    We always find that whatever we choose is very tasty, appetizingly presented and super-nutritious! Perfect whether we want to share, snack or have a filling meal.

    Gorgeous venue, extensive menu and delicious. Beverages are a bit over-priced. Also agreed with server and confirmed repeatedly to put all beverages on my bill ahead of time but when the bill was rung up this was not done, was a bit disappointed by that.

    Went to my favourite restaurant for New Year’s Eve - was excited and was riding the train there from up North. Made reservations for 8:15pm a few days beforehand. Then got a ca an hour before reservation to say they were closing at 9pm. Hadn’t seen this anywhere whilst making reservations days before. Since I was taking a one hour train that ran once an hour, I wasn’t able to arrive much earlier. However I did manage to arrive at 8pm. But we waited 15 min before getting any kind of service (and the place wasn’t very busy). Once we ordered our drinks it took another 15min for them to arrive and for a good order to be taken. Our food arrived around 8:50 and the rice in my bowl was cold and hard. Since the kitchen closed at 9pm there wasn’t much they could do about it. Still cost me $20 for the bowl. We got asked to leave soon after. Would have loved this to be a yearly tradition but not sure it will be a repeat.

    The restaurant is very clean, the food is delicious—three of us enjoyed three different meals and had one to go and they were all delicious! Thomas looked after us, he was really cheerful and friendly, helpful and efficient! All of the staff was great, very welcoming and friendly. Overall it was a great experience, we will go back for sure!

    Lovely place. It took a while til we were seated. We had reservations for four which was a good thing. They were busy. The place looks fresh like the food. We all enjoyed our meals. There could have been more fries added to our burger order.

    Abundant choices for those of us who do not eat meat, whether white, red, or pink. So nice to have a menu where there are lots of appealing choices instead of the more common menu where one has to search for the meatless options and where such options can often be uninspired. Service was very good, from walking in the door to paying the check.

    My first experience with a vegan restaurant and will not be my last! Food is tasty, portions are very generous, ambiance is super trendy, and the staff was extremely pleasant. Highly recommend getting tasting plates to have the full experience- onion rings are the best I've had. The Buffalo cauliflower, although lacking the buffalo sauce, is again one of the best I've ever had! I will come back to try more. :-)

    big fan of the BBQ burger fries/miso...sadly the bun was stale and fries appear to be frozen kind not the delish ones I'm accustomed to getting there...we were off to the game so i didn't have time to send back ...generally satisfied but hope they can correct this in future

    Cute place but the food could have had more flavour. I am vegan and will always go back for the ambiance, wonderful staff and great value! Just my two cents on making the food more "WOW!" instead of "pretty good".

    I’ve been to Fresh several times, but my recent experience was subpar. I ordered the goddess bowl and basically ended up eating a bowl if soba noodles. There was hardly anything else in it. A few pieces of broccoli and a little bit of kale and 3 pieces of tofu. It lacked taste. Fresh used to be my go to place when meeting friends for dinner. Don’t think I’ll be going again.

    It's been a few years since I've been. The food was okay,. My memory of the Quinoa onion rings was then they were well coated. These were mostly bare onions with a little crispiness. I've also made them from the cookbook several times and they should be more thoroughly coated. Also, used to be accompanied by a dip. I had the Caesar...it was a good size, but a quite heavy on the dressing and very light on the tempeh bacon. Ginger tea after was very good. The ambience was great as was the service.

    It's a perfect setting for a date! The ambiance was comforting, and the food was fresh and flavourful. We ordered the Beach bowl with soba noodles and the immune booster hot drink. The immune booster is decadent with the sweetness of the banana and dates. I highly recommended it.

    A great place for plant-based food fan. All the staffs are friendly and helpful. You see them walk by frequently enough to help out if you need, by not approaching closely so you can still feel comfortable eating. The decorations is beautiful, modern and dreamy. The food is tasty, but most dishes have pickle so if you are not a friend of pickle or sour taste, ask for a recommendation or modification to tone it down. Overall, an enjoyable experience
