LOVE this place . The food is so delicious and the presentation just beautiful. Plenty of options on the menu to choose from. I have never been disappointed with any meal, drink or desert at Fresh.

Excellent food but they ran out of items we wanted to order. That was a bit disappointing. Service was fantastic so we’ll definitely be back again!

Food was excellent (fresh, great flavours, great presentation) and great quality. Our food came cold as it was sitting on the counter for so long. It was an early Saturday evening and just starting the fill up but the waitress seemed too busy to take good care of her tables. Such a pity since we would have easily given them a 5 stars but the service was lacking.

We have been to this Fresh location once or twice before, and go there because we live north of the city, so it is the closest. The noise level was a bit much, even though the restaurant was perhaps 2/3 occupied. Hard to carry on a conversation among 5 of us. Our food took longer than expected to arrive, and then was not at the proper temperature. My son sent back his stew, the rest of us were probably too hungry at that point. My Beyond burger seemed a bit undercooked (and lukewarm). Everyone felt the food they ordered was flavourful, so there's that. Our server was friendly and helpful, as one would expect.

My recommendation for those who enjoy vegan food is to try the other locations, such as Queen Street.

First date on valentines. Great venue, only issue was our table was in the most awkward area, beside the till in the back. Was uncomfortable to get in and out

We had a group of 10 ppl to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. It was nice they could accommodate our large group however we had brought a cake which the restaurant would not allow us to serve. We ended up going to another restaurant afterwards, so we could cut the cake (quite the inconvinience.) Also they wouldn't let us split the bill into 5 and made us do the math with 1 bill. We all calculated what we had and paid, they automatically charged 18% gratuity. We were told there was still over $100 owing, not sure how all of us could have made that error, sounds kind of sketchy to me and that could have been avoided had they allowed us to have our own bills.

It was great, the food was absolutely fantastic, even my grandma who was super sceptic about vegan food at first lobed it. The noise level was quite high though, but that was expected I suppose

I made an on-line reservation earlier in the day and when we arrived we were told that they were down staff in the kitchen and that it would take one hour for food. We decided to stay anyways. It took some time to be waited on....the manager served us and was very pleasant, comped us drinks and dessert which was very nice. The food that evening was not good, it was quite poor actually ....not tasty, overly saucy, very small portion of add-on tofu....not typical for Fresh. The salad we ordered was not like usual. We were hungry and ate quite a bit yet we did not enjoy the food. We won’t be returning to this location for some time.

Our waitress made a mistake and ordered regular fries instead of sweet potato fries for my mothers order. My aunt's salad did not come with the salad dressing so we needed to ask to have these mistakes fixed. I also forgot my takeout leftovers and went back in to get it approximately 5-8 minutes later and it was already thrown in the garbage. I think that it must be a common thing that people forget to grab their leftovers and come back in to get them no? At least a 15 minute leeway would have been nice. Quite disappointed as we all tipped very well considering and there were issues. Not very impressed.

I usually always order the same thing (a powerhouse grain bowl) but was determined to broaden my horizons. My friend and I shared the chickpea coconut curry and the fried cauliflower bites. They were both so yummy! I'm so glad I tried them!

I took one of my friends here for the first time and she absolutely loved it (as did I)! The servers were lovely, and the food and beverages were off-the-charts delicious. And those onion rings...

Brought 8 meat eaters. Most had the Beyond burger and liked it.
One guy ordered the tacos and was disappointed by the tortillas.
My guys enjoyed the broccoli app.
I enjoyed my burger, though the pricing is kinda nuts. Too small amount of side for $20.
The sauce which came with the cauli wings was excellent.
The waitresses handled the individual bills very profesionally.
I don't usualy get to eat actual food when we go out, and I think the boys were good eating the vegan food. Thank you guys.

The service was amazing and the staff was friendly, attentive, and very conscientious of what was in stock and what was a potential allergen for our party. We would definitely come back here again.

You took my favourite items off the menu - my salad was bland and my daughters bowl was all noodles and barely any of the veg/protein

Food quality has gone down in the last year and now feels Pricey for what you get.

I have been going to Fresh for years, its an old standby but this visit was severely underwhelming. The food was very lackluster and my friends bowl was missing most its veggies, the bowl was all rice. With all the locations this place has the quality has really dipped over the last number of years. Also the bowl and salad selection has only gotten slimmer in choice rather than bigger. I feel less and less the urge to go here anymore.

The service was extremely slow but staff warned us of the 30 - 45 min food wait. I believe the kitchen should be better equipped to serve customers on a Saturday night to meet the demands of the customer influx. food is always amazing!

Hi Jocelyn, I'm sorry to hear about the wait time - you're right, we're going to look into that to see what the issue was when you were in. We appreciate you letting us know. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal, however!

We were sitting inside the restaurant and
I did not at all appreciate the fruit flies flying around my table and the food. Those fruit flies were there when I first sat down to eat at that table, way before I ordered my food. One don’t appreciate food when one is shoo shoo-ing & fighting flies trying to get into it.
That is a sign that the table and seating area were not properly cleaned and sanitized.
Also, there was a lack of professionalism from servers eavesdropping on conversations and gossiping among the three of them about it (with another server sitting at a table on a raised platform on my right hand side who had her head lowered forward, pretending to be occupied. Her body’s non verbal communication was directed towards the only occupied table close to hers, my table). Just so you know, if you do not see me at Eglinton & Yonge anymore, what ignited that.
