A fantastic place for brunch.
Great staff, Miles was our server and he was very accommodating and knowledgeable.
Our food tasted great and we were well taken care.

We had the poutine, kimchi fries, dumplings and brussel sprouts to start and all great. The top of the list was the brussel sprouts for sure!

Mains we had mushroom risotto and a king fu burger. Also very good!

And cocktails we had the pear Mimosas, 3 bottles worth and it was great!

Also the ambiance was very pretty and warm! Looooves it!

Looking forward to our return.

The restaurant itself is beautifully designed. Great patio too, perfect for people-watching. But the food was lack-luster.

Not the best vegan food I've ever eaten. It was fair, but relatively unflavourful. Not worth it for the price.

I had 2 drinks (peach cocktail and an espresso martini) and a brownie. I don't think either of my drinks had any alcohol and the brownie didn't taste like chocolate at all (though my friend thought so). The best part of my drinks were the peach gummies that were on the stick. Definitely not worth the price of the drinks.

Lov is an awesome restaurant in a vibrant neighbourhood. Not their fault but the parade of ridiculously loud motorbikes going by is an unfortunate casualty of being located on King St in the summer time! Would defintely recommend and go back!

We ate on a patio outside so it's not the restaurant's fault that motorcyclists kept revving their engines as they drove by. The cocktails were great! The food was ok. I tried the mac and cheese which needed salt. Apparently the risotto is good but it's the most expensive dish on the menu. I would go back!

Love the food and the place is very nice.
We prefered to sit inside as the day was too hot to sit outside without any umbrellas, so maybe they should have one umbrealla to each table for shade and if it rains as well.

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here! Service was kind and food was yummy - I had the King fu burger which was fried tofu - it was so crisp and fresh burger buns. My friend had the curry and she said she enjoyed. Drinks were good too! If you're looking for vegetarian/vegan food somewhere fancy/cute, this is a great option.

The atmosphere and the style of the restaurant is great. The service was great too. But the food is "okay" or "good" at best. Would not go back.

I took my mom and sister here and they have never eaten vegan. We ordered the dumplings, poutine, risotto and coconut curry and we enjoyed the meal very much. The decor was cute and love the atmosphere. Service was quick and prompt.

Only complaint was the coconut curry, the rice was too al dente and faine of the butternut squash chunks were undercooked.

Just went last night as indoor dining was permitted again. My friend and I shared a bunch of dishes (highly recommended to do so you can try a bunch of things). The mushroom risotto and poutine were the most favourite dishes but the real stand out was Carolyn. She was absolutely awesome and took great care of us! Can't wait to come back !

Risotto was nice. Menu wasn't too impressive. I was here a couple of years ago and nothing has changed. Still the same options.

It was really good food, I had the tacos and they were super creamy and delicious. Cocktails were very good as well, not to mention! Our server was super nice and funny. Its a bit loud because the patio is on the street but it was still super fun

We went there on a Sunday afternoon. We were sat in the patio and our table was ready in no time. The patio is not heated but the weather was awesome so no complaints.

We ordered the Brussels sprout and the dumplings for appetizer. Both were really yummy and satisfying. For entree we got their burgers and tacos. The burgers come with a decent side of fries and the portion size is overall very good, and the quality as well.

After dinner we got their signature drinks (their potion), the lavender latte and the golden latte, both with oat milk. We enjoyed both as it was getting a bit chilly but flavor-wise, the lavender latte was a bit bland and underwhelming. The golden latte was really delicious though. We also got their cheesecake and brownies. We were really happy with the flavor, but as with most vegan desserts, the texture was a bit dough-y.

The service was kinda slow and they looked understaffed, but they were nice and professional. Going by the location, you can expect the patio tables to be noisy, but we live in a quiet neighborhood and frankly missed the sound of downtown.

Overall, great experience. I’m not vegan but I will definitely pay them another visit once dine-in opens :)
