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!

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 🤞😋

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.

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.

Mussels outstanding.
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!

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.

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.

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.
Super disappointing.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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
Very disappointed
