Fresh on Bloor
I love Fresh and it has been a go-to for over a decade. I almost always order the same dish. This time we were sat at the back of the restaurant next to the service station and pass when there were plenty of tables empty closer to the front. Our server took a longer than usual time to even talk to us and the dish I ordered was so over cooked and bland I had a hard time finishing it. It was just so unsatisfactory. And the prices have gone up - which is expected of course - but when this is paired with a decrease in quality it makes it not worth it at all.
First time at a vegetarian restaurant. Had the cheeseburger and it had more taste than a lot of beef burgers that I have had. The smoothie was very good as well. Good service good price fun atmosphere. DP April 10 2019
Great restaurant but it gets busy after 5:30. One of my dish was undercooked and we had to return. But overall its been a pleasure and positive experience every time.
The service was friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious, as always.
The food took extremely long to come out but the quality was good.
Food quality has gone waaaay down since they sold to a chain company. One order of fries was cold, the other was the crispy end farts of the basket and tiny portion. Salad had a litteral drop of dressing on it and the portion is significantly smaller than before. There was something wrong with every single order at our table which was definitely not our experience in the past!
The food is fresh and always tasty but the cramped table set up means that your neighbor will invariably knock your water glasses with their jacket/purse/butt! The wait staff are rushed and can't reach the diner trapped along the wall should they have a question or need something. Nothing about the environment says "have another drink, sit back, try a dessert...we care about your whole experience...". I'd do take out or try another location. If you can score a booth it's a whole different ballgame.
Open Table did not pass on our request for a booth. This is the 2nd time that has happened
I found the food very plain and not well presented, considering the cost.
Great service, delicious food and quick considering how busy it was!
A great place for lots of delicious and healthy vegan / vegetarian and GF options. Service was lovely, knew the menu, and accommodated additional dietary needs. If you're going, definitely make a reservation. It's very busy, and seating is tight.
Love Fresh! My favourite vegan restaurant chain.
I love Fresh but one stick of tempeh in the baby green goddess bowl is pretty stingy.
Good food, great waiter, but a bit noisy and about 6’’ between you and the next table. But the food and service was so good I’ll look forward to going back. The Fresh on West Queen West seems to have a bit more room.
I always ask for a booth because of the noise level. I find the reservation OpenTable difficult to use with a request. You make the reservation and then have to go back to modify it to ask for a request. Sometimes more than once. This time I wasn’t successful as a booth was not available for us. Another time I will call to make a reservation not use OpenTable. I love Fresh!
Only issue I had was that the Entrees were taking up to 40 mins but we will advised of this when we came in, so no worries.
Fabulous food. So glad we had a reservation, it would have been a 45 minute wait otherwise. Place was packed! So nice to eat at a restaurant where a vegetarian or vegan can order anything on the menu!
Loved the food and the service was terrific! The on-line reservation process was effortless. Thanks
First date ... My date loved the restaurant and the food even more .. Thanks
The chocolate sundae is to die for. You cannot leave without trying it. One of the best in my life!!
Love this place.
Really good cauliflower bites, yum yum yum yum yum
pancakes and smoothies are a great option if you're soy free.
Great vegan options!
Fresh is always amazing. Haven't been in years and wasn't disappointed at all. Love ittt
Great! Little noisy, but never disappoints
Great food and service! Very loud/crowded — but it was a Friday night, + I made a reservation easily online and didn’t have to wait for a table
Really want to say that the noise level was not what I’d call energetic. It was very noisy.
Delicious food and great staff!
The food was very good; however, it was too loud to have a conversation. One must almost yell to be heard and lean over the table to listen. Very unfortunate ...
Loved my crispy cauliflower tacos, carrot cake, and the whole vibe. Additionally, it was very near to the Bata Museum.
Went for the first time. Was craving a burger and heard a lot about their onion rings. Scored on both! The rest of my family had been there before and recommended it. I was not disappointed and will go again. It would be cool, if they offered some samples of things that maybe a lot of people haven't tried, since it's a different type of restaurant.
But overall, I loved it.
We loved our time at Fresh. Good service, good food and a wonderful menu even for those of us who are not Vegetarian. My only suggestion would be more seating and accepting parties larger than six. It was a little cramped but I appreciated you accommodating us at the last minute as we were seven. You are a very busy place so maybe you need to expand! LOL! When we are downtown we always come to Fresh. A great value.
Fresh is the best most delicious vegan food.....period!!
Great food and very good selection. Something for everyone.
Once again, another great meal!!! If u are in Toronto, CN ad U looking for a great Vegetarian meal....This is the spot....
Great vegetarian/vegan food with a warm and social atmosphere to go along with it. I am especially impressed with how attentive the servers are to patrons each time I have visited (your water jug will never be empty). Highly recommend the tiger or Buddha bowls. We tried the Buffalo cauliflower last visit as well and were not disappointed.
Not a veggie but thought I would give this place a second chance. The first time we ate there I had their own "banquet" burger which was actually pretty good, but we were in rush to get to a concert, so I couldnt really enjoy the meal, This time there was a special burger (like a Bic Mac, said the server) so i tried it but it was drier than the first one. When I mentioned it the server said it was an outside company providing the burger - this should have been made clear, especially in this place where they pride themselves on their own burgers. As well, I didn't want alcohol so i tried the Grapefruit Spritzer which was to made with PINK grapefruit juice which is sweeter than regular grapefruit. The drink arrived and was not pink. I asked about it, and the server said that "Oh they make it with whatever they have." That would be fine if the menu stated that, The drink was quite tasteless.
The two-seater we were in was cramped, and we are not big people.
The total bill was about $100 (with no dessert and one alcoholic drink).
Not the best value in my view.
It’s a little dirty and ambience is kindergarten like. The waiters are rough and bang into people and things. When bringing water they let the water dripping from the bottom of the jar get into my coffee I was drinking. A little disgusting- so the staff are lacking sensitivity and attention to detail. The food was healthy though.
