The drinks were strong and the bartender was super knowledgeable and helpful with picking. The Buffalo cauliflower has my heart for sure. The dumplings were delicious as well! We split the 9 layer burrito and ended up bringing most of it home we were full after the two apps!

10/10 hospitality from the hostess, server, and bartender all around a great experience with amazing food. I'm so happy I had the opportunity to swing by fresh for my birthday weekend!

This remains to be one of my favorite go-to restaurants and I just can’t get enough of the Buffalo cauliflower. Wow. This night however, the busy Spadina Ave patio was loud and chilly. They had run out of propane for their heaters and of course indoor dining is still not allowed because of Covid. It appeared that they had purchased new heaters they just were not set up or filled for the Friday evening seating.
Great food but if you’re looking for ambiance, get take out or wait for indoor dining to resume.

The cauliflower tacos were very good, but the barbecue burger was disgusting. Apps were very good and drinks were good but the margarita was gross. Service was horrible.

I’d give them another chance but wouldn’t recommend.

Environment was very pretty though!

This was my first time at this location and I brought two friends who have never been to Fresh before and they absolutely loved it. We sat outside at a table on the "grass" (astroturf) it was a wonderful feeling.
Best vegan restaurant in town.

Food is delicious as always, though I can't help but notice the prices continue to increase quite a bit year after year. Service was pleasant and ok in general, but nothing special. The interior has been renovated since I was last at this location, however the patio may or may not have been. It looks tired, and the furniture is both tired and filthy. It could use a refresh and/or solid clean. Overall, it was as expected minus the tired patio.

Hi Natasha - while I'm glad to hear that your food was delicious, I'm sorry to hear that the service and the patio wasn't up to our regular standards. I've passed this message along to the management team so they can remedy this for the future.

Fresh has always been my go-to. With the newly renovated space, it is even more welcoming and enjoyable. The service was great, food was amazing.

The only downside is they have increased the pricing of their dishes over the last few years.

I would highly recommend this place.

Lovely space, they’ve redecorated and it’s gorgeous. The staff were all warm and hospitable, I felt very welcome. I feel that they’re doing an incredible job of social distancing and following city guidelines for reopening.
The noise level is still fairly loud because they use the juicer and blender quite frequently but that’s to be expected at Fresh.
Service is casual, no resetting of plates or cutlery, no wiping of tables between courses. That’s fine for a casual place though.
The food is delicious and fairly priced.

Second time here and again food was amazing and service outstanding. Only reason I gave lower score on ambience is because we sat in a different section. The tables for two are too close together and everyone struggles to get in and out without knocking everything over on the table beside making it uncomfortable and a little embarrassing. Also sunset blinds would be great!

Loved the Reno’s and food as usual. I miss the huge serving of big salad that I got to go and the old dressing (goddess) of years past. It’s not the same - too small and the Caesar dressing just tastes like hummus. I also miss the black bean burrito.
Very nice experience. Waitresses were very pleasant and efficient. Can’t wait to return. Open another in Aurora! Fresh would do very well up here.

I really love Fresh, but I wish it wasn’t so pricey... I’m trying to encourage my friends & family to eat more plant-based, but it’s hard to convince them when it costs more than a meal with meat at another restaurant. 😔
