Fresh on Spadina
Love the new design! Great service and food as always
I love bringing friends here! It’s honestly one of my favourite places in the city. I always get the sweet potato poutine 💗 I tried the rose & pistachio donut last time and it was the best donut I’ve ever had 💗
I love the atmosphere and food at Fresh (though, it is a louder restaurant!). However, the food does take quite some time to arrive. Today’s visit was especially slow during the lunch rush. I think there might have been a miscommunication, but it took an hour for a salad and smoothie bowl to arrive. The food was good in the end, though!
I LOVE Fresh! Plus with the new reno it's EVEN better! Beautiful atmosphere, exceptional food and great service. It's a vegan lovers dream! BONUS: non-vegans love it too!
I’ve been going to Fresh for over a decade - we sometimes visit a few times a week - and I’d say this was probably our only bad experience.
Our quinoa onion rings came out in minutes, but were dry and cold. They tasted like they had been made a few hours ago in preparation for a busy evening. We order these every time and they usually come out freshly fried and piping hot and crispy.
We’ve been having Beyond burgers at other restaurants, (for about $7.49), so we thought they’d be even tastier prepared at Fresh, (for $18). The burgers took over 30 mins to be served, (we were warned), but were barely warm when they came out. The buns tasted so stale, or perhaps freshly thawed, that they were crumbly and inedible - I took my burger out and ate it with a fork.
Very mediocre food for a normally delicious restaurant. Maybe they’re just working out kinks with the newly expanded size, but I definitely won’t be visiting this location again any time soon.
We were running late and they met us with kindness and patience! Our server smiled every time! It was Boyfriend’s First time and he loved it!
I was with a friend who is vegan and another friend who is not - I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was great! Our server was really friendly and helpful. We enjoyed her buffalo cauliflower and onion rings. The vegan in our group had the beyond burger and the two of us meat eaters had the Buddha bowl. Everything was great and we didn’t miss meat or dairy (in the dipping sauces). I just wish I had one of these near me!
Amazing! Had the Beyond burger and couldn’t tell the difference between it and meat.
Love the new look! The restaurant is beautiful. Great food and service as always.
All was good aside from the length of time we waited for food after ordering - about 40 or 45 minutes.
I’m not sure why Fresh let me make this reservation. They were closed for a private event.
I booked this a few days in advance to celebrate a colleagues birthday.
Could they not have notified me or adjusted the availability here? Really annoyed.
The newly renovated Fresh on Spadina looks absolutely amazing!! It's super gorgeous, feels so modern, and just lifts your mood when you walk in! As usual, the food is still the same at the same prices, and there is an endless list of options! Think whatever you're craving for (vegan style) and they probably have it and you hardly feel like you are eating a vegan meal. Absolutely delicious! Thank you Fresh!
I can always count on the food being fantastic but on this occasion, it took a long time to get our lunch. The restaurant was very busy and after 1:15 I had to leave my associate while he finished his meal as I had to head to a meeting.
Not a fan of the refurb guys sorry. I absolutely appreciate the new finishes, better flow/more space for staff and patrons, but the earthy neighbourhood feel is completely gone and has been replaced with a jarring, out-of-character, fine dining vibe. I looked forward to the quirkiness of Fresh. The changes won't keep me away, the food is still amazing, but not as enthusiastic about it anymore.
Disappointed by the service and lack of communication between staff and patrons. Food was still fantastic as always.
The tables are too close together so it's awkward to get in and out of your seat. I went on an evening that wasn't particularly busy but it felt really noisy because the tables are so close together. I couldn't hear my partner because of the compact noise level.
This is the best restaurant in the city and it never fails in delivering high quality service and product.
My favourite restaurant to hit up for dinner, brunch, or anything in between. Delicious food, every time!
Felt rushed through our meal because they wanted to turn over the table quickly.
Good vegetrian spot with an affordable and creative menu.
Delicious food, but very slow to get our food.
Great food and drink selection, but the ambiance isn't that great. Tables are super close together, and quite loud. So it's difficult to carry out a conversation without yelling across the table.
We felt welcomed. Food is always good. Service was personal.
My friend and I were less than pkeased. Fresh on Spadina used to be great. My friend's fries tasted like fish! The server said she heard that complaint before! I liked my Tikka Masala bowl but the portion - even for a baby size - was ridiculously small for the price. I get more at take-out.
Sorry to say, but we'll probably go someplace else next time. :(
The squash tacos are fabulous
Vegan Heaven ... just sooo many options and all Vegan and tasty! Not sure how they manage this many options with that quality and service! Will be back for sure!
The food was amazing! Te only thing to say is that the tables are too close together that is so difficult to enter or leave your table. The service was not amazing but since the food was outstanding I kind of forgot about that.
The Buffalo cauliflower and the onion rings were amazing! Also, the tikka masala bowl!
A Lovely place to eat a flavorful, healthy meal. So yummy !
The food and service here is excellent. The only downside is that the tables are very close together and it feels a little cramped. Otherwise, a great place to eat.
Buffalo cauliflower was hands down my favourite dish. Next to that was the poutine with greens. So yummy! The BBQ burger didn't "wow" me. Loved the onion rings that came on it but the patty itself wasn't over the top amazing. It was still good though. I'll be back for sure!
Very poor quality food. Soggy sweet potato fries and bland burger. Too expensive & much better options nearby
One of my fave places to eat every time I’m visiting Toronto.
Was a delicious dinner
My server was wonderful and she’s attended me one year before. 😍
Been there about 4 times have been satisfied every time.
Large menu and consistently delicious. Hard to make poor choices.🤤😋
Went for dinner on a Saturday night, had reservation and we were seated promptly.
Server was attentive, food was served quickly.
Very reasonably priced for such healthy choices.
Food quality was decent for the meals, however the desserts were a bit lacking. Peanut butter cookie was very peanutty but also dry. Carrot cake was nothing special.
Restaurant was crowded and noisy, which was fine for us, but might not be for others.
The food is worth going back for.
The meal size tikka masala consisted of a large full bowl of rice. The sauce was tasty but not enough given the enormous amount of rice. I requested more sauce, but the additional tiny bowl did nothing to help wash down the mediocre dry meal ... very disappointed. Will try another time and hope the next meal option fares better.
We always love Fresh. Every dish we've tried there is excellent. The strawberry swirl smoothie is so yummy.
We got here about 15 minutes before our reservation started, but we were still seated promptly. Our waitperson was very attentive. The menu was a little overwhelming, just because of its extensive list of options, but the staff was helpful in providing recommendations. We got the vegan poutine to start. My partner (who had just had authentic poutine earlier in the day) said it wasn't quite authentic, but it was very good, and I was happy as a vegetarian to be able to taste a version of Canada's classic dish. It also didn't seem to try to be an exact copy of the traditional version, so I wasn't disappointed in that sense. Our food was very good and served quickly despite the warning that it could take 30 minutes for entrees to come out. My only complaint about the night was that the tables were extremely close together. I had to half-hunch over our table to get in and out, and even then I was worried that I was going to knock something over on the table behind me.
