Restaurant has a nice vibe - good for all types of meals but definitely more date night vibes. We went as a family with a toddler and still felt comfortable. Service was excellent - attentive, answered all our questions, friendly with the kid. Food was good, some standout dishes in the appetizers and share plates. Was surprised as I expected more of the cafe vibe and food I've seen at lunch time. We will be back.

My friend and I had lunch at Vendome last week. We both had a cocktail (blood orange daiquiri & sangria mimosa) to start our meal. She ordered the smash burger with fries and I tried the lamb ragu salad. The salad was yummy, but the presentation of the lamb on top of the arugula left something to be desired. My friend enjoyed her burger and we both agreed the fries were great - crispy and well seasoned. We shared the dark chocolate brownie for dessert and it was phenomenal! We'll be back to try some other dishes soon.

This was our first experience at Vendome and we look forward to more visits in the future. The atmosphere is very inviting and the food was delicious (according to all members of our party). Our server, Kim, was attentive and looked after us well. All in all, a wonderful breakfast dining experience.

Food and atmosphere were great but wait times for service were too long. We had a reservation but were at our table for almost 15 minutes before someone took our drink order. It was very busy, they should have had more staff working.

I went for dinner which I’ve never experienced before as I usually get their brunch menu. Was totally impressed with everything we ordered, highly recommend the truffle puffs and peppadew peppers :) our waitress was amazing and even brought us free samples of gelato when we were too full to order off the dessert menu!

We had a lovely time at Vendome though I wouldn’t order the Chicken Parmesan again. It was ok but wasn’t very tasty and seemed dry and over done. It would be nice to see some potatoes or rice with this meal.

The service and ambiance were great.

The ribs were overcooked and dry, and the eggplant fries were horribly grease-laden. I would not recommend ordering this dish.

Food was excellent and service was very good. Only hitch was that our server knocked over our bottle of wine. We only lost about 1/2 a glass of wine but no attempt was made to compensate us for the loss. We thought perhaps a reduction in the bill or even a dessert might have been appropriate.

The service was horrific. Did not get asked once how our food was on any of the courses. No one filled our wine glasses the entire night. Our plates never got cleared, had to go up and ask to get them cleared and for a dessert menu. Food was fantastic, service was terrible.

It’s always such a vibe at Vendome Cafe. I was just slightly disappointed in my breakfast poutine, the potatoes were way too crispy and hurt inside my mouth when i chewed. It was very dry and not well put together as my eggs and hollandaise were brought separately hence making my breakfast poutine dish even more dry.

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.
