    We love the brunch at 1Kitchen; and have always wanted to come and try their dinner menu. As expected the food was great; and the dessert recommendation was spot on. The service was very friendly but a bit delayed - seemed like our waiter had tables across the restaurant, so the cycle times were long.

    This is my 4th time at 1 Kitchen. I come here consistently because I love that they are farm to table and as I have some dietary restrictions I’m able to find something off the menu here and there with some tweaks. 2 out of the 4 times the service was good. This last time I was disappointed due my order being messed up. I really wish the service was consistent. Will I stop going - probably not as again I love the stay healthy food they have - which is hard to find. They have the potential to be great if you get a really good server.

    Great place for a leisurely breakfast with friends. They enjoyed the standard breakfast the 6ix and I had the Croquemadame with the lovely peameal bacon, fried egg and cheese. Home fries were great with a couple of sweet potatoes added in with the white as a surprise. Service was attentive when needed and very discreet otherwise. The ambiance was pleasant - bustling and friendly but not too noisy. I would recommend this restaurant for breakfast or brunch.

    Beautiful ambiance and a nicely low dim, green leafy restaurant. Beautiful setting on king street and a quiet place to eat in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Good food, and very good service. As a vegetarian, there were not a lot of options, but the dinner menu was fairly small in general. For appetizers, we ordered the cauliflower tempura, not amazing and not bad, the taste was fairly bland. As my main, I ordered the “Green Goddess” salad. I do not often choose salads at a restaurant, but I must admit it was amazing! Again, not a lot of vegetarian options, but this salad was quite flavourful and healthy. As for drinks, we ordered the purple rain drink, great blend. We also ordered the rosemary Paloma, if you like sour drinks, you’ll love it, it was delicious. Beautiful ambiance and not overly loud, great for a first date.

    Took my friend out for her birthday. Called in advance to arrange for them to bring out a dessert with a candle on it. When we arrived at the restaurant the hostess told my friend that I had called regarding the dessert, ruining the surprise. In the end, they didn’t even end up bringing a dessert with a candle on it. Both my friend and I ordered salads with added protein. The asparagus salad looked like a starter. My salad was quite big but wasn’t special. Overall I would say I was disappointed, save for the service provided by the waiter.

    It would have been far better if there wasn’t a Jack hammer going during a Sunday brunch. We had to insist on sitting on the south end of the restaurant. The hostess did accommodate us, thankfully.

    Went for brunch and the Host was very accommodating due to our late arrival however the place they table inside was not the best due to the construction so I recommend to request a table on the right side when you arrive :) we decided to sit outdoors and that was perfect! The service was great and everyone was friendly. The quality of the food was very tasty and fresh. I wasn’t too impressed with the portion of the Avocado Toast - first time I see only 1 slide of bread so for the value I felt like the position didn’t represent that but my oat milk latte and dish was REALLY good! I would come back for sure!

    We were a group of 7, 5 from out of town, with tastes ranging from vegan to traditional American. There was something for everyone on the menu. Everyone thought what they had was delicious. The service was impeccable. The decor is attractive and spacious. It was a Saturday night and busy, yet the noise level was very moderate- we had no trouble hearing each other. All in all, it was excellent and I think we would all happily go there again.

    I booked 1 Kitchen to celebrate by Birthday on August 13 and from start to finish everything was great! I should add that I have some dietary restrictions and the chef has always been great about accommodating them. As you’ve guessed it’s not my first time 😉. I always get the seabass which was delicious! I love that they have great healthy options. I had the some green juice as well and members of my party enjoyed the dips with pita bread as well as the salad and seabass. For desert I had the apple crumble - delicious!!! I highly recommend for those who are health conscious. Hands down my go to spot!

Highly recommend 1Kitchen to anyone looking for a low/no waste kitchen. Drinks are super expensive but for a special occasion I think it’s fine.

    Loved this place! We got a bottle of local chardonnay that was wonderful. Started with the Kitchen Dips, a trio of chilled spreads with a generous supply of grilled pita and fresh veggies, including some heirloom varieties. For entrees, we had the smoked tofu with brussels sprouts and kale, and the pesto pasta with added grilled shrimp. Both dishes were thoughtfully presented and memorably good. Highly recommend this place!

    Being a hotel restaurant with appeal also to people not staying at the hotel, the food was good - this restaurant sources everything within 100km to support local produce, which I appreciate! The prices are a bit high in my opinion for the quality and taste of the food (burger and fries was around $28, and everything else was higher in price). The ambience was truly the best part, the decor is splendid and I loved the plants. Overall, it's a cute place to stop in, but I probably wouldn't return just for the food.

    We made the right choice to celebrate a birthday her this past Saturday night. We loved the decor and atmosphere, the food and drinks where excellent and best was the attentive and patience service Saveah (I apologize if I’ve misspelled that). They were fantastic! They are supported by Jessica who seemed to be a leader there. We will highly recommend and absolutely be back!

    We love coming here because it's very easy to park around One hotel. There's a big park where kids can play there first before we enter the restaurant. There's also street car right in front, and our son loves street car (keeps him entertained). The food and the services are great. We would definitely come here again.
