    The vibe at Grounded is unique. From the décor to the service to the curated menu, it's all good. They make real food in their kitchen. There are options for GF and vegan diners. You can hang out during the day and work on your screenplay as you sip a premium coffee drink, or you can dress up and have a classy dinner with your fiancé. Did I mention the demon bear wall art?

    Great and delicious BBQ food! And the service was really good, and our waiter was very attentive. Really enjoyed how fresh was the food. We will definitely be coming back! It's important to support local restaurants after two years of a global pandemic that have negatively affected many businesses and restaurants.

    I’m impress how they called Thai beef to a very small portion of ground beef with too much salt and a couple of pieces of peppers. The food was not bad but definitely not Thai. The burger and ribs was just ok, the only thing it was outstanding was the brisket. The portions were small. But the service and ambiance was amazing.

    Elevated BBQ fare without a compromise in portion size or big flavour, Grounded Kitchen was an absolute delight. We arrived at Grounded Kitchen as a party of three for a birthday and were greeted by humble and accommodating hosts. Our party had some dietary restrictions which were handled with grace, curiosity, an open mind &amp; ease. Loved the ambience; wicked art! Service was stellar, no excessive lingering, and on the flip side, no dry glasses. Highly recommend, no fluff all flavour, will need to go back to try the various expresso drinks!!

    First visit to Grounded. The owner Amir and his team were all excellent and welcoming. They were perfect too at accommodating two individuals in our party who were celiac and vegan but also had delicious foods for those who weren't. Place was clean, trendy and the service was great ! We will most definitely return and also recommend. THANK YOU Grounded for a perfect night !!

    The service was quick, efficient, and quite friendly. The food was outstanding- ‘best perogies and jerk chicken I’ve ever had. The drinks were good and well-prepared. The atmosphere was welcoming. The prices were fair, given the quality of the food and drinks.

    Grounded KitchenResponded on May 5, 2022THANKS MICHAEL! I wanted to say thank you for the positive feedback. That Jerk Chicken is a favorite of mine too! To be given title "best ever had.." is a huge privilege. We'll be honoured to keep it up. With the evolution in the world of hospitality, digital reviews of excellence go a long way. Your 5 star comments will help us continue doing what we love AND will surely bring in more. The words of a customer have weight with other customers. Thank you again. Hope to see around again soon!

    Grounded KitchenResponded on May 5, 2022THANKS for the review. It's our pleasure to cook and serve the things we love. Our goal is to exceed expectations in all categories. I want to work to achieve that in all areas. I hope to see you back and get the chance to earn 5 outta 5 on all 5. Value is very important to all. You should feel the max of that here. The lack of 5 in food, ambiance and value will inspire us to keep reaching higher. The next time you're here, ask for me, (Amir) any of your feedback is a gift in making us better.

    Hidden gem of a restaurant. The BBQ pulled pork was amazing. Funky, with a hint of steam punk , retro years, old school however you want to describe it. Great staff, knowledgeable and practising good hygiene protocols. Worth seeking out and supporting this restaurant , it really is good. Will be coming back for sure.👍👍
