The food was wonderful & the overall aesthetic of the restaurant is beautiful, however it’s a shame the service is terrible.

Perhaps the restaurant was understaffed or the server was new/training.

Server was so busy that they never came by to check on us - we always had to call someone over if we needed something. We sat by the kitchen … we were sweating and had to ask for the AC to be turned on…even though we requested the patio. Our table wasn’t ready for the time we booked. We were told because there was an event happening we had to order all of our food at once which was not what our table wanted to do, it felt very forced and we had to make a quick decision on what we wanted to eat to ensure that we could get our food in time. I’ve been before and the experience this time was not the same at all

Our table was so dirty. I could see even dust on our table. And there was so many flies, and their sofa interior is so bad. The interior sofas were a little too old and were inconvenient when sitting down.

Celebrated a special occasion here! Very great pick if you want to impress your guests. The aesthetic vibe was just beautiful inside and outdoors on the patio. The food tasted amazing the server was nice and helpful. The only thing that bugged us was the fruit flies that constantly kept swarming my party and was shocked with total of bill actually affordable and not over priced as other restaurants on King street. Will definitely come back again.

Beautiful little lunch stop. We were hoping the cafe would have more options and far as desserts/pastries/cookies but what they did have was amazing. The crepe cake was FANTASTIC. We had a few other lunch items too, overall yummy, nothing that was a huge hit, except that damn cake, whoa. Coffee was yummy too.

Food service a little on the slow side but they were pretty busy. Main complaint is the washroom are not kept clean which is a big no no. Home management can take control of the situation.

Food was great, I had the Bottomless mimosa brunch option which was worth it. Food was great in terms of taste and portion. Service was friendly though a bit slow, but my group were catching up so it wasn’t too bad. Menus were online and tables were nicely spaced apart from each other.

The food was very overpriced for the quality they serve. The food is “ok”, but charging $19 for two small slices of toast with avocado is just outrageous.

Food is fantastic 10/10, everything on the brunch menu we tried was delicious. Our server was also very attentive and sweet. Unfortunately, giving 3 stars for the hostess/greeter experience. Very rude and not friendly at all. Also, clarified a few days prior if it rained if we could be seated inside and was told no (understandable if you are fully booked as I was told). A very unpleasant conversation for a very simple answer was not necessary. Confusing part is day of we were automatically moved inside due to the rain. There are many places on this street that offer much better service which is unfortunate since the food and ambience is lovely here. Would only recommend if customer service improves.

The food was very good. We did the 7 course tasting. Some dishes were exceptional - the veal roulade - the incredible lemon meringue tart - but all were lovely and interesting. The outstanding service is what made this place shine. We were doted on when needed, but given lots of room to chat and enjoy our outing. I wish I remembered our Irish servers name. He was like the conductor running the orchestra - and so funny. Oretta - he is a real keeper. Dont let him go.

The food was amazing and servers so friendly. We ordered a bunch of apps off the happy hour and regular menu and they were all 10/10. I especially enjoyed the fried zucchini flowers and mushroom pizza. Portions were decently sized, we were stuffed with 5 apps shared between two people + dessert (the tiramisu was huge). Despite the patio being on a busy street, they had screens set up between diners which really blocked out background noise. Overall, great experience and would come again.

My meal felt super rushed. I was constantly reminded we only had the table for 1 hour 45 minutes. Server kept rushing us to order instead of giving us time to enjoy a cocktail first. You go to a high end restaurant for the experience not to be hurried to the point you can't enjoy the flavours offered.

The outdoor seating area was nicely done despite being located right next to the road. There was quite a bit of dust and dirt that flew around as a result, the water in our cups kept getting flecks of whatever was being churned up by the traffic and wind. However, that is no fault of the restaurant. The food was great, large portion for the price and the drinks were great! I would like to highlight that what truly made this experience five star was the service we received, especially by the server that was assigned to us. She was friendly, cheerful and extremely personable. She communicated the restaurants expectations on length of time we were able to remain for the meal and was very respectful, keeping us mindful but not rushed in any way. We would certainly return to dine at Oretta.

The 7 course tasting menu was decent, however, we found that not much meat/protein was included - mostly vegetables with heavy cream based sauces. After reflecting on each of the individual items received post meal, we concluded that each dish was either quite creamy or on the heavy side right down to the dessert which was a chocolate cherry torte cake. Next time if asked about preferences, I would definitely ask for less cream based dishes and more seafood/meat. Service was okay, however, we did not receive our first appetizers until 45 minutes after arrival at the restaurant, all which were cold at that point.
