Vegetarian / Vegan
Since 1999, FRESH RESTAURANTS have been challenging the stereotype that vegan or vegetarian food is bland and boring. Our main goal each day is to provide freshly made food and juice as quickly as possible, without compromising on quality or service. We cater to all people, whether vegetarian, vegan or altogether new to this kind of eating, providing items everyone can relate to. Check out our menu for yourself, we're sure you'll find something you like, whether you're a dedicated vegan, or have never had a vegetarian meal in your life.
We make our food from scratch with wholesome natural ingredients, so you never have to worry about hidden chemicals or preservatives. Our food is being prepared in our kitchens almost all day, every day. It has to be, since we don't freeze anything, or keep it for longer than necessary. We make it and serve it as soon as possible, day after day. We don't cook with butter, dairy, eggs, honey or any other hidden animal by-products.

Excellent food but this visit we were disappointed with our tacos - cooked falafel and squash were not hot like it was the last time we were there. It was more like a luke warm sandwich - I’m assuming they are supposed to be hot and served right away.

We've been to Fresh on Front on numerous occasions. The decor is the nicest of all the Fresh restaurants.
The food is always served fairly quickly and hot. We noticed on our last visit that the staff were wearing matching outfits which was a very nice surprise because prior to this we felt that the staff for the most part were not dressed appropriately.

I love your restaurant and was so excited to try your new location on Front. I told bunch of my friends and we decided to celebrate her birthday. The vent was blowing cold air directly to us. we all had our jackets on. Our server was MIA most of the time, we couldn't really order more drinks.... He barely checked to see if we needed anything. We asked some other server to bring us more waiter and more drinks. To bad cause we wanted to try more stuff on the menu but we were frustrated with our sever. I will defiantly be back there despite the horrible service.

We've been here before and always enjoyed it. This unfortunately was not our favorite experience. Our order got mixed up a few times, and the restaurant was uncomfortably cold (even with our jackets on).

A colleague and I enjoyed a nice lunch at this downtown eatery. We both had a soup and salad combo. The soups (carrot soup and potato and pea soup) were excellent and each came with a side salad and a nice piece of cornbread. The only downside was that it took a long time to be served, which was surprising given that we were having soup and salad. But, we would both go back again and would recommend Fresh on Front to others.

The service at this location is crap. I’ve been here three times now. You’d think I’d learn my lesson.
Also, the tables are WAY too close together. I was hoping they’d make this location different in that respect.

I was going to the Ariana Grande concert that evening so I decided to take my friend their for dinner. It was her first time going to Fresh and she enjoyed it. She got the beyond cheeseburger which I also got and recommended and we both enjoyed it. It was also wine Wednesday so our waiter suggested a nice pinot grigio white wine and we loved it. Our waiter was so attentive and she gave us recommendation on dessert. I honestly love fresh on front and the interior is nice. I will definitely be back there again for some food and they must keep the cheeseburger beyond burger for a long time!

The food, service and ambiance were excellent. The noise from music was very loud at lunch then turned down. Keep it low and unintrusive. The expresso was average. Should be more choice, such a drip. Overall 8/10.

My girlfriend suggested this place as she is Vegan and had come before I was sceptical but when we tried the quinoa onion rings and breaded cauliflower I was pleasantly surprised I also had the falafel salad , which was one of the best falafels I ever had I asked for a side of avocado which was a little pricey for the few pieces I got but still yummy. The wine was half price on weds so that was a bonus Our server was very knowledgeable and fun I will definitely return

You can always count on Fresh for yummy vegetarian delights. Sitting near the kitchen is quite noisy though. I prefer a table near the front.

My friend found a short hair at the bottom of her Buddha bowl. The manager came by to apologize and told her they’ll prepare a new one for her right away and they wound remove it from her bill. 20+ minutes passed by and no one came by so we called the waiter. He waiter said he’ll call the manager again b/c he wasn’t aware of the new order. They obviously didn’t communicate with e/o about an issue which should have been a major concern - finding HAIR in your food!!! The manager came by and apologized once again because he FORGOT to put in the order for her Buddha bowl. Then, when we were paying for our meal, the waiter incorrectly divided the miso fries b/w the bills. We didn’t ask him to correct it b/c we didn’t want to have to wait once again. After the receipt came out, he threw the paper to each person after they paid. Didn’t even say thank you!

Ambience was excellent, staff were efficient and friendly. The food menu was varied and our meals were fresh and tasty. My only suggestion would be to add more raw foods such as sprouts, fennel, radishes etc. Both my wife and I enjoyed our first experience at this restaurant.

Out of town family visiting. 6 of us. Booked ahead. Table far too small for 6 people, which interfered with an otherwise lovely gathering. Food was excellent. Server unaware. Slow service. Changed halfway through meal which was an improvement.

The Buddha Bowl has changed! Have not had it since 2012 and it's just....what was the point of that?? Sauce is sticky....onions are so roughly chopped....the peanuts are whole and have the skin on?? And I swear I only got 3 pieces of tofu. I didn't realize how much I was going to be charged for a baby bowl. But $14?! You'd think the bowl would be more memorable and not actually stuffed into a baby's bowl? Luckily, I had a side plate and was able to off-load some of the veg to be able to mix my bowl's contents. Too bad. Was super excited about Fresh again. Not going to be going back anytime soon.
