    My order was messed up. I ordered two sides of steamed broccoli and steamed greens and received 2 steamed greens instead. I was at a work lunch so it was awkward to point this out and had to chew on two identical sides. The service was not attentive to our table. I had to wave in big sweeps for someone to see that we needed something. The food was very average. I had higher expectations from a vegan restaurant. Flavour was lacking. I ordered an Americano and it was very bitter and served room temperature. At the onset when we walked in and let the individual know that we had a reservation, there seemed to be some confusion if we had reserved for 2 or more people. Likely won't be returning here again.

    Most of the food was really good! The cauliflower tacos were a little bit dry, but I think that's probably due to the fact that there wasn't enough sauce in the tacos itself! The rest was amazing!

    I used to champion this brand, but I will probably rethink this moving forward. Food quality has drastically reduced, and seating options are less than stellar. We were put in the back even though there was ample room in the general space. Disappointed.

    Fresh has amazing ingredients and the food is impossible to recreate at home. I love that they offer you alternatives and let you go on a vegan journey through their menu. So much selection and options.

    Service and food were great but our meals took a long time. It seems like the Fresh on Front take mobile orders as a priority over sitting patrons as take out orders seemed to be moving quickly while we waited for missing tofu that never arrived. Our server was great as they gave us desert on the house but the slow indoor dining experience seems to be a common occurrence.

    Staff very friendly, out of the choice of beer ordered, no cake available to order and what we did they fell short again on a flavour. It was my first time there but it is one of my son's favourite restaurant. Open Table asked the occasion, why I don't know, they never mentioned his birthday. Restaurant clean and presentable.

    I have been a costumer of fresh for over ten years. Last nights meal was the worst I have ever had. The soup was watered down and served cold. The portions of the salad were miniscule. I left the place with an empty stomach and a sour taste in my mouth.
