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 ...

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.

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.

Our waiter Alexander was wonderful. He was attentive to us and really made us feel that he was interested in his job and happy to be serving. he was great. The food was excellent and the only qualms i had were that i was too full to enjoy space for dessert. I love the amount of choices in the menu for vegans. Although i am not one, it was just wonderful to be able to have so much selection. i must go back to try the others that i saw coming out of the kitchen. thank you for a great lunch. Catherine

Good food, but came out cold. Server happy to replace the meals quickly but after waiting 30 minutes cold fries are not what you expect. We stick with wraps, burgers and tacos as the buddha bowls have progessivley gotten more expensive and smaller protein portions.

The only issue was that we were not given the option of separate bills. We had 6 people at our table but it was not easy to divide up the bill and became awkward.

The food and service were perfect - except for one thing. We reserved a table in advance and were given a location that was in the middle of the action - we were bumped by staff or guests dozens of times. No single person's fault - simply too many tables in the middle section of the facility.

The tangle thai salad is the best. Fresh crunchie delicious. One feels very full after without the feeling of having eaten too much as it is only low carb veggies.

I have the cookbook and convinces my family to go but the food at the restaurant was disappointing. Vegetarian food can be absolutely delicious but, other than the crunchy cauliflower tacos (and very strong onions in the Buddha bowl) the soup/dishes didn’t have a great deal of flavour. Based on the cookbook I’d guess originally Fresh was very good, but things have declined. The food was fast and not expensive, the environment is very basic and noisy so we’d consider it the equivalent of a vegetarian McDonalds. There are many better vegetarian options in our view.

I rarely eat at vegan restaurants, but that will soon change! Fresh was delightful - the food was tasty and delicious. The menu had an outstanding variety of food and I was torn as to what to eat. I ended up with the falafel tacos and wasn't disappointed. Service was friendly and speedy. I can't wait to go back to try one of their burgers.

Thai tangle salad was large, fresh and delicious. My son loved the black bean burrito. It was huge! Sweet potato fries are a bit mushy and way too salty. The server was pleasant but a bit too in your face, checking if everything okay at annoying times. The place is definitely loud and cramped so if you want a calm intimate atmosphere this is the wrong place.
