    Excellent quality of food and ingredients for veg/vegan folks. Would love to come here again. Little sad that Pizza was not served at this venue, despite, being mentioned on the menu. But, that's no issue as we ordered vegan tacos, fries, and nice drinks and they were FAB!

    Nice location with a lovely patio. Great service. Tasty food. A bit of disappointed as a few menu items were not available. But, it was not a showstopper.

    This was the worst service I’ve ever had. There were only about 3-4 tables of people in the entire restaurant, the rest was empty. Yet the service was horrendous. The staff were on their cell phones, chatting and dancing with each other rather than tending to the tables. We were not checked in on once by our server or any staff members. They seemed withdrawn and disinterested in being there. Will not be going back.

    It had some good and bad points- was a slow night for them and we had to wait 42mins for our waitress to look into why the food was talking so long. The good part was they comp a salad and fries while we waited on the food which came 5mins after she checked with the kitchen

    Beautiful restaurant. Our server was pleasant. Onion rings came out obviously burned-as an ex server those should have never been put out to the customer-(our server did not deliver them.)??After about an hour our entrees came out. Cauliflower tacos looked gorgeous but were too crunchy inside and the chunks were so huge I couldn’t bite into them without everything popping out, I ate it with a knife and fork. Lacking in flavour but the sauce was good. My mothers fries were also borderline burned? She really liked the buffalo chicken wrap. We had no time for dessert because of the long wait for entrees. Probably will not return to Fresh and kind of sad about that.

    We placed our order and received our drinks fairly quickly, but then sat for over 45 minutes waiting for our food to arrive. After looking around hopelessly at the waitress many times and the other staff, we finally stopped her and said we needed to get going if the food didn’t come soon. She went into the kitchen to check and came back and said our order had never gone through, and we’d need to wait at least another 15 minutes for it. The same exact thing happened to another table across from us, and another table that has to take their food to go right beforehand. The waitress apologized and asked us to pay for the drinks before we left… they should’ve comped our drinks or given us a gift certificate or something, it was really ridiculous!

    The food was much less tasty than any of us remember from previous occasions. There was a lot of salt but not a lot of tangy flavour. It was as if certain sauces had been reworked.

    came here for lunch and my girlfriend mentioned her nut and shellfish allergy. we ordered the onion rings and were told of cross contamination and so nachos were ordered instead but we were not told about the cashews in the nachos and my girlfriend had an allergic reaction to which we are now in the hospital 2.5 hours later and will be here until 630 earliest. ruined our day and almost killed my gf. please have you staff learn the menu and be more cautious about allergies

    The wait was insanely long. It was a very special lunch for my family visiting Toronto, the wait took twice as long as the time it took to eat. The waiters had a lot of attitude as well. Food was amazing but definitely will not go back again for a special celebration.

    We appreciate Fresh for a number of reasons - incredible flavour and transparency and concern for dietary needs - but we were disappointed by the service and lack of attention to or even acknowledgement of the reservation notes (it was a birthday bite). With only 5 tables seated inside (our reso was early at 5:30pm), we were surprised that it took ~50 minutes for our bowls to make it to the table.

    The food took over 45 mins to arrive (we just ordered bowls) and when it did, one of the plates was incorrect (arrived with rice instead of soba). We then asked for a side of soba and after another 30 minutes, another entire bowl was provided instead of just a side. While we benefitted, we saw other tables get served before us and there was less than 10 people in the restaurant during the duration we were there. I am happy their takeout business is thriving, but as patrons dining in, I would hope to be prioritized.

    Overall it was fine, always a nice experience at Fresh but nothing I could tell you that particularly stood out as terrible nor as stellar. Food is always delicious (though prices can add up quickly with small items). The biggest tip I can give is that - the front patio is great for being out in the fresh air and sunshine but the location (Spadina and Richmond) is incredibly loud. We had about 4-5 ambulances pass by and a firetruck at some point. I also noticed that a group of food delivery cyclists seem to congregate right in front of the restaurant (their meeting spot, perhaps?) which seems like it isn't a big deal but added to the disruption of an already busy downtown street. And to cap things off, we had an unwell man screaming obscenities up and down the street for the latter part of our meal. All of this to say that I don't blame the restaurant, but can be quite the distraction throughout your dining experience!

    Food was very tasty and portions were worth it (we had starters, main and dessert). I was safe with my gluten and dairy allergies as they made sure to verify what had gluten with the kitchen 🙏🏻 The service was excellent! Our server Heath was fantastic💜 The patio seating was lovely! Cute and comfy ☺️ I’ll definitely be back there soon!

    The food would have been really good but they burnt something (I think the kale) and the whole dish just tasted bad because of it. Me and my mom both got the bowls (beach and tiger) and it was just not very good. I could tell if it wasn’t so burnt it would be good . Our waitress was super nice and the ambiance was great. The place is really interesting inside too.

    The cauliflower taco consisted of 3 giant raw cauliflowers, covered in batter, and deep fried, in a pita that was terribly small. Likely an overcompensation for utter lack of flavour. Everything was bland, dry, and disappointing.

    Probably the worst experience eating out in Toronto. We were celebrating a birthday with my best friend and had reservations to this resto. We waited 15 minutes to be seated, then another 25 before anyone came to take our drink orders. Once our food order was placed we waited at least an hour for our meals to arrive. Everyone who arrived after us had their food delivered already. When we enquired about the massive delay we were treated like we were annoying and we’re ghosted for the rest of the dinner. Our plates weren’t cleaned and the waiters ignored us. We had to go out of our way to get the bill. It was awkward and really embarrassing. The service was absolutely horrendous. Thanks for ruining a birthday dinner. Never again.
