    The service has room a lot of room for improvement. We ordered a bottle of wine and we were brought a glass of wine. The shareables came with no service spoons and forks so we had to go to the kitchen counter and ask for them. The food quality and taste definitely saved the day.

    I love Fresh and have been to several locations. It was my first time at the Front Street location. It didn't disappoint food-wise except it was a bit difficult to get the server's attention to order more wine. They were busy but not close to full and walked passed us a bunch of times empty-handed. We had to flag them down twice to get our wine.

    We love the food at Fresh. It's so nice to go for dinner and have healthy options. The service is consistently bad. They are always like 2-3 short it seems. No one ever checks on you mid meal, you rarely get water/refills, and the staff seem like they are train to be apathetic.

    Food and service at this Fresh location always dependably good. A great place for vegans to know we can find a thoroughly nourishing meal that's nicely presented and is tasty. Great variety of dips, dressings and side options make for great flexibility.

    While the serving staff was pleasant, they were very slow, missed details, forgot items and overall led to a frustrating experience. Fresh on Front has a good opportunity - good food, nice ambiance, etc., to scale the offering through improvement training for serving staff.

    My friends and I had a very good time at Fresh. Although we had been there before, we all decided to try a Fresh burger for the first time. The house grain burgers and toppings were delicious, however we all felt that the delicious burgers and toppings were overwhelmed by the huge, not very tasty white bread buns. We strongly recommend Fresh use thinner, tastier, healthier bread to go with their burgers. The ambience and service were wonderful as always!

    The server was wonderful adding extra ginger to the fireball hot drink. Very attentive while giving us space. The only adjustment was needing to use my light on my iphone to see the dark sections of the menu at 6 pm as the lighting at our two person table in the main room was not adequate at that time of day.

    Originally had a reservation for 5 people but 2 extra people showed up. The server was very accommodating in getting us to a bigger table for everyone. Lots of options to choose from, all the food was very tasty and came out relatively quickly. Reasonably priced as well. The restaurant was very clean and the washrooms were well maintained.

Billie recommended the Peanut Butter Brownie as a birthday treat and my Auntie loved it! AND, Billie and Gage comped the Brownie! Totally unexpected and extremely thoughtful. We will be back! I appreciate your Awesomeness! Have an excellent Holiday and Happy New Year!

    a big meh. service was slow (they were slammed) and the server had a bit of an attitude (probably b/c they were running back and forth to put in orders). Food came out fast, but was meh at best.

    We arrived on time for our reso at 6:45 and ordered promptly, saying to our lovely server to advise us if we were ordering anything that took too long as we wanted to be out the door in an hour for the theatre. The food came so late and she apologized, but we couldn’t finish it and had to gobble it without the pleasure it deserves. We saw almost everyone in the place heading out for 8 pm theatre. Are you understaffed or not planning for the theatre crowd ?

    Really disappointed in the service. We were attending a show at Meridian Hall after dinner and were almost late due to negligent service, despite starting dining more than 2h before the show started. The server forgot my meal and did not check up on us throughout.

    A couple of people ordered the cauliflower tacos and indicated that seasoning on the cauliflower would make it taste better but overall good. We were slow to order but service after that could have been a little faster. Service staff was pleasant. Others were satisfied with their meals.

    We have visited this Fresh location many times before. We love the food and the ambiance, however on this day, the service was very slow. Our thoughts were that they must have been understaffed, but we shouldn’t have had to wait 45 minutes for just our drinks before our meal. Overall though, it was a good experience, and we would return.

    First time there, service was great, I took the recommendation of the staff for our appetizer and main course. The onion rings were spectacular and the goddess bowl with the noddles was solid as well. I opted for their hot sauce and it was the right heat for my tastes, not too hot, but very flavourful. Overall a very positive experience and great plant based option.
