This was the first time I’ve gone for dinner. Usually I go for lunch/breakfast. But we went before the movies and our food was very tasty. I would have loved to see one or two more vegan options on the menu (lactose intolerant) as I was very limited as to what I could get. I wish I remembered the name of our server because she was incredibly joyful! (Tall, slim with pigtails). She was very cheerful and helpful & very much seemed to enjoy her job! So kudos to you and her. Steak was great, the chicken was also very tasty! Decor/vibe is great in there too! Thank you!
Very nice atmosphere and update from the previous iteration of this cafe.
This is the 2nd time I visited this place. Loved the food and the ambience. Mozzarella Pesto Grilled Cheese is a must try!
We’ve had the lamb shoulder pappardelle the last 3 times we’ve been there, along with one of their other entrees and we are always pleased!
I really hope they keep that pasta dish on the new menu as well 🤞😋
Oat latte was great ... so much so I had to have twofold! Food was very average.
The interior is inviting though we chose to sit outside, which opens up to the Kensington community, lovely ambience with the right weather and it was glowing outside! We were treated well and the service was timely, never a moment without efficiency. We went for brunch so for food we had their staple go to and the Poutine which was amazing, came with super fresh Mimosa's. For our treat we got a Panacotta to share and it was one of the tastiest deserts I've had to date! Over all an awesome experience.
My wife and I always love going to Vendome, the staff always hit it out of the park. The food is always amazing and love the revolving menu so every time there are new dishes to try which is super refreshing as apposed to the same old all the time. Would 110% recommend to anyone.
Good quality food, great service
A bit expensive for what you are getting. Servings are in the small side, but good atmosphere
Had the one egg Benny with pulled pork and hollandaise sauce. Was well made. The potatoes were just ok. Will be back.
Was disappointed to find that their menu changed significantly from previous. Bought a double eggs benny, which I used to come here for often, and found that it was half the size for a similar price to prior. Super disappointed in the value, as this restaurant used to be a lot more bang for your buck.
Great date spot - service is great and the atmosphere is good vibes
Broccoli/Halloumi salad has WAY too many croutons and not much Halloumi.
Fries extremely salty (and we both love salt!)
Have never been here before, but came for dinner for the first time. I liked the portion sized of the food because it keeps me from overeating, though some may say they are small for the price. My whole family agreed dishes were on the salty side, especially the cod, and we are by no means low-sodium consumers at home. I think maybe dinner isn't the best at this restaurant, but the rave reviews about breakfast and lunch still make me want to come back and try those menus instead. The restaurant is really pretty and the servers are great. My family was the loudest table ruining the ambiance unfortunately because we have a few loud talkers. Hope to come with less people some time to try the breakfast and lunch!
We have been here for lunch, but this was our first time having dinner at Vendome. Or server was very good, giving us just the right amount of attention. The food was delicious…we will be back
Our anniversary patio dinner on a Tuesday eve was lovely, but then there seemed to be a meetup off moped/motorbike/Vespa owners right outside and the noise level leapt. Loved the white bean dip ‘share’ and the mains - a huge portion of ribs for him, a small (but tasty) entree for me of mushroom barley risotto, which was very yummy. Maybe a side of bread/crostini or veg, tho the sprouts on top we’re very fresh. I’d definitely return, just not to the patio on a Tuesday night! First visit here was tasty and the service was good.
Quaint and unique cafe, wonderful and friendly service and the food was delicious!
Food and coffee was really good but they clearly had too many tables for the amount of staff. Staff was very kind given the situation but it was awkward always trying to track someone down to get any sort of service.
Best eggs Benny I’ve had in a long time! Service was amazing! Will definitely be going back on the regular!
Food has been lackluster lately (undercooked pancakes and french toast, everything overly greasy). Service takes forever and the waiters seem bored and slow. Our drinks arrived lukewarm both times we visited in August and September.
Great service and food was exceptional. Can’t wait to go back
I’ve dined at Vendome for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have enjoyed every visit! The food is amazing!
The food and restaurant was good, however the service was very poor. Our table had to ask for multiple things to be brought to our table after we initially asked our waitress for but failed to do so after about 20 mins. We where never checked up on until our sever asked us if we wanted more coffee (but that was after the manager already brought us some). After we payed our server looked at our bills then dropped them on the table and didn’t say “Have a nice day” or anything like that, she just walked away.
Great vegetarian/vegan options.
We enjoyed our time at Vendome. There were smiles from all those working there. Our server was very pleasant and helpful when we asked questions about the menu.
The staff was extremely friendly and provide great service. The don’t have their coffee selection on the menu but do make delicious and pretty coffees. The food is delicious. I got the pancakes with pulled pork added and was delicious. Will be going back again to try out some more.
A great new menu by Chef Alejandro. A must try!
We hadn't been to town in 5 years. We visited this past week and were so excited to have breakfast at Vendome! The server was amazing, as was the food!! The cappuccinos are super delicious too!
The pistachio cake was over grilled and it was charred in certain spots so the burnt flavor overwhelmed all the other flavors.
The server was polite but checked in a little too frequently, she asked twice if we were done and if she could take away our plates while we still had food on them and were still eating. The constant check ins were an interruption to our conversation.
Great food and customer service. Great place for a date.
Dropped in for a quick bite. Shared the chicken and waffles. Could have had a bit more sauce and been a tad spicier but delish. Not your usual with syrup but with a yummy new twist. More sauce is always a good thing! We also shared the baby kale tomato side salad. Perfect afternoon snack!! Topped off with a hot (for me) and iced (for him) latte. Coffee was Devine!!
Hello Bruce, thank you fo dining with us recently and e hope you'll be back soon!
Food was great and service friendly and accommodating as we had a very young baby with us.
Hello, thanks for dining with us and for the feedback!
Our waiter Nathan was terrific. He answered all our questions about the menu especially in regards to my dietary needs. If he didn't know he would ask the kitchen. The food was great and arrived quicker than expected.
Hi Teri, thank you for the compliments of Nathan, we will pass it along!
Had the shredded roasted lamb salad. Size was good, however, could have used a variety of items. The dominant items were roasted red pepper and pickled shallots. Needed more cheese, etc.
Fine brunch menu although some items a little too substantial (3 eggs?!) Nice to see servers in comfortable shoes and clothing. But my friend and I were a little overwhelmed by the table of 7 young people seated next to our table, both because of sudden screeching (but joyful) noise level and distancing issue. But I love the new lay-out with bar counter and big windows onto the kitchen.. I've not been at the Vendome in 2 years.
Hello Myrna, thanks for visiting Vendome recently. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Couples date night at Vendome was good but not wonderful. Service was warm but a little slow at times. Main dishes were good.
First time eating dinner here. Outstanding service. Good food. The dessert (semi-fredo) was excellent, and the highlight of our meal. Highly recommend the patio.
I’m a regular at Vendone and have been for years… it was always a great experience but today was not at all! Service was extremely slow, and it wasn’t as busy as usual.
I’m also extremely disappointed in the quality of food and the new menu
A lot of the favorites are gone.
The fried chicken sandwich was absolutely sad. The bun overwhelmed the tiny little chicken thigh (which was over cooked) and a small smattering of fries… for $17 - it was not at all up to my regular Vendome expectations
Another outstanding experience. Chef Ali made an exquisite salmon dish, and the grilled squid & bean dip were fabulous. Great wine and cocktails as well. The service was personal, friendly, efficient and we were made very welcome, as always. Special thank you to Brie and Paula.
Beautiful food. Wonderful service. Our neighbourhood favourite.
Really nice! Really great service
