    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.

    Recommendations by our server were great. Portion sizes were larger than expected, had the soup & salad and could not eat all of it. Will go again next time we're in the area.

    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

    I loved Fresh before the pandemic but since then they can never get the Buffalo wrap done as promised i.e. replace the hot sauce with BBQ. This has happened at least 3 times with take out - the sauce is either not swapped or a spicy sauce is applied. Last night we explained that we can’t do spicy and a spicy bbq sauce was used. The other disappointment was how small the fresh bowl size small is, it looked child size. I usually can’t finished the regular size and opted for the small, thinking the portion would at least be adult size. I don’t remember it being so small.
