari I’ve had in a LONG time!! The food we took to go wasn’t as great as the food we had at Fox on John but I think that’s only because we had to reheat it and food just isn’t the same when it’s not fresh. But overall we had an amazing experience and we’ll definitely be visiting again soon!!
The service was quite slow. And the servers kept saying we will have to leave soon even though the patio was pretty much empty.
Don’t the opentable waitlist and let random groups of people in before the ones waiting in line. We were told it would be a 30 min wait for a table of 2 and we ended up waiting 3 hrs. They have no limit as to how long a table can stay so that explains the wait times. Food was just mediocre and super cheap wine on the menu. Overall not worth it in my opinion.
I love the food here and they have good vegetarian options + nice cocktails.
The service hasn't been great both times I have visited - delay in getting the order, getting the wrong drink, not getting the table in time after making a reservation etc. , all have happened to me in 2 visits.
Most of the staff us really sweet and hardworking though. The ambience is nice and cozy.
I would probably give them the benefit of doubt and think that the service issues were cuz of short staffing and lack of preparedness due to the whole covid situation and rapidly changing rules.
I like the food and would like to go again and see if I get a better experience. The Mediterranean pizza, pasta Primavera were really good.
Very helpful and attentive servers and hosts. Food was good too
Our waitress Melly was super friendly and follow-up with us and made sure we were happy and comfortable. The managers there were super friendly as well and made sure to say hello to us and see how our experience was. I always go here as the vibe, food and the staff are amazing! 2 thumbs up!
