Fox on John
Great spot with super friendly and prompt service. Highly recommend!
Service was excellent, food okay, noise level was very loud. Not a place to go for a quiet time.
It's lowkey with great service and value! Highly recommended!
The most underwhelming avecado toast ever! The bread wasn’t warm/toasted, only a had a 1/4 -1/2 avacado, about 2 tablespoons of feta, a few lithh the orange slices, six tiniest slivers of red onion but the poached egg was done as ordered. Not even a bit of salad on the side! And I paid $15.00 for a such diet meal! Total rip off.
Waiter was excellent. He was very helpful with our meal choices, kind and polite
Calamari was fantastic. Overall pretty good food, and decently priced.
The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the quality that you get. But the best thing about this restaurant is the amazing decor inside! Wing chairs, wing couches accompany normal chairs to make table and booth seats adding to the ambiance of the old English gentlemen’s club. The raised level in the back with the bookshelves and a large painting of a man on a horse over the fireplace fit everything perfectly. I am already planning to come back to try new menu items and to show my friends who enjoy a unique restaurant and/or love history this great place!!
Hi Emily! Thank you very much for your very kind rating and review! We definitely do love our decor and glad to hear it was memorable. The library is definitely a popular space. Looking forward to having your friend and you back soon! Allison Fox on John Team (106 John Street)
The washroom was filthy and had no toilet paper. I opened the menu but there was nothing inside. The wine I ordered was not in stock. The sever substituted another wine but only when I confronted her did she admit to it.
Hi Nancy, Thank you kindly for taking the time to rate us. We definitely want to hear more about your visit to determine the areas in which we can improve. When you have a moment, please feel free to send an email to our General Manager, Richard at email@example.com to discuss in more detail. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Really slow service but great otherwise
Food was excellent! Servers were friendly. Our server I believe was new as there was another server with her but she was great. Atmosphere was warm and cozy. Loved the big comfy chairs and couches. Will definitely come back again.

Great food excellent service. Erica was amazing as our server would highly recommend!
Loved the set up! We had a great server - he was very helpful, checked on us often and had excellent customer service! The food was delicious and reasonable - saying that, we were there for the 2020 special. Would totally recommend
The service was super slow. Basic ceaser salad has very little on it (doesn't come with bacon?)
Food/ Service was decent. Reasonable prices for the surrounding area. Great spot for before the theatre/movies.
All four of us had an excellent meal. The mac and cheese with bacon was delicious. The Rueben and Cubano sandwiches were very tasty. The buffalo chicken wrap was described as the best example of this that the person ordering had ever had. The atmosphere was cozy, and the noise level energetic. Our server was awesome! Just the right amount of attention. And, it was nice to have the manager come around to check on our meals as well. Definitely coming back.
Loved the atmosphere.
Would have preferred if when the waiter, Levi, when offering us if we would like gravy with the fish and chips or to swap out Reg fries for sweet potatoe fries that there was an extra cost.
Good food... Not impressed with the poor service we had.
Not very welcoming. The staff were not very pleasant or friendly.
Had Christmas dinner with the family, didn’t wait too long to get a table even on a busy day. Food was delicious but portions were slightly small for some of the main courses. Other than that, service and environment was great!
We arrived 10 minutes early for our 6pm reservation and were promptly seated at a cozy table for 2. Our server, Thomas, was engaging and attentive. The jambalaya was delicious. This was our first time at Fox on John. Would definitely go back and recommend.
Our table was in a very busy location and therefore very noisy. Although our drinks were brought quickly, dinner service was slow and we waited a long time for condiments. Then coffee took forever to come, as did the cheque. And then even payment took a while. Would not go back.
We went on a Wednesday evening before a theatre performance. Sat in the armchairs by the “fireplace”, we were really comfortable the bonus was that it was 1/2 price bottles of wine and mussels. Food was great, there four of us and we had the butternut squash ravioli, Jambalaya, and rice bowl. All entrées were very good. The “breaded” platter made of all kinds of fried thingswas great-calamari were superb. Highly recommend, we had a lovely evening!
It was very ok. Server had little to no menu knowledge. One of the guests at the table asked about gluten free beer or cocktail options and the server replied “I don’t know anything about that stuff” rather than go ask a manager or bartender. One of the dishes came out extremelyyy spicy, which wasn’t noted in the menu. Manager did take that off the bill which was very nice and appreciated.
Folks from out of town/country visiting
They enjoyed the environment
Our first time but recommended to us. We were heading to the theatre after. It was a good choice and we would go back.
we were there sunday at 11 am. DEC 8th.
excellent services. very polite and fast. young man served us. i was given fries in error instead of salad, and he fixed it immediately.
loved the bottomless mimosa deal. very yummy.
great brunch place before a show at Princess Wales.
It was a bit weird. Service was really unusual - big mix up with giving us the wrong menus/prices and wanting to charge us higher price even though the menus (and website) they gave us had lower price? Server didn't think it was an issue/expected us to pay the higher price, Then they brought us rice bowl with "ground beef" and kept insisting it was "ground beef" when it was thick slices of steak. Very confusing and odd. Been here several times and food/service was good in the past, but tasted different this time for sure. Overall odd experience with the server. Pretty restaurant though.
Waitress was great!
Quick and fast service and food was good and yummy
Food and service was quite good. Disappointed that there were no gluten free options.
Would recommend this restaurant for brunch on Sunday.
Nice location with good vibe. Service was slow because there were not enough waiters and it took forever to be able to order anything (or to get the bill). Food and drinks are good, but not amazing
Not impressed and food presentation was just ok. Server took forever to get our drinks
It was very very loud hard to have a conversation our waitress was lovely
Upon arrival to our reservation we were seated at a table that was extremely dirty and we kindly requested for it to be wiped down. The host didn’t hesitate and apologized.
We all ordered sandwiches that were served using the sourdough bread; however all the guests felt the bread was not fresh that day.
Hello Melissa, Thank you for your review, we are always looking to make our guest's experience at the Fox better. We would like to apologize for the table, that should not be an experience for a guest to walk into. As of yesterday, we are using a new type of sourdough bread. We humbly apologize for your bread being stale, and would like to invite you to come in and try our new menu. Sincerely, Allison. Fox on John team.
We loved the ambience, we were sitter in the dinning room and felt like we were at home.
It was decent.
Waitress was average at best. Table was dirty. I had the beef melt sandwich. The meat was beyond over cooked. Dry like paper. Awful. My companion had the Cubano which he said was not good and did not finish. He had been here before and liked it. Either we got the wrong chef or it has changed. I will not go back.
Nice view, great service and good food. Really expensive though - not good for struggling university students lol
Great patio to enjoy drinks with friends
I celebrated a birthday at Fox on John and I couldn't be more impressed with how the staff were so accommodating of my requests (I brought a birthday cake). The food was delicious and the staff were all so attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant!
