We usually come to Oretta for bottomless mimosas and have always had a fabulous experience. Today we opted for bottomless mimosas and the mimosas were essentially orange juice, no champagne. We had to ask our waiter if it was possible to remake them which he so kindly did, however we got cut off pretty early. We were told it’s a new policy with how much alcohol they can serve in a mimosa, however if this was the case we would have just split a bottle of Prosecco and added orange juice ourselves.

Overall, if you’re going here to have the bottomless mimosas, don’t. Otherwise food is good.

The Oretta patio was lovely for brunch, and my friend and I both did the $45 deal for bottomless mimosas, a menu item, and a (large!) donut which we thought was great value. The patio was a little noisy being on the street, but it didn’t take away from our experience. Service was kind and attentive. Looking forward to returning!

Nice to sit outside on a patio with lots of big umbrellas. Very friendly service. Really enjoyed the pizza and the pastas and the Happy Hour drinks. Not to much traffic on this part of King Street. Will be back!

A must-visit cozy restaurant during this patio season. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Great service and amazing food. The price can be a bit steep but they have a good deal called Aperitivo Hour so it is worth checking them out before you book.

It was great to be back to outdoor dining! It was an on/off rainy day and they accommodated me to a table with the umbrella covering. Food is delicious and price is great! I miss the indoor look of the restaurant, hope to dine indoors again!

Paid $80 total for 4 drinks. Found it overpriced for what it was, one of the drinks I ordered off the menu tasted pretty awful. Patio is super close to the streetcar tracks, meaning it can be loud. Probably wouldn't go again

All over was great .
The service from the girl who was assigned for our table was phenomenal.
The food was well cooked .
Being limited to outside dang ,we enjoyed the sun pretty much but the noise was a bit out of control .
Can’t complain though. I am happy to see Toronto is back in a revival mode.

My wife is ovolactovegetarian and was expecting a great risotto for the first time we went to a patio restaurant after long months of lockdown. Then they came with a small portion that was just made of rice, almost nothing else. So it wasn't worth the price. It would if the portion was bigger and there were more perks there! Also, I asked a bread basket that didn't come. I had to remind the server.

Since the pandemic restaurants are forced to higher their prices and make smaller portions

Unfortunately this is the 3rd and final time that we will be visiting Oretta. The food is great but the service has been terrible every time. The least accommodating place I've been to. We really have tried and only went back because of the food. Such a shame.

Excellent service and food! Unfortunately because of the grey zone we were sitting outside so late at night it got very cold. If you plan to eat anywhere really, plan a little earlier in the day!

Other then that, chef's experience was awesome, the food was great, and staff were wonderful!

I have been here before however this time was horrible, the food was not good at all and its a shame for such a beautiful restaurant. Due to covid we could not experience the inside and the patio was ok, for the prices the food was not good, my pizza was ok but my friends ordered the steak and was very disappointed.
