Food quality and wine selection was pretty good. Server was a little off but could be a weird time of year. Our table was a mix of plant based and non plant based so it's always nice when the server knows the menu well and can answer questions about certain menu item confidently. Our server was a little confused about details but still double checked for us which we appreciated. One of the orders came out cold but the server replaced it with no questions and they took it off the bill. Overall pretty decent.

The spicy chicken sandwich is fantastic, but be prepared for some heat!

Love the ambience in both the dining area and bar!

Service is excellent - fast, and the servers are super kind!

First time at O&B, server Jenn was excellent and very friendly, helped us enjoy the moment even more. The food was good, veg lasagna tasted amazing even though I don't normally like veg dishes. Would come again for sure.

Did buck a shuck with the purchase of a wine bottle. Recommend the Jump! white wine, it was great! Ordered 2 dozen oysters, but only received 23 oysters - the waiter immediately went to the kitchen and brought us another one no questions asked. Great service, would come back again.

5 women out together for the first time since December 2019 for a day trip to Distillery District Christmas Market. After a wonderful day we had reservations at O&B for dinner. Was a lovely way to end our day. Superb food and wonderful and friendly service. I have eaten here before but my 4 friends hadn’t. They all enjoyed their meal and commented on how they would definitely recommend this restaurant to others! Well done and Thank you! Merry Christmas!!

Friendly, helpful service. Relaxing ambience. Delicious cocktail.
However, I wanted more of the fish and chips. Very ordinary. Fish was ok but fries were lacklustre. I expected O&B’s food to be at a higher level than that. I’d heard good things prior to going, so maybe I shouldn’t write them off before trying another dish.

Great food with very nice friendly service. Was a very nice evening. As a possibility of improvement, a Small Suggestion to pay a little more attention to condition (multiple light bulbs burned) and cleanliness of the washroom.
Thanks and see you soon again.

We ordered fish and chips + wine bottle and $1 oysters for dinner. After receiving our oyster order and our second oyster order, we realize our server forgot to punch in our fish and chips order. When we brought it up to our server, he said sorry - did not offer to place the order in. He also did not offer any thing else to us for the inconvenience.
