Went with two friends and we all were very happy with our dinner. The wine list was great and the food was awesome. They have a great selection of food and a ton of veggie options. We aren't vegetarians but went with a mostly veggie dinner and it was great. Our favourites were the cabbage, fried cauliflower and squid. But everything was delicious!

It was the first time I had been to Donna Mac,

I was excited to try since I love the team @ Vine Arts so much!

Our server was lovely. She made great recommendations to us.

Our mock tails were great, I’m expecting and so anything that tastes like it could have actual booze in it but doesn’t makes me so happy!

Our dessert was our favourite: Avocado Pudding - do it.

The balance of the dishes were great, with the exception of the Lamb Ribs. The dishes consistency made us think that it could have been made in a crock pot.

The service piece that disappointed us is that there was a 30 -40 minute gap between the sourdough, falafel, carrot dishes and the lamb + broccoli. No one came to check on us during that time and we couldn’t find our server to ask her why the delay. I’m assuming she went on break and there was some sort of drop in communication.

The Tuna Crudo & the Hanger steak were our favourites! We also had the porcini and gouda crullers, which were like a cheesy churro with a slightly sweet exterior. Nice ambiance, great food, and fantastic service. Overall, a great dining experience!

My husband and I went here for brunch at a recommendation from a great friend. To be honest, this is not our sort of place we would normally go. The food, service and ambiance at Donna Mac was great. Our server was amazing and he went above and beyond while serving us, even bringing out extra spicy mayo as he could see how much we loved it! I would highly recommend this place for a wonderful brunch!

Always one of my favourite spots except today! Sadly the service was very slow. Despite being busy every time I’ve been there, the service is usually attentive and fairly prompt. The food is always great. However I asked for ‘low char’ on the grilled veggies as I get nauseated from the ‘burned’ flavour. The broccoli arrived well grilled and lots of char.
It took a long while to have someone come by to check on if we were ready to order. My drink order was taken and my friend was ignored. The veggies arrived about 15 min after the order was placed, the first main arrived about 10 min after that. I enquired twice if my main was on the way. Yes it is... but I was still with no main course while my friend politely left her lamb to get cold while waiting for my food to arrive. I had to refill my water glass myself. Twice. Left without my main course due to the delays. The attention level was too low for us to have a good time out. Hopefully this was a once only experience.

Ambience is beautiful. Bright and clean. The dishes are meant to be shared but are only the size of a one person serving. I think the restaurant was too busy for the chef to keep up, therefore taking away from the quality of food. The risotto was quite bland.

Was able to secure short notice reservations at Donna Max on a week night for a larger group so that was a positive thing. Did not know the restaurant and was very impressed with getting a reservation, ambiance and service. Our server had great suggestions. The restaurant was also appropriately quiet so we could have good conversation.

I’ve a dedicated hour for lunch as I’m a nearby office worker. And it is tough to have a lunch here (now twice) as it always takes so long to get the food. Again, I had to ask for a take away box. Can’t they be a bit more in the kitchen.

The gluten free desert alone makes the visit worthwhile!

We both ordered the Lunch express, it is such a good deal. Soup was Roasted Tomato and Chickpea; tasty and comforting on a near fall day. Main was Cod in Green Curry with Kohlrabi and Garlic Chips; just the right size for lunch, the curry was as I like it, a righteous blend of creamy and spicy that soothes and makes you pay attention. Compliments to our server who knew to bring out a soup spoon; this dish would not be properly enjoyed if eaten with a fork. Dessert for gluten gobblers was a cookie I have do doubt was delicious...however we gluten avoidant were served a perfectly proportioned Chocolate Caramel Mousse Barre topped with Sea Foam Crunchy Toffee... oh la la! so mouth-wateringly good!

This was my second lunch-time visit to Donna Mac and I wonder why I let so much time go by between visits. Will not allow that to happen again.
