Food and service was amazing. Only issue was a glass with lipstick on it was at our table and the people beside was so loud we could hear anything we were saying. Drove all the way from Brampton for my sons birthday. Overall the evening was nice.

Excellent heated patio for the winter, perhaps even a bit too hot.

Great food as usual, same good menu as other Fresh locations (Bloor, Spadina)

We used to love Fresh. Returned after a few years. The service was extremely slow. It took almost an hour to get three main dishes. Very little communication or apology for the delayed meal. Server had a very dismissive attitude instead of being service focused. Almost tempted to leave without our meals. Food quality has also declined. Overall a poor experience. We will not return.

We were seated on the outside patio, which looks nice but has patchy distribution of heat. The feet area was freezing and will often get a gust of cold air.

We walked in with a reservation with the notice that the food was going to be 30 minutes delayed. We ordered our food right away since we had a toddler and would need to be home in two hours for sleep time. We then waited. Our appetizer came out in 30 minutes but the main meal took longer than an hour. We noticed that the kitchen was focused in completing the take out or uber orders. When we asked about the timing of our food, we were told in one minute, over and over again. When we expressed our disappointment, the waiter came by and dropped off the menu, and said order something on the house. I didn’t want to wait for more food to come, and shared that I had a toddler and if anything for him could come earlier. The waiter went to say it’ll be another minute for our food. I’ve asked why the focus was getting take out or uber orders first when I had made a reservation in advance, I was told that there is still 30 minute wait with take out food. I couldn’t believe that the take out and uber orders were being prioritized over orders in-house and our food took more than one hour.

We had received our mains after an hour and twenty minute. When the food start to come in, we were told that there are some ingredients missing in our mains, they had ran out of the ingredients and if we wanted a replacement of the ingredients.... in hopes of no more delays, we just said, anything is fine, but when we received the mains, everything was there. They seem to not have their things together. The fries were soggy and limping over the cup that it was served in, looks like it was old and just microwaved. We had to request for fresh fries, and they didn’t seem very happy to meet our request.

It wasn’t a good experience for my family. They don’t want to go back and if we do decide ever to try again, it’ll be take out only

Service, food were great!! Lots of options...I think the only negative I would say (hence the 4, should really be 4.5) are the heaters on the outside patio. It was nice in the beginning but it got way too hot! They did turn it off for few minutes (it was apparently on the lowest setting), so it was really nice for them to try to ensure everyone was comfortable. Regardless, I would 100% come back here, and yes, I do recommend it. I really enjoyed everything that we ordered (and I am EXTREMELY PICKY VEGAN!!) 😁 SATISFYING FOOD!!

Went for dinner here to catch up with a friend I haven’t seen in quite a while. We both love the vibe of Fresh and the food is always amazing. That being said, the service was definitely lacking. Our waiter was very obviously trying to rush us and was clearly inpatient when we asked for a few more minutes to decide what we wanted. Ultimately this did put a bit of a damper on an otherwise wonderful evening. Always enjoy the food and atmosphere of fresh.

Food and outdoor patio were great, however the inability to make simple modifications on food or drinks caused for the loss of some stars.

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.
