Nice outdoor patio that the other Fresh locations don’t have but the same health conscious food and drinks on the menu that you can expect.

The patio is nice but the tables are too close to each other so it's a bit uncomfortable and other diners are too close. You can barely get in and out of the booth without bumping into someone. The food is under seasoned for my liking. While the servings are large, the prices are very high, especially for cocktails. Nice place to go once in a while, but not frequently.

Great service. Great patio and atmosphere. Could use some more fat free items on the menu - really very little, almost nothing to choose from in that category. Great waitress

The vegan burger was fantastic. I am a big fan of beef burgers and this was just as good. The roasted cauliflower appetizer was also really good. Fresh is a great place for a laid back, casual dinner with a small group. We sat on the patio and really enjoyed the evening. No complaints.

Fresh is great, great place to eat for vegans and non vegans alike. This location was okay though. Ran out of bacon and feta. The nachos is my new favourite but when we had ordered there was hair found multiple times. We told our server, and the restaurant was nice enough to remove that app from our bill. So there’s that. Overall, a good night, plus wine Wednesday’s!

The food was incredible. I’ve had the cookbooks for years and this was my first experience eating at the restaurant. The ingredients were fresh, delicious, and good quality. Loved the beyond burger and the urban detox juice. Our Australian server was very absentminded and didn’t come around to check on us at all - no water, and didn’t come to check that she had given me the wrong salad- so I ate (and enjoyed) it anyway. The food exceeded my expectations, I just wish the service had come anywhere close.

Apparently a new menu had just come out so it was causing a backlog in the kitchen. There were also certain dishes not available. We were told it would be a wait for our food. But after a really long time we should at least be offered some shareables or something without having to be asked. They did comp our drinks which was nice. Overall it was a nice venue to enjoy, we liked our food & I would like to try it again later to compare it with this experience.

I always enjoy the food. It is fresh and super healthy... and is plated nicely and in a colorful manner. Your menu has a good variety of healthy and delicious items to enjoy. I am 66 yrs. old and am trying to eat a healthy diet... so I always enjoy coming in to try something new.

My overall experience at the Fresh Queen St. West location was overall outstanding.The food was amazing. I reccomend having the quinoa onion rings with your choice of dipping sauce and the clubhouse wrap. Their smoothies are also fresh and delicious. I was also impressed at the service, with our server being accomodating and extremely friendly.

I love fresh and have gone to all the locations through out toronto many times, but this time was my first time eating in at the one on crawford. I understand that it was vday, but we waited 40 min for our food and the server did not come in and let us know it was running late or check in once. We also noted the date as a birthday and there was no acknowledgement of that. Love the restaurant but wouldn’t recommend this location.

The restaurant itself is lovely. The cocktail I ordered was delicious. I was a bit disappointed in the food this particular evening. The food was cold, including the fries. On other occasions food has been better.

We went for brunch. The tofu scramble was tasty, but salty. Then home fries were a disappointment. They had no seasoning and appeared to have been made with frozen home fries. The bread/toast was nice, but it was dry and we had to ask for jam. The service at other tables seemed okay, but our server was not attentive.

Pretty long wait times considering no one was really there. A lot of tables were empty - which was kind of a bummer since it was Saturday evening. Server was nice but main food items seemed to take too long. I wouldn't blame our server for that though. They were good!

I always like the food at Fresh and the quality was as expected. But that wait on the patio wasn't really great. I might come back to this location, but others seem better from past experience.

Fresh has consistently delicious high quality food. Non vegans will enjoy their burgers too because they are that good! They also offer beer wine and cider and have a nice patio. My go to spot

Fresh on Crawford is always my number one choice when it comes to special evenings out. The food is so tasty and so creative that I can't think of another restaurant that comes close to this. Sitting on the patio is lovely but a bit noisier this time. My only problem is choosing and entree out of the many Fantastic items on the menu.

Fresh never disappoints which is why it is one of my all-time favourite restaurants. The menu has a variety of delicious, healthy options to choose from and they even have a separate menu that highlights the gluten-free options for my celiac friends. I especially love this location for the patio - covered and heated in winter and open in summer. Despite the delicious entrees, make sure you save room for a Bunners donut for dessert!

Quiet birthday dinner at Fresh on Crawford with my wife and daughter. Open Table reservation gave us a well located table on the patio with a view of the sidewalk action on a warm summer evening. Wide array of flavourful menu options from drinks to dessert made for a memorable evening.

I recently visited Fresh on Crawford since a friend had recommended it to me and I was very impressed by both the service (our waitress was exceptional) as well as the food. Their menu featured many vegan classics as well as a vegan spin on popular foods such as poutine, burgers, tacos, etc. My family ordered the cornbread and green poutine to share for apps and we adored the green poutine! The mushroom gravy was outstanding and the "cheese" taste amazing (which is not always the case with vegan cheese). Our main meals were also delicious as well as dessert, lattes, and milkshakes. I would recommend this spot to everyone - 10/10!

We are not vegetarians but were pleasantly surprised over how satisfying the food was despite being entirely plant based. The tacos were flavorful albeit difficult to eat because they were so overstuffed. The onion ring appetizer was very good (and the rings were HUGE--could have worn them as bracelets!), as was the garlic dressing on the side. Our main complaint is that occasionally we would smell a sewer smell wafting over the patio from the street. Not the restaurant's fault, but it did affect our dining experience. Nevertheless, I would still recommend this restaurant, but perhaps try to attend on "favorable wind days" or with indoor seating!
