Manager was excellent- they found an error on my bill and called me and fixed it proactively. Service and food was great. Love the new menu
The food and service was great! Definately will tell others and come again.
As a vegan it was a pleasure to dine at a restaurant that was able and prepared to cater for my food choices while dining with a group of non-vegans. The Falafel and Chickpea Bowl was not only tasty it was also very filling for a hungry vegan. I have left too many places and search for a protein bar to fill me up after a salad and grilled tofu left me unsatisfied. O&B do a much better job here than in their landmark Canoe venue.
Wait staff rushed us out of the restaurant despite it being empty. She brought the cheque and the pay terminal without even asking if we would like dessert/tea/coffee. The meal was very good and well worth the money. Ambiance is nice.
Noisy and slow service although not busy. Pizza was good. :)
Great patio and drinks, but $23 for a glass of wine seemed a bit out of line, even for Toronto. Our server was not that attentive, and I’ve had better food. Thus the 4 stars overall.
Great place to have a delicious meal and gear up for the show! The menu is varied with lots of options for a large group, everyone can find an option for their particular taste buds. Awesome cocktail selection and lovely atmosphere, classy and modern... the perfect place for any occasion.
There was a large hair in my food. Ruined my meal.
The salad that I got was quite bland.
Service was very poor. Food tasted like it was under a warmer for a long time and was over cooked.
We came for our 42nd wedding Anniversary before going to the ball game.
We had to ask 3 times for a waiter to come see us and get drinks. When the busgirl, flagged him he told her to go bring us water and he would be back. but we still had to ask again. The restaurant was not that busy so I'm not sure why this was such an issue. At lunch time you need to be in and out.
Food was delicious and the service was exemplary. Thank you for making our visit so lovely!
Great terrace to sit on on a nice day. Food was excellent, we had the fried cauliflower, piri chicken and the black cod.
It was very noisy and waiters were overworked. Food was great.
I ordered a meal I had previously, the falafel super bowl, but it was nowhere near as good as the last time. The falafel was almost rubbery and overall the dish just didn’t taste that great. Our main server was really friendly but there was this one server who would bring out our food, who was such a disaster. First he brought our main dishes out before the starter. The manager proactively apologized and comped us for the starter which he didn’t have to do. When our main dishes wear set in front of us he just slapped them down on the table, with zero finesse. When our tea was brought out there weren’t any spoons provided for stirring or any type of sweeteners offered (sugar, raw sugar, honey). I’ve been here a few times and I’m happy to say that none of my previous experiences were anything like this. But last night’s experience is hard to overlook. With so many other options in Toronto, I likely won’t return.
Excellent restaurant great service and good food
Excellent food, service and location. Enjoyed the patio! My dinner partner required a gluten free meal and it was delicious! Will be back...
Error on my order. Late arriving but the manager comped my meal.
Took about 15 minutes before our server offered us drinks, food came timely and excellent tasting, but nobody asked how our
Meals were, or refill on drinks ! Not the usual
Very nice atmosphere, the food was wonderful and we had an amazing waiter, he was polite, professional and attentive......the best waiter I've had in a very long time!
Staggered service was odd, as two different people were delivering and taking our orders. But generally, this was a tasty meal - the mushroom soup and salmon bowls were a highlight.
Although the food quality was fine and the wait staff and kitchen accommodated my dietary restriction, I found it to be expensive for what it was. We had one pasta dish, one main course which was a salad and a grilled piece of salmon, two beers and one wine spritzer, the bill with tip was over $90. There was no bread at the table and wait staff were a bit distracted.
Excellent as always. Love the mushroom soup. Fairly priced. Great service. Easy to book.
Beautiful space, delicious food, and friendly service all around! We really enjoyed our time and look forward to going back again!
Food and service is always perfect. Have never been disappointed with either.
I was very disappointed in not only the service but the quality of food.
Table and glasses were dirty
Raptors parade celebration
Service was slow, and not that busy. Either management doesn’t know how to staff properly or our server was just lazy; had to flag her multiple times to get water, more drinks, condiments etc. Food was fine but nothing great. Probably wouldn’t go again.
This is the second time I have been there and I enjoyed the Oliver & Bonacini Care and Grill just as much as the first time. I will go back again when we go to the theatre. A very pleasant experience!
Server was very rude, not engaging.. looked like he didn’t want to be there. Food was ok, expected more based on reviews. My family noticed rice was undercooked and he claimed that that’s how it’s supposed to be. Terrible customer service skills.
entirely mediocre except for the service. I wouldn't recommend
Food that caters to many tastes and is well thought out. And delicious! Serving staff was lovely, location is great, ambiance fantastic. Definite recommend.
The food selection was excellent and we got some helpful suggestions from our waiter on what to order. Great food, nice ambience and perfectly located to attend any event close by. This is my go to place for pre-entertainment dining!
Nice patio. Food was okay, but not great. Everything was a bit too salty. The toasts were burnt.
Everything about O&B works. Fantastic service and outstanding food. Mac n cheese with bacon I still dream about and delicious pizza. Highly recommend and will return when I visit again.
Overall great experience. There were a couple small issues with the drinks but management was quick to resolve in a fast and friendly way. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great place to eat downtown. If I could recommend one thing for the restaurant to consider offering, gluten free pizzas.
The server was very attentive and provided good insight to the menu options. The wait time for food was as expected and the food was excellent.
Such a great place to gather with friends before a show or a ball game. We always appreciate the innovative menu choices and friendly, efficient service by the staff.
Food was terrible and service even worse, other than the ambience, it’s pretty mediocre
