    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.

    We waited more than 1 hour to get out meals. Our server was rude and even sarcastic. The manager apologized and offered a discount, but the overall experience was very disappointing

    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.

    Food and decor of the place was amazing, server however was extremely rude and not enthusiastic at all. It made our evening a little sad/disappointing as we constantly felt judged and bothered by her.. I never write bad reviews, but this one of the worst guest experiences I have ever had and don't feel comfortable returning because of the server. :(

    quite disappointed i mentioned at the time of reservation that it was a birthday meet up and instead of being given a front window we were seated at the back... server was really sweet but seemed to disappear on us - and then took forever to order our food - get our food - and finally i just went and asked a server to let me pay so that we could speed things up.

    Buffalo cauliflower and quinoa onions rings are standard favourites. Salads are great. The rose latte was lovely. Ginger drink and lemonade so refreshing. Either would be awesome on a hot day. Very clean, beautifully prepared food.

    Great service overall except for one item. There were several pieces of mushy green lettuce pieces in my super combo salad. I asked for them to be removed and the salad returned to me. They brought a new salad but with none of the signature cucumbers pieces and green beans - just lettuce and sprouts. I didn’t bother mentioning this any further to the waiter but seemed pretty common sense.

    Great food. Great service. New owners are a black eye for the brand that makes long-term customers like me and my wife reconsider if we should keep going to Fresh in the future because we don't want to support animal agriculture with the profits from Fresh.

    Overall, I like fresh restaurants. But I do find that the food is somewhat overpriced for what you get. Especially when you see the ingredients, they are all pretty simple things. So that would be my only reservation about recommending fresh. But other than that, the food is tasty, service is great and the ambience is good. It was a little loud because the tables felt quite close together.
