Offering up an atmosphere that’s both fun and relaxing, this cozy neighborhood spot is the perfect place for any occasion. The chic and stylish décor is only outdone by a menu that has something for everyone. With food that is rooted in contemporary American technique, Roux offers classic dishes with Chef Derrick Markland’s own twists. Comfort foods like hushpuppies and gumbo are complemented by more adventurous favorites like catfish and jambalaya, with daily specials that are sure to please. Though the open kitchen is the focal point with its up-close dining experience and custom industrial barstools, the bar is not to be ignored. With its large oyster bed and selection of bourbons, it’s a great spot for a night cap. During the summer there’s nothing better than having a pint from one of Toronto"s local breweries and people watching on the patio. With its location in the steadily growing Junction neighborhood, Roux is a place for everyone to feel at home.

    Great place, excellent food. Menu was a little “meat” heavy, but the meals actually had a good balance of vegetables. Would prefer some options to substitute pork for a veggie option.

    Our dinner at Roux was amazing! I had the Arctic Char, and my friends had the Cat Fish. Both dishes were delicious, as was the starters of Mac n Cheese balls, and the cornbread (divine!) The cocktails were delicious, and quite affordable, considering the typical price of a drink in Toronto. The service was great, and I particularly love that I can walk from my house to here. Great restaurant in the hood!

    There is nothing better than going to a restaurant with no expectations and being delighted with everything you are served. My husband was in the mood for spicy food so I searched open table for some possibilities and landed on Roux. The food was excellent. Not knowing how big the portions would be we split an order of mussels in white wine sauce as an appetizer. While sharable, we could have each had something as it wasn't overly large. I had the special which was Arctic Char - it was perfectly cooked and delicious. My husband had the jambalaya, which was spicy and exactly what he was craving. For dessert we shared an order of waffles with ice cream. Those were the best damn waffles I have ever eaten and I'm still thinking about them days later. We will definitely go back. There was a lot on the menu that looked great.

    A wonderful dining experience! Dishes are exquisitely prepared and presented, from appetizers to entrees to desserts. There's a good selection of wines and other alcohol. The server was attentive and gracious and the ambiance is pleasant, with tasteful music and lighting, so you can enjoy your conversation. I'm looking forward to bringing friends here to savour the Creole dishes, as well as the variety of other dishes offered.

    I booked this restaurant for New Year's eve through Open Table. I checked the website and found many attractive items on it that both my wife and I could eat. They purport to be Cajun style, and since we've been to New Orleans, we very much enjoy that type of food. My wife has several allergies, but the menu had enough items that were attractive to us. And I was particularly interested in the jambalaya. So, on New years Eve, we drove to the restaurant from our home in Newmarket, a distance of 85 km one way and 1 1/4 hours. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere interesting. Unfortunately, with no mention of this on their website, they gave us a fixed price menu for the meal, a choice of 3 beginnings, 3 mains, and 3 deserts. For the mains, for example, one choice was a short rib with "apple puree flavouring. My wife is allergic to apples. The second choice was something with shrimp and seafood. My wife is allergic to that. The third choice was a vegan dish with more objectionable ingredients which neither of us like. Frankly, I did not drive all that way to eat vegetables. The only wine listed was a red for $130.00 a bottle. Glasses of wine were not available for purchase. Again, my wife is allergic to red wine, and I was allergic to the price. The waiter was unable to (or refused to) give us anything from their regular menu. So, after driving all that way, we were forced to leave, going out into an unfamiliar neighborhood to look for another restaurant that had space for use. We wound up at the Lakeview Diner, where we had a very satisfying, non allergic dinner. In all fairness, I can't comment on the quality of the food, as we could not eat there. Had the restaurant put on their website either that they had a special New years menu, or if they had published such a menu, we simply would not have gone there. This was a special occasion for us, and we certainly don't drive nearly 200km round trip just for dinner. Very dissapointed.

    A great experience. Food and drinks were excellent. Especially liked the over-the-top caesar.

    Something has changed. Both the food and service were below what we have experienced in the past. Server was pleasant but relatively inattentive even though the place was only half full. Watched the bartender make a cocktail by pouring each of three ingredients into a cocktail glass over ice-no shaking no stirring. Both drinks and food came out in increments - meaning some of us had food and/or drink while others were still waiting. The food itself was fine. A real meh experience. Sadly don't think we will be back.

    We have been to your establishment once, which led us to suggest to some friends that we dine there. The ambience was comfortable and the food was very good. We have been to New Orleans and I found the Jambalaya to be just as tasty. The serving staff was quite pleasant and prices reasonable. Would certainly recommend Roux to friends and expect to enjoy the experience again
