I'm not a vegetarian. I ordered soup and a Cobb salad and both were excellent. I also ordered a Strawberry Smoothie.

The food and service were excellent. I will return.

Fresh has been consistently good since the day they opened in the late 1990s. So glad to see them expanding locations, and the newer locations aren’t as cramped as Bloor/Spadina or other older locations.

My only wish is I hope they offer lower fat dressing and sauces as their menu evolves. Whole Foods, Plant-Based, Oil-free would be greatly appreciated.

It was our first time visiting this fresh location. It is stunning! The service was amazing. The food seemed to be smaller servings than I remembered but just as tasty!

Unfortunately, they were packed and understaffed (like most establishments these days) so service was pretty bad and food took forever. But my rating is based on the food.

The dragon broccoli was inedible. The miso gravy on top of the over steamed broccoli, made the dish a pile of mushy textured greens. Buffalo Cauliflower was good, very big portion, almost too big. hummus just ok, the pita served with it was very very salty.

Moscow Mule delicious.

Great setting. The other Fresh restaurants I've been too are way too loud. I have not been in a long time but was coming in to the city for a performance saw this new location. Almost did not book because the loud atmosphere like Queen West, Bboor and Spadina was not what I was looking for pleasantly surprised by thos one. Thank you.

The food is consistently excellent. We had salads, a stew and a soup. The sparkling lemonade was expensive, but very refreshing. The decor is lovely and new. The service is always good, as well. The only disappointment was the lack of cornbread, one of the best sides on offer.

Server was unfamiliar with how to describe food except to tell us what her favourites were. Cocktails arrived after our appetizers and only after we followed up. Good thing the food was good and nicely presented. Would give this another try to confirm the experience or change my rating.

Staff need more training. Server was pleasant but very clearly did not want to be there. Server and who seemed to be the manager, didnt know food ingredients for allergies or alcohol serving rights/rules (ie. Re-corking wine). Apps took at least 30 mins and the broccoli was overcooked /mushy. Hot sauce and quinoa onion rings were delicious as always.

Restaurant can be chilly, the restaurant doesn’t have control of temperature but it was very cold to be in the dining space. Washrooms were filthy. Service was good and food was even better.

Always one of my go to restaurants when downtown. Food is excellent! Wait staff were a little meh… but I’m finding that with a lot of restaurants these days since COVID hit.

Absolutely delightful food and service.
The only slight criticism I have is that the table arrangements weren’t particularly nice. The booths looked nice but we were on a centre table and that felt a little like a school dining hall. Some screens or a simple rearrangement would improve the ambience. Otherwise it was excellent and we’ll definitely return

This is my favourite Fresh restaurant. The decor, location, food and service is always exceptional. This was also my first time sitting inside since Covid-19 began. I felt safe. They have a number of protocols in place internally and it made for a wonderful experience. Arrive a few minutes early if you have a reservation so you can get your QR code checked and get signed in. It's a streamlined process, but still takes a minute or so, which matters when there's a lineup. Also, make a reservation in advance. I did, and that made it smoother.

Food order came out wrong. All guests meals did not arrive at the table at the same time so one of our four guests ended up eating alone. Took almost 30 min for a beyond burger, and it still came out wrong. Server was inattentive and appeared to forget we were there. Restaurant was cold and ambience was lacking. Not a great experience and won’t be returning. Disappointing to say the least as this place is expensive.

The cauliflower tacos were mainly cabbage. Sweet potato fries were mushy. My husband's club house wrap was good. Overall, I was quite disappointed with our meal. It was a year and a half (because of Covid and living out of town) since our last visit and it was definitely poorer quality.

It was the first time we went back to Fresh post-COVID. It was a Sunday at 11:30, and we were disappointed not to find any brunch or breakfast thing on the menu. We used to enjoy so much brunching at Fresh. We were the very first customers to enter the restaurant that morning, and we ordered a soup, burger, fries, carrot cake and coffee for my husband, and a Protein bowl and a smoothie for myself. The soup and the cake were very good, but the burger was made with sliced bread that was somewhat dry, and the fries were just lukewarm and looked old (!) My bowl was bland, not salted enough, some items cold like the beans which I did not appreciate, and with tofu steaks that barely tasted of anything, leaving me thinking that the bowls with tofu steaks I make at home were much better than this one. We had been welcomed by a nice girl, but then were served by two others, who seemed to barge at us with the plates, announcing them to give them each to the right person, leaving me with two sauces, one beige one, probably tahini sauce, and one with chili oil I believe. I could not remember exactly what the sauces contained, and the girls being gone in a flash, I used them as I guessed would be right, only to realize that my bowl was too oily. So, given that this restaurant on Front street had been announced as a scale-up Fresh restaurant, our experience was disappointing. It is sad because Fresh used to be our favorite restaurant in Toronto and we used to rave about it.

Great service Felt safe. Checked vaccine status. Tables well distanced.
The only caveat was that what I ordered - my usual bowl was not as tasty as usual.

I'd visited this place for the very first time. I just loved the vibe, food and sitting area. Staff is so humble and they make you feel like you're sitting at home. I sat outside with my family on the outdoor. This place is so astonishing.
